I'm not quite sure where the break down is when there is a disaster, natural or otherwise. I know that the oil spill and the resulting disasters can be fixed. It just isn't happening. I know that the high-tech exists, but, we are tapping into it and/or "they" (the high-tech peeps) aren't stepping up to make it happen. Bill Gates and Steve Jobs should stop all of the competing and team up with their techies to find a cure. Sell it to BP or the government if you have to and make money from it. I don't care. Just do it. Just fix it. It's either that or close down the Gulf and call it a wash. This is no joke folks. Fix it.
