Oil spill in Dalian, China

Five days ago, in the northeastern port city of Dalian, China, two oil pipelines exploded, sending flames hundreds of feet into the air and burning for over 15 hours, destroying several structures - the cause of the explosion is under investigation. The damaged pipes released thousands of gallons of oil, which flowed into the nearby harbor and the Yellow Sea. The total amount of oil spilled is still not clear, though China Central Television earlier reported an estimate of 1,500 tons (400,000 gallons), as compared to the estimated 94 - 184 million gallons in the BP oil spill off the Louisiana coast. The oil slick has now grown to at least 430 square kilometers (165 sq mi), forcing beaches and port facilities to close while government workers and local fishermen work to contain and clean up the spill. (29 photos total)

Firefighters walk near an oil pipeline blast site in Dalian, Liaoning province, China early on July 17, 2010. Firefighters later extinguished the fire that raged for more than 15 hours after two oil pipelines exploded in the port of Dalian, the Xinhua news agency said. (REUTERS/China Daily)

it should be noted here that that's what oil spill is supposed to look like on the surface of the ocean, without the chemical dispersant. horrifying...

This is getting just crazy. In our attempt to control our environment, the self-same environment is going to kick our butts. I'm genuinely starting to feel like as a species, we're hard-wired for self destruction, and worse, we'll take down all sorts of others with us.

Sad.

Yet another oil spill horror story, amidst the most environmentally worse one in human history...also to note that it was also a Chinese tanker that ran into the great barrier reef in Australia a few months back.....when will we get the HINT that we need to get OFF oil!? Now that China has passed the USA as the most energy hungry nation, this will only become worse and worse......what a sad, sad world we live in.

"For all the haters that spewed that crap for the BP spill, feel free to dump on the Chinese now"

BP could have prevented the largest spill ever with some small changes in the way they drilled but wanted to save a penny. They deserve every last "crap spewing" they get. Now they are filling us full of lies, raping us and not paying any taxes to boot. Yeah, it's a great situation. How can you possibly defend them?

I believe push has come to shove. We no longer should view clean energy options as options but we should make them a priority.
We have had environmental experts advising us for decades of the consequences of our choices and actions. It is time we listen to them and take action. This saddens me to see yet another area being destroyed by man's negligence. We need our environment, it is not disposable.

Jack (#10), was that supposed to be an elaborate comment? No one has said oil spills would only happen in the USA, and what you call "hate" is actually well-deserved criticism.

As you can read above, the cause for the explosion is under investigation.
The BP oil spill in the Gulf was (apparently) caused by 'negligence or misconduct' and was (definitely) followed by stonewalling, a spinning PR-machine and some politicians throwing only softballs at BP but didn't contribute anything to speed up clean up the spill.

Now there's another sad oil spill and all you do is finger pointing. You sound like somebody who always scamble when something in your country goes wrong or gets criticised, no matter how absurd you may look.

Let's just hope they manage to clean the mess up - very soon.

>这样视角的图片在中国媒体上是见不到滴 (trans. "These images are not shown in the Chinese media")

So this (some of it, anyway) is censored in China. In the US the censorship happens closer to the source with BP using the Coast Guard to prevent journalists from even getting such images. China's not so different.

Posted by Lawrence July 21, 10 02:40 PM

@6 (HD): I'm sure you're saying this to make note of how the oil is actually floating on top of the water making for easier and more complete cleanup - not how the water looks dirtier because it's not below the surface. Dispersants were a huge mistake.

@18 (fjord): What oil spill are you referring to that's 20 times worse than the BP spill? Certainly not this one. Looks like the estimate is at less than half of one percent of the total gallons spilled by BP.

@ HD:

The appearance of the oil here is different mostly because what spilled is refined oil, not the pure crude coming directly from the well in the case of the BP spill in the gulf.

"These things are necessary in the world we live in"

Why are they necessary? Why do we have to behave like we are the gods who knows and can control who can live and who not? Why do we have to control everything and destroy every piece of land and water on the planet?
This attitude is what's killing the ecosystem and in the end ourselves.

RE: FJORD #18

but the article states:

"China Central Television earlier reported an estimate of 1,500 (400,000 gallons), as compared to the estimated 94 - 184 million gallons in the BP oil spill off the Louisiana coast."

you do know that thousands are less than millions, right? Therefore BP is bigger.

Seeing numerous people working hard to fix the problem, then the Greenpeace "activist" looking it over reminds me of why I don't respect "activists" anymore. If you care, you're working to fix the problem, not just point it out and complain that other people aren't doing it. The "act" is with the hard working people of the community.

