I say get Clearasil on the job, they are the experts in cleaning up oily bores... no, wait, thats oily pores... :p
In all seriousnous, I've seen multiple methods of oil spill control. Floating ropes to contain slicks, spray on clumping agents, oil eating
bacterias. These methods/ideas are like 10+ years old, yet I dont think any of them are a true solution to a disaster of this magnitude. In aus
recently we had a tanker ship ground itself into the Great Barrier Reef, it leaked a few barrels worth of oils and rightly so, it was all over the
news for weeks. To me, it seems like much of the USA does not seem to grasp the enormity of this monumental cock-up!
I bet in 20 years time, American school kids will be reading about this disaster and perhaps even go on field trips to the "seaside" with small
shovels in Louisianna. There, they will dig less than a few inches and find pools of this disaster.
Simply put, there is no real way of controlling this. Its too late, the damage is done. Whatever cleanup methods they employ will be the equivalent
of removing the gherkin from your cheeseburger.
