"Fast becoming a national scandal"
The Corexit Experiment, Chemical Engineer Marco Kaltofen of Worcester Polytechnic Institute, August 31, 2010:
Unfortunately, there is no indication if this is the Corexit 9500 or 9527A. Perhaps more information to come.
From the Stuart Smith Blog:
What is so damning about our dispersant testing is that we – through court-obtained channels – used the actual oil from the Macondo Well and the actual dispersant, Corexit. The results are undeniable. Watch the video [below]…
The scientists who are going into the field, at some personal risk given the contamination, and finding these materials are really the leading edge of what I believe is fast becoming a national scandal. ...
And a note in anticipation of the eventual counter-attack: Granted, our legal team is paying for this research, but I find it offensive that anyone would use that to discount the findings. First, these are professionals with integrity maintained over distinguished careers. And also think about this: We intend to introduce these findings into a court of law as evidence, so any tiny mistake in procedure and the court tosses out some very expensive work. So these scientists are careful, diligent and unfortunately are finding that our fears are justified.
