File still image from video shows gas and oil leaking at the Deepwater Horizon gulf oil spill site in the Gulf of Mexico
Gas and oil continue to leak at the Deepwater Horizon gulf oil spill site in the Gulf of Mexico in this file still image from a June 24, 2010 BP live video feed. When BP's Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded and sank in the Gulf of Mexico last April, killing 11 workers, authorities first reported that no crude was leaking into the ocean. They were wrong. One year on, oil from the largest spill in U.S. history clogs wetlands, pollutes the ocean and endangers wildlife, not to mention the toll it has inflicted on the coastal economies of Florida, Mississippi, Alabama and especially Louisiana.
