A second leak?

Matt Simmons seems to think so, believing that the riser leak doesn't account for the observed oil plumes. (h/t Neil H)

Others have speculated that BP's early attempts at siphoning oil instead of shutting it down were motivated by a desire to salvage the well for profit reasons.

Anytime there's a crisis like this, critics of the official responses come out of the woodwork. Given we're now passing the 40 day mark and the oil is still gushing, perhaps it's time to listen to them.
