The oil spill is bad, isn't it?

Any ammo for an argument with someone who doesn't think the BP oil spill is bad?

My friend thinks that ships that were sunk during World War II created an even bigger mess, and that we'll recover from this oil spill just fine. Louisiana just wants money, so they're exaggerating the effects. Florida probably isn't affected at all, according to him. "They've only found about 150 dead animals," he said.
I'm speechless, but I want some clear evidence that this spill is damaging our environment as we speak - how it kills fish, how the ecosystem can be affected, etc. Any resources/articles that I can point to as proof?
