Portland, Oregon: Train Tankers and Tar Sands Oil
Static Preview

A look at what crosses the Steel Bridge (built in 1910) here in Portland, Oregon a few miles from my home. Is that crude oil in those tankers? As citizens we need to start asking questions that will make our leaders uncomfortable as they may not even be aware of where and when crude oil is moved through urban areas. Produced and written by Ruth Ann Barrett for her YouTube Channel, PDXDowntownerPublished on Apr 2, 2015

Please note:
The New York Times documentary, A Danger on the Rails, addresses the issue in terms of Albany, New York and is in the EarthSayers.tv collection, High Risk Energy Alternatives here. Published on April 22, 2015.

How The Exxon Valdez Disaster Still Affects Victims Today
Static Preview

The Legacy of The Exxon Valdez (2008): Oil is still polluting the shores and bankrupted fishermen are still waiting for the $5 billion payout granted in 1994.

Exxon Valdez leaked more than 40 million litres of crude oil into Alaska's pristine waterways nineteen years ago. Today, oil is still polluting the shores and bankrupted fishermen are still waiting for the $5 billion payout granted in 1994.

After a series of appeals by the company, $5 billion became $2.5. Now that the case has reached the increasingly pro-business US Supreme Court, fishermen fear they could end up with nothing. While ExxonMobil claims the area has returned to robust health, locals tell of vastly depleted fish stocks, which almost disappeared after the spill. ExxonMobil claims the fish fell victim to a virus, a theory disputed by the fishermen, who are backed by scientific evidence: "The fish can't disappear like they're telling the public. [Exxon's]] explanation just isn't practical," says an expert. As the legal case drags on, a fifth of the plaintiffs have died and the rest have lost hope. For them, Exxon has already won no matter what. Yet the oil giant keeps repeating that the spill was a tragic accident and that the company has acted responsibly towards the local communities. Fishermen whose livelihoods were ruined feel cheated: "Exxon says that everything's coming back and everything's fine - it's a lie."

Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill: 35 days from Space: NASA
Static PreviewThe MODIS instrument, on board NASA's Terra and Aqua satellites, is capturing images of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The spill began on April 20, 2010 with the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig. This short video reveals a space-based view of the burning oil rig and, later, the ensuing oil spill through May 24, 2010. The oil slick appears grayish-beige in the images and changes due to changing weather, ocean currents, and the use of oil dispersing chemicals. Images in the video time series were selected that show the spill most clearly. The full image archive is available on the MODIS Rapid Response Web site at http://rapidfire.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/

Exxon Valdez 20 years later - Part 3 of 3
Static Previewgolefttv March 26, 2009Its been 20 years since the Exxon Valdez oil tanker spilled into the Prince William Sound, and dumped almost 11 million gallons of oil into the water. But even after two decades of trials and environmental cleanup, conditions are still dismal for the residents who have been trying to get justice. And to make things even worse, we still don't have a full understanding of what really happened when the tanker hit the reef. And that's where our good friend Greg Palast comes in. Greg has been covering this story since the start, and it was the lack of real investigations and inquiries into this disaster that kickstarted his career in journalism. Ring of Fire's Mike Papantonio talks with Palast about the true history of the Exxon Valdez.
