Remember the BP oil spill? The Corexit that BP used to “disperse” the oil can make it tougher for microbes to digest the oil. And, added bonus, it can get sucked up by human skin.

"But golly gee, I thought BP was alright after all those ads saying they were there to clean up the gulf!"
"Well, they shouldn’t have fucked it over in the first place."

This is a case that has been ongoing for over a decade and despite this ruling it will most likely not be the end of this case. 

The largest environmental lawsuit in the history of the world, today is being brought on behalf of 30,000 Ecuadorian and Amazonian people against Texaco, which is now owned by Chevron so it’s against Chevron, but for activities conducted by Texaco.

They estimate to be more than 18 times what the Exxon Valdez dumped into the Coast of Alaska. In the case of Ecuador it wasn’t an accident. The oil companies did it intentionally; they knew they were doing it to save money rather than arranging for proper disposal.”
