Big Problem

I've been losing a lot of sleep lately over the gusher in Louisianna.60,000 barrels a day is a wopping lot of oil.I don't even know what a barrel looks like.Is it similar to one of those old wooden barrels we grow plants in? Are we all to blame, with are insatiatable thirst for oil? Is BP to blame for quenching our thirst? They're making billions from us so they must have at least some degree of duty of care. They knew the blow out preventer was installed incorrectly but chose to continue drilling. Check this link to see how it would look in your neck of the woods. Flipping heck, it would covet the whole of Port Philip bay and a big chunk of Victoria.
