Will a successful oil spill clean up in the gulf leave a residue that is not able to be cleaned?
If I dump a few barrels of oil into an olympic swimming pool of ocean water, and then attempt to remove all of the oil with the most effective method currently being used in the gulf of mexico, what will be left? Pure ocean water in exactly the condition it was in before I dumped the oil?
