1. What makes it colossal is that it is an ongoing threat, and it will likely affect the rest of the world, possibly even worse than the US. The
Gulf Stream and the North Atlantic Current will be sharing this oil with all of you. If it is not stopped soon, the largest food source on earth will
become more and more toxic. For the US residents, we can still buy other foods, but what about the 3rd World where they have to live off a daily
ration of fish?
2. Yes, you Europeans are nutz and you like to riot whether your team wins or loses! My first visit to Ireland I was greeted by a naked soccer fan
running down the middle of a street because he lost a bet in a bar! So yes, for tonight, the Soccer Game trumps the Oil Leak, but in a few months,
we'll still be worrying about the oil, and soccer will be over.
