Quotable: Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA) on the BP et al Gulf Oil Catastrophe

“Oh my God, what have we done.”

Sen. Barbara Boxer – Chairman, Senate Committee on Environment
“Right now, by their own admission, BP is largely making it up as they go. They’re engaging in a series of elaborate and risky science experiments at the bottom of the ocean. And after the failure of the containment dome, we are now hearing of plans to stuff the blowout preventor full of a mixture of golf balls, old tires, and other junk. When we heard the best minds were on the case we expected MIT and not the PGA. We already have one hole in the ground and now their solution is to shoot a hole-in-one.”

Rep. Ed Markey - Chairman, House Subcommittee on Energy and Environment

Words that should be etched in stone! Now where the heck did I put that chisel?
