Scientists think Gulf can recover from massive oil spill | NOLA.com.

An interesting read over at NOLA, which describes the Gulf of Mexico as capable of recovery.  The biggest troubling aspect, however, are the wetlands that ring the Gulf.  The wetlands are disappearing.  Plus there’s the dead zone that appears each year and is caused by agricultural activities along the rivers that feed into the Gulf.

The article concludes that the Gulf is like a prize fighter that’s learned to take abuse and bounce back, but that it’s unclear how long that will last.
