It looks like Lindsey Williams needs to learn either the metric system or the difference between a decimal and a comma. The numbers are basically what he's talking about, only he has magnified them by a factor of 1,000.

Hydrogen Sulfide safe levels – 5 to 10 ppb, tested level this past week presently is 1,200 ppb (Oh my God, that’s 120 times safe levels!)... and you wonder why people are getting sick.”

RAIN? YOU WANT IT TO RAIN?
here is a little scenario to consider.
crude oil rises to surface of ocean. being black and sitting under the sun for days on end heating up and rising with water vapor into the atmosphere. now this cloud of toxic fumes and water vapor moves inland where it meets a point of the mainland where the vapor cools and condenses. at this point there are still micro droplets of petroleum and other toxic chemicals from the spill still attached to the vapor. and it cools and condenses it forms water droplets and soon turns to rain. if i were living off the coast of the gulf i would be getting the hell out of there asap.
its called the water cycle and you will start to see it in deadly effect very soon.
good luck to the people who live there.

ppb means parts per billion, like 1 ml in 1 billion mls, the billion is in the divisor:
1 ppb = 1/1,000,000,000
1 ppm is 1 ml in 1,000,000: 1 ppm = 1/1,000,000
Now which number is larger?

Are we still considering Alex Jones' show a reliable source of information? Really?!
Take a look at the official reports from the EPA. Unless my math is way off, and 0.1ppm is equal to 1,200ppb, then this Alex Jones clip is absolute fabrication.
