As for hitting the casing with the relief wells that is not a problem.

If they miss they just pull back 100 feet and cement and try again as they are using a Rotary steerable system.
en.wikipedia.org...

They can do it till they hit.






Good, thanks. I wanted someone to say this. At first we thought the relief wells were our last hope, but now it seems it is our only hope.

If we don't have that hope, then we have nothing.

I agree with you there. I could tell they were clouds but they sure look quite small and spotty. Pic #28 sure looks odd. Those clumps of clouds on the left have a pattern, and up in the right top corner it looks like a circular arc of a cloudline. It's probably nothing, but it sure is peculiar

.
I may be totally wrong, but can we rule out that they are HAARPing the area too? It IS the most sophisticated form of ground penetrating radar we have


edit to add: I just did a bit of research on that cloud type. It's an Altocumulus 'Mackerel pattern'. My bad.

[edit on 12-6-2010 by OuttaTime]


Good research there, I was gonna say that it might be a not so great example of an atmospheric phenomenon called "gravity waves" en.wikipedia.org...

Nice link. The wave cloud pattern does show the same characteristics but the shape of the pattern is baffling. Pretty close to a mackerel pattern though.

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:

Hey great article BTW awesome addition to the thread, THANKS!



I knew that things were bad, but if the Russians are saying this, we need to rethink what is going on, and how we as people can demand better actions now!

Now how do we do this?

NEW NEWS, THEY DECIDED TO NUKE IT. Obama gave a deadline and BP cannot make it, and then blaintantly told the truth why. They are getting ready for the nuke option and all boats in the Area are to be escorted out. Now not only are we polluting, now we are going to put radiation in the water.

I've been searching the internet and haven't located a single source to support this, yet would there be news about this??

I bet they'd keep it so hushed, I mean would you want news like this out?

I just found this
Mystery Tank From Exploded Oil Rig Washes Ashore On Local Beaches
www.wjhg.com...



A metal container or storage tank, capable of holding several thousand gallons, washed ashore in the Laguna Beach area of Bay County, Florida Saturday morning. Residents say first crews to the area said they believed the tank came from the Deep Water Horizon Oil Rig that exploded, burned and sank off the coast of Louisiana 55 days ago.

Residents at that section of the beach say the tank first appeared last night and washed up to the shoreline over night. But no one reported it to authorities until mid morning today.

Eye witnesses tell newschannel seven the tank had BP identifying logos on it but those were promptly removed when crews arrived late this morning.

Its not known what is inside the tank but the Coast Guard, Bay County Hazmat Teams and The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission sealed off the area for a thousand feet after fumes from the tank were so noxious people began feeling ill.

Bay County EMS Ambulance units were sent to the scene to stand by but they apparently we not needed.

Even though Bay County Hazmat teams did some on the spot testing to see what was involved but the liquid substance couldn't be identified.

After spending most of the day on the problem crews ended up loading the container onto a large truck with to truck it to the local Coast Guard Station when it will then go to Louisiana for testing to see if it petroleum or a dangerous chemical.

They are covering up so much.

LOOKING AT YOU- TUBE I believe this is the way they will do it and why they want noone in the area. Add up what is going on i think they have no other options left.

Have you seen this?

what finally worked?

two relief wells, this went on for nine months.

I had no idea.

IT is on the table, they might consider it now, now that they know the full extent. go to u-tube. they are talking about it. they are keeping people away.

¿ironic isn't it? - how something that comes from the earth is now destroying it. I think we should stop drilling on all oil rigs, especially the ones in the Gulf and remove them so we don't have more geysers of oil spilling into the ocean - this is gonna get worse before it gets better.
