### Dick, simply saying "Science!" doesn't make you into a scientist.
I know that, since I do science for a living. Scientists say things
like "I performed a chemical analysis of a wastewater sample, using
published methodologies, and I found 98% water, 1% granular silica,
0.8% diesel oil,....etc.". Or they say "I reviewed the peer-reviewed
literature on the subject of effluent purification, and here is my
summary of the costs of removing diesel oil from aqueous waste".  This
happens to be the stuff that I echoed in my contributions. You and
Bill quoted things like "My buddies are scared of swimming in a lake,
cause they heard it's poisoned". Or "Senator X wants to have this shit
banned, so it must be bad"

Look in the mirror, Dick.
