This spill is a real wake-up call. The oil crisis is creeping up on people in ways that are starting to feel more and more apocalyptic. Mining the tar sands and drilling in rediculous underwater places are two examples of how human beings can get accustomed to and normalize the most bizarre circumstances.
Support your local alternative energy initiatives . . . even if your elected representatives won't.

All of us, and I mean ALL of us are dependent on oil. You drill for oil and accidents happen. You transport oil and accidents happen.
I would say that it does look like a structure.

I live by the Gulf in FL (Clearwater). This will be strange to follow over the summer. A sheen of oil prevents evaporation, which heats up the water. A hot Gulf means huge hurricanes, but will they be all wind and surge (terrible surge), but little rain due to lack of evaporation? Also, Gulf coastal property values are going to plummet and people are already canceling visits, leading to a regional crash in the economies.
This is a catastrophe of highest order and no one knows where it will end or how.

Hurricanes will help to clean it, but then it is hard to determine what effect, if any, this will have.

These photos are from a guy on the Boycott BP group on facebook. I was deeply shaken when I viewed the first one. I don't think we will ever know the true extent of the damage. The guy from facebook said his flight was from Key West to Phoenix.
