Update 1: Seas..
Huffington Post has this up as “breaking News”..
Breaking news: You need not worry about the safety of offshore oil drilling. How do I know this? Well, let’s just say a hat tip is in order for Exxon’s new blog, Perspectives, which launched today with a post about the Deepwater Horizon disaster. “This devastating chain of events is far from the industry norm,” proclaims Exxon blogger Ken Cohen, who’s also the oil giant’s vice president of public and government affairs. “We all need to understand what occurred on this occasion that did not occur on the 14,000 other deepwater wells that have been successfully drilled around the world.”
Can’t recall now who it was recently to suggest the re-importance of Machiavelli. You will recall how mister M told his prince that fear was the mark by which rulers ruled. Put in the frame of making the oil industry very serious about its risk profiling to the planet we might say how someone or something is getting to them. Nay, I don’t think Me & Em had a role 🙂 (too recent for starters), but little question remains as to about time!
