Oil in deep water

BP may have ruined one third of the Gulf of Mexico for 25 years. But as well as the cleanup, what of the future?

We need to know not only what BP’s policies and practices are for such dangerous operations, but also what those of all the oil companies are. Whether it is Shell, Exxon or a state-owned oil company, what controls will be put in place for the future? And will governments have a greater role?

There is deep water all over the world.
