Contents Notes
The authors feel that BP's Oil Spill Response Plan was pure fantasy. For the future, our emphasis needs to be on true prevention, and our risk-management polices need to be based on better understandings of humans as well as hardware. Prologue: The deep-water horror zone -- A question for our time -- The Macondo mess -- Stored sunlight and its risks -- Colonel of an industry -- Barons and barrels -- Off the edge in all directions -- "Energy independence" -- To know us is to love us? -- Cleaning up -- Today and tomorrow.
