I just watched, 2 seconds ago, on Good Morning New York that locals can indeed smeel the oil, it has reached Florida, and they plan to set it a flame as soon as today.

> I hope someone in the birding community is giving input to authorities that are considering setting fire to the oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico. I wonder what the impact would be on peak trans-gulf migration considering the size of the slick. Late migrating species might take a big hit. I also wonder if fumes are emitted from the slick. Perhaps there are no fumes from unprocessed crude ... ? Perhaps this seems like an absurd idea but I read it was actually done once before.
