During the Deepwater Horizon spill, dispersants were sprayed onto oil slicks on the surface of the water, as well as directly into the escaping oil, to break up as much as possible. Ever since, scientists have been studying the impacts of these dispersants.

They're now evenly split on whether their use was ultimately a good or bad choice for the environment. For some organisms, dispersant plus oil is a very toxic mix. For others, the dispersant itself was actually more toxic than the oil alone. And, for yet other another set of organisms, the dispersant helped, as oil posed the most serious threat.

Science Matters!!!

How can we, as a society, become a better steward of our planet? Science plays a critical role in informing the public; and scientists have an obligation to provide neutral evidence about how our world works and how humans are impacting nature.

Dr. Eric D’Asaro (University of Washington) served as the chief scientist during a 31-day research mission to study how the oil spreads out via ocean currents. He shares his thoughts on choosing the environmental sciences as a career, dispels the myth of the "heroic lone scientist," and emphasizes the importance of keeping a sense of wonder about his scientific endeavors.
