    That is if you belive that the oil isn't going to super heat the air and make the storms even stronger. ::)

    I think the oil would slick the surface. It's pretty common for large oceanic vessels, when in distress or at anchor, to let out an oil bag on the anchor or sea anchor line to help slick the surface over and make the seas a little calmer for the ship. Especially in breaking seas.

    I would have to think that this would have the same effect, only in much larger scale.

    I had a random thought yesterday (most of my thoughts are random these days) as I was cutting the grass. I wonder how "tough" the feds would be acting if that oil well belonged to China and not our closest ally. Not a political statement, just a thought.
