We had been talking about the massive oil spill and who all should be held accountable, when my son asked a question
that I had not given any consideration to.
He asked,"Since all that oil was underground to begin with and offshore, what would have happened if there was no oil rig out there but yet a massive earthquake hit out there miles under the sea and oceanfloor, right where that oil deposit was located, and the earth opened a crack all the way up to the ocean above, what would happen to that oil? Who would be responsible for the clean-up then?
Also depending on the size of the crack there could be potentially hundreds of thousands gallons more oil spewing out than what is comnig out of that smaller drilled hole.
How would you answer and what would make you think the way you do?
*Edited to add*: I understand that this is more like a composite question instead of just one single question but he is a stinker to me today. I guess just view it as similar to the composite sign of the end that the WT told us about. Not just one sign but many making a composite.
