Some perspective on the BP oil gusher

First off, the purpose of this post is not to downplay or make light of the current oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. I just find it fascinating that there have been oil spills in the past that have been so much worse, but yet life has gone on. Trying to be a glass-half-full kind of guy, I think of these oil spills of the past when I wonder what the future will hold for the coasts of Louisiana and Florida. As you check out the 10 biggest oil spills in history, remember that the emission from the current one stands at about 30 million gallons.
