    Default Feds may set Gulf oil slick ablaze

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Coast Guard officials are considering setting the Gulf of Mexico oil slick on fire as it moved Tuesday to within 20 miles of sensitive ecological areas in the Mississippi River Delta.

    Officials say it could become one of worst spills in U.S. history.

    I didn't know an oil spill like that could be ignited, but if so, that huge amount of burning oil would create a huge amount of smoke, and if the winds are pushing the oil towards land, the smoke too would blow in the same direction. So I guess the smoke is the lesser of the two evils? What about filling overtopping cofferdams with drilled seabed oil and pumping from that? Would it be safer?
