Two years after a ruptured pipeline poured 134,000 gallons of tar sands oil into the suburban streets of Mayflower, Arkansas, creating a toxic mess that devastated both the community and the environment, ExxonMobil has been ordered to pay a $5 million fine for its role in the disaster, the state announced on Wednesday.
Hmmm...Exxon...Valdez...Alaska...paltry compensation payout...no real cleanup to date...disaster March, 1989.
Same story, different year.
They just "pay off" the "right folks" and their retained attorneys. People/planet be damned.
That pretty much sums it up. Don't forget BP's little escapade.
