    Should We Nuke The Leaking Underwater Oil Well?

    Should we drop a nuclear bomb on the leaky oil well? | Washington Examiner

    Translation result for http://www.kp.ru/daily/24482/640124/

    You will have to forgive the machine translation, but I wanted to get a Russian source.

    It seems that in the past, Russia has had similar problems with leaking underwater wells and they fixed it with a nuclear blast.

    Good idea or bad idea?

    Oh hell, just nuke the TX, LA, MS, AL, and FL coastlines and nobody will care about some oil coming ashore.

    I agree its probably not the most ecologically friendly remedy, but I don't think you could beat true awesomeness of the idea

    Its like the ultimate FU to the oil well.

    It would be fantastic.

    We could make 40 videos about it.... so excited if that's the route they take.

    I doubt the well (or the sea bottom or the ocean) would really give a damn.

    The USA will experience true awesomeness when the Yellowstone Caldera has one of its periodic eruptions.

    A nuke going off 61km from land and 1500m below the sea surface would not be all that big a deal, as far as awesomeness goes.
