one need only to rethink the natural oil system of planet Earth.
If a major artery were severed ... the deepwater horizon well gusher ...and stopping the blood flow is impossible,
then one has to collect the blood.
We collect the blood/oil by sealing off the present GOM so that the oil
does not get out into the Atlantic currents.
Sealing off means fashioning, erecting a monumental wall utilizing the Florida Keys chain, then on to Cuba and from there a containment wall to the Yucatan -- which seals off the GOM from the Florida straits & then into the Atlantic & seals off the GOM from the Carribbean.
the GOM will become a pool of oil mixed with water eventually, and all during this period of decades, there will be mega processing plants built on the shores of this hydrocarbon sea to seperate the oil/water mix.
also plants that process the deepwater gusher oil into a product which transports efficiently....
iow, the USA - GOM -Central America becomes the new oil pool of the planet...the open-air, sea of oil will have its drawbacks, but the laytex body coverings we will need to wear when going outside will be given freely by the gov't that has taken over energy supply from the soon to be defunct private multi-national oil corps.

Wow, just watched the video you posted from msnbc. This is really getting bad......
Is anyone else thinking about what Credo Mutwa said at the beginning of the year?
I really hope he was just trippin balls

Can you imagine if they blow a volcano 30,000 feet below the ocean floor? No I can't either. Forget the danger of radiation, that will not be our biggest concern. The event will be monumental enough to throw the earth off it's axis.
First, the BP platform was drilling for what they call deep oil. They go out where the ocean is about 5,000 feet deep and drill another 30,000 feet into the crust of the earth. This it right on the edge of what human technology can do. Well, this time they hit a pocket of oil at such high pressure that it burst all of their safety valves all the way up to the drilling rig and then caused the rig to explode and sink. Take a moment to grasp the import of that. The pressure behind this oil is so high that it destroyed the maximum effort of human science to contain it.
When the rig sank it flipped over and landed on top of the drill hole some 5,000 feet under the ocean.
Now they've got a hole in the ocean floor, 5,000 feet down with a wrecked oil drilling rig sitting on top of it spewing 200,000 [gallons] of oil a day into the ocean.
First they have to get the oil rig off the hole to get at it in order to try to cap it. Do you know the level of effort it will take to move that wrecked oil rig, sitting under 5,000 feet of water? That operation alone would take years and hundreds of millions to accomplish. Then, how do you cap that hole in the muddy ocean floor? There just is no way. No way.
If we can't cap that hole that oil is going to destroy the oceans of the world. It only takes one quart of motor oil to make 250,000 gallons of ocean water toxic to wildlife. Are you starting to get the magnitude of this?
We're so used to our politicians creating false crises to forward their criminal agendas that we aren't recognizing that we're staring straight into possibly the greatest disaster mankind will ever see. Imagine what happens if that oil keeps flowing until it destroys all life in the oceans of this planet. Who knows how big of a reservoir of oil is down there.
Not to mention that the oceans are critical to maintaining the proper oxygen level in the atmosphere for human life.
We're humped. Unless God steps in and fixes this. No human can. You can be sure of that.

Hey, all...just wanted to throw my 10 cents in here. Just for the record, I AM a geologist. That being said, I'm very, very certain that drilling into a batholith or pluton would almost certainly result in...nothing! The reason why nothing would happen is that all a batholith/pluton really is is a really big rock. At one time it was magma, but it cooled and turned into an igneous rock. If it was still molten it wouldn't be called a batholith or pluton, it would be called magma. So, I'm not quite sure what all the fuss over drilling into one is about other than a misunderstanding.
Tsunami shifts Earth
Shanghai Star. 2005-02-17
THE massive earth-quake that triggered the Asian tsunami wobbled the earth on its axis, forced cartographers back to the drawing board and changed time by a fraction, but there's no need to adjust your clocks.
