Longtime oil industry champion now calls BP liars | Times-Picayune

A year after the Deepwater Horizon exploded 60 miles south of his Buras hunting and fishing lodge, Ryan Lambert can distill his opinion of BP and the oil industry down to one word: Liars.

"I’m sick of it, and I’m telling the whole country about it — on national TV, in magazines and in front of Congress." [read more]
