So you are 100% Vegan correct?

Anything less would make you a hypocrite.

The other leak has been kept quiet for weeks is my guess. They state that an oil plume of this size was not created by the leaks that BP says exist at the moment.

I was really amazed how many people jumped on this as a hoax when there are numerous reliable sources reporting this issue. If ever disinfo nubs were around here, they sure have stepped out of the shadows on this one

THe thing is it was reported before the press conference Obama had earlier today. I have a suspicion it wasn't reported after the initial release due to a government hush hush . The press conference would've been a lot tougher for Mr. Prez if it was pasted everywhere.

So it's a new leak....

But how big is it?

I mean it would have to be huge for a plume that large would it not?

It could be because there's been mobs of people screaming OILPOCALYPSE for weeks on end. Talking about total the whole world being destroyed by an oil slick BLOB covering the earth. Look out UK, its COMING! Tampa and the rest of Florida get ready to evacuate! The hurricane is going to EXPLODE and cause an oil slick tsunami! EVERYTHING in the Gulf will be DEAd, and then the rest of the earths oceans!!!!

The placed Obama aka Berry at the helm to be a punching bag. When Biden started popping off about Obama facing challenges early on in his term I just knew they were gonna dump on him

by the way, I am not an Obama supporter

Wouldn't an oil slick inhibit the evaporation process, thereby keeping
hurricanes from becoming as strong as they would have otherwise?

Second plume discovered
In another troubling discovery, marine scientists said they have spotted a huge new plume of what they believe to be oil deep beneath the Gulf, stretching 22 miles from the leaking wellhead northeast toward Mobile Bay, Ala. They fear it could have resulted from using chemicals a mile below the surface to break up the oil.

Just one paragraph on this and its called a plume not a leak. Anyone heard anything else?

Huge? OMG what is going on?

Amen! Oh my, isn't that the truth? Why is this oil allowed to flow so far out to sea and not be contained? Why are there not ships sucking up every bit of it as it surfaces? Why is not the ocean floor being covered to plug all leaks along all pipes? Why is everyone just watching BP slowly commit suicide? Why? Why? Why? Why is everyone just sitting on their butts and twiddling their fingers? What is the matter? People!

It's not a new oil leak, it is a plume of oil from the first leak that is travelling under water (oil gathers together into huge bodies under water). This is not a new leak, as far as I can tell, although it is disasterous, and speaks to how much BP had downplayed this thing.

Exactly. It says that in this story:

No new leak from any fracture or well.

I think the magnitude of this disaster in the making has all the experts
totally, absolutely in shock and awe. They work feverishly to skim oil
from the surface, knowing good and well that 95% of 30 million gallons
is spread out over hundreds of square miles beneath the Gulf. There
is no technology available to counteract millions of gallons of oil
submerged up to a mile under the surface and being carried along
invisibly by currents that run in multiple directions.

Well, it could very well happen - all of that. Sure we mustn't overreact but to downplay the whole thing like you're effectively doing via sarcasm towards concerned folk, is a tragedy in itself.

Like another person said earlier, I'm trying to bring across the latest info on this spill and nobody seems to care. They care about American Idol, Farmville and Mafia Wars on Facebook and meanwhile our tv news is reporting the 'top kill' as a success - even though I'm looking at the BP live cam right now and that mud is pouring out faster than the oil itself was.

The world has gone crazy - and nobody cares.

I just finished watching Larry King tonight on CNN. T. Boone Pickens came right and said "I dont think this will work". What he also said was that they are at this moment drilling a relief well just as fast as they can. Only then will BP be able to cap the old well and stop the flow.

Who is T Boone Pickens

Turns out he Chairs the hedge fund BP Capital management. Si they will come out later down the road and say the plan that we really had was drilling a relief well while trying to do the impossible. BP will say we went above and beyond by doing two procedures at once.

Appears that BP, media, and politicians really think we are dumb or just could care less about what they do.

Use the search next time or look on the front page. The thread above has alot more detail and ALOT more input.

I will say thanks tho, but only because there are other people who are showing it, 1 source is not enough.

As I looked at Obama's face today during his press conference, I got a feeling that there is something else wayyyy bigger than this oil spill going on. There's something else bigger, and it's not N. or S. Korea. I do feel that he's entirely inept at handling this disaster and it shows. But there's a sense that something else is happening right now that we don't know about.

And it's very possible that wikileaks is about to expose it.

I own an underground propane tank and became very concerned when the tank-technician told me it was old and needed to be replaced to keep it from leaking into the ground.

At first, I thought he was just trying to scare me into buying a new tank, and assumed incorrectly that any leak would just bubble up to the surface near the tank.

WRONG. After doing some research, I found out that "underground gas and oil leaks" can travel miles underground depending on the geology.

THE POINT: In the Gulf of Mexico, it is very possible that couplers blew out far below the sea floor in multiple locations. The leak could be traveling under the gulf and emerge tens to hundreds of miles from the well.

Its also possible that this situation will prevent a TOP KILL from ever working. Very deep "Relief wells" that cut off the pressure feeding the underground streams, is most likely the only solution, short of BOMBING the sea bed.

Edit for typo.

Looks like Iceland and a few Island countries will default next after Greece. Is that what you are eluding to?

It looks as though there are significant prospects that we will soon be at the unfortunate point of having to literally discuss the Nuclear option for dealing with the situation.

Among the conversation points:
Ecological toll.
Geopolitical considerations (Iran etc.).
Political considerations.
Economic impact.
Possibility of geophysical/geological consequences.

I have my own thoughts on the matter but would be interested to hear what others think.

Edit: I created a new thread for this discussion.

Well, why don't you simply address each point? What are the ecological problems from this? How will this affect the political issues pertaining to oil production? Why would BP not accept advice from Iran? What are the political implications for the rest of the world? Will this effect the price of oil? Will there be shrimp and crayfish in restaurants? I passed a restaurant sign today that read Louisiana oysters, and I nearly gulped! what, served with oil?
