Looks like BP are starting to sell off parts of the company. See this I think is a bit of a concern. If BP becomes controlled by the Chinese oil company (which is government owned), I wonder how easy it will be for the US government to enforce payment for cleanup.

Afterall, what if the Chinese turn around and say we will just take it out of the trillions of debt of yours we already own...

Nuclear Plant Has Been Leaking For Four Years

According to the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Entergy Corp has allowed highly radioactive waste to leak into a contained area at the FitzPatrick nuclear power plant for the last four years.

The FitzPatrick plant is near Oswego, New York, but the NRC has said that the leak "poses no immediate risks to any residents or the environment."
