Leaked Memo Sees Bigger Oil Risk - Dot Earth Blog - NYTimes.com

Leaked Memo Sees Bigger Oil Risk - Dot Earth Blog - NYTimes.com: "Ben Raines, an award-winning environment reporter in Alabama, unearthed a two-day-old federal memo today proposing that the flow of oil from the wrecked exploratory well in the Gulf of Mexico could vastly increase. Quoting the memo, Raines wrote:

‘The following is not public,’ reads the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Emergency Response document dated April 28. ‘Two additional release points were found today in the tangled riser. If the riser pipe deteriorates further, the flow could become unchecked resulting in a release volume an order of magnitude higher than previously thought.’"
