On April 20, 2010, the largest environmental disaster in US history began when the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded and started gushing hundreds of millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf. More than 3 years later, the Gulf is still suffering from the lasting effects of the oil. This is a living disaster, and it will be years — even decades — before we understand the full impacts of the BP oil spill.

On September 30, 2013, phase two of the BP trial began in New Orleans. This video was broadcast LIVE outside the courthouse on constant loop on a 16-foot, high definition, LED billboard on September 30 and October 1 in an effort to highlight the ongoing need for restoration and to publicly hold BP accountable.

This effort is a product of National Wildlife Federation, Environmental Defense Fund, National Audubon Society and Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation.
