BP’s Deepwater Horizon site is still leaking, according to recent trips to the site. See Stuart Smith, environmental lawyer, for the very latest on the investigation. One theory of interest, supported by oil industry expert Matt Simmons (RIP), is that the seafloor is damaged beyond repair. Matt Simmons details the NOAA investigation which discovered a gigantic “oil lake” at the bottom of the seafloor, which is the result of an open hole from which oil spews to this day. See video of that here.

Matt Simmons died of a heart attack a few weeks after this interview. This is probably why he describes ‘speaking out’ as courageous.
