BP aims to raise $9bn from sale of assets to China

Looks like BP are starting to sell off parts of the company. See this I think is a bit of a concern. If BP becomes controlled by the Chinese oil company (which is government owned), I wonder how easy it will be for the US government to enforce payment for cleanup.

Afterall, what if the Chinese turn around and say we will just take it out of the trillions of debt of yours we already own...

Why the Web of Life is Dying...

Could you survive with just half of your organs? Think about it. What if you had just half your brain, one kidney, half of your heart, one lung, half a liver and only half of your skin? It would be pretty hard to survive right? Sure, you could survive losing just one kidney or half of your liver, but at some point, losing pieces from all of your organs would be too much and you would die.
