Keeping up with the BP damage

Thanks to my friend and fellow geographer Susan for sending me the link to this interactive map of the unfolding damage in the Gulf. Be sure to use the slider above each map to show how distributions have changed day by day.

BP is to blame for this, of course, but in a sense we are all responsible. All but the most impoverished humans seem determined to get every drop of oil out of the earth's crust -- no matter where it is -- before we get serious about alternatives.
