"In School Outreach, BP and NOAA ‘Dispel Myths’ About Dispersants, Subsurface Oil"
by Marian Wang

"Even as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency calls for more research into the long-term effects of the chemical dispersants [1] BP used in the Gulf, representatives of BP and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration have reached out to local schools to “dispel myths” about dispersants and subsurface oil, according to recent reports in the Houma Courier [2] and the Tri-Parish Times [3]. (We first noticed the Tri-Parish Times piece via TreeHugger [4].)"


Majia Here: Dispersants such as corexit are toxic. They are poisonous. Yet, BP is propagandizing in the schools by offering "educational curriculum" that purportedly demonstrates that dispersants are harmless. THIS IS PROPAGANDA!
