How much oil has BP spilled into the Gulf of Mexico so far?

BP would like to keep the amount of oil spilling into the gulf as quiet as possible. Be sure to slide the "spill-o-meter" all the way to your right to get the most accurate estimate.

This disaster is just beyond words, beyond compensation, beyond repair. While Republicans try to put the blame on Obama (ridiculous! as if BP had nothing to do with it, and as if Cheney-Bush didn't put the energy policy and de-regulation in place that lead to this disaster) and simultaneously scream "drill baby, drill," the oil continues wash up on America's shores.

While BP may be able to shamefully push around little Banana Republics, America must stand up to the BP bully. This company should be liquidated. Its officers should be jailed for life, or worse. An terrible example must be made of BP to send the message that this must NEVER EVER happen again.

Nobody has ever heard of an "air spill" at a wind farm. And the sun spills its energy every day. Why oh why do we remain addicted to these terrible, hellish fossil fuels pollute our waters and air, poison our children, contribute to global warming and keep us kissing the asses of Petro-Dictators and turning a blind eye toward human rights.

Shame on all of us for buying the lie that "We must use oil for the foreseeable future." The oil-lobby (I call them Fossil-fools) has been saying that for 40 years to discourage any organized effort to wean ourselves off of fossil fuels.

Where is my electric car!!! GM, I'm still waiting!
