Nearly two years later, BP oilspill remains
~Nikki Buskey~“We still have 200 miles of oiled coast two years after the spill. That’s unacceptable,” said Garret Graves, top coastal adviser to Gov. Bobby Jindal and lead trustee for Louisiana on the Natural Resources Damage Assessment, which quantifies environmental damage from the spill. “We still have very clear, retrievable oil in coastal areas. One million barrels of oil, four times what was spilled in the Exxon Valdez, remains unaccounted for. All we’re asking is for them to go out and clean up that oil.”
