ROBERT, La. – As the nation remained transfixed by a busted oil well spewing millions of gallons of crude into the Gulf of Mexico, BP offered few details Saturday on its latest bid to plug the worst oil spill in U.S. history and scientists suggested any progress was incremental at best.
BP PLC spokesman John Curry said operations for the "top kill fix" continued Saturday, but he said he could not give a timetable for when the maneuver might be declared a success or failure.
Ok, so there are now huge blobs of oil, oil that is mixed with toxic dispersants. Might it be possible for one of these 'huge blobs' to get drawn to the surface, get picked up as sea spray or a waterspout.. and then.. in a flash of lighting, we might be activating the technology used to produce a FAE Fuel Air Explosive... the Feds cant talk about FAEs they are classified.
It may have been an FAE from the fuel oil MIST from the first fertilizer explosion.. a second later that collapsed the front of the Federal Building in OK - the oil soaked fertilizer just broke the windows to let the mist in...BOOM!
Imagine a 'plume' sucked up by a waterspout during a lighting storm...perhaps a math wiz could work out the potential TNT equivalent released during that blast... how far might that shockwave go?
The blob is the gas tank, the hurricane is the carburator, and lighting completes ignition...
BP Oil Plumes + Hurricane = Air Fuel Explosive?

The Russians have killed several out of control wells with limited yield nuclear devices. Everyone needs to get over the fear of using a nuke to seal the thing off. We need to call in the Russian experts that have done it before and get the thing sealed off.
A nuke will melt rock and crush enough of the well to seal it off and stop the flow. I think the risk of doing that is a lot less than what will be the result of all the feeble minded bumbling that is going on now.
