Do you think that BP will ever be able to give us an accurate count of how much oil is in the gulf?

    An exactly accurate count would be very difficult for a number of reasons. Primarily, the cap on an oil well rarely has instruments to measure oil flow. That is usually measured somewhere down the line a bit. Thus, the estimates so far have been based on what WAS coming out of the well before the cap blew.

    Aside from that, I would thing that BP officials would be reticent to release a number like that if they didn’t absolutely have to. Granted, it’s already been a public relations nightmare for them, but knowing just how badly they harmed the ocean biological realm would likely cause even more negative reactions, especially by those of us who care about the planet.
