Overview

“How BP Oiled the Gulf” is an illustrated book written in the style of a children’s book that takes a humorous look at a serious subject by telling the story as if told to a child.

The cast of characters: BP managers, Tony Hayward, TV news people, birds and turtles, a judge, scientists, tiny oil-eating microbes, President Obama, Ken Feinberg, and people living near the spill.

This is a satirical romp through the seemingly endless oil spill drama of the summer of 2010 off the coast of Louisiana, and the reactions of everyone involved. Follow along from the accident on the Deepwater Horizon drilling platform to the final capping of the leak. Enjoy 50 funny hand-drawn illustrations, done in comic book style.

Through satire, the book draws attention to how the policies and actions of big institutions we all deal with – corporations, government, scientific organizations – are always going to be subject to the failings and idiosyncrasies of the people who run them.

Meet the Author

David Welsh was born in Michigan and has lived there all his life. He has been a photographer, writer and software designer/programmer. David co-authored "Priming the Pump: How TRS-80 Enthusiasts Helped Spark the PC Revolution" with his wife, Theresa Welsh, about their experiences in the early software business.

The concept for this book and most of the text came in one afternoon after watching CNN coverage of the oil spill. Even though the text of this book is written as though for children and the facts are filtered through a child’s point of view, a fair amount of research went into it.

Amy Welsh currently resides in New York City with two very large cats who know nothing about the BP oil spill. She was very excited to work on this project with her parents. She is a writer, artist and performer. You can see more of her work on her website at www.DetRiotGirl.com
