Hurricane Isaac showed that much of BP’s oil remains in the soils and just below the waters of the Gulf, even in many areas the Coast Guard has begun to let BP off the hook for cleanup. BP should be cleaning up their mess, and the Coast Guard should be holding them responsible for it.
The large amount of tarballs, tarmats, and oil coming ashore in areas that saw some of the most severe damage in 2010 and 2011 are clearly BP’s responsibility, but the Coast Guard has allowed BP to question that fact in many areas, slowing response time by requiring unnecessary steps to drag out the process.
