No, they'll be around. They won't make up the deficit for a couple of years, but you guys grossly underestimate the amount of money the really big oil companies make.

It's not that they don't have enough money to pay. It's that, as a large private corporation whose sole purpose is to maximize profits (the reason for this entire bloody mess in the first place) they're going to make a few shows of good faith like the escrow fund, and then they're going to start stalling and weasling and end up paying as little as they possibly can instead of what's actually needed.
