which means 32,600,000,000,000 gallons would kill all the oceans.
With the new pressure coming out , any real guesses as to how many gallons are coming out a day? give us a time frame to look at.

yup, this is what I am talking about.. Not to scare anyone to death on the gulfcoast but IF, or when a methane bubble bursts, your talking One hundred and Fifty thousand PSIG, rising up to the surface which will cause a Tital wave from HELL itself.. It will also change EVERYTHING.
More trouble: A tropical wave has formed in the Caribbean and could conceivably blow through the gulf.
"We're going to have to evacuate the gulf states," said Matt Simmons, founder of Simmons and Co., an oil investment firm and, since the April 20 blowout, the unflagging source of end-of-the-world predictions. "Can you imagine evacuating 20 million people? . . . This story is 80 times worse than I thought."
In effect, what BP considered the worst-case scenario in early May is in late June the bitter reality -- call it the new normal -- of the gulf blowout.

Re the yellow blob....if you look on the older pic, the crack where it is coming out on the newer pic is there and to the LHS the area is LESS eroded than in the newer pic so what might have happened is that the area got more eroded and melted down then cooled . This could account for the yellow blob- metal that has melted then cooled
