Hurricane plus BP oil spill: “a man-made experiment we wish we hadn’t made”

  1. If Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline project is approved it would carry half a million barrels of crude oil a day from the Alberta tar sands to the port of Kitimat, B.C. The oil would then be loaded into tankers that would sail through the narrow inlets of the Great Bear Rainforest before heading out to sea. At least 225 oil tankers a year would traverse this fragile coastal route, delivering tar sands oil to Asian markets.

    Stop the Enbridge Pipeline. E-mail the Prime Minister and urge him to permanently ban super tankers so that B.C.’s North and Central Coast is not the site of the world’s next disastrous oil spill.

  2. This is such a catastrophe! The clean up process is definitely on all time high. Experts have probably foreseen this situation.

    The question is, have they done enough? Have they acted on this situation fast enough? If not, have they thought of plans to avert even greater destruction? If hurricanes sweep across the area of Louisiana and the oil sludge is still not cleaned up, then it will devastate even more areas. This should not be the case.
