A Bad Spill is if I Spill a can Paint in the Garage. Trying to clean up
4 Litres of Paint is a Nightmare.
Now depending who's figures you use it's somewhere 15,000,000 and
150,000,000 gallons of Oil.
A spill you can wipe up with a damp cloth. But 230+ Olympic Swimming
pools, is that a lot really. That depends how you quanify it, against
total amount of water in the Oceans, it's just a drop in a bucket.
And while it's good see Obama wanting to reduce the intake of Fossil
Fuels.....But then all these products are made from by products of Oil
Petrol for cars
Diesel for cars
lorries and ships
Aviation fuel for planes

Our entire lives are dependant on using Toxic materials that will
kill all Life forms.
Americans consume petroleum products at a rate of three-and-a-half gallons of oil and more than 250 cubic feet of natural gas per day each!
That's just an Obscene amount of Oil
