Spillage

Following on from my previous post. 
I recently came across this article in The Herald which reveals that Big Oil, led by Total, BP and Shell have polluted the North Sea with 69 oil and chemical spills in the last 3 months alone. 
The UK Dept of Energy and Climate Change has released the data and has said that forthwith, the data will be released monthly instead of yearly.

As the environmental impact of the Elgin gas leak is being calculated and as Shell is set to drill in the Arctic this summer, the repeated failures should lead us to question frankly the wisdom of these decisions and the process by which, in the light of the repeated failure, the licenses were granted.
