VENICE, La/HOUSTON (Reuters) - The U.S. government threatened on Sunday to remove BP from efforts to seal a blown-out oil well in the Gulf of Mexico if it doesn't do enough to stop the leak, though it acknowledged only the company and the oil industry have the needed know-how.

The Coast Guard said that over 65 miles of Gulf Coast has experienced "shoreline impact" from the spill and less than half of it could be cleaned up relatively quickly, underscoring the growing ecological toll of the disaster.
