Congressman Compares Gulf Coast Oil Spill To 'Chocolate Milk,' Says It Will 'Break Up Naturally'

WTF? I Say Again WTF? Ref : http://coxswain.wikispaces.com/Effects+of+Marine+Pollution "When oil enters the sea, many physical, chemical and biological processes act on the oil. Many changes happen at once - the slick moves and spreads and environmental processes alter its character. Some of the processes are most important immediately after the spill and other processes become increasingly important as time goes on. Spreading Oil is lighter than water, so it floats on the surface as a slick. The slick (or spill) spreads over the surface of the water due to the force of gravity. Spreading decreases steadily as time passes. Dissolution Occurs when the water-soluble components of oil break down into the large volume of water surrounding the spill. Only a very small percentage of oil dissolves. " Who Is This Moron?
