Seeing oil leaking in to the Gulf of Mexico is sickening

As headlines announce that oil is arriving to the shore of Louisiana in headlines of the paper today, the leaking BP drill site continues to gush oil at unknown rates. On the low side, NOAA has estimated 210,000 gallons per day, but after looking at the Enterprise ROV camera video I’m guessing it closer to the higher estimates projected by BP’s own experts … 2,520,000 gallons per day. In any case, it’s a sickening disaster.
