Two years ago today the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded, due to poor decisions made by BP and Halliburton engineers, killing 11 rig workers and spilling upwards of 200 million gallons of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico. As tragic as that moment was, the tragedy continues to spread, much as the 1.8 million gallons of chemical dispersants spread far beyond the waters where they were targeted.

I was listening to kpft in Houston and heard this great talk on TUC Radio with Julia Whitty.  I've been particularly concerned with the discussion on what the short and long term environmental impacts of the bp drilling disaster are going to look like.  Much of the media has been reporting that most of the oil is gone.
