Sign our petition to the Senate:
When a company like BP conducts reckless projects that destroy our environment and our communities, they should assume full liability for
their actions and be held financially responsible for paying any
The current liability cap on companies who pose such a threat to our collective safety and livelihood ultimately puts taxpayers on the hook
for cleaning up someone elses mess.
We, the undersigned, demand the Senate eliminate the liability cap and force companies to pay for their disasters in full. Taxpayers cannotAdd your name to our petition now and take a stand for greater
be expected to bailout another irresponsible corporate giant. We need
accountability in business now.
It's unfortunate that they can brag about making huge profits off of us, the government does nothing. They allow a catastrophic oil spill to ruin the environment for generations to come, and the government does nothing. I think they should pay every cent and then some and government should regulate the prices they can charge and pump oil solely from American soil. Take care of your country first.
Sad to say, one of the best things that could happen to this world, is to run out of oil. Hopefully there will still be a livable world left when that happens.
Sea currents, tides, even wave action can provide limitless clean energy. Sunshine is pure energy. Even the Earth itself pulses with electromagnetic energy. Not to mention wind energy.
We are now experiencing the worst man-made environmental disaster in the history of our nation. It may even end up being the worst ever seen in the entire world. In light of this, most of the concerns by those in charge (BP and the govt.) is about the costs and the cap on liability.
Big money, big oil and govt. corruption has allowed this to happen. Now they stand with their pants down making excuses, while signing more oil drilling contracts with still no mandates on extra safety measures.
We have not seen but a small glimpse concerning this disaster. The worst is yet to come.
If the next well they drill to fix this (won't be finished until August?) doesn't work, then what? Geologists say that it could gush for 30-50 years non-stop, if it can't be fixed. Yea, I am truly upset...
Oil.. good to the last drop...
Several nations demand that the secondary acoustic remote shut off valve be added. Not so with the USA. The oil companies cry how it adds 1/2 million bucks to the construction costs. 1/2 mill,, Boo Hoo. They have already spent 938 million so far on trying to fix Deepwater Horizon. Doesn't BP now wish they spent that?
The answer is no. They have been approved 3 more rigs (since Deepwater ruptured) and those applications were identical to Deepwater's and the government said OK.
WTH, are the people who run BP, and run our government, really that stupid? Or, are they just that greedy? What will it take to make these offshore rigs safer? I say add a couple extra shutoffs. But I have no say-so, so it's business as usual. Anything they do or say at this point will be "blame game" to pass the buck, and/or cap the liability and pass the cost onto the taxpayer.
I signed ..but unfortunately didn't donate :)
They will get the message, donation or not. Pressure from people is what's important.
I see where the govt has opened up an investigation exploring criminal prosecution against BP
