I know, you all have probably seen this video a million times but I'm sure you also noticed that natural gas started leaking around the well. The nuke fixed it....
There is plenty of nice hard solid rock in the sea floor for this to work.

If there really is 1 Billion barrels held under ground and building pressure as we speak, then I would say goodbye to all of the gulf. I am sure that would trigger massive tsunamis. Is this the reason they might be preparing for a mass evacuation?

The oil the Deepwater Horizon rig was tapping is 2 - 2.5 miles below the Ocean floor, it's extremely unlikely a section of the floor that thick will just give way and collapse leading to massive tsunamis... The worst that will happen is once/if the well is capped the amount of oil leaking from the floor will increase and there will be no way to stop it. For all we know the Ocean floor could have been leaking for years, it looks like such a small amount that being so deep it could've gone unnoticed for a very long time.

A couple of micro nukes might be worth a try. But they have to wait until the two relief wells are dug to come close then use them as nuke chutes. If they try to jam a nuke down the main line through the BOP it might just get sandblasted to nothing before they could get it deep enough.
You may be on to something there. maybe the "relief" wells are chutes to drop a nuke down through. But then again if what they drill is only an few inches around, then maybe not. But calling it a relief well would be a good way to hide the truth.

Is there any sites where you can watch ROV cams in better quality?
