Could The Mighty Mississippi Fight The Gulf Oil Spill?

Shifting some of the Mississippi River's flow from its southernmost branch, the Atchafalaya River, to the main river body could create a strong current of fresh water that would act as a barrier against the oil. This invisible boom of sorts would keep the oil out of sensitive marshes for several weeks, according to the National Audubon Society.

Do you have any clever ideas to alleviate the environmental damage being done by the oil spill?
