Toxic Oil Spills Are Much More Common Than You May Think

The only oil spills that get any media coverage are the major ones that are pretty hard to ignore, or coverup. But did you know that just in the past 30 days, there have been 13 oil spills, amassing a total of 1,185,000 gallons of toxic oil? This is business as usual believe it or not – not just a fluke within the past month. It’s just an inevitable part of the oil industry and the practices they employ. Perhaps clean energy should start getting a bit more focus  than it’s currently getting!

This nifty infographic pretty much sums it up.
