| Helicopter video of a fire vortex erupts inside of a controlled burn during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill response, June 9, 2010. A fire vortex is formed when rapidly rising hot air pulls cooler oxygen-rich air in from the bottom, increasing the temperature of the fire and creating the twisting shape.

Wildlife apocalypse along the Gulf of Mexico coast is fast becoming a reality. Pelicans are becoming trapped by the oil and dead birds and dolphins have been washing ashore, coated in the sludge. Government officials estimate that roughly 83 to 182 million litres of oil have leaked into the Gulf since the April 20 explosion.
