The Cover-up: BP's Crude Politics and the Looming Environmental Mega-Disaster


oilprice.com

Plans by BP to sink a 4-story containment dome over the oil gushing from a gaping chasm one kilometer below the surface of the Gulf, where the oil rig Deepwater Horizon exploded and killed 11 workers on April 20, and reports that one of the leaks has been contained is pure public relations disinformation designed to avoid panic and demands for greater action by the Obama administration, according to FEMA and Corps of Engineers sources. Sources within these agencies say the White House has been resisting releasing any "damaging information" about the oil disaster. They add that if the ocean o

This is a must read. I know some people question Wayne Madsen, but much of what he's stating is true. My research has proven that there is a MASSIVE coverup, I think to prevent panic. I can't really blame the admin for wanting to soften the blows since this is an EPIC event still in the early phases. The TRUTH will be known soon enough.

I will be one of the happiest people in the world if OILGEDDON is isn't as bad as I think it is. Unfortunately the data points to this being a LIFE-CHAINGING EVENT from an angle hardly any of us here on ATS considered.

Be good people. It might be the only thing you have left pretty soon...

Ya, like in the thread I started, lots of people have been hired for this cleanup near where I live. I saw them all on the beach, yesterday, standing around DOING NOTHING.

There was no obvious oil on the white sand beaches between Pass Christian and Biloxi.

Who know's, they might have been getting ready, but nobody should have to pay for masses of people standing around, DOING NOTHING!

I am posting news clips from the media spin masters and adding to this each time I see something significant.

Today there was news in the Pensacola area and I think you will find the video very interesting. The newscaster seems to imply that the oil slick may not even "make landfall" in Fl.

Another news quip from the gulf shows fishermen bringing in great catches of fish.

The thread is here: Spin Masters and the Oil Slick

There is another major threat looming for inland towns and cities. With hurricane season in effect, there is a potential for ocean oil to be picked up by hurricane-driven rains and dropped into fresh water lakes and rivers, far from the ocean, thus adding to the pollution of water supplies and eco-systems.


DRILL BABY DRILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [snip] Just when you think experts are such............they have no clue what they are doing. MOther Nature is pissed and she's going to teach us a lesson...........but like children we won't learn until it's too late.

There is other satellite imagery being withheld by the Obama administration that shows what lies under the gaping chasm spewing oil at an ever-alarming rate is a cavern estimated to be around the size of Mount Everest


Other than the death of countless wildlife, how with this affect us in the states? We all know that, unless it affects the average American directly, none of us are going to get off our lazy butts and do anything and pretend everything is completely fine.

Ya, and there are still vendors on a lot of corners selling gulf shrimp. Go figure! Something is up, here, people...things are not right in the scope of all of this. I live here, we were supposed to see the spill in Mississippi last Saturday. Thank God it isn't here. Either we are being miss informed, or, it is not as bad as we are led to believe.

Something is fishy, and it isn't the oil!

I still have not hear one good god damn reason why they don't try to set off explosives down there to collapse this damn thing. I mean come one! One huge explosion pales in comparison as far as destruction of what will happen if this leak keeps spewing out oil. The greatest minds in the USA aka experts and they can't stop an oil leak in the ocean floor? Wow! Yet there is no cure for male pattern baldness yet either.

In the article it says the oil chasm is the size of Mt Everest...


That's gonna take some time to empty.. And then what?

Don't you think explosives may just make it worse?

Call up BP and the federal government. They could use your expertise on deep sea oil drilling and the use of explosives to seal an oil leak at that depth.

Thanks for the informative article and your opinion.

The pieces fit.

Also appropriate props to Jessicamsa for spotting this story and taking the time to inform ATS. (unfortunately at the exact same time the author of this thread did
) Your opinion is greatly appreciated as well.

The major problem with that is if they set off the explosion, the force of the rubble falling down could potentially push up the rest of the oil in the chasm.

It would be like pushing your fist into a full glass of water. The extra area (your fist) going into the glass pushes out the lighter material (water).

I am all about action, but this is far from anything I could think of. I don't see how this dome is going to work.... but I hope it does.

Lets add to this, why haven't they called in the best "Boots and Coots", maybe because it would cost to much now that Haliburton owns them at a cost of 240 million and lets add some more, this only just happened on april 12th. Things that make you go Hmmmmm.........

I'm sorry but the more I hear about this situation the more it makes me want to puke! I really hope that 98 ton bell thing does the trick becuase if not this will only get worse. I feel for all the business along the coast. BUT IMAGINE all the sea life that's going to die.

They do have shaped charges that can cut the pipe and crimp it closed

Get ready for $6 per gallon fuel prices coming to pumps everywhere soon.

Regardless of the ecological impact of this "spill" the end result will ultimately give the oil companies and Arabs the higher prices they have wanted.

But this could bring a death blow to an already fragile economy.

Those higher fuel costs will be passed on to consumers in much higher costs for nearly everything and that will have an effect on people who are already struggling to get by on shrinking family budgets.... More mortgage failures, bad debt, bankruptcies and in record numbers beyond anything seen yet... more badness... more decline... Ultimately markets crash and it will be unstoppable this time no matter how much money the fed prints.

Yeah, we should worry about the sea life, clean up and ecosystem damage.... But what about us?

Don't miss what is really going on here.

I don't think it's smart sending a bomb down any hole that accelerate is gushing out of like a wick to a big bomb. How could they be sure this thing wouldn't keep going and blow a chunk out of the ocean. I know there has to be oxygen present in order to burn something. Water has oxygen in it (h2o). I never understood why water doesn't burn. If you separate the hydrogen from the oxygen you have two flammable gases, but together they become a liquid and put out fire. Who's to say that under a nuclear atmosphere that the h2o molecules won't get separated and supply the oxygen to burn and keep it going even underwater. Have they tried it before? Who knows? Just a thought.

Just a question, but couldn't they do this manually without explosives? I mean I've seen those little unmanned submarines and they have those "hands" that look basically like clamps. Hydraulics can push out a decent amount of crushing power.

Maybe the pipes are just so thick the only thing you can squish it with is explosives?

I just picture me pinching a straw, guess it's not that easy.

I live in South Louisiana and as of today there is simply no thick crude anywhere on the shores. I'm no expert in hydrodynamics, but you would have expected something substantial to wash up by now. Also, there have been very few reported cases of wildlife affected by the oil. Don't get me wrong, I'm not disappointed that not much has come of this, but something just doesn't add up.

It could be that our doom and gloom loving media has overstated the problem. That's my hope at this point anyway.
