Some truth from Sky Truth dot org – their Saturday May 1 posting:
Dr. Ian MacDonald at FSU just produced a new spill-size estimate based on the US Coast Guard aerial overflight map of the oil slick on April 28, 2010.
The bottom line: that map implies that on April 28, there was a total of 8.9 million gallons floating on the surface of the Gulf.
That implies a minimum average flow rate of slightly more than 1 million gallons of oil (26,000 barrels) per day from the leaking well on the seafloor. Since we’re now in Day 11 of the spill, which began with a blowout and explosion on April 20, we estimate that by the end of the today 12.2 million gallons of oil, at a minimum, have been spilled into the Gulf of Mexico.
The oft-quoted official estimate for the Exxon Valdez spill is 11 million gallons, although some think that is the lower limit of the likely range. It appears that we’ve just set a very sad new record. …snip…
There is a bit of back and forth in the comments … with some commentary that Sky Truth is frustrated as the CG does not reveal how they reach their numbers and projections.
My wild guess, what comes from the government, publicly released, is ASStral projection. Pulled from the collective ass of the government.
Wouldn’t want to touch any of that with a 20 ft pole.
Madman posted the link to Tiny Revolution in the last thread, but it is so good, special and loving – and most certainly presidential… will carry it forward..
Master of Ceremonies! and of the “sharpest quips”…
OBAMA: Jonas brothers are here, they’re out there somewhere. Sasha and Malia are huge fans, but boys, don’t get any ideas. Two words for you: predator drones. You will never see it coming. You think I’m joking?
He’ll be appearing most nights, and days, for the next few years. Catch the act, be there or be square!
Remember: he loves us back!
