Sophia Bush has called on environmental authorities in the U.S. to do more to help clear up the BP oil spill affecting the Gulf because the situation is "not getting better".

The "One Tree Hill" star has been campaigning to raise funds for the victims of the BP mess since a rig ruptured in April. She has been traveling back and forth to Louisiana since the summer to keep tabs on the clean-up progress, but she fears the problems in the Gulf are fast being forgotten about because they are no longer in the headlines.

She says, "It's not good. People want to say that things are better and that things have cleared up, but it's not true. We've stayed in contact with local officials, with local fisherman, a whole bunch of people down there. Things are not getting better…"

So Bush has taken it upon herself to generate funds for the cause, releasing compilation album Gasoline Rainbows with her boyfriend and TV co-star Austin Nichols. And she's already seeing the cash roll in for charity from online sales of the disc, which includes songs by Vampire Weekend, LCD Soundsystem and Phoenix.

She adds, "We made this album to raise money and it's doing well."

You can get a copy of the album on iTunes.
