Us hillbillies ain't as dumb as folks like to peg us for.

Seriously, hay is a cheap, environmentally friendly alternative that would actually remove the oil from the gulf, as opposed to scattering/sinking it with synthetic dispersant. Seems like a no-brainer to me.

Well, once they study the properties of the hay/oil mixture, have about 50 PHD dissertations written on it, studied every possible side effect of the extra hay in the water, looked at all the lawsuits brought about by the other types of hay that were not used and fought off the lawsuits from so called oil clean up companies maybe then something like this could be utilized. Of course by that time people will say: "What oil spill?"

Besides the fact that there is a nation wide hay and straw shortage and the amount of hay required for this task is more then the amount of hay/straw currently in the US. Doing so would cause the near extinction of all domestic animals in the US that requires hay/straw to survive. This sounds like a great idea to me, how about you?

Ya hay floats when it's dry. Cover it in a tar ball and see if it stays any where near the surface...

oil floats on top of water

according to the video, hay floats on top of water

what makes you think when you have hay and oil combined it won't float

In this case, not all the oil is floating. Crude has different densities, sometimes it's lighter than water, sometimes it's more dense. That's why we're seeing large underwater plumes. We already have the ability to clean up the stuff that's on the surface and/or contain it. It's the stuff that's in under water currents that's sneaking by and making it to the coasts etc.

just because they both float, doesn't mean the combination of the two will float. That's like saying anyone that weighs as much as a duck is a witch because witches burn and wood burns, and ducks and wood float..... etc etc.

I didn't watch the video because online players are disabled here at work, but there are a few holes in that plan.
