Today in 1989, the Exxon Valdez poured hundreds of thousands of barrels of crude oil into the Prince William Sound. 


What do you remember about this huge environmental disaster?

The Exxon station in my town took down the sign with the tiger on it when it happened.

As an act of protest, solidarity ...?

I don't truly know, but my guess is somebody wanted to avoid questions like "how dare you use a wild animal to advertise when you destroy the environment?"

If it weren't for this thread causing me to look this stuff up, I would have thought the company stopped using the tiger entirely. I haven't seen him since the spill but apparently they continued to use him in many locations.

Indeed they did. And still do.

Just all the images of ducks being cleaned off by environmental people. Bad deal.
