The BP in Crude Oil

As oil giants boasted billions of dollars in record profits for decades, I wonder if the BP oil disaster could have been averted or better contained with more profit allocated to the science of developing better emergency management safeguards. Let's break it all down for the kin folk. As far as government regulation goes, I am required by law to wear a seatbelt restraint just to operate my personal vehicle with the gasoline in question.
In an age when we need to lessen our dependency on petroleum and explore greener alternatives, drilling for oil should not occur this close inland or at an ocean depth that we risk destroying one side of the country in a single accident. Watching an underwater smokestack of oil pollute the ocean at a rate of millions of gallons per day exposes corporate greed at the expense of a social responsibility to the planet. Spectating a man-made disaster day after day for months with no end in sight is unmerciful.
The first thing you know old BP is a millionaire but the kin folk say its called crude oil for a reason.
