George Ochenski's written about the BP oil disaster a few times, and it's obviously dominated the national news. Well, now you can cut straight to the source and watch the leak in real time via a live feed provided by BP.
The footage is pretty shocking—just massive amounts of gunk shooting into the Gulf. That is, when the feed's working. We found the footage to be sporadic. BP also issued this disclaimer:
Please be aware, this is a live stream and may freeze or be unavailable from time to time.
Throughout the extended top kill procedure — which may take up to two days to complete - very significant changes in the appearance of the flows at the seabed may be expected. These will not provide a reliable indicator of the overall progress, or success or failure, of the top kill operation as a whole. BP will report on the progress of the operation as appropriate and on its outcome when complete.
