Now with one barrel of petroleum being 158,97 liters (instead of
only 149) the reservoir of the oil deposit of 50'000'000 barrels,
as quoted in this thread, would be equal to a cube of

200 x 200 x 200 m only.

However, this would be the load of about 113 tankers at 70'000 to
each.

It is hard to believe that some firm would start drilling for that
optically small volume.

Now someone go ahead and make a money calculation.

The much more meaningful dimension is
40,000,000m (24,000miles)X 40,000,000m X 1mm of surface dispersion that the oil actually affects the sea.
and when factoring the value be sure and factor the cost of production, LOL.

No trumpets sounded yet! And the trees - first trumpet - get burned up before the sea - second trumpet - gets his. Nothing happened yet, which means the worst is to come.

Well there is the star wormwood which is chernobyl.

It's actually in a flood zone,
so it's possible there will be a flood,
which will wash the radiation down the Dnepr's into the black sea, perhaps Mediterranean.

I myself and just about through with this site and some of the answers that people with good brains are suppose to leave as answers. I am just about to believe that this is a CIA operation of dis-info. Anyone should know oil "DOES NOT" belong in our oceans.I don't give a dam if it's 1 ounce or 1 million gallons. This government has gone to hell and is trying to carry us with it. I'm outa here....

Anybody who has read this entire thread should know that oil naturally seeps from the ocean floor, and has probably existed in it for hundreds of millions of years.
On top of this, people should understand that oil is a natural organic formation and the ocean has methods of breaking it down.

The issue is not that oil is being put into the ocean. If you had a problem with oil being in the ocean from human means, well you're a bit too late to the scene, pal. That's been happening for a lot longer than you were born. The problem is when a large concentration is dumped from one area in a short period of time.

There isn't a cia disinfo campaign going on. There's a media brownout on the details, a mega-corporation that doesn't wanna disclose details either, and members of this site that are all over the place doing what they do best..theorize. If you can't handle that, see ya not when I won't.

Introducing these bacteria could help fixing the problem down the track, but yeah i think your correct that this alone won't be enough. Also all the sea life will be dead by then in the gulf.

How in the heck has the thread died?

I've basically read through most of the responses and have yet to see anyone debunk this information.

If this is true we are in big big trouble.

BUMP!!!!!

I am just glad that its a long long way away from me. By the time it affects me, there will be no internet and by this time, that means no one can point any fingers. Ahh the serenity

Take a look at some of the rigs at 7500 feet... Transocean

I'd say we have a major security vulnerability.

I wonder how our navy subs will operate in oil plumes.

Yep. About twenty plus years, if the Exxon Valdez spill in 1989 is used for comparison.
