Anaheim Ducks Gameday: Oil Spills

Bill David Brooks

This seems pretty dangerous.



Anaheim plays the first of two consecutive games at Rexall tonight, in the second of three games against the Oilers. The last time the Ducks met the Oilers was in Anaheim on April 8th, and it was also the last game the Ducks won. In the four games since then, the Ducks have mostly not even tried to win.

Anyway, here's a list I stole from Wikipedia of every oil spill, ever.

Note: The "flow rate" column applies to leaking wells, pipelines, etc., and is often used to estimate the total amount of oil spilled. The "full cargo" column applies to vessels, vehicles, etc., and represents the maximum amount of oil that could be spilled. The "spilled" columns indicate the total amount of oil that has been released to the environment so far, and should be based on official estimates found in referenced sources whenever possible. When official estimates vary, use the "min tonnes" and "max tonnes" columns to show the range of estimates (minimum and maximum) in metric tonnes (i.e. 1 tonne = 1,000 kg).
