not all of the water, just 1/3

revelations 8:8-9

When the second angel blew his trumpet, something like a huge mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea. One-third of the sea turned into blood, 9one-third of the creatures that were living in the sea died, and one-third of the ships was destroyed.

I found this:

" If the top kill doesn't work, the next plan in line is installing a "lower marine riser package" (LMRP) to essentially pump the oil to a waiting ship. BP's description:

"This would first involve removing the damaged riser from the top of the BOP, leaving a cleanly-cut pipe at the top of the BOP's LMRP. The LMRP cap, an engineered containment device with a sealing grommet, would be connected to a riser from the Discoverer Enterprise drillship and then placed over the LMRP with the intention of capturing most of the oil and gas flowing from the well and transporting it to the drillship on the surface. The LMRP cap is already on site and it is anticipated that this option will be available for deployment by the end of May."

From : blogs.chron.com...

My question is, if they can cut the pipe and attach another riser thingamabob to the broken BOP for pumping into a ship, why then cant they do that now, and instead of continuing to pump into a ship, cap That pipe off?

If they knew they could do that.. why wait 35 days????

You see, they can do that NOW.. this is all a sham for PB to maintain control of the oil to make money off of it. They don't want this leak simply plugged.

Like another thread said, " It's PB's Oil ! " BS. its Every bodies oil, it's the Earths oil. I say they have no right to take it from the ground in the first place. The oil people and the people who give them the o.k. to pump are rapists.

Don't I feel anything for the people who make their living drilling oil? - Oh you mean Earth Rapists. No. They can learn to do something else for a living.

I can't believe some of the incredibly uninformed ideas on this thread. Some are so "out there" that I question humanity's intelligence. (If there are any engineers reading this, I suspect you feel the same way?)

I read an article recently from an Oil Engr with a simple solution. Shaped charges to cut the pipe...install valve on the clean cut....close valve...problem solved. It's proven technology and the ocean depth even makes it more simple.

Why this hasn't already been completed, I don't understand?



Please (before you mention explosives again) read all of this short page:
Infomred folks:

Quote from anonymous engineer:
Well, this time they hit a pocket of oil [really methane!!] at such high pressure that it burst all of their safety valves all the way up to the drilling rig and then caused the rig to explode and sink. Take a moment to grasp the import of that. The pressure behind this oil is so high that it destroyed the maximum effort of human science to contain it.

I assume you use no petroleum based products right? You walk everywhere, and certainly dont use any form of plastic among other things right?

If you do use petroleum products, you are an accessory to rape.

See how little sense your logic makes?

gotta say I find this whole "there is already a thread on this" remark kinda childish. I believe I had the VERY first oil spill cam thread out there dating may 20th... Didn't get a post in it since I posted the link before the cam went online but I dont care someone else reposts it...

gotta say though... If this collapsing business is real things are gonna be speeding up big-time.. especially the thing about this oil-reserve not drying up in a hundred years (at a rate of 500000 barrels a day) seriously spells some doom & gloom

The first question that pops into mind is this, if everything we had wasn't enough to stop the pressure of this deposit from erupting out and destroying everything (and killing 11 people), how do they think we can successfully cap this and stop it? Am I the only one that thinks it's ridiculous to suggest that this deposit blew the hell out of state of the art equipment, but we're gonna go down there with some mud and plug it up? I don't think there's a snowball's chance in hell of that working.

I better way to watch the live stream, on windows, is to click start, run, and then:

wmplayer mfile.akamai.com...:46245.asx?bkup=46260

This will open the live stream in a native media player instance, which lets you resize, zoom, etc.

My logic makes perfect sense to me. As I have stated before, I do everything I can not to use oil products. Everything oil can do can be done with another form of energy. You can heat/cool and provide energy for your home with alternative forms of energy. You can use transportation with other forms of energy. As for products made with oil, we don't need them. Yes, I have some plastic.. I have to have There is so much of the crap you can't function without touching something made by an oil product.

