BP: Drowning in Oil

November 12, 2011

I have repeatedly written about how BP is a serial polluter whose corporate culture places profits over people’s lives and the environment (Read Outtakes: No Faith in BP).

One person intimate with BP events dating back to the Texas City explosion is Loren Steffy, columnist with the Houston Chronicle. Following the disaster at the Deepwater Horizon oil platform, Steffy decided to chronicle what occurred with BP’s facilities in his most recent book, “Drowning in Oil: BP and the Reckless Pursuit of Profit.” The book is a chilling account of events and people’s decisions leading up to the catastrophic events of April 20, 2010 in the Gulf of Mexico.
