A protest in NYC drew some 200 theatrical protesters to a BP station in SOHO. Although the protest got media coverage from ABC and FOX, the police had found out about it ahead of time, and the intended protest area had been cordoned off. Also, the FOX report seems to indicate that Nuclear Power is the safer alternative to oil, which is outlandish.
Meanwhile, the US Coast Guard declared that the Deep Horizon spill is 5 times worse than they originally thought. And that doesn’t count the spill in Singapore. Singapore’s oil spill, caused by a ship colliding with a tanker, has caked the eastern coast with oil. 81 oiled animals have been rescued thus far, but we are not certain how many have died.
