    Max Ruelokke needs to come back to earth. I have issues with two statements from Ruelokke,

    1) Our policies, procedures, training and equipment are such that it will not happen.

    This smacks of arrogance. Should I even get into the story of the Titanic.... ??

    2) But he said the operators of the Deepwater Horizon appear to have improperly replaced the primary barrier with a concrete plug that was not given the necessary time to set.

    In case Mr. Ruelokke isn't aware, the operator of the Deep Water Horizon, Transocean, has two rigs in our waters doing the same type of work as the one in the Gulf. These rigs operate in our waters under minimal supervision. The rigs are flagged in Panama for this reason. In case Mr. Ruelokke isn't aware, this company has a very dubious safety and environmental record even before the disaster in the Gulf.

    This condescending attitude is inexcuseable. Drilling at these depths should cease immediately! How much more evidence and pollution has to happen before the politicians stop these giant companies from destoying the earth. Their will be no future should these catastropic failures be allowed to occur!

    Confident??? So was BP until its rig caught fire and blew up........Confidence doesn't fix catastrophes...having the appropriate safety measures and well trained and reliable people can prevent and control unfavourable issues....
