Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Gulf Spill May Far Exceed Official Estimates
National Public Radio - 5/17/2010.
The amount of oil spilling into the Gulf of Mexico may be at least 10 times the size of official estimates, according to an exclusive analysis conducted for NPR. At NPR's request, experts examined video that BP released Wednesday. Their findings suggest the BP spill is already far larger than the 1989 Exxon Valdez accident in Alaska, which spilled at least 250,000 barrels of oil.

If those nurseries have major problems with insects, it could put them out of business.
