    Op Bonaire is afgelopen vrijdag honderden tot duizenden liters olie uit een olieput van autobedrijf Akkerman weggelekt de natuur in. De olie is via Saliña di Vlijt grotendeels in zee terecht gekomen. De omvang en gevolgen van de milieuramp moeten nog in kaart worden gebracht, maar die lijken vooralsnog beperkt. Volgens eerste schattingen gaat het om 500 tot 5000 liter olie. De Dienst Ruimtelijke Ontwikkeling coordineert samen met het ministerie van VROM in Nederland de ramp.

    Denmark: Greenpeace has warned that news that a Scottish energy company has found signs of hydrocarbons off Greenland’s coast could spark an oil rush that “would threaten the fragile environment.”

    Greenpeace spokesman Ben Stewart says Cairn should follow the example of oil companies that have suspended deep-water drilling after the spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

    Edinburgh-based Cairn Energy PLC started drilling 108 miles west of the Disko Island on July 1.
