Ban Toxic Dispersants

4,031 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.

    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!

    I reside on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico in Florida. I have been here since before, during and after the BP Deepwater Horizon oil gusher & also during the dumping of millions of gallons of the toxic dispersant Corexit. During the spill and the dumping of the dispersant not only was I sick but my pets were also ill! I am still suffering with respiratory distress. This needs to be stopped permanently! No more lives should suffer for the sake of dirty fossil fuel!
