Yes, study the oil spill, and protect Texas

According to the Miami Herald, a group of scientists are proposing that, before the Gulf Oil Spill well is capped, we learn as much about it as we can. How much oil and natural gas are really escaping, where are they going, and what are their effects.

This seems reasonable to me, but it's probably expecting too quick a reaction from BP and federal bureaucracies to expect it to happen.

The Houston Chronicle has an opinion piece which says, again, I believe, correctly, that, with the current and impending destruction of estuaries in the path of the escaped oil, similar locations along the Texas coast are suddenly much more important, and steps should be taken to protect them more carefully than they are now. BP should pay for some of this, too.

Thanks for reading.
