A huge press release went out yesterday from scientists at the National Center for Atmospheric Research - talking about how some computer models show the oil in the Gulf of Mexico getting caught up into the Gulf Stream current and moving up the Atlantic Coast.

While I think we do need to prepare for the "what if this happens" scenario - we also need to remember it is a computer model and not a crystal ball to the future.
Let's hope this cap they are placing right now helps the situation - but let's also consider the next plan of action if the oil does end up moving into the Gulf Stream Current.
