There are good ideas and there are great ideas. This is a f***ing terrible one. Nuking the oil leak to cover that shit in rubble and seal it off. Plus birth Godzilla! (which, admittedly, I am for)
A plan proposed to detonate a nuke to seal off that troublesome oil well is gaining support with each of BP's failures. The Russians apparently used the tactic five times between 1966 and 1981. They went four for five.
Will it ever happen? According to an anonymous source at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico -- y'know, the guys and gals who created the Bomb in the first place -- no.

Millions of killer giant squid are not only devouring vast amounts of fish they have even st... / Continue →
