Hi Pax, did not read all 18 pages, but your OP was quite interesting.
I live in the New Orleans area & there isn't exactly a media blackout. We know where the oil is in the marshes & shores, work is being done to
create the sand berms, animal rescue groups, while frustrated by BPs stupid actions are doing everything they can to save the wildlife.
I do not understand what your fear of "plutons" is all about, plutonic rock appears in all the Caribbean islands. The geological record show that
the GOM developed due to a "folding" mechanism in the geological process, so particles of plutonic rock should easily be found in the sea bed.
There is no caldera of an active - or dormant volcano in the gulf, and I doubt the Yucatan peninsula is volcanic.
So as far as there being a way to set off a volcano via the Deepwater Horizon spill, I simply don't see that being a feasible scenario.
If the relief wells fail, you do understand that the only other option then is to seal the well, which will be done with some kind of high explosive,
sub seafloor (very deep in fact)
Russia successfully killed 4 land wells via small tactical nukes (plus one failure, the well didn't seal on one of 5 times this process was used) and
there was no radiological contamination to the areas where this was done, of course the nuke was fired off far below ground.
Should that happen with Deepwater horizon, I do not foresee a tsunami, although a tidal surge comparable to a hurricane's storm surge wouldn't
Forgive me for saying, but I think you are getting very worked up for no good reason, as far as volcanic activity & repercussions of sealing the well
- should it come to that.
More disturbing to me is that the flow is still going way too strong, the oil has made it into the loop current & will be traveling up the east coast
by this time next month & the unknown effect of the massive amounts of Corexit in the marine environment.
Those are the things that should be keeping you up at night
