27,000 Abandoned Wells in the Gulf, Some Could be Leaking?

There could be some more bad news for the Gulf … Shepard Smith had on Bob Cavnar, a former oil industry executive.

Apparently, more than 27,000 oil and gas wells are believed to be abandoned in the Gulf, including some that have been abandoned since the 1940’s! The sad part is, Cavnar thinks some of the abandoned well’s whereabouts are unknown to authorities and could still be leaking oil! For more information, check out Bob Cavnar's blog, http://dailyhurricane.com/.
