CA Oil Spill Update

“About 2,150 birds have been found dead or have died at the bird rescue center since Nov. 7, the day the Cosco Busan crashed into the Bay Bridge and spilled 58,000 gallons of heavy bunker fuel oil.

Bird experts figure that for every bird found dead or alive, about five to 10 others go unreported because they sink at sea, get eaten by predators or fly elsewhere. That would put the fatality number at up to 21,500 birds.”

    It never ceases to amaze me why oil cleanup isn’t implementing Adsorb-it for oil spill cleanup. Adsorb-it is a totally “Green” fabric product (made from waste fibers) that instantly removes oils and oil sheen from water passing through it. It is about time new technology is considered since the old approach is obviously not very effective. With Adsorb-it the oils could be cleaned up more expeditiously with less impact on the environment and the wildelife in it.
