BP Gulf Oil Spill Is Already In Gulf Stream And May Hit North Carolina Beaches Any Day
Alexander Higgins blog is very informative and well researched so far.
A good place to go for updates...

YESTERDAY: My friend just called from St. Pete Beach and said at pass a grille, swimmers
came across a strange algea, and when they checked closer, they had oil all over
them. When they looked out....they could see the "orange". There was an alert
in the St. Pete TImes yesterday, for Manatee and Sarasota to brace themselves,
for the arrival of a plume of oil. I guess it hit a little north of their
predictions, at the bottom of St. Pete. It was hard to wash off, they actually
were given "comet" cleanser to scrub it off. The rest of the swimmers came out
of the water. This is bad news. Where is the help?

Obama will speak to the nation tomorrow night. I am only interested in one
thing right now. The dispersants. Our country ordered them to STOP within 24
hrs, because they know the effects. We have sixteen OTHER dispersants that are
well known and not as toxic. BP said no? Who the hell are they? Turns out,
they are all in bed together with the dispersant company being used. It's all
about money to them. Our government EPA says they have sprayed double the
allowed limit, and everyone knows they are causing harm. I want to know why
they are not ordered to use a less toxic spray, and why we care so much about
their boardroom deals with other companies? This has nothing to do with us. I
want to know why the Dutch were turned away, told by BP they did not need help
in the first few days? If this is how it's going to be, then we need to bring a
criminal case against them. Obama was the biggest recipient of BP cash for his
campaign. Watching him dance around BP and this mess is making me sick.

TONIGHT: Military chopper flyover sited in very rural Citrus County 3 counties north of Tampa and below the BIG BEND area of Florida...
I think the oil is close...

FROM THE OILDRUM (written by insiders and experts in the OIL INDUSTRY):
From the oildrum, written by pros who work in the field. Assessment of situation: very, very bad!
"The system will collapse or fail substantially before we reach the finish line ahead of the well and the worst is yet to come. Sorry to bring you that news, I know it is grim, but that is the way I see it....I sincerely hope I am wrong.

We need to prepare for the possibility of this blow out sending more oil into the gulf per week then what we already have now, because that is what a collapse of the system will cause. All the collection efforts that have captured oil will be erased in short order. The magnitude of this disaster will increase exponentially by the time we can do anything to halt it and our odds of actually even being able to halt it will go down.

The magnitude and impact of this disaster will eclipse anything we have known in our life times if the worst or even near worst happens...

We are seeing the puny forces of man vs the awesome forces of nature.
We are going to need some luck and a lot of effort to win...
and if nature decides we ought to lose, we will...."
