It will also work to clean birds and other wildlife that have been contaminated with the oil. It is the most amazing oil absorbent I have ever seen. 432-296-0711.

Can’t they fill that metal pipe with magnets, or somehow use them to block the leak?

I was blown away last year building a web site for a company. They said they converted old tires to a material that removes oil from water. I though – yea right! Then I watched the video they sent me to edit… simply amazing. A material that is thrown away all over the US, capable of removing oil from water and wildlife.

If a pipeline/bag to pipeline can be attached, does anything make sense? If should have been done a week ago – or more.

For the clean up, allowing the oil to flow with the tide into a barrier collection awning that prevents its reaching shore and allows it to collect upon a barrier covered shoreline makes more sense than diffusing it and allowing it to float downward to reach shellfish, etc., and filling the harbor with toxicities.

Because the oil floats, allowing it flow naturally to a collection device would be simpler than trying to divert the natural inclination of the oil to go wherever it is going.

Talk about it is not solving the problem; and that talk has been going on for nearly two weeks now. This problem doesn’t bode well for offshore oil well drilling, and in fact, it should cause the public to question the wisdom of safe space exploration as well. If mankind cannot control its environment, should it be messing with it at all?

Any ideas on what that may be?
