Oil Spill Time Lapse

Yeah, yeah, I know I’ve been obsessing about the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, but there are so many facets to this whole disaster that simultaneously horrify and fascinate me.

That includes everything from the physics of the spill to the politics related to it. The whole thing is revealing so many truths about the natural world and human nature

Today, I offer a nature perspective. NASA/Goddard Institute has released a time lapse video of the spill, from satellite views. It’s mesmerizing and grim.

    The reason nobody knows how to stop this is because coming up with a workable plan in case of a leak before it happens would have cost money.
    Wouldn’t want to take a nip out of profits, now would we?
