Follow the Money: Corexit 9500 and Nalco


This is an old May 13 article so the data on Corexit 9500 used is understated by 30 days of continued application. 

EPA: BP makes Gulf oil spill worse by using more toxic, less effective chemical dispersants:

 “So why would BP choose a product that only works on about half of the spilled oil, when they could use one that works on all of it?

It might have something to do with BP’s relationship with Nalco, the corporation that manufactures Corexit.

“Nalco was once part of Exxon Mobil, whose current leadership includes executives at both BP and Exxon,” according to the New York Times.

BP has told federal officials that so far, they have use 400,000 gallons of Corexit to battle the Deepwater Horizon spill. An additional 805,000 gallons have been ordered.

The longer the oil keeps spilling, the more Corexit British Petroleum will buy – and the less chance anything in the Gulf of Mexico will have to survive.”

From ResisNet comes the following information. This article has listed numerous links and sources and is a must read for fact on this situation. 

“NALCO is based in Chicago with subsidiaries in Brazil, Russia, India, China and Indonesia.

NALCO is associated with UChicago Argonne program. UChicago Argonne received $164 million dollars in stimulus funds this past year. UChicago Argonne just added two new executives to their roster. One from NALCO. The other from the Ill. Dept of Educaution.

If you dig a little deeper you will find NALCO is also associated with Warren Buffett, Maurice Strong, Al Gore, Soros, Apollo, Blackstone, Goldman Sachs, Hathaway Berkshire.

Warren Buffet /Hathaway Berkshire increased their holdings in NALCO just last November. (Timing is everything).”
