Obama Has Learned Nothing From the BP Blowout

Dave Lindorff, ThisCan'tBeHappening: "President Obama claims to have learned a lesson from the disastrous blowout of British Petroleum drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico: a 'cozy relationship' between the agency that regulates oil drilling, the Minerals Management Service, and the oil industry, he charges, allowed companies to drill in vulnerable offshore areas without properly assessing the risks to the ocean and its ecology."

Maybe We Can All Get Rich Cleaning Up Each Others' Pollution

Max Ajl, Truthout: "The pictures are everywhere and they are really ugly: the waters of the Gulf of Mexico marred with cocoa-brown blots of oil, seabirds brown-black with oil gunk that will probably kill them. Reportage of the explosion of the Deepwater Horizons offshore drilling rig is full of facts about ecological devastation, mismanagement of the rig, corporate wrong-doing and, rightfully, Barack Obama's abominable stance on offshore drilling. But could something good come out of this mess?"

Can you see the government’s hidden role in the BP oil spill?

Downsize DC
by James Leroy Wilson

05/17/10

The BP oil spill is another example of the destructive nature of government guarantees and bailouts. I know that BP has agreed to pay more of the clean-up costs, beyond the government-provided liability cap. I also know that they’ve been threatened by Congress and the Administration if they don’t. But this is hypocritical, because Congress created the liability cap and the clean up fund in the first place!
