Bill Nelson posts live footage of oil spill on his website

Bill Nelson says he's won a week-long tug of war with BP -- and the result is live footage of the spewing well on the ocean floor.

Watch it here. There's also "never-before-seen" archival video showing tens of thousands of gallons of opaque liquid being injected into a massive gusher in a broken pipe attached to the blowout preventer. The video
comes just as the Environmental Protection Agency informed BP officials that the company has 24 hours to choose a less toxic form of chemicals to break up its oil spill in the Gulf.

UPDATE: Nelson says BP is now conceding the leak is more than 5,000 gallons a day.

The oil spill is an environmental, health and economic disaster, it needs to be open to all help available. There are estimates of 4 million gallons a day and counting.

We have offered assistance to BP and the Gulf States in offering sight of the chemicals in the water at night so they can optimize clean up. Haven't gotten replies through Unified Command Center and hope that means they are already imaging at night except media would be reporting it. Here is a link to an infrared image of oil in water, the same amount of information would have been available at night. http://www.thermoguy.com/blog/index.php?itemid=35
