Interesting perspectives on the current disaster compared to previous
environmental disasters in the USA. Of course I knew about the Dust
Bowl, but had never heard of the Johnstown Flood or the Lakeview Gusher.
BP should have been using something like the Proactionary Principle
-- the company's operations, at least in this case (and probably
others) completely lacked any foresight in planning. It seems that BP
failed to plan ways of stopping oil leaks from deep water.
