Incoming BP chief executive 'sure there will be changes'

The American set to take over BP said Tuesday that in the aftermath of the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster, he's "sure there will be changes" in the oil industry.

"There's no question we're going to learn a lot from this accident in the Gulf coast. It's going to be about equipment, people, different companies, and as a result of that, we're going to learn a lot, both BP and the industry," Robert Dudley told reporters outside BP headquarters in London as he emerged alongside BP Chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg and outgoing Chief Executive Officer Tony Hayward.

The oil giant said earlier Tuesday that Dudley would replace Hayward as chief executive officer, effective October 1.

    has been BP deliberately KILLED from its inside???
    as you can read in my iReport (linked below) BP has had a tool to easily, quickly and cheaply STOP the oil spill from the EARLY DAYS of May:
    but they haven't used it, leaving this giant disaster to happen for TWO MORE MONTHS !!!
    so, "could" have "someone" inside BP deliberately done that to see the company's value to FALL very much and very quickly, to take over the company or sell it to another company for a few cents price???
    will, the Press, investigate on this hypothesis???

      For the record I'm not defending BP. I just think BreakingNews is an idiot. So does everyone else.

      Early message for Breaking News:

      hey breaking news, you're a fool.

      1) I don't work for BP.
      2) I do not own BP stock or stock options
      3) I believe BP is fully at fault.

      You can continue to call me qwerasdf-BP guy all you want because no one even believes you. I already told you I'm NOT defending BP and I don't condone their mistakes. I believe BP needs to take full responsibility. To answer your stupid question, I do not use Photoshop "for my job." However, as a photographer, I do occasionally use Photoshop, but not for the purpose of photographic alterations.

      Why don't you stop posting your 5-year old ideas and learn to speak real science and throw out real facts. You're as bad as the 9/11 conspiracy theorists.

    I'm sorry I've been such a troll on these CNN news blogs. I know my post have been annoying and idiotic. I went to my shrink today and he put me on some new meds. I'm hoping they'll work and I'll quit these ridiculous posts. Keep your fingers crossed as I will too.
