BP Deepwater Horizon Gulf Oil Spill: BP’s Bad Behavior
May 21, 2010
The oil spill involving the British Petroleum (BP) Deepwater Horizon is only the latest accident in BP's long history of environmental and safety disasters. Despite a long rap sheet of environmental wrongdoing, BP touts itself as a "green" company, and spends millions of dollars attempting to rebrand itself as "Beyond Petroleum." But in reality, it fights relentlessly for oil and gas exploration and drilling in environmentally sensitive regions, including Alaska and the Gulf of Mexico.
