BP’s joke of a oil spill plan

For actual jokes ABOUT the oil spill, try this page

The original article which is not funny is posted below:

BP listed walruses, seals ,sea lions, and sea otters as ” sensitive biological resources” in it’s 2009 Gulf of Mexico Response Plan. Which would be ver y caring of them, except none of those animals live anywhere near the Gulf of Mexico.

Professor Peter Lutz is mentioned in BP’s 2009 response plan for a Gulf of Mexico oil spill as a national wildlife expert. He died in 2005.

They go the names and phone numbers of several Texas A&M University marine life specialists wrong. The numbers for marine mammal stranding network offices in Florida and Louisiana are no longer in service.

BP PLC’s 582-page regional spill plan for the Gulf, and its 52-page, site-specific plan for the Deepwater Horizon rig are riddled with omissions and glaring errors, according to an Associated Press analysis that details how BP officials have pretty much been making it up as they go along. The lengthy plans approved by the federal government last year before BP drilled its ill-fated well vastly understate the dangers posed by an uncontrolled leak and vastly overstate the company’s preparedness to deal with one.

“BP Exploration and Production Inc. has the capability to respond, to the maximum extent practicable, to a worst case discharge, or a substantial threat of such a discharge, resulting from the activities proposed in our Exploration Plan,” claims BP in their laughable report.