Just imagine how much dispersant must have been poured into the Gulf to prevent it looking like this. This is less than 1/4 of 1% than what has spilled into the Gulf. There needs to be an immediate investigation into how much dispersant was released and how much of that was after the EPA told BP to stop using that chemical dispersant.

This can hardly be compared to the BP oil spill in terms of volume of oil or it's effect on the surrounding environment. The BP spill has been spewing out oil for months, whereas this spill will be contained immediately by turning off the pipelines. Both are awful but let's not get ridiculous. Also, who is blaming America for the BP oil spill? Oil is not just a need of Americans but of all developed and developing nations in the world. BP is taking most of the blame for that tragedy as they should.

Terrible scenes, and frightening images of the fireman caught at the end, that must've been terrifying. But spectacular photography nevertheless.

However, even though human intervention is responsible for what has happened in Louisiana and Dalian, oil is merely a natural resource. As unfortunate as these situations are, the planet will find a way to cope with it. Even so, it is undoubtedly a catastrophe for the wildlife and peoples' livelihoods affected at this time. Best wishes to those affected.

To the comment about Greenpeace. If you think they are just taking pictures, and looking at things, I beg you to check out the Greenpeace website. I work for Greenpeace in Vancouver and I can personally tell you that every single person employed in our office is working tirelessly on issues like this. They are the people working hard in their communities. Right now for example, Greenpeace Canada is working to stop the proposed Enbridge Pipeline that would be built from Alberta to the B.C. coast, directly through the pristine Great Bear Rainforest. They are working so that a devastating spill like this one cannot happen here. And think about it, if people weren't out there Bearing Witness, which is what Greenpeace does, we might not have ever seen these shocking pictures, and then sadly we might not ever learn from our mistakes.

I hope you people who are bashing the world's dependence on oil all gave up driving years ago because although I agree that these oil spills are saddening, I don't think any of you have the right to make such reactive statements. I drive a car and I love it; I would hate to live life without it. I would hate to live life without air conditioning or cable TV or a gas stove. If I could go back in time I honestly wouldn't change a thing; not a single decision I have ever made. We know now that we need to make a change in the way we produce energy and hopefully we will succeed in putting carbon fuel behind us but the truth is that we may never find safe and equivalent energy sources.
One thing we can all agree on: these pictures are incredible.
We should all prey for that man covered in oil because even if he survived he is going to have a miserable time getting that tar out of his hair.

Comment # 61. Dear Mr. Lorne Johnson of Canada. If you drive a car, you and I are partly responsible for what is happening with these oil disasters. You know and I know that if we have a car, we need oil for fuel. We need gasoline to power our cars so we can get to work to earn the money to give it back to the oil companies.
Check around your house, most of the things you take for granted has some materials made from Petroleum. Take for example you TV . Bet you didn't know the TV case is made from Petroleum by-products.

So unless you somehow invented a car engine that runs on water, then you just have to live with the fact that these sort of things will happen occasionally.
Granted it's an awful environmental disaster but at least it's not a giant asteroid slamming into the planet and really make a mess of the things.

I've been protesting and attending rallies againts these or that for a better part of 30 years and do you know what I found out, It doesn't really make that much of a difference.

"Accept the things I cannot change, have courage to change the things I can and have the wisdom to know the difference"--- some really well adjusted person

这种图片确实在中国媒体上是看不到的,特别是对火灾现场的描写,在中国媒体上,只能从正面突出,比如这一次救人牺牲了,那么,除了这一个人,其他的事情报道了吗?没有这些大图,国内的谁知道严重成什么样?

I read a couple of Chinese news about Dalian oil spill. The Chinese news is quite open. There is some update information. The soldier who fell into the water died unfortunately and he planed to take wedding pictures on that day..... 3,00 tons of 1,500 tons are cleaned by Jul 20th.

There is WRONG information HERE. The oil slick has now grown to at least 43 (instead of 430) square kilometer. Come on, it's 10 times difference..... Please check the information before it's released.

I can provide some missed background information, since it is my hometown. The explosion happened in the industrial port. so there are not wild animals around, as I saw someone above mentioned it. It's away from wild animal areas. It's really lucky! Most beaches are polluted somehow and under cleaning now. Since Dalian is a famous tourist city, this will be a hit. The dangerous part is that the exploded oil contain was next to others. I can't imagine how much damage would be made when several containers are caught fire. I hope the cleaning work is going well.

