St. Francis Xavier professor Alvaro Montenegro says no one knows what the oil will do, but it's unlikely it will reach Nova Scotia. "These currents move away from shore and around North Carolina into the interior of the Atlantic to the east," he said. "Direct impact or oil directly reaching the shores of Nova Scotia is an unlikely probability."
Mark Butler with the Ecology Action Centre says the oil could affect generations of migratory fish like the bluefin tuna. Meanwhile, seafood groups are concerned what the spill will mean for consumer confidence.

Gulf Oil Spill "Could Go on Years and Years" ... by F. William Engdahl
...When the Army Corps of Engineers first attempted to obtain NASA imagery of the Gulf oil slick, which is larger than is being reported by the media, it was reportedly denied the access. By chance, National Geographic managed to obtain satellite imagery shots of the extent of the disaster and posted them on their web site. Other satellite imagery reportedly being withheld by the Obama administration, shows that what lies under the gaping chasm spewing oil at an ever-alarming rate is a cavern estimated to be the size of Mount Everest. This information has been given an almost national security-level classification to keep it from the public, according to Madsen’s sources.
The Corps of Engineers and FEMA are reported to be highly critical of the lack of support for quick action after the oil disaster by the Obama White House and the US Coast Guard. Only now has the Coast Guard understood the magnitude of the disaster, dispatching nearly 70 vessels to the affected area. Under the loose regulatory measures implemented by the Bush-Cheney Administration, the US Interior Department’s Minerals Management Service became a simple “rubber stamp,” approving whatever the oil companies wanted in terms of safety precautions that could have averted such a disaster. Madsen describes a state of “criminal collusion” between Cheney’s former firm, Halliburton, and the Interior Department’s MMS, and that the potential for similar disasters exists with the other 30,000 off-shore rigs that use the same shut-off valves. ...
Without doubt at this point we are in the midst of what could be the greatest ecological catastrophe in history. The oil platform explosion took place almost within the current loop where the Gulf Stream originates. This has huge ecological and climatological consequences.
A cursory look at a map of the Gulf Stream shows that the oil is not just going to cover the beaches in the Gulf, it will spread to the Atlantic coasts up through North Carolina then on to the North Sea and Iceland. And beyond the damage to the beaches, sea life and water supplies, the Gulf stream has a very distinct chemistry, composition (marine organisms), density, temperature. What happens if the oil and the dispersants and all the toxic compounds they create actually change the nature of the Gulf Stream? No one can rule out potential changes including changes in the path of the Gulf Stream, and even small changes could have huge impacts. Europe, including England, is not an icy wasteland due to the warming from the Gulf Stream.

US student's message in bottle found in Ireland Mon Oct 4, 12:26 PM
By The Associated Press
MELBOURNE, Fla. - A message in a bottle sent by a Florida high school student as part of his marine science class has come ashore in Ireland.
Corey Swearingen put the bottle into the Atlantic Ocean in April 2009 and it followed the current all the way to the small fishing village of Kilbaha, Ireland, in County Clare, on the western coast.
A 17-year-old boy and his father found the bottle during a family holiday there. Stephen Flannery of Athelone, Ireland, and his son, Adam, responded via email to the letter, which had urged the reader to write with details of the bottle's location.
Message sealed inside a bottle survives journey of about 16 months in ocean London : United Kingdom | Oct 05, 2010
Corey Swearingen, an American high school student, wrote a message, sealed it in a bottle, dropped the bottle in the Atlantic Ocean along the Florida coast and waited for someone to reply. His actions finally paid off, as after 16 months, someone found the bottle and responded.
Message-In-A-Bottle Found in Ireland OCTOBER 05, 2010
Swearingen’s Melbourne High School marine science teacher Ethan Hall said “I’ve had bottles go as short as a couple miles up the coast. Many around Georgia, the Carolinas and such." Hall’s neighbor, Captain Tim Fletcher, helps release the students' bottles directly into the Gulf Stream from his charter fishing boat.
Climate mythology: The Gulf Stream, European climate and Abrupt Change Richard Seager Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University
A few times a year the British media of all stripes goes into a tizzy of panic when one climate scientist or another states that there is a possibility that the North Atlantic ocean circulation, of which the Gulf Stream is a major part, will slow down in coming years or even stop. Whether the scientists statements are measured or inflammatory the media invariably warns that this will plunge Britain and Europe into a new ice age, pictures of the icy shores of Labrador are shown, created film of English Channel ferries making their way through sea ice are broadcast... And so the circus continues year after year. Here is one example.
The Gulf Stream-European climate myth
The panic is based on a long held belief of the British, other Europeans, Americans and, indeed, much of the world's population that the northward heat transport by the Gulf Stream is the reason why western Europe enjoys a mild climate, much milder than, say, that of eastern North America. This idea was actually originated by an American military man, Matthew Fontaine Maury, in the mid nineteenth century and has stuck since despite the absence of proof.
The Gulf Stream Stalled, Sea Level Rose & the East Coast Flooded in November 2012 February 18, 2013 National
The Gulf Stream has been weakening continuously since 2004, accelerating sea level rise on the U.S. east coast, with the highest impact on sea level rise centered around Cape Hatteras according to a report, accepted for publication in the Journal of Geophysical Research. The International team of oceanographers led by Princeton & Old Dominion University professor Tal Ezer has 99.99% statistical confidence that the correlation between the Gulf Stream weakening and sea level rise is real. fisherynation.com/archives/4546
Portugal Daily View Weather: Floods and landslide follow heavy rains
The district of Santarém is still the part of the country worst hit by flooding and in northern Portugal a huge landslide cut the Guimarães ring road. What's New — 03 April 2013 by Lusa News
With the jet stream much further south than usual, Portugal is getting the rain while there are heath fires on the Scottish hills.
Meanwhile Spanish authorities are keeping an eye on the height of several rivers as reservoirs reach full capacity as a new front with heavy rains is expected Thursday. Besides Santarém, the districts of Aveiro, Braga, Coimbra, Évora, Lisboa, Portalegre, Setúbal and Viseu also have several roads cut, Portugal’s Civil Protection service said this Wednesday.
