Where has all the oil gone?

The question, "Where has all the oil gone?" has been answered in the media in recent days by scientists providing much speculation about how the oil may go away but little hard data about what is actually happening in the Gulf.

"The danger of this conjecture is that people are already beginning to tune out and assume that everything is fine, even within the spill response," says Marylee Orr, director of the Louisiana Environmental Action Network.