Have you noticed that, when there is a large-scale disaster in China, it's very likely that some soldiers will die in the relieving operation. This can't be a coincidence, I'm suspecting that the authority is staging these deaths, to buy sympathy with their own peoples' blood.

to the brave anonymous Einstein on comment #41. You think that's it? Just take a shovel and clean up will sort everything out? Whereas it is a huge job to deal with the spill, you need people to see at the big picture and connect the dots. That activist was certainly not just walking by.

And if nobody took pictures but only shovels, how would you have known about the spills and brought your stupid comment to light?

by the way, did you take a shovel yourself or do anything remotely in favor of the environment? I can imagine you as a fat pig in front of his telly yelling and having an "expert" opinion on everything...

my parents are living in Dalian,and it was such a beautiful coastal city.
claiming to have the longest coastline of China.

On the day of the accident,i called back home from Beijing, where i am living, and my parents told me the air was filled with choking smoke and black particles could be seen floating inthe air, as the result of the explosion and the wind was blowing those hazardous cloud over to the downtown area( the explosion site was over 100 kms from the downtown area.

i was so worried about the city, and to my little comfort, i could see the photos on the domestic websites so i could track the incident. fewer cover ups this time, at least everyone knows the seriousness of the incident, and everyone knows it would take quite long time before the oil slick could be possibly cleaned. i decided not to have any seafood this year.....

the oil spills in both US and Dalian are tragedy, and i really can't say it would not happen again , as long as we keep the way of living like this.
all i can do is pray and nothing else.

1st : sorry for my english.

I am not chinese, but i am disgusted to see that people here are using this event to fight against Chinese people and government. Like most of the world do with the BP platform, and fight against USA oil programs. We are all concerned, we use oil, and unfortunally, here we can see here that many people dont want to reduce their consumption...

This is again a huge damage for nature and ecosystems... and it doesnt only mean "oohhh those poors animals".. It means one more step in humanity's death... we are animals, killing all what makes us alive on earth ... What occurs in the seas is not only what you can see from the shore, from your little human point of view.

In some comments i read that some are proud to use cars and oil in their products and couldnt live without... Nice, I hope they dont have kids, because if we dont reduce now, kids or theit kids will have less and less freedom and health. Thats scandalous to read "We cant change this"... If we dont want oil to be produced and sold, just dont buy it ... We could change this, imagine all the money spent in rescuing and fixing oil spills since years used for research programs on "clean" engines ... We already have solutions, but thats certainly too much expensive... But what "expensive" means ???

And for those saying that's the situation is not so serious, i just suggest to them to go live there a few monthes, go fishing, play with their kids on the beach, eat see food, smell the fresh air ...

And for those writing "Life's short, don't worry, be happy!"... I would say, you'll be very happy, acting as we act actually will make our lifes shorter, so that will be more hapiness because we'll have to live a more intense way, and why not, buying more, and consuming more... " don't worry, be happy!" is a nice way to say "i am not involved in all this".

But finally, may be it's the best thing that can occur : the faster we'll die, the faster the planet will be better...

But sometimes I have to ride in cars, trucks, buses, etc.. so I don't imagine that I have any moral high ground to stand on, none of us do. I will pray for the people in Dalian as I pray for the peolple in the Gulf but mostly I will pray for the innocent birds and other wildlife that are hurt by our greed and stupidity.

what a depressing attitude...you hate the idea of life without air-con or a car? i.e. you're happy to screw future generations so you can have a marginally easier life..didn't you learn how to share at primary school? Eventually either we leave oil, or it leaves us. I guess in the case of the former your options will be clear.

Just hoping and "praying" for a solution will achieve nothing - this is our collective mess and we must solve. Denmark gets 20% of it's grid electricity through wind power. Not a bad start.

#132: the two oil spills are very different. In the US you have an underwater well at extreme depths which is very hard to close. This one in China will be cleaned up a lot easier and faster because it's "only" a pipe that blew (or AFAICT anyway).

You can't really fault the US administration for their handling of the US spill (the sad truth is that the only parties with the expertise to actually close it are the oil companies) but you can criticise them (or the previous them) for having some seriously lax safety standards around drilling (including not mandating a relief well from the start). Something tells me though that with China's environmental and safety record, there'll be plenty finger pointing to go around there too.

There's no reason to believe there'd be a difference in efficiency cleaning up the spill. Both countries have a lot of resources at their disposal, after all. But you can't honestly expect to compare the events to begin with, as they're so different in scope.

BTW in pic nr 4, is that water they're trying to put an oil fire out with?

The oil in the pipeline is probably refined, while that in the gulf was flowing directly out of the ground via a well. Light Louisiana crude oil verses heavier looking crude oil, pictured.

