In the GULFSTREAM? North Carolina geochemist was to test rain from Hurricane Earl for BP’s OIL — May already be “in our waters”


East Carolina University geochemist Sid Mitra is studying how far hydrocarbons from the spill are traveling and "was planning to capture rain from the storm in eastern North Carolina to look for the presence of hydrocarbons picked up from the waters," according to an article in today's Daily Reflector. ...

"We are not seeing a slick and not seeing tar balls in North Carolina... That doesn't necessarily mean that there are no hydrocarbons from the spill in our waters. There was a lot of oil released underwater — the subsurface plume — and nobody knows where that is going," Sid Mitra told the paper.

    I am very interested to watch the progression of the hydrocarbons- especially along the East Coast.

    ME TOO, I HOPE WE'LL SEE RESULTS FROM THIS TEST SOON. GREAT SOMEONE THOUGHT OF THIS. EXCELLENT IDEA!

    Good article. I outlined how the layperson can go about doing this themselves at my blog back in July. If you do this, look at the Diesel Range Organics [DRO] when you obtain the results. The same principles can be followed if you wanted to isolate the problem constituents in the COREXIT and sample for them separately.

    The mainstream media blackout on this issue of MASSIVE national concern is very unnerving. This is far more scary than 9/11. Millions could die. These vicious chemicals can bio-accumulate. Thanks to all the average joes out there who are getting tested and noticing some seriously weird crap coming out of the Gulf this summer!! Whoever is responsible knows they have to keep it undercover and fight the masses by slow poison. They couldn't overtake the masses otherwise. We greatly outnumber them. Hence, the secrecy. Who knows what BP or Unified Command is doing now?
