The burning question emerging from the oil spill is "how bad will it be?" Some news organizations have created detailed infographics to illustrate the magnitude of the disaster.
Here are some interesting examples we've seen.
The Washington Post has an extremely comprehensive map detailing the oil spill's impact on both the Gulf Coast's economy and ecology.
A graphic created by GDS Digital graphically illustrates the size of the actual leak, what the options are and how much it is going to cost. The graphic concludes that "If not stopped, in just 50 days, the Gulf of Mexico disaster will overtake the devastation of the Exxon Valdez spill."
The National Post uses a graphic to compare the size of the Gulf leak to other leaks in the past.
And a PBS Newshour graphic spells out spill statistics in blunt terms.
