ProjectGulfImpact | What is BP spraying on near-shore waters and beaches and mixing with the oil as it escapes the earth? It’s called Corexit, a neurotoxin pesticide. It’s purpose is to break up the oil, not clean up the oil. The ocean is one big-ass rug if you can just get that shit to sink. But then, it will cost the corporations less to deal with the fines and lawsuits then it will to properly clean up the oil and provide real restitution for the damage they produce.
