bp's eight dumbest mistakes (and counting)

the full article is here, but here is the summary:

1. BP never had a realistic plan to deal with a spill

2. BP went with a risky type of blowout preventer — and then didn't maintain it

3. The well's critical plumbing was shoddy and poorly designed

4. BP and rig workers ignored or misread clear warning signs

5. A "company man" overrode explosion concerns of well cementers

6. BP hasn't fessed up about how much oil is really spilling 

7. BP's "solutions" may be making the spill much, much worse

8. BP needs a bigger boat

this is such a huge issue for our time, and both bp and the current administration needs to get a move on.
