And Today's Forecast for Miami is ... Sunny with a Chance of Oil

Miami_oil

According to at least one model.

The New Times reports: "The latest updates to those forecast has oil from the Gulf spill showing up in Gulf Stream off the coast of Miami today...The way [Dr. Robert H. Weisberg, director of the University of South Florida Ocean Circulation Group in the school's College of Marine Science] explains an eddy has formed in the massive loop of oil still growing in the Gulf. 'If the loop reattaches with the eddy then it could mean a lot of oil for Miami. That is the reality,' he says. 'It all depends on whether the loop current reattaches and those things we can't really predict.' He says that the fact that more oil hasn't been spotted off the coast of Miami, considering it unique position so close to the Gulf Stream, has been pure good fortune."

  1. Wasn't there a model like 2 weeks ago showing the oil hitting the Keys. Does anyone know if that happened? Just wondering. I googled it but found nothing.

  2. Chamber of Commerce already has a slogan:
    "Our ocean comes pre-lubed for your convenience"

  3. BP has been buying up names on Google to redirect searches to keep a lid on info. Don't you wish they spend all the money they're throwing at PR at fixing the situation instead?
