Big oil. Big tankers. Big trouble.




From: PBS


Sixteen years after the Exxon Valdez spills millions of gallons of crude into Alaskan waters, a Seattle reporter gets a tip from a whistleblower. Despite reforms and safety regulations put in place since the spill, was another major accident waiting to happen?

In the fall of 2004, a spill of hundreds of gallons of thick crude oil in Puget Sound led a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer to look into the safety of oil tankers in the Pacific Northwest. Aided by an initially reluctant whistleblower, journalist Eric Nalder made some very unsettling discoveries - and revealed how oil tankers are not as safe as they might seem.
