If rain storms can pick up fish out of the ocean, then drop them on land, then they certainly have the capacity to pick up oil, too.

Besides, as any chemist will tell you, the various petrochemicals found in crude oil evaporate even without a storm picking them up! Oil, in other words, does evaporate into the air. Or, more accurately, some of the lighter chemicals in crude oil evaporate even at temperatures of around 100 degrees (F). Those are Gulf Coast temperatures.

Thoughts ATS?

I was always skeptic about the it's raining oil in louisiana because there was only one youtube video showing it, where were all the other videos?
Where were other residents claiming the same?

What is going on and what is the truth?

I find it easy to believe that the oil in the YouTube Video was just oil on the street. If they want to show oily rain, they're going to have to collect it in a clean container. I don't believe the video. So, I'm with Rachel on that part.

However, I also find it plausible and even probable, that some part of the oil and/or dispersant would evaporate and rain down on the earth. Again, collection and analysis are in order.

In my eyes I suppose it's possible, but I am not an expert on the subject. However given the facts presented in the OP I think that it is totally plausible.

I'm keeping a bowl on the roof of my apartment here in Southwestern Canada to find out when it comes. I'm not going to trust the government on this one.

I will look for it.
I will smell for it.
I will taste for it.

im pretty sure the oil was in the streets already. i dont recall there being a large enough storm out there to just "pick up" a lot of oil and disperse it through rain. not a scientist, but i just have a feeling it wasnt raining oil.

Not sure if it was oil or somthing else but last week it rained just north of Tampa, FL. When I left for work the next morning I pulled out and the sun blurred out my entire window in an odd dotted stain.

I ran my defroster and nothing, so I went inside and got paper towels. Put in some solid scrubbing and still not much. It was just pushing it around kinda and out of the corner of my eye I saw it!

I freaking oil rainbow coating over my entire window with a dotted pattern. I did not notice the oil rainbow at first as it was very faint and was not able to see it directly. Mostly when looking at the window on an angle with the sun shining just right. Either way I was not going to go crazy but was wondering why it was not wiping off.


Finally I got dish soap and a scrubber to clean it and sure as shiz that worked. I have pics but unfortunently this site is not compatable with my 12.5 MP digi. I only get an error when uploading media, happens on ANYTHING i take with my digi.


Someone really needs to simplify the uploading process and bump up the file size max.

Your camera should have software with it to upload your pics onto your computer. Then you can resize the pics and upload them to the media site.

Would love to see your pictures.

You could just use tinypic.com thats what I use for pics and I dont think they have a file size limit. Or you could resize your images, 12.5MP is huge.

Well, if Rachel Maddow is trying to debunk them, then logic suggests to me that it is real. That woman disgusts me to no end, and can never be trusted on anything.

You can resize the image in mspaint in terms of actual size and therefore file size.

i dont know about raining oil but im pretty sure the dispersants could rain over the gulf states. GOOD LUCK TO THOSE IN THE GULF

I will try tinypic.com tonight, I have tried mspaint like I do on my350z.com but was still not working.

Really poor job.


Unless I missed it she didn't address any of the "gases" in specific and just summarily dismissed them as floating off into the air like pretty little butterflies. Yeah...that's on a sunny day.

No mentions of methane or hydrogen sulfide or any of the Corexit toxic mess particularly as it comingles with the oil.

So technically, she's right...black oil, Texas tea is not going to rain down from the sky. But a lot of other bad stuff is. And it's going into the water too.

And as to the BP "experts" and spokespeople? I propose they and their families frolic on the beach and drink the water.

Oil evaporates, but at different rates. There are different size molecules attached together to make oil. The smaller molecules will evaporate faster and more easily than the larger ones. It also depends on temperature, heat allows for faster evaporation.

When burning oil, as BP is doing, the smoke evaporates. Burning oil also makes the temperature rise in that specific area which will allow more oil evaporation.

Areas covered by oil slicks will heat up faster. The surface will hold the heat.

Hotter temperatures create more (quantity) storms and more violent (quality) storms. The Gulf will be hotter this year than it would normally because of everything that's going on.

I would still be more concerned with the chemical evaporation than the oil evaporation.

it took dish soap, a scotch bright and about 2 min of scrubbing to get it clear to drive.

Also odd part was my Mother "not I" but the owner of that blue accord said "can you smell that????" there was an odd scent in the air that morning.

I was on my motorcycle yesterday in Clearwater (just west of Tampa) when i got caught in the rain and I didnt see jack. Also went thru some of the rain today on my way home and didnt see anything. That stuff in your first pick looks like dust and pollen from the trees. Not saying that it cant happen or that it didnt, just saying that im closer to the water and ran thru the same storms and didnt see anything.

Interesting. It seems to form in little globs whatever it is. And the fact that it was so hard to clean off is very strange. Thanks for the pictures!
