At last BP, under the watchful eye of Coast Guard, is making a realistic attempt to stop the flow of Oil some 80-plus days after it began. Now we get to find out if it works.

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

OK, this has become the oil industry laboratory from hell. We hope with all our hearts and souls that this latest approach to cap the well works and doesn't blow. But, clearly, the industry has ventured into an area where it has no expertise or experience. Spinmeister bastards who profit will position this as a "valuable learning experience." They have no idea.
