    China oil spill doubles in size, is deemed 'severe threat'
    Crude pours out after pipeline blast; at least 1 firefighter dead


    BEIJING China's largest reported oil spill more than doubled in size to 165 square miles by Wednesday, forcing nearby beaches to close and prompting one official to warn of a "severe threat" to sea life and water quality.

    The oil slick started spreading five days ago when a pipeline at a busy northeastern port exploded, sparking a massive fire that took more than 15 hours to contain. Hundreds of boats have been deployed to help with the cleanup.

    Growing China oil spill threatens sea life, water
    By CARA ANNA (AP) 1 hour ago

    BEIJING China's largest reported oil spill had more than doubled by Wednesday, closing beaches on the Yellow Sea and prompting an environmental official to warn the sticky black crude posed a "severe threat" to sea life and water quality.

    Some workers trying to clean up the inky beaches wore little more than rubber gloves, complicating efforts, one official said. But 40 oil-control boats and hundreds of fishing boats were also deployed in the area.

    "I've been to a few bays today and discovered they were almost entirely covered with dark oil," said Zhong Yu, a worker with the environmental group Greenpeace China, who spent Wednesday on a boat inspecting the spill.

    "The oil is half-solid and half liquid and is as sticky as asphalt," she told The Associated Press.

    This scares me, we buy so much seafood from China. I wonder if the FDA is monitoring this. I really don't want to eat anything from China, they don't seem to have any government to watch what is in the food, toys and whatever else they send to us, and we buy it because it's cheap.
    It's almost been a year since we did our last show.Jay Bush my partner has been auditioning for the show Shark Tank and so this has put the show on hold. If he gets on Shark Tank, we will be terribly delayed. Good luck Jay. Either way we will one day continue the show and have the coolest global independent radio station out there. This is just a small video we did with one of our artists.Waiting for One and their tune 35 years. Check it out.
