Just ran across this site. Amazing photos that really put the extent of this into prespective.
My heart goes out to those who are probably going to suffer from this. I know there is a crowd here who will probably claim this is no big deal and say it's just an insignificant blip. Who cares right? It's only going to kill some birds and a bunch of marine life.
I think this really drives home the risk of allowing drilling in fragile areas. Sure there's been a pretty good record in the past years, but it only takes one event like this to really screw things up. Parts of Alaska are still feeling the effects of that. Let's see if BP can step up and do the right thing and not pull another Exxon.
If nothing else it gives us some real food for thougt as to the cost of being addicted to oil.
