    I get that BP needs to pay for what they have done, but it really does not matter. The fact of the matter is that the oil industry has become the latest of the “To Big To Fail” market & security affecting industries in this country. We all know they need to go, we all know we need to be on alternative sustainable energy sources that are not inherently dangerous to the public and environment. That being said, it does not make sense to waste resources fighting incident based litigation battles while the war of bringing the industry into check is being lost.

    My thoughts are that issues relating to information control should be fought without a doubt. Regarding the regulations though, I think we should just be focusing on ensuring that the industry is loosing the battle to control emerging and upstart industries which offer just the type of energy solutions we need to successfully and PERMANENTLY leave the oil industry extinct, where it belongs, in the archives of history along with the Dinosaurs from which they have thrived.

    That is absolutely proposperous. For every BIG oil you love to hate their are thousands of companies that cant absorb new taxes despite what clothing youn put on it. The past two companies I worked for both filed chapter 11 and both could NOT restructure and were liquidated. Those are related to thousands of industries and 100’s of thousands companies. These new delays are causing so many people to be unemployed. Concentrate on third party inspections of the BOP’s. That is what you should are should not have sealed the well! You can never regulate human error and drilling practices vary too much depending on depth and formation to make that viable for Government oversight. You are killing the economy with these new delays! Please lift the mortorium and quite putting the little guy out of work. I have been unemployed since November! I want to work.

    Are you opposed to working for a new company that is producing, or involved w/ producing sustainable energy sources that are not inherently dangerous to the public and environment?

    If not, then why would you not get behind having the 10 Billion dollars a year in subsidies given to those types of companies. There is NO drilling necessary to produce these types of energy. There WILL be a HUGE amount of positions that need to be filled to change out the energy infrastructure, and the only thing people like yourself are doing by clinging to the OIL industry is making that change more difficult.

    Consider becoming part of the solution instead of part of the problem. The quicker the money is redirected, the quicker you, and so many others can have jobs that are producing REAL, NATIONALLY independant and PERMANENT solutions for our energy issues.
