As you have read, on April 20, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon explosion not only killed 11 people and seriously injured 28 workers, it leaked oil into the Gulf for 87 days, dumping 134 million gallons into the Gulf. This spill fouled wildlife habitats, fishing communities and commerce along the large number of coastal communities in Louisiana, Missouri, Texas, Alabama and Florida. What resulted from this incident was an economic, political, scientific nightmare that was not settled until six years later, when on April 4th, 2016, a Federal District Judge approved the largest environmental damage settlement in US history of $20.8 billion dollars.

The Chief of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Restoration Center, Chris Doley, commented exactly ten years later that while much had been accomplished by the collective work and dedication of so many people, much remained to be done to restore the Gulf’s resources and “NOAA’s work will extend well past 2030.” (NOAA, April 20, 2020)

As you consider what you have read, who else do you blame for this devastation? What do you think of the settlement? As a consumer, do you have any second thought about buying BP products? Do you believe that BP has recovered its corporate image? Please try to support your opinions with facts and information.
