We, the undersigned, oppose the federal government's decision to use toxic chemical dispersants in oil spill response. We are concerned about the long-term health consequences to humans and wildlife following wide-spread use of Corexit during the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster. Human health must be a higher priority than corporate profit. We oppose the federal government's treatment of human health as a risk tradeoff when considering products. We demand that the EPA immediately and permanently removes all products that contain known human health hazards and/or proprietary ingredients from its Product Schedule. Further, we demand that the National Contingency Plan be amended to require that all products used in disaster response must first be proven safe to human health and the environment.

We need a 28th amendment !
Ban these chemicals and recognise it is time to consider alternatives to oil rigs that cannot be cleaned up if they spill. Oil is meant to be in the ground There are far better technologies
