This week the X Prize foundation announced their intention to come up with a contest for solutions to cleaning up the damage done by the oil leaking from the BP Deepwater Horizon rig in the Gulf of Mexico.
Roughly 35,000 solutions have been proposed to BP, our government and other organizations, including the X Prize Foundation about fixing the Gulf crisis. Finally, instead of complaining about the problems, the time has come to start seriously inventing and deploying solutions to fix the gulf oil leak and the mess we’re left with.
The X Prize Foundation became famous for its X Prize of $10 million awarded for the development of private spacecraft, and now for the health of our beautiful planet, the nonprofit foundation is intending a new oil spill clean-up challenge. The X Prize foundation is seriously considering a multimillion-dollar prize for the the cleanup of the oil spill.
With Gulf spill pollution solutions like the “Ocean Therapy” machine by Kevin Costner and the deep sea clean-up solutions presented by Genoil, we are aware that there are good ideas already invented on oil-spill cleanup that are on the move now.
Ideally contests to cap the spill are in order. Unfortunately X Prize representatives admitted that at this time they are unable to obtain enough data to launch a contest for a solution to capping the gulf oil well so instead they are focusing this contest on cleanup. My hope is that the true winner of such a challenge will address both issues, and with tens of thousands of entries, it is entirely possible.
