We are ALL the blame, and all will be punished.
Those who drive big gas guzzler's because we can.
Those who regulate lax safety standards because of this great addiction called oil.
And like an addict - even sacrificing food for fuel with ethonal that drives the cost of food up.
Addicted to oil is the U.S. who uses 2/3 of all oil production in the world.

Less demand would mean we wouldn't have to drill over a mile into the ocean to get our next fix for the next five years.
Everybody shares a little blame for this. From BP to the White House to who ever signed off on the right to drill there. However, this pressure was more then was expected and calculated for. They were not properly prepared. Nor has the response from anybody been worth a damn.
As soon as this happened, plans for a relief well should have been on the board, buoys, skimmers and sand should have been brought in for containment.
Rather then pointing fingers, BP needs to just step up and use some of last quarters billion dollars worth of profit and get to cleaning and plugging.
BP and other Oil companies are to blame. No one asked me or I would have set them all straight.
don't blame anyone....they also won't this situation occur. Its just a mistakes that every person in the world will through too.
The whole oil industry certainly since none of them had proper risk assessments or action plans to handle potential disasters.
