If this video doesn’t scare the crap out of you, I don’t know what will.
I’m sure like me, many of you have been glued to the television and various news sources wondering when—and if—this spill will ever be contained. To make your stomach turn even more, here are some gut-wrenching videos and resources showing the extent of the devastation, and the possible extent of the devastation.
Please send me an e-mail or tweet if you find any other resources of note to share.
Video here shows time lapse of the spill. This is part of NASA’s MODIS Rapid Response System which provides daily near real time satellite images of Earth’s landmasses. The spill has begun a new feature called appropriately enough the Oil in the Gulf of Mexico Project Page. Daily images will be posted here.
For the sake of everyone, let’s hope this all ends soon.
