To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead.

LONDON—After his company agreed to plead guilty to 14 criminal charges in connection with the Deep Horizon accident and oil spill, BP chief executive Bob Dudley released an official statement Thursday expressing his “profound and heartfelt remorse” over the loss of $4.5 billion in fines. “All of us at BP deeply regret any negligence on our part that may have led to this tragic oil spill and the tremendous damage it has inflicted upon our profitability,” Dudley said of the disaster that may eventually cost his company more than $40 billion in settlements and penalties. “We never intended to upset the incredibly delicate balance of our finances, and efforts to restore the billions of dollars lost in this unspeakable catastrophe will continue until we ensure ensure just compensation for every last shareholder.” Reached for further comment, Dudley told reporters that while he feels “tremendous sorrow over losing $4.5 billion,” he’s just thankful it only amounts to 1 percent of the company’s gross revenue for 2011.

“Though the BP criminal case is settled, today’s accident makes clear that the hazards of oil and gas drilling are not in America’s rear view. It is a sad reminder that offshore drilling is an inherently dangerous business. Workers and communities are put in harm’s way every day and will continue to be as long as we prioritize this risky energy development. Our leaders must keep that squarely in mind when considering where and how to allow further drilling along our coasts and in our communities.”

Lanny Breuer, head of the Dept. of Justice's criminal division, said these BP well-site leaders acted negligently on April 20, 2010, when the Deepwater Horizon crew lost control of the well it had drilled, leading to an explosion that killed 11 and unleashed the gigantic, 3-month oil spill. Mr. Breuer added that none of the penalties paid are tax-deductible.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida Gov. Rick Scott's office is sharply criticizing a settlement reached between the federal government and oil giant BP. Melissa Sellers, a spokeswoman for the Republican governor, called the deal unacceptable because it does not direct any of the money to the state. Part of the deal calls for a national foundation to spend money on conservation projects in Florida. Sellers said the agreement does not adequately compensate the state for spill impacts.
 
What matters far more is that the company will now be branded as a felon. In the Texas City disaster, BP pleaded guilty to one felony count, despite the loss of 15 lives. Even then, it was a division of the company, not the company itself, that bore the distinction as a corporate criminal.

Colombia gets world's first certified REDD project on collective lands

A conservation project in Colombia has broken new ground in the world of forest carbon credits. The project, run as partnership between an Afro-indigenous community and a Colombian company, is the first REDD+ project certified under the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) in Colombia. More importantly, it is also the first certified REDD+ project on community-owned, collectively-titled land.

The 13,465-hectare Chocó-Darién Conservation Corridor REDD+ Project is located in the northeastern-most part of Colombia near the border with Panama. Until recently, the area was beset by violent conflict which had displaced many of the region's traditional residents, including members of the COCOMASUR landholder association. But with the restoration of relative peace to the area, the community began to re-establish itself on lands to which it holds collective title. The area includes large tracts of lowland rainforest that are at risk of illegal logging, conversion to cattle pasture, mining, and land-grabbing by outsiders. The new project aims to cut these risks by strengthening COCOMASUR's land claims and improving natural resource management. Al least half the revenue from sales of carbon credits generated by avoiding deforestation will go to the community. Project activities including raising awareness of collective identity and rights, resolving land disputes, participatory land use planning, and sustainable economic alternatives.
