    Default Here's another 2200 tons of oil dumped into the water

    Russian oil tanker breaks in two

    MOSCOW, Russia (AP) -- A Russian oil tanker broke in two in a storm in the Black Sea Sunday, spilling some 2,200 tons of fuel oil into the Kerch Strait and posing a serious environmental problem, officials said.

    The tanker, Volganeft-139, broke about three miles from the shore.

    "This problem will take several years to solve," Oleg Mitvol, head of the state environmental safety watchdog, Rosprorodnadzor, said on Vesti 24 television.

    He said that the gale was preventing emergency workers from quickly collecting the spilled oil from the surface.

    Maxim Stepanenko, a regional prosecutor, said that an apparent reason for the spill was the flimsy design of the tanker, which was not built to withstand a fierce storm. Such tankers were designed during the Soviet times to carry oil on rivers.

    Another Russian ship carrying more than 2,000 tons of sulfur also sank in the Kerch strait Sunday. Mitvol said that while the cargo did not present an environmental threat, the ship's tanks were full of oil which could spill.

    I keep waiting for someone to come up with a viable alternative. Until then, we have to live with this type of problem, unless people want to bike it and seriously cut back on all the petroleum products we use daily and take for granted(A couple of years ago, National Geographic did an article where they went to the average house and took out all the petroleum based products. Half the stuff from the house was on the front lawn, it was amazing to me and I kind of felt bad that I did not know how much of our lives are dependent on this product).

    this kinda news just makes me sick, but like the above post says until an alternative source is found, i still say kramer's idea on seinfeld is the best
    I used to wonder why he was grinning all the time(Michael Ian Black talkin about EVH on VH1 I love the 80's) but then i realized the reason he's grinning is because he's Eddie F*#king Van Halen
