They are not accidents.
These devastating events are caused, in large part, by the failure to maintain infrastructure. This is a strategy which augments profits, externalizing costs to ordinary people and to government, which is paid for by ordinary people who do not have experts in tax avoidance working for them as a matter of routine.
Actions speak loudly, and the Oil Industry routinely lies after a spill, telling those in the area they are in no danger.
This site is intended to let victims be heard and also to ensure you have the facts on what to expect if there is a 'disaster' in your area.
The solution is locally organizing an Intervention Team so when, and if, one of these events takes place you will be ready. See Local Action.
