This is all so awesome

Not trying to act morbid, but this sucks.
Orange-colored oil from the Gulf of Mexico oil spill has washed up on the western side of North Island, the northenmost sliver of the Chandeleur and Breton Island chain.

"On a small section of the northernmost island, we could see a pretty significant buildup of oil," said Times-Picayune photographer John McCusker, after an aerial tour of the spill this morning. "It's not inundated, but oil has definitely reached the island."

It really does suck. It will be interesting to see what Obama does now and what comes of this spill. Although there has not really been a spill like this since the Valdez (and that was a tanker wreck), I 'spect there will be some changes - some for the good and some not so good.

Being a surfer it kinda makes me a whacko, tree hugging environmentalist by default (but oddly I support nuke power). Hopefully it brings forward more serious discussions on energy coming from a source other than dead dinosaurs.
