    Default Ideas on how to control the GOM oil leak!

    Here is an idea I came up with that might help to slow the effects of the GOM oil spill. The parachutes hold the methane gas as the oil floats up to the surface.





    What do you think, is it better than a heavy ass concrete box that cost millions? !!They seem to forget about the fragile ecosystem that is surrounding that broken vent!!

    What are your ideas?

    what are the parachutes made out of? Can all of this withstand weather? If a current is active, it would displace your parachutes, you'd loose a lot of the oil capacity.

    It also may be a strategic move by the oil company, spending big bucks on a reliable way to take care of the problem shows that they care about the environment, which may boost stocks? Donno about that...

    Well, we all know how reliable a simple concrete box can be!

    The parachutes would also need to stay perfectly closed, if some wave bashes into a chute, you'd end up loosing the whole lot. Concrete is less suceptable to the elements than flimsy parachutes.

    Concrete also creates, and insulates a lot of heat during the curing process.

    The parachutes can be built just like umbrellas, with folding steel frames.

    What would take longer then, making folding frame parachutes or making a shit tonne of concrete? I suppose, if they were clever, they'd make these things in advance and keep them on the ship ready to deploy.
