WTF do you think was burning ?
It was the OIL that exploded !!
Some of those poor people were vaporized, do you have any idea what that means?
LMFAO ---------- Oxygen, by itself, WILL NOT BURN. If it did, our atmosphere which is 20.9% oxygen would have burned up a long time ago.
I don't know what the hell you are smoking, but I think you have had enough for today.
Oil cannot explode by itself but there is another "element" in my post that could help oil "explode", I wonder what that is? Are you telling me that burning oil can vaporize a person? Maybe it's you that's smoking something. The sheer force of the explosion is what killed those people. Did I say Oxygen by itself would burn or would changing my post to fit your idea bring you to that conclusion? Better read my post again.

" there was no oil exposure related deaths from that spill"
Can you please tell me exactly what it is you are trying to say in that statement?
Please define, "oil exposure"
And you give this a little thought in your spare time;
Pipelines Fiascos Since 2006
The industry’s track record shows that pipelines are incident-prone. Just between 2006 and 2009,
PHMSA reports that there have been over 1,000 pipeline ‘significant incidents’ that resulted in 56 fatalities, 208 injuries,$950 million in property damage, and over 1.6 million gallons of spilled hazardous liquids. The following is a sampling of some of the worst pipeline fiascos since 2006:
http://www.nwf.org/pdf/Global-Warming/Onshore...
I am simply stating that not one single person died from oil exposure. You know the oil on the top of the water, the oil on the beaches, or the oil spilling from the ruptured pipe. You give this a little thought in your spare time. Cars are incident prone which have resulted 5.25 million accidents resulting in 40,000 deaths and 2.9 million injuries, annually, not over the course of 7 years, causing millions of dollars in property damage (mainly personal property in the form of cars) and a few gallons of gas to be spilled. So to recap, your "significant" pipeline scenario (I'll use your numbers) results in 1 significant incident every 2.55 days and a death every 45.63 days. My automobile scenario results in 14,383.56 crashes EVERY SINGLE DAY causing 7,945.20 injuries EVERY SINGLE DAY, and 109.59 deaths EVERY SINGLE DAY. I keep thinking you will catch on but you continue to get hung up on trying to prove to me that oil is deadly to people and the environment. I am confident you will never see what I am trying to tell you so I will spell it out for you. We as a society have become increasingly advanced. Those advancements have resulted in the necessity to advance our technology in order to keep up with the demands of a growing advanced society. With those advancements comes concessions we must make. Things like cars and oil are necessary to meet those demands but with cars and oil, things like explosions from oil spills and car accidents injure or kill people that may not have been injured or killed had cars and oil not been around. But we accept the unintended consequences of those advancements because ultimately the good far outweighs the bad. Oil, like cars have far greater benefits than detriments. It's only when the detriments, like oil spills, are politicized for the advancement of an agenda in order to gain power that they get negative attention and start people to thinking that we should in some way do away with something that has benefitted us so much.

No I am telling you the heat from the oil burning vaporized those people.

No it burned them. Oil does not burn in atmospheric oxygen nearly hot enough to vaporize a human or any carbon based solid matter.

Had a conservative made the same remark, and got corrected, as I just did, the rebuttal would have went much like this;

The body is 70% water and the fire was hot enough to vaporize water, so they were vaporized, you stupid, ugly, low life, freeloading, liberal.

If Scotty had only been able to beam them up in time, the Klingon's would not have been able to vaporize them with their oil burning vaporization guns. Just believe what you wish.

Is vaporization what happened to the thousands of volunteer workers that were exposed to the dangerous oil after the spill or was that a different Star Trek episode? Oh wait, that's right, no civilians, volunteer or otherwise, were killed as a result of exposure to the oil. At least no one knows of anyone.

You really need to park your excruciating arrogant ignorance and show some respect for the individuals who lost their lives in those TWO tragedies.

Now let me point some thing out, that you obviously keep ignoring,

WTF, it was I said.........

QUOTE;

The aftermath of a oil spill in my opinion is kind of like a bomb exploding, it only takes one to really fu*k things up and kill people.

unquote.

Now tell me, how the Hell do get out of that, that I said some human being touched raw crude oil and died?

YOU see, "aftermath"- that would be the results of the spill.

The results of a chain of events that lead up to and during the accident.

This argument you can not shut up about belongs to you, I did not say nor did I imply any one person got killed by touching raw crude oil.

You are arguing with yourself.

Told you two times to look what I said..........

So you are a self professed question Christian and use the 40 people missing in that tragic Canadian accident, and feared vaporized, whose remains may never be found, makes good subject matter for some sick ass " Star Trek episode" joke.

Some folks will say,

it takes a SORRY HYPOCRITE, M.F., to post such a callous attempt at humor as that.

I Can't really say that I disagree.

You need to clarify your speech. Explosion and spill are two entirely different things. You spill gas out of your gas can when filling your lawn mower up and your gas can explodes when a fire gets too close and the fumes ignite. The explosion came first and then the spill so when you say the aftermath of the spill is like a bomb exploding you are flat out wrong even if you didn't mean to be. Just like gasoline, oil doesn't explode. It will burn but it won't explode. And BTW the BP spill was a result of methane gas igniting and not the oil exploding. Hate to tell you but without the methane pocket under the rig igniting there would have been no spill.

Wow, I must have really gotten under your skin. Excessive cursing and pulling out all the emotionally charged liberal tactics in a feeble attempt to get the focus off of the fact that oil spills are no more than an emotionally and politically charged topic liberals are using to gain power. I will say it one more time. If liberals cared about human life and causes of death then they would be going after the automobile industry or electrical industry. Both of those cause far more death than oil spills or explosions. Your just mad because the facts of your "cause" of getting rid of oil simply don't hold up against other real world situations like cars and electricity. You can't get around it so you start with the personal attacks. BTW I do feel sorry for anyone who loses a loved one but that doesn't take away from the fact that your claim of vaporization was so corny that it warranted an equally corny response and that's exactly what you got.
