Gulf Oil Spill: Tell the Senate it's time to Hold BP Accountable: End Liability Cap

  • Rating: 5 after 3 votes

If we allow our government to maintain the liability cap on companies that destroy American lives, property, and habitats, BP gets away with only having to pay the first $75 million in damages for this horrendous Gulf Oil Spill. Sign this petition at the link below, call or email your senators, let them know we want BP to be responsible for every penny in damages for their negligence in this oil spill.

Don't forget, BP made a $ 6 BILLION NET PROFIT in just the first quarter of this year alone. They have the funds to pay for their negligence. NO excuses, no passes. Take full responsibility BP and clean up the Gulf.

BP wants you to foot the bill for their oil disaster.

They want you to take care of the thousands of fishermen whose businesses have been destroyed, pay to clean the growing number of animals
smothered in oil and pay to clean up the miles and miles of ruined
beach and marshland on the Gulf Coast.

But there's just no way taxpayers are going to bailout another reckless corporate giant. BP
must be forced to assume total responsibility for their mess. 

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
damages.
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 cannot
be expected to bailout another irresponsible corporate giant.  We need
accountability in business now.
Add your name to our petition now and take a stand for greater
accountability.  We'll deliver the signatures to the Senate next week.

Oh the irony!

Oil Flow Estimates Are Significantly Boosted
As many as 50,000 barrels of oil per day may have flowed into the Gulf before it was partly contained on June 3, the U.S. Geological Survey says. Purdue University's Steven Wereley, a key member of the group making the assessment, talks with WSJ's Robert Lee Hotz about the new flow estimates.

BP was saying 12,000 barrels, but new estimates say 50,000 barrels a day.
It's criminal what's happening. I just hope BP pays for ALL of the damages to life, limb, and evniroment--BIg TIME!
I've signed, shared, and X posted many petitions.
If negligence is proven, then yes, it will be a prosecutable crime. Criminal Negligence.
