Some good news at least, there often is not much of it when oil companies are in the news.

Noted and promising. Will Louisiana and Mississippi follow suit any time soon?

Why did it take so long, especially if they had been thinking about it for decades?

Excellent to read of salt marsh preserved - the Gulf Coast needs more restoration and protection

This appears to be a step in the right direction. Let's hope there are no more oil spills however.
