BP Oil Spill – Clarke & Dawe lighter look at BP

Sometimes it takes a bit of humour to point out the fallacies in our thinking.

Do you think self regulation, which is the policy that Crown Minerals and Gerry Brownlee espouse, is the best way to manage our petroleum resources?

Do you think that a few more regs about how many battons need to be on the oil rig’s doors will be enough? Or do you think that we need a comprehensive environmental protection regime for our EEZ?

  1. This really is too serious a disaster for humour. It is interesting to google ‘Transocean’ and ‘Deepwater Horizon’.Part of the conglomerate that makes up Transocean was a Norwegian whaler.This US company is registered in Switzerland having moved there from the Cayman Islands. Deepwater Horizon was registered in the Marshall Islands. The Transocean motto is “we’re never out of our depth.” The links http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transocean and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deepwater_Horizon provide interesting reading.
