Al Jazeera has been reporting on worldwide issues for a few years. Their investigative journalism is far better than any televised news in the US that
I can think of. Get on YouTube and look for some Al Jazeera specials - hour long documentaries on various topics. They cover stories in all different
countries. I think they do a great job but judge for yourself.
In fall of 2004 Hurricane Ivan caused perhaps up to 26 wells (maybe more that have since been repaired) to leak, and this wasn't discovered (at least
by people who didn't operate the wells) until they were investigating the BP Oil Spill in the summer of 2010. Platform 23051 has created a visible
oil slick, and apparently no one noticed.. At the time it was "discovered" it had already been leaking for nearly six years. You can't tell me people
were flying into and out of these platforms for SIX YEARS and no one noticed.
Who is watching the people that should be watching these wells?
I too have thought about how the GOM/BP spill and Fukushima are going to make some corporations a whole ton of money. On top of these there have been
numerous oil spills around the world that came after BP - they just weren't in our front yard so we Americans either didn't hear about or didn't care
There was the Nigerian Oil Spill

There was the Rainbow Pipeline Spill
There was the Kalamazoo River
where people were advised to evacuate because of dangerous levels of
were found in the air..
So whether by design or not, we're being pretty effectively poisoned - and people wonder why we see cancer and autism and learning disabilities and
other chronic health problems increasing at alarming rates. I'm sure this is at least a small piece of the puzzle.
For a more comprehensive list:
ETA: After the BP Spill I only ate wild caught Pacific Fish, farm raised, and local trout. Now I only eat farm raised fish and local trout. I wonder
how long I have until I can only eat farm raised fish.
