Rotting in Sludge rooftop in Queens

This article was posted by Alan Ket 2 years, 1 week, 2 days, 12 hours, 28 minutes ago.

Yesterday Bruz, Sin, Skinz, Noc167, and I completed a rooftop on the 7 line in Queens that is inspired by the oil spills that big oil companies have been responsible for. We decided to address this issue on this wall since it it so visible and we hope that people get the message. The continued pollution of our oceans and our lands at the hands of these corporations that reap billions in profits annually is reprehensible and criminal.

This month there was an oil spill in Nigeria thanks to Exxon Mobil (again).

It’s been 2 years since the BP/Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and the devastation is still evident in the death of sea life. http://news.mongabay.com/2012/0424-hance_deepwater_mutations.html

Today, our government is pushing for Arctic drilling which could have a devastating effect to that regions wildlife and people. To date, the technology does not exist to clean up a potential oil spill and the cleanup itself is damaging to the planet. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/03/090316101430.htm
