Spill Baby Spill

The Deep Horizon oil spill from the wrecked drilling platform is spewing 42,000 gallons a day into the Gulf of Mexico. A remote sub us trying to shut off the well but if that stop the leak quickly, they might need to drill another well to redirect the oil, a laborious process that could take weeks. The oil slick is already 48 miles wide and 39 miles long. Major oyster beds are threatened as well as a huge swathe of coastline.
