When an explosion rocked the Deepwater Horizon offshore oil rig, killing 11, on April 20th--it set off a rupture that has been spewing at least 200,000 gallons of oil into the Gulf Of Mexico every day since. Now that BP's initial containment box has failed, the company is assessing other options.
Here are ideas people have proposed to help clean up the oil spill and stop the leak. Some seem plausible and effective, while others could potentially cause more damage in the end. Are these solutions crazy or genius? You tell us! As BP said in an press conference, they are open to ideas to how to contain and clean up the spill. (We find this both comforting and alarming.)
