Anyone see anything wonky with these numbers that BP has to pay? CLEANING up the waters and the shoreline of the Gulf of Mexico after the Deepwater Horizon disaster of 2010 cost BP $14 billion, but economic costs were somewhere between $60 and $100 billion. Is BP paying for all the mess or is someone else picking up the tab?
Where do you get the $60 to $100 billion number from?
“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.” Robert Heinlein
