Colorado State University Summary of bioremediation research by Diana Wall, biologist of CSU College of Natural Science

Study shows BP dispersants carcinogenic It likely will be years before the full scope of the dispersants' effects on the environment and human and marine life are known.

Engineer says Mozart makes microbes more productive The owners of a German sewage treatment plant called on scientists to investigate Wednesday after they claimed playing Mozart motivates the plant's microbes and makes them more productive. Roland Meinusch, manager of the plant in Treuenbrietzen said by playing Mozart's Magic Flute on a half-hour loop, the plant produced 1,000 cubic meters (35,300 cubic feet) less sewage sludge than normal, saving $13,600 over the past year. The harder the microbes work, the more sewage they digest which produces more clean water and less sludge, he told The Local news website. "And the less sludge we produce, the less we have to pay to farmers for them to put it on their fields," Meinusch added. He said the plant was contacted by a company making special loudspeakers that had apparently achieved positive results at an Austrian sewage plant.

A question for researchers: why does BP release un-tested synthetic microbes when we already have natural organic microbes that will eat oil? Excerpt:*

"The physical symptoms of the BP Flu, BP Crud, Blue Flu, or whatever name you choose to call it, are as unique as the synthetic bacteria being used in the Gulf. Since mankind is carbon based, how do these synthetically created hydrogen and carbon hungry bacteria react to human flesh? Internal bleeding as well as ulcerating skin lesions are the physical signs of their computer created DNA signature. BP and their paid minions have released a synthetic biological plague in the Gulf of Mexico and it's out of control. The entire world is a victim of their greed and foolishness. By playing the role of creator, they have begun a very dangerous game with infinite repercussions for life as we know it." article recommends bioremediation for oil spill clean-up

told ya so: LOS ANGELES - Dec 9, 2010. A soon-to-be released independent television documentary interviews marine scientists who argue that the chemical dispersant used to treat the largest ocean oil spill in American history is a case of the cure being far more deadly to this highly productive marine ecosystem than the disease (oil) was. The film argues that instead of this harsh chemical, the environmentally friendly technology known as bio-remediation should have been used. Bioremediation is scientifically proven to speed up natural processes such as oil-eating microbes to clean up oil spills. Despite strong scientific documentation that bioremediation technology could have restored the Gulf to health in a relatively short time, interview subjects say government agencies are actively preventing the clean-up efforts through the implementation of extensive bureaucratic red tape rather than working to rehabilitate the nation's most productive biological and commercial ecosystems. The thirty minute documentary "The Hidden Crisis in the Gulf" produced by The Earth Organization (TEO) is being released this week in Louisiana cities with subsequent airings across the other Gulf States during December and January. Its nationwide release is scheduled beginning Monday, Jan 10, 2011.
