“You of course remember the BP oil spill?” she asks. “This is a slow drip kind of change in the system thats been happening over decades, but it's just as consequential.”

Chiefly remembered as a stick to beat the British with.

In Louisiana, 4,900,000 pounds (2,200 t) of oily material was removed from the beaches in 2013, over double the amount collected in 2012. 

...  In his 15 June speech, Obama said, "... We will make BP pay for the damage their company has caused. ... Interior Secretary Ken Salazar stated, "Our job basically is to keep the boot on the neck of British Petroleum."[286]

And we will do whatever's necessary to help the Gulf Coast and its people recover from this tragedy."[285] Interior Secretary Ken Salazar stated, "Our job basically is to keep the boot on the neck of British Petroleum."[286] Some observers suggested that the Obama administration was being overly aggressive in its criticisms, which some BP investors saw as an attempt to deflect criticism of his own handling of the crisis.[287]
