    What on earth do they mean at the end when they say "The next major oil spill"? They should be talking about how to ensure we have no more oil spills, there have already been three terrible ones this year, the Coral Reef, Gulf of Mexico and most recently China. This is surely a sign we need to get away from the use of oil )and other fossil fuels), which only harm the environment and will eventually run out anyway. The world needs to look very seriously at clean and alternative energy sources for which we have the technology nowadays. OH...of course I'm being naive and forgetting the mega-corporations monetary interests behind us all still using oil...
