Yea, it can be easy to forget that this happened. It was officially 4 years on April 20th when this tragedy happened that kept us on edge the whole summer. Whatever the validity of claims from either a pro-oil/corporate or environmentalist standpoint, there is NO way that over 200 million gallons of oil (a toxic substance by the way) can leak into the Gulf of Mexico and that everyone is totally fine now. People and animals are sick or have died from exposure to oil or chemical dispersants. I hope that we can at the VERY LEAST learn from this and not easily go into things for short term gain (think Keystone XL Pipeline) without truly listening to residents and the environment.
