One Response to “Scientists: BP Oil Spill Contaminated Vital Gulf Marine Food Web”
The 120,000,000 gal of heavy portion of the crude bunker C that escaped from the
deepwater horizon well would have cooled off and become almost solid at the depths
it is in. At 8000 feet of depth the pressure is 250-300 atmospheres and the temperature is 33 degrees Fahrenheit. This makes for a massive glob too viscous
to really be considered anything but a solid. BP has no intentions of looking at this
because , as a chemist, I see no way of getting it to the surface. Biologically,
the 33oF stuff can not be micro-organism friendly and therefore will only be SLOWLY
eaten. So , we have a problem that will not go away just as BP plans on leaving
within the next few months. When someone asks how the Gulf is doing, PLEASE
answer with the question “Where’s the 120M gallons unaccounted FOR ???”"
