On July 16, 2010 China suffered what has been called its biggest oil spill, perhaps as many as 365,000 barrels of crude oil. (The Exxon Valdez released 270,000 barrels.) The New York Times reported on questions about China’s official account. The Big Picture offers many stunning photos from AP and Jiang He, for Greenpeace. Here, Greenpeace provides a video story of photographer Lu Guang, who won a World Press Photo award in 2011 (Third Prize, Spot News Stories), for his pictures capturing the death of firefighter Zhang Liang in the oily waters.
