Oh you silly, silly people, what's a couple of thousand birds dying really matter. Or hell even all marine creatures being destroyed by PIB? Let these bothersome creatures die, nothing will stand in the way of our PROFIT NOR OUR BEING GROSSLY OVER PAID AND OUR OBSCENE BONUSES! Needless, to say I signed, sorry it was not with their blood however!

On a personal note, if you're truly a "Doctor of Oceanography", you should know better than to dump Polyisobutene, or any other dangerous chemical, into the Arctic or ANY body of water that is home to many of the world's wildlife..including, but not limited to certain members of the bird species!! You should definitely be ashamed of already causing the deaths of many! PLEASE DISCONTINUE THE DUMPING OF ANY DANGEROUS CHEMICAL, INCLUDING POLYISOBUTENE, as well as ALL OTHER CHEMICALS INTO THE ARCTIC IMMEDIATELY!

Actually, the first part of my comment, for whatever reason, did not appear....so I felt I should write explaining that what I wrote PRIOR to this comment was what I added ON the petition itself before signing it!! After I signed it, I DID share it on a social network as well....I feel this petition is VERY important and hopefully will convince this so-call "doctor" of oceanography to discontinue this heinous act immediately upon receiving it!!

Some sixty years ago as a mariner on tankers it was a regular job, after discharging gasoline, to clean the 27 tanks. Over a hundred buckets of petrochemical sludge and scale from each tank was tipped over the side. Remember more than half the ships tonnage around the world are Tankers. I have no idea how they are cleaned today, my guess is just the same. Add to this that every tanker is degassed by introducing air into the tanks and blowing it into the atmosphere. Do you get the picture? it is one of the worst polluting industries in the world.and that is before it is even burnt in yourcar's engine.
