Dispersants Could've Disrupted Gulf Ecosystem, Study Says
by Mary-Devon Dupuy
Back during the Big Oozy, BP touted their use of dispersants to make the oil go away, but skeptics questioned wihether the chemicals would have lasting impacts on the Gulf's ecosystem, and the health of the people who live on the Coast. On the ecosystem front, a new study from the Dauphin Island Sea Lab indicates the skeptics were on the right track. The study, released yeterday, concluded that dispersants disturb marine food chains and ultimately do more harm than good for the Gulf.
Turns out the Yes Men were onto something. On the first anniversary of the Big Oozy, news outlets were sent into a frenzy when a team of enviro-hucksters sprung a fake press event announcing a ban on that Palmolive of the sea, dispersant. A little more than a month later, Sen. A.G. Crowe seems to have taken a liking to the evironmentalistas' idea. The local Republican introduced a bill to ban the oil-separating chemicals from use in Louisiana, and even saw it passed in committee with no objections yesterday. Crowe will only find solace in a study released yesterday by the University of West Floridal that concludes dispersant doesn't really get rid of the oil.
