Angela: Four years after BP spill, people are still sick
It's been four years to the month and the story not being told by many about the BP oil spill is about formerly healthy people now seriously ill from the use of dispersants in the aftermath of the spill.
A new movie “Restoration” tells their heart-breaking story.
THE RESTORATION from Drew Landry on Vimeo.
Today I talked to the filmmaker and songwriter Drew Landry and Dr. Mike Robichaux, who has seen healthy people disabled after contact with oil dispersants used in the cleanup. We we very fortunate to have "On Wings of Care" founder Bonny Schumaker as well.
So, why’s BP not paid a penny for these people's care? Should they be held accountable?
In addition to lives lost on the rig, the oil spill has had far reaching effects on the environment, sea life, animals, wetlands, and people.
What should happen to BP for this neglect? Who should pay for the pain, suffering and damaged lives?
