National Geographic’s exclusive images and video of the Gulf oil disaster

What is happening in the Gulf of Mexico and BP’s ongoing comedy of errors is nothing short of an unmitigated disaster. A disaster that we can’t even begin to fathom the effects of as the oil continues to spew from a pipeline a mile deep in the waters of the Gulf.

National Geographic will be airing a show about the disaster on Thursday May 27 but for now they have a whole bunch of exclusive photographs and video up on their site. Here is some of those photos and one of the videos.
