perhaps explosives aint an option due the fragmented seabed...
remember the meteor impact (dino-killer) 65M years ago..at the gulf..

Blows my mind they completely walked away from the dome idea because it freezed up.

All they have to do is keep it warm enough (snuggie, hot pockets?) till they can place it, hook up and start pumping off the excess pressure.


I think it was just an excuse to give up the dome (which they knew would never work).

I woke up today to find that this had made it to the main stream news...


So other than throwing our hands up in the air, which i think would be a worthwhile exercise at this point, what else can we do?

Let's say other than nuking it... Though at may be the only option, im wondering what other tactics could possibly be taken?

There was a thread on thie last night.. I replied, i will believe the leak has stopped after a few days observation.. Like the Adm, the other morning.. people are quick to sat the leak is stopped. But as you see that guy was wrong.


People think bombing the well is a bad idea. but it had been used many time as a proven method to stop oil leaks.. much more so in fact than Top Kill.

They could use a method called ...Suck until dry ...

It's a method I think that takes place when a rubber tube is inside the oil hole then a machine turns on and sucks out all the oil until its done ..

It would work I think, But the problem would be finding a place to store all the oil under the gulf .

Okay, so...stupid question..maybe.....but obviously we've seen before in the ocean surrounded by water where they have set small leaks on fire in a "controlled fired" (which to me is an odd combination..because how can something possibly be a controlled fire? when it won't stop burning until the oil is all gone?) but anyway...back to my question. We've seen were they set small leaks on fire to clean up the oil. Is there any real chance of this oil igniting? at all? what about when it washes up on shore? you know..up in Alaska there might not have been the worry because ..and I could be wrong, but to my knowledge they don't get very many thunderstorms or hurricanes...with lightening...so say a thunderstorm comes in, or hurricane and we have lightening..is there any chance for the oil in the ocean or on the ground to ignite?

Also...in the very early stages of this spill..they were setting it on fire to clean it up..but then they stopped..why? is it because the spill is so much bigger than what they were saying? and we would clearly see how big it was if they let the fires continue? what if someone is just walking along the beach and throws down their lit cigarette? etc. I'm very stupid when it comes to this stuff, so if someone could just give me a bit of knowledge? thanks!

Maybe the oil would stop, if we (the peeps) commandeered HAARP ?

I thought haarp is to study radio science, how could that even work ?

Quick question. If this Top Kill is actually working, shouldn't after, what two? three? days shouldn't there be some hint that it's having some effect? Like the flow rate? cutting down a little.

They never believed it would work. The only thing they believe will work will be the relief wells that are 60 days out at a minimum. Have you seen the live cam recently? It is pouring out now...a geyser.

Gotta love the oil guys...9/11...war on terror...trillions in debt...complete destruction of the environment...sure they know what they are doing. They're always so confident they know whats best for everyone draped with the flag and carrying the cross.

Well, this seems to be working better the I bet obama thought it would. now Top kill Failed, this is reenforcing obamas no drilling policy. Did anybody happen to notice that oil prices went back up soon as BO ordered a freeze on drilling for six months?
Here's just a small clip from Rham Emanuel.

The next option after the failure of "top kill" is called the lower-marine-riser-package (LMRP) cap containment system. It involves an underwater robot using a saw to hack off the leaking pipe and place a cap over it.


news.bbc.co.uk...

This is the next big plan. really?

Anyone have any news of how far apart these "3 leaks" are?
Rumors of miles apart from the "main" leak.
Am I uninformed or as lost as everyone else?

The next plan sounds like a crock of # to me . But anything is good

There not even doing anything, except hoping peak oil is a lot closer than what they were even lying about. Something the earth produces faster than mankind can use it. These greedy blood guzzlers drive the prices up.

What a rackett. Who all believes oil comes from "dead dinosaurs" or
"ancient vegatation"?:

Kind of reminds me of Morgan Freeman in Deep Impact. "The comet remains".
