Gulf Oil Spill Another
I was born in Texas in 1959 and lived on the Texas Gulf Coast for about 30 years. Waay back
in the 1960s, I remember wandering along the beach
at Galveston, collecting shells and shark teeth, and often stepping into globs of sticky tar, which would stain my skin brown for days afterwards.
When we went swimming in the surf, we'd come back with brown globs on our skin and swim trunks — and that stuff did not
wash out of
When we went crabbing along the Gulf Coast, we'd bring back hundreds
of big, male Blue Crabs in our massive cooler, which we filled with
seawater to keep the crustaceans alive as long as possible. As the crabs glowered up at us through the water, we could see
that they were
exhaling thick, brown globs that would rise up and spread out in a rainbow on the surface.
I asked my Dad what the hell this stuff was, and he'd tell me it was crude oil. Pointing out to the horizon, he brought my attention to the various
that were barely visible in the Gulf of Mexico, and he explained that there were hundreds
of those rigs out there, many miles
off the Texas and Louisiana coast, and that they leaked crude oil
like a sieve.
All the time.
He knew. He had fished the oil rigs, went right out there and tied off to them and watched
the oil bubbling up, spreading out in millions of
blobs, and creating a rainbow sheen across the surface of the deep blue water.
This was back in the 1960s.
As an adult on the Gulf Coast, I fished the surf and offshore myself, and saw the same exact
crude oil slicks, the never-ending tide of brown
blobs and the petroleum sheen. This was in the 70s, the 80s and 90s. The leakage was ONGOING
, those rigs had been leaking for my entire
Check this out:
That's a satellite shot of the Gulf of Mexico off the Texas and Louisiana coast. You're probably looking at an area of 100 miles across, depicting
a considerable number
of offshore oil rigs (and gas rigs). Each of the dark trails
you see stretching for tens of miles
the surface is an oil slick
generated by each rig.
That's just normal spillage
that occurs every minute of every day, year-in, year-out, for decades
. Unchecked and unreported (to the
public). But anybody who lives on the Gulf KNOWS
the truth of the matter.
Offshore oil rigs EACH
leak HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF GALLONS OF CRUDE OIL
into the Gulf of Mexico every year, for as long as I can
. That's millions of gallons
annually. You've been living with it and swimming in it and eating it
all your lives.
And that's why it's my firm opinion that this "catastrophic" oil leak in the Gulf is a bunch of hogwash
. Another environmental hoax
being perpetrated in order to advance the Green Agenda — The Global Warming Hoax has fallen through, it failed
to touch the heart of the
public, so now they're going to hit you where it hurts
— they're going to USE THIS "catastrophic"
leak to drive up your gas
prices, drive up your seafood prices and everything else.
Gee, I wonder why Obama's FEMA team isn't jumping all over this to head off
the "potential catastrophe"? Why haven't they tried
the oil slick as they vowed to do several days ago?
It's because crude oil floating around in the Gulf doesn't burn. If there was any chance of an oil slick in the Gulf catching fire
, it would
have burned out the offshore oil industry decades ago
. Look at the picture above and tell me that
wouldn't be a catastrophe IF IT
for a crude oil slick to catch fire.
They're offering SNIP
solutions for a SNIP
emergency, because the public doesn't know the difference. And Obama's Emergency
team isn't mobilized because they KNOW there's no emergency
