An oil platform exploded and burned off the Louisiana coast Thursday. Last year a story like this would not have made national news, however, following on the heels of the BP Deepwater Horizion disaster people are taking notice. Above is a video of Press Secretary Robert Gibbs explaining the details of the newest gulf coast oil explosion. Thankfully, this incident had a substantially different outcome than the BP Gulf Coast disaster. All the rig workers escaped alive and there is no new oil spill.
