As hurricane season approaches, the giant oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico takes weather forecasters into nearly uncharted waters.
The Gulf is a superhighway for hurricanes that form or explode over pools of hot water, then usually move north or west toward the coast. The site of the sunken rig is along the general path of some of the worst storms ever recorded, including Hurricane Camille, which wiped out the Mississippi coast in 1969, and Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
The season officially starts Tuesday, and while scientists seem to agree that the sprawling slick isn't likely to affect the formation of a storm, the real worry is that a hurricane might turn the millions of gallons of floating crude into a crashing black surf.
Some fear a horrific combination of damaging winds and large waves pushing oil deeper into estuaries and wetlands and coating miles of debris-littered coastline in a pungent, sticky mess.
A hurricane like Katrina "would be a worst-case scenario" with oil pushed far ashore, said National Wildlife Federation scientist Doug Inkley.
Experts are predicting a busy hurricane season with powerful storms. Bastardi predicts seven named storms, five hurricanes and two or three major hurricanes will have an effect on land this year. Colorado State University researchers Philip Klotzbach and William Gray predict a 69 percent chance that at least one major hurricane will make landfall on the U.S. and a 44 percent chance that a major hurricane will hit the Gulf Coast.

Now i am going to say this and say this now because this is an absolute joke now. I am honestly starting to wonder if they are actually trying to fix this at all. I also think that we as a species are been filled with the same crap that the hole is. This i think will turn out to be the biggest conspiracy in the history of mankind. Mark my words and remember this post. When this started i stated what the implications were, yet, what did i get? Grief.
I will also say this one last time and will not mention it again.
Start Collecting Water Containers and fill them
Listen, Dont Listen its up to you but just this once?
Also i think that the oil that has leaked has been replaced by sea water, its a different structure completely. Now i know that here on ATS theres some that are light years ahead of me intelectually, and its these people i want here and now to answer a question for me.
As i mentioned before.
The oil and gas that has leaked has or will be replaced by sea water?
The sea water is made up in a different molecular setup?
Would the current events possibly lead to the sea floor collapsing on a huge scale, leading to some sort of earthquake that will hit the US/Mexico border?
Dont forget the current volcanic events, earthquakes and solar flares.
I already, on another thread pointed out "what happens when the hurricanes start flinging oil all over the land, but whats expected when the dispersants and added to the equation?
Also why is there major similarities in current events and The Bible, Revelations, 7 Trumpets?
Please i have loads of questions.

just a random thought, water temperatures in the gulf are usually quite warm hence all the hurricanes, could the color of the oil increase these temps. My reasoning being, wear a black shirt on a warm sunny day, less sunlight reflect thus temperature increase. Is it possible for the oil to raise the water temp and make even stronger hurricanes?
