Oil company Royal Dutch Shell has begun the massive task of cleaning up
nearly 90,000 gallons of crude oil that leaked from a company oil

But don’t worry, I expect they’ve lept into action with some dish detergent and some kitchen roll and they’ll be cleaning it up just lickety-split. And it’s not like these things have unexpected long term effects or anything.
