Ocean floor collapse in Gulf of Mexico; nuclear option to seal it
The BP oil spill is about to take a turn for the worse. The ocean floor on top of the Deepwater Horizon well may be on the verge of collapsing completely, increasing the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico exponentially.
Several geologists and drilling engineers have concluded with certainty that there are several cracks visible already that may further impact the entire integrity of the ocean floor. If the floor were to lose its integrity and collapse, then 150,000 barrels of crude will find its way to the surface of the Gulf of Mexico on a daily basis.
The cracks or collapse of the floor cannot be contained nor remedied with any available technical equipment and may affect other nearby wells that still operate in the vicinity.
If ocean floor collapses and subsequent tsunami happens: Widespread destruction of US coasts, cities.
The Nuclear Option may be considered. But using a nuclear bomb to seal the oil leak should NOT be an option. Here’s why.
