That won't happen. Even if it did get into a worst case scenario like that people would survive. Humanity and nature in general has been through some harsh times. We can survive some toxic rain and pollution. It won't wipe out the entire continent. That's just some blatant fearmongering.

To claim that corexit 9500 is going to wipe out life on North America is fear mongering, why? Because no one here, nor Sascha, nor any environmental agency, NO ONE knows what effects there may be in such large quantities.
We do know that corexit was used to clean up the Exxon spill in Alaska and there is presently thriving life in Alaska, no utter devastation there.

The area is not thriving at all , people are still ill from the effects of the clear up, depends what you term devastation , lost revenue, broken homes, loss of life, ill health , land still poluted. Just because you dont hear about it on the "news" does not mean it does not exist.
people were informed it was safe to work there and live there, they were misled at best or lied to, and I would err on the side of the latter.
re: trade winds and movement of pollution, yes i agree it will effects large areas, however now is the time to get out an lobby..... BP are going to go under or bankrupt itself... then who is going to pay.

It seems like damage brought by the oil gusher has spread way beyond the ocean, coastal areas and beaches. Collateral damage now appears to include agricultural damage way inland Mississippi.
A mysterious "disease" has caused widespread damage to plants from weeds to farmed organic and conventionally grown crops. There is very strong suspicion that ocean winds have blown Corexit aerosol plumes or droplets and that dispersants have caused the unexplained widespread damage or "disease".
