The website was to rate it America's worst man-made environmental disaster in history — worse than the Exxon-Valdez oil spill, worse than the Three Mile Island nuclear accident.

Actually, no. The long term environmental effects from the Exxon Valdez and the BP Oil rig disaster will continue to have consequences long after we've been put back together. None of the entities responsible have taken full responsibility or made everyone affected whole again, and that's the biggest disaster within the disaster.
