Natural oil seeps are polluting the Santa Barbara channel at “an astonishing rate.”
If we drilled the oil, it for sure would not end up toxifying the California coast.
Californians, or you, don’t need the oil, though, so we just let it seep; and blame “big oil” and a 1969 oil spill for the mess. Californians swim in the stuff, rather than drill it!
Remember, Al Gore and Obama say: energy is bad for you! Get used to it.
“The amount of oil seeping from the ocean floor since 1970 equals more than 31 times the amount of oil spilled in 1969,” he said.Over a 10-day period in 1969, an estimated 3 million gallons of crude oil spilled into the channel and onto the beaches of Santa Barbara County.
