    Is BP doing enough to clean up the oil spill in the Gulf now that it has reached US beaches?

    no I don't believe so. I think that BP could have done alot more early on but wanted to try to salvage that drill spot. So instead of stopping the leak permanantly and therfore never using that spot again  they tried to get by without doing what needed to be done. I bet that there is someone, probably some average Joe out there Who knows exactly what to do but noone would listen to them, most likely. And as far as it reaching the beaches It probably could have been stopped from every reaching the beaches to start with had BP Done more in the beginning.

    BP is bussy spending time and resources on Public Relations (lawyers, advertising, etc), the oil leak is of secondary importance as long as they can influence public opinion through the media. They are failing miserably at that too now. British Petroleum will be bankrupt very soon. It is a dead corporation, it killed itself lol.

    This is one of those questions that can only be answered in hindsight...which we do not have as yet.

    BP is taking action.  They have put plans in place to recruit workers - which at this point they do not have enough of.  This is a massive spill and requires a great deal of logistical organization - all of which is being done at this moment. 

    Whether or not they are doing enough remains to be seen.  If they are able to completely clean up the oil...then we will all look back on this and say "yes, they did enough."  Right now, the jury is still out.

    Funny, I just wrote an article about this,...

    No, they are not. They are not capable of it. Any large corporation based on capitalistic goals, namely greed, will never be able to do enough.

    I sincerely believe that people have to fix the underlying problems associated with the environmental disasters before they can effectively start cleaning up the spills that are caused by big corporations like BP.
