Rest in Peace,
If you want to feel your heart sink, watch the Deepwater oil flow and think of the Real Keys to America's Future

If you want to feel your heart sink in your chest, consider the forecast above shows the Deepwater oil flow is expected to round Cuba and the tip of Florida and head north into the Atlantic, within a week or so, and think of the Keys to the Future. The current progress of the flow of oil from the Deepwater drilling disaster in the Gulf of Mexico is following the forecast worst case expectations - and the amount of oil being spilled seems to be at the worst case level - and the efforts to stop the leak are nearly at worst case conditions... changing daily. This means Florida is in deep trouble, and oil will be flowing up the Eastern Atlantic coast next week.
Not much has changed since my write-up on this crisis on realNEO, May 5th - the worst possible situation keeps getting worse, as expected - “Whatever comes will flow west of Dry Tortugas and towards Cuba before it comes back north” - consider where the oil flow was headed back then, and how far we've come since...
How far have we come since? See the latest animation here...