Oil is used to make plastic which is in carpet, paint, cosmetics, fabric etc. Everything is touched by plastic. Buy a cotton shirt ....... made on a machine coated with paint, plastic parts to make it run, run by electricity brought in with a plastic coated wire. We live on it, in it, drink tiny bits of it, wear it, make a living using it, even breathe particles of it. Landfills are flowing over with it, tons and tons of it. The oceans have floating masses of plastic particles. Its pitiful, everyone already knows this. MEH !! The world is already a sad place, but this is all terrible, we could all be more compassionate.

It's so simple: We have to STOP BURNING THINGS to produce energy. We now have all the technology to produce energy cleanly, environmentally sustainably, (and in the long run, practically free), but ALL of us have to do our part to change our practice. The argument of it being "expensive" and "hurting the economy" doesn't fly anymore because the expense and consequence of not switching will be many orders of magnitude more expensive and catastrophic.

These info and pic are NOT blocked in China.

BUT, the China gov acts differently from US gov.

In US, we see hearings, debates and lots of craps. People are blaming each other. No real works. Solution always comes late.

In China, the gov deliberately neglects her responsibility of the disaster (and keeps reassuring the citizen everything's okay), but instead spends tons of money to solve it asap.

IMHO, I don't know which way is better.

i think everyone can agree that using oil makes everyone happy but that oil spills are a very bad thing, especially when they affect life.

it doesn't matter if there's oil in the water if some fishes or birds or human people aren't using it right? it's not like water is alive. still though, we have to be mindful that oil spills shouldn't happen.

we need to raise awareness about this. thanks boston big pic for doing your part. by commenting, i'm doing mine.

For those people who are over critical of China's "censorship" of this disaster, my question is: What exactly will you do if/when you find out about it? Are you going to China to help clean up the mess. Did you go to the Gulf coast to help clean up the oil disaster there? Did you invent some material that could make the oil spill go away? Are you organizing funds to help rescue affected animals?
Make comments regarding the quality of the pictures not who/what/when/how things happened. Besides, its not as if you can do something major to help out anyway.
Compare what China has done to their country since the inception of free market economy to that of countries in Africa, South America, Middle East and you be be astonish at the pace of progress they have manage to do. It's not easy leading a country of 1,330,141,295 to keep pace with progress while at the same time uplift people out of poverty. Sure there are dark chapters in China's history but pretty much every country has some dark chapters.
It will be just a matter of time before China becomes the world's policeman. Maybe those evil terrorist think twice before doing anything nasty. They'll have a large potion of the current 7,555,000 (active and reserve) soldiers hunting them down. Maybe its about time for USA to hand over that responsibility after all its also time for the USA to focus on its infrastructure and people. I'm just saying, it's way past due Mr. President.

When it comes to the "dictatorship"or"censorship"of Chinese government, it's rather rare to see someone from the US to analyze it full of striking thoughts. Nowadays in China, the majority of people tend to believe that during the transition of the society, the government needs to apply "power politics" due to the enormous population, however, when the country has developed into a stronger nation, it will be the time for democracy. I myself can only hope to see that day coming.

My condolence to the victims and people there.

