Jul 23, 2010

A just-published investigative piece by McClatchy Washington reporter Andrew Seidman reveals that a culture of complacency, perversely fostered by improvements in oil drillers’ ability to contain spills, was a major factor leading to the BP catastrophe.

Tampa attorney Steve Yerrid, who has been appointed by Florida Governor Charlie Crist as Special Counsel to advise him and the state on oil spill matters, is quoted in this piece.
