BP Oil Spill. Documenting the Crisis in US Gulf Coast

Essay from the year 2014 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Environmental Policy, , course: Environmental Policy/Environmental Economics/Environmental Education, language: English, abstract: The damaged Deep-water Horizon rig not only led to deaths in a workplace, it exposed the failure of a company that probably put profits before people. The unconscionable decisions of a multinational corporation in oil and gas prospecting, its contractors and associated partners led to the deaths of innocent workers. The analysis of events surrounding the accidental explosion in the Gulf of Mexico on the Deep-water Horizon rig added new knowledge to the understanding of risk involved in prospecting for oil and gas in deep and shallow water. BP OIL SPILL: Documenting the Crisis in US Gulf Coast is a piece of this knowledge.
