Gulf of Mexico on fire


This is fine.

The fire took more than five hours to fully put out, according to Pemex. Pemex said no injuries were reported, and production from the project was not affected.

PRODUCTION WAS NOT AFFECTED YOU GUYS!! THE LINE IS PLEASED!!

Angel Carrizales, head of Mexico's oil safety regulator ASEA, wrote on Twitter that the incident "did not generate any spill." He did not explain what was burning on the water's surface.

"The turbomachinery of Ku Maloob Zaap's active production facilities were affected by an electrical storm and heavy rains," according to a Pemex incident report shared by one of Reuters' sources.

    At least this is a news story nowadays. The Cuyahoga river caught fire at least a dozen times, but this was not newsworthy until 1969.

    apparently the sop when the ocean is on fire is you put water on it.

    I foolishly developed hope for the future during the lockdowns of 2020. Recently BP of the famous oil spill in the same gulf have stated that there were CO2 emission reductions of 6% last year, due to the same.

    However emissions gone more or less back to 'normal' by now. 'Doomed' is so incredibly apt, and those closer to the equator will bear the brunt. I don't care how many 'this will affect everybody' or 'hundreds die in Canada' articles are written.
