The first video from the new D.O.A. album Hard Rain Falling. Joe, Paddy and Mike take over a newsroom to take on the big oil companies!
Every year, oil rigs and tankers spill on average 250,000,000 gallons of oil onto land or water globally.
The BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill released 200,000,000 gallons of oil and cost an estimated 22 Billion dollar loss to tourism. Fishing closures reached over 88,000 square miles. 60% of the oil remains unaccounted for.
In 2007 250,000 litres of crude oil leaked from a Kinder Morgan pipeline into the Burrard Inlet.
Mar 2, 2014 - Police arrest hundreds protesting the Keystone XL Pipeline in front of the White House. Dozens arrested by Canadian Police on Burnaby Mountain protesting the Trans Mountain Pipeline. First Nations back pipeline protest in B.C. amid more arrests.
Alberta has had an average of 2 oil spills every day for the past 37 years.
In 2010, a million gallons of oil poured into the Kalamazoo River from an Enbridge pipeline . One billion dollars spent on cleanup and 40 miles of the river are still contaminated. Tar sands oil is one of the dirtiest fuels on the Earth. It takes three barrels of water to extract each single barrel of oil.
To avoid devastating climate effects, the melting of Arctic ice, sea level rise, extreme tornadoes, hurricanes, floods and heat waves, the International Energy Association says two-thirds of known fossil reserves must remain untouched.
Polls suggest North Americans are not in favor of oil spills, pipeline ruptures, refinery fires, tanker wrecks, train disasters or environmental damages. A clear majority dislike bird kills, fish kills, water-table destruction, aquifer damage, and/or toxic environmental emissions. No one we polled would knowingly ingest toxic hydro-carbons, residual fracking chemicals, oil emulsifiers, hydraulic fluids, benzene or industrial solvents.
D.O.A. Factoid; D.O.A. have been fighting for your rights since 1978!
This story is based on facts.
Any similarity to actual companies is fully intentional.
As we learned earlier this year, D.O.A. are very much against pipelines. Now, the political Vancouver punk crew are promoting both their ideals and their new Hard Rain Falling LP with a video for "Pipeline Fever."
The video is presented as a newscast, with D.O.A. founder/vocalist Joe "Shithead" Keithley acting as an anchorman informing us on the ills of the oil companies. The broadcast has him delivering hard truths about companies willing to do just about anything to "get their stinkin' pipelines through," and showing footage of bitumen-soaked wildlife as further proof of "oil spill grief."
