    No its nothing to do with the oil barons that they simply cannot deliver nearly enough electricity (either reliably or affordably) to be in any way a practical proposition

    I guess that's the unintended consequence of refusing a land based pipeline.

    The pipeline was on land. The oil flowed into a culvert and then into the ocean. The more pipelines we have the more leaks we will get. At least this was American oil though and not the tar sands crud that is mixed with other toxic crud to get it to flow.

    That's a plus. It would be a shame to lose oil we had bought from someone else.

    The shame would be if it was oil we never owned or got to use. All we get is the pollution from that.

    I haven't had a utility bill in 19 years. These bafoons can continue to gulp up their dirty fossil fuels as they wish, I'll keep laughing at them.

    Coal Oil Point seep field - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    This spill occurred near one of the world's largest natural oil seeps. The seeps produces somewhere between 3-17k gallons of crude into the Santa Barbara Channel everyday. So this spill is a little over 1 day's worth of natrual seepage. The world will go on.

    then it was a pretty stupid engineering idea by CA to let that culvert lead out to the ocean.
