Yesterday marked the one-year anniversary of the BP Oil Spill, which unleashed nearly 5 million barrels of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico. The largest environmental disaster in U.S. history killed 11 rig workers, thousands of marine animals, and devastated the fishing and tourism industries along the Gulf shore. Those industries suffered a combined $25 billion in losses, and left thousands of people struggling with unemployment.
This overwhelming body of evidence highlights, yet again, the problems inherent in our current methods of energy production.
