Is there a sticky post or a general place to go for the government if you have an idea to control or fix the leak?
I was sitting eating lunch today watching the leak on the news and an idea just popped in my head. It may be impossible to achieve, and it would only
serve as a control to collect the oil until they could figure out how to cap the well.
Basically its creating another resevoir to catch the plume... and then siphon the oil water out from the top. If you could make a sack, I pictured
roughly the shape of a hot air baloon. If you could use material that catches oil and lets water through, and make it at least half a mile tall. your
essentially bringing that well head halfway to the surface. Siphon tubes would be pre attached. and you would deploy the fabric maybe with cables
with wieghts on the bottom, in a way that you could close off the "mouth" to line up with the leak.
I only imagined currents may pull the large underwater sail?
any thoughts, can I make millions off of this somhow?
