- Who knows?! Not me!
BP's job is to make money; it is all they care about. As long as people in control care more about money than people, wildlife or the planet, these things will continue to happen. I do believe they cut corners at every opportunity to save money. There was no need to do that; the leaders of the company will all die stinking rich. Even now and going forward they will continue to do everything they can to minimize their costs, not necessarily what may be the right thng to do. I do believe capitalism is the best system going, but it also sways people to care more about money than anything else. We as a society are way off track and headed in the wrong direction. A single, simple example of our own tragedy. BP will ultimately walk away and leave the mess behind for taxpayers to take care of; all the while minimizing what they pay and maximizing their own take. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out who pays for this; and I do mean in every way imaginable. They knew before they ever started drilling the safeguards against this "spill" (oops, I spilled) were little more than a joke.
