There is NO doubt that there is damage from the release. However, on a global scale, this incident is literally a drop in the bucket..or a drop in a swimming pool.

No, I don't condone BP's handling of the situation, but I am very impressed with the final results..what an amazing solution, and at depths and pressures that defy comprehension.

agree,the Valdez oil [refined] is alot different than oil flowing from a well.neither are good but between the 2, I would much rather clean the unrefined oil
