Worst-Case Scenario(最悪のシナリオ)

記者: Dr.Scientist! The "top kill" has failed! What's the worst-case scenario for the gulf?

科学者: The worst-case scenario is what's happening now.

記者: Yes, but is there any way it could get worse?

科学者: Sure, but there are real disasters happening now, and you're substituting speculation and voyeurism for the investigative journalism we -

記者: Screw this! Let's ask Michael Bay.

マイケルベイ: The worst case? A hurricane tracks into the gulf, whipping the surface of the spill into a frothy mix of oil and air.

As the storm surges through the Bayous, sparking power lines ignite the fuel/air mix into a rolling, alligator-filled wall of flame.

Plowing northward, the fire hurricane destroys the old river control structure in Concordia, rerouting the Mississippi westward and sweeping Morgan city and the heart of cajun country out to sea.

James Carville emerges from the conflagration riding a burning alligator...

記者: Will this affect the midterm elections?

マイケルベイ: Massively.
