Our friends at Act Green are covering an enormous oil spill off the coast of Australia. The amount of oil spill covers an area the size of Delaware, and threatens a diverse marine ecosystem and an endangered reef.
And, before anyone makes a false claim of outdated technology, the rig that spilled the oil was was built in 2007.
Depressed? Maybe this classic send-up of Big Oil's attempts to defendspills will cheer you up.
Last year Big Oil and other corporate polluters spent a record $168 million lobbying Congress. They’ve launched an unprecedented smear campaign to defeat comprehensive climate legislation and protect their profits.

We need your help now more than ever to continue building on the important progress we’ve made towards creating a cleaner, more sustainable future.
