    do these people not understand that most of the oil is well down UNDERwater and not on the surface where tankers can skim it off?  Seriously, the oil is leaking a mile BELOW the surface, most of it does not come up to the surface (this aint Beverley Hillbillies folks where crude comes bubbling up) and stays below suface being caught up in the underwater eddies and currents.

      If the toxic dispersants were not injected underwater, then more of the oil might rise to the surface, making it accessible to the supertankers.
