How your favorite super hero can help with the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill?

In a lengthy discussion over lunch, a group of seasoned developers discussed what their favorite super heroes could do to help with the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill.

Gorge: Green Lantern can create a machine that cleans up oil.

Jess: Ironman will probably burn all the oil with some fancy lasers coupled with flashy explosions while taking a pose for the cameras.

Joven: Superman could use his breath to freeze the water then lift it up and throw it into space, plants and other sea life included.

If you have other ideas, feel free to comment and join in.

You can check out the mind map above which I quickly wrote to capture visually what I think are the major issues that are still unresolved in the system.

As a long time IT practitioner with some background with security and Public key infrastructure, I believe I have an above average understanding of the implications of these issues.

Please feel free to comment or suggest major issues which I may have missed. I'll update this post with explanations in a bit.
