Just a Thought..

With decidedly practical applications if the science fits..

Just in — More stormy weather forces another halt to efforts to pump oil off a leaking cargo ship grounded off New Zealand’s coast.

The Rena..huh?

So my thought is what is likely to happen if – and if possible – say a ton of dry ice (solid CO2) or more was added to those viscous fuel tanks..?

I admit I’m guessing here, but the prospect of making that stuff so viscous or immobile or solid could sure go aways in reducing tank rupture and/or accidental environment risk… and if the backend sinks with the worst case scenario coming about then ‘solid greasy’ to a robotic or submarine bucket excavation would be more feasible than what we already know is a too tough and long call on the surface.

Whatever, best of luck, guys.! I know you could use it.
