LONDON (Reuters) - BP must keep paying certain types of oil spill compensation in much larger amounts and to more parties than it was expecting, according to a court ruling this week, which could add billions of dollars to its final bill.
The March 5 ruling, made by the New Orleans court where it is battling to keep a lid on other fines and penalties, was outlined in BP's annual report. It widens the gulf between the company and those ranged against it inside and outside the court. BP said it would appeal.

This pisses me off so bad. White collar criminals are destroying the world and getting away with it, while we're living in fear of getting busted for growing a plant which actually is one of the few sensible ways left to not destroying the world.
Will we ever be able to stand up against this before it's too late? How can we, with everything around us being constructed and manipulated in such a way to keep the majority of people dumb and doing exactly what they want, eg work and consume and then die a costly early death by cancer from all the toxins we are being fed?
The 10% richest people on the planet should be put in front of a wall and shot without any trial, they've all got a hand in this one way or another no doubt. The mass-scale exploitation of the human race by greedy capitalist bastards must end.

A federal trial to determine responsibility and how much oil actually spilled from the Deepwater Horizon rig continues in New Orleans. While executives testify, scientists are trying to solve a mystery: Where millions of gallons of oil actually went.

In 2010, the Deepwater Horizon oil rig disaster in the Gulf of Mexico killed 11 crew members and spilled more than 200 million gallons of oil. Oceanographers think much of that was processed by microbes, but government assessments couldn’t show exactly where all the oil went.

Florida State University oceanography professor Jeff Chanton recently presented a hypothesis at the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill and Ecosystem Science Conference. He suggested that the oil spill acted like a catalyst, causing plankton and other materials on the ocean surface to bind together and fall to the sea floor en masse. Chanton and his colleagues called this massive sedimentation a “dirty blizzard.”

The dirty blizzard could explain why ocean water that would normally be clouded with plankton strangely appeared clean during the oil spill. Those suspensions had instead turned to streams that were falling to the ocean floor. Scientists presenting at the conference in New Orleans think the dirty blizzard helped the oil mix with seafloor sediments, potentially accounting for about a third of the spilled oil.

Chanton and his fellow ocean scientists say they will continue their research to determine how much oil ended up on the seafloor. While they do, the federal trial continues in New Orleans. The trial’s first phase will determine responsibility and the second will focus on how much oil spilled, the New York Times reported. Earlier this week, the CEO of Transocean, the company that leased the rig to BP testified that the crew could have done more to prevent the spill.

Determining blame may end up being just as hard as tracking down all the oil. When it comes to spills, everything tends to get slippery.
