Who created the demand for the oil that BP produces?It's foolish to expect big oil to change when we don't change what we ask big oil to do. The buck doesn't stop "over there somewhere". Of course they are a bunch of profit motivated businessmen. That's what they do.
And indeed business should be reformed to act more ethically, integrate some moral responsibility into their practices (more on that in a future post), but I'm sick that Americans, who consume more than any other country, who refuse to adjust their own carbon consumption, yet get all self-righteous when the businesses that cater to their indulgence screw up.
If America weren't sucking it down, they wouldn't be digging it up.
Let's be honest, all this self-righteous bile aimed at BT is easier than blaming the real villains in the play, the consumers who are still driving 4x4s and complaining that the air-conditioning isn't on high enough.
