Monsanto once said that the herbicide Roundup was just the same as a detergent. The Tobacco Institute said there's no evidence that cigarette smoking causes lung cancer or heart disease, etc. Now we have all the non-scientist writing everywhere that CO2 is what plants breathe, so there's no such thing as excessive amounts to worry about: "Burn baby burn."
Well, just how much ice cream could the world's oceans handle before human life would be impossible on the Earth without extraordinary, unnatural, sickening measures? Ice cream sounds so happy after all. Kids eat it at birthday parties. Corexit must be good.
Then drink it straight, Mr. Ramesh, if it's so okay. Maybe Obama will join you. He'll want his cigarette afterwards though. He's such an environmentalist.
Why did the UK ban it if it so okay? Why was Corexit "linked with health impacts in people including respiratory, nervous system, liver, kidney and blood disorders"? Why was one Corexit product "associated with 'headaches, vomiting and reproductive problems at high doses'"?
Sounds fishy, but the fish aren't liking it.
