News & Action
On April 20, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig -- leased by BP and owned by Transocean -- exploded off the coast of Louisiana, killing eleven men, and unleashing a 210 million gallon oil gusher. It became the largest oil disaster in American history, and it could happen again.
"These remarkable stories—of loss, heroism, and culpability—are a vivid reminder that this catastrophe will be with us for decades."
The Black Tide book tour begins on April 9 in San Francisco. The next day, Antonia heads to London with Gulf Coast residents harmed by the disaster for BP's annual shareholder meeting, before launching a national tour taking her across the U.S. and to a city near you.
The Global Exchange Energy Program is committed to exposing the true cost of our deadly oil addiction on real people, real communities, and real ecosystems at all points of oil’s operations as we work to promote the transition to renewable energy.
We hope you will join us and help us spread the word!
Many thanks for your ongoing work to support peace and justice.
