Now that we’re past the seconds month of the Gulf Oil Leak, many people are suggesting various solutions that might seem better than what BP is doing; this vintage clip being one of them.
Might, of course, being the keyword. This video proposes a great solution for a gas leak crisis on land, but it isn’t very suitable for a leak underwater. I’m no expert, but I’m sure the government has thought of this “solution” and determined that it would be unsafe.
Sure, a nuclear explosion might solve the oil leak, but it would do more harm than good. Marine life would be contaminated and the waters would be even more toxic than before. Lord knows we don’t need our own Hiroshima.
I say we first cap the spill then clean the contamination up with oyster mushrooms.
