Set aside for a moment the disgust you feel when you find out that a web site is taking bets on what species are most likely to go extinct from the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.  Now, can you think of any better way to figure out what species are in the most danger from the spill?  The odds make it look like the critically-endangered Kemp’s Ridley Turtle will be the first to go; at least four have already been found oiled.
