How bad could it get?

From the Los Angeles Times, and referring to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico:

In the worst case, the disaster could grow at 12 times the rate of current estimates, BP officials say at a Capitol Hill briefing.

BP officials Tuesday told congressional representatives that the Gulf of Mexico oil spill could grow at a rate more than 10 times current estimates in a worst-case scenario — greatly enlarging the potential scope of the disaster.

And the Times also reports some environmentalists think the president might be able to advance his climate-change agenda as a result of the spill.
