Oil from the Exxon Valdez spill is still being found in Prince William Sound
You might be excused for looking at this pic of oil from the Exxon Valdez and thinking “Oh, that picture must be from 1989”. Actually, it’s from 2014. Apparently, the US’s second largest oil spill (knocked out of first place by the Deepwater Horizon spill in 2010) is still wreaking havoc on Prince William Sound, but just not in places that are visible. Cleaning crews did a great job of cleaning up the shores, but they didn’t bother cleaning behind rocks on the shore. Oil from the spill is still present in these nooks and crannies, and it’s fresh as harvest day.
