BP Disaster Plan, A Disaster

The company’s 2009 response plan setting out what it would do in the event of a leak in the Gulf of Mexico was seriously flawed, it emerged today, and showed a lack of understanding for the environment in which it was drilling.

One of the wildlife experts it listed in the plan as a potential adviser died in 2005. Under the heading “sensitive biological resources,” the 528-page document lists marine mammals including walruses, sea otters, sea lions and seals — none of which are found anywhere close to the Gulf.

On the bright side, the report added that the Loc Ness Monster and the Giant Marine Jackalope would be protected in the case of an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
