OK, it’s not a “hockey stick,” so the Left will ignore it — but the graph above illustrates the relative “quantities of oil spilled” during tanker accidents “between 1970 to 2009.”
Kate McMillan (who sourced this graph) writes:
The best estimate I can come up with suggests the current spill is around 700 tonnes a day (based on the current official 5000 barrels/day estimate)
Something to keep in mind while the evening news runs non-stop end-of-the-universe B-roll of oil-covered pelicans, rattles its dusty old “Exxon Valdez” talismans, and blames the spill on Bush.
