BP Oil Spill: Online Live Feed

The BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico from the Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion is still causing major concerns and now we can all see for ourselves exactly how bad the situation is. Lawmakers in the U.S. yesterday wanted the public and scientists to be able to see a live feed and have now launched live streaming of the spill, 5,000 feet below sea level.

Rep. Ed Markey, D-Mass., said in a statement, “”This video will allow the world to see the damage that is occurring in our oceans, and reinforce the urgency to end this disaster,” according to msn.com. Markey is the chair of the committee leading a House investigation into what happened and he also pointed out that it may be BP’s spill but its American’s Ocean.

Meanwhile Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., is also hosting a live feed and he feels it will help the scientific community and experts help to help discover exactly what we can learn from the incident and why it happened, and also feels it’s important that everybody can see exactly what’s going on.

The live feeds are available here billnelson.senate.gov/ and here globalwarming.house.gov/spillcam, although demand is sometimes making access slow so be patient. For more on this go to msn.com. If you take a look at the video, we’d be interested to know what you think about the current situation so why not let us know.
