Chevron Spills in Salt Lake City

Our corporate entities have been in a new rhythm as Chevron joins the pedestal with their Salt Lake City oil spill. A underground pipeline has leaked at least 400 to 500 barrels of oil into the Red Buttle Creek leaving the Canadian geese and ducks with a new brown glow. Spewing about 50 barrels per minute, this unique pipe flows to Salt Lake City from Colorado and feeds the city's oil and gas refineries. The birds where taken to Hogle Zoo, dead fish were already found in Liberty park, and oil has been spotted four miles down the Jordan River.

One would question that with the recent Deep Water Horizon disaster, that corporations would be investigating and monitoring their operating lines/wells. However, that would call for more money to pay wages to weekly employees or outside contractors. Week after week our nation seems to have a crisis - explosion at WW Massey coal mine, Deep Water Horizon, methane explosion in Texas, Marcellus Shale drilling, etc. If you believe that all of this is simply out of your control, then I would strongly urge you to get off your seat and change your attitude. Thousands are disgusted; yet many are organizing a coordinated march to Washington, D.C. The goal is to demand transformation on energy reform and request immediate change in the handling of the Deep Water Horizon event. Join us and Reclaim Our America!
