Top Kill not working to stop oil gusher

Apparently BP is going through the motions as a PR effort, but it's rather apparent that both the top kill and junk shot remedies failed to stop the gusher in the Gulf. Meanwhile, I'm trying to figure out why none of the experts working on solutions have considered this old method using oil eating microbes instead of the highly toxic dispersants.

I have no idea whether the person who posted this video is legit, but a quick google tells me bioremediation of this sort is long established science and it appears it's environmentally safe. So why are they using highly toxic chemicals whose long term effects haven't been proven yet? The cynic in me suspects it has something to do with money.
