A greater danger involving Corexit 9500, and as outlined by Russian scientists in this report, is that with its 2.61ppm toxicity level, and when combined with the heating Gulf of Mexico waters, its molecules will be able to “phase transition” from their present liquid to a gaseous state allowing them to be absorbed into clouds and allowing their release as “toxic rain” upon all of Eastern North America.

Who hired you to derail?
You will always demand proof, but will shoot down everything that shows evidence.
UGH! YOU PROVE, ME RIGHT! Show some evolved behaviors would you?

On another note, I've been sick all week, with severe dizziness and headaches with some nausea. However, no one else around me has had these symptoms so i think it may just be vertigo. I've had it once before but it was several years ago. Today was the first day i felt some relief, and it was the first day we had hardly any rain.
Probably just a coincidence though.
RACHEL MADDOW, HOST: Now, if you just put two and two together, if that‘s all you do, you get oil evaporating to the sky and then coming back down to earn as - as this YouTube video from suburban New Orleans that keeps landing in our inbox over and over and over again.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: You see it. I mean, it‘s raining oil. It is literally raining oil right here in River Ridge. Very heavy rainstorm came through and you can see this is oil. Isn‘t that crazy, dude? And you smell it. We‘re smelling the oil.
It‘s everywhere all the way on the city sidewalk which means it‘s all over the grass. It‘s all over the street. Unbelievable.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
MADDOW: Unbelievable. Exactly. Precisely unbelievable. The sky might rain frogs. Sometimes I really do think those are next. And high winds or one of those waterspout tornado things might carry some oil from the gulf onto the shore. But raining oil? Not likely to happen in this lifetime or on this planet.
We took the raining oil theory to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration - NOAA. They told us, quote, “The notion of oily rain is not realistic. Oil, as a whole, does not evaporate, therefore, it is not possible that it would be in the clouds or coming down in the form of rain.
Oil is made up of component parts, some of which are volatile and do evaporate into the atmosphere. These separate and diffuse out into the air. Other component parts do not evaporate and that is what is left behind in weathered oil residue or tar balls.”
So what the guy in that YouTube video likely saw is just the ordinary oil that cars and trucks drip onto the street every day, getting hit by actually rain, water rain, and making gas-station-y, oily rainbows on the ground. It is gross and scary enough to consider that, to think about how saturated our world is with oil.
But the good news is, I‘m happy to report is oil is not raining from the sky - yet. Maybe after the frogs and boils.

Only a complete moron who has never had a chemistry course fails to understand the concept of steam distillation as applicable here; many of the chemicals (e.g. C5 on up) in the oil/water can be vaporized and combined with water in rain.
Anyone who has seen (and understood) the steam distillation chemistry lab in high school would understand this.
