Why are you all bitching about BP?
What is the problem with this site all of a sudden?
Did we all forget to deny ignorance recently?
The Deepwater drilling rig was owned by an AMERICAN company: uk.ask.com...
The rig was under lease to BP until 2013 from an AMERICAN company.
It was being operated by AMERICANS at the time of the disaster...
So why is it that the BRITISH are responsible?
Every thread I have looked at related to this issue blames the British and British Petroleum for this disaster.
The Rig was built by Hyundai.
The Blowout Preventor that caused the problem wasn't built by the British...
So why are the British people being blamed?
What about the South Koreans who built the rig?
What about the Americans who run the rig, or the AMERICANS that owned the rig?
It seems like a case of scapegoats to me...
It is humanity that is to blame. It is all of us, our dependence on oil, and refusal to demand cleaner forms of technology. Greed is to blame, and our
refusal to be selfless. We are to blame for not encouraging one another to buy a bycicle, or to walk to work, instead of using the car. For buying a
polyvinylchloride waterproof coat instead of a natural fibre one.
Rocket science it aint.
