2. Analyze what went wrong and learn from it (e.g. don't use Haliburton?)
3. Put lessons learned to use on future drilling projects.
4. Get away from using oil for power wherever possible, for example, wind (shameless plug), solar, nuclear (if the waste problem can be licked), and/or something else not yet invented...
A solid plan, IMO.

In an ideal world that would be great. It is not feasible in the real world. How are you going to take 40 billion dollars from a company before they do something wrong, how do you decide which 3 million homes get the money, how do you know it worked, etc...
In that ideal world, there'd be no war, no greed, nobody cheating on their spouse, no kids making fun of other kids, no need for a black market for anything, plentiful food for everyone, no poverty, no landfills, and it would be really easy for me to acquire and install a T-56 in my Buick.
