Rate this:
"This up-to-date new book describes the alarming events of 2010 after an oil rig toppled over in the Gulf of Mexico releasing millions of gallons of oil into the water. The largest accidental oil spill in history, it killed untold numbers of wildlife, poisoned over a hundred miles of coastal land, and devastated the commercial fishing and tourism industries in an area still reeling from the destruction wreaked by Hurricane Katrina. Topics include: • efforts made to cap the flow of oil by British Petroleum, the company who owns the oil rig • the U.S. government's actions during the events • estimates of how much oil was really spilled • safety issues of offshore oilrigs." -- from publisher's website.
