Reflections on the water

See an interview with Defenders chief scientist Chris Haney as he reflects on his recent trip down to the Gulf, carrying out a project aboard NOAA’s “Nancy Foster” as part of an official federal response to the Gulf oil disaster. Chris was looking for the kinds of damages that marine life had experienced as a result of the spill, specifically signs of oiling, signs of distress, any carcasses or dead birds and the general abundance of seabirds found very far away from land.

“Looking at the oil as the sun broke the horizon, it was a rainbow sheen of oil as far as you could see. It was, quite honestly, the ugliest ocean water I’ve ever seen.”

    Is there a way to recycle bay water to create a water treatment dispenceer to clean the bay water; may be in the process make a giant wet-battery cell to energize D.C. motors to turn A.C. generators. This would be usefull along the cities salty shore lines that are poluted.
