An Order of Magnitude higher

Leaked report: Government fears Deepwater Horizon well could become unchecked gusher

No need to get hysterical.

2.1 million gallons a day at 90 days....that's 200 million gallons. The Valdez was 7 million. What does 200 million gallons of oil do to the Gulf of Mexico?

I'm not hysterical...I'm numb. I can't comprehend it.

It's mind-blowing. I'm more dreadfully panicky than anything else. Hell, my family even offered to put us up in OKC. We've got the perfect perch on which to watch this epic environmental fuck-up unfold, and we are also the guinea pigs for these corporations' underestimations of the scenarios concerning deep water drilling.

Excuse me, I'm getting sick all over again...

This may be the saddest thing that has happened in my lifetime. Numb about covers how we're feeling, too.
