BP OIL DISASTERS -- Will They Never Learn ???

Post by WhoseYourWolfie on Sun Sep 11, 2016 4:39 am

affraid

NEVER ONE to rest on their laurels, BP is earnestly attempting to repeat the biggest man-made environmental disaster in human history (i.e. off of Texas, 2010)...

This time 'round, they're down in southern Australia..

When BP had to pay compensation for their oil spill the amount of false claims [by Americans] was staggering!

"BP believes that the oil and gas industry and marine environments can safely exist together and regular offshore drilling activity around the coastline of Australia is evidence of this," it said in a statement on Saturday.

No! Fish and sea life and birds that use and live in that stretch of water do not feel as though they're "safely existing together"
Especially when a bunch of them wind up dead covered in oil!

That wont surprise me at all nicky, we would do the same if given the chance.
Greenpeace seems to be non active nowadays, they cant stop most of the damage most Countries do to the environment but at least it
bought it to the publics attention.
If they could do it all on the quiet away from public knowledge they bloody would!


Idea

Greenpeace, and the more recent Sea Shepherd organisation, have been spending much of their time around the Pacific and Southern oceans in recent years...

Though, no doubt, you will see an increasing presence of protest organisations around the Arctic once the Ruskies, Cannucks, Yanks and Nordic/Viking hordes start sniffing around their respective oil fields..

YOU would imagine that if they knew a lot of claims were fraudulent, then most of them wouldn't ne paid out ?

AS WELL AS the compensation, there are also penalties against BP by American and Mexican authorities, and the ongoing cleanup and remediation costs --  I read yesterday that the total payout by BP has already passed US $40 billion..  That must be a few years of shareholders' profits lost there already..


ALONG A SIMILAR VEIN,  a couple of years back I read that more than two decades after the Exxon Valdez disaster up in Alaska, there were still some affected Innuit communities and some commercial fishermen who hadn't yet seen any genuine compensation efforts reaching them..

Doesn't that often seem to be the way  !?!        Suspect

I WASN'T actually supporting the shareholders there, blackie -- but simply adding another angle to the discussion...

And another potential argument to use against the actions of corporations like BP,  and their arrogant attitude that the whole planet is only there for their greedy exploitation.
