Most of us have by now seen the happy, sunny commercials BP has sprinkled across the television landscape in the past few months, welcoming Americans back to the beaches in Florida, Louisiana, and other southern coasts affected by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the spring of 2010.
The ads sponsored by BP feature state and local officials who are obviously relieved that predictions of oil contamination along the coastlines never reached the levels some had initially predicted. They show lovely beaches, and remind viewers that the BP oil spill could have been much, much worse.
