It seems pretty unlikely to me that the oil is having any significant impact on water temperatures. Its simply summer, and the water temperatures
are rising as they always do. But the temperatures are higher than normal, someone will say. My response: so what. 'Normal' is just an
average, and it logically follows that they've been higher than average many times before in the past, for completely natural reasons.
Now I'm not saying that its definitely not responsible, but that its fallacy to automatically assume that the oil is the cause, especially when we
know that oceanic surface temperatures can and do deviate from averages for natural reasons.
