    Laugh or cry?

    I wish the video could be as funny without characterizing the oil volcano as a minor spill with a botched response, when really it was a disaster waiting to happen with no effective response ready, a fact which BP intentionally covered up. Skimmers are like firetrucks–you don’t use all of them often, but that’s because it’s much better to have to many than too few. BPs disaster preparedness plan claimed they could skim as much as 17 million gallons per day… how much have they skimmed *in total* so far?

  3. Peter, my thoughts, exactly. However, I think satire may be a very effective way to show the average person how ridiculous BP has been.

    Speaking of satire, there is a BRILLIANT satirical piece on the War on Science over at one of my favorite blogs: Friends of Gin & Tonic.

    My favorite is “Obama sings Kickass song” (be sure to watch the whole thing, there’s a sort of break in the middle) it’s in various locations, but this one worked more seamlessly for me without stops.

    Excellent parody!

    coffee spilling into the FISH and a map of LOUISIANA…

    Being serious, this is not much unlike their response to the real-life oil spill!
