BP's weasel words immoral
Re: BP report spreads blame for oil spill, Sept. 08, 2010
After consistently minimizing the scope of the ecological disaster its
reckless offshore drilling practices produced in the Gulf of Mexico --
going so far as to amateurishly Photoshop images then trying to palm
them off as authentic -- the energy giant is once again showing us its
feet of clay.
In ducking full responsibility for the April 20th Macondo oil well
disaster that poured crude oil equal to 34 Exxon Valdezes into the
gulf, leaving behind one generation's worth of clean-up effort, BP's
leadership is displaying a moral deficit that matches its woeful
I expect this corporate weasel will deny any responsibility in the
months and years ahead after the impact to the health of thousands of
coastal residents becomes apparent from the wide contamination of air,
water, and soil caused by the oil spill.
