G'day All,

I was wondering in the wee wee hours of this am ... with the fact we now know that more oil is coming away from the aptly named oil tanker just off the coast of Spain.

What a "Prestige" event in the year of the world environment eh?

Has or is any attempt being made to corale the oil into a tube? thereby making the many many tonnes of oil still down there rise to the surface in a captured state? would not be that hard to quickly make up a device to fit this need? should be one already made? like an escape tube as used in space or by a submarine? flexible but containing?

Kind Regards, John A. Gamblin
