I must be missing something here. Your supposition is that BP intentionally ruptured the well so that Nalco could make a ton of money off of the sale of their dispersant products?
As the prevailing winds head west, it is not beyond the realms of possibility that see a marked increase in the toxicity of rainfall in Europe over the Winter months!

I don't know I'm not buying into the whole crisis being created to use corexit. Seems they would have more of a profit just getting the oil out like normal than creating a mess by destroying a rig. But like they've been saying in this adminstration never let a good crisis go to waste, I can see that they are gonna use this to their benefit to the max. And the use of corexit is just a bonus from what happened in the gulf. My opinion on the whole situation is that they cut a lot of corners with the horizon rig resulting in the failure of the entire process. Once the rig blew up and things started snowballing from there. Back to the crisis go to waste statement, thats when they kicked in high gear and started exploiting every possible angle that was imaginable. It will be interesting in an hour when the potus comes on and starts preaching his crap and wade nonsense.
