Editor’s note: Other people in Louisiana have sent email to Infowars stating they have not experienced oil rain. We will continue to monitor this story and report.
While the corporate media concentrates on Joe Barton’s apology to BP and Tony Hayward taking off to attend a yacht race around England’s Isle of Wight, people on the ground in Louisiana — what BP chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg called the “small people” — are beginning to experience the result of millions of gallons of oil poured into the Gulf of Mexico.
It is now raining oil — and we can assume the highly toxic dispersant Corexit 9500 — in River Ridge, Louisiana. The following video purports to document the oil rain:
The Gulf of Mexico is heating up as summer progresses. Oil and Corexit 9500 are going through a molecular transition, changing from a liquid to a gas and then absorbed by clouds and released as toxic rain. Oil in the environment is toxic at 11 PPM (parts per million). Corexit 9500 is toxic at only 2.61 PPM.
Oil contains a number of dangerous chemicals, including Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene, Xylene, Naphthalene, Hydrogen sulfide, and others.
No word yet from the corporate media on this. CNN is covering the impact of the oil “spill” on animal and marine life but is not talking much about the environmental impact on the small people.
