BP emails show disregard of safety and corner cutting before accident; Kevin Costner's solution

Andrew Miller of ABC has a blog entry Monday, “BP Emails show disregard of Nightmare well”, with link here. The emails reveal a debate within the company about using “centralizers” on the rig shortly before the blowout. The link is here. The story comes from the column "Political Punch : Power, pop, and probings from ABC News Senior White House Correspondent Jake Tapper."
The original rig had been damaged by Hurricane Ida in November, and BP was encountering unexpected utilization fees.

Here is actor Kevin Costner’s solution with a machine invented 12 years ago for oil filtering, a machine for which he is a major investor. Costner says that the technology has been known for years.

Here is CBS News’s YouTube interview
