Dr. Chris Pincetich, Marine Biologist and Toxicologist, Project Gulf Impact, July 4, 2010:
Coast Guard planes are flying overhead at night spraying Corexit.
You're ask me if it's getting on land, I'm telling you it's getting sprayed on land.
I know from my work with pesticide applications that even if you have a very good pilot the drift can be of concern.
But the secondary effects are the kind of volatilization, evaporation and THEN movement.
So, it's applied, it sits on the surface, it comes on up a little bit, and then it moves around...
Do i think there's dispersant mixing with our everyday lives? Absolutely.

And read the findings from Homosassa, FL: Tests find sickened family has 50.3 ppm of Corexit’s 2-butoxyethanol in swimming pool — JUST ONE HOUR NORTH OF TAMPA (lab report included)
