At first it seems far fetched, but it actually could work!

Gonna need a lot of hay, but looks to be a better solution than just the skimmers they have been using.

Scale this up a couple millions times or so ... Could work if hay doesn't sink once filled with salt water and oil

They put 2cl of oil into the water and need a quarter pound of hay to get it out. So far there is more than 100.000.000 litres of oil in the gulf of mexico. You'd need 62.500 tons of hay to get it out of there.

At high level nobody thinks of these simple solutions. They would never try this. Wouldn't be surprised if some group said your wasting hay.
While this is a good idea, if they don't stop the oil your going to need endless hay. They should just start pumping the top layer of the water out.

Now oyster mushrooms can eat the oil from the hay.

#1 oil floats on water i dont think the fishes give that much of a shit but the birds and seals and animals that have to swim threw it are the ones who care
And #9 2cl wow your eyes are good but i looked back and ya your right 65ktons of hay would be a even worse disaster to clean up

@gcleffff : the pacific?
The problem seems to be hay infested with oil is also problematic not really sure how you're gonna clean it up

Except these two simple men (excuse me) don't realize the volume of oil involved in an oil disaster.
I am sure one could find many more materials that soaks oil, still only useful if you got a bowl of water contaminated with oil

Could work, the numbers aren't that unbelievable. But you should know that oil doesn't keep floating, after a while it starts sinking to the bottom of the sea.

While 62,500 tons of hay might seem like a lot, Louisiana by itself produced 1.1 million tons of hay in 2009.
That's less than one percent of the national total (146 million tons in 2008).
So, supplying that much hay is not a problem. Collecting it would be more difficult, but I expect it's a whole lot easier to search for and collect oily hay on the surface than oil itself. As stated in the video, collecting it from beaches is a lot easier than collecting the oil itself.
The only concern I have about this method is that the floating hay may attract marine animals, which would otherwise have stayed away from the oil.

#(removed comment), you don't get patents for throwing hay in water

OMFG why do people take this seriously? Are you fucking kidding me? Yes, let's go get millions of tons of hay dump it in the ocean, stir it up (don't ask me how) and then pick it up. Brilliant. Who says Americans aren't ingenious?!

Hey at least someone is sitting around thinking of a groundbreaking solution for the planet
Who would have thought it would be a couple farmers in overalls (And not in lab coats)
What their point is it will be way easy to clean up the hay because since it floats... it's going to eventually end up on shore! = cleaning up would be easy... If they can filter out more than 90% of the oil this way because it attaches itself to the hay naturally then they have a really good idea...
This is the best idea I have seen since NANOBOTS when it comes to these kinds of problems.. but unfortunately we are a couple decades away from our species perfecting NANOBOTS I can't wait....
THUMBS UP guys.

#9 come to think of it... yeah you are right... The US has some trillion debts but who gives a f$%K about the sea... lets not waste our money on hay... pay it to BP.. they will eventually do some(no)thing about it...

#29 No one said millions of tons...
And, there's constant movement out in the Gulf.
(been seasick 6 of the last 8 times I've been out.)

Hay.. just so simple.. does anyone really think two hillbillys would be the first people ever to think of it?
been tried, exon valdes, erica..
expensive, inefficient and overall more damaging than controlled burns..
google guys.. help not looking like an idiot in front of the whole world..
