Barium = Radioactive compound. Also remember how the dispersant was used from conventional spraying system's jet-sprayed from the wings of a plane flying at low altitude to spray the Corexit 9500 onto the crude oil.
Barium is also USED in Chemtrails.

To think the unthinkable...no amount of money in the world will wooth those mens souls if it was intentional. Some day the darkeness the engulfs them will be darker and suffocate them just like the oil.
The destruction is set, too much has been lost and will not be recovered anytime in the near future.
I did a thread on Prince William Sound www.abovetopsecret.com...
Recent Photos From Prince William Sound
...The Oil from The Valdez is still there! Check out the video in that thread, the marine biologist says you can still smell the oil now 20 years later

Thank you, BurntheShips, for posting this info!
BrokenCar, isn't it obvious that the ONLY reason BP would use something as toxic as Corexit 9500, when other safer & MORE EFFECTIVE oil dispersants exist AND not allow workers to use safety gear is because they WANT people to be poisoned!!!
It is not surprising that some in industry would want to use Corexit. According to media reports, Nalco, the producers of Corexit, stand to make $800 thousand to $6.5 million per day from dispersant sales. Nalco's board of directors includes a former BP executive and board member.
What is surprising, however, is that a major federal agency, tasked with protecting the public, would allow industry to call the shots.
It is an outrage that Corexit continues to jeopardize both the health of the public and of the Gulf marine life exposed to the chemical. Both the EPA and BP are to blame, with the former allowing the latter to shoot first, ask questions later (and act surprised when the answer involves documented toxicity). This is why, despite the Administration's claim that they are demanding answers from BP, it is we who must demand that our government stop asking BP what they intend to do and start telling them what they are required to do.
The burning of the spill on the open water and by the Q4000, the oilfield construction vessel now collecting and burning oil and gas at the Deepwater site around the clock, creates extremely hazardous byproducts. Since the burning is happening so close to the water, the relative coolness of the water keeps the flames from destroying as much of the oil and gas as they would normally, most likely mutating rather than destroying a large amount of chemicals. The resulting chemicals are termed “products of incomplete combustion,” or PICs.
PICs produced would include highly carcinogenic chemicals, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, or PAHs, according to Schade, which are known to damage human DNA and contribute to birth defects. “They are much worse than the typical straight-chain hydrocarbons,” Schade said. “You should definitely stay away from that smoke plume. … Anyone who is working out there is at much greater risk.”
That plume is 60 miles southeast of Grand Isle, Louisiana, and frequently blows toward land.
While most of the attention so far has been on the millions of gallons of oil that have escaped from the damaged BP rig in the Gulf of Mexico, many environmentalists are now wondering if the real danger to humans from this whole crisis may be the massive amounts of benzene and hydrogen sulfide that are escaping into the air. Hydrogen sulfide is a chemical asphyxiant, similar to carbon monoxide and cyanide gases. It causes "biochemical suffocation" by inhibiting cellular respiration and the uptake of oxygen. Benzene is a highly carcinogenic gas that can cause death if inhaled at high enough concentrations. Not only that, benzene has been shown to cause leukemia in all its forms.
High levels of both gases have been detected at testing stations in the Gulf of Mexico. In addition, it is being reported that many fishermen in the Gulf that have been assisting with cleanup efforts have been getting seriously ill from breathing that air. There have been reports of symptoms including headaches, nausea, dizziness, burning eyes, coughing, sore throats, and stuffy sinuses. So as this oil spill continues and even more of these gases are released, are people across the southeast United States about to start breathing air that is filled with highly toxic gases?
On May 14 WWLTV in New Orleans ran a report on the levels of Hydrogen Sulfide and Benzene in the air at that time. 5-10 parts per billion is the established allowable amount for Hydrogen Sulfide. WWLTV reported that on May 3 the level was recorded at 1,192 ppb. Pastor Williams said his sources report the level detected in the Gulf at 1,200 ppb and the amount poses a serious and even fatal health risk

TPTB want us to notice that the EPA 'kindly' asked BP not to use corexit and then get angry at how the EPA has no power to enforce BP to not use the corexit.
Then the Cap and Trade comes in.
Obama wants the EPA to have policing powers, nothing other than this could have us all blindly screaming create an environmental police force.
This is how ruthless the elite are.
Climate Summit failed.
And this is the third attempt.
Bowing to political reality, Senator Harry Reid, the Nevada Democrat and majority leader, said the Senate would not take up legislation intended to reduce carbon emissions blamed as a cause of climate change, but would instead pursue a more limited measure focused on responding to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and tightening energy efficiency standards.
