China oil spill doubles in size, is deemed 'severe threat'
BEIJING — China's largest reported oil spill more than doubled in size to 165 square miles by Wednesday, forcing nearby beaches to close and prompting one official to warn of a "severe threat" to sea life and water quality.

The oil slick started spreading five days ago when a pipeline at a busy northeastern port exploded, sparking a massive fire that took more than 15 hours to contain. Hundreds of boats have been deployed to help with the cleanup.

At least one person has been killed in those efforts, a 25-year-old firefighter, Zhang Liang, who drowned Tuesday after a wave threw him from a vessel and pushed him out to sea, the state-run Xinhua News Agency reported. Another man who also fell in was rescued.

Beaches near Dalian, once named China's most livable city, were closing as oil started reaching their shores, Xinhua reported.

So now another Oil Spill, this time on the other side of the globe... I put this in Deepwater Disaster forums because, well I feel that's what it is, another Deepwater Disaster...
Here's another quote from the article:

Largest spill in recent memory
Officials told Xinhua they did not yet know how much oil had leaked, but China Central Television reported no more pollution, including oil and firefighting chemicals, had entered the sea Tuesday. It was not clear how far the spill was from China's closest neighbor in the region, North Korea.

North Korea isn't even safe! UH-OH! We keep poking, prodding, and sucking the life out of our Mother Earth, and I am thinking she doesn't like it, and as of late, she's been showing it. It's sad, but we brought all of this upon ourselves......

Here are a few more links I found with pictures and articles...

It seems like our perception of how we are all just tenants on this planet has become disstorted. It doesnt matter if your a half empty glass or a half full glass kind of person in these times. Its becoming more and more obvious everyday that our planet is changing and at an alarming rate.It is not goin to slow down. The Heads of State and World Goverments will not disclose any chaos causing information.We can only rely on each other as humans with evolved human morale to prepare for what is to come,and embrace it.My position is this.There are a number of recent spills around the world. There are increasing earthquake and volcanic activity almost daily. These oil rigs are ontop of a well drilled into the earths crust thousands of feet below the surface.What happens to objects close to the epicenter. They explode and crumble.Just my opinion,but i think the earths crust is destablizing,and these oil rigs that are conected to the earths inner surface are feelin the effects first from quakes.

Does anyone get the feeling that these oil spills maybe have nothing to do with human actions, but are covered up natural events? Maybe the government knows what is happening and tries to maintain status quo as long as possible, before earth changes get too obvious.

would explain bp secrecy and lack of media from chinese spill.

Who cares? This is in China. It doesn't serve the media and current administration as a crisis worth taking advantage of, so you'll never hear anything about it.

That is my point exactly! I consider myself very well educated and i do not rely on false flags or doomsday senerios,but i cannot ignore it anylonger.I will be doing alot more research into thie 2012 phenom and scientific info available as far as sciesmic activity and sea floor fissures and cracks.I believe we have started to see the end of our world as we know it. Never thought i would be saying that.

There HAS to be a reason why the US and China feel its nessersary to chuck oil about the sea beds... WHY?!?! With the tech from these countries and the threat and terror caused, you think they'd be sending 4 men in a dingy to clean stuff like this up? They should be putting all there efforts in in order to keep there country neat. Because they are not, it causes conspiracy.

And thats where we come in ^^.

On a even more serious note, think about the locations of these spills, both opposite areas of the globe. Something is going on, and i would say China and the US know something other countries are missing out on possibly, then again, could be anything, but thats what this sight is all about. Waft.
