The Gulf Oil Spill Put Into Perspective

This utility created by Paul Rademacher "which overlays a scaled representation of the Deepwater Horizon spill onto a Google Earth view of any city you choose." gives you a really scary view of what we are doing to our world very quickly!! This disaster at one point was leaking 216,000 gallons of oil a day(the Exxon Valdez spill was 26,000 gallons)

Here is the spill in relation to my home state of Kentucky!
