Picture of the Day: Port Harcourt, Nigeria. An aerial shot of an illegal oil refinery along Awoba Creek north of Port Harcourt, an oil hub city. The illegal oil industry in Nigeria is estimated to be worth hundreds of millions of dollars yearly. Will you look at that oil sheen on the water..
Fun fact: Over the last five years, Shell Oil has dealt with an average of 172 spills a year. 63 of them last year were “operational,” or over 100kg. Shell has announced that it paid $1.1 million in reparations to affected communities last year. 
Bonus: Read this report on environmental and human rights abuses in Nigeria.

Graph showing carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere over the past 650,000 years. Concentrations are measured by examining trapped air bubbles in prehistoric ice cores. The graph shows current CO2 levels at an unprecedented high level in the atmosphere, far greater than during past natural climate cycles. A rapid increase is observed since the industrial revolution, highlighting the contribution of the burning of fossil fuels.

First photo of the Chernobyl reactor following the reactor, 27 April, 1986The first photo to be taken of the reactor, at 4pm, 14 hours after the explosion. This was taken from the first helicopter to fly over the disaster zone to evaluate radiation levels. The view is foggy due to radiation, which also explains why the shot was not taken too close to the window. Later, radiation experts learnt that at 200 metres above the reactor, levels reached 1500 rems, despite the fact that their counters did not exceed 500 rems.
