Daily Roundup: June 7, 2010

Upward Bound: BP’s oil, thanks to the Loop and Gulf Stream currents, is likely to end up in the North Atlantic by mid-July. ENN

Only Fair? BP claims its new cap reclaims 10,000 barrels of oil per day. Critics opine that the company should surrender that amount to the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Dot Earth (NYT)

Conflict of Interest:

Reptilian Headache:
The tegu, a four-foot-long lizard, is one of the most recent invasive species to cause problems in Florida. The exotic reptiles in the region are believed to have descended from a dumped pet. Los Angeles Times

Gale Force: As the system exists today, wind could power 35% of Western U.S. states, says a new Department of Energy study. Inhabitat
