Bp kills my gold fish in pond (true story)

Not only the oil we have to worry about but the side effects of the thousands of gallons of oil dispersant in the water and air.I live in the panhandle where just off shore they spray thousands of gallons a day to break up the oil in the water but some of this stays air born and settles on shore and roof tops made of asphalt which react to this chemical.My pond was designed to collect the rain water from my roof and has worked perfect for more than 15 years.Suddenly i have a fish-kill after brief rain.
In the scale of things happening to the gulf this is minor but something more to think about.

I recently heard of a North Carolina man who discovered crude-oil contaminant in a fresh-water pond within his property. The Corexit neurotoxin/pesticide/solvent just allows the crude contaminant to be more easily picked up and dispersed by storms and strong air currents--and it NEVER was practical for pollution-management (this known since the time of the ExxonValdez clean-up).
