Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Maybe Matt Simmons is right and the only way to stop the well is to drill along-side below an impermeable rock layer, if there is one, and detonate a small nuke to turn the rock to glass. Don't know. Doesn't look hopeful. Glad I am several hundred miles from the Gulf.
