So I made a few changes to my post and sent it to the BP GOM suggestion website.
I couldn’t get an adequate screen capture, so here is a cut and paste of their partial response:
Alternative Response Technology Inquiry
Thank you for your interest in submitting your Alternative Response Technology or Idea as part of the Deepwater Horizon Response.
It also says that my idea will be parsed into the database (oh,is that what we’re calling it these days?) and that I will receive feedback on my suggestion–but given the volume, I should be patient. I think I won’t be holding my breath.
Next stop; the EPA website, then whitehouse.gov. Because what’s the fun of the internet, if you can’t be a crank?
