Re: Russia says oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico can be stopped with nuclear explosion
IDEA: drill a new hole nearby to relieve the oil pressure, which may reduce the flow and then plug the leak by pumping down something that is liquid under atmospheric pressure but solid at one mile deep of water or something that would set. Any ideas on what that may be?

I really like this idea of drilling a new hole to relieve the pressure. It is very similar to what the Three Stooges did when their boat sprung a leak. They shot another hole in the bottom of the boat for the water to run out of.

Seriously, wouldn't another hole in the oil resevoir just be another leak?

It would just make a bigger hole and irradiate the entire hemisphere.

Of course, they do think long term so if everyone in this hemisphere dies of radiation poisoning, they could claim it all after about ten years.

From their point of view it is probably a fine idea.

No it would not. Do you know how many times nuclear devices have been detonated underground and underwater???? MANY MANY times. Are we dead yet? No.

Use some logic. If you drill a hole 1.5km down and deposit a small tactical nuke and detonate it, you will get an earthquake, and thats about it. The weight and pressure of the earth above and beside it will contain the blast and the hole drilled will collapse into itself along with any nearby holes.

I agree with this. Water is an effective radiation BARRIER. Radiated water breaks up into the elements that comprise it; oxygen and hydrogen. Under pressure (such as 5000 ft. under the ocean for example) the hydrogen and oxygen will revert back to water, though some gas will reach the surface and carry with it some radiation, but all very minimal and not in any way would there be fallout.

People can read about it here if they feel like educating themselves:

I'm no nuclear physicist, but I believe a nuclear bomb would do far, far less damage than what we currently have, where the oil has already traveled 200+ miles with no end in sight.

The next person to shoot this nuclear bomb idea down should do everyone a favor and post some actual evidence of their claims that the idea is stupid.
