According to Fox News one scientist concludes that it will take 650 quadrillion gallons of oil to completely fill the ocean. Some may project a level of optimism when compared from 2 to 4 million gallons of oil leaked daily in the Gulf on a 62 plus day BP gush.
However, we cannot escape reality – 650 quads does not cover British Petroleum’s hands in this disaster. No matter which way you slice it or dice it BP has caused havoc to the lives in and around the Gulf of Mexico. As day 60 of the BP gush approached, a thorn was shed as the oil rose. BP’s CEO, Tony Hayward, was removed from heading the operation.
America should celebrate the change! Hayward seems to be.
It was a perfect time for BP’s CEO to take “Bob”, a yacht, to England for a yacht race. Or was it? Once dubbed as the “guy who cried I want my life back”, Hayward is said to be floating on clean waters as what was left behind in the Gulf remains a gross display of tar ball and petroleum filled air.
Recently families of the 11 dead oil rig workers were outraged at hearing BP CEO’s “I want to get my life back” statement. Earlier a sense of Nixon fell into the minds of many when Hayward stated “We made a few little mistakes early on” as shared by Guardian. Most were waiting to hear Hayward say “when BP does it, it’s not a illegal.” But that frosty moment never arrived.
Since April, when the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded, not only was human life expired but also the sea life that struggled only to have their systems clogged by tar balls and oil due to the aftermath of the oil spill. Some thought Hayward would cry and hide once in Britain, but it’s obvious that if he is shedding a tear it’s due to not being in the top three of the yacht race.
Big time CEO downfalls usually are story book endings in a Lifetime way. This is nothing new. Although when exploring the final chapter of the BP CEO something smells fishy.
Question is, did BP give the CEO a package, a bonus, some form of financial exchange for him to step down or step up? An easy way to bend a buck is to, dare we say it, defraud others. Not to say that’s how it all went down in BP Gate. But there’s bubbles full of air pocketing certain areas in this drama.
The downfall of Hayward was due to his claims that he didn’t know much about critical decisions and safety responses when it came to the oil spill. Now that Hayward is not in charge, the results may deem crystal clear – it should be smoother sailing on the Gulf oil spill clean up efforts from this moment on.
Or let’s hope.
