Gulf Oil Spill 2010: Health & Safety Overview
Calling all voices for clean energy + oil company accountability! Photo: Scented_Mirror My husband and I were in marital therapy the other day (yes, we go to marital therapy). It’s where my husband and I actually talk. There’s a certain safety about saying what’s on our mind about what’s bothering us, where we’re stuck, etc. in the presence of a “mediator.” If the other becomes defensive, I can guarantee that the therapist will call it out and dig deeper into the why’s and wherefore’s. The situation gets defused and we’re able to move closer to understanding each other.

Oil spill dispersant could damage coral populations - environment - 03 August 2010 Coral populations in the Gulf of Mexico could fall because of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig disaster – from contact not with oil but with the dispersant that's supposed to get rid of it. Laboratory tests suggest that Corexit 9500A, the dispersant used by BP to tackle the largest offshore oil spill in US history, stops coral larvae latching onto the surfaces where they usually mature. The larvae, often the size of a pinhead, float in the sea before latching onto surfaces such as rocks on the sea floor, cliff faces or old oil rigs. It takes hundreds of years for a mature colony to develop.
