Drum heads are made from plastic film which is just one of many products made from oil. Also, this forum is a hub of educational information. It's good for drummers to be informed of events that change the world. Now, as me and my buddy bea01 were saying...
The oil's spread was initially increased by strong southerly winds caused by an impending cold front. By April 25, 2010, the oil spill covered 580 square miles (1,500 kmē) and was only 31 miles (50 km) from the ecologically sensitive Chandeleur Islands. An April 30, 2010, estimate placed the total spread of the oil at 3,850 square miles (10,000 kmē). The spill quickly approached the Delta National Wildlife Refuge and Breton National Wildlife Refuge.
