Corexit Experiment

“Corexit is an industrial solvent. It's a degreaser. It's chewing up boat engines off-shore. It's chewing up dive gear on-shore. Of course it's chewing up people's skin. The doctors are saying the solvents are making the oil worse."

Chris Pincetich, a marine biologist and campaigner with the Sea Turtle Restoration Project, said Coast Guard planes are flying overhead at night spraying Corexit on the water and on land. "People need to realize that their water, their air, the sand they're walking on, the things they're touching when they wake up in the morning, are coated with this stuff," he said. "We are producing an experiment in the Gulf, the likes that no one has ever seen and top scientists admit that, so we're all part of the experiment."

  1. This is horrible that these poisons are being used. Petroleum is bad enough, but we don't need to make it worse.
    And is petroleum really that bad? Certainly it;s not good, but people use petroleum jelly as skin moisturizer, etc all the time. Commonly referred to by the brand name "Vaseline" petroleum jelly is a by product of oil drilling. It bubbles up to the surface through oil wells and is collected, processed, and packaged. Many smear their lips with it. Yum, yum...
