The Deepwater Horizon, an oil rig located in the Gulf of Mexico, exploded on 4/20/2010 and dumping over 210 million gallons of oil. 🐟🐠🐡🐳
Oil from the explosion is credited for killing w/in 6 months of the spill, over 8,000 animals – many on the endangered list (turtles and birds) there is no current calculation for how many aquatic species were harmed. (And 11 humans or whatever)
Some lesser known #funfacts,
Charges were levied by the DOI against certain MMS offices for taking gifts from BP during the drilling operation and for falsifying safety inspection reports. (This is after The Interior Department of the US found MMS at fault for failing to conduct a review of the BP Deepwater operations for potential environmental impact as they apparently didn’t think that an oil spill was likely)
The owners of the Deepwater rig, Transocean Ltd., made a large profit on the disaster. Unlike the MMS office they were very aware of the risks of an accident. The company insured the rig for twice what it was worth and collected $270 million dollars when it exploded. 🐙🐙🎉🎉
Table of Abbreviations:
MMS-> minerals management service
BP -> British petroleum (named after merger with amoco (formally standard oil of indianna))
DOI -> department of the interior

Every time I go into a thrift store, I am reminded that there is more than enough of almost anything that we need or want. It just may be in another form.
People always tell me that we need more manufacturing jobs to sustain a good economy. I disagree.
We need more REmanufacturing jobs to sustain a good economy... and a good planet. We don't need to use up more of our natural resources to create raw materials. There are plenty of materials right here in front of us.
