RE: Just how much oil is spilling into the Gulf?
The oceans are VAST. The volume of water unimaginable. Natural processes will break down this very thin oil much faster than we might think ... even if it takes a year to stop the flow I doubt serious long-term damage will take place. Even now, after many weeks, hardly a tiny fraction of it reaches the shore 50 miles away. Possibly Obama is using this to have a finger to point ... in order to draw attention away from other matters. As the world's biggest oil consumer [USA] the pronouncements come across as a little self righteous. The oil companies are on the bleeding-edge of recovery-technologies ... straining to feed the oil hungry economies we all live in. We should not be so shocked that this has happened ... rather that it does not happen more frequently.
