Ask a Simple Question
There’s probably some reason why no one’s brought it up, but here goes. Why not just use high explosives on the giant oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico?
Send some explosives right down the shaft and detonate them. The leak will seal itself. At least, that’s what was suggested to me by an engineer, who was working, I admit, slightly out of his field. I’d welcome comments from those who know undersea oil wells a bit better. Why isn’t this the obvious answer?
