"They're still spraying dispersant" on "big pockets of oil" thinks chemist who tested inland waters


Oil dispersant subject of Orange Beach tests; chemist says he found Corexit, Press-Register, October 12, 2010:

“I would venture to say that the big pockets of oil that they’re finding offshore, they’re still spraying it,” [Robert Naman, a Mobile analytical chemist] said.

He dismissed the idea that other products may have polluted the water with propylene glycol or 2-butoxyethanol. “You’d never be able to pick that up from a boat-washing operation that might be going on in Cotton Bayou,” he said. “The bayou is so big that you would dilute it out almost instantly.”

    I heard the planes late last night. The same ones that were used all summer. There is still a toxic looking "foggy air " quality around Pensacola. It used to rain, now it downpours so hard you cant see across the street at times.

  • Corexit spraying is illegal now!!!!

    Premurdered--thanks for the on-the-spot observations, but please don't commit suicide, so to speak!! ;)
