Planet 100: Oil Minefield in the Gulf of Mexico

There are 27,000 abandoned oil & gas wells in the Gulf of Mexico and according to an Associated Press investigation nobody, and that includes government and industry is checking to see if any of those wells are leaking.

Furthermore, a 2001 study commissioned by the now infamous MMS agency clearly stated that they were... "concerned that some abandoned oil wells in the Gulf may be leaking crude oil." Despite that warning, nothing was done to follow up on that concern.
