Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Deepwater Horizon was supposed to be the cutting edge of energy exploration: drilling five thousand feet below the surface of the Gulf of Mexico, the $560 million rig would be indispensable in helping to solve the ongoing energy crisis. Then, on April 20, 2010, BPs dismal safety record came home to roost. An explosion followed by a massive fireball resulted in eleven lives lost, the sinking of the rig, and the release of millions of barrels of crude oil into one of the worlds prime fishing grounds. The barrels suffocate the Gulfs watersthe resultant slick covers 2,500 square miles. Wildlife in the region is devastated, as is the human community dependent on harvesting the areas resources. This is the first book to appear on this environmental catastrophe, the largest offshore spill in American history. It provides a brief account of the disaster and the policy failures that caused itand lays out a blueprint to avoid future catastrophes.
