Life After BP (2011)
When the BP Deepwater Horizon rig blew up off the Louisiana coast on April 20, 2010, it triggered what would turn out to be the worst oil spill in U.S. history, with almost 200 million gallons pouring into the Gulf of Mexico before the well was capped three months later.
Oil-covered pelicans and struggling fishing families became common symbols of the BP disaster, and the spill's devastating consequences on the environment and economy are still reverberating across the Gulf Coast.
