PBS Oil Leak Widget

I just happened across this widget on the PBS News website when looking for an update on the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of northeastern United States.

I thought it did a good job demonstrating all of the different opinions on the actual amount of oil being leaked into the ocean. US Geological Survey shows the most conservative estimate at 500 000 litres per day while "experts" suggest the leak may be almost ten times worse, at nearly 4.5 million litres per day.
