The first signs of Deepwater Horizon oil were found in blue crab larvae in 2010. Oil likely entered the food chain through zooplankton
The reality is that there are fundamental structural problems with BP’s and other oil majors’ growth-led business model.
Compared to the destruction and harm BP caused in the 2010 Deepwater Horizon explosion, their settlement is very minimal, but at least they will have to pay for this spill. Let’s hope the government sticks to their guns and makes sure this settlement is passed.
While there is an ongoing impact of the 2010 oil spill, drilling has resumed near the site of the explosion that caused the worst industrial environmental disaster in U.S. history. Doesn't anyone remember the devastation?
