5. The oil will break down over time
how much time I do not know.

The dispersant does not break down as easy and it is more toxic than the oil. That is why it scares me more.
The last I heard is that they have sprayed over 120,000,000 gallons so far.
Never before have they come close to this number and they have no idea
what affect it will have on anything.
