I can't believe anyone would Yellowstone, a nature preserve, is going to suffer an oil spill. That's terrible! People are so stupid.

Yup, I agree. I can't believe that we are still using this gunk. Hello? There is sun and wind to power our cars people. Why are we damaging the planet that gives us our life?

Yeah why do we even need oil (i know selling it helps the world economy). But really is money more important then the world? But what am i saying it seems all any one cares about is money... :roll:
Hunting is not destruction and i get annoyed by people all ways going like: OOO your killing the animals!
I just say: No. its population managment, and could someone who hates animals know so much about them?

money tends to be in everyones pocket and they wind up spending it non-stop, for the oil spill on the other hand.... that's terrible to hear, even in an animal preserve :/ Yet I hope they are alright.

Oil is by far the cheapest, and that is why we still use it. Wind and electricity powered are expensive on the market right now. Scientists are still trying to come up with ways to make it efficient and world wide but until then, oil runs our entire economy and is VERY hard to just shut down all at once. We are gradually moving away from oil, but before we completely stop, it will take a long time.

I suppose this incident will affect all wilflife in that area. This is horrible to hear and makes me wonder about humans and our decisions that evolve around "greed". -.-

Thanks for letting us know, April. That's sad, truly. I mean, it happened months ago, but I just can't understand how it happened! I guess the wildlife around the rivers already came back to normal, yes? :c Sad to see something like this happening there...

The oil spill happened almost two years ago.
However, Exxon was just fined almost 2 million dollars for the incident about a week or so ago. If you're interested, you can take a look here if you were unaware of the update:
