debunked numerous times, sweetie.
Has the loop re-formed yet?
Can you give me a link showing this?
At the end of the day, if you want to champion morons who show no clear thought or impartiality and idiots who carry on like pretentious liars, go right ahead!
So, the point of this thread is to see if any locals to the Gulf can help glean more information on this and perhaps expose a pseudo-chemist getting about cashing in on peoples fears.
How will we ever know who is telling the truth? Even here on this forum, we are all just words on a screen. My gut feeling was the guy who spoke up for the chemist, they way he phrased his words... not I know this guy, but I know this FAMILY, very much had a ring of truth for me. But we will never REALLY know, will we? .....
No, this lab is not one of the labs being used in our project nor does it have the equipment to perform the test needed.
I have seen too many posts questioning the veracity of the people living through this as the Gov and BP are repeatedly caught lying. I guess it is easier to doubt the PEOPLE dealing with this than to doubt the government and BP.
And going by what cloudsinthesky says, he hasn't the means to properly identify corexit anyway, so why is he saying he has identified it?
I think you need to re-read what I said. I wasn't having a go at your labs, or you. I was asking the question as to why Noman would bother to test for corexit if he doesn't have the means to properly identify the markers.
Got the second one. You'll be waiting a while though, coz I'm not calling you. After the way you've acted in here, you're not worth the time I'm sorry to say.
In one of the largest penalties ever levied in Alabama against an environmental consulting firm, the state Department of Environmental Management ordered a Mobile laboratory to pay $45,500 to settle a claim the lab mishandled contaminated groundwater.
This is the second time in two years that the firm, Analytical Chemical Testing Laboratory Inc., has been fined after being accused of hazardous waste violations. In January 1998, ADEM fined the company $35,000 after regulators determined workers had mishandled contaminated soil from a former Prim Dry Cleaning and Laundry site.
This time, ADEM contends that ACT improperly disposed of hazardous waste from monitoring wells at the Saraland Shopping Center, according to a consent order issued by the agency and signed by the laboratory's president. Agency officials said they found discrepancies while reviewing documents pertaining to work performed by ACT at the shopping center in late 1997 and 1998.
Regulators contend that 100 to 200 gallons of groundwater, which was contaminated with the toxic solvent perchloroethylene, was discharged back into monitoring wells by ACT Labs personnel when it should have been disposed of off site as hazardous waste.
The company insists it did nothing wrong and is being unfairly punished by state regulators who misinterpreted documents and conversations with lab personnel, according to the firm's president, Robert Naman.
