14-Year Oil Spill Shows No Signs of Slowing

A massive 14-Year oil spill off the coast of Louisiana has been growing steadily for 14 years, as the company is suing the government to end its responsibility to the cleanup of the site.

Since Hurricane Ivan bowled over an oil rig belonging to Taylor Energy in 2004, the site has been spewing between 300 to 700 barrels of oil a day into the Gulf of Mexico.

It could continue leaking oil into the ocean through this century, and the spill is on track to become one of the worst in U.S. history.

Michael Kunzelman, a reporter with the Associated Press, has been reporting on the Taylor oil spill for years.
