Gulf Oil Spill-Gutsy Solution Restores Environment in Just Six Weeks

The Texas Land Office and Texas Water Commission successfully used 'oil eating' microbes to clean up large oil spills in just weeks. Microbes hunt down and eat the toxic oil and leave only a biodegradable waste that is non-toxic to humans and marine life. Marshland and beaches were pristine again in just weeks---not years like the Exxon Valdez spill. This is the answer to save the seafood industry and all the precious creatures we are about to kill.

Sunny already posted this video on a different thread:

It was stickied to the Front Page.

(Though I still think it's an AMAZING idea! Why isn't anybody doing this!?)

wow...your right...

almost 10 days later...and then she front paged it w/video... odd.

Point is this needs to GET DONE!!! SO ... we need to find out why its not being done!!!

Anyone have the contact info of all the gulf governors?

The State of Texas has already safely utilized these "oil eating bacteria" to cure a former drastic oil spill, what in the world are the various Governors of Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Minnesota, Florida, etc. WAITING for?

If you have not yet listened and watched the above brief video-- you must!! THEN, please do an all-out personal demand, via email, phone calls, to local TV, radio stations, and Newspapers, as well as the Governors of the states in the Gulf Coast, demanding they make use of these oil-eating bacteria immediately!!

Heres an idea...

My knowledge Im afraid is limited to household science. When the top kill wasnt working, and the "mud"was just coming out mixed with the oil it made me think of when ive Miracle-Grow ed my garden. The BOP is like the container attached to the hose- the water comes out mixed with the Miracle-Grow and sprays the mixture. If they are going to use dispersants anyway, could they not "Top Kill" down some lesser-toxic dispersant so that it disperses the oil at the source as it comes out? Wouldnt it cause an oil/ dispersant mixture that would emerge from the pipe and suspend in a heavier, manageable plume that they could park a tanker above and siphon aboard almost as it forms? Just a thought.

works

in my bildge like a charm

Will the microbes eat the toxic dispersant molecules

that are attached to the oil? Or has the dispersant essentially spoiled the oil-eating microbe's food?

Laundry detergent is toxic

Laundry detergent is toxic, dispersants are industrial strength version. The dispersant is also biodegradable.

The dispersant helps spread and break-up the oil slicks so the oil eating bacteria have more room to feed.

Free includes debt-free!

Good question...

based on the video.. it seems that the microbes can still work. (there is an email link to the inventors of the technology in the main thread...feel free to email them..and post your feed back you get)

oops sorry- I shot from the hip

I cant load video atm so I havent watched the link yet- and I just saw the below post; "Oil must first be broken down with the dispersant so the at the microbes can then do their job. " which kinda answered my question. Thanks guys : )

I don't

know if this is a feasible idea, but I'd be willing to throw in a few bucks,should WE THE PEOPLE decide to hire these guys (who use microbes on spills) ourselves. The video said the cost is about 1/10th of other procedures, although I have no idea how much money "we're" talking about.
What say you?

I wonder how much it would cost to do the whole affected gulf

area?

Now that there are more and more feasible and cheap methods of cleaning up the oil spill... its all about the best price, and result!

(see here for several different technologies..each one is natural!) http://www.dailypaul.com/node/136186

bump for independent thinking

and for Texans trying to offset the damage already done by federal control, cronyism, and inefficiency.

I posted

this video at WE TEXANS/OTHER Facebook...somebody told me how to do it...
I also forwarded it on to friends/family...

Excellent!

I forwarded this to my local newspaper...hope it helps!

are you in the gulf coast??

if so that's great..we should compile a list of all newspapers there and flood them with emails regarding this technology!!!

According to this article

Oil must first be broken down with the dispersant so the at the microbes can then do their job. Can't do one without the other. Oxygen is needed to accelerate the process.

Excellent idea

It's what I was thinking from the get go...

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow
