Simple Spill Solution

Surfing the net and feeling a bit bored on a rainy day, I came across this video that brought a smile to my face.

Two men from the south of the United States have thought of a way to clean up the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.  They propose using hay to soak up the oil. In their video demonstration, they show that once the hay has had time to come into contact with the oil and has been removed, the water left behind is perfectly clean and oil-free. Besides being simple, their solution also appears relatively environmentally friendly.

Some of the video’s viewers doubted whether this solution would be effective because of the immense size of the spill, but others pointed out that any effort to improve the current situation in the Gulf of Mexico would be beneficial and were excited by what they saw.  I know I was very impressed by the men’s demonstration and also extremely inspired by their work.  I find it amazing what ordinary people can come up with the solutions to disastrous problems using everyday items that surround them.  Though there is still the problem of the leak to deal with, the men’s work seems to be a step in the right direction.
