You Can Tell When It's... Leaking

The BBC is reporting this morning a second leak beneath the Gannet Alpha.

Shell say they care about the environment. (If so they'd stop drilling for oil and build some renewable stuff.)

Interesting to note the FT explains the Gannet Alpha leak is the biggest for the last ten years, with a handy graph revealing that oil leaks in the North Sea are pretty common. Almost a thousand barrels of the stuff scooshed out in 2003 for example. Why wasn't this reported at the time?
