Dear President Barack Obama and Dr. Tony Haywood (BP) by Chris Landau (geologist)

Action plan to stop the continuing oil blowout from the well drilled by The Deep Water Horizon Rig owned by Transocean and leased to BP.

Straight talk from geologist Chris Landau.

Dear President Barack Obama

President Obama, I would like you to Fire Coast Guard Rear Adm. Mary Landry with her comments like "I would caution you not to get fixated on an estimate of how much is out there." Every time she opens her mouth, she appears to not know what she is talking about. I remember a week ago when she assured us there was no more leaking oil. Rather tell it like it is. The world is watching and she is ten years behind in damage control mitigation. She makes you look bad.

Dear Dr. Tony Haywood (BP)

""This is highly imprecise, highly imprecise," agreed Doug Suttles, BP's chief operating officer for exploration and production. "We continue to respond to a much more significant case so that we're prepared for that in the eventuality that the rate is higher."'

What on earth are these platitudes about? Is this English? If so, it is highly imprecise.

I am sure you can find somebody who is more eloquent. BP needs intelligent people to help change the world. Two lines of wasted space. We do not want to listen to "nothing" talk.

Stop the ongoing oil blowout and stop calling it a "spill."

Was it spilt from the top? There was no tanker that spilt anything. This is the oil from deep below being blown up by huge underground pressures. Call it a gusher, if for no other reason than to create a sense of urgency. This is not one of those problems that will go away on its own accord. By the time this is over, the USA will have lost Mexico, The Central American Countries and all the Caribbean Islands as friends. They rely on their pristine beaches for tourism. This well will have destroyed it all. The speed of spread of oil is so rapid, despite the oil dispersants that are being dumped on it. You have grossly under estimated the flow. Imagine oil gushing uncontrolled from deep below the ocean waves. This may give you a picture of what is going on. Please do not use spill. That is silly and misleading.
