Coast Guard Orders Oil Investigation, Resurrects SpillCam


Lately, oil out in the Gulf has given Charlie a run for his crown as world's most mystifying sheen. Something is bubbling up from the deep, and now the feds want to know what lurks beneath. Yesterday, the Coast Guard ordered Deepwater Horizon owners Transocean to investigate the spot where the Big Oozy was plugged last year. Video feed that was recently beamed from the blown well that gave us last year's leak showed no seepage. But a pipe that broke off the well, and leaked its own fair share of oil, remains among the wreckage, and it could be the culprit.

 

"This is part of the process we take whenever there is an oil sighting that cannot be immediately attributed to a specific source," Coast Guard Captain Jonathan Burton said in a statement.

 

For the occassion, the feds even brought back SpillCam. For the sequel, the flow's gone. So you might even be able to watch it without having to get up to use the facilities. See it again like it was the first time!
