NASA Images of Gulf

This is scary, and makes the situation a little, um, clearer:



Take note that this image sequence reflects just the first month, we're already into the second month of this disaster, and these pictures show just what's near the surface of the water. I've also read some estimates that this particular field might have up to 50 billion barrels of crude oil, and no one knows when - or if - the situation can be remedied.

Totally terrifying, to say the least.

Kardashev's scale looks all the more convincing now.
