Another Oil Spill – This Time in Indonesia

This is getting silly. There has been yet another oil spill. Rescuers are trying to contain an oil slick from a small tanker that capsized at a port in central Indonesia yesterday, after it was loaded up with more than 4,000 barrels of fuel.

It is not immediately clear how much oil had leaked from the “Karisma Selatan,” but authorities placed rubber buoys around the overturned ship to prevent the slick from spreading.

Rescuers were trying to determine how best to lift the tanker without causing a more serious spill — a process that could take two weeks.