咱们各国人自己都清楚,每个国家都有其不合理的地方,各不相同而已,毕竟权力是在少数人手中,不清楚的那是自己笨,清楚不承认的是阿Q(参考鲁迅先生的文选)。美国就完全民主??最没有说话权力的就是自以为是的美国,打着和平的旗号四处掠夺,为了怕别的国家发展而动用各种手段压制,这些自己就看不到?如果有自知,那么麻烦保持沉默。日本好?军权国家,麻痹自己百姓,最终目的就是让百姓成军人去战斗,我不信每个日本人生下来就爱战争和死亡!英国人就一定绅士??不要脸的殖民行为都是‘绅士’干的,用个真丝手绢擦嘴就是绅士?能擦掉别人沾在你嘴边的血迹吗?现在人类社会还没有真正的民主,集权化是不争的事实,而我们每一个地球人现在都无力一瞬间改变!外国朋友有国家荣誉感我替你自豪,但是不要没有研究就随意诋毁或者不负责任的抨击别人的国家,那只能证明你无知,我们国家的毛主席早就说过:没有调查就没有发言权!你的所知不也就是自己国家的媒体公布的吗?你真的不知道政治是种什么东西吗?未免可笑了。至于那些‘愤慨’的国人,不外乎那么几种,一是会中文的‘有心人’,都懂,不评论了。二是嫌贫爱富,盲目崇洋媚外的一些‘同胞’,麻烦去改下国籍,之后屏蔽掉中国吧。让我们这些明知道中国有很多不足和缺陷、和外国确实有很大差距的却仍然为中国打拼,力图让祖国迎头赶上的中国人继续做一个中国人该做的事。原因很单纯,我们在守卫且爱护这祖祖辈辈生活、耕耘、奋斗并且已经守卫了几千年的国家,我们血管里流的都是同一种血,我们为其自豪!哪个国家都有过其脆弱和发展的时候,如果这个时候自己的人民不思进取却只会唧唧歪歪,那这个国家根本没有前途,这种人就是改了国籍,也是别国的分母,试想,自己的祖国尚且嫌弃,并不为之发展而努力,那么就算改了国籍,那个国家一旦有什么灾难,这种人会挺身而出??相信外国朋友也深知这点,会拿这种人当同胞?告诉你,失去了自己的祖国,你什么都不是!连丧家之犬都不是。不过就算无知者无罪吧,这种人哪个国家都有,不须理会。还有一种是为国而忧、怒其不争的人写的一些气话,有这个心很好,将其转化为动力吧,并非外国的月亮就更圆,只是因为我们并没有深入的在外国生活很久去看月亮而已。这个道理就像,喜欢了一个美女并追求,现在她什么都是好的,而且你也未必了解她的缺点。结婚生子过日子,你才切身体会她也是凡人,也是放屁唠叨碰到打折没命的主儿,试问你会因为了解她而嫌弃她?我不是愤青,只是一个为自己是中国人而自豪的人;我庆幸自己是中国人,5000年的传承,有很多糟粕,却更有取之不尽的精华,我不因其缺点而背弃她,也不因其辉煌而炫耀她,只是在这个诺大的历史进程中做一些于大象微乎其微于小我却干系莫大的想做的事,在一个中国人的前提下。中国政府有很多不足,但是却发展极快,这么庞大的机构,转身是需要时间的,绝对不是普通人茶余饭后酒足饭饱唯我独尊指点江山的几句片面的见解所能解决的,这个10多亿的人口,不是主席一道令就能马上见成效的,这个道理其实不难理解。我也不是事不关己在这里高谈阔论,我所经营从事的是一个传统密集劳动型外贸加工企业,这几年政府在产业结构调整、环保和社保方面的政策已经让我们举步为艰,但我却依然支持这届政府,于小我,损失惨重;于中国,前途无限!

当然这件事上真理部并没有完全采用“一律新华社通稿,不置顶,不设专题,不跟贴”的封锁策略,但退一步说,不说封锁,官媒在报道这一新闻时得舆论导向不中立是肯定的。首先就是类似王家岭矿难,把灭火说成是救灾奇迹,之后将宣传重点放在牺牲战士的英雄举动上而非环境污染。把坏事说成好事,是中国特色社会主义传播学一大武器,既方便糊弄屁民,又方便糊弄自己。在这荒诞的国度,实践检验不出真理。

I am disgusted and disapointed that so much of a natural resource is going into creating waste. This is 'ENERGY' going down the drain.

I am dissapointed that till today no one looks to oil as a resource akin to blood that runs through a human body.

Imagine so much blood going out of circulation out of a human body. Yes new blood will be born. But if you continue to drain blood again and again from the human body how will the human body survive.

Now, imagine if we were to treat mother earth as a human body. For the earth to function it needs oil in its body to continue to survive.
If we humans continue to draw oil from earths body; one day it will give way; dry up and die.

If the earth dies so will all LIVING beings who live on it.

The solution for scientists is to think of ways to give ideas of how to run cars electricity etc etc without OIL.

Once a solution is found EARTH will breath again.

At the moment the mercinary OIL LOBBY is out to dry the earth of its BLOOD. STOP THIS BLOODY COUP.

It's a monster, far greater than the U.S. I guess they too will learn the hard way once everything natural and necessary is completely destroyed. There fear of never starving has led them to industry, and ain't it a karmalistic bitch that industry will lead them right back to starving. I hope not...

Sorry mate, that's a really bad analogy. I think "Mother" earth will survive even if all the oil is pumped out of her. A better analogy for "Blood" would be "Water". Water is the blood of all living things, I guess you forgot elementary science. Try not drinking water for 4 days and see if you are still ok by the 5th.

No intentions at attacking China with words but China is one of the greatest polluters of the world now be it in air, land and water. The industrialization of China over the last decades has created more trash, polluted streams and rivers in their country. Not to mention that pollution from China flows out into the open seas in terms of micro plastic particles that end up in the China Sea and Pacific Ocean. Industrial emissions has increased and are now affecting air quality in adjoining countries. Environmental protection is at the bottom of Chna's industrialization programs.

