Another oil spill happened in the Gulf of Mexico 31 years ago. The way they handled it then is virtually the same as the way they’re handling it now. They weren’t too successful back then either.
The flagrant display of incompetence and greed shown by British Petroleum (BP) in the Gulf of Mexico right now is nothing short of sickening. It’s no wonder people hate oil companies these days. Of course they’re not all like BP, but BP isn’t helping any of them.
