Be there Tuesday 6 pm at USF: "No politics, no cover-up, no speculation, just facts" about oil disaster -- But no talk of health effects?

Gulf Oil Disaster Science Forum: What Do We Know Now? What's Still To Be Learned?, Sierra Club:

No politics, no cover-up, no speculation, just facts.

Plan to join the USF College of Marine Sciences, Sierra Club, Gulf Restoration Network and other environmental organizations for an evening forum with some of America's top marine scientists who've been out in the Gulf investigating the impact of this year's Gulf Oil disaster.What impacts have been identified, what long-term effects are yet to be studied? Learn what we know (and don't know) at this point, 7 months after the Deepwater Horizon rupture began.

Tuesday, November 16th- 6:00 pm Karen A. Steidinger Auditorium

Fish and Wildlife Research Institute, 100 Eighth Ave. SE St. Petersburg, Florida (on Tampa Bay in downtown St. Pete, adjacent to USF St. Pete).

    Talk about health effects is vital. We hear that many people are sick because of the oil gush. Statistics from independent doctors and scientists are most impoortant. There have been news reports that BP bribed some universities and doctors. So, we should not believe the same sources again!

  • This is exactly what happened...and is happening. Have you heard about the "disappeared" Swan Doctor?

    The chemists, professors, researchers are either bought by BP or disappearing or reporting false and skewed information.

    Few have any integrity...

  • Say No

    I will try again, please post this comment. thank you!

    Let us stick to the FACTS:

    FACT: US Government allowed BP to spray [nearly two-million gallons] of Corexit in the Gulf of Mexico.

    FACT: Corexit9527A is mainly ‘2-Butoxyethanol’ (30-60%)

    FACT: 2-Butoxyethanol MSDS,section 11- ‘Chronic Effects on Humans’ may damage blood, kidneys, liver and CNS… adverse fertility, birth defects cancer; section 14 DOT Class 6.1- POISONOUS MATERIALS.


    FACT: There was no toxicity study done on either Corexit; see MSDS under TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION- “No toxicity studies have been done on this product.”

    FACT: US Government declared seafood is safe before the well was officially declared dead.

    FACT: Lab analysis detects 193ppm in shrimp caught in October, 2010.

    FACT: Lab analysis of sand sample taken 9/14/10 shows 173ppm of BP’s oil in sand on Sarasota Beach.

    FACT: In May, the EPA ordered BP to cut back on Corexit by 50 to 75%; they did not. 800,000 gallons of Corexit EC9527A (the worst of the two) had already been used at that point.

    FACT: US Government said the remaining 75% of oil is gone.

    FACT: US Government via MMS and BP were participants in a 2001 study called “Project Deep Spill” (see p155 for complete party list).

    MOST IMPORTANT FACT: “Project Deep Spill” page 89:
    “This is important information, because the water-soluble compounds are generally the most toxic ones when exposed to marine biota. The results from these measurements show that the rising of the oil through the water column represents a kind of ‘stripping’ process of some of the most toxic compounds in the oil. The end result is therefore that a portion of the most toxic compounds is left in the water column.”

    FACT: BP and US Gov have known about underwater plumes since 2001. Worse yet, they have known the end result, “that a portion of the most toxic compounds is left in the water column”.

    There are some FACTS for you! The ALL directly relate to HEALTH!!! FACT or FICTION: Gulf seafood is safe?!?
