Petition to Suspend Shoddy BP Atlantis
Food & Water Watch launched a campaign today to shut down BP Atlantis, another oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico that reportedly has the potential to create an even more catastrophic disaster than the recent Horizon breakdown.
BP Atlantis began production in 2007, and a year and a half later, reports surfaced that the operation was missing 89% of its required engineering certification for piping and shutdown systems. It is the largest and deepest submerged oil platform in the world.
As the broken well at BP Horizon continues to spew an estimated 146 gallons of oil a minute into the Gulf, take a minute here to sign Food & Water's petition at spillthetruth.org.
