Hurricane season is on the way so, I was just wondering what the effects a hurricane would have on all of the oil on the water surface being brought up and mixed with all the oxygen in the air... then lightening... It brings to mind images of the Iceland volcano in a way...

Could there be a big Bang? Fire everywhere?

It's incidents like these that always bring me back to the dilemma of government regulating the private sector. If we leave it up to these guys to make what should be an obvious sound decision, they will chose not to if it costs to much or is too much of a hassle or if NOT doing it will make them more money. All they care about is the bottom line, not the well being of the general population. They always say their only obligation is to the shareholders. Installing a $500K valve isn't going to increase their portfolio any, especially if installing said valve will result in a suspension of oil production for a certain amount of time.

I think if NOT making an apparently sound decision can result in one kind of disaster or another that will affect a large portion of the population, then I think it is the duty of government to put those regulations in place.

It is the governments duty to ensure the safety and well being of each individual citizen is being taken care of BEFORE the interests of large groups are taken into consideration. Especially groups that have a lot of monetary power over the politicians that help make these decisions.

Not sure if you were being sarcastic or not. But for the sake of this reply, I'll assume you were being serious.

Obviously since installing this valve was not part of any regulation and the company chose not to install it for one reason or another (most likely to save the bottom line), then it just goes to show the terrible decisions these people make in order to save themselves some money, sometimes at the expense of millions of people.

Thank you InsideNSA, the proven abiotic nature of oil is seldom mentioned by anyone. Most people consider it a "fact" that oil is a "fossil" fuel. The evidence is completely against it, and the more people look into the matter, the more they will see how this is just one more case of how our masters fed us a priori assumptions, to keep us away from the truth. And the truth is that oil is being used to control the planet, at virtually every level.

That being said, we should all be very suspicious of anything emanating from these arch-criminals. Of course, if you believe that Disraeil was correct, and that the world is run by people very different from those we imagine, then even plausible "accidents" can take on a whole new meaning. Yes, explosives were built-into the Towers, yes contingency plans are certainly made. But guiding all is apparently a "religion" if you want to call it that, and it is the one our masters truly believe in. It can be called "Occultism", or other things too, but it does seem that the occult plays a dead-serious role today, just as it did for the Nazis.

In this particular case, I found it interesting that the "accident" occurred on April 20th (Hitler's birthday), and coincidentally claimed ELEVEN victims. Our occultist masters revere Hitler as a sort of "John the Baptist" of sorts, and deliberately pay homage to him (or perhaps what he represents), and insist on leaving their "fingerprints" on their bloody deeds, for all to see. In this case, exactly eleven sacrificial victims. To us, it's all "coincidence", but to them, those who engineer such things, it signals "success". Each time an event comes to pass that is intended to have significance beyond the obvious, they are sure to telegraph the fact to their fellows, through the use of such numerological oddities (like the number of dead). In order to achieve this level of precision, in any of their operations, the implication is that they are very well prepared, long before anything goes down. Even medical personnel would presumably be in place, to ensure the proper number of sacrificial victims is reached.

Obviously, it's not natural, or "normal" to have to think this way about the various events that come at us, but when they are huge (and make no mistake, this is going to be very big before it's over, with global implications, and not just to the environment), when the event in question is large, even if we can only see it in hindsight, if it happened intentionally, then they will leave indications, just as they did all over 9/11.

If I was to guess at the most severe implications that will come of this, I would say there is a good chance it will come down to food shortages. Realize that, even if the oil spill failed to produce the exact desired result, it is easily going to be big enough to still use it as plausible cover. In other words, if their intention is to starve people, then they can do it, even if nature fails to fully cooperate in their evil scheme. Because they enjoy such an insane level of control, they can effectively manufacture the whole affair. Nature might indeed play it's part, but these devils only really need a good cover story. And soon, maybe they won't even bother with that.

Americans especially have not experienced real "hunger" in a long time! What would that look like? How would people behave? Oh sure, big fat Americans starving? Not possible! Yeah, just like the demolition of two towers in the middle of Manhattan, in broad daylight! Preposterous! NORAD standing down? Can't happen! Of course, IF it did happen, and they got away with killing those thousands of people, what makes us think they wouldn't kill a whole lot more, if it was convenient for their plans?

Dangerous times...

As if saving 500 grand wasn't enough, Transocean made 270 million dollars in profit from insurance claims.
The amount of oil that is spilling into the ocean is disgraceful. Its just horrible really.

Good ole deregulation, for profits sake, corporations should be able to poison the water, air, and land.

Even though it eliminates jobs and destroys other industries, kills people as well as wildlife, and makes areas uninhabitable.

Is it really as simple as the OP suggests about this oil disaster that has befallen our nation?

Could the reason be more complex? Just asking....

Where IS David Rockefeller in this? He is alleged to be one who loves the ocean and was not so long ago present onboard with the Around The Americas voyage. Apparently, his concern was all talk and he only wants to be in the fun aspect. Playthings of the rich and famous.

Have you hit on a possible motive? Did someone stand to gain- were they betting on this rig to fail? Is there CDS for oil futures?
Seriously, I doubt it.

Is it just for me that Youtube isn't accessible right now?

I blame Cheney for 9/11 and this too.

That is satire. Andy Borowtz is a comedy writer. Hint: You can't "short" the Gulf of Mexico.

Please see link in my post below. It explains how the "switch" functions.

The Acoustic switch is remotely activated by a nearby vessel. It does not rely on tethered connections to rig. If it were triggered, it could have closed the flow before rig collapsed.

Your mispresenting the truth! BP is liable for all clean-up costs and they have already agreed they will pay "all necessary and appropriate" costs. The $75 million cap is for additional liabilities.

Truth of the matter is its almost impossible to clean-up an oil-spill of such epic porportions especially when they can't even cap-it-off. I think the american and british governments should be getting involved much more than this. Its irresponsible for them to sit on the side lines and let BP struggle, with little or no hope of them being able to do anything.

What the hell are the governments waiting for? I assume the american government has the necessary technology but its classified! Classified! Classified! Classified! Classified!

Anything of any importance is always CLASSIFIED! Tell that to the fisherman, hotel keepers, boat rental agencies, golf resorts, restaurants, night clubs, and all the other people/corporations/organisations trying to make a living around the gulf coast.

Seriously guys/gals, I am so mad I can't possibly express myself without getting banned from site!!!!

Catastrophic sense of humor failure. Sorry.

It is coming on Hurricane season. what effect will the oil have on the hurricanes ability to gain power?

Hurricanes draw their power from warm water...if the oil were ignited by lightning, would that bode poorly for the Gulf region? Could we see a Cat 7 hurricane or something (yeah, they would have to create a whole new classification for such an imagined superstorm).

great find mate!

reply to post by Chance321

You make a very good point. It is difficult in this situation to lay the blame on specific people...took a lot of people to get this going in the Gulf. Even if there was an acoustic switch (a back-up) doesn't mean that it can't fail. That being said, they should all have them.
