Don't let BP write off the Gulf Coast disaster
The BP Deepwater Horizon blowout took a massive toll on our environment, the region's wildlife, and nearby communities. For three months after the initial explosion, millions of gallons of crude oil and thousands of tons of methane spewed from the sea floor. Eleven people were killed and dozens more injured. Five years later, we are still suffering from the impacts.
BP was found "grossly negligent" for its role in the disaster, however, their settlement will be almost entirely tax deductible. Tell the Department of Justice to deny BP tax write offs for its remaining payments to address the 2010 Gulf Coast disaster.
