  • The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (BOEMRE) is thrilled with things that BP has done to tighten up their efforts and plan for BP's future in the Gulf. BOEMRE's investigations, completed almost a full year after our President condemned BP, have severely criticized the sub-contractors as responsible for much of the damage. And the U.S. Coast Guard reports criticize themselves and the federal government as much if not more so than BP.

     

    In complex systems, there is usually considerable responsibility for success. Unfortunately, in our country, we like to place all the blame, vigilante-style, on one party.

  • Finally, somebody is doing his homework using common sense and
    proper data. Pointing fingers at a very well known outfit was the easiest thing to do, like the" burning of a witch" or " the rounding of the usual suspects"In additions, accidents have always occurred, are occurring and will always occur.
