Dear: ATS Members

BP with the help of the EPA has approved continued use of the chemical dispersant Corexit® 9500, Corexit® 9527, and COREXIT EC9580A for shoreline dispersant of long chain hydrocarbons to short chain hydrocarbons. The Corexit different formulations is a three stage process of breaking long chain hydrocarbons into short chain hydrocarbons; which allows these new smaller hydrocarbons to combine more easily with water. This allows the smaller chain hydrocarbons to decay over a period of time but, does not remove the hydrocarbons in anyway shape or form. In fact it allows all of the oil to be integrated into the Aquatic system which then filters into all Aquatic life; this will cause many unknowns for future generation that rely on the oceans of the this planet for sources of food and their lively hoods. The obvious problem here is the containment of this disaster, and to assure future generation they will not pay the ultimate price for our stupidity in handling this disaster.

The above does nothing to solve the long term problems of this disaster; it only prolongs the inevitable “Out of Sight, Out of Mind!” mentality of both the EPA and BP. The above chemical solutions have many toxic chemicals that have been shown to cause sickness and in some cases death. The American people have been put in the “DARK” about what BP and the EPA is doing to our Eco System.

A real solution to this spill problem is known to be a clean and environmentally safe way of dealing with long chain and short chain hydrocarbons. The real solution of this spill is known to completely eliminate all forms of hydrocarbons both on the surface and below the surface. The real solution of this spill is known to be safe to all forms of life and not to cause future toxins that will pop up in future food chains. The solution is “Geobacter” a genus of proteobacteria; this anaerobic respiration bacteria species; has the ability to turn long chain and short chain hydrocarbons into environmentally safe carbon dioxide; these types of Geobacter can completely eliminate these hydrocarbon chains from both waterborne and ground penetrated hydrocarbon chains. These Geobacter’s can self replicate quickly in a high concentration of hydrocarbons; and use the hydrocarbons as a source of food. As their source of food is eliminated (hydrocarbons) so are they along with the volume of their food source, they simply die off and decay becoming useful sources of organic material. This is a real solution for this problem, why BP scientists are not discussing the use of these Geobacter’s is ridiculous to me as a scientist. The EPA needs to step in and stop this travesty to all life on this planet; and force BP to use these Geobacter’s to clean up this mess.

We have tons of oil spewing out of the gulf already and you want to turn that oil into carbon dioxide!

I don't think that is a good idea as we already have a lot of carbon in the air adding a lot more wouldn't be a good idea.

Anyway how would you think millions of dead organisms would do to the life down in the gulf?

What about the organisms that eat the Geobacter?

What about the organisms that eat the organisms that eat the Geobacter?

If I am mistaken would that not lead to a increase in the animal populations around it?

Wouldn't an increase of that magnitude also not lead to an increase of predators around the area?

This could be potentially hazardous to the humans that reside around the gulf.
(But it would help them with the food supply.)
Which also could lead to overfishing and such.

Anyway it might sound like a good idea at first but then you have to get into the details.

One real solution is to find out what the hell is really going on down there.... so far all we have is electronic imagery and sound bites all controlled by BP and friends (media and government)

Doesn't it cross anyone's mind that the only image we get of the gusher comes from BP? Has anyone on ATS taken a deep diving sub down there to verify this imagery being fed to us? These images might be coming from a different ocean for all we know. In one of the images I saw an eel swim right through this billowing stuff like it was just a routine heat scrub. And then off he went on his regular routine. This whole thing is getting fishier and fishier.... Haven’t we learned anything from 911? They showed us 2 planes knocking down 3 buildings in one day causing 2 wars… all done through the magic of electronic imagery.
