Saving The Gulf

Or trying to.

Just sent in my suggestion to the EPA today.  It’s admittedly a bit Rube
Goldberg in appearance, but much simpler in operation.  I proposed a series of upside down cloth funnels to guide the oil plume to a single spot on the surface, where it could be collected in a pool and pumped aboard salvage ships.  The open-sided stack of funnels allows the methane hydrate ice crystals to rain out while the oil flows freely upward.  See my crappily-hand-drawn illustration, attached.
