WTF? Doesn’t Hayward realize that American’s would like their ocean back the way it was before his greedy corporation decided to turn our Gulf Coast into an ecological disaster?
We’d like our dolphins, pelicans, fish, shellfish, plant life and the entire spectrum of our ecosystem in that region back! Sheesh give me a break Mr. Hayward, the reality is that you get to go back home eventually and resume your life of luxury and convenience.
On the other hand, Americans in the region will have no livelihoods and the domino effect will be devastating. So stop whining like a spoiled brat and get that damned oil out of our ocean!!
The millionaire CEO of foreign oil giant BP, Tony Hayward, is upset at the inconvenience caused to him by his company’s devastation of the Gulf of Mexico. BP’s offshore drilling explosion claimed 11 lives on April 20, and has since spewed 20 to 100 million gallons of oil into the Gulf. At least 491 birds, 227 turtles and 27 mammals, including dolphins, have been found dead. On Sunday, immediately after apologizing, Hayward then complained about the effect of the Deepwater Horizon disaster on himself, saying “I would like my life back“:
We’re sorry for the massive disruption it’s caused their lives. There’s no one who wants this over more than I do. I would like my life back.
Hayward, who pulled in $4.5 million last year, has a record of insensitive comments about the greatest environmental disaster in the United States:
There are no indications that the Obama administration intends to remove Hayward or his company from running the cleanup effort, however. “I trust Tony Hayward,” Admiral Thad Allen, the top federal official overseeing the Gulf disaster, told CNN last week.
Hard as it may be for Hayward to believe, the residents of the Louisiana coast may want their nightmare to end even more than BP. “I was just sitting here thinking our way of life is over. It’s the end, the apocalypse,” fisherman Tom Young of Plaquemines Parish told reporters today. (HT Eschaton)
