The oil spill

Funnels,large concrete boxes,golf balls on a string and still the oil is spewing out.
I urge you all to have a quick look around your sheds/garages to see if you can find anything to help poor British petroleum out.

    Spot on Addickted, a couple of old fairy liquid bottles and some sticky backed plastic would have the job done, possibly an empty egg box just in case!

    Anyone with any sense would've sold their BP shares the day it happened.
    Although i see your post was 3 weeks ago so maybe they've got rid by now?

    I know curb it its terrible whats happening out there and whats even worse is not one idiot has a clue how to stop it!!

    NSS I would assume he unloaded at reasonable price and i'm assuming that they would be looking to reinvest in those very shares again soon? To me they are nearing buying a good buying prices.

    This basically shows you how big the oil spill actually is in relation to the UK.

    have a look

    Thanks reserves. Good link. Shocking.

    What a daft statement to make. The tragic deaths of 11 people - versus the absolute devastation inflicted on an entire ecosystem, the destruction of a whole economy and inherent loss of livelihood for literally hundreds of thousands of people, the knock-on effects on tourism. You should care about BOTH the deaths of the oil workers and the subsequent catastrophe.

    Big Oil = big risk. BP made $16 billion last year . They have to pay and will be doing so for a very very very long time.

    Exxon ValeDez was yonks ago and ExxonMobil are still paying.

    Pension funds?

    At some point peoples attention will be turned from enviromental issues to ones that affect us directly, like money.
    Sad but thats the human race, not all but most.

    It is without doubt a human and enironmental catastrophe. But I can't help thinking that, if American citizens didn't have such a voracious appetite for cheap (very cheap) gasoline, then the likelihood of such a catastrophe would diminish significantly.

    Be careful what you wish for.
  • Options
    Dont think anyone is wishing for it, except purveyors of airborne detergents and booms.

    How anyone can worry about their spare cash dipping a little is beyond my understanding of selfishness.
    BP a major player, and holder of the key when it comes to a diminishing resource which they have part control of, as prices soar inexorably (and at the same time keeping those visionary pension fund managers happy in the long term) over the coming years.

    It will be less than a decade before we face the same problem in Indonesia and Scotland.

    No lover of the USA but they are by no means the only set of people(s) that have an appetite for cheap energy. We are all to blame if that is your reasoning behind this disaster. Not having a go, and playing devils advocate.

    Dont forget its the pension funds of millions that will also be hit re the share fall and the pressure on BP.

    BP say they will pay out first claims agaisnt them in days rather than the 45days /two months fast track claims take in the USA at the moment.

    The sale of one asset of BP would be in the region of $25 million . They will have the cash to pay .

    We have to decide if we want to risk another disaster like this or stop the process of taking oil from more and more difficult places. Whilst it may be stoped in Europe/USA they wnot stop it in Africa and some of the les developed areas of Europe/ middle east/Asia.

    Oil compaanies should all pay into a disaster fund based on profits which are used to fund the payouts and clean ups of these disasters.

    Its not just petrol its the by-products of oil as well such as plastics and chemicals.

    100% true. The one saving grace (if that's a term you can use here) is that the area where the accident happened is relatively accessible. Try repairing it or cleaning up if it occurs under a mile of pack ice, or 100 miles into the Arctic ocean.
