Save our Seabirds - PIB spill in the UK - Petition

Grant RW Humphries, May 8, 2013
 

Hi everyone,

Many of you might already be aware of the "spill" of PIB (polyisobutane) in the United Kingdom, which has caused the deaths of up to 3000 birds from guillemots to razorbills. PIB is a chemical used to lubricate ship engines. When ship engines are flushed, this chemical spreads into the ecosystem, and is totally legal.

See this article in the Guardian.

You can also do a search for articles that have been going back as far as February on this issue.

I urge you all to check out this video:

And also to sign the AVAAZ petition, and the 38 Degrees petition

Thanks
