Not yet, at least. Can you think of anything more despicable than seeking to profit from a disaster that has destroyed so many lives and irreparably damaged the environment? I certainly can’t. As we near the Feb. 27 trial date in New Orleans, I anticipate that we will all grow increasingly disgusted by the evidence that surfaces as to how one of the wealthiest, most powerful corporations in the world caused the worst oil spill in U.S. history and then perpetrated one of the biggest coverups in recent times. Stay tuned.
On April 22, 2010, top BP officials knew that the crippled Macondo Well would release roughly 82,000 barrels of oil a day into the Gulf of Mexico if the leak

Crossposted from Facing South. For residents of the Gulf Coast, the BP oil spill is an ongoing disaster that's still causing serious health problems, environmental damage and economic hardship in one of the nation's key fisheries and tourism centers.

But listen to the national political conversation and it sounds as though America would like to forget that the BP oil disaster ever happened at all, never mind that it's still being suffered today.

There, in the 1890s, a teenage African American followed his brothers into the coal mines, servin...
As the EPA readies a long-awaited report on a class of health-damaging pollutants known as dioxins, we look at the biggest industrial dioxin sources in the U.S. -- and find that the South bears a disproportionate toxic burden. Six of the nation's top dioxin-emitting facilities are in Alabama, five are in Louisiana, four are in Texas and three are in North Carolina. Is there one near you?
As environmental health advocates call on Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson to release a long-awaited report on the health impact of dioxins, an analysis by Facing South finds that Southern communities bear a disproportionate burden of industrial dioxin pollution.

At least two people were killed and major damage caused by early-morning tornadoes in the Birmingham, Ala. area today. Meanwhile, the local newspaper examines the red tape slowing construction of public storm shelters.
