Your Daily Oil Update: Still Leaking

Straight out of a scene from Lost, engineers are now proposing that the federal government “send a nuclear device 18,000 feet under water, detonate it, and hope the sudden blast of heat and pure energy is enough to melt the rock around the [leaking] well and clog it,” saving the Gulf Coast from further devastation caused by the BP oil spill.

Obviously, no one is certain that this plan will work, and the White House has already classified it as “crazy.” But, maybe it’s just crazy enough? Apparently the Soviets were successful in a similar situation back in the 60s, and everyone knows we should be doing whatever the Soviets did, since technically they don’t even exist anymore.
