Oil Slick in Utah?

Posted by italco on June 13, 2010

   

  

“A leak from Chevron’s underground oil pipeline may have gone undetected for hours as it spilled 50 gallons of crude a minute Saturday into Salt Lake City’s Red Butte Creek.

The oil blackened the east-side creek, stained scores of birds, prompted the closure of Liberty Park and sent oil as far west as the Jordan River.” http://www.sltrib.com/news/ci_15284499?source=rv

We now have a “Land vs Water” Oil spill disaster for the oil companies to be proud of and compare data. I will say, we had a much better response to this pipe line break.

I am finally convinced that our dependancy on oil needs to end. Too bad it took two major spills to get me there.

How many spills will it take for the rest of the country to get on board?

I only pray we find no corruption issues related to this spill….
