BP profits up, while workers and marine life die

This video from the USA says about itself:

1 May 2007 — Eva Rowe, daughter of two workers killed in the BP-Texas City disaster, testified about the disaster and worker safety before the U.S. House Education and Labor Committee on March 22, 2007.

While BP oil is still killing marine life in the Gulf of Mexico … and just after 11 workers have died, after more workers’ deaths

From German news agency DPA:

BP reports bumper yield for first quarter of 2010

Tue, 27 Apr 2010 06:57:11 GMT

London – British Petroleum (BP) saw profits rise by 135 per cent to 3.6 billion pounds (5.6 billion dollars) in the first quarter of 2010, the oil company said in London Tuesday.

The doubling of profit levels compared with the same period a year ago followed a rise in crude oil prices fuelled by recovery hopes for the global economy.

BP‘s results were much higher than expert forecasts after profits in exploration and production nearly doubled to 5.36 billion pounds, the company said.

In a recent strategy update, BP said it would begin production on 42 major projects worldwide over the next five years as existing fields decline, and boost profits by taking cutting costs.
