Lets see what happens, remember they are only liable for 75million.

What would you do for your shareholders, employees etc.

They have already paid out 200 million.

I really don't care about BP's stockholders. I care about the people of the Gulf. If BP doesn't make a profit this year(highly unlikely), it's still the richest oil company in the world. BP made a 1st quarter 2010 profit of $5.5b. Plus it has an agreement with Russia that will more than make up for any shortfall from the Gulf cleanup.

I thin the first $200 million went out the door in week number two.

So far, they're way over the $4 Billion mark.

This video shows conclusively how weak or non-existent regulations hurts the environment. It also shows that business will NOT regulate itself.

I'm sending this video to everyone I have an email address for.

This is the newest condition the well is in, will last for a while but is perhaps not the long term solution:

Default What BP and the WH don't want you to know

I see this thread is not getting much action. BP would much rather you forget the Gulf so they can continue to bury the evidence in secret like they're doing in this article. I just posted the link because it's long;

Sorry I haven't posted in a while but I've been on vacation and the resort wanted an arm and a leg to use their puters.
