I was wondering if any of you have stumbled across the real general blueprint for fixing the oil disaster. All I've been able to find is articles about it, but I'm talking about an outline that they may currently be following. The closest thing to what I mean would be what one would write before creating a computer program. It doesn't have to be incredibly in depth with every variable for all possible plans, but a basic plan that has been either released by BP or put together from official sources. A pseudo example would be: I. facts of oil disaster -oil lost per day -money per barrel lost -percentage oil skimmed -percentage oil burned -etc II. Possible Solutions -Sol 1: a) estimated time b) estimated cost c) total estimated efficiency -Sol 2: ~ -Sol 3: ~ And then a logical ordering of solutions vs. money lost if each solution is not put in place, where the ordering is from most efficient/least damaging/fastest/etc. I'm assuming they should have this, but based on what they release to the public and the lack of progress made, it makes me wonder and kind of nervous given this seems like the obvious first step. It seems they may be just running around in circles doing the same things over and over again while shifting blame towards each other. If they do have an outline, I also don't know why more information is not released to the public for public assistance. It seems it would be pretty logical to drop the information they have into the internet and see how many knowledgable people 'want to be a hero'.
