“This is the most vigorous eruption of methane from the sea floor that's been witnessed in the modern history of humans.”

July 6, 2010 College Station, Texas - After the BP (British Petroleum) Deepwater Horizon drilling rig exploded on April 20, 2010, and its Macondo wellhead broke a mile down on the Gulf of Mexico sea floor, that uncontrolled eruption of crude oil, under the extreme pressure of being a mile under the ocean water, has turned into the worst environmental disaster in United States history. Some scientists wonder if the BP oil catastrophe could be creating yet a second disaster where the oil-contaminated Gulf will end up with a huge dead zone without oxygen where marine life cannot live?
