  2. How about polling the drilling pipe out from underneath the ocean floor?
    This is how the oil is coming out, isn’t it?
    If it will be pulled out, will the soil around it close on the leak or will there be another unhealthy interaction between the oil and the environment, this time maybe the lower level of the ocean floor?
