I did a quick search and did not find this story being discussed here on ATS.

I saw this in a local news story a couple of days ago. They interviewed the lawyer who obtained the document when representing the Texas BP refinery explosion that killed 15 workers.

Here's the document.



EXCLUSIVE: This internal BP document shows how the company took deadly risks to save money by opting to build cheaper facilities for workers. The company estimated the value of a worker's life at $10 million.

I would suggest that the CT authors on ATS should start looking at this oil spill as a deliberate attack, an act of war, on the United States.

The Queen wants the US in the commonwealth.

I don't think people are ready to joke about this yet. Way to soon, thanks for trying to lighten things up though, its just not funny right now.

I don't think this is a joke... and it isn't funny.

news.yahoo.com...


The two-page document (which you can see at The Daily Beast) was originally found by attorney Brent Coon during the discovery phase of a suit against BP on behalf of families of workers killed in a 2005 refinery explosion in Texas City, Texas. It was prepared by BP's risk-management team in 2002 and is titled "Cost benefit analysis of three little pigs."




Incidentally, BP chose one of the lower-cost options, one 10 times cheaper than the blast-resistant structures. Outzen notes that all of the fatalities in the Texas City blast "occurred in or around the nine contractor trailers."

Saw it on CNN a week ago. I think it's hilarious, personally. Then again, I was making 9/11 jokes on 9/12, so...

Yes, thanks for that link.

If they think their employees are piggies, wonder what they think about the people on the Gulf?

Sorry. Not buying this one. It does have a link to a seeming legitimate story about a seeming legitimate lawyer who says he got this during discovery but I just don't believe it. Sorry.

gad, this is so clearly a joke that was probably going around the BP offices probably mocking their risk analyses program and people actually are taking it as serious???
