Take 8,000,000 round bails of coastal hay, load them on C-131's, open the back door and blow the hay over the spill. Once stabilized collect the oil ladden hay with surface skimmers and process by pressing to remove oil. Compact and bail the comtaminated hay, then burn it in power plants. Send BP the bill!!!!
I would like to hear comments from the "Drill Baby Drill" company.
I wouldn't expect much. People know that oil spills are bad, but not even people near it would actually be appreciably affected. "You've got to break a few eggs to make an omelette," or something might come up. Maybe call it a freedom patty instead.
Thats a pretty large area, everything within a 30 mile diameter must be saturated with oil... With the relaxed restrictions on offshore drilling, we can only expect to see alot more of this...
I heard the spill area has already surpassed the Exxon Valdez spill. Can someone confirm this, site the source and update the wiki as the spill continues to grow?
It is amazing Transocean, owning 140 operational rigs worldwide, utilizes no preventive technology for this scenario. I remember there was safety system for natural gas lines in the home that would drop a ball bearing into the pipe during an earthquake. This would block the gas, limiting the risk of explosion or fire. Is it not as simple as this? How about a large depleted uranium rod/stopper that drops down the line if certain shear or torsion tolerances are surpassed. A locking mechanism may be required, a more stable metal or even an activation button but you get the idea.
