Remember this ?

along comes Keven Costner with a machine that actually extracts the oil out of water by a centrifugal method, without using chemicals.
Costner had tried for weeks, precious time wasted to get his machine approved through the US Congress who took their sweet time looking it over. Did it work? Yes it did.
If Costner would have had those machines on board the ships that were carrying oil out for BP profits, they could have saved the Gulf from the billions of gallons of oil spilled into the water.

The scandalous silence of the EPA, Obama, the MSM and Congress

People are getting sick in the Gulf states and the sick are getting worse. Meanwhile, the MSM, EPA, President Obama and the rest of the merry band of government goofs that inhabit DC ignore the continued spraying of Corexit. Maybe if BP sprayed DC for a few weeks, it would get someone’s attention?

but stopped checking when it stopped collecting intel . Their results today look like those of Search....though Search of the past when relevant results were available at iGoogle. They don't seem to have changed, though. Not in evidence are stories relating to weather changes ( storms ) over the Gulf, downstream results from the polluted water entering the ocean and flowing up the East coast with mysterious deaths of sea life and even a redirection of warm water flow to the Arctic.

The Dirty Truth About Bp Gulf Oil Spill Dispersant: Nalco Corexit

I want to make it known to the reader that google has been scrubbed of Corexit info. When I wrote the above article, much more information was available. The New York Times even deleted part of an article that they published, with Corexit information. This stuff is deadly and they want to hide that fact from everyone.

DogPile  Aha. More services are available, of course, but let's see what is interesting.

BP dispersants 'causing sickness' (gruesome symptoms)

At roughly the same time Matsler was exposed, local television station WKRG News 5 took a water sample from his area to test for dispersants. The sample literally exploded when it was mixed with an organic solvent separating the oil from the water.

Hugh Kaufman, an EPA whistleblower and analyst, has reported this of the effects of the toxic dispersants:

"We have dolphins that are hemorrhaging. People who work near it are hemorrhaging internally. And that’s what dispersants are supposed to do..."

By the middle of last summer, the Alabama Department of Public Health said that 56 people in Mobile and Baldwin counties had sought treatment for what they believed were oil disaster-related illnesses.

Corexit Use Still Appears to Be Prevalent in the Gulf, Despite Official Statements

Since the blown-out well at the Mississippi Canyon 252 Macondo site has been capped and the cleanup operations in the Gulf declared a success, BP has summarily fired thousands of workers without notice who were left unemployed as a result of the disaster. Local, state and federal agencies have been working to present a picture of normalcy, declaring the seafood safe to eat, the beaches clean and the water free from oil. The actual situation along the Gulf Coast is far from normal, with many people evacuating due to sickness and financial distress. Independent scientific reports continue to conclude the safety of the seafood is questionable at best, the beaches remain thoroughly contaminated, and the majority of the oil and dispersant is still in the water column or at the bottom of the Gulf.

Voices From the Gulf: “We Are Being Poisoned” (Pt. 3)

The EPA told BP to not use Corexit because it knew the deadly consequences. BP gave the EPA the big middle finger and showed the federal government who was really in charge.

Kim Anderson’s Oregon State University (OSU) team of researchers, from the OSU College of Agricultural Sciences, began a test-retest comparative analysis for the carcinogenic contaminant polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), and its biodegradable partner, OPAHs, which appears after the application of Corexit and subsequent exposure to ultraviolet rays. Stunningly, the OSU researchers found a 40 fold increase in these carcinogenic compounds in the comparative test-retest period.The omnipresent dangers to Gulf Coast residents is self-evident in light of this research. It is noteworthy that the OSU researchers had the first draft of their report stolen before the results could be published.

Award winning chemist, Dr. Wilma Subra, conducted blood tests on Gulf Coast residents who were symptomatic with new illnesses and found that some of the cancer-causing agents were 65 times the expected level in the victims blood tests. Subra noted that Corexit is in the air, the water and the Gulf resident’s blood.

“There’s a whole population that’s very sick and doesn’t have access to medical care, and that’s what we’ve been trying to work on now, from the very beginning, is getting them medical care so they will get better,” says Subra. “How many people do you think we’re talking about, do we have any guess?” “Hundreds of thousands along the whole coastal area,” Subra says. “Hundreds of thousands of people?” “That are sick, yes.”

You have a recipe for something much worse than acid rain.

Speaking of acid raid, this is exactly what has been discovered in North Carolina and in the
Memphis area where crops were being destroyed from acid rain laced with Corexit.

Why doesn’t anyone ask why BP insisted on Corexit as the dispersant of choice? Well, Amy Goodman of Democracy Now! did ask the question of former EPA official, Hugh Kaufman.

The most damning account of the Corexit dangers posed to the Gulf comes from
Hugh Kaufman, senior policy analyst at the EPA’s Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response as he stated on Democracy Now! that
“In light of the EPA’s data, BP’s decision to use Corexit 9500 and 9527 was based solely upon an attempt to profit on the clean-up and not carry out BP’s expressed desire to clean up the Gulf Coast environment”…these dispersants were used in massive quantities, to hide the magnitude of the spill and save BP moneyBoth EPA, NOAA, etc, have been sock puppets for BP in this cover-up. Now, by hiding the amount of spill, BP is saving hundreds of millions, if not billions, of dollars in fines…People who work near it (the dispersants) are hemorrhaging internally. EPA now is taking the position that they really don’t know how dangerous it is, even though if you read the label, it tells you how dangerous it is. And, for example, in the Exxon Valdez case, people who worked with dispersants, most of them are dead…The average death age is around fifty. It’s very dangerous…

The Gulf is still leaking oil and Corexit is still being covertly sprayed, most at night and by unmanned planes and there is growing evidence that the damage may be permanent due to a hole created in the ocean floor by the initial explosion.

