Abstract: For nearly three months, oil from the British Petroleum spill has been plaguing the Gulf of Mexico. This is yet another environmental catastrophe. The images the world receives from the media speak for themselves. The editors of International Journal of Critical Accounting, once again, express their concerns about these issues of environmental accountability. The damage created by big corporations (Goliaths) never ends. We discuss the BP and other big spills in Africa and Asia, and invite researchers to submit their work on climate change to IJCA.

Keywords: environmental accounting; environmental accountability; BP oil spill; British Petroleum; Shell; oil companies; climate change; Gulf of Mexico; environmental pollution; oil spills.
