From USA Today:
If there was ever a silver lining to something so horrible, this is it. But at what costs?
A third leak has been discovered, and a fire-fighting expert said the disaster may become the biggest oil spill ever.
Some 5,000 barrels (210,000 gallons) a day were now thought to be gushing into the sea 50 miles off Louisiana’s coast, said the US Coastguard’s Rear Admiral Mary Landry.
Already people are saying this is going to trump Exxon-Valdez and could be the worst disaster in U.S. history. We really don’t need to increase the chances for this to happen by increasing offshore drilling and hopefully it is providing a serious wake up call to the White House.
