Report: Oil blowing inland after heavy ‘cleanup’ equipment and sifters grind it into fine bits — “A most alarming development” (PHOTOS)


Ft. Morgan 2-3 mile marker oil update, SkyTruth Gulf Oil Spill Tracker, February 9, 2011:

Our area of Ft. Morgan continues to have oil on the beach. Repeated passes by mechanical sifters and other heavy equipment driving back and forth over one swatch of beach has ground the tar balls and patties into smaller and smaller pieces, burying them temporarily only to have them surface again after a few days of wind...

A most alarming development is that some of the oil has been ground into such fine bits that it is now being blown up onto dunes and beyond into areas previously unaffected by the oil...

    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.

    I read similar percentages for toxic levels shortly after the oil spill. It is amazing that BP and the powers that be are still trying to deceive us and that the peope are mostly not actively resisting such deceit. Evil may triumph if good people say or do nothing.
