Another poster showed a diagram that suggested a 2 to 3 month time frame for that operation. Is that a reasonable assessment? BTW thanks for sharing your expertise. It is much appreciated.

Wow just wow! This appears to be much worse then we thought.... I am just stunned. This is like of biblical apocalyptic proportions. It's been a while but I believe there is even some biblical prophecy that talks about all sea life dying etc. I am not trying to make this a religious post or anything as I am not religious, just saying. This looks really bad, really bad!

no its not... I take public transport, and that consumes oil. I drive a car, sometimes, and that consumes oil. If I didn't, then I would die... I wouldn't be able to go to work, school, whatever, earn this fake money, and buy food, clothing, and shelter.
I think the people that have hid free energy from us for money are to blame.
You didn't use logic and you did nothing more than make yourself look stupid. There doesn't have to be enough oil to pollute every last drop of the ocean. The vast majority of sea life lives in the shallower waters of the ocean. Down deep it is dark and can be devoid of oxygen.

STOP PUTTING WORDS INTO MY MOUTH, MEMBERS OF ATS..
Just because I inject some logic into these irrational topics, does not mean I don't feel for the tremendous catastrophe taking place.
Assumptions are for the ignorant.
Deny Ignorance, ATS members.
Thank you !!
It only takes one quart of motor oil to make 250,000 gallons of ocean water toxic to wildlife.
Oh...thank you...that's what I get for skimming over a thread and mindlessly believing what the majority of ATS members say...nice input.
The worst oil spill ever, in the Persian Gulf in 1991, spilled about 430,000,000 gallons of oil.
At the rate of 100,000 barrels a day (100,000 according to CNN and BP an hour ago) this spill needs to stay full force like this for 11 years to equal the spill in the Persian Gulf.
Horrible? of course - worst ever? Not even close.
