Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill.

leave a comment »

Following an explosion on April 20th and subsequent sinking of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Platform. Possibly the biggest Oil spill in the world is unfolding, it is estimated that up to 8,000 thousand barrels of oil a day are leaking out. Measures are being taken to try to contain the effects of the spillage but are likely to be unable to protect marine life, numerous bird species and the coastline itself.The economy of the region is also likely to take a knock. Don’t think I would like to be in British Petroleum shoe’s at the moment.
