A good movie on BP and the oil spill. Below is the official website of the documentary, but it doesn’t really give you a sense of what the documentary is actually about. Trust me though, it is really good. Source: http://www.thebigfixmovie.com/

This article outlines how BP is trying to fight the claims process. Just keep in mind, no matter what they are saying, the claims process is still alive and businesses are still receiving claims payments.

Interesting article. This is just another attempt by BP to “slow down” the momentum of businesses filing BP claims.
