Bikinis Oil Up For Protest Against Timor Sea Oil Spill

What’s it going to take for the world to pay attention to the massive oil spill that has been going on for two and a half months between Australia and Indonesia in the Timor Sea? A group of pretty women wearing bikinis, smearing their bodies with crude oil? Okay, if that’s what it takes, the Wilderness Society of Australia is willing to do it. The group organized exactly that sort of protest in Perth yesterday, in order to get the attention the issue deserves.

It has also now been revealed that yet another fossil fuel leak, this one of natural gas, has been taking place on another offshore drilling rig just 50 nautical miles away from the Montara rig which has been the source of the major oil spill. The gas leak has been going on for about seven weeks, without the public being informed.

A spokesman from the company that runs the second rig says that people ought not to worry, because most spills of this sort are not reported to the public at all. That’s supposed to be reassuring?

    ===================================

    I think we would be horrified if we found out all that is being kept from the public. Nothing suprises me anymore. Heck, I bet stuff like this happens all of the time. I also wouldnt be suprised if there is a human clone in a lab somewhere. We now about 50% of what happens in my opinion
