It was one year ago Wednesday that the Deepwater Horizon oil drilling platform operated by British Petroleum exploded and sank, killing 11 men before gushing roughly 170 million gallons of crude oil into the gulf. One year later, the cleanup continues, gulf coast economies are still struggling to recover, and environmentalists remain skeptical about the measures to restore the Gulf.
