Remembering BP's Many Smokescreens

Pulling Up Oiled Seaweed Off PensacolaI usually try to keep The Green Miles (my personal blog) separate from my work at the National Wildlife Federation. But I thought I'd share the link to a post I wrote at NWF's blog on the top 10 heroes of the Gulf oil disaster.

It was interesting to think about the first days of the disaster in light of what we know now. Can you believe BP claimed the gusher was only 200,000 gallons a day when it was closer to 200,000 gallons every few hours? Or that BP had live cameras of the gusher that it didn't make public for weeks? Or that the federal government didn't object in either case until conservation groups & members of Congress protested?

Here's a link to all my NWF posts.
