Valdez Quotes (2 quotes)
Ecologically speaking, a spilt tanker load is like sticking a safety pin into an elephant’s foot. The planet barely notices. After the Exxon Valdez accident in Alaska the oil company spent billions tidying up the coastline, but it was a waste of money because the waves were cleaning up faster than Exxon could. Environmentalists can never accept the planet’s ability to self-heal.
It wasn't his [the captain of the Exxon Valdez] driving that caused the Alaskan oil spill. It was yours.
