The BP Oil Spill largest Ever!

British Petroleum or BP as the company has now officially changed its name to, is responsible for the worst spill in history. History, not just in the United States. While there are other supposedly larger spills that have occurred in the past such as the Ixtoc I oil spill in Mexico which spewed some 3,000,000 barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico over a 9 month period. That’s right, while some government estimates and certainly BP’s attempt to lie to and mislead the public by stating that its well was only spewing an estimated 5,000 barrels of oil a day into the Gulf, in fact the total was and is still much higher.
