The BP Oil Spill is the biggest oil spill in the history of the United States. Basically, there is oil all over the Gulf of Mexico and no one knows what to do with it. There was an accident on an oilrig and now all this oil is just pumping into the Gulf. Drilling small relief wells nearby and lighting the oil on fire hasn’t worked all that well. Cool robots, as well as, any other attempt at plugging the hole have failed. The only true solution right now is digging various amounts of small wells that will relieve pressure and allow mud to be poured down them. These wells will be attracted to the main one and hopefully top it off with enough mud to stop the flow. Mud pumping is our best shot, but unfortunately, this method will take two to three months before the flow of oil can be stopped.
