A non-toxic way to clean up the oil in the gulf?05/20/10 Robert Lorei
Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Thursday) | Listen to this entire show:
Next up: weâ€™ll hear about another possible non-toxic solution to the oil disaster. On Tuesday we heard from a Sarasota company who says they have a bacteria that will eat the oil and turn it into harmless substances.
Today: could the oil slick be cleaned up using ordinary hay? Thatâ€™s what a Florida road-building company says is possible. Thereâ€™s a video posted on our website that demonstrates how the process works. Earlier today I spoke with Darryl Carpenter, Vice President of CW Roberts, which is a road-building company. Carpenter is in north Florida. Heâ€™s one of the people in the video.
Meantime there are allegations that BP is trying to restrict press coverage of the oil disaster. Hereâ€™s a report from CBS yesterday.
