Big F-ing Oil Spill in Guimaras
Earlier this month (August 11) there was a huge oil spill in Guimaras which is south of Luzon. I guess it is incorrect to state was as the tanker is still at the bottom of the ocean and is leaking oil as we speak. Randomly, while there appears to be local government response, the oil company (Petron) is denying any liability for the spill and is offering a half-assed response.
As luck would have it, this island is a marine reserve as well as an up and coming tourist destination so this has desimated them. http://www.projectsunrise.org/ is the local government link. Sucks ass.
