    The company needs to show how quickly it can clean up such a mess while showing minimal environmental damage.

     

    This will practically be a non-event if the company is prepared for such events.

    True. It only reveals the potential hubris and inherent imperfection of mans' best - efforts, (possibly, time will tell with more details).

     

    long: XOM - hopefully they'll accept their responsibility rather than legal loopholes and the usual dose of political and economic legerdemain to the people and environment injured; what do you think are the realistic chances in America today???

    non-issue other than to those directly affected (who will hopefully be treated and compensated fairly).

    I was considering investing in XOM and now I won't. I'll stick with Total that improves safety each and every year and fixes their problems immediately and without the jibber jabber of the likes of RDS and CVX.

    Not a chance it will go down $22+ over this serious but controllable spill.

    USA doesn't rejoice in a major left-wing news outlet. It has a large number of shock - horror ones though.
