WAS THE DEEPWATER HORIZON ACCIDENT CAUSED, IN PART, BY THE INDUSTRIAL AND GOVERNMENT EXEMPTIONS IN THE ENGINEERING PRACTICE LAWS?

SHORT ANSWER: PROBALY YES

By John F Heneage, PE

Politicians argue that it is not time to figure out who is responsible or what caused the accident, they say we can figure this out later. Translation: We might have indirectly had a role in causing this accident and we need time to cover it up and re-direct the associated inquiries. Direct answer: Politicians and corporate management had a direct and causal relationship to the accident, specifically by failing to require licensed engineers be part of the process, lay persons were allowed to make key technical decisions that facilitated the tragedy.
