A guy wrote an article for our web site about the oil recovery business. It's scary. It's called "The Myth of the Oil Recovery Business". It talks about the science and the politics of oil spills. You know the nation of Japan -- and 30 others -- all use this plastic sand that can soak oil like a baby's diaper? If this had happened off the coast of Japan, they would have taken that oil out of the water WAY before it touched a single pelican. We made it disappear but we sure didn't get it out of the water.
Guess who manufactures the disbursement they used to make that oil magically disappear?
