Here is something really interesting, "Reporters say Exxon has threatened to have them arrested for merely entering the spill site." Which is hindering the news coverage of the massive spill. Local activists are allowed to enter and film but not members of the press. This has led to this article complete with video.
This is just another example to add to the long list of reasons to get off fossil fuels. Solar, wind, nuclear, hyrdo etc. are far better options the present a much, much lower risk to the environment and people. What will it take?
