It is Fox news I bet it is a hand picked crowd.

Money talks too.

And another thing they're doing is hiring people for the news to say "Its a not a big deal, we've been drilling there for 50 years and its only happened once".

If your wondering what the hell I'm talking about. Take a look at this fox news broadcast. Its bull# I'm about 100% sure all of the people being interviewed are actors or just complete morons.

HOUSTON – With each new look by scientists, the oil spill just keeps looking worse.

New figures for the blown-out well at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico show the amount of oil spewing may have been up to twice as much as previously thought, according to scientists consulting with the federal government.

That could mean 42 million gallons to more than 100 million gallons of oil have already fouled the Gulf's fragile waters, affecting people who live, work and play along the coast from Louisiana to Florida — and perhaps beyond.

BP and the government is not coming clean with this.
The pressure they hit in the oil well head was at 20k-70klbs per square inch.
That pressure at a depth of 30-35k deep is just off the charts.
our engineers don't have a fail safe valve designs todeal with that type of pressure. We have opened up a well that is part of abiotic oil producing biomechanics of the earth. Some oil is made from fossil fuels but the majority of oil is abiotic in nature.Its a natural process our earth produces at super depths in the earth. These pockets of abiot oil feed the shallower oil reserves you see in the middle east this is like a pressurised engine that has biological chemical reactions and natural processes that create oil.These type of deepcore wells have unknown hazards our engineers haven't delt with.

I don't understand either!

It seems its ONLY america's problem...pun intended!

Why isn't the prime minister of mexico and of all the carribean soverign islands NOT SAYING ANYTHING? Are they all trusting BP and the american government to fix it??

Obama classified the oil leak, NINE DAYS AFTER THE RIG EXPLODED, as "a crisis of national significance" rather than a federal emergency...in fact its more of an international emergency!

I have no idea how many oil tankers are in the gulf, alongside the US Coast Guard, collecting oil, IF ANY!

Where is the international community in this matter? Why are there not researchers, scientists and engineers from across the entire globe working in conjunction with BP and the US government to fix this mess?


All they had to do was ask RAND INC, the BROOKING INSTITUTE or any other scummy, elite based american government affiliated organisation.

Lets not forget it was RAND INC who said "lets start WW3 to fix this global recession" last year...and with the way things are going in the middle east and north korea, I would not be suprised at all if they get their way.

If not contained, the well will eventually pollute the entire water mass of this planet causing crop failures, no drinkable water, millions of dead animals, millions(or billions) of dead people, perhaps a polar shift, earthquakes registering off the chart, hurricanes/tornados of category 6 or 7, blah...blah

Don't worry america, never protest anything...ITS THE AMERICAN WAY AFTER ALL! If BP did this off the british coast you can bet the entire british cabinet would be getting death threats day-in and day-out till the situation was rectified. But in america no one cares and if you do care you must be a nazi socialist...right?

Ding/dong...the elite WANT to depopulate earth...hello anyone home to answer the door? If they can't start WW3 by iran attacking israel(or vice versa) an """"accidental"""" oil spill is a viable alternative!

I have a better solution and its less drastic. Someone needs to plan a cou-de-ta, have nurembourg trials for all suspected guilty and then proceed to hang all SOB CONVICTS! Any brave generals at the pentagon up to the challenge?

If no, I hope the russians or chineese invade soon and bring america's dark days to a swift end. We gotta learn russian cyrillic though and as an added bonus the russians will seal our well shut with well placed nukes. The american government either is too scared to attempt it or they want to destory earth...nothing else comes to mind!

Allowing an "uncontrollable"(I don't care how big or powerful it is) oil/methane well to keep leaking and leaking and leaking for months is unfathomable stupidity. PUN INTENDED!

Why do you count only human lives? what about the millions of animals that die, dont they count? we dont take a separate part in the ecosystem, animals die, everything dies, because everything is interconnected


People don't get the connectedness yet. The animals don't count to those people.

They should be praying to the animals that give them life (food).
But it is just a hunk of fur or feathers, who cares, right?

June 11, 2010 Update. While working out today at the club a friend of mine who was a former White House aid to President Eisenhower, a 20 year oil man with considerable oil field experience offered me this explanation: "They could have closed this well off from day one with a charge (explosive) and seal off. The reason they don't and the reason (President) Obama doesn't order them to seal it off is because this well produces about as much oil as all of Saudi Arabia. That's why every strategy employed so far has been for oil containment not seal off."

