This morning Cord posted a startling chart about BP's oil spill accounting in their latest Sustainability Review. The chart shows BP's "volume of oil spilled" in 2006, 2008, and 2010, and was pretty infuriating as it didn't include numbers from the Gulf oil spill. Which, obviously, changes things.
Here are the numbers that the graph was culled from:
Happiness Brussels has put together an art project to raise money for (and awareness about) about the oil spill relief, with limited-edition posters bearing the simple but strong message "Oil & Water Do Not Mix." The hook? They are using oil from the oil spill in the Gulf for the prints. They sell for 150 pounds apiece, with all proceeds going to the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana.
