Remember..... Corexit was first used in Alaska.
That's how we know it should never be used again.
Corexit 9580 was used during the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill disaster in Alaska.
n 2010, Corexit EC9500A and Corexit EC9527A were used in large quantities in the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
Corexit 9527, considered by the EPA to be an acute health hazard, is stated by its manufacturer to be potentially harmful to red blood cells, the kidneys and the liver, and may irritate eyes and skin. The chemical 2-butoxyethanol, found in Corexit 9527, was identified as having caused lasting health problems in workers involved in the cleanup of the Exxon Valdez oil spill. According to the Alaska Community Action on Toxics, the use of Corexit during the Exxon Valdez oil spill caused people"respiratory, nervous system, liver, kidney and blood disorders". Like 9527, 9500 can cause hemolysis (rupture of blood cells) and may also cause internal bleeding.

Wasn't the cause of death attributed to the mass bird die offs on new years the same? Internal hemorrhaging?
Hopefully they find the problem and fix it.
