‘It Will Never Be The Same’: North Dakota’s 3.5 Million-Litre Oil Spill One Year Later

ClimateProgress
One year ago, when more than 20,000 barrels (3,528,000 Litre) of crude oil spilled from a pipeline and soaked a wheat field in Tioga, North Dakota, the public almost never knew about it. After the spill was discovered by a lone farmer, it was not reported for nearly two weeks, and only after reporters from the The Associated Press asked about it specifically. Details here.

This orgy of oil production is coming from the Bakken field, the same one that reaches into southwestern Manitoba. But, of course, no such spill would ever occur in this province! Heaven forbid! (Sarcasm intended.)
