BP ordered to stop using toxic dispersant in Gulf oil clean-up - NatGeo News Watch

Posted on May 20, 2010 The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency informed BP officials late Wednesday that the company has 24 hours to choose a less toxic form of chemical dispersants to break up its oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, Juliet Eilperin of The Washington Post reported today.

BP Refuses to Comply with EPA Demand to Stop Use of Corexit Dispersant - Truth is Treason

The EPA now believes that Corexit is highly toxic, so BP was given 24 hours to find a new, less harmful solution. BP responded by saying that Corexit isnít as toxic as they think, and after giving a vague explanation told the EPA that they were just going to keep on using it because itís working fine.

I don't know whose worse. BP or the EPA. Or maybe that other guy. What happened to all that ass kicking we heard about?
