Further to yesterday’s post on the BP Deepwater Horizon post and the cover-up in process, a link was sent to me by somebody with close ties to the effects of the Exxon Valdez oil spill. The place to go is the link that’s covered by the following blurb:
Reliving the tragedy of the Exxon Valdez
For those living on Kodiak Island, Alaska, watching the news these days brings back nightmares of 21 years ago, when the massive Exxon Valdez oil tanker hit rock, spilling millions of gallons of crude oil into the sea. Fisherman Dave Kubiak joins us from Kodiak Island to talk about how the Exxon Valdez spill affected his life and his community.
You then click through and listen to 9 minutes and thirty seconds of real experience in these things. It’s genuine, simple and moving to listen to an honest man who went through the experience of the oil and the subsequent company-led excuses and lies….another example of plus ça change. Mustlisten material and thanks due to A. Reader for sending it in. Here’s the link again, to make sure you go listen.
