The Future of Oil Spills and Oil Dispersants: A Q&A With Ronald J. Kendall

Oil DispersantsFrom April 20, 2010, until September 20, 2010, the Gulf of Mexico’s water, wildlife and shorelines were damaged by oil spilled as a result of an explosion on BP’s Deepwater Horizon.   

Many decisions concerning how the Gulf spill could be stopped, how the spill would affect every thing and body it came in contact with, and how the oil could and should be cleaned up before the oil well was officially declared dead, were difficult to make. Although the oil well is now dead, the answers to the questions concerning how the spilled oil and oil dispersant, Corexit, will affect the Gulf of Mexico is still unknown. 

Was it smart to use Corexit?  

Now that the oil is dispersed, how can we collect it? 

 How will the oil and dispersant affect those who have come in contact with it?  

While there’s no way any person can know what will happen to the Gulf’s environment as a result of the spill and use of the oil dispersant Corexit, professors, scientists and environmentalists are working overtime to find answers.
