1 Million Gallons A Day!

Oil Containment Strategy Fails. Reuters reports that Florida State Univ. prof. estimates 1 Million Gallons a Day Poisoning Ocean:

"Oil has been gushing into the Gulf at a rate estimated at a minimum of 5,000 barrels (210,000 gallons/795,000 liters) a day since the well ruptured. Ian MacDonald, biological oceanographer at Florida State University, told Reuters this figure was too conservative, putting his guess as high as 25,000 barrels (1.05 million gallons/4 million liters) a day."
