- 529 days ago - action.sumofus.org
This past weekend, an ExxonMobil pipeline carrying nearly 100,000 barrels of toxic tar sands crude spewed into Mayflower, Arkansas. Yards are flooded in black crude, a river of toxic oil flows down the street, and the nearby fishing lake is covered in...

me2 S&N - all spillages should be publicly notifiable, with actions taken to clean up and to prevent reoccurence.

i am so sick of hearing oil companies either breaking laws or bending them as far as they can. don't they understand that they're killing our world and they're included in the "our"?

Thanks for taking action against ExxonMobil!

The people who have this in their back yard and most likely in their cellars must be heartbroken. The value of ones property just took a nose dive and if they are able to live there again it will always be with the reminder of what did happen. Where does one live in the meantime? Is that being covered by their insurance? Is Exxon paying for a new place to reside while this is all going on? No everyone has big cash on hand to simply pay their mortgage and new place to live while things are being sorted out.

Those who voted for Drill Baby Drill........well this is what we can expect, more and more of this type of thing. The wells are not in the middle of a desert over there somewhere, well are being placed up next to people's home and oil lines are running through backyards.

Is everyone ready to start screaming to go to Green Economy? Put people to work? Clean up our messes? Lead the way as a major economic Country should to the future? They will not change unless the population demands.

Gawd, we just NEVER freaking learn. How many times are we going to make this mistake? I mean, we can't always count on the beavers to save us from our own hubris. The ecological, and moral, cost of this insatiable desire to destroy life on this planet through the spilling, and more importantly, burning, of fossil fuels is beyond our ability to pay. Well, that's not quite true. There is a price. It is sort of a deal with the devil kind of thing though. We burn, spill, and spew toxins all over the planet. We see the indicators of danger rising, but we ignore them, because we are, after all, sentient.

But sentience does not equate to all knowing, that would be omniscience. That part we lack. There was a time, 640,000 years ago when co2 levels approached 4ppm, it shut down the oceanic vectoring system, right up there at the neck between Greenland and the British Isles, the same place that is suffering deucedly difficult conditions right now. That shutdown was caused by natural forces, greenhouse gases, but the effect of our forced rise in co2 levels, to over 4ppm now for several years, will be the same. When the oceans stop cycling warm water from the equator to the poles, the planet enters an ice age, 640,000 years ago is now called Snowball Earth, because the ice cores prove the entire planet was covered by a sheath of ice, a mile deep even at the equator. No oxygen based life form will survive that. The last "great" ice age lasted roughly 50,000 years. It formed the landscape we enjoy now.

But another? Now? Human caused? Well, if you think you can hold your breath for 50,000 years, good on you. But no other oxygen based life form can, not even in the oceans, the ice will be too deep for sunlight to penetrate and allow oxygen creating plants to survive. So, somewhere 50,000 or so years into the future, the glaciers will again retreat, the planet will have healed itself of our presence, and it will be again a beautiful blue oasis in space. Without us. Life will again blossom and I hope that the next sentient species to arise reads the fossil record better than we did and understands what we did to bring about our extinction. Perhaps they'll even be civilized. One can hope, not for salvation now, but for them, that our folly is their education.

Gladly signed & noted. Those in charge instituted a "no-fly zone" over this area, preventing reporters and journalists from getting info or taking photos....although a few brave, smart souls were able to capture some footage. And, some lawsuits have been initiated as well. We must not allow this to be glossed over and forgotten by the media. Thanks, Nancy.

Noted and Signed. This is such a terrible mess and will take forever to clean up. I read an article here on Care2 that Exxon does NOT have to pay for any of the clean up because of a law dating back a few years. Tell me this isn't so!! When I turned the TV on and saw this oil slowly coming down an incline into the street and spreading it turned by stomach. We need ALTERNATIVES and NOW. - Who in their right mind would want a Keystone pipeline???? Thank You for posting Nancy.
