Gulf Oil Debacle

The news, pick any one of them ad nausium asks its viewers if they think that BP and or the government is doing enough. Everyone seems to have missed the point. It is not about whether or not BP and the government are doing enough but rather what was and was not done to prevent this disaster from happening. This includes but is not limited to prevention of the explosion to the many days that passed when the oil had not yet reached the shores and no action was taken to curb coast line exposure to the oil. The rest seems moot to me, the damage is already done. As the old colloquialism goes “It is like closing the barn door after the horses ran.”

This means NO, they have not done enough.

  1. No debacle, it seems, just a whole bunch of errors made.
