There are differences of intellectual capabilities within ATS, as such differences in opinions which offers lively debates.
Nuking the seabed is certainly not an option unless there is a need, a guarantee of success, and the approval of all affected by the sea to live with
a radioactive ocean that is subjected to tides and currents which ultimately will flow around the world and affect everyone at latter stages.
Nuking the seabed is clearly an option the bastard BP would want, for it will become the host nation's fault if anything happens. It would gladly
wash its hands off, remove its expensive containment vessals and crew away, and saved its bottom line.
Our ocean waters are not just salt water, but consists of several different elements, some of which are nutrients to the sustenance of ecology of life
there. Gold, methane, oil, etc are some of those elements. There are quantities but which are not in the league of the damaging oil spill.
The seafloor is not about to collapse, nor will it collapse thousands of feet into the oil cavities under different strata of rocks, unless one causes
several nuke explosions over the same area, or an earthquake that will open up the fissure directly on the oil cavity. But the gulf region is not
laying on a tectonic plate, so earthquakes of that happening is minimal.
Analyse and rationalyze your fears, and it will only lead you back to the BP being responsible for the horrifying oil spill. Right now, its budget
overruns with the cost of containing the spill is close to zero, and may be using profits from other sources to help.
It's shareholders are dismayed, and other partners are shivering with fear at their loss in potential revenues. BP has enough funds to contain the
oil spill over time and let Gaia heal its ecological balance, pay out every single individual for its mistake, but it would mean having to sell off
some of its assets, and that is what no member of its executive and non-executive board will want.
It had attempted to blame its contractors, use nationalism, hide information, propagandise irrational fear mongering of sea floor collapsing and
probably would even sell their own mothers if it could save their own necks and bottomline.
To nuke the seabed would be playing into BP's hand. Think twice and thrice before you would even allow such a thought.
