But about the toxic rain, I honestly don't have a source beyond that link. I figured it would be like acid rain, or just normal rain carrying
pollutants like those in LA.
I think the Russians may be on to something. There is no way only 5000 barrels are spewing into the Gulf, all one has to do is watch the videos to
understand that is simply ridiculous. If we do the simple math, at 1 barrel equaling 100 gallons, lets start at the bottom and move up.
5000 (X) 42 (=) 210,000
gallons per day. (1,900,000 liters)
100,000 (X) 42 (=) 4,200,000
gallons per day. (39,900,000 liters)
Its obvious the Russians don't believe, or at least aren't saying, 4.2 million gallons a day. There numbers of 2.9 million gallons equals around
69,000 barrels a day... That might in fact be the truth. Simply do the math and look at the videos...
[edit to add] If they are correct, then that means in 46 days over 121,800,000 gallons of oil are just miles off the coast of America. (or
