If We Were to See

Here’s a fun quote from Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, speaking at today’s gulf disaster hearing:

She said the government was monitoring the loop current very closely and were treating it as if it were a coastline.

“In other words… if we were to see that the oil really was beginning to move toward the loop current we would begin doing some things in the way of dispersant and booming… as if the loop current itself were a piece of the coast,” she said.

Madam Secretary, you might want to take a look at this (via SkyTruth):

And while you are at it, take a look at this analysis from Dr. Jeff Masters @ Wunderground.

And this analysis from another scientist (@DailyKos).

Because the Miami Herald is now reporting this:   Coast Guard: Tar balls along shore in Key West

To see, perhaps to scream.
