More than a month after the Gulf Coast oil spill began, BP's next effort to plug the leak is to come at dawn Wednesday. BP plans to pump thick, viscous fluid twice the density of water into the site of the leak to stop the flow so the well can then be sealed with cement - the "top kill" procedure.

Presidential historian Douglas Brinkley and Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser will be digging deeper and discussing the politics and implications of BP's plan. Do you have questions for them? Let us know!

    Hey Anderson, here's a few questions that i'm sure will be hard to answer. I was thinking that hurricane season is coming up and with all the oil in the water, what does NOAA and the government plan on doing? Do we know if some will be avaporated into the air and when it rains it will leave a oily resado? And when a hurricane hits, do they know how bad all the oil is going to be on the houses and cars and everything?

    Why don't the other major oil companies step up with expert advice and assistance?

    Why not use all the major oil companies to help any way they can in the aid of this mess with BP footing the bill. It is in everyones best interest to fix this!! Might bring some other options to the table.

    Now see BP workers shoveling oily sand into plastic bags. Next I am sure we will see them cleaning each individual rocks with rags, like we did during Exxon-Valdez. My question is what are they doing with all of those bags of waste? Are they just digging a hole somewhere and contaminating another site?
