The future is not carved in stone, so take this with salt.

1. a big hurricane is a comin', scheduled to hit the gulf

2. evacuations in effect to be on the safe side

3. at least one new relief well is dug

4. a small "Davey Crockett" type nuke is placed in it, and....

This might happen, could be very dangerous.


Recommendation----------Play it safe, collect the oil better, try the relief well even if it looks hopeless, don't use the nuke.

I agree... We live in the south and a nuke should be an absolute last resort. Not enough research about fall-out or damage from that depth. The potential for a disaster from the radiation alone, could be horrific.

I think a nuke would destablize the whole area, creating a massive tsunami and opening up the sea floor making matters worse. surely tptb have thought of this too?

Are you serious? Is that actually a consideration by any real person? I don't live in the States anymore (clearly for very good reasons) but are you guys actually saying that that suggestion is even on the table as a possibility? Please say it ain't so!

If we can't do any better than this for plugging the holes we drill into the Earth (our only place of abode currently, btw), perhaps we need to think again about what we do now and in the future. Maybe we should be quite a bit more respectful, starting now.

There have been "hints" on the news over the last few weeks. Nothing substantial, however it has been mentioned. There is a thread running now about troops and warships being sent to Costa Rica. Some posting comments think it has something to do with the Gulf situation. Who knows??? According to national news yesterday, the leak may be stopped in the next couple of days. We'll just have to wait and see, I suppose.

It seems I recall, some news station recently, saying Russia has done this before. I can't remember where exactly I heard that, but I don't think one person or committee should be allowed to do anything that extreme without public input. Just my 2 cents worth.

I do think if a nuclear bomb (and I highly doubt it) was considered, there would be a public uprising. I would also pray that it would not be done without informing people first.

I've heard them talking on the news lots about the nuke possibility. I think it has been done on land before, but never in an area like the gulf which is riddled with drilled wells, some temporarily abandoned and top sealed to go back to later.

www.huffingtonpost.com...

"Of 50,000 wells drilled over the past six decades in the Gulf, 23,500 have been permanently abandoned. Another 3,500 are classified by federal regulators as "temporarily abandoned," but some have been left that way since the 1950s, without the full safeguards of permanent abandonment."

www.msnbc.msn.com...

"There's ample reason for worry about all permanently and temporarily abandoned wells — history shows that at least on land, they often leak. Wells are sealed underwater much as they are on land. And wells on land and in water face similar risk of failure. Plus, records reviewed by the AP show that some offshore wells have failed.
Experts say such wells can repressurize, much like a dormant volcano can awaken. And years of exposure to sea water and underground pressure can cause cementing and piping to corrode and weaken."

Was there a seismic event in the Gulf after the spill began? I remember reading about it on this site. Tested oil from the spill has been reported to register as being slightly radioactive but that could be normal for deep oil.

This kinda makes one wonder what would be done without prior notification or consulting the public. -----------Just a wild thought.

I wonder if the increased quake activity in CA and AK is related to the gulf somehow.......

If Russia does it, that's a good reason *not* to do it. I live right next door to them.


Seriously, now you guys have to know that if/when they do this, one of two things will happen: A) if they do it and the "hole" is "plugged" for even a month or two (that you know of anyway...), nobody's gonna rise against anything because they are "heroes"; or B) it all goes A over T, you're/we're all fuxx0red anyway so all the rising up in the world won't make a molecule of difference. The problem is that there's no control *now* and they're going to do as they please anyway.

I can hear ole Mabus's life ticking away as we type. Bring on the rout.
