Oh little girl, you are so misinformed. Oil companies do not hate the environment. BP did not intend a disaster, nor is BP solely responsible (Oceanair is too). It was not a spill, but an explosion that killed 11 people and injured at least 17 more. Keep your mother and kindergarten logic out of this.

Smart girl. She’s right on. It has nothing to do with whether BP “intended a disaster” or “hates the environment.” Not relevant. BP IS responsible for having a contingency plan, and they failed in this. It’s exactly the type of basic Plan B that every responsible mom thinks about. It’s been well reported that BP had NO plan in place and NO real capabilities for dealing with a well blowout that far down in the ocean. So yes, it was an accident, but BP was 100% responsible for turning an accident into a disaster. But if Mousuke wants to teach his/her kids that it’s OK to do whatever you want without thinking about the consequences, that’s his/her problem.

Michelle, where did I say that it’s okay to “do whatever you want without thinking about the consequences”? Please point it out to me because I certainly don’t remember writing that. Having several family members who work for BP, I can say that there is a lot of information that the press is turning a blind eye to, and that the politics and details of the spill are 10x more complicated than most people realize. BP IS following up responsibly to the situation and HAS been acting very conscientiously. In fact, BP has been behaving MORE conscientiously than the environmental programs involved (though the EPA will never admit this in order to save face). Is this the worst “spill” of all time? Yes. But the company IS following up appropriately and taking responsibility. The skills that BP is learning from this experience will be studied and applied by every other participant in the oil business to ensure that this never happens again.

Thank you, Mousuke, for that information. It’s foolish to rely on only one source of information. The public hasn’t been privy to what you know, so thank you for sharing.
