Comments on: Hayward should say he’ll leave BP post-spill http://blogs.reuters.com/breakingviews/2010/06/08/hayward-should-say-hell-leave-bp-post-spill/ Mon, 26 Sep 2016 03:26:00 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Kosh http://blogs.reuters.com/breakingviews/2010/06/08/hayward-should-say-hell-leave-bp-post-spill/comment-page-1/#comment-2825 Fri, 11 Jun 2010 16:45:53 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/columns/?p=3242#comment-2825 Hayward, the board and top executives at BP, Transocean, the appropriate govt agencies and Halliburton(at least) should be arrested and when found guilty: executed.

Have we forgotten that their quest for profit at any cost has meant the death of the Gulf of Mejico, not to mention the death of 11 people.

It is time we stopped allowing big corporations to get away with their crimes.

But the company is sued by a state much more eco-terrorist than it is. That is the mainstream in Europe. There is no shame to be British, drilling oil because UK and Europe as a whole are much more liable of their industrial activity than the USA. Not only is GB the conceiver the builder and defensor of the Kyoto Protocol but also the country of Marshall the classical theorist of the environmental cost. That’s why they are many ways of a counter attack. Why this accident doesn’t lead the US to enter the KP? Why are they going to delay it again as it is evident that the pollution in humanmade ans that is for the air like for the sea? Is n’t it much more important for our common futur than the resign of Hayward or the price of the BP shares which benefits to the challengers?

was lucky enough to count BP as one of my clients – as well as Conoco, Philips Petroleum, Amoco, Schlumberger & Shell.

BP stood out from the rest as having the most professional culture & that quality does not change overnight.

Obama is a “little man” who does not seem to have a clue how to govern.

There is little evidence that he has put his shoulder to the wheel to resolve this accident – unlike Margaret Thatcher following the previous worst offshore rig disaster (involving an American company) in my backyard.

Hayward should not consider stepping down.

If that’s true, and if it’s also true that President Obama is the single largest recipient of BP political donations, no matter what we’re told and see on the public stage, wouldn’t that be improper? I suppose it’s not any more important than rigging elections. Wouldn’t it be nice if a news organization had the balls to expose some of these shenanigans so the public would get a glimmer of the corruption that’s going on?

It’s a public company, and some 35% of it is owned by Americans.

BP employs tens of thousands of Americans.

BP is obviously qualified to drill oil and gas wells and operate them.

Why Obama is wasting time threatening BP is just mind boggling.

The US is on shaky ground when it comes to oil-slicks: the President seems more interested in a display of cojones than cracking down on globalist shareholder value OCD. “I did it for the shareholders” has become our generation’s “I was only obeying orders”.

What do you mean the Coast Guard sank the drilling platform. They had nothing to do with the explosions and the damages that caused the eventual sinking. Where do you get you (non) facts? That sounds like something the wacky ex-governor of Alaska would say. Way out in left field with no basis in reality.

The reason BP wasn’t prepared was I agree the “fire fighting mentality”. However, this mentality is due to corporate charters which overtly place “maximizing shareholder value” as the main goal and place maximizing executive compensation and power as the covert goal. That’s why regulation would have been handy, but most all corporate regulation has been gradually neutered starting with R. Reagan. The assertion that Obama is “playing politics” is totally absurd, delusional, and irrational since it is Obama who has egg all over his face for backing the drilling. Please buy a few books on rational thinking. Then read them.

Where are your priorities? We should all be concentrating on plugging that hole, saving our wildlife, saving our coastlines, cleaning up all that oil on top of and in the oceans (from the dispersants) and worry about who is at fault later. Have you seen all the animals, fish, and birds that are dying because of this disaster? Who gives a hoot if Hayward quits or how much money he gets ..etc.. we have more important issues like stopping the oil flow into the Gulf…Remember …as we continue to destroy our environment all around the world… we are also destroying ourselves… we are just part of that big food chain and when our support (Air, Water, Food, Fish, etc) are all gone or polluted beyond repair… so will we be gone… Man is so so stupid…

They sunk the damn platform which is what caused the pipe to break and allow the gusher to spew into the ocean… Who could possibly think that sea-water can fight an oil fire? Ridiculous!!
