HOUSTON/VENICE, Louisiana (Reuters) - Anger, skepticism and accusations of lying washed over energy giant BP Plc on Friday as it desperately tried to contain a month-old seabed well leak billowing crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico.

Lawmakers and scientists have accused BP of trying to conceal what many believe is already the worst U.S. oil spill, eclipsing the 1989 Exxon Valdez accident in Alaska. It represents a potential environmental and economic catastrophe for the U.S. Gulf coast.
