If they want to take it after it gets cut off, fine by me. But I'm not cutting it any shorter than it already is just to donate it.

Maybe if my hair was longer and I felt like chopping it off and there was a donation place right there. Then, maybe.

Sure, I've been needing a haircut for a while now.

No, I wouldn't. The people who caused the oil spill should do it. It's their mess therefore they should clean it up.

It may not work as well on the open sea but I don't see why it's being negated altogether in this article - it can still be used on and near the shore in smaller areas.
