While our Congressman Jeff Miller is telling EPA to approve the dispersants being used to hide the BP Oil Spill. Congressman Edward Markey (D-Mass.) sent a letter to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on the dangers of applying oil-dispersing chemicals deep underwater as an effort to mitigate the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
Rep. Markey raises questions about the potential toxicity of the trademarked formulation, called Corexit, and whether the chemical could be contributing to new reports of large undersea “plumes” of oil suspended thousands of feet below the water’s surface.
Markey’s district doesn’t border the Gulf, Miller’s does. Can we trade?
Here is the letter.
