Environmental groups sue Obama admin over Shell drilling approval in GOM

“It is as if the government regulators have learned nothing from the BP disaster,” said Earthjustice attorney David Guest.

Our summers are getting wetter and if this trend continues, then we will have to find different means of farming,” said Australian farmer Charlie Bragg, who farms on a 3,000 hectare block about two hours drive west of Canberra, the Australian capital.

The U.S. Justice Department said on Thursday that “Exxon, the world’s largest publicly traded oil and gas company, had agreed to pay $400,000 in fines and $200,000 in community service payments as part of the plea deal.” Reuters reported.

Exxon reportedly pleaded guilty in Denver federal court to violating a federal law designed to protect migratory birds.

“According to court documents, most of the birds died after exposure to hydrocarbons in uncovered natural gas well reserve pits and waste water storage facilities.”
