Watch: Sam Champion Dives Inside 'Toxic Soup' of Oil Spill


Sam Champion and Philippe Cousteau, Jr. went diving inside the oil spill to give people a different perspective of the disaster.


And here's more on BP trying to cover up what they wrought: "According to two surviving crew members of the Deepwater Horizon, oil workers from the rig were held in seclusion on the open water for up to two days after the April 20 explosion, while attorneys attempted to convince them to sign legal documents stating that they were unharmed by the incident. The men claim that they were forbidden from having any contact with concerned loved ones during that time, and were told they would not be able to go home until they signed the documents they were presented with."

  1. Just horrifying. And astonishing reporting by Sam unlike anything he's ever done before.

  2. Absolutely unbelievable that WE allowed something like this to happen.

  3. Heartbreaking.

    We are 100% OWNED by corportations, and that includes government. They are the Kings and we are the lowly, powerless peasants. If you think differetly, you have not been paying any attention for the past century, but esp. the past 40 years (howdy's Beelzebub doing today?). We all need to ask ourselves WHOM are we supporting every single time we fill up our gas tanks, or use any energy that comes from fossil fuels (death), instead of solar or wind (life).

  4. There is no real silver lining in this disaster. But for one thing, it has encouraged me to reduce driving my car a lot. (I've driven it 4 times since the week of the spill - mostly to go out of town.) It's been bike and public transport for me. It may be the tiniest middle finger I can give to Big Oil, but it's something and it makes me feel a little better. I encourage others to do the same.

  5. I guess all the tree huggers were right! This is like nothing I have seen in my lifetime. It reads more like one of those cheesy 2012 doomsday shows on History Channel or Discovery.
