It is not effective to try to take BP to court.
You can't sue any entity in a court which they own and are there to protect them. The entire corporate government, USA inc., has mobilized to protect, cover up, exploit for corporate profits and to protect it's principals and varied assets from liability.
You can't "fix" a broken system using any of it's broken parts.
The "system" is doing exactly what it's designed to do: exploit and profit for it's owners. If the people benefit from what anything the Government corporation does it's either by design for increased future profits or by accident.
If the environment is destroyed it's the simply the cost of doing business. The environment and natural resources are assets to be exploited by the corporation.

Is it possible we could collectively SUE BP?

Really is that all people think about is getting money for nothing?
How could BP, a company that has made being green a core part of its identity, even rebranding itself as "Beyond Petroleum," suffer within one year both the worst oil spill in the history of the North Slope and the worst U.S. refinery accident in more than a decade?
And how did CEO John Browne, the energy visionary who publicly broke with his industry to acknowledge a possible link between emissions and global warming, earning a prominent spot in Vanity Fair's recent green issue, become a scapegoat for Big Oil?
