Tuesday afternoon, an onshore pipeline broke and spilled about 21,000 of crude oil into a storm drain that emptied in the the ocean near Refugio State Beach, a pristine cove about ten miles north of Santa Barbara.

The spill covered about four miles, and beaches in the area remain closed while emergency crews attempt to clean up the mess.

This is terrible. My condolences to anyone living near the Santa Barbara coastal area. Growing up in a coastal area, it truly saddens me that such a pristine and beautiful environment and all the creatures that live in it are being destroyed, one oil spill at at a time. The question I ask myself is how many oil spills will it take for humans to finally make a change and stop depending on oil, if that ever happens? If it doesn't, then it's only a matter of time before we destroy our Mother Earth and all of Its lovely creatures, and ultimately, our selves. Only time will tell I guess.

This would be Jerry Brown's fault.

This was already posted yesterday, but now it looks like the initial estimates of 21,000 are quite low.

Chances are the very device you are using to post to this thread is a byproduct of petroleum. What percentage of your household items are absent of petroleum or its byproducts? It is also in items such as medications and even beer. Hard to live in this age of "gotta have it" without good old crude oil.
