The Search for BP's Oil

Very sticky problem

Excellent article on the toxic waste that still exists in the gulf. I work for a small environmental firm and we have had people involved in the cleanup effort. This toxic mixture is not going away. It's nasty and will be with us for a long time. The press seems to have moved on, as if the oil has dissipated or magically disappeared. It has not—we will not know the extent of the devastation for many years to come.
