The Largest Chemical Experiment Ever Attempted

In this article Casey DeMoss Roberts takes a closer look at dispersants, specifically various forms of Corexit, the versions being used in massive amounts in the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. Check out the entire article, but we’re sharing the conclusion here, which echoes what scientist have been saying for weeks now – the use of Corexit, or any other toxic dispersant, in this volume and at this level has never been done. EPA is simply nodding in agreement with BP’s use of the Gulf of Mexico as their own personal science project. I’d prefer we didn’t dump first, measure second.

We do, however, know the result of dispersant use in other large oil spills, which you can read about here.

In the meantime, with the benefit of the internet and ability to share information real time, I have a feeling we can get to the bottom of things pretty quickly just by following the trail of facts. Facts only here (in no particular order) – you draw the conclusions. Continue reading
