Speaking of the military, contrast with:








A U.S. Air Force C-130 Hercules aircraft from the 910th Airlift Wing, Youngstown-Warren Air Reserve Station, Ohio, drops oil-dispersing chemicals into the Gulf of Mexico, in this photograph taken on May 9, 2010 and released on May 10.

I understand the astronauts on the space station can look out the window and see it with the naked eye. When you can do that you know it is a big mess. In fact the biggest mess ever.

WTF, spraying chemicals to break up the oil!??! How does this work?!? Can chemicals really magically make the oil dissapear?!? Where does the oil go! For real, wtf. Does the oil vanish into thin air or sink to the bottom of the ocean or just what.

I want to know what the F those chemicals are going to do. Do they just turn the black oil blue so you can't see it anymore?

This is such a mess. We our killing our earth. All those poor animals that don't deserve this.

If you ask me I say it is little more than a detergent to make the oil mix more freely with the water just like when you wash dishes. If you ask me it is just making the slick spread that much faster.

I did some checking and found out this is one of the chemicals they are using to clean up the oil slick. It is what they used in the Exxon Valdez oil spill.
I have never tried to post a file on ATS so I may not get it right.

Corexit 9500 MSDS sheet

Those are with out doubt both disturbing and mesmerizing.It is in some odd way of karma, but of the war in Iraq maybe not. Every thing we see is an act of karma, well almost everything we see "happen".
What I find more disturbing is the absolute disregard and neglect of the media when it comes to this. You would imagine they would be all over this, and hence it can only make you ponder what they are waiting for (maybe when this evil black shadow reaches shore?).
Then you wont be able to get away from it.
One thing is for damn sure. And that my friends is those boats honestly appeared to be doing 1/10 the effort than you would imagine would be going into this. I dont understand why they dont just use the hay like those cow boys showed us? Or how about the woman that found out using hair is an amazing way to harvest oil from the water?
If I was a farmer and I lived near by I'd get out and get that hay in there.
As of now I'm going to give this a 26% chance of just blowing over us getting on with our lives and a good 74% chance that this is going to come back and bite us on our proverbial ass. so to speak.

btw
you can only wonder if this stuff is good for the fishies.

found a little info on Corexit 9500:

www.valdezlink.com...

Corexit 9500 with ethylene oxide? * "As stated in MSDS, once it had one, Corexit 9500 can cause central nervous system depression, nausea, and unconsciousness. It can cause liver, kidney damage, and red blood cell hemolysis with repeated or prolonged exposure through inhalation or ingestion according to the MSDS. The threat to human health via exposure is characterized as 'MODERATE'." uspoly.com/dispersit


And here is a washington post article on it. It's too late for me to find any info on it but there is a lot of useful info. I think they are saying it could be good, could be bad:

www.washingtonpost.com...

Responders to the downed Deepwater Horizon rig have already spent days applying more than 253,000 gallons of oil dispersant -- Nalco's Corexit 9500 -- to break up the tens of thousands of gallons of oil that have reached the ocean's surface.

253,000 gallons have been used since may 6th. WOW. That can't be good... WOW

Ok, I am usually mr. cynical anti-granola muncher anti-hippie guy... The type that laughs at the mess left behind at earth day celebrations.

But this honestly disturbs me... alot.

I didn't realize how bad it is till I saw it. The tiny boats taking on all that oil almost look pathetic.

This is a real problem.

Solutions anyone?

I am just too angry to say how I feel.

I hate them. Right now, hate them. I cannot believe the composure of the BP spokesman on the news.

This is a *&%$# disaster!!! and he was like, "yeah... in 4 days we will try again, but that might not work, so we could be looking until August before it is fixed"

grrrr

WTF is wrong with this????

Where is the SAFETY SHUT OFF?

Stamping my feet right now!
It is just gut wrenching...

But... when I saw them try to burn it off, I actually thought of the lake of fire... Rev. Throw BP in there!!

Absolutely. I agree dgtempe!

so sad...

I am selling my car and buying a push bike.

Truly. I don't want to support the oil industry anymore...

Well, I think it goes without saying that it would be a smart idea to boycott BP.

(Dang, I am starting to sound like the environmentalists that I make fun of!)

this is impossible, because there are no aircraft with the tech to spray aerosols.

i blame everyone at the top for this. Like i already posted in another thread....the president should be shadowing the BP execs with secret service in tow 24hrs a day until this is resolved....instead hes dilly dallying around the country speaking at graduations and other bs. Even if the pres cant actually do anything, he at least needs to pretend like its a serious matter by making a showing.

bp also needs to have ppl working 24 hour shift rotations if they arent already doing so.

and whats up with this absurd 'top hat' idea or watever it is...this smaller version of the cap that didnt work before? Is this really the best idea the smartest ppl in the world can come up with?

Wow, just wow......

Great job Loam for putting this footage up here. I must say, it looks very very bad. The scale of the oil slicks are enormous.

I don't know about the rest of you, but it gave me a really bad feeling while watching this video. A feeling of anger, sadness and disappointment in "we" as a human race.

Are you human? Really, I am not being facetious at all, but do you have any fiber of compassion at all in your being? "Gloomers"? No, not the end of the world. A total environmental disaster where we will feel the impact for probably a decade or more? Absolutely. Guess that isn't "BRUTAL" enough for you so why discuss it.

One inch of beach sand that has been tainted? WHA??? Are you not even researching? Or are you simply looking at a couple posts on one particular website. I can't wait until the end of this month when entire beaches are covered in almost black soot, just for the sheer fact that you will look like such a jerk.