I'll take it one step further. They also don't care about the staggering amount of plant life that will be killed off by this catastrophe. Once you realize that 80% of the oxygen on this planet comes from the aquatic vegetation, it becomes a hell of a lot more important all of a sudden.

In the end, THAT is why I believe this could be an extinction level event.

Maybe I'm blind, but I'm looking at this and am SHOCKED that this has not been under the view of every single person in the world!!!!

www.abovetopsecret.com...

I've been reading posts all day, including this thread, and others very similar and find this mention of a Senator that is on the news MSNBC clarifying the report that it may take until Fall for them to even contain this is simply mind-blowing! I have a feeling that the reason why I can't find the actual report on MSNBC is most likely my inability to click on the search button, or my inability to type in the right search information, etc, but more so be more likely have to be suppressing that live news feed. I don't see a word that matches what this Senator is saying on my major news network.

But again, it may be. I don't know.

This is an absolute nightmare!!!!

I've been wondering. Has anyone taken into consideration oil being drawn up into the atmosphere with the water to come back down in the form of rain? I mean hurricanes and other storms drawn in huge amounts of water, won't this spread the oil, though smaller amounts, further inland? Won't that have an effect on crops? On cattle grazing on this mixture? Or won't the amount be enough to bother?

I FEAR the unknown about this oil spill. I don't fear many things in life, but this makes me go numb in the brain. I think we 'broke' part of the planet in a big way here. A way that might haunt us for decades and change lives forever.

I think we are only seeing the beginning of how bad this could get...not trying to be alarmist.

This is a SHTF scenario with no end in sight I'm afraid.


I agree, we have to had broken something vital to the earth. I'm sure there is a purpose for all that oil being under the ocean floor and it is there for a reason.

We have disturbed the natural course of the earth. We are altering the way nature works. We have NO IDEA what this oil spill will do to us and the earth. Soon, we will have a rude awakening. We cant count on our government most the time, but we can count on mother nature to surprise the crap out of us.


You bet we disturbed it. We have punctured the life of our Mother Earth. Her veins are spilling blood.

Those who are preaching NONSENSE are running scared. They just do not want to face what they KNOW to be truth.

However, this will bring humanity together ... to find a solution and to learn to work WITH our Earth and not against her. She is a living, sentient being. Let's start treating her that way.




First off let me say that I AGREE with you 100%.

However...a thought just hit me as I read your post. In fact I would like others to weigh on this if they don't mind, but...okay so check it...we had this whole "climate change, going green, renewable energy, global warming, yada yada" thing that had been pretty much shoved down our throats for going on what? A decade or more now?

And then what happened?

Climate gate was EXPOSED as being basically a fraudulent lie based off of fraudulent numbers right? Think about it...I am willing to bet that TPTB invested A FLIPPIN LOT OF MONEY over the years in order to convince the world (through the mass brainwash propaganda programming that bombarded us daily) as to how humanity was to blame for all that was environmentally bad in the world.

And then what? Exposed right? Now we have this "little accident" in the gulf...and after reading Prove_it_now's post, as well as seeing how there seems to be MUCH more now echoing a greater concern for Mother Earth...isn't that EXACTLY WHAT TPTB MIGHT HAVE BEEN GOING FOR TO BEGIN WITH?

Climate gate put the breaks on furthering TPTB hidden agenda that is without question as almost overnight the world realized that they had been swindled with that BS. But after having dedicated years of resources/money..they had came too far to just abandon now...so HOW ELSE could they get back on track with convincing the world that green is the way to go? How about blowing up an oil rig...THEN ORDERING OUR SPINELESS GOV TO SIT ON THEIR HANDS...AS WELL AS BP SO THAT IN TIME THEY COULD FORCE THEIR AGENDA DOWN OUR THROATS!

We face a very diabolical and intelligent adversary...I have come to not put ANYTHING past them and what they are capable of with no regard to anything but their bottom line/ultimate goal. Not sure about the rest of you, but I be willing to bet a months paychecks that I might be on to something with that assumption :-/

Comments?

Hate to be the bringer of bad news but this scenario might just have already played out... check out the following thread on this...

www.abovetopsecret.com...

Especially the chemical additve used to break down the oil is gonna be murder to biological life... ironic isn't it? the stuff used to contain the oil spill is in the end gonna tie a nuice around all of our necks..

@newbomb turk

I completely agree with your POV... Absolutely NOTHING should be put past TPTB however much of an urneachable and invisible thing that might be... they.ve got a screenplay setup and we're playing right into their hands... manipulate the masses and have all their noses point in the same direction... after that its time to shove some new ideas down our throats...

the American government should nuke the oil well site Russia has done it before to stop blown our wells and it worked. when you nuke them every thing caves in so it will seal where the oil is coming out.

a scary quote i read elsewhere on another blog.

