" the environmental impact of the spill isn't as bad as feared; "

We watched oil spew from that pipe for a LONG time. If you think the environmental impact of this spill has even begun to be felt you are mistaken.

How much chemical dispersant did they use to give the TV cameras the illusion that the oil is cleaned up?

The oil went somewhere. Rather than one big slick you've got billions of tiny droplets floating around the gulf.

They swept the dirt UNDER the rug and the media has bought this hook line and sinker. I can tell you one thing, I am not eating any gulf coast seafood for the rest of my life.

Bullcrap! You forgot to figure in the cost of permanent damage to the environment, both surrounding and connected, but cost of damage to DSL, people's livelihoods, not to mention people's health (both long-term and short-term).

Thanks for nothing, BP--hope all of your CEOs lose their salaries permanently and while you're at it, give them each a huge pitcher of water from the oil spill area to drink.

Also, check out in the November/December 2010 issue of Orion Magazine (article by Terry Tempest Williams) to get the TRUE story on what's going on with the oil spill, and how safe those dispersants BP is using to "clean" up the spill really are.
