Alaska pipe spews gas and oil

Environmentalists will milk this for all it's worth by using it as an example of what could happen if drilling goes ahead in the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge:
An estimated 1.4 million cubic feet of natural gas and an unknown quantity of crude oil spewed from a leak in a pipeline at the Prudhoe Bay oil field on Alaska's North Slope, state environmental regulators said on Tuesday.

The resulting mist of crude oil coated an area nearly a mile long and averaged about 300 feet wide, the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation said in a statement.
Lucky that stuff's all natural.
