If It Was My Home is a simple website that overlays the BP oil spill over any location on earth. Its default setting centers in on your location based on your IP address, so the devastation really hits home.
I see, read, and hear about the tragic spill every day but never quite realized the immensity of its spread until now. It’s scary knowing that the area it covers is now bigger than some U.S. states.
Via Flowing Data.
P.S. — Not to make light of the situation, but does anyone else think the spread of the oil looks like Yoshi?
