On April 20th, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded off the Gulf of Mexico, killing eleven BP workers and spewing 200 million barrels of oil into the ocean. DIRTY ENERGY brings to light the personal stories of the Louisiana fishermen and local residents directly impacted by the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history. Filmmaker Bryan D. Hopkins gains intimate access to the lives and homes of these people, as they struggle to rebuild their lives and contend with emerging health crises related to the toxic dispersants used to clean up the spill. DIRTY ENERGY paints a poignant portrait of the human cost of the calamity, and the systematic failure by BP and the U.S. Government to effectively and transparently manage the environmental impact.

Average life span of Exxon Valdez worker was 51 year old. Infact, everyone who worked on the cleanup of Exxon Valdez is dead. OSHA does not recognize colds or flues which are the hazards of oil spill cleanup. That one sentence which allows the spiller not to report colds and flues releases any oil company from any chemical induced illness which is not recognized by OSHA. Exxon was able to reduce the five billion dollar liability to five hundred million after some twenty years of court proceeding and a final Supreme Court decision which paid ten cents on the dollar to the fishermen. Once again, after some twenty years of legal proceeding with fishermen pilling up huge financial bills, debts and still millions of gallons of oil all around Valdez, some one foot below the grade. Oil industry learned that controlling the images means limiting liability since public perception is everything. That twenty billion dollar by BP in Gulf is down to five billion dollars due to lessons learned by oil companies not by the residents of this country.
Delusion is a solution to pollution. Fishing is the second oldest profession in the world. How oil industry, coast guard, governors, presidents work together against one industry like fishing and a clean environment and a healthy marine life is what this documentary is all about without any fan fair. Painful, emotional and a sad reality of human greed although the ones in charge happen to be the Democrats, the environmental group. What an absolute joke, Gores writes about issues which he has no knowledge of and gets hundreds of five star reviews but oil spills and fishermen get none.
