13 percent of the spilled oil went down to the sea floor – that’s something like 1,430,000 gallons. 220,000 gallons of the oil went onto the beaches, and according to NOAA, a great deal of that oil is still there, leaching out into the waters of Prince William Sound to this day.
A spill estimated to be between 10 and 20 tons of crude oil has taken place at an oil rig near the Shetland Islands. Spill, baby, spill!
If Sarah Palin is right, and the oil that’s in the ground was placed there as a blessing by God, God only blessed the United States with 3 percent of the oil it needs. That’s a 97 percent blessing deficit for the USA!
