Lids and Robots No Match for BP Blunder

This video really depresses me... It shows a lame attempt to cap the massive British Petroleum oil spill off the coast of Louisiana. They're using a huge robot arm to lower a 100 ton containment dome onto the hole in the sea bed to no avail. Check out the massive rush from around the hole - the earth is bleeding! This band-aid will not stop it!

I appreciate the engineers who are trying to stop the damage, it's just depressing that this is what it's come to. Metaphoric on many levels...
