You KNEW this was going to be the conclusion of this disaster. You KNEW it was going to not only be larger than the Exxon Valdez incident by orders of magnitude but you KNEW it would end up being the largest oil spill in human history.

What we didn't know is what some geologists are holding back, that the explosion that took place was due to a massive underground infrastructure of gasses that has totally compromised the seabed.

Capping this oil spread will be the engineering task that will make building the Pyramids in Egypt look like putting together those old styrafoam Flinstone's toy houses back in the '60s.

And hurricane season is upon us. Just one, just ONE decent sized hurricane will spread that stuff all over the southeast, Caribbean and maybe Texas.

Can someone say EFFED UP?
