OK, I'm listening to CNN Live video feed of the hearings about the oil spill.

Salazar was asked about the news of a second spill, and Salazar said that
the second spill was remnant from Hurricane Ivan.

When asked how much was leaking on that spill, Salazar said he would get that info.

He wouldn't know?

I found it online.

CNBC was reporting that this new leak originated from a production platform that was destroyed by an underwater mudslide in 2004, when Hurricane Ivan slammed the area.

But what’s a little less clear is how long this leak, which is still producing around 14 gallons a day – roughly a car tank’s worth – has been belching oil into the open ocean.

What?? 14 gallons a day? I'm sorry, but this wouldn't be visible from satellite, would it?

Just sounds crazy to me. Not that there is a second leak, as satellite images have shown, but that this leak is only 14 gallons a day.

Earlier we published speculation from satellite analytics group SkyTruth that there may be a second leak in the Gulf. A freelance pilot and photographer confirmed these rumors and a possible coverup.
