“NASA Satellite Tracking the Gulf Oil Spill“. This is one of those off-topic posts that Anthony Watts spits out now and then to “prove” that he’s not merely obsessed with denying Global Warming. It’s just a copy and paste job of a NASA press release (which Anthony doesn’t link to) with satellite imaging of the massive oil spill coming from the destroyed BP Deepwater Horizon wellhead in the Gulf of Mexico.
It looks like this spill may rival the Alaskan Exxon Valdez spill of 1989. Can I say “Drill, baby, drill”?
Anthony; do you really trust those nasty NASA satellites?
I read through the posting and was surprised at how many of the comments characterized the Gulf spill as “a minor leak, that would kill some wildlife, but would be quickly degraded and would actually stimulate the food chain.” Now the leak is much bigger than first thought, BP seems to be unable to stem it, and there is a good chance that oil will go through the Florida Keys and up the East Coast.
Not sure why Anthony’s faithful are so quick to minimize an environmental catastrophe.

What a beautiful leak. I love the oily mass that bulges outwards from a bent pipe. A brown Rorschach blot of the automobile culture.
My most fervent hope is that all efforts to stop and mitigate this masterwork are failures. The incontinent flow of hydrocarbons shall continue for the decay of all.
I would love to see a sea of greasy Devil’s blood flowing into the ocean forever more. The spew that flew right on through.
Then the World can move on into its next phase, the Dark Phase of death, decline and destruction. Soon, all the works of humans will decay and so too will themselves be brought to the altar of slaughter, to account for their crimes of existence.
