Oil & Gas Next Generation recently released this beautiful graphics about the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is now 80 miles across and the size of Jamaica, and according to new reports is five times worse than first thought, leaking around 5000 barrels into the sea, as opposed to the 1000 barrels first estimated.
