Initial estimates had the amount of oil spilling into the Gulf of Mexico at 25,000 barrels a day. This clip, made using the same engine that powers many of today’s biggest games, shows how much oil that really is.And that’s only 25,000. When you consider that, a few months later, the best guess is that the total is at least twice that amount, things get really scary.