To Comment #138 - Your view could also be limited as you're more concerned about emissions. The use of fossil fuels (or oil drilled from the ground) is not limited to fuel that is burned for automobiles, ships, trains, factories, and power plants. This does not justify the oil tragedy in Dalian, US Gulf of Mexico or in Alaska.

Crude oil spilled is just the basic material. Out of it, when refined and separated & processed , comes all sorts of fuel oil, gases and chemicals such as carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, sulfur, are some key elements for both industrial and medical purpose. One of its key byproducts is polymers (through the process of polymerization) used to make plastics including the mouse, keyboard, computer screen, monitor you are using now. It's used for bottles of softdrinks, shampoo, cooking oil, CD cases, cellphones, watches, toys, bra rings, laptops. Petroleum byproducts include shampoo, cosmetics, creams, medicine, paint, fertilizers, rubber gloves, synthetic polymers such as synthetic rubber, Bakelite, neoprene, nylon, PVC, polystyrene, polyethylene, polypropylene, polyacrylonitrile, PVB, silicone, and many more. Even Teflon (or PTFE) on your frying pan is a petroleum byproduct. List goes on. Without these would we better off.

True we should reduce emissions, look for alternative energy and we are doing that now in the engineering/science field by harnessing wind, and solar power, and processing ethanol. However, there is one substance that reduces emissions comparatively still associated with petroleum-natural gas. It's on top of oil in gas form. It's used on Hydrid cars and to run power generating and industrial plants. At the moment we are very dependent on oil for existence. Until man comes up with a chemical which contains the hydrocarbons which respond to processes as polymerization to create strong and solid materials man is dependent on petroleum for existence. Without polymers we would have to resort to metal and wood again as in the 19th century. Would anyone want that? I don't think even the so-called environmentalists would want that.

The key to a greener earth is with each individual. Also, the key to avoiding disasters is wise, safe and economic management of natural resources-whether it's oil, wood, minerals, animals for food, plants. Most often times shortcuts and human error contribute to tragedies like this. Each of us can contribute to a greener earth in simple ways anywhere. Reduce that consumer mentality to reduce shopping which in turn reduces trash. Recycle. Walk or bike. Use energy efficient equipment from airconditioners, heating furnace, lighting, windows, etc. Tip: Energy efficient lights, based on my experiment at home, cuts electricity by 30-40%. I still see a lot of people, just because of the low cost of regular bulbs or being able to pay their electric bills, still using the old standard bulbs.

@ 233. If you even read history, the United States and Most of the European countries did the same thing during the industrial revolution. They were the major polluters starting mid 19th century on to the 20th. But no one seems to castigate those country for the destruction of the environment.
Progress, not matter how advance your technology is, will always be destruction of the environment. It's inevitable and unavoidable especially in developing countries. Look at the amount of deforestation happening in South America. People should be alarm by that. But Mother Nature has a way of balancing everything. She's been doing it for millions of years. Sooner or later she'll let the pitiful humans living on the surface to stop their selfish ways and start taking better care of the planet. We only have one and when its gone, its gone.

What we really need is more development of oil spill clean ups. American oil companies promised that they would develop more effective strategies after the Valdez spill years ago. They failed to do so. They failed to provide adequate health care to their OWN EMPLOYEES after they attempted to clean up the oil spills then. Now we see that oil companies are still practicing dangerous business. They fail to invest in the clean up technologies and strategies that they promised us and the US government is STILL content with allowing promises for increased protection against these tragedies go unpunished. We MUST hold oil companies to the promises they make to the public. We MUST ensure that they are willing to invest a small portion of their enormous profits into clean up technologies. and the public has to become more informed and aware of how shortcuts taken by oil companies are resulting in misery for those unwillingly affected by oil spills. These are common much more common than the public or media is willing to believe and that naivety is preventing the world from reaching a health balance between oil consumption, human rights, and the environment.

It's also not unreasonable to at least suspect China of misinforming the world about this issue. However, it might not be a direct result of censorship as many suspect. We should recognize that the bureaucracy of China resulted in a crucial misrepresentation of fish populations in the World not too many years ago. Chinese officials were willing to fake reports to their higher ups in order to make things look good in their districts in the hopes of favorable rewards. Big numbers mean money. I would argue that while we are watching over this issue (as we very well should be) we should be willing to accept underestimations in the damages sustained to the area by the Chinese who are ashamed that this happened under their watch.

