Oil Spill: Worst Environment Disaster EVER?!
As far as oil spills go, this may be the worst-case scenario. This spill is producing a leakage of about 5,000 barrels of oil per day. This is creating a proverbial dark cloud of the Gulf of Mexico. How can we even begin to clean this disaster up? What type of impact will this have on the oil market? If the price of oil spikes up, the economy is going to hit a wall. This is not the time for us to have 4 dollar a gallon gas.
And the environment threat is almost unimaginable. The oil slick is at least 130 by 70 miles.
