Submitted by

Reducer2001 writes "Sworn testimony from a consultant for BP about the Texas City oil refinery explosion in 2005 reveals that BP had pre-determined the cost of a settlement for human fatalities. From the article: BP was not only willing to put a value on human life...it listed it at $20m for a single fatality incident, with the cost escalating for multiple deaths in the same accident."

What the large print giveth, the small print taketh away.