A tragedy and I really admire the efforts made by so many valiant and courageous Chinese to clean up the mess and try and prevent it happening again. But what is the underlying cause - supply and demand. The supply comes from the limited resources of our wonderful and beautiful planet and the demand comes from our ever increasing population. Long term there is only one real solution - reduce the demand - reduce world population to manageable static levels. We have a choice to actively control our world population or to allow natural and man- made disaters achieve the balance for us. Unfortunately the "Tragedy of the Commons" applies and all of us seek an ever larger slice of the cake of our earths limited resources. Yet I believe there is hope for the human race.

To 同胞们:
关注big picture 很久了,从来都是顺利登陆的,根本没有被屏蔽过啊~~包括去年六月的那个专题,还有新疆75的那个专题。
大连的这次爆炸事故吧,只能说我们的媒体肯定是没有封锁消息,现在想要愤怒所这种消息很难,所以那种选择真的很愚蠢。而且这些图片在国内都能看到,大部分我都见过。
电视这种媒体也给了我认为还算充分的报道,但没有那种大肆渲染,可能还没有墨西哥湾的那个出现的频率高。这也是可以理解的。

as long as we continue demanding these vast quantities of oil through our daily "needs",

everytime bigger and more deadly,
like our demand in material needs.

we are all to blame.

Every thing is relative! Can you imagine how many fish and life were killed in that water in this spill and the others! Humans keep killing species off in desasters like this and others, we might as well say good bye! Our beautiful earth is slowly being destroyed by greedy big daddy in all of his sickening greedy ways. I fear for my children and Grand children. We MUST put more safety specifications in place to avoid any more of this, our precious earth can only take so much. So you greedy sucks! Back off a little because the working stiff's will only take so much also. Start taking better care of mother earth.

In US, we see hearings, debates and lots of craps. People are blaming each other. No real works. Solution always comes late.
In China, the gov deliberately neglects her responsibility of the disaster (and keeps reassuring the citizen everything's okay), but instead spends tons of money to solve it asap.

Anyway our gov reacts to such accidents or disasters immediately, which is the most important.

SHAME ON YOU BOSTON.COM

I'm sorry but these images are not in the correct order. They make you believe the man was rescued when in fact he died. There are 3 people in the water. The final images are of the two men that tried to save the first but failed. The hand in image 25 is the firefighter after he sank below the water and doesn't surface. Shame on Boston.com for disgracing the life of the fallen fire fighter.

The entire sequence of images can be found here:

It is really sad that this man Zhang Liang died ,let us hope that he did not die in vain ,that we can all learn something from this disaster. My prayers and thoughts go to his family and friends. Our dependancy on oil can not last,nothing does.Thankyou for the firefighters,workers and peoples liberation army who risk their lives to save others. China is a wonderful place,the people make it so. I have spent some time in Dalian ,it is a beautiful city with such friendly people.
I love the way the chinese people work together,the rest of the world should learn from this !! I hope the spill will be cleaned quickly and steps are taken to prevent it from happening again.

Wake up, it's not about which country is "better" or worse. The ideology of eternal (technological) progress is ubiquitous and with it the blind faith in the reliability of our "achievements". Is it accidental that the green movement grew strong after Chernobyl? Is it accidental that at the moment everyone in the US is talking about clean energy? We are blind until we fall. There's no preventing oil spills or "incidents" in nuclear plants, as such things will always happen. The thing is, they are only a side effect. I'm excited to see what will happen in 20-30 years when the oil and gas reserves are drawing near the end. Nuclear power plants everywhere? Good Night.

作為中國人我想說:
雖我國力尚無達到所向披靡,國民之福利尚不如他國之甜美,但較之百餘年來,卻是最穩定與強盛之時。國民在外,可抬頭揚天步行於他國街道,洋人不再如以往以中華之人而抱以諷刺與鄙疑,此況百餘年來,何時有之????

吾輩更不應忘記,我新中國尚立國60餘年,現代化全面發展僅30年。其它現代化強國不僅立國早於我,現代化發展更前於我3百餘年。更曾以我積貧積弱之時,侵入我國,掠我財富無以計數作其發展之資本。

何時我國民可少信謠言,懂於分辨,深明國家統一之大義。拋卻自賤自大之心理,理解黨與國家之一體性,國家發展前進之客觀性,那時,我中國才真能算的上,強國!

after reading every blog, thank you #236 for the most concrete reality check assuming all was accurately spoken...very informative w/o emotions. Yes everyone should reconsider how to use less petroleum based products, and yes it was an accident, yet may oil companies be more thorough to use safer operations/engineering and safer emergency training & practices, and invest as much in disaster prevention before production to be more prepared/in control of disaster in case the such a tragedy takes place again. The photos display a major unfortunate event with harm to heroic people and earth. We can assume they are doing their best to clean up and learn from their mistakes. Let's pray for China. Use less, purchase less, purchase local and locally made, live and spend within your means, recycle and live simple, and let old school quality supplies and new technology for green living, and compassion for others reign.

