BP's Disaster in Our Gulf

Click and drag the slider for leak rates above USGS's/PBS's
lowball estimate. On June 2--when I first posted the Leak
Meter--USGS's estimate was only 540,000 gallons/day. USGS
(United States Geological Survey) is an agency of the United
States Government.

Update, June 18: The USGS estimate has been replaced
by a DoE estimate nearly twice as high. June 22: Now nearly
three times as high. Did I forget to mention that the USGS is
a sister agency to the Minerals Management Service? Both
are part of the Department of the Interior.