The point it to stop this garbage and force the planet to go green. It will take a while to phase out all oil based products and replace them with others not produced with oil, but we can and should do it.

Too little of that is being done. We need to build the green infrastructure and at the same time shut down oil companies to force people to lessen dependence on them.

When you have a heroin (oil) junkie and you give him methadone (oil alternative) he will use it.. but only as long as you take away the heroin suppliers and the heroin supply.

Have you ventured out as a "green" entrepreneur and started your own green energy business?

Installed PV panels on your roof, or utilized hydro or wind energy in your home?

THIS ... might just be a wonderful thing!!

Possible fix for Gulf Oil Spill ...

For these who can't watch the feed because of techincal problems, you need video codecs- there are a lot of codecs because software designers always think their # smells better than the others.

If you don't have the right codec you can't watch the oil volcano stream on the doom and gloom channel. I suggest a third party video player like kmp player (If I spelled that right) which should come with its own codec package but don't just download every codec under the sun.

OR:
Maybe this would work?

Also in this thread, on page 18 I think .. this is a long-ish thread.

Anyone care to describe what the heck is happening right now?
I am watching this at 2am and I see this huge tube like thing and no leak anymore.
Earlier it was gushing and easy to see. Now I don't understand what I am even looking at?!?

This same drilling outfit caused a spill like this for Mexico in 1997 (I have it here on ATS) ... it took 9 months to fix it, and it was shallow! BP does not want panic or elbows in their way ... have you wondered if the pumping of mud into this well will ruin a lot of the 2768 other off shore wells tied to this deposit? ... enemies in the woodwork coming up? ~Bad Vibes, and worse effects?

I don't get alerts ?? ... anyway ... I read about the reporter from 60 Minutes who was on the platform when it blew ... it was very interesting:

... He said they were testing the annulus (rubber closure ring --- and someone else did a joy-stick-wrong and moved something during the test!! ... and he freaked -- and rubber floated up to the surface, and he freaked more ... and they said "don't worry" and ... then it blew up --[methane!])
...
and "that" may have been the issue!

IF SO --- there will be huge bribes, or a lot of very bad press, and after looking at that video about oil workers and their training schools and how well they pay attention to things (not in class, but over drinks in the bar --getting paid to be in class!):

"Both Vids" on this page are amazing!!

... There may occur new industry standards for Oil Workers! and Oil Work!
---
Which will be run by Government oversight agencies which will be watch-dogged ... because this sort of stuff cannot happen anymore!! (I hope).

So, maybe the edge of the field is the way to go, and maybe this is not what it looks like on the surface (there were other "issues") and I just hope that they can fix it with the GREEN SOLUTION which is on You Tube, and skip any more of the toxic additive that keeps MUCH of the issue out of sight, but killing everything it touches ... likely .. (they are not above board one bit!)

Give this a try!!

So ... not saying the pressure is impossible, just very large, and likely part of the reason for the blow. If they fix it tomorrow -- GOOD! .. I hope so. If not ... we have more reason to want stronger safety measures for industries which can endanger the planet and it's people.

Looks like progress!

Yea man I'm confused at hell too. I didn't see any oil anymore either. Is it possible they fixed the leak ... ?

As I'm typing this the picture's i back and I'm seeing a tube sliding down or something. I saw some dark black stuff in the lower left corner of the screen ... but there doesn't seem to be the black cloud like there was before.

I THINK that we're seeing the line that will pump the concrete/mud slurry into the broken pipe. It seems to be at a slightly higher altitude to the main black cloud of oil spill, but if you look carefully at the haze in the background, every now and then you catch a glimpse of the black oil still rising. I think we're waiting until the ship crew are ready to start pumping slurry, then we'll see more manoeuvrings of the delivery nozzle into position. FWIW.

Let's hope they have capped this. My heart breaks for the sea creatures and all who will be affected by this for some time to come.
