Gulf spill estimates under review

A U.S. government task force called the Flow Rate Technical Group released new estimates which ostensibly double the amount of oil being spewed out of a blown-out well in the Gulf of Mexico. The task force’s new estimates suggest between 20,000 barrels and 40,000 barrels of oil may have spilled out daily before the well was partially contained.

Whether it is 400 barrels or 40,000 barrels or more, which it very likely will end up being, the potential damage is frightening. What is more frightening still, is the very obvious prioritization on the part of BP to cover up the evidence of the damage ( by withholding video of the oil well for weeks ) over getting any and all relevant information to sciences as quickly as possible.
