For those who may not know/care the whole if the Gulf of Mexico may soon become an ever spreading global nightmare fir everyone. The oil rig that blew up and sank had been gushing out enough oil to turn already struggling economies into dead ones.
The paper here at home today outlined a plan that doesn't live up to the headline - "New plan to staunch geyser has never been tried at 5,000 feet." Doesn't It sound like Bob Ballard and his army of undersea robots will show up and like weld stuff? Instead they're going to lower down cement and metal boxes to try and capture and siphon up the oil.
I'd rather use the robots.
