Ah man, don't you hate those days where everything goes totally right except for when you, I dunno, step in a puddle? BP CEO Bob Dudley feels like that about BP in 2010, except his "puddle" was an environmental armageddon.
How is the scrappy Plaquemines Parish Inland Waterway Strike Force cleaning up BP's mess as oil creeps into their backyard - the wetlands of southeastern Louisiana? With dustbusters. And they say they're "knocking the socks off" BP's cleanup crews.
BP has acknowledged their practice of photoshopping some of the official images of their Deepwater Horizon clean-up efforts and has vowed to stop manipulating photographs going forward. They've also created a Flickr account where you can see the unaltered originals.
This week it came to light that BP had photoshopped - poorly - an official image of their crisis command centre. Apparently that wasn't an isolated incident. Let's take a closer look at this view from a helicopter, shall we?
Earlier today, BP reported that their latest containment cap succeeded in stopping the flow of oil from the Deepwater Horizon rig. But as the Science Guy explains, closing the valves on the new cap could make matters even worse.
According to BP officials, the latest containment seal placed at their Deepwater Horizon rig has been successful. That means that for the first time in months, no new oil is gushing into the Gulf.
Looks like BP has successfully placed a new containment cap onto that oil gusher in the Gulf. It'll take some tests and time before we know if this cap is actually effective though.
This morning will mark BP's umpteenth attempt at containing the ecological disaster they created months ago. And because they're out of new ideas, they're just trading in their kinda-working sealing cap for a (hopefully) better one.
