    This is a massive ecological disaster over which we have zero control. You pretty much need a morbid sense of humor, or risk becoming depressed/crazy. Check it out; http://www.ifitwasmyhome.com/

    Some fun places to compare;

    Galapagos Islands
    London (of course)
    Madagascar
    Iceland
    Pripyat (Chernobyl Nuclear Reactor)
    Kyoto
    Tel Aviv
    Ireland
    Bowen, Austrailia (roughly mainland center of The Great Barrier Reef)
    Lake Baikal, Russia (largest freshwater body on Earth)

    Wow, yea. Seeing it cover London was a real eye opener... Or atleast.. Portsmouth.

    Try "Portsmouth, UK" and it covers nearly the entire south coast.

    Dude, I just tried it with Brighton, which is near where I grew up and it covers nearly the entire south east portion of England.

    Shit is crazy man. Am I the only one who felt compelled to click 'Put it back in the Gulf' before closing the page?

    I just checked it, I put it over my town then notice that when i moved it up a couple of states and found that it is ruffly the size of Maine. At this point the government shouldn't hold back for months any method that might harm the environment because it has already destroyed most of it. I heard other countries have volunteered like the Netherlands and we just turned them away

    as john stewert said "the problem now isn't getting the oil out of the coast, it's getting everything else out of the oil"

    This thing covers the whole east of Scotland, and most of the west. The only bit untouched is everything on the other side of loch ness / Ben nevis.
