Hi all,

I found underwater video of the leak after the siphon was inserted. To me it looks worst than before, not better.

These take awhile to load, but are very high quality.

How did this thread die? This thread should be active as this is a huge disaster! I have S&F this thread and hope others will. These oil threads shouldn't get buried.

This thread ain't dead, and I watched the 60min link that you posted. Much info and I processed it. Seems like the survivor was destined to make that interview, despite the odds. More to say later when I get caught up. THX!!!

I am glad you posted that so I could see, because I don't watch all that much TV. Thanks!!!

New images dated 19-05:



And this are my questions (in the next image)
Are those new leaks?
Is all that oil?


(it's not showing right i don't know why...)


Other thing i don't get is why the previous images clearly show an arm of the spill going into the loop, i don't see in the image i posted above... Someone?


For comparison here's the previous image i'm talking about:

For reference These are the last 3:

17-May:
rapidfire.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov...

18-May
rapidfire.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov...

19-May
rapidfire.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov...


Those are 1km per pixel, if you want higher res select 250m, it'll take a pretty long while to load but those have amazing res.

so what you people thinks?

I believe the red/brown is oil, but sometimes the shallow water changes the color and can be hard to tell the difference.

I just looked over at the blog on SkyTruth.. check this out.. it is huge and there is no doubt what is outlined is oil! And this is 2 days ago!

BP touts containment efforts; heavy oil reaches Louisiana wetlands

www.cnn.com...

This is proof that there is oil you can't see from the satellite images and is why I think that the spill area is a lot bigger than it may seem.

Please anyone with recent underwater video of the oil leak since the siphon has been inserted post it or U2U. New estimates from scientists are needed.

There is no way to tell if any progress has been made unless BP is forced to full disclosure-REAL TIME.

This problem is too big to let them get away with secrecy.


All on my blog.

New Videos and estimates based from 4 new videos released by BP

Do you mind making a drawing that shows where the oil is? And maybe add a size-determinator?

This is the best visualization you can get on the internet.

The KML is based off the latest 72 hour trajectory. Note the link to view full size on this page.

Holy crap, so now "Just Wondering" can leave. There is photographic evidence of oil that made it to land. Oh wait, it's not a sandy beach and there is no 'proof' that it's not like Australia or something.

I see your sarcasm and I agree, I hope all dis-infos retreat to their little hermit crab holes to be soaked with incoming heavy crude..

The oil is hitting something much more important than white sandy beaches, it's hitting the wetlands that spawn the most important fisheries in the U.S. And affecting the whole balance of life in the Gulf of Mexico.
The balance of life in the oceans is directly tied to the balance of life on land. Guess where we live?

It has been a month and it is still leaking. This really makes me angry and sad. There is NO excuse for not having this capped by now. BP has only tried a couple of solutions and if they don't have the person power to get things done, then the government should step in and get this leak stopped!
