Inconvenient Problems

Ok, 'inconvenient' is probably not strong enough a word. But if climate change wasn't enough reason to move to renewable energy, surely America's Oil spill is another. Again, spill is hardly strong enough to describe something that is now almost as large as the Exxon Valdez disaster of the 80s.

This animation (courtesy NOLA) shows the spread of the oil spill over the last couple of weeks. Oh, and for scale, across the top of the map are the states of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida.
