Lies, Lies and More Lies, New BP Oil Leak Estimates: 120,000 Barrels Per Day

Remember those 1,000 barrels per day for the BP oil leak, and revised later to maybe 15,000? The official numbers tonight are "up to 60,000". If that were not bad enough, Matt Simmons was on TV again today refuting that new estimate. He says the leak is ... around 120,000 barrels per day.

In addition:

- leak under the ocean spreading very fast, the oil lake underneath the surface of the water could be covering up to 40% of the Gulf of Mexico.
- the leak has no casing: a relief well will not work,
- only possible resolution is a nuclear explosion to convert the rock to glass
