The March 14 issue of the New Yorker has a great article on the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Raffi Khatchadourian's "The Gulf War" is not available freely online (though an abstract is)but worth tracking down in print at your local library. Having watched Anderson Cooper report on the oil spill it was interesting to read this behind the scenes account that often referenced CNN's coverage. EPA boss Lisa Jackson also makes several appearances in the narrative. It's interesting to read a recap now that a little time has passed.
