All fossil fuels and nuclear energy are dirty and non-controllable.
We need to demand clean energy. At least, if every ATS Member e-mailed the White House, their Senator and Congressman today that they are fed up with
this sham, maybe just maybe if millions did this simple action - we might get through to TPTB that we are on the verge of demanding a stop to the
nonsense of using fossil fuels.
Talk about conspiracies, Jim Marrs says that the technology for clean energy has been available for a long time now, (google bob lazar's car) and
that it's just "being hidden" from the public because of our oil based economy and TPTB that own the rights to this dirty energy don't want to
relinquish their power and money. In other words, TPTB are willing to sell you, me and our planet down the road of extinction for their own profit
and gain. Talk about the ultimate Service To Self.
That last statement should in and of itself make every single person reading this angry and wanting to take some kind of action.
Well folks, we have now probably destroyed a large part of the Gulf.
At 6pm Saturday evening, BP officials announced the "top kill" effort had failed and now they were moving on to another plan (more below).
I am on site at the Gulf Coast right now, and while I haven't reached the areas where oil is washing up on the beaches, I'm learning some
interesting information nonetheless. In particular, finding a hotel room anywhere near New Orleans has become virtually impossible, as BP has rented
out virtually every available hotel room from St. Charles, Louisiana all the way to Pensacola, Florida. (I am currently staying in a fleabag hotel
that miraculously has internet access...)
But it raises the question: Where are all these people? I haven't seen a single BP person anywhere, and I was out on some beaches today filming
editorial segments for NaturalNews. I did see some small watercraft laying out protective barriers, but I didn't see any BP people anywhere.
I'll keep you posted on what we find tomorrow as we approach the beaches to the East of New Orleans.
Expect more oil for the next 10 weeks
Now that the top kill effort has failed, it means oil will keep spewing into the Gulf of Mexico until at least August. That's when two "pressure
release" wells are expected to be completed. The purpose of these two wells is to siphon off the oil from underneath the ocean bed, thereby releasing
the pressure that's currently pushing crude oil out of the existing hole under the doomed Deepwater Horizon rig.
This "plan C" effort remains extremely risky, of course. There's no guarantee it will work at all. And if it fails, this "volcano of oil" could
continue to pollute the Earth's oceans for years. This could, in fact, be the global killer event I warned about in an earlier story about this BP
We could be looking at a global-scale environmental catastrophe that destroys virtually all marine life in the Gulf of Mexico and takes a century to
fully recover. It's really that bad. If they can't stop this volcano of oil in the next week, we could be looking at the single most destructive
environmental catastrophe ever to strike our planet since the asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs.
Get ready for more chemicals
In the mean time, now that the top kill effort has failed, BP has announced it is resuming the spraying of chemical dispersants into the massive oil
plumes that remain deep under the surface of the Gulf of Mexico water. This means more chemicals that will kill more forms of marine life throughout
the Gulf. [ex/]
WRAPUP 4-BP fails to plug oil well with 'top kill'
Sat, May 29 2010
* BP not able to stop the flow of oil
* BP moves to next option, one to capture oil
* Blow to BP and U.S. government (Recasts with top kill failing)
By Ed Stoddard and Mary Milliken
VENICE, La./HOUSTON, May 29 (Reuters) - BP Plc (BP.L: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz) said on Saturday the complex "top kill" maneuver to plug
its Gulf of Mexico oil well has failed, crushing hopes for a quick end to the largest oil spill in U.S. history already in its 40th day.
"We have not been able to stop the flow," said Doug Suttles, the London-based oil giant's chief operating officer.
"We have made the decision to move on to the next option," he added.
That next option is called the lower marine riser package cap, one that captures oil from the well rather than plug it. Suttles said it could take
four days or longer to show results.
U.S. Coast Guard Admiral Mary Landry, flanking Suttles at a daily briefing, said the news of the top kill failure was disappointing and that the best
option for ending the spill was drilling a relief well which BP estimates will take two months.
The top kill maneuver started on Wednesday and involved pumping heavy fluids and other material into the well shaft to stifle the flow, then seal it
But it was fraught with risk because it had never been attempted at the depth of the well, a mile (1.6 km) beneath the sea.
The failure was a further blow to BP's reputation and bottom line. The company has spent $940 million so far to try to plug the leak and clean up the
sea and soiled marshlands vital to wildlife and fishing.
The news will also put further pressure on U.S. President Barack Obama, who is struggling to persuade Americans that his administration can handle the
crisis. The plodding clean-up effort has sickened workers and left Gulf coast residents frustrated and angry.
TAKE A LOOK on the spill [ID:nSPILL]
INSIDER TV: link.reuters.com/wuw64k
The Deepwater Horizon rig exploded on April 20, killing 11 workers and unleashing an underwater torrent of oil that the government estimated at 12,000
to 19,000 barrels (504,000 to 798,000 gallons/1.9 million to 3 million liters) a day.
Obama faced criticism that he responded too slowly and assured people in Louisiana during a visit on Friday that they "will not be left behind" and
that the "buck stops" with him.
There is not much Obama can do other than apply pressure to BP to get it right and put his best scientists in the room. The government has no deep-sea
oil technology of its own.
This week, government estimates showed that the Gulf spill surpassed the 1989 Exxon Valdez disaster in Alaskan waters. (Additional reporting by
Kristen Hays in Houston, Jane Sutton and Pascal Fletcher in Miami; writing by Mary Milliken and Mohammad Zargham)
This could have been prevented, by 1) BP spending more on safety and bypassing their greed for their hugh profits. 2) The public demanding we put a
stop to using all fossil and nuclear energy. They are dirty and not controllable.
This "incident" will take hundreds of years to clean up and may leave many Gulf Ocean Species of life extinct.
This in and of itself is now a major conspiracy against the entire planet.
If indeed we have "space brothers" lol: where are they now when we need them?
How about coming down and shooting a laser beam and mend the gapping holes (there are several we know of).
Do we even know if the public ever got the full story? What else is BP hiding.
Next we are going to have another Chenobyl, it's just a matter of time.
Start researching nuclear waste, that's another nightmare waiting to happen.
I saw this coming in my initial post on this and I'm only of average intellegence, many of you ATS Folks are very very smart and the severity of this
situation is now a shock to everyone?
Most people prefer to remain asleep with their head in the sand, apathetic and not willing to take action.
Does it make sense to let a dragon loose that you know you can't control?
Will this incident teach us all something or are we going to continue to allow the use of dirty energy and reward those who profit from it.
