Marine science department head: “We’re adamantly opposed to using dispersants… it doesn’t remove the oil”

“We’re adamantly opposed to using dispersants,” Bob Shipp, head of the marine sciences department at the University of South Alabama said to the Palm Beach Post. “It doesn’t destroy the oil. It doesn’t remove the oil. It leaves it in the water column, where it can do a lot of damage.”

“When the oil is on the surface, part of it is volatile and dissipates into the atmosphere. You can burn part of it. You can skim part of it. If it’s in the water column, you can’t do any of those things.”
