Oh, So Now He Tells Us


BP CEO Tony Hayward nowadmits “we did not have the tools you would want in your tool-kit…”

Ya think?

Meanwhile, some people are actually floating, no pun intended, the idea of using anuclear bomb to try to stop the leak; thankfully, the administration isn’t seriously considering this “option.”

If a relatively simple piece of equipment like asaw can’t operate properly at the site, does anyone really think a nuclear bomb would? Good grief.

  1. He says it as if it’s entirely by accident, rather than note that he’s been boasting for years about increasing profits by not buying necessary equipment and hiring necessary people.
    If we can’t get him for mens rea, corporate responsibility is done.

  2. Funny how the folks floating the nuke idea only see the possible event that it may close the hole.
    They don’t see the potential for the nuclear byproducts to enter into the human and ecological supply chain. For that, I’ll be receptive and say you really have to look at the effects and choose the lesser of 2 evils.
    And really quite odd that they don’t see the potential that an explosion could actually make a bigger hole with more oil spilling out.
    It seems like they are practicing the same hubris that got us here in the first place. After all, technology can solve all and we are in total control.

  3. You know I just realized that I have been misinterpreting the idea of using that nuclear device to solve the problem. I just naturally assumed the nuclear device would be set off on the BP headquarters. That idea at least has some merit, as far as making it easier to fix the leaking oil problem.

    turn the casing into a molten dagger aimed right at the formation… like a shaped charge. That would open up the formation to where they could never shut it in.
    They can screw up for years and not equal that sort of destruction.
