This could likely be the worse single event man made disaster in history..
----------

“Officials said late Wednesday the estimated amount of oil spewing into the Gulf of Mexico from three underwater leaks after last week's oil rig explosion has increased to as much as 5,000 barrels, or 210,000 gallons, a day -- five times more than what was initially believed.”

This has nothing on Chernobyl, Bhopal India, or London's toxic fog. Not even close.

Don't get me wrong it's bad, very bad, but not close to the worst man made disaster.

True.....I haven't heard any estimates on how long it may take to stop the flow. At a rate of 210,000 barrels per day, it will take 51 days of uninterrupted flow to equal the amount spilled by the Exon Valdez.

BTW, Chernobyl isn't over either. 25 years later the place is a ghost town. It could be hundreds of years before humans can inhabit the area again. And between 240,000-720,000 years before the spent Plutonium-239 is completely gone.

Oil and water does not mix. But it can emulsify, and the further under water the leaks are, it is more likely to happen, and spread through under water ocean currents..

Besides the burning and top oil, there are many other factors to consider that are not in your numbers..

Ralph.

Keep in mind that the numbers for the oil leak is based on satellite photos from the oil above the water. There is no way of telling how much oil has emulsified and is moving on by way of deep under water currents.

Whats wrong with Ralph and I discussing this? Are you jealous because you have nothing to offer.. The only reason I can debate this is because I am an offset printer where the science is the same..

I have used oil based inks with water based fountain solutions and know from experience that too much water over oil can cause emulsification. Air bubbles, sand, dust and other sea partials can give oils something to latch on to.. Just like paper dust contaminating a water system on a press..

Oh no, no jealousy. Arguing the biggest ecological disaster is a great pass time. It is refreshing to see that you both are more than the tards you generally portray. I hope that the both of you also open the wallets and give to whatever ecological watchdog group you choose.

You need to hope for other things because when more oil is coming out then what they are estimating from satellite photos of top sea oil, and stormy weather season coming up churning the oil beneath the surface emulsifying, and under water currents shifting in all different directions, the entire coast of Florida and Georgia and beyond could be affected as well..
