As the one year anniversary of the heartbreaking Gulf disaster approaches on April 20th, the world reflects on the on the tragic effects along with the changes that have been implemented to improve the drastic damage that the spill caused.
BP has taken into effect many company changes since taking the heat and responsibility for the oil spill and damage. Many top executives lost their job and were replaced because of the disaster and today Bob Dudley controls the CEO position. The company continues to settle the many suits they had placed upon them for the people who lost their lives in the attempt to rectify the situation aboard the Deepwater Horizon.
While reports do claim that the overall health of the ocean is almost back to normal a year after the events, many are not as optimistic that the health key indicators such as the sea floor, dolphins, and oysters will continue to improve. Researchers believe it will take years to get to the point we were at before the tragic spill occurred. This continues to outrage many people who know and understand the prevention methods that could have been taken by BP to completely avoid the situation all together.
