As a short-sighted, greedy corporation based in Britain run by Tony Hayward, but with operations all over the world, BP created the worst environmental disaster in world history, by allowing millions, if not billions, of gallons of oil to be spilled into the Gulf of Mexico, killing both workers and marine life.

Bad Practices
Pulling out a failsafe on a blowout preventer to open up a port for instrumentation, not bothering to keep fresh batteries in an emergency control pannel, using seawater instead of drilling-mud during cap-off, 'cause, ya know, we can save more of that for the next job, and then, once methane and water form clathrates in the drill-pipe, using cement that liberates heat during curing to, perhaps, explosively destabilize those clathrates...the littany of bp astounds.
