How ironic ! As the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico was almost over another begun in China as two crude oil pipelines blew up on July 16th in Dalian’s Xingang port, beginning the worst oil spill in the country.
Oil is already polluting massively our air and water as we burn it everyday in our cars, trucks and homes. This is a big problem but we will have to do with it until we find competitive alternatives.
However it would be nice to know that it isn’t polluting in another way. I hope that such events will trigger some reactions on a global scale.
