Summary
On April 20th 2010 the Deepwater Horizon, a Transocean-owned, BP-leased oil rig exploded. The blaze claimed the lives of 11 workers and the uncapped well gushed for 87 days pouring an estimated 4.2 million barrels of oil into the sea. It is considered the worst man-made environmental disaster in US history. The residents of Grand Isle, the last inhabited barrier island off the coast of Louisiana, thought they were living in paradise until the BP oil spill hit their shores. Ecocide uses testimony from this island community to reveal the devastating repercussions that continue to plague them. No community along the Gulf Coast was hit harder by the oil disaster than Grand Isle, Louisiana, a blue-collar fishing village perched on a spit of sand 50 miles south of New Orleans. The beach community was right in the path of the disaster{u2019}s toxic crude and deadly chemical dispersants. How has this island community come to terms with the worst man-made ecological disaster in US history?
