Gulf fisherman George Barisich, who worked on the clean-up crew, explains how BP used the toxic dispersant Corexit, which was banned in Europe, to quickly disperse the visible oil. “It was a gamble.” NOAA and the Coast Guard were proponents of its use. High level BP stockholders also had a stake in the Corexit company.
‘Dirty Energy’ gets the inside story from Grand Isle Louisiana residents—people whose jobs and health have been directly impacted by the April 2010 Gulf Oil Spill, the worst environmental disaster in American history. The film explores the biological cost of having millions of gallons of oil and toxic dispersants dumped into the ecosystem and exposes the collusion between BP and the U.S. Government in the clean up process. dirtyenergymovie.com | facebook.com/dirtyenergy | #dirtyenergy #bigoil
