- Lasting legacy of the Exxon Valdez: Twenty years on, the iconic oil spill remains an expensive ecological disaster
- Stick your damn hand in it: 20th Birthday of the Exxon Valdez Lie
Indeed, the "human error" tale was the hook used by the Bush-stacked Supreme Court to slash the punitive damages awarded against Exxon by 90%, from $5 billion, to half a billion for 30,000 Natives and fishermen. Chief Justice John Roberts erased almost all of the payment due with the la-dee-dah comment, "What more can a corporation do?"
- Lessons of the Exxon Valdez
Yet the Exxon Valdez still sends a powerful cautionary message: oil development, however necessary, is an inherently risky, dirty business — especially so in the forbidding waters of the Arctic.

WAKE UP AMERICA THIS IS THE SHIT!:
The best revenge is Democracy!
I’ll have yinz know me daughter was born in AK during the ex Valdez. I’d been fishing and working there for a while. Get this, a friend of mine came up with idea for the boom to surround the oil. Somebody took the idea and patented it. He got nothing and the creep who did that made bunches of money. He was a Kodiak fisherman, trying to help save his livelihood.

After reading the Palast article, I'd like to clarify the boom I was talking about in my above comment was made from an absorbant material not the rubber ones the oil companies were not using when it happened. Another issue related to the spill that no one ever talks about is the fact that the oil that was allowed to sink turns basically to asphalt paving the sea floor. I learned about that while talking to one of their spill experts who had worked on the spill in the English Channel in 1978.
