Follow-up to “A slick solution to a hairy situation”

The latest reports indicate that the oil-spill fighting hair booms that I wrote about last week are not being deployed at this time. In spite of their success elsewhere, the Coast Guard and BP feel they are untested and fear that they could exacerbate the problem. As of this posting, the oil spill has continued for over a month, with millions of gallons of crude oil being introduced into the environment of the Gulf of Mexico. For more information about the “hair technology,” please see this video from the nonprofit organization Matter of Trust:
