i say light the damn slick on fire and burn it away, i mean it was going to end up in the atmosphere via are cars engines anyway.
It's probably impractical but I suggest sucking all the oil and some waterfrom the leak to the surface and then separate it. Petroleum is a fantastically complex mixture anyway and has to be fractionally distilled, etc, to make gasoline and other somewhat purer forms [octane, nonane, heptane, and simpler as well as more complex hydrocarbons]. Oil and water don't mix [mostly], right? So separate the water then do what is always done with it.
And then don't drill that way again.
I saw a machine awhile ago that could separate spilt oil from seawater. They pumped in the oil and water mix and pumped out clean water.
This is the most simple solution. We could all contribute willingly.
Yes my hairdresser sends the cut off hair there.
The answer is right here in this youtube video...
All BP employees should all go for the bald look... donate their hair to clean up the oil.
Dispersing only makes clean up harder.
Corral the oil and soak it up with hair in panty hose and vac it up... seperate the oil from the water
BP needs to ask for help from all over the world ....Anyone who has knowledge in oil spills should be paid to get done what they obviously don't know how to do.
They sell the stuff at any auto parts store. I've got a bag of it in the garage.
just shave off our own hair for once and do this enormous shared dorm called Earth a good turn (i.e. spring cleaning)
