Pulling the claim amounts out of thin air?

Ambulance chasing lawyers are out to get the low hanging fruit that grew out of the BP blow out.

Therefore what we have is lawered up folks who are picking out numbers out of thin air.

Where is science in all of this? It is way off -----put away for if to expose might cause a revolution in the Gulf States by the people who have lost all.
Not only lost all now but in many cancers are growing that has not taken them down. Many of the poor elderly have died many of the infants have gone on and those still living do not have the rights to life for they were vaporized when then inhaled the toxic air filled with gases oils and dispersants.

Finally in the Gulf today is a giant oil plume about 4500 feet deep that is 200 to 300 feet thick 3 to 4 miles wide and about 15 miles long and it is moving slowly toward the south east. Now in time where will it go? That depends on the currents, but at this time it looks to be headed toward England. If so, then what?

Will English lawyers sue us?

I have invented the Dolphin Fin a new product using methods and means known today to rid out the Giant Plume and then could be used when needed to clean out the oil that is in shallow waters headed to beaches through time. But to build then use the Dolphin Fin to eradicate and clean the waters around and in the Giant Plume and along the coast lines have cost estimates over $1 Trillion.
