14. We're Also Getting Water Testing...
I keep saying this disaster is "uncharted waters" and the impact will take years to measure. We still have no real idea of what's out there or what affect it will have on the long term health of the GOM.

One would think that if there's a large dome of methane or other dangerous gas that is forming, it can be detected and burned off far from shore...every day there are thousands (ugh) of rigs in the Gulf doing burning off methane and other gasses...so I think this fear is one that can be confronted.

The dispersants are another issue...just the fact BP has admitted this has never been used on such a wide scale set off the first red flags and it's important to keep the pressure up on pushing the government to get BP to end this destructive hail mary.
