Hindsight 2020: Lessons We Cannot Ignore from the BP Disaster

Ten years after one of the worst environmental disasters in U.S. history, this short documentary examines the cause and impacts of the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster; how those impacts are still being felt today; and whether the disaster changed the government and industry’s approach to offshore drilling. To answer these questions, Oceana reviewed government documents, media coverage, scientific studies, reports from nonprofit organizations and interviewed Gulf Coast residents, scientists, business owners and policy experts. The findings were included in an interactive report which included a short documentary in five chapters.
