We shall see…

Eric Holder (the US Attorney General in case you did not know) made the following comment in response to the ruling by U.S. District Judge Carl Barbie that “BP Acted With Gross Negligence In Gulf Oil Spill”…

The largest oil spill in United States history was caused by BP’s gross negligence and willful misconduct. The court’s findings will ensure that the company is held fully accountable for its recklessness. And we are confident that this decision will serve as a strong deterrent to anyone who is tempted to sacrifice safety and the environment in the pursuit of profit.

And yet around here in sunny North Carolina, our state government is actively encouraging companies to come here and Frack for gas.

We shall see if this ruling has any effect on how Fracking companies act and who will pay for the cleanup and restoration of tainted water supplies once they leave.
