“Hope – the connection holds! Draining of the gusher begins”

Never in the history of modern man have those that care about nature and the environment had to watch with little to do, but visualized Mother Nature miraculously healing the wound in its sea floor dress.  Those that can be close are risking their own lifes to save those larger creatures covered

in oil. Countless numbers of sea creatures dolphins, porpoises, turtles, sea birds, shrimp, crab, fish, coral and mollusks will not reach the caring hands of the skilled volunteers that are tirelessly struggling against all odds to save a few of the trillions of living things affected by this gusher.

At least from the Exxon Valdez crisis,  the oil was from just one tanker, but Alaska is still cleaning up globs of oil from that disaster on their shores.

Black columns or plumes of oil have forced themselves out from the gusher.

They rise up for 10 miles in length below the visible slick in the Gulf of Mexico. (See video)

Some success!  BP for the first time in 25 days

In a major step toward containing a massive Gulf of Mexico oil leak, BP said a mile-long tube was funneling crude Sunday from a blown well to a tanker ship after three days of wrestling to get the stopgap measure into place on the seafloor.

The contraption was hooked up successfully and sucking oil from a pipe at the blown well Sunday afternoon after being hindered by several setbacks.

Engineers remotely steering robot submersibles were trying again Sunday to fit the riser insertion tube into a breach nearly a mile below the surface, BP said.
