"A recently leaked body of internal company correspondence shows senior BP brass trying to spin scientific research produced by company-paid researchers in order to minimize the scale of the spill's destruction in the public mind."


This must be some kind of scum sucking, algae eating, tree hugging Liberal propaganda spin. Big oil would never do a thing like that!

Put on your little white robe and meet the BPriest in his office. You're sure to get a hell of a lot more than warm and fuzzy.

Maybe the BPriest needs to add a few barrels of oil to his hot tub and soak in it every day for a while...

I know I defended BP in the days after Macondo blowout until the facts came out which a lot have. The Blame/guilty parties should not be limited to just BP but to Transocean and Halliburton too. Idiots is all I have to say-freaking idiots to all involved

Greedy idiots. This all manifested due to their greed. They wanted higher profits and decided to use sub-par materials.

I'm not so one can call it greed as employees that bring wells in on time and early are often promoted with rewards. Now do not mistake working efficiently with working stooopidly or with risks.

If you remember in US the Dominoes Pizza early on would give it to you free is they delivered it over a certain time. That worked until a driver hurriedly wrecked his vehicle and killed somebody in which a lawsuit occurred. Now think about it, pretty stoopid for the Dominoes execs to come up with that idea endangering people lives over a frigging pizza.

When I work on projects I promote safety and work efficiently. Myself I think that's the key, I tell people how I want to set things up which usually takes longer my way but efficient and completion is usually completed sooner and have never had a safety issue....fingers crossed...

Rewarding employees with bonuses is good. You can bet that the rewards are far less than the companies were making. Construction companies typically get big bonuses for coming in under time. In this case, it is more profitable for BP because they can start pumping profits that much sooner. I guarantee they made far more than they paid out. It is smart business until they get greedy and start using sub-par materials to make the same income at lower cost.

The Domino's thing was a brilliant idea. It made them one of the top two pizza chains in the world. They probably made billions because of it and had to pay out a few million. No big loss.

The auto industry does the same thing. They have a safety issue with one, or some, of their cars but let them keep selling and don't fix the issues until they have to. The money they make from sales dwarfs what they will have to pay in law suits. It often takes them years to even admit there is a problem.

We had a Ford truck a few years ago. One day we started having really weird things happen with the electronics. The cabin lights, cargo light, some safety lights, dash electronics and power windows all quit working. I started researching the problems and found out that for several years Ford trucks had been having issues with a sensor mounted on the front of the brake fluid reservoir. It seems that brake fluid was seeping into the wiring and causing shorts. Trucks were bursting into flames even when parked. It took nearly ten years for Ford to even admit there was an issue.

Their response? They finally sent out a "recall" that said we would have to take our truck to a dealership and leave it. When they could get to it, they would simply disconnect the sensor. They were not going to replace the sensors as they had no idea how long it would take to get new ones. I disconnected it myself.

So, not only did it take them years to admit there was a problem and issue a recall, they had no intentions of fixing it. All that time and they just kept using the same faulty sensor because it was cheaper than designing and tooling a factory to build a better one.

Greed.

I'm like you. I would rather do it right the first time.

Blah, blah, blah... There I go again. Damn fingers just don't know when to stop.

I had a similar deal go on with one of those mazda built ford escorts, the idle would from time to time rev wildly for no reason, thank god it was a 5 speed, so I could handle it..... but they acted like nothing was wrong, it wouldn't do it for them at the shop.

The worse thing was it was brand new and under full warranty!

Finally one morning it did it and I drove it to the shop while it was revving like a mother they fixed it, it was of all things a faulty thermostat.

Don't ask, I realize that should not have caused that!gaah.gif

Found out a few of those cars had that, and people had been injured and killed as a result of this defect. They couldn't be bothered to fix what they knew was wrong. gaah.gif
