Sorry, But as impressive as I am with the new issue in general, I been thinking on that oil spill a lot lately. What we are after here is not to fix the problem, just to buy time. Sink a ship down to the desired level with lots of salvage balloons attached, fill, raise the now lighter than water craft, pump, repeat as necessary. I think 3 ships, actually. If we drop one, we are no worse off than what we are trying now. It can be prepared and implemented right with whatever they are failing with right this minute. This could be working TOMORROW.
Great magazine cover, the airship part may seem a little crazy but anything can have a chance at reality.
Northrop Grumman and Hybrid Air Vehicles from Cardington England just won a 517 million contract from the US Army for a big hybrid airship, so the game will change for the lighter than air fans like myself.
If you want to see more on modern airships, past, present and future see: www.airshipblimp.com or if you just want a helium sniffing laugh try www.airship.me the worlds only lighter than air comedy site, with lots of funny pictures and U tube links fit for all the family.

I just wanted to comment to Susannah F. Locke about an article "Ketchup not Cancer". I found the article very informative on a subject that is sure to dominate the headlines in coming years. The fact that the fast food industry routinely cooks at high temperatures that foster Acrylamides is astounding. Not enough emphasis is put on this issue yet and the article seems to just brush at the surface. You should also be aware that a simple inexpensive fix exists in the marketplace today that is available, and inexpensive for both commercial and home use. It does not rely on retooling an entire segment of the fast food industry. This product also reduces a restaurants carbon footprint, reduces calories in fried foods, saves energy, oil and speeds up cooking time. You can find out about this product by typing Frylow into Google. Thanks for producing an incredible magazine that I anxiously wait for in the mailbox every month.
