Gulf + 1

A year ago, the Deepwater Horizon drilling platform exploded and caught fire in the Gulf of Mexico. Two days later it sank, rupturing the riser pipe from the wellhead and ultimately resulting in 185 million gallons of oil entering the Gulf of Mexico.

Last year, I coordinated a Greenpeace fact-finding trip and research cruise to the Gulf ; one year on, I've written a short report for the same organization that details some of the horrors, and the attempts to avoid accountability, during and since the accident.
