All We Need Is A Hero
Sunday is Earth Day! And two years ago today, an explosion on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in the Gulf Coast caused a massive spill which flowed unabated for three months—an warning about unintended consequences of technology, human ingenuity, and the ‘elements’. This infographic is a thought-experiment which considers the sum of oil ‘unharnessed’, or spilled, during the three months it took BP to finally cap the well and is a lens to the magnitude of the oil industry and the global energy infrastructure.
Don’t despair! Make an environment-conscious pledge at Earth Day. Many low-impact solutions become a big-impact solution!
