Criminal Investigation of BP Shut Down by Bush Regime (tags)
Evidence points to Bush policies that stopped a criminal investigation into BP's environmental crimes, taking action then would have forced BP to implement preventative measures. Having a tested back-up plan in case of deep water oil spill was needed, though both Bush and Obama failed to check up on BP's plans following a well rupture.

The oil pressure coming up the oil deep water pipe was running between 20,000 and 70,000 PSI. Science Advisor Richard C. Hoagland warned listeners that an even worse catastrophe could be looming if a giant gas bubble that has formed at the site of the leak on the ocean floor should blow. Hoagland said the pressure in the pipe is 100,000 or more lbs of pressure per squire inch or PSI.
EMERGENCY SUMMIT-THE PEOPLE MUST ACT TO STOP THE OIL CATASTROPHE (tags)
The BP oil blowout is an environmental catastrophe, bringing great peril to marine and wildlife in the Gulf and threatening ecosystems of the planet. The spill is still out of control and spreading.

CA Governor Candidate Alexander, SPUSA: BP Oil Spill a Crime not a Disaster (tags)
The explosion on BP’s Deepwater Horizon rig that released millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico has been called a “Disaster” by many. It isn’t a disaster. It is a crime.
Gulf oil spill threatens economic, environmental catastrophe (tags)
"According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, the Deepwater Horizon oil rig lacked a device called an acoustic switch that could have shut off the flow of oil. The remote controlled device sends acoustic impulses through the water that can trigger an underwater valve to shut down the well. All offshore rigs have one main switch to shut off the flow of oil by closing a valve located on the ocean floor. There is also supposed to be a backup, a so-called “dead man,” that will shut down the well in the event of a catastrophe on the rig. Apparently neither of these devices worked on the Deepwater Horizon rig. The crewmembers who would have been closest to the shutoff switch are among those missing and presumed dead. With an acoustic trigger a crew can shut down a well even if the rig is damaged or evacuated. However, BP, which reported profits of $5.598 billion for the first quarter of 2010, vigorously resisted changes to US regulations that would have required acoustic triggers on deep sea rigs, citing effectiveness and costs, about $500,000 per unit. Compliant US regulators agreed, saying other backup plans were sufficient. They called the acoustic triggers unreliable and prone to causing unnecessary shutdowns."
