Greenpeace Response to BP Report

AMSTERDAM - September 8 - Responding to BP’s report on the Deepwater Horizon disaster, Tzeporah Berman, head of Greenpeace International Energy Campaign, said:

“BP’s self penned review is a sorry attempt to spread the blame for the Deepwater Horizon oil disaster, but still reveals a devastating litany of human error, incompetence and technical failure.

As oil companies pursue marginal profits in challenging environments these compromises and failures are inevitable. If we want to avoid future deep water oil disasters governments need to move the world beyond oil by investing in clean energy solutions.

Greenpeace is calling for an immediate ban on all deep water drilling, which is the only sensible response to this disaster. The time has come to move beyond oil and invest in clean energy.”
