Want to see what BP would have done if it where your coastline?

This web site will overlay the spill anywhere. Stunning to say the least.

This single spill is bigger than the El Salvador.

Still think oil is a rare, dwindling, non-renewable energy source?

The country of Wales?

Covered in oil.

thanks for the perspective on size in relation to land mass.
the NASA photos also blew me away showing the progression of the oil in the gulf making its rounds. by the ned of the photo set, the entire gulf shows up brown.
thanks for sharing.

yeah I found that yesterday and posted it in some topic or another. Helps put the size of this thing into perspective. Glad you made a topic out of it. The page also keeps some interesting statistics.

The relevant question is, how thick is that oil? To cover one square mile of land with one inch of oil, it takes 17.4 million gallons. For a country the size of El-Salvador, this means you would need over 140 billion gallons of oil...and note that the website author quotes 39 million. Even at 390 million gallons of oil, which is probably closer to reality than 39, you could cover El Salvador to a depth of less than 3/1000ths of an inch.

Understand, I'm not trying to minimize the impact of this oil spill AT ALL. But what I am trying to do is provide some perspective.

Time and tide will bring the oil to my area.

We have a lot of activist in this area.

I do expect large numbers of good folks will be out in force to monitor the situation. I'll be there until I'm thrown in jail.

We have seen what persistent citizens who are not afraid to be heard can do.

The powers that are in control of the oil disaster will stir up a huge hornets nest when they have to deal with our citizens.

BP you better get your act together by the time the oil starts up the east coast.
