Sinking Oil

I assume everyone has been following the oil spill issues. This is the first of the deep water drilling big spills and we really don't have any base line for the impacts. Research on deep water oil is just beginning. See: for an article on the fate of oil from deep water seeps off of California.

Using dispersants (common for surface spills) may have worse effects than just keeping it together. See:
for one of the recent articles.

Reminds us that the costs of oil continue to rise.
