Remember When American Technology Was the Envy of the World?
So golf balls and old tires didn’t work. Now the best technology that BP’s engineers and Nobel Prize-winning Energy Secretary Steven Chu’s team of experts can must appears to have been thwarted as well. From a Washington Post breaking news alert:
Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen is saying that a saw has become stuck as it was cutting through a pipe on a busted well, stalling the latest attempt to contain the Gulf oil gusher.
Allen said Wednesday the goal is to free the saw and finish the cut later in the day. This is the second major cut in the effort to contain — not plug — the nation’s worst spill.
Allen says the first cut with giant shears was successful overnight.
