I must say, the people left in this country that have the stomach to do any sort of public service anymore deserve a huge round of applause. Alas, many of them are also part of the problem. You have to have a special kind of body armor nowadays to care anymore.
You got that right.

...a nuke put down 10,000 or so feet below the sea floor sealed with Concrete then detonated...


I doubt very seriously if that will happen. It's never been tried in the ocean.

I prefer the bottom kill from the relief wells,that is some tricky drilling they are doing, impressive.

Nuke goes off and fractures all the rock above it and opens the whole bottom of the gulf over the reservoir and it all, every drop comes up at once.

Great idea!

New reports out that instead of focusing efforts and resources on cleanup, everyone's friends over at BP are now trucking in sand and just covering up the oil already on the beaches.

We need to fry those bastards.

Thanks for that link Jay. Ya know...those BP guys are either totally braindead or they're just grasping at straws now. They might hide one layer but the low tide will just uncover it. The next tide will just bring more and be uncovered again. What idiots.
