The largest oil spill in world history was the Gulf War oil spill, in the Persian Gulf in January 1991. Experts estimate the amount of crude oil spilled was well over 5 times that of the Exxon Valdez oil spill of 1989. The spill was caused when Iraqi military forces opened oil valves near Kuwait City during the first Gulf War, and endangered wildlife habitats throughout the coast of the Arabian peninsula, bringing some to call it this one of the worst acts of "environmental warfare."

Over-fishing spell disaster for oceans

The future food security of millions of people is at risk because over-fishing, climate change and pollution are inflicting massive damage on the world's oceans, marine scientists warned this week.
The two-thirds of the planet covered by seas provide one fifth of the world's protein -- but 75 percent of fish stocks are now fully exploited or depleted, a Hanoi conference that ended Friday was told.
Warming seas are bleaching corals, feeding algal blooms and changing ocean currents that impact the weather, and rising sea levels could in future threaten coastal areas from Bangladesh to New York, experts said
