The 1.8 million gallons of dispersant that BP and federal responders spread on the massive Gulf oil spill in 2010 are already coming back to haunt them.

Nalco was irresponsible when the created the product in th efirst place and so should not be exempt!

Chemical workers are getting sick using their own chemicals...tragedy, or a comedy?

Complications from that catastrophe just keep arising don't they? Horrible. Thanks Cal.

Putting more and more chemicals into the ocean can't be good for sea, sea creatures or people.

If it weren't for stories like these, we'd never know the outcome of these efforts. After the sound bites and staged clips have been aired, there's never any follow-up. Now I'm wondering if the deformities we're seeing in the marine life of the Gulf of Mexico is from the oil spill, the dispersant, or some nasty synergistic effect between the two. Thanks Cal.

No words, but, YA THINK??? Geepers, enough already and just imagine all of the creatures and what is still yet to come!

Yet, they got the approval to DRILL In ALASKA OF ALL PLACES...LEAVE IT ALONE FOR COTTEN PICKEN SAKE!
