Peak Oil Peak Oil Peak Oil Peak Oil!

Oops. Freudian slip. So I made the connection, I admit.

They say no one was monitoring a fuel transfer, so approximately 435 gallons of diesel was dumped into the Tacoma waterways on Monday. "There were no immediate reports of damage or contaminated marine life," the Seattle PI said. Not immediate, so shall we just wait? The Puget Sound already has 91,700 acres of toxic "muds and sands" alone. 435 gallons of benzene, toluene, carbon, and iso-octanes should fit in very easily. Who is going to assess the damage caused by one of the largest seafood distributors in the US, Trident Seafoods, and when do they get to compensate the oceans for their toxic-streaming, over-fishing habits and negligence?

Petrol reserves are going back into the ocean! (Hence?) no net loss! Except to the marine life, that is.
