Top official reveals that dispersed oil will be in Gulf “longer than anyone here will be alive” according to LSU scientists


Barham says generations could feel effects of Gulf oil spill, News Star, January 19, 2011:

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Secretary Robert Barham said the state’s fisheries and coast could feel the impact of the BP gulf oil spill for generations. ...

“We opposed the sub-sea dispersants from the first day, but BP poured more than a million gallons into that column of oil,” he said. “My feeling is BP wanted that oil out of sight and mind. They didn’t want people to see that oil on the surface heading for the marshes and beaches.

“The dispersant worked in fragmenting the oil, but LSU scientists tell us there will be traceable quantities of oil longer than anyone here will be alive.”

    All the corexit in hell is not going to take care on the problem.
    It is up for debate whether or not the well is fixed properly.Many of us believe they screwed up the sea floor and we have an on-going situation of methane/oil gushing from the sea floor.
    And ,yes, IMHO, there will be oil to deal with for generations.
    What are "traceable quantities"?
