Just when you thought the damages BP could cause was limited to beaches, marshes, oceans, people's livelihoods, birds and marine life, there's more.It gets worse. Should Alex gain hurricane strength and plow into the Corexit 9500-drenched water, it could suck up tons of the toxic dispersant and send it onto land and on to plant life.
BP's favorite dispersant Corexit 9500 is being sprayed at the oil gusher on the ocean floor. Corexit is also being air sprayed across hundreds of miles of oil slicks all across the gulf. There have been widespread reports of oil cleanup crews reporting various injuries including respiratory distress, dizziness and headaches.
It seems like damage brought by the oil gusher has spread way beyond the ocean, coastal areas and beaches. Collateral damage now appears to include agricultural damage way inland Mississippi.
A mysterious "disease" has caused widespread damage to plants from weeds to farmed organic and conventionally grown crops. There is very strong suspicion that ocean winds have blown Corexit aerosol plumes or droplets and that dispersants have caused the unexplained widespread damage or "disease".
In other words, hurricane plus oil plus Corexit 9500 = widespread environmental catastrophe across the southern US as a toxic junk cocktail is spread hundreds of miles inland and directly into the water table of pretty much everything east of the Mississippi.
