BP Pledges $20 billion to Escrow fund:
[DEAL REACHED: BP has agreed to finance a $20 billion escrow fund to pay claims to people who lost income in the Gulf Coast oil spill, an administration source tells POLITICO. Kenneth Feinberg, who was in charge of payments to families of victims of the 9/11 attacks, will oversee the fund.]
I note that this agreement appears to be only for lost income claims. There is NOTHING in this agreement on the attack to the environment.
