Oil!

Just in case you were thinking I'd forgotten, that oil spill in the Arctic?

Exploration Alaska, the BP subsidiary that operates the pipeline from which more than 910,000 litres of oil has leaked, has recently been fined more than $1.2m (635,000) for its poor environmental safety record.

Still going strong.

Employees claim that they repeatedly warned that money-saving cutbacks in routine maintenance and inspection had dramatically increased the chances of accidents or spills.

It always amazes me how you hire people and you pay them to know and do things, but then you don't listen to them.
