California Declares State Of Emergency As Oil Spill Harms Pristine Coastline

GOLETA, CA - MAY 22: A bird covered in oil spreads its wings as it sits on a rock near Refugio State Beach on May 22, 2015 in Goleta, California. California Gov. Jerry Brown declared a State of Emergency after over 100,000 gallons of oil spilled from an abandoned pipeline on the land near Refugio State Beach, spreading over about nine miles of beach within hours. The largest oil spill ever in U.S. waters at the time occurred in the same section of the coast in 1969 where numerous offshore oil platforms can be seen, giving birth to the modern American environmental movement.
