where did all the gulf spill oil go?

“But it was a great media event, no? And a chance to show how concerned and moral you are, right? And an opportunity for Congress to host a reality show starring themselves and Tony Hayward, yes?

There is no strong convincing evidence of that as yet - fossil fuels are a dirty business.

“...the oil slicks that once spread across thousands of miles of the Gulf of Mexico have largely disappeared. Nor has much oil washed up on the sandy beaches and marshes along the Louisiana coast. And the small cleanup army in the Gulf has only managed to skim up a tiny fraction of the millions of gallons of oil spilled in the 100 days since the Deepwater Horizon rig went up in flames.

“So where did the oil go? "Some of the oil evaporates," explains Edward Bouwer, professor of environmental engineering at Johns Hopkins University. That's especially true for the more toxic components of oil, which tend to be very volatile, he says. Jeffrey W. Short, a scientist with the environmental group Oceana, told the New York Times that as much as 40 percent of the oil might have evaporated when it reached the surface. High winds from two recent storms may have speeded the evaporation process.” [Quoted from news.yahoo.com]

Oh no, not a sane article!

Obviously you’re one of those racists who hate Obama and Rahm Emmanual. How can they destroy BP and increase American dominance of the filthy fossil fuel industry with anarchists like you?

How can they improve your lives if idiots like you start posting facts!

You should be ashamed.
