Australia has another freighter in the vicinity of the Great Coral Reef-the ship has no cargo but it's engine is in need of repair. Three ships have gone out to meet up with the freighter. Memories are long over the 2010 freighter that spilled oil and ran over a part of the reef.

Senate fails to approve Keystone XL pipeline
A small victory for now and hopefully one step closer to getting rid of the idea of the pipeline running through BC or Alberta. Neither can afford a disaste of that magnitude, the environment would suffer perhaps irreversible damage.
"It's a high-tech, state-of-the-art pipeline that's going to put thousands of people to work," Landrieu said. "This has absolutely nothing to do with climate change."

The vote nevertheless offers a preview of what is ahead for Obama on energy and environmental issues when the Republicans take control of both houses of Congress next year.
So were all the others that failed and caused disasters to the water ways and creatures in and around it, so I wonder how the Republicans will handle it when a disaster happens to a project they heavily support? Can't blame that on the Dems, so who will become their scapegoat if the pipeline happens. If it happens in Alberta, that might do, but on their side of the border they will need to deal with the outpour of anger when a disaster occurs. This is not a case of if it happens, but when it happens, and history shows it will and the company doesn't have a stellar record so it's just a matter of time.

Dolphins studied in an area affected by the BP oil spill have had a marked decrease in live calf births. Scientists think their population will be impacted for years given how dolphins space their births and the adult dolphins are exhibiting health conditions of their own as well.
The government study is the latest by a team of scientists that has tracked the health of a population of common bottlenose dolphins in Barataria Bay, an estuary south of New Orleans covered in heavy slicks after BP's April 2010 oil spill off the coast of Louisiana.

The researchers tracked 10 pregnant dolphins for nearly four years and found that only two of the dolphins gave birth to calves.

The study was published Tuesday in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B in Britain.
