More oil spill incompetence

A novel but risky attempt to use a 100-ton steel-and-concrete box to cover a deepwater oil well gushing toxic crude into the Gulf of Mexico was aborted after ice crystals encased it, an ominous development as thick blobs of tar began washing up on Alabama's white sand beaches.

They (the oil company, the government and the environmental experts) didn't know it was cold down there? The Gulf Coast is doomed, if not from this spill, then from the next.
