Gulf Air Is Contaminated

[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eGxGVGiD3yk]
Hydrogen sulfide (or hydrogen sulphide) is a colorless, very poisonous, flammable gas with the characteristic foul odor of rotten eggs.
Crude oil is loaded with the petrochemical, Benzene, which is a confirmed human carcinogen. See my post, “Benzene Contamination in Gulf States.” See also my previous post, “BP Is Lying About Air Quality.”
George Uré of UrbanSurvival asks some very good questions:

What happens when there is so much oil in the Gulf that air quality/hydrogen sulfide levels make coastwise living unhealthy, cancerous, or even immediately fatal? 

If you owned Gulf coast property and it became oil soaked and smelling of oil to high heavens, would you pay the mortgage, or would you throw down the keys and say “Have fun, bank…”?

What happens if a million homeowners and condo-dwellers all throw down their keys in mass “deeds in lieu of foreclosures” this fall and head north to clear air? What happens to the underlying securitizations? And what about the banks and pension funds that thought they had assets?

I would say that the majority will turn in the keys and leave them. On another note, until late last night, all air space over Orange Beach was closed due to the visit of our beloved leader. Several friends were unable… Read more »

The alternative is that these people could get very sick or die. It’s only a house, at the end of the day. Life is more important. We leave our stuff behind when we go. If they stay, they run the risk of losing both. If they’re smart, they’ll leave: this thing isn’t going to be solved any time soon. In fact, it’s now believed to become far worse than anyone ever expected.

Dang, I must be slow thinking. I had not thought about them declaring bankruptcy.
That would be nice considering that our country is not solvent any longer.

Guess who insures BP — AIG! Remember them the too big to fail that WE bailed out! We lose no matter what…
