BP spill eclipses Exxon Valdez, says government


www.reuters.com

(Reuters) - The amount of oil spilled by BP Plc's blown-out Gulf of Mexico well has eclipsed the 1989 Exxon Valdez disaster, and could be flowing at a rate nearly four times BP's recent estimates, according to findings of a U.S. government expert panel released on Thursday.

So it seems that things are as bad as we all have suspected,bp have alot to answer for~

Assuming the well has flowed 12,000 barrels (504,000 gallons/1.9 million liters) a day since April 20 -- the day the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded -- the total amount of oil released by the well is 444,000 barrels (18.65 million gallons/70.59 million liters), nearly twice the amount from Exxon Valdez.~qoute from source

There's no denying it's bad. Very bad. I'm of the opinion that stricter penalties need to be imposed for failing to meet government safety standards. Perhaps we need to have government inspectors in residency on these offshore rigs.
