It’s tough to understand vague descriptors like “barrels of oil” and “miles,” but the website IfItWasMyHome.com shows what it would be like if the ongoing oil spill were centered on the city in which you live. The above screenshot is of Brooklyn, but you could see it over Paris or anywhere, really. Conveniently, the site also has links to volunteer organizations, worthy groups accepting donations, ways to contact your representatives, and an EPA website that’s accepting ideas about the clean-up (presumably for visionary types only).
