THE GULF OIL IS BURNING... AFTER USING COREXIT... HAVE THEY GONE MAD?
They are actually burning the oil in the Gulf... where Corexit is being disbursed.

Here are some MSDS facts about COREXIT 9500

WARNING
Combustible.
Keep away from heat. Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Do not get in eyes, on skin, on clothing. Do not take internally. Avoid breathing vapor. Use with adequate ventilation. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice. After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of soap and water.
Wear suitable protective clothing.
Low Fire Hazard; liquids may burn upon heating to temperatures at or above the flash point. May evolve oxides ofcarbon (COx) under fire conditions. May evolve oxides of sulfur (SOx) under fire conditions.

PRIMARY ROUTES OF EXPOSURE :
Eye, Skin

SPECIAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT FOR FIRE FIGHTING :
In case of fire, wear a full face positive-pressure self contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.

LARGE SPILLS: Contain liquid using absorbent material, by digging trenches or by
diking. Reclaim into recovery or salvage drums or tank truck for proper disposal. Clean contaminated surfaces with
water or aqueous cleaning agents. Contact an approved waste hauler for disposal of contaminated recovered
material. Dispose of material in compliance with regulations indicated in Section 13 (Disposal Considerations).

MATERIALS TO AVOID :
Contact with strong oxidizers (e.g. chlorine, peroxides, chromates, nitric acid, perchlorate, concentrated oxygen,
permanganate) may generate heat, fires, explosions and/or toxic vapors.

Use of Corexit can be severely damaging to environment. Fire Hazard due to lack of containment.

One More Fact... the manufacturor
Nalco says it's been deploying only Corexit 9500 since late April.

"Nalco was really the only company who could help this issue on short notice," says John Quealy, a research analyst at Canaccord Adams. The company immediately prioritized production of Corexit at factories in Sugarland, Texas and Garyville, Louisiana. So far, Nalco has estimated that it will probably sell $40 million worth of Corexit, up from the roughly $2 million in typical annual sales of the product.

No one wants to put so much dispersant in the ocean, says Quealy, but "I don't think anyone expected this to be such a huge spill."

Seriously, where is all the proper personal equipment required to work with this chemical? What is NALCO doing, going after gigantic worms? The kind that create perfectly round sinkholes?

Aren't they aware of the effects this has on ALL wildlife? They are professionals in their field right? Kind of like British Petroleum CEO Tony Hayward? Hope not for our sake.
