It took two years just to get a temporary stop. How many contracts did they get in those two years?

And how long is "temporary?" I am perfectly willing to thank someone for even this, though. Who should it be (besides all of us)?

Bravo! It was the right thing to do. It's worse than Fracking.

Good news! I wish for a simplicity where these corporations would just abide by the rules & laws in the first place. So, BP wants to fix its tarnished image? In my eyes, they will always be greedy and evil.

Good news. It's the only way to make them recognise that the environment is important and needs protecting.

Its about &^%$#_) time! Maybe if we are lucky he'll grow a set and stand up to big oil and their GOP lap dogs on a (regular) basis. I not gonna hold my breath though.His track record in that area ain't encouraging.

Theys should not be suspended. They should be banned ever having the possibility to do it again.
