Oil is likely spilling at 10x the rate reported by BP

May 14th, 2010 · No Comments

From NPR:

The Coast Guard has estimated the flow of oil into the Gulf of Mexico at 5,000 barrels a day. But a scientist analyzing a newly released video of the leak says it’s at least 10 times that amount. That means the oil spilling into the Gulf has already far exceeded the amount lost in the Exxon Valdez accident. NPR science correspondent Richard Harris talks to Michele Norris about the new estimate.
