89. So they haven't burned any of it to keep it from going to shore
so people won't see how much is really out there? oh - and did they give a shit that they burned countless animals alive in the sargassum, without allowing people to rescue them? I know that is a different issue but I have to mention it.

And regarding amounts of oil retrieved, burned, or spewing, they have lied before, so what "BP SAID" doesn't mean a whole lot to many people anymore.
