BP Deepwater Disaster and Gulf Oil Spill

Feature story - June 15, 2010
The Deepwater Horizon accident and oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is a disaster unfolding before our eyes. Eleven lives were lost in the initial explosion, and that incalculable loss is compounded daily as oil continues to flow.

Preventing the next disaster

It could not be more clear that we need to stop investing in a broken energy economy and kickstart a clean energy revolution. The new report prepared by Greenpeace and the European Renewable Energy Council, Energy [R]evolution: A Sustainable USA Energy Outlook, is a comprehensive blueprint for building the clean energy economy of the future while leaving behind the dirty energy sources of the past.

A ban on all new oil drilling is the only way to avoid another spill disaster. Take action now
