And continuing coverage now of the national disaster in the Gulf of Mexico today.
VP reports it is having success drilling relief well.
To take pressure off the gusher on the gulf war but tens of millions of gallons are already swirling around on the gulf and beginning to wash ashore in more places.
Take a look at this the -- has reportedly affected about 500 miles of coastline -- on the East Coast -- would stretch from New York to Wilmington, North Carolina.
On the West Coast this bill would stretch from San Diego that.
To Santa Rosa California just giving you an idea of how much area this would cover and along the Great Lakes region.
We're talking -- still stretching from Rochester New York.
All the way to Milwaukee Wisconsin man alive and as you know.
We've heard a lot of things from BP since all of this began in time and time again efforts to stop this bill that failed.
So what really is the worst case scenario here with -- -- as the head of the Canadian oil well fire -- company.
A safety boss Mike Miller is on the line -- experts talk to you again.
I shepherd very good I'm good how do you see this thing -- -- up now a lot of people begin to question whether they'll ever be able to get a handle on it.
Well I don't Paula competence in the world says that there really well well work when it's down.
The giant system it you know are what I'm hearing she didn't daughters that -- August Beatty early September if they do have to do.
Position in what they get down -- -- but I'm quite sure that'll work work better ties -- but there tell them but certain.
-- then there's no reason to believe that this well might be.
Below the -- floor.
Such that there could be -- below and as you try to cap but it would just sort of squirt out underneath them.
And compromise the surface they the floor there.
Well I'm not aware of any big -- -- -- did did it you don't despite would be what in question -- -- I'm not aware of any potential damage there there -- a question noble.
The man job involves but I really don't have that be so.
But that having been that people do really well because the ghost of the very bottom of the well would cure that -- and.
Is it your sense is it seems to -- everybody's that.
There -- just not getting the whole story on this thing and haven't from the beginning.
All I absolutely feel that -- I think you beat from the very start is minimized there's been death.
So there's very deep go to that you know we had a real struggle.
-- getting it on -- getting the proper camera footage.
And did you know as an expert sit every -- hundreds of these I really still all know this -- that the well they had.
The pipe -- he's just didn't think I well.
So that's -- you're always wondering what there's data what that means.
Oh they've been very -- would be joke that I suppose some degree.
No litigation is the tail wag the dog here but -- -- probably epitomized think.
You click clearly -- -- you know I think if there there are so many concerns now about people's health.
We're getting so many reports of people becoming sick and and we hardly hear about the dispersed since at all anymore.
This -- which Great Britain has the toxic in and then allow them there.
Oh I absolutely agree with that I mean that my own experience with -- -- well I'm not an expert -- say I don't think they do what they.
They support they do it I think they do make it visibly better good in the long run I'm not sure that any that it.
You know what this scientist -- I've spoken say.
Largely what they do is make it so we can't see it it doesn't make it any better it just makes it below the below the surface.
Though that's my understanding is -- -- is that.
But what did they do long term.
Better but I don't I don't see.
And what it the right now they're trying to capture more oil and we get so many different kinds of reports from them about about their ability to bring it up and how other than that -- that we've seen no video of this process.
And it makes makes a lot of folks skeptical you know.
Well I agree shepherd and as they -- I just don't think they're letting that deed goes though.
That this is certainly I need to try and make it accurate guess thing about night.
No this soldier keeps this dude is well below we didn't open the worst boat around the world -- I think it's you know this whole problem of they're -- they can get art I was really set this project back niche.
