From Crooks and Liars, linked above.
Marine toxicologist Riki Ott said the chemicals used by BP can wreak havoc on a person's body and even lead to death.."
"The volatile, organic carbons, they act like a narcotic on the brain," Ott said. "At high concentrations, what we learned in Exxon Valdez from carcasses of harbor seals and sea otters, it actually fried the brain, (and there were) brain lesions
The whole fucking coast is now being treated to a nasty cocktail of chemicals and the people down there are trapped like a rape victim with an ether soaked cloth wrapped around their mouth and nose With no chance of escape.
Now imagine what is happening to every, single, organism in the wild life down there.
In the mean time, we are still hearing lies and obfuscations and absolutely no one seems to know exactly what the fuck is actually going on with regards to how bad this spill is, how much is coming out of the hole in the sea bed and exactly what the fuck they are going to do to stop it, let alone clean the shit up.
I said a week ago that this mess is going to wind up in the Mediterrainan, I stand by that, there is so much oil in the water now, it will probably wind up going around the entire planet eventually.
If there are not criminal charges filed againstthe assholes responsible for this environmental disaster, I suggest you start stocking up on self defense items and lots of food because this is going to be a disaster of global proportions and a whole lot of people are going to wind up getting the fuck away from this mess in a big hurry. Maybe MILLIONS.
