oil spill from space!

If you thought you liked the BP oil spill when it was just creeping across the ocean’s surface and gently moisturizing the Gulf of Mexico’s ecosystem, just wait until you see this Google Earth program that superimposes the spill onto maps of Manhattan, San Francisco, and Rome. If you don’t have it, download the Google Earth plugin and see humanity’s folly from outer space!

(Thanks, Coudal.)
