If it's a diesel, problem solved... just siphon feul for the boat off the surface of the water in the Gulf. Cost: $10 for a garden hose and $30 for
a hand pump.
Those responsible for using and permitting the use of this Corexit crap should get federal charges filed and never see the outside world again. Not
only are they committing crimes, but they are tampering with the evidence by hiding it a mile under the Gulf.
Now that the oil is "ostensibly" in a "flume" environment it does not make sense for them to use the Corexit any longer .. However, I heard that
they ordered another 100,000 gallons a week or so back.
I genuinely hope that the people who are working for BP BEGIN
getting health check-ups including blood, urine, and breath tests (exhaling the
vapor, indicates collection in the lungs +) ... if for no other reason that to document the exposure and allow the development of ameliorating
treatments for this type of situation
[[(also the records are necessary if they find they are dying in a few years, or BP will not pay for anything ... "oh, your food poisoning caught up
with you?" ..
Since BP has skirted this issue by hiring out of town people and busing in the temps, then the Gov should step in on behalf of the People whom it
represents and demand that all workers be given some testing at least on a bi-weekly basis, with the option for more visits if necessary.
If the GOV does not make it mandatory, then the people cannot move to do it,
because they have to have the pay check. (This seems the worst
round of disaster capitalism yet! .. but maybe just because it is on our own shores!) !!
Of ... By ... and FOR .. right? So lets let the CDC (who went there exactly for these reasons) do what they came for, even if it has to be an
executive order. ... People who cleaned the Exxon Valdez did not fair well.
God bless us all.
