Posted Fri May 21 2010: from Rep. Ed Markey, bless him.:
Live Video Feed of Gulf Gusher
Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA), Chair of the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming, has been a vocal advocate of transparency, and vocal critic of the BP and governmental response to the Gulf Gusher. May 19 he insisted on video; on May 20 it was purportedly available, and by May 21 was handling the staggering Web traffic to the "spillcam" (note: use MS Internet Explorer). Thank goodness we have politicians who use their positions for the public good, rather than to attain and retain power. Now, we can watch the source of multi-level biosphere death gushing from a mile beneath sea level. Now there can be at least a few better independent estimates (though high-res video is required for accurate assessment) of the outflow (kinda handy when you're doing, y'know, engineering and problem-solving). And because of this, BP had no choice but to admit that the always-know-to-be-bogus 5,000 barrel-a-day number was a dramatic underestimate. What you see gushing *already* has 5,000 barrels a day being extracted up to the surface, from BP's one small pipe, inserted a few days ago. Marvelous video of Markey and Waxman also worth watching.
