    Shell Oil Spiews Out More than a Million Gallons of Oil Onto Nigerian Delta

    January 10, 2012:
    Last month ... the oil giant Royal Dutch Shell's operation caused from 1m to 2m gallons of oil to spill into the ocean off the coast of Nigeria, also as the result of an industrial accident. It was the worst spill in Nigeria in 13 years in a part of that country where the oil and gas industry has been despoiling the environment for more than 50 years, on a scale that dwarfs the Deepwater Horizon spill in the Gulf of Mexico by a wide margin. Shell claims it has completely cleaned up the mess, but villages counterclaim the oil has been washing up on their coastline. The world's media seem to be uninterested in checking the facts.

    Are the people who run Shell Oil white male rapists? If that's so, you certainly are privy to a bunch of information that I don't have.

    I don't think I want to know how you came by that knowledge.

    Well, certainly, to stupid people, I suppose that's how I would appear.
