Oil Spill Expected to Enter Gulf Stream
The oil leak from Deepwater Horizon ruptured wellhead is closing in on a circulating current in the Gulf of Mexico called the Loop Current, and it’s feared that it will enter the Gulf Stream possibly by early next week.
The University of South Florida College of Marine Science Ocean Circulation Group (OCG/CMS/USF) has prepared a video showing the trajectory of the oil spill (4 -8 May) and the how the Gulf currents are being impacted. See animation update here (18 – 21 May 2010).

New Lawsuit Targets Federal Officials
The environmental law firm Earthjustice has filed a new lawsuit on behalf of Gulf Restoration Network seeking to reverse what it called an illegal waiver of safety regulations, which was granted to BP (It also covered other oil companies drilling off the coasts o Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi) in 2008 and runs through 2013.
The suit names Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, Assistant Interior Secretary Wilma Lewis and the MMS Director Elizabeth Birnbaum as plaintiffs, and is one of at least 10 dozen various suits filed against BP Plc.
To Earthjustice Law Firm: How much more evidence of corruption and/or incompetence will you need to sue the entire U.S. Administration out of office? Please respond!
