The Rachel Maddow Show - BP releases terrifying photo of oil leak

The Rachel Maddow Show - BP releases terrifying photo of oil leak:

You can see why BP hasn't got this image of the Deepwater Horizon disaster at the top of its homepage.
From the Houston Chronicle:
BP spokesman Mark Proegler said today that the 5-foot tall containment dome, or top hat, meant to contain the flow of this leak is now sitting on the sea floor as crews continue working on connecting it with a pipe to a surface tanker above.
"It should be in operation by the end of the week," Proegler said.
The emphasis is ours. The horror is everyone's.

  1. This is a major ecological disaster occurring in slow motion. One irony of this situation is that BP actually has a record of being fairly environmentally friendly, at least in comparison to some other oil companies.
