They just published a new story: Furious Growth and Cost Cuts Led To BP Accidents Past and Present
Pascal, a career Environmental Protection Agency attorney only seven weeks into her retirement, knew as much as anyone in the federal government about BP, the company that owned the well. She understood in an instant what it would take others months to grasp: In BP's 15-year quest to compete with the world's biggest oil companies, its managers had become deaf to risk and systematically gambled with safety at hundreds of facilities and with thousands of employees’ lives.
“God, they just don’t learn,” she remembers thinking.
This article places the spill in a scary context. You might have seen that the new CEO of BP denied very recently that BP has a safety culture problem. He disagreed with a new TV documentary by the folks at PBS Frontline,prepared in conjunction with ProPublica.
