Gulf oil spill is NOT cleaned up
If we were to accept the media's lack of coverage after the initial spill, or the BP commercials thereafter, we'd think that the Gulf was good as new. But it is far from it according to this recent federal damage assessment research, which estimates that 10 million gallons of oil coagulated on the ocean floor around the exploded rig. 172 million gallons were spewed into the ocean from the spill, with scientists still trying to figure out where it all went and the environmental consequences. All is not well in the Gulf but the oil business proceeds as usual.
