Ponies and Balloon Act! What a circus!
I have total respect for this woman. She was the one that came out and said the fishermen were afraid of BP, and wouldn't talk to the press.
Because she had the courage to stand up for the truth, she receives unprecedented access to the under goings on. The underbelly. Good on her!
DISGUSTING! I'm pissed. The f%*king EPA is completely lying, hiding and manipulating the truth!
For example. May 25th TAGA data from EPA website: www.epa.gov...
Can someone explain to me how when you set a detection limit of .2 you get a reading of .03, which is below the detection limit??
Thanks for posting the video. She did a GREAT speech.

Do you know what "Media" means? It is the plural form of "medium" which means "in the middle; an intermediary; a bridge; an ambassador; a conduit".
But...the conduit's insulation is all busted up and the copper is turning green and oil is burning what is left of the good connections! (Wow, analogy works better than I thought).
IF you want the information to get to everyone...
Send the information by word of mouth and e-mail ONLY. We want this information to last as long as possible...
Not hand it to the people who will get rid of it.
Come on now.
How do you save youtube videos to put it up again when TPTB remove it?
HOWEVER, what I am driving at are the rumors that corexit itself causes all sorts of horrible illness, cancers, organ failure etc. Now this may be because it changes the properties of the dangerous spill crap such that substances like benzene, H2S, etc lingers in the atmosphere and waters?
OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS :
Exposure guidelines have not been established for this product. Available exposure limits for the substance(s) are
Oil Mist TWA: 5 mg/m3
STEL: 10 mg/m3
Oil Mist TWA: 5 mg/m3
STEL: 10 mg/m3
HUMAN EXPOSURE CHARACTERIZATION :
Based on our recommended product application and personal protective equipment, the potential human exposure
I have been wondering about this and hoping someone who is knowledgeable could answer the question of exactly how/if corexit changes the properties of the spill pollutants. We know that 30% of the oil are volatiles that will evaporate off, but does corexit cause the oil ITSELF to atomize such that these dangerous substances never seperate, but rather change phase..evaporating, coming down in the rain, etc etc?

Thanks for posting that on corexit bpg131313. However, I don't read anything in there that makes it out to be of the human risk that is getting portrayed everywhere (I am certainly not advocating it, but just asking). What am I missing, its listed as very low human and environmental risk?

Through it all I still cannot wrap my head around the fact that BP, the one who caused the disaster, a corporation driven by PROFIT, is in charge of every aspect of the operation ... what the hell do we pay taxes for, if not to respond to emergencies that threaten the livelihood of our people and our land??
