  1. “Too many shallow generalists, who knew a lot about not very much”

    Ouch, they should have played this at the congressional hearings!

    By admitting that he was moving the company away from ‘saving the world’ (ha fucking ha!) he has incriminated himself. Send him to Utah and prepare the firing squad.

  2. Great coverage about BP from Greg Palast from FOUR YEARS AGO:

    “Years ago, I had the unhappy job of leading an investigation of British Petroleum’s management of the Alaska pipeline system. I was working for the Chugach villages, the Alaskan Natives who own the shoreline slimed by the 1989 Exxon Valdez tanker grounding.

    “Even then, courageous government inspectors and pipeline workers were screaming about corrosion all through the pipeline. I say “courageous” because BP, which owns 46% of the pipe and is supposed to manage the system, had a habit of hunting down and destroying the careers of those who warn of pipeline problems.”
