Much Oil Remains in Gulf, Researchers Estimate – WSJ.com

Much Oil Remains in Gulf, Researchers Estimate – WSJ.com.

Researchers at the University of Georgia say that 79% of the oil that leaked out of the damaged oil well is still in the Gulf of Mexico.  Using the same sketchy information that the government had, they came to a more pessimistic conclusion.  They add that even with dispersants and the burning off of the oil, more than half is still in the waters.

Whoever’s numbers are right, one thing still remains.  The oil that is in the Gulf will be affecting the area for decades to come.
