This NASA Earth Observatory image taken by the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) on NASA’s Terra satellite shows a false-colour, high-resolution view of the very tip of the Mississippi River Delta.
Ribbons and patches of oil that have leaked from the Deepwater Horizon well offshore are silver against the light blue colour of the adjacent water. Vegetation is red. Oil smoothes the water, making it a better mirror, so the oil-covered waters are very bright in this image [Picture: AFP/GETTY / NASA]
They keep saying the oil “can’t go up the Mississippi”.
Looks to me like the oil is in charge.