I cant be the only one who sees that BP is deliberately covering up how bad this is. Who do they think they're fooling??? Did you notice that the past few weeks the information coming from BP OR the GOVT has dried up? Ya we have the live feed.....showing us what they want us to see.... I have to believe something much worse is than what is being shown to us is going on down there....

Man, has anyone even considered what would happen if a category 5 or 6 hurricain hit the gulf. All of that blood (ooops oil) would be tossed into the atmosphere. With the methane gas mingled with it, could it possibly ignite and cause hail with fire and blood. Oh no! Is this some kind of prophesy from the book of Revelation? Buckle yer belts folks it's gonna get real hot in here!

My solution is a very simple one.

It seems a conflict of interest to have BP trying to shut down their own well - they have a vested interest in saving as much oil as possible and saving the well for future use.

My solution is this - why doesn't the Government appoint a 3rd party oil company, for example Shell, to take over the management of trying to stop the spill, and have BP pay them directly for all the costs involved? They wouldn't have a vested interest in saving the well, but would still have the oil industry expertise to do so.

UPDATE: JUNE 12, 2010 8:04 PM Posted On Native Spirits Website Just Now

"A dire report prepared for President Medvedev by Russia’s Ministry of Natural Resources is warning today that the British Petroleum (BP) oil and gas leak in the Gulf of Mexico is about to become the worst environmental catastrophe in all of human history threatening the entire eastern half of the North American continent with “total destruction”

Russian scientists are basing their apocalyptic destruction assessment due to BP’s use of millions of gallons of the chemical dispersal agent known as Corexit 9500 which is being
pumped directly into the leak of this wellhead over a mile under the Gulf of Mexico waters and designed, this report says, to keep hidden from the American public the full, and tragic, extent of this leak that is now estimated to be over 2.9 million gallons a day.

The dispersal agent Corexit 9500 is a solvent originally developed by Exxon and now manufactured by the Nalco Holding Company of Naperville, Illinois that is four times more toxic than oil (oil is toxic at 11 ppm (parts per million), Corexit 9500 at only 2.61ppm). In a report written by Anita George-Ares and James R. Clark for Exxon Biomedical Sciences, Inc. titled “Acute Aquatic Toxicity of Three Corexit Products: An Overview” Corexit 9500 was found to be one of the most toxic dispersal agents ever developed. Even worse, according to this report, with higher water temperatures, like those now occurring in the font-family:Arial;mso-bidi-font-weight:bold"">Gulf of Mexico, its toxicity grows.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in discovering BP’s use of this dangerous dispersal agent ordered BP to stop using it, but BP refused stating that their only alternative to Corexit 9500 was an even more dangerous dispersal agent known as Sea Brat 4.

The main differences between Corexit 9500 and Sea Brat 4 lie in how long these dangerous chemicals take to degrade into their constituent organic compounds, which for Corexit 9500 is 28 days. Sea Brat 4, on the other hand, degrades into an organic chemical called Nonylphenol that is toxic to aquatic life and can persist in the environment for years.

A greater danger involving Corexit 9500, and as outlined by Russian scientists in this report, is that with its 2.61 ppm toxicity level, and when combined with the heating Gulf of Mexico waters, its molecules will be able to “phase transition” from their present liquid to a gaseous state allowing them to be absorbed into clouds and allowing their release as “toxicrain” upon all of Eastern North America.

Even worse, should a Katrina like tropical hurricane form in the Gulf of Mexico while tens of millions of gallons of Corexit 9500 are sitting on, or near, its surface the resulting “toxic rain” falling upon the North American continent could “theoretically” destroy all microbial life to any depth it reaches resulting in an “unimaginable environmental catastrophe” destroying all life forms from the “bottom of the evolutionary chart to the top”.

Note: For molecules of a liquid to evaporate, they must be located near the surface, be moving in the proper direction, and have sufficient kinetic energy to overcome liquid-phase intermolecular forces. Only a small proportion of the molecules meet these
criteria, so the rate of evaporation is limited. Since the kinetic energy of a molecule is proportional to its temperature, evaporation proceeds more quickly at higher temperatures.

As over 50 miles of the US State of Louisiana’s coastline has already been destroyed by this spill, American scientists are warning that the damage may be impossible to repair, and as we can read as reported by the Associated Press News Service:
