Universities research ‘Oil Spill: Good or Bad?’ with ‘fast-track’ BP funding
AND THEY SAID BP DIDN’T CARE! Ha, well whoever said that is a bit of a cocksucker, because BP just announced that three lucky universities have been awarded a total of TWENTY-FIVE MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS to study “the distribution, composition and ecological interactions of oil and dispersant.” Oh Tony, it’s about time you used that sexy Hugh Grant twang to woo America’s academics, aka, “the small people with PhDs”:
“It is vitally important that research start immediately into the oil and dispersant’s impact, and that the findings are shared fully and openly,” said BP chief executive Tony Hayward. “We support the independence of these institutions and projects, and hope that the funding will have a significant positive effect on scientists’ understanding of the impact of the spill.”
What Tony Hayward wants to understand is, “Perchance there is a way we could maybe unspill this oil?”
America’s brightest academics will soon find out! Thank you for supporting Higher Learning, BP.
