Oil Spill Images & Video Footage

The following images and videos speak for themselves, so the only comment we'll make is that we discourage looking at any of them while eating. The NY Times has published an article investigating the estimates of the amount of spill released by BP and the government. 5,000 barrels a day may be a grand understatement. Please also see this post for ways we can help.
