I was having lunch and I came up with a crazy idea....

Detonate a low yield nuclear warhead right on the leak point... It would fuse the opening shut. Sure there would be a bit of radiation... but nothing compared to the damage of 200k-2 million gallons/day of oil in the gulf.

Thoughts?

P.S. I sent an email to the White House with my idea.... so if you don't hear from me after today you know why.

Do not worry they have NASA helping them now, seems like when anyone has a problem now they just call in NASA for support?

Maybe their plan is to slowly turn the ocean into a deep fryer. Talk about fresh!

YouTube - Nuke the oil spill: Could nuclear bomb be answer for huge leaks as at US Gulf coast?

May 05, 2010 — A giant funnel to be installed at the scene of last month's devastating explosion off the U.S. coast, is BP's best hope of halting the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

The device, designed to channel oil from the seabed to the surface where it can be collected safely, will be set up on Thursday. However, with the energy company itself not sure it will even work, Russian experts suggest that a radical solution from Soviet history may be a way out.
