A funnel cloud could suck up oil and chemicals into rain clouds
and drop it over the land mass of America.
BP, who has consistently put a rosy glow on events in the Gulf, now admits that the Top Kill maneuver has failed and it will be 10 weeks - late August- before their next best attempt to control the oil spill can be put into effect.
Of course, this most optimistic rosy scenario could be wrong. Every other thing that BP has had to say has proven itself to be wrong. Why should we believe them now?
Is it time for the nuclear option? The nuclear option is the detonation of a nuclear warhead to seal the leak. It's been done before. What's worse- a nuclear bomb explosion or 10 more weeks of gushing oil? Well the Commander in Chief says he's taken over and he's got the nukes, not BP.
