After Massachusetts representative Ed Markey requested more transparency from BP about the scope of the ongoing oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, company officials granted public access to a live camera at the spill site. The video now streams live at the website of Markey’s Select Committee on Energy Independent and Global Warming.
As a warning, the video seems to go down intermittently, as the feed is slammed by traffic from around the world.
BP has been fighting to clean up the gusher for more than a month now. The spill was created when a BP-leased oil rig, the Deepwater Horizon, exploded and sank on April 22.
