With the oil in the Gulf of Mexico, Corexit, and the sea floor still fractured and leaking....

Why doesn't the US Corps of Engineers start dredging the Mississippi?

Stir it up and make it as silty as possible, so all the water carries the silt to the floor of the Gulf of Mexico and seals up what man has done?

It would create jobs AND bury the corexit/oil at the bottom of the Gulf...PLUS the mighty Mississippi would get dredged clean to prevent flooding during heavy rain. Bigger ships could travel the Mississippi...


Unless.....In 2006 Cuba allowed China to go in and start drilling for oil in the Gulf of Mexico. Do you think China would drop a torpedo down their wellhead with a timer....pump it with concrete to seal it up.....

Then CAUSED the Gulf Disaster?

money.cnn.com...


Can you imagine if it was China who detonated a bomb underneath the Gulf of Mexico??

Very very simple to do....and would explain why the safety measures at the Deep Horizon failed....and why the sea floor is fracturing and bulging up.

China bombed it?....but back onto my idea...

Could dredging the Mississippi to generate more silt in the water going into the Gulf help fix the problem?? If so, why aren't we DOING IT?

I am not sure that would work. The gulf is huge and the river is big, but its still just one river. I don't think there would be enough silt in it to do anything.

^It would cost money. I've been watching them discussing on TV how they're going to clean up after the last hurricane, they're saying they can't afford it, even though it's a bit of an emergency situation in some areas. For Vermont, they said weeks and weeks to even get to it.

It's weird that a hurricane hasn't hit the gulf yet, and probably a good thing, since there's still oil spewing/seeping.

I think they just want to pretend it didn't happen in the first place, since they've let BP get away with not cleaning up after themselves......

In other words, do vastly more damage to the environment than the oil spill itself did.

This idea is about as clever as your other one about bombarding Venus with nuclear bombs to make it habitable.
