May 5, 2010 – This year is shaping up to be an unfathomable year for British Petroleum (BP), as the recent Deepwater Horizon explosion in the Gulf of Mexico is proving to be the worst oil spill in the nation’s recent past.
Speculation has been flying since the disaster on April 20th, with many asking the question of whether the company is taking adequate steps to handle the situation. To date, the oil slick has spread to a circumference of over a thousand kilometers. The spill is growing at an astounding rate, as more than 200,000 gallons of oil is being pumped into the sea each day.
Many say BP needs to step up their progress in stopping the leakage, otherwise there is sure to be long-standing catastrophic consequences. Scientists say the ecological disturbance caused by the oil spill is enough to show the environmental hazard it possesses for human life. Every day, hundreds of dead marine creatures are being washed ashore.
As the BP oil spill reaches closer to the shores of Florida, residents and merchants are panicked about the health and economic consequences that are sure to follow unless BP does something dramatic to avoid the catastrophe soon.
