"This toxic stew will make the acid rain of the 1970s seem benign in comparison and, when millions of Americans breathe BP’s witches brew, wipe it from their cars and homes, and find it contaminating food and water supplies, there won’t be enough lawyers - —or oil profits—to handle the claims."
Many of the chemicals in light sweet crude such as benzene are carcinogens. They will still be lawsuits 50 years from now.
What is the scientific basis for making these sorts of claims? Is there a shred of evidence, from any oil spill in the past, that this is even a remote possibility? Where is the data to support this? This incident is bad enough without this sort of hysterical fear mongering.
