China Oil Spill

Looks like another massive toxic leak polluting China’s rivers has cut loose from an oil pipeline in Shanghai… like the previous benzine leak into Heilongjiang in northern China’s Songhua River in 2005…

Xinhua, the official state news agency, said the leak was caused by construction work and that a crew of 700 people was struggling to contain the damage from what Shaanxi officials said was about 150,000 liters, or about 40,000 gallons, of diesel oil. […] The oil pipeline, which transports oil from northwest China to central parts of the country, was damaged and released oil into the Chisui River and Wei River, a tributary of the Yellow River, according to Xinhua.[link]
