This is a really good idea IMO. I hope they decide to use this if it will work. I also saw a video earlier today about salons saving up hair, yup
that's right hair for use in the clean up. If the hair works, well that would be great but I would rather see the hay beng used. I would think it
would be easier to clean up after it's done it job than hair (Ewww). I will post a link to the video if I can find it again.
Ok don't knoe where the video was but here is a link to a news story on it:
Human hair use for oil spill
Also, I was reading of pet hair being used as well. Makes sense to me.
As far as the oil being that weird red. I thought that was due to whomever spraying some kind of chemical onto the oil to break it up so it's not
just one huge slick. I could be mistaken though and recalling wrongly. I will look into this as well and post any link I can find.
Thank you for the video OP. It brought my hopes up a good bit seeing this. Now, if those BP idiots could manage to stop the actualy spill we might be
heading in the right direction.
Edited to add- I can't find anything saying why it's red. Maybe I misunderstood something but I could have sworn that was the cause. Now this is
really going to bug me
