      The Torrey Canyon Indecent was a true embarrassment for the UK Ministry Of Defense.They sent out aircraft after aircraft to try and ignite the damn thing by bombing it.Only about 20% of which acutely impacted the target.And then it only made matters worse.

        …and the US goverment almost totally protected the [US] owners, refusing to help prosecute and eventually letting them pay a small fraction of the cleanup costs. Then again, the USA also let the [US] owners of the Exxon Valdez off with $500 million instead of $5 billion on appeal and that was on their own shores, and are still protecting the [US] companies and individuals responsible for Bhopal.

        I find it hard to be sympathetic, you reap what you sow.

      Hmm, Amoco Cadiz as well, the US courts let the US company pay only 5% of the cleanup costs and cleared them of all blame.

      ~2 million gallons a day, 60 days (as of June 18th) is ~120 million gallons a day leaking from Deepwater Horizon. Very soon we’ll eclipse the Ixtoc spill.

      Why wasn’t the largest oil spill in the world put in there? Saddam Hussien intentionally dumped 400 million gallons of crude oil into the Persain Gulf at the end of the Gulf War in 1991.

      Isn’t there one in Nigeria that’s been going on for 20 something years?
