i think this is disgusting there given them selves massive

bonuses over safety

The Deepwater Horizon exploded on 20 April 2010. In the days and months that followed millions of gallons of oil poured unabated into the Gulf of Mexico, prompting President Barack Obama to call the incident America's environmental 9/11.

Before the well was capped in July, the spill fouled the coastlines of four states, scared tourists away and closed countless fishing grounds. The true environmental and economic impact may not be known for years.

A presidential commission concluded that the explosion had been caused by cost-cutting and directly blamed Transocean, BP and Halliburton for the disaster.

Despite that, Transocean handed out huge bonuses to its executives citing the company's best year for safety ever.

Indeed. But I can tell you that morals do not even enter the equation. Having grown up around oilmen, I do not find this surprising in the least. Repugnant, absolutely. But not surprising at all.

It is beyond shameful, but it is a cut-throat business, and the sooner it is relegated to obsolescence, the better for all.
