BPOn earth day I wrote “Trustees of the planet”,  since then things have gotten even worse. Oil is gushing from the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico and it has us all pretty concerned.  We trusted the people drilling offshore to do it right.  We now have a disaster of epic proportions. The slick is having devastating effects on the ecosystem and economy in the region. We do not yet know how bad it will get, or how long it will last, or who we should hold accountable. Who is responsible for this mess? BP and its subcontractors testified in Congress that the other person was responsible, it was so bad that even the President of the United States made a comment about the finger-pointing.  BP seems to lack the resources to stop the flow or clean up the oil that has already leaked. The well continues to spew from the ocean floor weeks after the accident.  I have heard BP CEO Tony Hayward say to the media that BP would clean this up and compensate the people for their losses. I have also heard him say the spill was relatively small compared to the volume of water in the Gulf, ouch! So is BP doing the right thing? Are they doing the best they can? Was it their subcontractors, or perhaps even the government to blame? One official, Chris Oynes, Associate Director of Offshore Energy and Minerals Management Program retired a month early, was he responsible?  What do you think about BP? Do you trust them?
