Imagine if an oil leak like th BP one happened offshore in the Arctic a mile under water.. With ice covering the water, -50F...
There would be no stopping it. right? Can ROV's handle those temps, or is the water actually warmer the deeper you go? (Compared to the surface)
It would still be crazy. And if it happened, would they even report it to anyone or just quietly move away from the leaking pipe?
