No mention of the environmental impact of the spill but undoubtedly it will be extensive. Let's hope they learn from their mistakes and increase the structural strength of all tanks and pipes for the future. Have to say though, I'm not holding my breath on that one :/

It's ironic that using fossil fuel is causing climate change to begin with.
