“In the United States alone, roughly 20,000 oil spills were recorded between 2000-2008, totalling some 4 million gallons.”
They’re tragedies that we’re just supposed to live with, they tell us. After all, ‘We’re only human. We all mistakes’.
Maybe it’s enough to explain a couple oil spills—like the one by that guy who ‘accidentally’ dropped his bucket into an open sewer—But, of course, we’re talking about far more than one or two.