~Basic Nature~

It is the nature of water to be clear and transparent:
It is mud and sand that makes it turbid.
But when it is turbid,
Has its clear nature gone out of existence?
When it does not move for a long time,
The mud and sand sink to the bottom of themselves,
And its clear, bright nature mirrors Heaven and Earth:
This is not something that comes from the outside.
So when it is turbid, its basic nature is not lost,
And when it returns to its former state,
Its nature is not produced again.
The nature of man is like that of water.

It's heartbreaking to me here in America to know that this kind of suffering is behind the stuffed shelves, while the essentials of clean air and water and life are becoming ever scarcer for more people. I'm staying out of my car as much as I am able. There's blood in its gas tank.

When we make and buy things cheap, plastic, and disposable, we make life somewhere in the world cheap, plastic, disposable. It comes around eventually. I don't want a lifestyle that exacts that kind of price, not even behind my back, not even on the other side of the world from some store's shelves.

It's painful that this has come out in China on such a huge scale. All of us are going to need to learn how to repair this planet we're destroying so thoroughly.

It is tasteless to make political statements as I read here. Like it or not, petroleum is our major energy source for civilization. It was yesterday, it is today, and it will be tomorrow. There is no point in ranting about how we need a different form of energy. Of course we do, but it won't come tomorrow, or next week, or next year. Meanwhile, our cars and machinery runs on oil, so we must tap it. That tragic oil spills occur on RARE occasion (and they ARE rare!), is the price we pay for living in civilization instead of hunkered over a campfire fueled by camel dung. I hope the Chinese people are more understand of all this, and can rebuild this refinery to be even safer and dependable. Meanwhile, environmentalists, until you have an alternative solution in your hand, don't criticize others for not coming up with one on your demand. Get into your laboratories and start working on a solution, not merely contributing noise pollution.

Hi Don, Thank you for sending me the " oil spill in Dalian". I have glanced over the pictures, but somehow I was more interested in comments in Chinese to those pictures of the disaster. Some of these comments have become political and sickening. I have grown up in Taiwan under one of the worst Chinese dictators/tyrants - Chang Kai-sek and his gang, which exposed all the bad aspects of Chinese culture, and the worst is politics/environments. All these forced me into losing interest in modern China. Why? Let me translated one of Chinese postings therein on September 3, which responds to a Tawanese rather mild comments:

Let recapture Taiwan, keep the island but not the people (which means kill all islanders ?)
Let recapture Taiwan, keep the island but not the people
Taiwan cannot become a nation, forever. If one day Taiwan becomes independent or occupied by the US/Japan, I will contribute every penny of mine to bomb out and sink in Taiwan.

How sad so few people have concentrated on the real evil evidenced in these photographs. The oil is certainly horrible enough, proof industry is out of control, that any integrity with regard to safety precautions has been sacrificed to odds and actuarial tables.

It's not cost-effective to guard against every disaster, when disasters occur too seldome to have a significant effect on inflated revenues.

But the greater evil is seeing brave individuals sent to deal with a deadly disaster without any armor to protect them. These men should have been wearing suits capable of keeping toxins and heavy metals from seeping into their bloodstreams...hoods or helmets to prevent them drowning in oil, delivering sufficient oxygen to allow them to breath untainted air. They should have had at least the most basic of gear to keep them healthy or—at a bare minimum—alive.

Why the hell were they out there in what appears to be nothing but camouflage? With seemingly no support, no precautions, vulnerable to fumes and sludge and exhaustion...drowning for want of even minimal protective gear?

Most nations have, and attempt to enforce, laws to protect workers from exposure to toxic substances and hazardous environments.

But to Chinese industry's crime of grossly negligent pollution, let us add the greater crime of premeditated murder, pesrpetrated by corporate and government "leaders" who abandoned their command...and left troops to drown, undefended and unsupported.

Chinese companies have shown repeatedly in the past few years they are unconcerned with preventing harm to any living being, whether human or animal.

How many pets, infants, children, adults....soldiers, policemen, firemen, emergency workers...dissidents, those who want the right of free speech....how many have to die before China or anyone else cares enough to stop it? How long before we end the insanity of granting "Most Favored" status to a regime every bit as tyrannical and punitive as any Middle Eastern country with whom we have chosen to wage war?

Is fruit juice on every American table really worth so many lives?
