59. This is not helpful and it has been a RW solution for weeks
Unless Clinton has been told this is a reasonable, though last resort, idea by competent scientists, he should not be saying this. It leads to a false sense that Obama has not acted boldly enough ordering something like this.

As a non-scientist, this idea seems rather likely to make things worse. You open greater holes in the bedrock that had covered the gas and oil. Putting layers of debris on it would seem to leave open the possibility of oil and gas continuing to wind its way up through any paths in the debris.

It is almost like suggesting the best way to clean up a paper covered desk is to throw everything up in the air and hope that it comes down in neater more organized piles than when you started.
