I have good news and bad news.
The good news from the Gulf is that they completed the drilling of the new well,and have poured concrete into the old well gusher to "permanently" seal it.(...I hope so)

The good news is that BP can now stop pouring millions of gallons of dispersants into the Gulf.

The bad news is that dispersants drop the oil from the top of the water.... to the bottom of the Gulf.

Remember that old saying; "out of sight, out of mind?"
This appears to be BP's state of mind when it comes to minimizing the impact of the disaster.

See : Oil 2 inches thick found on the sea floor

BP's greatest minds came up with this...what to do.... after they failed to use common sense or listen to their own people regarding the risk they were taking.
Remember all the warnings BP received regarding that blow out valve?

Now for the bad news:
Unfortunately the effects from this disaster are not going away anytime soon.

The dispersants that BP has been using seems to have gotten into our water cycle.
How could it do anything else?
Any third grader can tell you that water from the oceans go up in evaporation.
Whatever is mixed with the oceans water will also go up.
Then following the basic laws of this planet ...what goes up will come down...
The dispersants then come down with the rain.
That rain is killing and damaging our crops, our trees,etc.and contaminating our streams and rivers. It is raining on our children, our pets, our crops, our farm animals, and us.

It is bad enough that there are huge fish kills off of our eastern and southern coast lines,
It is bad enough that the Marine life is dying by the thousands,
It is bad enough that there are miles and miles of fresh oil sludge on the bottom of the Gulf.
It is bad enough that this oil and dispersant mix appears to have effected the flowing of the thermohaline currents of this planet.

This current is the pacemaker of our planet's weather.

Now we seem to have toxic corexit dispersant rain. This toxic rain is severely damaging... (or possibly destroying) the rest of the ecosystem in a large way.
I wonder can it get in our food chain?

It is theoretically possible.
It does rain on our food crops.
There is already severe problems to our crops from "something in the air" so saith the local farmers.

see the damage and watch the vid here

(also for more vids on this go to youtube and type in toxic rain in their search bar to see how widespread the damage is.)

It is hard to say how long term this damage from the Oil Gusher; plus the spraying of millions...possibly billions of gallons of toxic dispersants into the Gulf waters will be.

The thermohaline current has been struggling for years now due to global warming.
Word has it that it has broken down completely since the oil gusher disaster in the Gulf.
