    .

    .
    however, 5 million barrels are over 200 million gallons
    .
    AND, DON'T FORGET, THAT, THIS DISASTER; WOULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED NEARLY ENTIRELY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    In regards to the 'upcoming period of Solar Maximum activity'.

    Thanks entirely to America's Shadow Government created by the depraved and utterly corrupt Republican administration of Bush-Cheney under the guise of 'Dept. of Homeland Security', America's taxpayers have poured hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars into America's Reconn Satellites, Space and Global sensors and are entirely silent on the high emissions flowing from this solar systems Sun. It appears American citizens after footing the bill are the last of the last to be told what is occurring with this solar systems Sun.

    The extreme rise in temperature in the large Mediterranean Sea indicates billions of excess BTU's have already been stored in that body of water alone.

    Perhaps Wikileaks will reveal to the world what is actually going on and NASA and NOAA have already determined, go figure!
