The 'little' leak that began in the Alaskan arctic has now precipitated into the biggest crude oil spill in Alaska since Exxon-Valdez. Yep, came from a hole in a thirty year-old mal-maintenanced pipeline run by a subsidiary of BP (which, incidentally, just recently received accolades for its sustained commitment to find lasting solutions to climate change--nice PR guys). So far more than 910, 000 litres have been leaked into the ocean and the subsidiary has recently been fined $1.2 million. Considering that Exxon just stated profits in the billions, I can't but argue that this fine is simply a drop in a large bucket. One has to wonder where the hell are the incentives, or rather disincentives.
