    Massive new oil slick spotted in the Gulf of Mexico

    I figured this was breaking news, as they are surely talking about it around here, but since it wasn't proceeded by a big explosion, it's not really making much news.

    Right now they aren't sure where it's coming from. This is literally miles from where I'm typing this right now.

    Edit: A texas based company has claimed responsibility for the leak while capping a well. The well is now capped and the source of the leak has been closed.

    This is a pisser. Not because of environmental Damage but because it will give Obama another excuse to keep from drilling oil wells when we need it the most.

    This is great, Japan gave the environazis and excuse to end all nuke power, and this will give them and excuse to say we should shut down oil drilling. We'll be living in caves in no time. Start getting your canned good together.

    Sounds like a British thing.

    What about environmentalist types who are still wholly in support of vastly increasing our nuclear power generation?

    Since when was environmentalist a bad thing? You would think that since that is the one thing we ALL need to live, it would be a top priority.

    What about all those oilfield jobs? Or, do you take Bill Maher's stance on the issue and say, "**** your jobs"?

    I haven't seen too many nuke powered cars on the market, lately.

    Oil is a part of the environment and we need it to stay alive.

    On a side note, has anyone heard about the 80,000 barrel floating storage tank that Obama approved for Petrobraz? Now, there is a **** up waiting to happen.
