DAMN! i was 14 when i wateched the valdeez spill live on tv. WOW! CNN mostly.
YOu know whats really a slap in the face? Yesterday, a commercia i saw on tv, was a BP clean up, with some joe schmos acting all sincere and
innocent. now...here's the kicker. The guy was talking about how we at BP are doing all we can to clean the oil up, making the world a healthy place
for all...their was not ONE, NOT ONE image of oil tainted water. It showed pictures of guys in water gear with hoses, a nice beach area with blue
water on the horizon in the backgroudn, not one oil coated bird or animal. i was FUMING mad when i saw tha commercia, how dare they. In fact, the
commercai video might be on youtube* imma look for it later. i was FUMING mad.
They should have at least showed, the men up to thier ankles in crude, crude soaked birds, fish with crude oozing outta thier gills, and maybe as
kicker, an exxon valdeez ship broke in half
Makes on wonder, WHY the workers arnt allowed to wear saftey gear over their faces? this sounds like something outta WWI, when msutard gas was
used, only in this scenario, yuodde be courmarshalled for wearing protection...makes NO sense. the gear and sfatey technolgy is thier, but their not
allowd to use it? kinda creepy you ask me...
I read an article on an oil engineer forum once, how toxic is auto oil* Thiers this one, guy was a mechanic for many many decades. one day he got
skin cancer on his fingers. doctors were baffled. His conclusion and investigating, USD motor oil is highly toxic. its not the oil itself thats toxic,
its the bi products of internal engine combusting. after 24 years of not wearing gloves doing oil change, he got skin cancer* i use nitrile goves now,
since i do my own*
i had read, natural unrefined crude is highly toxic, but never read any MSDS fact sheets on it. jsut what i read from other oil engineers.
