BP can’t be trusted to fix their leak, or clean up their mess–or do anything else!

BP Prepares to Take New Tack on Leak After ‘Top Kill’ Fails

Thus the New York Times reports today (http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/30/us/30spill.html).

So we’re all waiting for BP to solve this problem? BP, which caused the problem in the first place, through its own apocalyptic greed and swaggering incompetence? BP, whose “clean-up” so far is a frightful joke, compounding the original catastrophe?

And we’re asking BP how it’s going, and what they’re planning next, as if their take on things is
worth considering–when they’ve been lying from the start, and working very hard to cover up
the situation, by forcing a vast black-out on the press?

Apparently I’m not the only one who thinks that BP’s management should not be running anything
right now, but facing charges. The government should seize the corporation’s assets, including
its equipment, and start listening to some people not on BP’s payroll–people who might know
how best to stop the leak, and clean the lands and waters that the oil is killing even as we speak

That, at least, is what the government would do if it were ours and not BP’s.
