I been following this story on GLP since mid-August.
Thanks so much to those who are searching and seeking info and answers on this Mega-Diaster which is not gonna end well if it ever ends. Sigh.
I found this video:
BP Rehearsed Oil Spill Confidential report Exposed

<Snip> off the comments
This video exposes a confidential report of an experiment done in Norway in 2000 but a consortium of oil companies including BP and the US government showing how a deep water blowout would create clouds of super toxic oil which could not be recovered. Was it a surprise that most of the oil from the BP well stayed in the Gulf of Mexico, at depth, in clouds of small particles...?
Here's a direct quote from the report:
"This is important information, because the water-soluble compounds are generally the most toxic ones when exposed to marine biota. The results from these measurements show that the rising of the oil through the water column represents a kind of a "stripping" process of some of the most toxic compounds in the oil. The end result is therefore that a portion of the most toxic compounds is left in the water column."
