  • So, I am sitting in a medium sized residential room. If this room were filled with water and I could dump and entire barrel of Corexit into it, and evenly disperse it... that would be "only" about 500 ppm and the EPA would say there was no Corexit!?#@&^!

    Thats patently absurd.

  • Mr. Anonymous

    ...and if they chose to make the comparison by weight rather that volume they can fudge the figures even further.

    (i.e. One cubic metre of Corexit powder wont weigh 1000 kilos)

    Where is EPA's scientific "study(s)" showing 750 ppm (parts per million) is the safe threshold for COREXIT contamination? Lets see the evidence, backed by scientific documentation, and validated by reputable scientists who do not have a "conflict of interest." This means NO funding for the creation of the "studies" from contractors (such as BP) with an interest in slanting a report for personal or corporate or government special interest or PROFIT. This also means no "POLITICAL AGENDAS."

    Jec, you have again asked for something impossible. Corexit is toxic at very low levels. PERIOD. Your/our government and media are nothing but LIARS

  • jec

    ftufyu,WHOA. I am in no way agreeing with the use of pollutants or toxic chemicals! Re-read my comment, asking how the EPA studies were done, and questioning if there is a conflict of interest due funding and motivation.

  • I guess our news media whores want us to believe everything that they say. They are the true gospel and we are their pet serfs and idiots who believe them no matter what the evidence says. And they work for the International Bankers/Bilderbergers/Illuminati cohorts that are ruling the whole world and bringing us into economic collaspe. And now they have poisened our Gulf water and want us to believe that it isn't that bad.

    But the Great God of Heaven will have them all spitting out fire and brimstone in the very near future; as they will be greatly defeated when Jesus returns and have them all in the lake of fire and brimstone very soon!!

    Why? For killing billions of His children over the centuries and for killing and martyring millions who wouldn't take their mark of the beast chip in their foreheads or hands!!

    I have read that COREXIT IS TOXIC AT 2.61 ppm., while OIL IS TOXIC AT 11 ppm. Corexit 9500 is about four times as toxic as oil itself, and the mixture of oil and corexit is more toxic thean either separately.

    Would you please explain how you arrived at your dispersant screening level of 750 ppm? What exactly does this mean?


  • Look around, GM foods, vaccines, chemtrails, radioactive waste, fluoridation and now the Gulf chemical warfare being waged against America. These are intentional attacks by an enemy within and one which has placed its generals and agents at all levels of the control hierarchy.

    90% of the planet's surface population is targeted for termination. If you don't know this, you are grossly misinformed. Now that you do, what are you going to do about it? Will you fight to defend yours and your family's right to live, or will you continue to argue amongst yourselves until every last man is dead?

    Root hog, or die.

    We can for certain expect that Corexit and or other dispersant's are and will be in place 24 hours a day spraying and controlling the oil that is permeating from the many sources in the Gulf. It may be why all the hundreds of dead Dolphins have been found washed up on beaches for years, many times whole pods, they were never tested for Corexit ! Or in the Whales !
    1. They did not know what to look for...
    2. There were no test for the ingredients available.
    When you hide your poisons ingredients from the world, you may never be exposed !
    A constant flow of dispersant's being flooded into the Gulf for years without our knowledge and it will continue with our knowledge now knowing a bit more of the story. All BP has to show is reasonable doubt in a court of law as to it being theirs !
    As the oil rises to the surface they ( BP, Gov. States ? All ?) are knocking it down again with Corexit like a Wack-a-mole game ! This will go on for years I fear ! ...

    Actual data

    A study conducted by Russia’s Ministry of Natural Resources concluded that oil in the environment is toxic at 11 PPM (parts per million). Corexit 9500 is toxic at only 2.61 PPM. So in reality, Corexit is approximately four times more toxic than oil. But Corexit 9500 has another precarious characteristic; it’s reaction to warm water. As the water in the Gulf of Mexico heats up, Corexit 9500 goes through a phase transition that changes it from a liquid to a gas, which is readily absorbed by clouds and released as toxic rain.
