The Gulf Coast Is Screwed

200,000 plus gallons of oil a day are spilling out into the Gulf of Mexico. It's only a matter of time until this oil spill surpasses the Valdez and takes its place of infamy in our collective conscience (coincidence that spellchecker knows how to spell Valdez? I think not).

The NYT continues to impress with its interactive info-graphics and you should be sure to check out the one it has set up for this spill.

The EPA has a good site up about their response with links to other government information as well.

I guess the only question now is what we'll end up calling this one. I think that Deepwater Horizon is probably to lengthy and that it'll end up being the Gulf spill, or maybe the Louisiana spill, the BP spill is also in the running.
