    EPA says chemical dispersants no more toxic than oil | al.com

    So after 3 Months of screaming about how much of this stuff was being used, and Limiting it's use. The EPA's own study shows it is NO MORE harmful than the oil itself.

    What a waste of time and money.

    The real joke here is that they already knew it. studies have already been done, Dispersants were part of the pre approved federal response plan, and had been determined already to be no more harmful than oil.

    Yet the EPA still fought their use, and sought to limit them, claiming they could be more harmful, when we already knew they were not.

    EPA is once again full of shit. I wish we could dump oil on their plush offices and set them afire.

    He was not defending them at all. In fact he attacked them.

    So if oil is a has a harm value of lets say 50 adding another harmful value of 50 on top of the harmful value of oil alone is no problem?
