Climate Tuesday: Remember The Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill?

Well, I can't forget it, and you know what? I'm pretty sure the lawyers of Halliburton will not forget to defend their client by saying they at least had the unmitigated gall to admit after a couple of years that they were probably negligent and maybe destroyed some evidence, paid a freaking pittance and made a donation to a wee fund, like they are responsible corporate citizens just trying to live the only way they know how. Because that kind of shallow shit-show always looks good even if it's nakedly a tap-dance around how they got caught out this time over it being a disaster this time, and if they don't learn this time, well, next time it'll just be a huge disaster again, m'kay?

But don't you go worrying about the lost tourism dollars or the spent fishing industry or any of that. (Or, like, the lost health of clean-up workers or any of those human angles.) Because you know who the real victim is? BP, because everyone ends up picking on them for some reason like their culpability.  The nerve, you know?

It's almost enough to make you stop crying over the eyeless shrimp. Which they caused.

(But since all involved are also involved with the rising oceanic temps because global warming is a real thing, can I still also blame them for the flesh-eating bacteria? Because I will, probably, anyway. )

I believe in the corporate death penalty, and Halliburton, Transocean, and BP commited the capital crime of attempted Gaiacide and actual homicide.
