Ban Toxic Dispersants

4,035 Signatures Goal: 500,000

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.

    The toxicity of water only goes UP with the use of these types of dispersants. The victims of the Gulf are in a virtual pandemic due to the use of COREXIT. Please look for a new documentary The Rising...it is going to blow the lid!

    Given the destruction to human and animal life I find it difficult to understand why use of these poisons is even a consideration. Ban them all, NOW!
