Unanswered questions about the spill



1- What would happen if the oil slick covers the whole gulf and the sun rays
cannot reach the sea to warm it up?

2- How will this change the climate?

They calculate that there is about 10 billion gallons of oil that could
potentially leak through if the spill is not closed.

1- What would the weight of this oil do to the sea levels?

2- How would a hurricane affect the spill?

3- What if the spill caught fire?

This not to mention the effect on marine food supply. commerce, business.....


The spill is currently estimated at 250.000 gallons per day gushing out at
forces on the geophysical level at about a mile under the sea.

I don't want to alarm any one but I think its time to pray.

Source please.

Thanks.

Maybe it was mentioned already and I missed it,

But I thought that wells needed to have BOPs for events just like this?

BOPs = Blow Out Preventers. They are usually very large and placed at the ocean floor to cap the well in the event of a blowout or other such issue.

How come noone is asking about the BOP and why it isnt functioning?

Just my 2 cents........

They were asking about that over a week ago. It's hydraulic, it's tested on a regular basis, and it either malfunctioned when it was needed or couldn't be activated in time.

1.Much of their ‘argument’ for this doomsday scenario is bolstered by this statement: “It takes one quart of motor oil to make 250,000 gallons of ocean water toxic for all wildlife.

--A. I can’t substantiate this ratio anywhere. I can't even give you a lousy source, let alone a credible one.

--B.There is an enormous difference in the toxicity of crude oil and motor oil. Motor oil has all sort of additives to aid maintaining temperature viscosity, that are highly toxic. I mean you will have systemic trouble if exposed to this crap. Crude oil, on the other hand is not nearly as toxic, and will be absorbed and assimilated by the environment… Eventually. It will wreak holy hell in the mean time (mostly due to suffocation of wildlife, not toxic chemicals inherent), but it is not the end of the world as we know it. They are comparing a raw product to a refined poison. BS argument.

Now, not all crudes are the same. Arabian crude is often pinkish-red because it contains selenium. This can be nasty stuff. It’s an element that in microgram quantities is toxic to all life. You would poison the Gulf of Mexico and the Eastern Atlantic with that, but not ‘all oceans’. Not even eventually. However, it must be noted that selenium salts in certain amounts are even necessary for life. Everything has it's thresh-hold, and this isn't the same stuff.

Don’t get me wrong, the fishing industry on the Louisiana coast (at least) is dead in the water for the next ten to fifteen years. No doubt. Find another job, you’re done. The Louisiana coastal wetlands are going to be hit hard. Quite possibly permanent damage; much of that environment may be altered irrevocably. The land will recover in time however.

2. This statement really bothered me. "This is right on the edge of what human technology can do." Oh, BS. That rig was 20 years old, and BP is notorious for cutting corners on maintenance, and updating equipment. 'Cutting edge' my ass.

3.They will eventually contain it. BP is bleeding money every second over this cluster f***. They are highly motivated on the simple fiscal level to get this under control. Not to mention, their lousy track record caught up with them... Big time. And now they have something to prove... Alot. They have their ‘steel condom’ plan… Which may or may not work. We’ll see. But they also have another rig already on site. Once they get that up and running (albeit 3 to 6 months at least), they will tap that reserve and this will stop most if not all of the leak.

4.Somebody brought up the numbers in terms of over all gallons of water in the ocean, and the possible effect of that much crude. Now even if you could some how calculate the gallons just present on the surface (and define surface) they will still get this sucker contained well before we are all dead. It’s also (highly) questionable (as in unlikely) that there is simply enough oil present in that pocket to do the job.

Calm down.

I'm being very lazy asking this question. I could probably research the answer myself, but the old firm game is about to start so I'm gonna watch that first.

They talk about very high pressures invloved, but I always thought that a liquid could not be compressed so where does this pressure come from ?

In the north sea I thought that to get the oil out they had to pump water/mud slurry down to force the oil up.

So while I can imagine there would initially be a high pressure I thought this would drop fast as the oil came of the hole.

Can anyone explain this for me or tell me I have got it all wrong

Oil-Spill Fears Subside at Rig-Explosion Site

April 23, 2010 - National Geographic: Fears have lessened that the sinking of the oil rig Deepwater Horizon will cause a major oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, according to the U.S. Coast Guard, which announced Friday that petroleum had stopped flowing from the seafloor drilling site



This article from National Geographic announced back on April 23, 3 days after the Gulf Oil Spill, that the Coast Guard announced that the flow of oil had stopped.

Why is Main Stream Media still reporting that it's still flowing, and OMG!! what a catastrophy!!... ??

Check it out!!

Some of you hippies need to grow up and educate yourselves. If it wasn't for petroleum products you'd all still be living in caves. Maybe wood huts if you're lucky.

Society needs oil and oil producers so get over it.

This is just a guess but there is large pockets of natural gas also so perhaps they could be causing the pressure? Kind of like a and air tank in a water system to provide even pressure? Maybe someone of with more knowledge can chime in and correct me if I am wrong?

Not that it changes the fact that there's a butt load of oil in the gulf, but there is a common misconception going around that people need to understand. The rig is/was owned and operated by Transocean, BP was leasing the operation for $500,000 a day.

The rig was not 20 years old, it was built in 2001. This is cutting edge technology, not many rigs in the world can operate in 5000+ feet of water. This rig and others like it are able to hover over a spot on the ocean floor and hold that position +- a couple feet in 30 foot seas. That's no easy task.

Thought this link was interesting..sorry if someone posted a link to this previously...

3.5 million barrels lost and nine months to stop the blow out...

IXTOC I Blowout

Just to add some perspective to the current one I guess

Given that all his oil is (supposedly) still gushing out, what fills it's place, if anything at all?

Does sea water fill the vaccum left? I'm concerned that the vastness of this could contribute (in a small way) to tectonic plate movement as the pressures under the sea floor must be immense.

Anyone else thinking that this car bomb is a distraction away from the oil crisis.


No, given that all the right-wing hate speech of late was bound to incite some nut-jobs into pulling a stunt like this. I expect you'll be seeing a lot moire of this.

They predict this gusher will run for at least 3 or 4 months unchecked, so just think how bad this is going to get.


If the abiotic oil theory is correct it could be a perpetual oil leak...

Oil suppresses evaporation from the ocean's water, preventing contact of the water to the air. This can result in a belated formation of tropical storms.

Once a storm is generated, this effect goes away away. The oil disperses into pools and more water can evaporate and fuel the storm. This year, there is a high probability of the US having major tropical storms making landfall due to the weakening of El Niño and severe warming of the tropical Atlantic. The official season begins June 1, 2010. Some experts predict we could have a tropical storm before that due to the anomalous conditions described above.

A tropical storm would distribute the oil into the loop current up the Eastern coastline.

It would be best if no storm hit prior to this oil being cleaned up.

By the time this world dies (due to oil in the water or whatever), the elite that control 50% of the world's wealth won't be around. Probably why they're all trying to get to the moon. ??
