Oil spill: BP accused of using Gulf of Mexico as 'toxic testing-ground'

Oil spill: BP accused of using Gulf of Mexico as 'toxic testing-ground' --Louisiana officials have accused BP of turning the Gulf of Mexico into a toxic testing-ground after winning permission for experimental chemical methods of fighting the oil slick. 15 May 2010 State officials are angry that federal regulators gave the company permission to try out new chemical techniques to break up and hold back the growing tide of oil. Despite registering concerns about the potential implications for the environment, marine life and human health, Governor Bobby Jindal's administration was cut out of deliberations over the use of dispersants that break up the oil, as the Environmental Protection Agency granted BP permission to release large quantities underwater.