Disturbingly, the Corexit laced toxic rain may be a fixture in the transpiration cycle. This means that Corexit could be falling from skies in a variety of locations far away from the Gulf.

When one pours more than two million gallons of toxic chemical dispersants on top of an oil spill, it doesn’t just disappear. In this case, it moves to the atmosphere, where it will travel hundreds, if not thousands of miles from the site of the BP oil spill, in the form of toxic rain. And when the rain falls to earth on grass consumed by cows, the damage to the food chain moves beyond the fish in the ocean as dairy and beef are now contaminated. As with Fukushima, we are all affected.

The European Union Times reports in a “disturbing report prepared for President Medvedev by Russia’s Ministry of Natural Resources is warning today that the BP oil and gas leak in the Gulf of Mexico is about to become the worst environmental catastrophe in all of human history threatening the entire eastern half of the North American continent with 'total destruction'”.

Chemical Dispersants Being Used in Gulf Clean-up are Potentially Toxic

Tom Philpott
Grist  6 May 2010
these dispersants both contain versions of a disturbing statement. 9500's states that "Component substances have a potential to bioconcentrate," while the one for 9527A has the slightly more comforting, "Component substances have a low potential to bioconcentrate."

This is not what you want to hear about toxins being dumped in the sea by the hundreds of thousands of gallons. The EPA defines bioconcentration as the "accumulation of a chemical in tissues of a fish or other organism to levels greater than in the surrounding medium." In other words, substances that bioconcentrate tend to move from water into fish, where they can do damage to the fish itself, as well as be passed on to predator fish - and on up the food chain, to human eaters.

Comment: For more information about how toxic chemicals bioconcentrate in animals and humans after years of exposure read the following article: Food in the U.S. is Still Tainted with Chemicals That Were Banned Decades Ago.
Both data sheets include the warning "human health hazards: acute." The MSDS for Corexit 9527A states that "excessive exposure may cause central nervous system effects, nausea, vomiting, anesthetic or narcotic effects," and "repeated or excessive exposure to butoxyethanol [an active ingredient] may cause injury to red blood cells (hemolysis), kidney or the liver."

It adds: "Prolonged and/or repeated exposure through inhalation or extensive skin contact with EGBE [butoxyethanol] may result in damage to the blood and kidneys."
Petroleum distillates and 2-Butoxyethanol are both solvents; neither are substances you'd excitedly dump into a vibrant ecosytem. According to its International Chemical Scorecard, 2-Butoxyethanol "may be absorbed" by the skin; causes "cough, dizziness, drowsiness, headache, nausea, and weakness" when inhaled; and "abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting" when ingested. For petroleum distillates, the International Chemical Scorecard has similar indications about exposure for humans, and adds this unsettling line: "The substance is harmful to aquatic organisms."
we are likely further damaging to a fragile ecosystem in the name of saving it, and imperiling the health of seafood eaters for years to come.

Gulf Sickness – Corexit Still Being Sprayed – People Will Die
In Mississippi, at the Biloxi Regional Medical Center, victims of the Corexit Spraying and other chemicals in the Gulf are being tested by doctors.  Is it the flu?  Is it acid reflux?  Workers, from the Gulf, are coughing up blood, getting dizzy and passing out.  Officials are slow to deliver any conclusions.

Corexit and BP crude oil found in blood tests

Did I mention the brew in the Gulf, coming from so deep, is radioactive ? And Fukushima is spewing cesium - and plutonium too, I expect. 



Radiation damages the cells via both direct and indirect damage to the DNA itself. This occurs via the production of large quantities of free radicals which can damage many areas of the cell, especially the DNA. When these radioactive particles pass through the cellular fluids, they produce superoxide and hydroxyl radicals: the latter being most destructive.
Radioactive particles in cells overwhelm the protective actions of various DNA repair enzymes due to the sheer volume of free radical production. Another reason that adding digestive enzymes to the diet can once again prove to be life saving is because the more enzymes you have, the greater cellular reparations will be. (
It turns out that most of the antioxidant vitamins and minerals that are so effective at keeping you healthy also have powerful anti-radiation effects by virtue of their free radical scavenging and lipid peroxidation inhibiting properties.

The Aftermath- BP’s Chemical Dispersants Causing Sickness

Chemist Bob Naman, from the Analytical Chemical Testing Lab in Mobile, Alabama, has been studying the effects.
“The dispersants are being added to the water and are causing chemical compounds to become water soluble, which is then given off into the air, so it is coming down as rain, in addition to being in the water and beaches of these areas of the Gulf,” Naman said.
“I’m scared of what I’m finding. These cyclic compounds intermingle with the Corexit [dispersants] and generate other cyclic compounds that aren’t good. Many have double bonds, and many are on the EPA’s danger list. This is an unprecedented environmental catastrophe.”
Bp Oil Chemical Sickness Dispersants
Plane dropping chemical dispersants into the Gulf
The poly-aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) from the toxic mix is what are making people sick. PAHs contain compounds that have been identified as carcinogenic, mutagenic, and teratogenic.
Naman is not alone. Dr. Riki Ott, a toxicologist and Exxon Valdez survivor explains:
“The dispersants used in BP’s draconian experiment contain solvents such as petroleum distillates and 2-butoxyethanol,”
“2-butoxyethanol is a human health hazard substance; it is a fetal toxin and it breaks down blood cells, causing blood and kidney disorders.”
“Given this evidence, it should be no surprise that solvents are also notoriously toxic to people, something the medical community has long known,”
