Gallery: ExxonMobil Oil Spill Ravages the Shores of the Yellowstone Riv...

Yet another oil spill has stricken the United States – this time in the Yellowstone River in Montana.  Gallons of thick crude oil have been emptying into the picturesque waterway since last Friday out of a ruptured pipeline. Instead of BP this time, ExxonMobil is to blame, although they say they remain perplexed as to what the cause of the leakage was. With this new development and the numerous spills before it, we have to wonder why there still isn’t more urgency for a non-oil future for the U.S.

    The OSEI Corporation has alerted the federal on scene coordinators with the Coast Guard and EPA for RRT VIII there is enough OSE II to remediate approximately 1,000,000 gallons of fuel or oil in their Dallas warehouse. OSE II was successfully tested by Exxon for the Valdez spill and was recently successfully tested by BP for the Gulf, where BP has requested the implementation of OSE II on the Gulf spill. OSE II was successfully used by the US EPA on a similar spill on the Osage Indian Reservation in Oklahoma, where a pipeline ruptured that crossed over the river. OSE II has successfully cleaned up over 16,000 spills since 1989, and can be used equally on fresh or salt water spills. OSE II was successfully demonstrated in Waveland Beach Mississippi on sensitive marsh grass, and OSE II cleaned up over a 5,000 gallon spill for Texaco on fresh water as well. OSE II is the non toxic first response clean up product that will quickly return the river banks to pre spill conditions.

    Oil spills are OKAY and even good for the environment if they are done by American Companies. But if BP is involved its gross negligence, environmental disaster.

    The urgency is there, just that there is no suitable replacement that solves our problems RIGHT NOW and without bankrupting the nation. Change takes time.
