It's obvious that nothing has been done to stop the gushing of oil because they have no solutions. Since the Exxon Valdez?
When I called the Administrator who wasn't in today, I was transferred to at least a dozen numbers; all in administration and who merely referred me to the hotline number. I decided to go to the laboratories listed at the EPA and talked to a scientist in the Ecological Exposure Research Division. He listened with compassion and asked ME questions. We had a long discussion about the role of scientists in this situation. He agreed that since the Exxon Valdez, scientists have not been proactive, esp. in coming up with the solution which contains microbes which are harmless to the environment but do eat oil and toxins. Why, after 15 years, have they not come up with this solution on a mass level? "Lack of coordination." I suggested that everything be dropped and scientists should be working together, 24/7, to come up with this ultimate solution. He AGREED! However, it seems most have and will say that it isn't in their capacity. I asked him to do whatever he could do to exert pressure on his colleagues and asked him to take ten minutes to do whatever he could to focus only on the oil spill. He promised he would.
Obviously, he saw the whole picture and promised to do his part in assisting in this crisis. Kudos, Mr. B!
