As the nation’s leading scientific resource for oil spills, NOAA has been on the scene of the BP spill from the start, providing coordinated scientific weather and biological response services to federal, state and local organizations.

NOAA spill specialists are advising the U.S. Coast Guard on cleanup options as well as advising all affected federal, state and local partners on sensitive marine resources at risk in this area of the Gulf of Mexico.

    The simple answeris t sue BP. The Gulf States attys General & the Federl Govet Should Bring a class action suit aginst Bp onn behalf of all damaged parties for Negligence, breach of environmental Laws and I belive there is an action for waste that can be brought against them, There should be an injunjuction sought agaist them to restrain from transferring any assets out of the US. The amount sought should be the entire capitalized value of all of BP stock.

    I wonder if NOAA has advised the various govt agencies about using the super tankers to pick up the oil in the ocean before it hits land? It is proven to work and is about 85% efficient. Somewhere in this world someone owns the tankers that can do this as the Saudi's used them to clean up their spill. Then the tanker could take the oil in to a refinery unload go back for more oil.
