Cairn Energy's Oil Spill Response Plan "Lot Of Spin," Says Greenpeace

On Monday, disaster plans by Cairn Energy were released by the Greenland government that tout the ability to solve spills at speeds up to 10,000 barrels per day.

China's Secret Spill: What Happened At Bohai Bay?

In June, at least 330 square miles of China's Bohai Bay were covered with oil due to leaks from an offshore drilling rig. However, sources claim the water wasn't the only thing covered with something crude.

'Japan Is No Chernobyl': Comparing Two Level-7 Nuclear Disasters

Brazil: Chevron Gave "False Information" On Oil Spill

Amounting To Nothing: What Quantity Reports By The U.S. Government And BP Really Say

In the yearlong battle to ascertain the amount spilled during the Deepwater Horizon disaster, reports from the U.S. Government and BP continue to conflict, raising questions rather than answers regarding what was spilled in 2010.
