Another Argument in Favour of Wooden Toys

Gulf of Mexico Oil Slick

Check out this graphic of the cumulative total number of gallons spilled into the Gulf of Mexico since this whole thing started on 20 April 2010. You can play with the sliders, too, to estimate the total if our best guesses about the volume of the gusher are wrong …

I know that toys made from wood and other renewable resources aren’t perfect, but last time a tree fell over, it didn’t start leaking wood into the ecosystem, either.

Thanks to PBS for this sobering graphic.
