This pamphlet is an excerpt from the Lawrence Anthony Earth Organization’s (LAEO’s) Science and Technology Committee research paper entitled: A Call for a Twenty-first Century Solution in Oil Spill Response. While it is recommended that the complete research paper is studied, this excerpt is being made widely available as critical information for educational purposes. The limitations and issues with current preapproved oil spill response systems and tools in the U.S. and many countries around the world are illustrated in this pamphlet using British Petroleum oil rig blowout in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010 and the subsequent incomplete spill cleanup response as an example. Outdated chemical dispersant cleanup technologies are revealed and effective, modern-day modes of spill cleanup are explained.
