All I stated was proof that Benzene is a much bigger problem than just on the Gulf
No, your message was titled "How do we know where it came from", which was a clear indication that you were skeptical that the tremendous benzene levels which have been found in the gulf came from the oil and dispersants. Quite obviously, benzene levels could not have increased from parts per billion to very many parts per million for any other reason.
Insofar as having it both ways, I would say that is what you appear to be doing. While you repeadly agree that there are problems in the gulf, you nevertheless have also repeatedly grasped at false positives and doubted reports from very credible sources which have disputed the rosy reports from BP and their bought off scientists and complicit agencies.
As I said previously, your posts have gone far beyond merely disputing wild conspiracy theories.
I understand desiring to look for the positive and I understand a desire to not be too alarmist. However, when such a desire leads one to slant their perspective to such an extent that they end up downplaying and doubting the obvious, and frankly alarming, dangers in the Gulf that will persist for years, they may end up doing far more harm than good by creating a false sense of security and safety.
Covering up the truth and trying to create the perception that the danger is less than it is and has largely passed has been, and continues to be, a core strategy of BP as well as much of our current government. Looking at the gulf tragedy with rose-colored lenses and blinders plays right into that strategy, whether intended or not.
