Well, that's human nature for you. Cover up, lie. Isn't that how it usually goes?
Before I go on a semi-rant here, star and flag for you OP for the thread and story.
But I mean seriously. Big companies are GREAT at one thing: Do whatever it takes, the cheapest way to maximize profits.
A valve which cost what, 500K which wouldn't even put a dent in the companies profits wasn't installed, something which could have diverted this
disaster. Why? Like I said above, do it the cheapest way to maximize profits.
It's only when SHTF that a company is held responsible it seems. It's like, companies get to do whatever they want free from insight until
something happens. Then it's, "You've been a bad boy!". I mean come on.
Now it's not just the companies fault, it's also the governments for not ensuring that they (the company) is doing everything it can to ensure stuff
like this can't happen.
I get so fed up with big oil businesses and the governments who succle at their teet. Especially when things go wrong and end up destroying the very
precious surroundings (and life within it) around us.
