New! Gulf Oil Spill Tracker: Live from the Ocean Floor!

OIL SPILL -- May 21, 2010
Live from the Ocean Floor: New Oil Leak Widget Features 'Spillcam'

By: Hari Sreenivasan

BP's live video stream of oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico is simultaneously tragic and hypnotic. With each passing second, more gallons of crude oil and natural gas escape into the ocean.

Until Thursday, BP and NOAA had stood by their early estimate -- produced April 29, a week after the Deepwater Horizon rig sank -- that about 5,000 barrels (210,000 gallons) were leaking per day from the damaged well, although they had acknowledged that the estimate was not precise.

And after the world first witnessed the 30-second video clip that BP released on May 12, scientists began to wonder more loudly how the estimate could be that low.

Now, thanks in part to congressional pressure, we have a way to watch the environmental crisis unfold in real time via a live video feed. We modified our original Gulf Leak Meter because the video takes our sliding scale out of the abstract and into reality.

I moved it to the center, it was expanding the left column and squishing the center one. Cool? :)

It only slightly expanded the left column on the screens on my pc's. I guess it depends on your rez and if you have widescreen or not. With it in the center it leaves a large black field to the right of the vid.

Maybe we should have another poll?
