    Thousands of Gallons of Crude Oil Spills in Ohio Nature Preserve

    I believe we need to advance fusion power, it could not only help our environment, but could also enable scale economies so vital to more developed political-economies.

    Bob Mason, a stewardship manager for the company that owns Oak Glen Nature Preserve, told the Enquirer that the spill "could definitely have been worse later in the spring when all of our wildlife is coming out of hibernation" and that the frozen turf helped to contain the spill.

    At least it was American crude. Some want us to spill Canadian tar sands crap all over too.

    Newsflash: When you don't transport oil by pipeline, you transport it by truck and boat, both of which actually spill more. When you don't allow oil exploration in the States or encourage it in the West, then it happens in the Gulf and other places, where the environmental policies are less strict to the extent that they are even there (how much do you think that the Chinese operating in Sudan care about protecting the local environment?). If you want to reduce pollution from oil, then you need to start promoting Western development and pipeline transportation.

    Let the Canadians spill their oil for China on their own soil. Why won't they allow a pipeline to their West Coast? Because they are not greedy fools like some here.

    Dude, it is a fossil fuel. We could be advancing fusion and not have this particular problem any more. What is petroleum going do do about desalinating ocean water, for potable purposes or providing power to advances in laser boring methods?

    what part of "we are still going to consume the oil" is too complex, here? If you don't let a pipeline bring it down, it's going to be put on trucks or boats, either of which spill more.

    All great points. Myself, I think having unicorns run on wheels made out of solid rainbows is looking pretty promising, too. We could even breed super-small unicorns to power your home kitchen appliances.

    Until that works out, however, we are stuck with fossil fuel. Wishful thinking is not an adequate replacement for thorough planning and appreciation of the limitations of reality.

    Yeah! Hell with those jobs! Let's go nuclear, because ya know that nuclear waste isn't near as bad as oil.

    Radiation leaks force transfer of nuclear waste from New Mexico to Texas ? RT USA

    Just pointing out - and it's me doing it, and I generally oppose ad sourcinem - but RT America is actually owned and run by the Russian state.
