BP Oil Spill and Corexit 9500

Some people will continue to cover the situation in the gulf but we must also understand the grave danger in ignoring the other happenings throughout the world.

The solution is to challenge the companies that manufacture these products to eliminate the most toxic chemicals, and replace them with safer alternatives.

Bioremediation's highly effective products, which are safe, biodegradable, user-friendly and environmentally friendly, offer alternatives to toxic solvents and chemical or abrasive absorbents. To Learn More Ask for Tom Clark  Click Here

Nalco makes this claim (or some version of it) at a number of places on their website:

Corexit is safe and effective.

Corexit 9500, about four times more toxic than crude oil, is one of the most poisonous dispersant ever developed, and is up to 20 times more toxic than other dispersant, while being only half as effective.

With this knowledge, why would BP continue to use this product?

Interestingly, the 2010 board nominees for Nalco include former BP, and current Tesco board member, Rodney F. Chase, Monsanto's Carl M. Casale, and Lockheed Martin and J.P. Morgan's Mary M. VanDeWeghe.

Monsanto: Makers of DDT, Agent Orange, Bovine Growth Hormone, and PCBs. Said, “Their Products Where Safe.”

Why are they in Business? The Corporations are allowed to poison our environment.

During the Vietnam War, US military forces sprayed millions of gallons of herbicides (plant-killing chemials) on lands in Vietnam and Laos to remove forest cover, destroy crops, and clear vegetation from the perimeters of US bases. This effort, known as Operation Ranch Hand, lasted from 1962 to 1971.

Agent Orange has been linked to many health problems in Vietnam veterans and Vietnamese civilians. Thousands have died from conditions likely brought on by exposure to Agent Orange. The herbicide, and its component dioxin, is considered to be one of the most dangerous substances in the world. Overall, the mass spraying of Agent Orange has been called an "ecocide" because of the devastation that it wrought on the Vietnamese environment and on the health of many residents of that country
