BP Makes Oil Crisis Worse!
What happens when the solution is worse than the problem? Since oil eruption in the Gulf of Mexico began over a month ago, I've heard ideas ranging from cool to crazy. The plan to blow the hole up with a nuclear bomb strikes me as being closer to the latter. Not only has BP's latest attempts to seal the leak have failed, but it looks like their actions may have increased the rate of oil flow by 20%.
Now some people have said that this crisis is not worse than the Mexico's Ixtoc 1 disaster three decades ago. Forgive me, but I don't share that point of view.
