Exxon Ordered To Pay Interest On Damage

17 06 2009

exxon-mobil_LogoYesterday, Exxon Mobile was ordered to pay interest on damage from their devastating 1989 oil spill in Prince William Sound in Alaska. Having fished salmon in Valdez, Ak, I can attest first hand to the damages there. The last time I was in that area was in 2007, almost 20 years after the spill. Amazingly, you can still see a sheen of oil in the water. Many fisherman lost a large portion of their income by being unable to fish in that area, as well as the unimaginable amount of destruction to the habitat and animals. Below is a picture I snapped in 2006, while salmon fishing in beautiful Valdez.
