“Did you see the other areas that were previously oil free which were now contaminated?”

Not sure what the implication is here. Right now, we have “surges” of oil washing onshore that appear in fairly highly-concentrations. when a storm comes in, there will be high winds, high waves and lots and lots of rain, all of which will cause this oil to, in your words “contaminate” much larger areas. However, the oil will be dispersed in such low ppm(parts per million) that it will be effectively immaterial to concern oneself with.

“So the hurricane will reduce the amount of oil that has been spilled?”

once again, the oil exists in bands that are concentrated. if mixed up with multitudes of water, this will no longer be the case. the ppm will be extremely small. No one ever said oil disappears, it is just dispersed until it effectively is immaterial to worry about.

Did you know that there are acceptable levels of contaminants allowed in the water you drink?http://www.epa.gov/safewater/contaminants/index.html

really? I’m sure you have some science to base that on.

NO Really?

STUPIDIST idea EVER that a hurricane will help this situation.
