No, I cannot let anyone accept this belief. You, me, and the rest of the world's "little people" HAVE been doing something. Every time we get a
bit of news or an insider's leak, we blast it all over the internet for anyone with a connection to read and think about it.
The original post presents the theme that there is more to this oil drilling than we were told. It is not impossible that BP and it's partners could
tap into a stretch of recently hardened crust to get at a massive oil pocket only to find out later that the crust under the oil pocket is too thin
which could explain the resulting pressure forcing more oil to the surface than was originally predicted.
"Just because a catastrophe is possible", experts say, "does not mean it is probable." Modern people's way of life has been based on this one
claim and look at what has been accomplished within the last 300 years. Unfortunately, ignoring the possible will result in being unprepared, such is
the case with this oil spill.
Is the original poster's concerns the cause of the extra pressure that caused faulty equipment and lax supervision to result in a major oil spill?
Or could the extra pressure be the result of the weight of the sea? Perhaps, the gas pockets trying to escape was the result of the unaccounted
additional pressure? We just don't know because all these were only possibilities when they began to drill.
Fear is a motivator. Fear is used to push people into making decisions. Here again, the theory of probability trumps possibilities. People's fear
can be used to stop off-shore drilling. This is a probability; however, the possibility is that people may start a panic instead. Again,
probability versus possibility: will they turn to any leader that promises to ease their fears; will they doe nothing; or will they grow in numbers
to cause a major revolt? Possibilities are endless but the probability is that the people will turn to someone who offers the illusion of having
Is there a reason to be concerned under the oil-drilling site? Of course there is. Will it create a problem? Probably not but that does not mean a
major problem is not impossible. What do we do? We do what we have always done and that is go where the odds take us. It’s called taking an
educated risk, otherwise known as gambling.
I spoke with a number of my peers to learn about the possibilities and probabilities regarding worst-case scenarios. Although it is not impossible to
cause the original poster's concerns to come to the surface, it is improbable that it would cause a major explosion. Reason is surface temperature,
pressure ratio, and a host of other variables that I am still trying to get my slow brain to process. The most damage it would PROBABLY cause is an
ooze into the pocket to replace the depleted oil and gas, eventually making its way up to seal the well and maybe even lead to a new island if all the
conditions are met. Then again, if other conditions are met, it is POSSIBLE that something worse can happen.
We just don't know with 100% certainty. Do we stop with the possibilities or push on believing on probabilities or do we choose "C” Nothing, let
someone else do something.
You may think that a possible disaster would cause mass panic. It's possible but I disagree that it is probable. I believe that taking away option
"C" would cause a mass panic. My prediction is not only possible and probable but I think it is a guarantee. Most people don't care about
possibilities and probabilities, they only care about living an uninterrupted life where they don't have to make decisions, don't have to worry
about consequences but they are all for accepting the benefits.
Do you want to know what you can do? Give direction to the masses that prefer to do nothing. At least they like to make their concerns known so you
plant a concern for the world to see and I do mean posting on something besides ATS. It usually takes around three weeks to a month before my leak to
the press gets the attention of the masses forcing someone at the top to acknowledge the concern. I already proved this with another topic and that
topic was the source of how the mishap led to more than what it should have been. I will send a message for the keywords you need to track. Can't
give it all to you, otherwise I will be tracked back to this site and I guarantee I will be discredited and my future insider reporting will halt.
Hell, I might even end up in a cushy jail jail cell, never know about the possibilities. Watch and learn what you can do!
