Exxon Valdez 20 years later

"Exxon Valdez oil persists in the environment and, in places, is nearly
as toxic as it was the first few weeks after the spill."

In some bays in Prince William Sound, if you dig into the mud, the oil will pool up. Transient orcas are dying out. Herring stocks are still depressed. The Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Trustee Council 2009 Status Report is a round-up of the latest chapters in a nightmare that began 20 years ago.
