In 1989, a tanker ran aground off the coast of Alaska, causing one of the worst oil spills in United States history. Now 25 years later, the lessons of the Exxon Valdez continue to resonate.

It is sad to see what these oil companies are being allowed to do to our oceans and the Gulf of Mexico, and our lakes too.

Watched video and read. And they still try to say the area have been cleaned up. but it is still affecting the ecosystem 25 years later. Thanks Cher.

It appears that whatever lessons that came from this man-made disaster have not been learned and certainly not applied. The oil industry continues to run rampant across the globe, as they desperately try to squeeze every inch of fossil fuel from the planet with earth damaging fracking and artic exploration, instead of focusing on alternative energies. In the U.S. the oil industry is the most profitable industry in the world, yet continues to receive financial subsidies from the government. Greed and indifference will be our undoing and we will all suffer from this.

Don't be fooled. The Exxon Valdez has long since been surpassed by very much worse spills. The corporations have simply gotten better at hiding them.
