Good idea in theory but good luck
A) gathering enough straw and hay to cover the entire area and the subsea oil swirling around
and
B) scooping it all up again

patchouly: A lot, But there are many tons of it and it's very inexpensive. Also, It's a lot easier to clean up as traditional seaweed remediation equipment can pick it up off the beaches.

One hand full does a half cup of oil...how many hand fulls do you need for the, approximately 1,184,000,000 cups of oil?

Lol these guys actually think they are the first ones to think about using hay to clean up oil.

This technique was used back in 1969 in Santa Barbara oil spill.

Hair works? Then we should toss in millions of cats. Environmental too because after the cats have mopped-up all the oil, we could skin them and use them for shark chum.

Farmers in Kansas have used this for years and years to clean up little spills.

I heard somewhere that hair works well, surely all of the floor sweepings from hairdressers in America would do it?

If it works it works but it wont stop the oil from coming. Lets plug the hole then clean up the mess.
