A requiem for the Gulf.



I have been very moved by the enormity of the Gulf of Mexico oil catastrophe. There are still people even on this site who don't believe there really is a spill.

There are people everywhere who don't seem to grasp the concept of how big this really is. Of how much this is going to affect people's lives.

I wanted to do something to make sure this has everyone's attention. I created this video in an attempt to educate the masses to the severity of the situation.

This is way beyond a "spill." This is truly the beginnings of a "global meltdown." In my opinion at least. See for yourselves:




I checked all facts I have posted here as of May 25th 2010. When I started creating this video.

You will have to watch the entire video to get the full effect.

It's only 5 minutes of your time.....

Sadly, thanks.

I think you are right.

I know this for absolutely sure: theGulf I knew, shrimped, and loved is dead and gone for the rest of my life, and probably the next two generations.

Words fail me.

Man that was a good song choice.

I'm not one for political environmentalism, I'm no tree hugger, but this is terrible.

I care more about the people and their losses to the well-being of their families but the environmental damage here really is going to be catastrophic. We can say bye bye to the exxon spill being in text books.

This song has taken on a new meaning for me

Yeah, I'm not a tree hugging environmentalist hippy either, but I just had to get this out.

This is just having way to much of an impact on the earth and the gulf in particular to not be affected.....

srsly? a memorial thread to the gulf?


c'mon guys you're acting like a bunch of drama queens!

The gulf has fared worse and she is still here, she will be fine, humans are so vain thinking they can destroy the planet with her own oil.

give it a rest, it is really getting embarrassing.

So is continual denial of any damaging effects to the gulf.

I made this video just for the dissenters like you. This is real. It is having very real effects and consequences. It will continue to have them for long after we are gone.

Some humans are too vain thinking they CAN'T destroy the environment.

It may not be dead forever, but the Gulf as I know it, and many others know it is dead for the rest of our lives.

It will take several generations for it to recover. At least.

Dear Webpirate, first I want to say thank you for taking the time to create this video.

Touching, very touching! At this time I'm not able to put much into words.... in a way, there are no words to describe the loss but I must say, you did this with tenderness, grace and love. You're giving Nature a voice.

And living in the region you can entirely dismiss this outright How?

... the impact it Is having and Will continue to have Long after the well is capped, "leak" stopped, shorelines, marshes, wetlands, tar balls, and dead/rotting wildlife have been gathered and removed.

And that doesn't even begin to consider the Huge number of individual industries, families and livelihoods this faucet drip will Initially affect and Continue to Impact, Decimate and/or Influence for Years to come"

Seriously ... talk about being blind in one eye or can't see out the other.



The gulf has fared worse and she is still here, she will be fine, humans are so vain thinking they can destroy the planet with her own oil.


Has she!? ... the Gulf, that is.

The game's not even over yet and Already your Monday morning quarterbacking the final score(s).

Exactly. Quite embarrassing, to say the least.

Have you had enough "fun" yet?

Ok you seem like a smart girl, answer me this, how many generations did it take the gulf and shores to recover from Ixtoc in '79?

Keep Ixtoc in mind when glooming about this leak.

The two are incomparable, both with regards depth, expanse and eventual impact on the environment overall.

Again, this one's not even "capped" yet.


Your "comparison" is like that of spilled fuel from a weedeater on the driveway and that of a yet to be fixed main bearing seal on a big block V-8.

Incomparable ... and not even in the same class and/or category.

I'm glad you have become an expert in oil leaks and oil behavior. The experts (petrolueum engineers and chemical engineers) I have spoken to (because of my investment in BP) tell me that they are actually alot alike.
So I guess we will just have to wait and see if it is indeed lights out for the gulf.

(oh and nice mod job letting that post above yours stay in the thread, calling me a whore is definetely not a personal attack
and the guy gets off without even a warn tag sweet.)

I so love brass tacks and personal interests!
Thanks for showing us yours!
cute, not.

As you Well know ... We, as staff, are handcuffed when it comes to actioning in threads we're participating in.

Now back to the discussion at hand...

Oh... Wait ... your continued and persistent downplaying and dismissal of this as no big deal has just been made readily apparent ... by your own words ... financial interests. Gotcha!


Makes perfect sense.

Have fun with that .

Somebody's gonna pay for the end result.
... might as well be those who sought gain from the same.

Smart money, old money is saying buy BP NOW while it is down.
You, me and the rest of the world have seen how that well is pumping out and there is millions of barrels still down there, as soon as this is all settled their stock is going through the roof. Especially since BP's work and safety practices will be redefined and the possibility of another leak happening again will be minimized it is all down hill from here, thank you Obama.

srsly, sell your gold and buy BP now, just a hint.

And seeing as I'm not involved in this topic, that post was dealt with. If you have further questions and/or comments about ATS' staff and policy, feel free to u2u me. That way this topic can continue.

Sure it is, and quite possibly will prove a rather wise investment for those willing to dump their monies into a global conglomerate which cares little if any for the environment they rape. pillage and prosper off of ... all the while lobbying for easements and protections which reduce their financial obligations when it comes time to fix their, shall we say, intentionally-expedited brainfarts.

It's not as if they weren't forewarned with regards the potentially catastrophic outcomes of drilling too deep, too fast, and without the necessary [and proper] safeguards in place ... They were, repeatedly.

No matter... We'll just send a few techs and execs out to the platform and get things rolling Our way ... despite the precautionary admonitions and advice of on-site and hands-on experienced drill.s manning and operating the operation ... NO .. this is how we're gonna do it...

Blammo ... and we have what we see here ... the potential for, if not outright, Environmental Catastrophe ... which they've continually downplayed as We've got things under control

... all the while limiting said oversight and/or control to both their corporate and governmental Interests throughout.

Paint it any way you want ... with greenbacks or unicorn-laden rainbows.

They went "where no man has gone before", and despite the warnings and cautions expressed by experts in the field(s), On-Site, even ... BP officials decided otherwise, and now find themselves attempting to stomp out that proverbial bag of dog crap flaming away on their front porch.

If you're gonna be mad at anyone be mad at MMS and Obama for watching porn, taking bribes and letting BP (and others) get waivers on stuff.
BP is in existence for one reason only, to make money, I mean they are even making money from the dispersant! NOT investing with them is the sin. Do they feel bad for the environment? yes probably as I do also. Do I think it will be the endgame for the gulf? no by all means no.
