BP is one of the world’s largest energy companies. It reported a profit of about six billion dollars in the first three months of this year. That was more than double compared to a year ago.
Now, BP faces growing political pressure over the worst oil spill in American history．Oil has been flowing from its damaged well in the Gulf of Mexico for almost seven weeks.
But the company formerly called British Petroleum also faces growing financial pressure. Investors fear the long-term costs for cleanup, recovery and fines. BP’s market value fell more than sixty billion dollars as its share price fell by as much as a third.
On Thursday BP was finally able to cut a damaged pipe m the well using robotic vehicles. The cut was not exactly as hoped, but it was progress. Crews then turned to placing a cap over the pipe-not to stop it，but to direct at least some of the oil to ships on the surface. The leak is about l,500 meters under the sea.
Yet it may not be fully controlled before August, it Workers are drilling two relief, wells in an effort to ease pressure on the damaged well.
By some estimates the cost of the cleanup could reach 37 billion dollars.
The owner of the rig(钻井架)， Swiss company Transocean，has been asked to have its responsibility limited to 27 million dollars. The request is based on a law from l85l. But the Justice Department says that isn’t enough.
Oil has already reached more than l00 kilometers of coastline in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. And it threatens the west coast of Florida.

LONDON/SAN FRANCISCO-The Sydney Opera House to San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge went dark as people switched off lights in their homes and skylines dimmed around the world on Saturday to show concern about global warming.
Up to 30 million people were expected to have turned off their lights for 60 minutes by the time “Earth Hour” which started in Suva in Fiji and Christchurch in New Zealand—completed its cycle westward More than 380 towns and cities and 3,500 businesses in 35 countries signed up for the campaign that is in its second year after it began in 2007 in Sydney, Australia's largest city.
“Earth Hour” shows that every day people are prepared to pull together to find a solution to climate change. It can be done,” said James Leape of WWF international, which was running the campaign.
Lights at Sydney’s Opera House and Harbors Bridge were lowered as Australians held candle-lit beach parties, played poker by candlelight and floated candles down rivers.
In Bangkok, some of the city‘s business districts shopping malls and billboards went dark, although street lights stayed on. One major hotel invited guests to dine by candle light and reported brisk business.
In Copenhagen, the Tivoli Gardens and the Royal Palace and the opera darkened for an hour along with many streetlights.
“In the central square a lot of people were standing looking at the stars,” said Ida Thuesen, spokeswoman for WWF Denmark. “It’s not often you can see the stars in a city.”
“It is not just about turning off the lights, it is about raising awareness,” San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom said. “Energy efficiency is low-hanging fruit. Energy efficiency is the easiest thing we can do to reduce global warming.”
Buildings account for about one-third of the carbon emissions that scientists say will boost global average temperatures by between l.4 and 4.0 degrees Celsius this century, bringing floods and famines and putting millions of lives at risk. Organizers of Earth Hour said that while switching off a light for one hour would have little impact on carbon emissions, the fact that so many people were taking part showed how much interest and concern about the climate crisis had taken hold. They said they planned a similar event March 28, 2009.
