For months I have been asking people at Deepwater Horizon and BP why they have not used hay or hair to start cleaning up the Gulf.
I understand that hair sinks and the reason BP did not want to not use hair put in nylon liners to become sponge-like things that soak up the oil in the Gulf. Why not use it to help plug the hole? Why not attach it to boats and have unemployed fisherman drive their boats through this oil soaked waters once known as the clean Gulf Coast. Let’s clean this up; right?
While Matter of Trust can now say that all 19 warehouses in the gulf are filling up. Yet, they only have enough to make 2.5 miles of boom. 10 miles have already been made by over 600 volunteers. We need 5 million miles people!!!!!National Guard helping take oil soaked booms to a truck to be scrubbed and back out to cleanup.
Here is what can be done..
Since all responses on the ground (ie once it hits shore) is municipality or locally based, we CAN make a difference.
Matter of Trust needs more volunteers and funding for outer mesh.
