Fake BP Disaster Plan Was Approved by the Government

Jun 14, 2010

In 2009, BP submitted a disaster response plan to the Minerals Management Service (MMS) when it applied for a permit to start its Deepwater Horizon drilling.

Would anyone be surprised to hear that it was a complete fake?

The biologist BP said it would call on to monitor the impact of an accident on wildlife had died four years before BP even submitted the plan!

The MMS accepted BP’s fake disaster plan without questioning a thing, proving how fake government oversight of the oil industry has been!
