That's what you call a friend.


Barely visible in the thick sludge of crude oil, a worker pulls a struggling colleague to safety in the Chinese port of Dalian, Liaoning province. A massive explosion at a refinery as a tanker was off-loading its cargo Friday night resulted in a slick covering 71 square miles of the Yellow Sea.
Oil imports were still restricted at Dalian, which is home to a 19 million barrel strategic petroleum reserve, as the clean-up operation continued Tuesday.
The authorities have used some 23 tonnes of oil-eating bacteria and called in a total of 800 fishing boats to help some 24 specialist vessels. Dispersant chemicals and absorbent materials are also being deployed. The photo was released Tuesday by environmental group Greenpeace.

Glad to see them both come out of that situation.

Interesting to see something about an oil spill that doesn't have anything to do with BP for a change. Good to see that the workers are alright.

I like this picutres because it brings some perspective to how bad this really is. This how humanity it right now, were drowning in Oil, and eventually we'll sucumb to it, and there wont be anyone there to save us in the end. I just hope we can see how screwed we are and move more into green energies.

Are those real?? That fellow looks awfully clean for swimming in oil. His face is too pristine. Looks photoshopped to me. The last one shows lots of oil smudges on the forearm of the man in front and on the face of the guy on the stretcher, but even the hair of the rescuer is w/o a sign of oil.

True, but if they are swimming in oil, they should all be covered in it. Look at the second picture. The rescuer just looks a little too pristine. I think if would be a wonderful thing, if it happened.

you know there has to be some long term effect there going to suffer from,

i cant see them walking away from that with out developing skin cancer later or having deformed children, thats a crazy thick amount of chemicals to be swimming through.

They all weren't in the oil. Only the 2 men, The one being rescued and his collegue. The others' most likely pulled them men from the boat they were in'
