COVINGTON, La. - An untested procedure to plug the blown-out oil well in the Gulf of Mexico seemed to be working, officials said Thursday, but new estimates showed the spill has already surpassed the Exxon Valdez as the worst in U.S. history.
A team of scientists trying to determine how much oil has been flowing since the offshore rig Deepwater Horizon exploded April 20 and sank two days later found the rate was more than twice and possibly up to five times as high as previously thought.
U.S. Geological Survey Director Marcia McNutt said two different teams of scientists calculated the well has been spewing between 504,000 and more than a million gallons a day.

But, nowhere have I heard that anyone has said it is nothing to worry about.
Flaunting Environmental Science, conservation practices, including reducing energy use and excess waste has been done at this site by more than a few people. You eff with nature and MN kicks you in the shins. Our behaviors and attitudes do matter, whether tho$e to the right agree or not. Now we will all get to pay. Again, it's tho$e who mi$$ viewing the fore$t because they are so busy hunting for their certain "ideali$tic" tree$.
