Bombing or "Nuking" the Oil Gusher?

During our segment Monday on the Gulf oil gusher crisis, there was a pretty eye-opening exchange about more radical potential measures that might stop the Gulf spill, including bombing the sea floor. You can read all about what was said, and listen to the sound clip when our panel discussed the "nuclear option." And you can listen back to the whole show.

Update: Andrew Revkin of the New York Times, a guest on today's show, reports that BP executives have just rejected any use of explosives. But Revkin says, "That doesn’t leave a lot of options should the  'top kill' procedure, and a possible 'junk shot' chaser, fail."
