I am sorry but you have no idea of what you are talking about... Stop it with the freaking nuke idea...there might be some dumbass researcher/politician who might get it in his head to try this, and trust me there are such people.... Do you people put any thought to crazy ideas like this one?...
Using a nuke at the bottom of the ocean will increase the pressure exponentially of the oil and gases and this will open up more holes all over the bottom of the ocean not to mention that the ocean would now be irradiated, as well as ocean life, thanks to the toughtless idea from people like you...
Stop watching those sci-fi movies where they solve all problems in the world with a nuke... they also have no idea of what they are talking about.

FYI. The Russians have used nukes to cap oil wells for years.

Meaning, use toxic dispersant to mask the surface spill, force reporters off beaches, refrain from showing the floor cam in the first place, under report/ underestimate numbers, and keep challengers of the clean up process at bay to avoid any witnesses.
This all goes towards damage claims. Use your brain.
