    Maybe Merlin will take his go-yo and set out to find Sir Dudley and Boody. I sure hope he does as I miss Boody’s sence of humor. Nice to see the oil castles on the Gulf big brother. Too bad we are not Drliing baby drill, so we could be a totally independent energy nation. ;:^)

    Focus, Merlin, focus! —Although I do think Dziva is over-acting a little!

    And there’s still the question of how all that oil mysteriously
    disappear along the gulf coast one year later.

    Nature got rid of it.

    When I worked for NMFS, one of the more fascinating things about the Exxon Valdez disaster is how fast the life came back. In 2 years, some 90% of species were back to 70% or greater abundance. When given a chance, nature really does recover.

    It makes sense, though. Oil slicks are not uncommon in areas of the world that have oil deposits. Dozens of them have happened in the Channel Islands over the last couple of centuries. Crack opens up after a quake and BLORP, you have oil bubbling up for a time. Microbes end up eating most of it.
    The salty Dead Sea is unique in that before a 7th Century earthquake, it had almost constant blops of asphalt floating on the surface. It was called the Asphalt Sea for that reason by the Romans. Even more fascinating is that, before the Arabs and Turks reduced that area to bare dirt from careless management, thunderstorms were not uncommon and the Romans wrote about lightning striking the floating asphalt, resulting in burning masses floating on the surface of the Sea.
    Undersea volcanism wreaks havoc on life. From sulfur to CO2 to noise from the eruptions. Some 15,000+ active seamounts just off the Oregon Coast, plus a million+ smaller vents, life has to be renewable in a big hurry. There’s 2.5 million seamounts in the Pacific at large, plus several million smaller vents.. The 200×300 dead zone of the last ten years will heal when the local volcanoes stop producing as much HS gas. (Go to DOGAMI and download their offshore map of the Northwest coast. The sheer number of volcanic vents has to be seen to be believed.)

    They used toxic oil dispersants which made mopping it up impossible. The oil is still down there an keeps showing up and will do so for decades.
