Speaking of the oil (Petroleum) spill of the Deepwater Horizon platform, I found this post from Senator  Adriana González Carrillo (PAN-Party Elected). I want to recommend it! Her diagnostic is precise and I hope that she can, in her senatorial labor, make better laws on the issue.

If you prefer, even with less resolution than the newspaper site, you can download the complete article on PDF here: Who will pay the cost of the spill? (10.9 Mb, PDF format). Next, the original post from Senator González, in Spanish:
