Default EPA analyst: blowout cleanup workers will die from Corexit

Senior EPA Analyst: “Government [Agencies] Have Been Sock Puppets for BP In This Cover Up”

It's clear the only reason BP used the toxic dispersant was to hide (i.e. cover up) the amount of oil that was leaking. As we've seen -- the dispersant has also made it impossible to recover much of the oil -- because the dispersant forces it into the water column.

But now a senior EPA analyst is warning that most of the cleanup workers exposed to Corexit will die -- of respiratory disease. BTW, this is the same EPA official who blew the whistle about the toxic air at the WTC after 9/11.

Check out this shocking report. Then call your Senator and Congressman and tell them how you feel

Everyone knew the air was contaminated at the WTC site. A guy I know hired people to film the workers walking through the debris with their respirators hanging from their necks.

I'm going to let you guys in on a little secret: everyone is going to die.. usually in an unexpected and unpleasant manner. Strap it on and get used to it.

The Persian Gulf Spill, which is of a comparable size, was 17 years ago and we still don't knwo how bad(or if it is that bad). Check it out:

Quote:
The New York Times reported that a 1993 study sponsored by UNESCO, Bahrain, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and the United States found the spill did "little long-term damage": About half the oil evaporated, a million barrels were recovered and 2 million to 3 million barrels washed ashore, mainly in Saudi Arabia.[7]

More recent scientific studies have tended to disagree with this 1993 assessment. Marshlands and mud tidal flats continued to contain large quantities of oil, over ten years later, and full recovery is likely to take decades.

Dr. Jacqueline Michel, US geochemist (2010 interview – transcript of radio broadcast):[8]

The long term effects were very significant. There was no shoreline cleanup, essentially, over the 800 kilometers that the oil – - in Saudi Arabia. And so when we went back in to do quantitative survey in 2002 and 2003, there was a million cubic meters of oil sediment remained then 12 years after the spill.... [T]he oil penetrated much more deeply into the intertidal sediment than normal because those sediments there have a lot of crab burrows, and the oil penetrated deep, sometimes 30, 40 centimeters, you know a couple of feet, into the mud of these tidal flats. There’s no way to get it out now. So it has had long term impact.

Dr. Hans-Jörg Barth, German geographer (2001 research report):[9]

The study demonstrated that, in contrary to previously published reports e.g. already 1993 by UNEP, several coastal areas even in 2001 still show significant oil impact and in some places no recovery at all. The salt marshes which occur at almost 50% of the coastline show the heaviest impact compared to the other ecosystem types after 10 years. Completely recovered are the rocky shores and mangroves. Sand beaches are on the best way to complete recovery. The main reason for the delayed recovery of the salt marshes is the absence of physical energy (wave action) and the mostly anaerobic milieu of the oiled substrates. The latter is mostly caused by cyanobacteria which forms impermeable mats. In other cases tar crusts are responsible. The availability of oxygen is the most important criteria for oil degradation. Where oil degrades it was obvious that benthic intertidal fauna such as crabs re-colonise the destroyed habitats long before the halophytes. The most important paths of regeneration are the tidal channels and the adjacent areas. Full recovery of the salt marshes will certainly need some more decades.

The Financial Times, in reference to the April 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, cited the 1993 optimistic assessment of the Gulf War oil spill as evidence that "Initial warnings of catastrophic environmental damage from oil spills can turn out to be overdone".[10]

It seems unlikely that the MSDSs....mandated by law......were never made available. Or that the warning labels were removed before delivery. That would require everyone to be on BPs payroll and deliberately ignoring every warning from the manufacturer.....who would also be liable if the labels were removed and MSDSs not supplied.

Looks like a job for 'Conspiracy man'. Got a book in the works Gaff?

That's right! People forget ya gotta wash it inside too.

Such a simple thing yet so powerful as a health tool.

Amazing doctors with all their education do not know this, something most all pre 1950 mothers did know.
