A possible way to stop the Gulf Oil Spill
I'm not an engineer, just a mechanic but consider this and if anyone has contacts and/or thinks it could be possible, please pass it on.
It's simple, we need a giant cone. Small at the bottom and progressively wider as it goes up and secured from the top by cables to the ocean floor. A cone won't blow from pressure and won't get blocked by Methane Crystal. It could have a pouring lip or lips at the top and the oil will just flow over into waiting tankers.
We can build a Saturn 5 rocket, giant bridges and skyscrapers, it's possible we can do this. It might not even have to be super strong but that would be for the engineers.
