BP officials told members of Congress in a closed-door meeting that the oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico could be spewing as much as 60,000 barrels of crude a day, well over an earlier estimate of 5,000 barrels a day, according to reports on Wednesday.
I thought there was a plan to lower some cones over the leaks. From what I remember, it is supposed to occur sometime this week. I don't think its time to start using nukes which could just make the situation 10 times worse. Lets see if the original plan works first.

As much as I hate to say it, I think it might be time to nuke the well and seal it. Sure, it's harsh but really what options do we have left? Oil will not stop gushing from the earth until we seal that hole.
Unfortunately in this case the end will have to justify the means. At least it would be a productive use of a warhead.
