The Russians have their own approach to the environment at home while preparing to drill for oil (as are the Chinese) in the Gulf of Mexico.

From BBC World News:

Chemical pollution from Monday’s explosion at Russia’s largest hydro-electric power station has killed fish and spread down a major Siberian river.

Russian officials say booms are being deployed on the Yenisei river to trap the transformer oil. Absorbents are being thrown from helicopters.

In a stormy meeting with officials, relatives of the missing said they feared not being told the whole truth.

The blast killed as many as 76 people at the Sayano-Shushenskaya plant.

The search for dozens of missing workers is continuing.

The number of confirmed dead stands at 14.
