The EPA's ASPECT Aircraft uses infrared technology to take photos of a locate exact locations of oil in the Gulf of Mexico. ASPECT can tell the difference between crude oil, algae blooms, and turbulent water.

Congressman Gene Taylor says that using ASPECT means that boats don't get caught short handed and ensures that time isn't wasted. Taylor states that oil on our shores was all preventable. The Coast Guard and BP failed to listen to him two weeks ago when Rep. Taylor laid out his plan for solving the problem.

Rep. Taylor said that either they will listen to him now or he will tell them President of the United States to let him run the show and he will fix it.

Go to taylor.house.gov and click on the ASPECT Aircraft photo on the left to download Google Earth and begin to track the oil response with the EPA's ASPECT Aircraft.
