Noted Most people don't know that there is (on average) a major oil leak or disaster every week. It's just not reported.

Keep in mind that the right wing runs over 95% of all media here in the US. No doubt, same for other countries.

New Zealand should switch to wind. there is no need to use oil there. the place is so magnificent. it is heart breaking to see that oil has polluted it.

I saw this on the news and the globules of oil that were being collected on the beaches were horrible. I worry about the marine life and the ecosystem. Pray for rehabilitation of the ocean.

This is another oil spill disaster and surely not the last one!
I really wonder when they will learn that we have to stop oil drilling. There are enough options to produce power, electric cars, etc.
