Folk reporting about BP

Hurricane Creekkeeper John Wathen posts this video of a recent flight over the Gulf of Mexico. I don't necessarily agree with all of Wathen's conclusions, and I could have done without the souping-up at the end. Still, a lot of what you need to see about the Deepwater Horizon disaster is right here -- the bad booming, the dolphins and whales swimming in oil, the slick and sheen and gunk spilling night and day into the water.
If you're looking for the big critters, start around minute six.
