I am sorry if this has been asked, I haven't seen it but how far can the oil spill be carried?

Can it be carried to the beaches of other countries especially if its bigger than they are saying?
Just wondering if that is possible?

  • No one really knows how far it can or will go. Any amount of oil going as far a another Country would likely be tiny and nothing more than a sheen of oil. People on the East coast or in other countries will not have "tar balls" and mass ecological damage.

  • "Nothing more than a sheen of oil" that we all know would just enhance the bathing experience.

  • Whatever happened to all of the oil released during the Gulf War in 1991? Surely 1,500,000 tonnes of crude oil had to have had a negative affect on our planet?  Yet, all you hear about is the Exxon Valdez (which currently ranks as the 54th worst spill worldwide)--in terms of whether a spill is worse or not?
