Toxic Dispersants Near Gulf Harm Humans and Wildlife

"Just days ago Barataria Bay was full of oil," Tracy informs while sweeping an arm out towards the south, where the large Bay sits, toxified, "Then they hit it with dispersants and the oil goes to the bottom. But then during the day, it heats up and the oil bubbles up to the surface."

Tracy, like many other shrimpers I will soon speak with, refers to this effect as that similar to a "Lava lamp."

"The oil, after they hit it with dispersants, moves around beneath the surface and they can’t track it," she continues, "They are using dispersants so they can minimize their liability."
