Crude oil index

Activists protesting against oil spills, oil drilling and climate change can make a bold statement by using their bodies as a canvas, covered in fake oil, to remind people just how dirty crude oil really is. These were protests against Cairn Energy drilling in the Gulf of Valencia, BP funding of Tate Museum, and Canadian tar sands oil in Europe.
