BP

BP logo

BP claim that they are “beyond petroleum”. But this is a company that is up to its neck in the dirtiest oil going - poised to invest in the Canadian tar sands and causing environmental catastrophe through deepwater drilling. Their nice green logo doesn't really seem to fit them too well, so we ran a competition to find a logo that we could use to rebrand BP.

World's worst oil spills

The BP Gulf oil spill is the worst ever when you combine its size and location. While it may not be the biggest, as you can see from the graphic, it certainly will be one of the most economically damaging and costly, simply because it occurred in some of America's most productive waters.

Oil spill - Louisiana shores

Dragonfly - Louisiana oil spill 2010

Over one month after the initial explosion and sinking of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig, crude oil continues to flow into the Gulf of Mexico, and oil slicks have slowly reached as far as 12 miles into Louisiana's marshes. According to Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, more than 65 miles of Louisiana's shoreline has now been oiled. BP said it will be at least Wednesday before they will try using heavy mud and cement to plug the leak, a maneuver called a “top kill” that represents their best hope of stopping the oil after several failed attempts. Based on low estimates, at least 6 million gallons of crude have spewed into the Gulf so far - though some scientists have said they believe the spill already surpasses the 11 million-gallon 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill off Alaska as the worst in U.S. history.

Oil reaches Louisiana shores

What a mess. How long before we decide to stop all this for real?
