Greenpeace campaigned this summer to block Shell from sinking the oil platform in deep waters, and Shell eventually backed down amid strong consumer protests in continental Europe.

A 700-foot tanker carrying almost 25 million gallons of oil ran aground and was breaking up in the Shetland Islands on Tuesday, creating a potentially major environmental disaster in an internationally known wildlife area. The single-hulled ship, the Liberian-registered Braer, was carrying almost double the amount of crude that was aboard the Exxon Valdez when it ran aground in Alaska in 1989.

August 16, 1998 | TOM HOGEN-ESCH, Tom Hogen-Esch, a USC doctoral student in political science, is a researcher for the elected Los Angeles charter reform commission. His positions do not necessarily reflect those of the commission
In the debate over Los Angeles charter reform, those who believe that giving more power to neighborhoods will mollify the various secession efforts would do well to study how decentralization has fared in other countries.
