Eyebrow-raising details of BP’s spill response plan http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2010/05/27/walruses-in-louisiana-eyebrow-raising-details-of-bps-spill-response-plan/ Global environmental challenges Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:14:55 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: LoriGirl http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2010/05/27/walruses-in-louisiana-eyebrow-raising-details-of-bps-spill-response-plan/comment-page-1/#comment-345370 Sat, 12 Jun 2010 03:29:51 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/?p=17582#comment-345370 And to think, our oh-so-competent Federal Government approved that response plan. I wonder if BP has decided that their ROI for the Obama Campaign in 08 was a huge waste of money. THAT’s where the dividend money went.

There is no excuse for a cut and paste job regardless of salary; I see it all the time.

It is no mystery why the environmental response plan is a cut and paste job.

Hopefully they will employ that expertise to seek the maximum possible punishments for what appears to be a willful disregard by BP of its legal obligation to develop a legitimate spill response plan.
