The BP "Sippy Straw" Technique Is BS

BP Officials Now Claim that They're "Sippy Straw" Technique is collecting at least 2,000 barrels a day.  Instead of the 1,000 they claimed on Monday.  That would equal 84,000 gallons a day, versus 42,000 gallons.  (Please note: one barrel equals 42 US gallons)

So Based on This New Estimate They Now Have the Audacity to Claim They're Collecting 40% of the Spilling Oil.

Once again people, it's time to do the math!

2,000 barrels (84,000 gallons) would equal 40%. only if the spill were 5,000 barrels daily as BP continues to claim. Unfortunately however, even industry insiders acknowledge that the spill is at the very least 25,000 barrels a day.

Most independent sources, including the US Coast Guard and NASA Scientists actually estimate that the broken well is spilling, somewhere between 70,000 and 100,000 Barrels a Day.   So with those figures in mind, they may be only siphoning off as little as 2% of the current spill.

Now, the truth is, no one knows for sure exactly how much oil is leaking.  Most experts agree it would be helpful if BP would release a streaming video of the oil spill and not just a few seconds here or there.  So far, however BP refuses to do so.
