Wow, sand and dirt in tar sand oil wear down the pipe, who would have guessed it?.

Especially when they force it threw faster, like they did in this latest leak. I guess all the jobs this gunk will create will be in cleanup and pipeline repair.

2. Investment in planning and execution was not a priority

Why waste resources on preventing problems when it is cheaper to just slap a band-aid on them after they happen.

Just ask the eyeless shrimp in the Gulf.

5. Greed can make you stupid

I also believe that some people really aren't able to feel or understand empathy.

10. Oil companies never learn from accidents, they know exactly what they are doing.

They just do not care.

12. Politicians and administrators also know exactly what they are doing.

 

Do you ever wonder how many are paid off?

11. Oil engineers discover why sandpaper is made with sand!!!

Truthfully, this industry doesn't care what disaster they create as long as they make the $'s!

13. They make so much money

 

that they can buy some politicians and governmental administrators to look the other way.

Shouldn't the politicians and administrators who approved of this, and those who will approve of more of this, know why sandpaper is made of sand?

Not one politician will be held accountable for this?

14. We still see oil residue on the beaches from the Gulf spill...it doesn't go away quickly.

Not to mention that we've all probably been poisoned by the dispersants. It's time to tax the profits of big energy!!
