How are BP cleaning up the oil spill?

How are BP clearing up the oil?
there are probably millions of barrels of oil in the sea now, is it even possible to clean it up?

i heard that there is so much oil in the atmoshpere. it actually rains oil in some parts of america but i doubt thats true.

nope...no rain of oil in the US.

JimBob would be the one to answer this, but I would imagine that the cleanup will only reclaim a fraction of the spilled oil.
