Yeah, they haven't been British Petroleum for some time (since 2001). People that keep using it...IDK. Maybe they think it's more amusing? Maybe they're very out of date? Maybe they're just tools? Who knows?

I wouldn't have thought it would enter your mind, tbh, it's just not a good time to be British, right now, and we (read me) don't need any more potential crap. It's my issue, not yours, but thank you for changing it. <3

We all need to do better with oil. A LOT better.

Leave it to the press to be entirely inaccurate in big areas and then try to keep their credibility. Grr.

I don't know what's up with the job offer thing--it seems to be another branch of BP (their supposed "green" branch, which is painfully ironic even to think about.

I haven't heard about any bad stuff about the UK--probably because I tend to watch/listen to the progressive stuff and they're not about blaming countries, I dunno. I believe you when you say it's there, though, and ick. That's just awful.

We all need to do better with oil. A LOT better.

Eventually we're all going to run out, and then we'll have no choice. Although I don't think it's at all fringe-y to say that when we finally do run out, there's a real possibility that "civilization" will come to a crashing halt. Because it's not just gas and heat and light, it's building structures and pipes and medical equipment. Scary stuff.

I just hope this kind of disaster is at least the very beginning of a wakeup call for everyone. This is what oil does, and oh, by the way, we're going to run out of it.

And btw, I've always been a fan of the UK, even before I knew diddly about politics (hey, I've been using a dorky bastardised version of British spelling since I was twelve because I think it's prettier *g*). Also, two words: Monty Python.
