Look at all the resources that they have deployed there. The ROV shot above the water changed my whole perception of what is going on. Yeh, its easy to think of them as an evil corporate but I can see for myself how hard they are trying to fix this disaster.
I know a lot of the geologists and geophysicists at BP. They are great folks overall and are mortified by what has happened.
There is a risk to drilling. It is amazing that the industry has such a good track record!
If you don't like oil, don't use it!
More of these jerks on the BP board are nothing but environmentalists who drive Hummers and talk down all the drilling and so forth. They are bunch of uneducated fanatics just like all other fanatics. They are equal to religious fanatics who wouldn't mind killing another soul just to advance their own fanaticism. Why don't you pull up your sleeves and swim down 5000 feet and show the rest of the world what you are made of.
