Dude, 1/3 of the Gulf of Mexico is covered in a film of Petroleum and a couple million gallons of a toxic chemical dispersant along with the 'most

Really... Here's a satellite photo from NASA showing the current extent of the oil that has actually reached the surface from a mile down. The oil
on the surface is enhanced as RED...
I've taken the NASA satellite photo and matched it to a satellite photo of the entire Gulf of Mexico, to give you an idea of the extent of the oil
slick relative to the entire area of the Gulf.
Hate to burst your oil slick bubble, but 1/3 of the Gulf is NOT covered in oil. That's more of the hysterical propaganda. The very first tar balls
were sighted in far east Texas waters today
. The very first oil reached Mississippi beaches just last week
. Spotters on the ground in
Florida claim they haven't seen any oil on the beaches nor in the water, in spite of "official statements" about oil threatening Florida
You've been suckered. It's not an "environmental disaster" as the mainstream media has sold it.
As for the "most vigorous methane release in the history of our species," I think that's a flat-out lie. There's evidence of truly massive thaws
of frozen Methane in the waters off Scandinavia — the European methane releases dwarf this minor leak in the Gulf of Mexico to insignificance.
Sorry, there are no extinction-level side effects associated with even massive
Methane releases. Show me where a natural Methane release has
... I want to know on what precedent you're basing this hysterical fear-mongering.
