National Geographic warns that if efforts to stem the oil leaks on the floor of the Gulf of Mexico fail the leaks could continue for decades resulting in catastrophic damage to the Gulf itself and to the land that borders it.

I wonder how much of it would be payed for by British Petroleum?

derF: I can always count on you for uplifting news. The story doesn't surprise me, though. I wonder how much oil is in that deposit. If no one can stop it, I suppose it will go one until it is essentially empty.

So long, Gulf of Mexico, and all the jobs that depend on it.

Not to mention the effects on wildlife.

This is such a sad tragedy.

Finally, something done, finally, some good news.

It's something, even if it is only temporary and even if there are still any number of things that could occur or go wrong.

Maybe this one will hold.
