    Large China oil spill threatens sea life, water

    .BEIJING – China's largest reported oil spill emptied beaches along the Yellow Sea as its size doubled Wednesday, while cleanup efforts included straw mats and frazzled workers with little more than rubber gloves.
    An official warned the spill posed a "severe threat" to sea life and water quality as China's latest environmental crisis spread off the shores of Dalian, once named China's most livable city.
    One cleanup worker has drowned, his body coated in crude.
    "I've been to a few bays today and discovered they were almost entirely covered with dark oil," said Zhong Yu with environmental group Greenpeace China, who spent the day on a boat inspecting the spill.
    "The oil is half-solid and half liquid and is as sticky as asphalt," she told The Associated Press by telephone.
    The oil had spread over 165 square miles (430 square kilometers) of water five days since a pipeline at the busy northeastern port exploded, hurting oil shipments from part of China's strategic oil reserves to the rest of the country. Shipments remained reduced Wednesday.
    State media has said no more oil is leaking into the sea, but the total amount of oil spilled is not yet clear.
    Greenpeace China released photos Wednesday of inky beaches and of straw mats about 2 square meters (21 square feet) in size scattered on the sea, meant to absorb the oil.
    Okay, let's hear from the concerned. Should Obama condemn China?

    Was the spill caused by negligence?

    No....... it was done on purpose, just like the BP spill.

    From the rhetoric coming out of the White House you would think BP did it on purpose.... didn't they? Or is Barry not letting a crisis go to waste.

    Yes, he should condemn them, and while he's at it, he can threaten to kick their ass. Then he can threaten to sue them. Oh, wait, he can't do that. We owe them too much money.

    A better question would be: how are all those anti-oil folks going to take it when the Chinese starts drilling 50 miles off the Florida Keys, in the North Cuba Basin?

    Other than human error, or equipment failure, how does an oil well blowout?

    Just here to point out that conservatives will make any news story somehow about Obama.
