You need to read the article again. It clearly states the problem increased after the oil spill and the increase has continued to this day. If you, or anyone, thinks you can spill that much oil into the Gulf and not do damage you are delusional or you work for the oil industry. The spill of course was made worse by the fact that no one, least of all BP, had any idea of how to stop it. I live in Sarasota, Florida and understand exactly what we are risking by polluting the Gulf of Mexico with oil.
