"Oil Rain" Confirmed: NASA Chief Mission Scientist
This is an excerpt from an interview with University of California
Santa Barbara scientist Ira Leifer, who coordinated NASA's remote
sensing mission during the BP blowout.
Leifer is on the record, saying that soon after the Macondo blowout,
there was "almost a millimeter of oil" in the clouds. "And these
hydrocarbon-laden clouds - when they reach land - would, in fact
Leifer thinks this "oil rain" was unprecedented in the history of oil
spills, due to a combination of the Gulf's high humidity and the columns
of thick smoke from burning oil.
A lot of things about the BP blowout made it unlike other oil spills.
Most spills happen all at once, such as when a tanker or pipe ruptures.
The BP wellhead kept spewing for 87 days, sending oil to the surface in
a plume that Leifer says kept pushing the oil's toxic chemicals into the air.
Says Leifer, "Air sampling that was conducted both on a boat and by
NOAA in the atmosphere showed that this plume contained numerous
components and that ...many of them are toxic..."
