    Washington (CNN) -- The first criminal charges have been filed in connection with the BP Gulf of Mexico oil disaster two years ago, the Justice Department said Tuesday.

    Former BP engineer Kurt Mix was arrested in Texas on two counts of intentionally destroying evidence requested by authorities, specifically the alleged deletions of messages focusing on work to stem the oil flow.

    Charges were filed in Louisiana against Mix, 50, of Katy, Texas. He was scheduled to appear in a Houston courtroom at 3 p.m. EDT.

    The BP oil spill (2010) was the first major corporation environmental disaster since Chernobyl (1986) and the Exxon oil spill (1989).

    Many efforts have been taken to curtail the damage and manage the publicity. However, in our age of industrialization and free market politicization, it was added to the list of ecosystem mismanagement cases by business-related activity.

    Algeria, a member of OPEC, has been rapidly developing eco-friendly wind farms and is arguably ahead of the USA in wind energy research. News about 'eco-business' should really be the hallmark of modern media.

    There is satisfactory information on Wikipedia (the online world encyclopedia) regarding BP activities since and surrounding the oil spill.

    You mean he was arrested for what the IRS has been doing? (sorry, just couldn't help myself). I will go away now.

    The gulf has healed. Oil is a natural substance. Fish, shrimp, crabs, oysters are all back and safe and plentiful. The marsh has healed.

    Yes, BP should pay for their negligence, but it did not destroy the gulf as many of you libtardians were hoping.

    Why not go down and talk to the people that live on the gulf coast that was mostly affected. Get information from a source other than BP.

    Oh please the left was drooling over using this accident to fuel their anti-oil drilling agenda. The left needs to get this through their thick Neanderthal skulls, you are not nearly as clever as you think you are.
