    BP sued by Ecudorian group for crimes against nature.

    Those are fish. I thought it was a backwater road, but those are fish.

    Washington Post wrote:A suit filed in Ecuador charges the oil giant BP with "violating the rights of Nature" for the gulf oil spill, Democracy Now reports. Filed by a group of environmentalists, the suit charges BP with harming the ocean. The Ecuadorian constitution recognizes the rights of nature across the globe.

    An NPR report shows that of the 4 million barrels that flowed into the ocean, much of it sunk to the bottom of the gulf, where it remains today.

    In other BP news, the company is venturing into film-making with a new feature length film about the Deepwater Horizon spill. The company told the New York Times it was for an internal audience at BP -- and not to burnish their tarnished reputation. BP has already made about 190 short documentaries for its Web site.
    Sauce.

    I say finally. There's been no real legal action taken against BP for this, and there needs to be. This was a BIG BIG spill and a big big problem for the Gulf. Why the rest of the Gulf countries aren't doing more is beyond me.

    Despite my belief that this lawsuit won't lead to anything, I'm very happy it's being filed. At the very least it's keeping the spill fresh in everyone's minds.

    Ecuador has had an interesting history with oil companies.. they're also in a long heated suit against Exxon-Mobil over oil pits that are leaking into the Amazon... which they play the blame game on and fight like 6 year olds.
