Yet another doomsday prediction leaking out (as if there aren't enough already) The scenario goes like this...

According to unamed scientists (that should be a red flag right there)...This is whats happening and what they are not telling you:
1. Flowing oil is eroding a cavity underl the foundation of the well head and soon can no longer be supported.
2. Once the well head gives away and an ever increasing hole in the sea floor opens up, Billions upon billions (with a "b") of gallons of oil will flow into the gulf.
3. Once the oil empties out to a point where the pressure equalizes, the flow will reverese and water will go down into the cavity.
4. As the water goes in, it turns to steam, filling up the cavity with much greater pressure than before, until it reaches a breaking point where it literally forces up the seafloor triggering a massive tsunami
5. everything within 50 miles of the shore is inundated, and the low laying state of florida is washed over completely under 60-80 foot waves.

Quick! Get to disney world while you still can!

Water would only turn to steam if it were heated or depressurized.

Oil would not evacuate the cavern to the point that it would need to be backfilled. As the pressure differential gets lower and lower it will flow slower and slower until reaching equilibrium.

There will be no cavern, because all that pressure of the sea water and crust is already crushing down upon the reservoir as the oil escapes, again it will change at a slower and slower pace until an equilibrium is reached.

NOW: if you want a real tsunami concern, all that dissolved Methane is lingering around the Gulf bottom in liquid form and it is unstable. If it were disturbed naturally or unnaturally it could decide to change to its preferred gaseous state and expand instantly and catastrophically! It would create a huge tsunami in all directions and it could even ignite and add further explosive power (not necessary though)!

Imagine the Gulf of Mexico exploding in all directions for a few minutes and then collapsing back onto itself violently and having aftershocks for the next few hours!

If "unnamed scientists" want to make up stories, they should base them in fact so that we can get really scared.

From the article

What you are about to read, is what the scientists in the United States are not allowed to tell you in great fear of the Obama administration. They are under the threat of severe repercussions to the max.. Scientists confirming these findings cannot be named due to the above, but what they believe, they want to be known by all.

Is it me or does the wording of this remind anyone of the "Olympic Torch" hoax virus email et al?

As the previous poster said 'Nonsense' !

If you felt like it was hoaxish in natural why even post it?

What a bizarre website / source.

I agree with this post from comment section:

Error 1: The gas pocket will cool as it expands, so the temperature will be lower.

Error 2: The crude is not boiling now, is it? It has a lower boiliing point than seawater.

Error 3: Relief wells relieve the pressure, not just the original flow.

Error 4: Oil will flow until it is balanced by the pressure of water at that depth. It won't go suddenly negative and suck in seawater.

Concerning the disaster in the Gulf and impending doom, there is something in the back of my mind. In the 80's, many mediums said they saw the US being flooded in the southern states. It would begin at Alabama, going to Dallas and Mexico. All of this underwater.

I was wondering if I should start a thread about it, but this'll be a good opportunity. I had visions when young ( look at my intro for a bit on that. ) and in one of them, I saw what the mediums were calling in the 80's.

Florida was changed also, but remained on the surface. But it was a desolation because of a tsunami created by the falling of the floor of the Gulf, bringing the southern states with it. I saw that some 25 years ago for a period of 5 or 6 years. I never thought it possible until now...

NO NO NO you got it all wrong, it has been debunked by many scholars that the correct translation from Farsi by Achmadinejad was....

Florida, will vanish from the history of time, by oil triggered Tsunami

The pressure in PSI could remain high through the solar max, like my gas can which I left out in the sun. Then it cooled and crushed itself. Looks funny, but still works.

The big danger would come during solar minimum, when the pressure dropped. Then the empty chamber would back fill through fissures. Still don't know how the dome would collapse unless it's integrity was compromise during some unique event.

Such a unique event could be a solar flare hitting the earth or a coronal mass ejection. Then the pressure would rise so dramatically that the dome could rise up like in Yellowstone and crack suddenly, sending the water down onto the hot magma under tremendous pressure.

If this were to happen, forget about the tsunami, you're talking about a core breech.

If we were to get a big bang under ground that has to do with oil then would it not be a better theory to say that the oil comes into contact with the earths red hot molton core ?

i don't think you can get steam one mile deep in the sea due to the presure but i could be wrong.

I always thought the big problem would be Yellowstone during a solar max. Seemed more likely. This is somewhat similar though. A chamber, or dome. Hot magma pushing oil up, seawater.

Yellowstone is magma, a dome and freshwater.

This has the potential to extinctify the peeps. But will it or just a close call? Any good tea leaf readers out there?

Gulf Water temperatures all around Florida are 88 to 94 degrees already!

Here along the panhandle, we never reached 90 all last summer, but we are already there in early June?

I don't think it is the Solar Max, I think it is the solar heat blanket (aka Oil sheen) on the surface of the Gulf!

High water temps are not good for the hurricane season. The sun heats the earth like a microwave/convection oven. Some on the surface some deep below. Some elemental particles from the sun pass through the earth and come out the other side and keep going.

The excess heat may be coming from deep below.

From an article a couple of weeks BEFORE the Oil rig explosion!

Just a coincidence that this article is talking about the potential damage from Methane dissociation in the Gulf of Mexico! Just a a coincidence that it was expecting a hotter than normal year in the Gulf, and now the Gulf is at record temperatures!

"Methane Hydrate is 23 times more powerful a greenhouse gas than C02 and represents an unimaginable 10% of the entire biomass of the planet. Much of it buried in the frozen Tundra of Alaska and the Artic lakes region of Siberia, which by itself contains an estimated 70 billion tons of methane. There are countless more giga tons of methane located in the shallow seas around the world like in the Gulf of Mexico and off the coast of Calif. and Louisiana just waiting for warmer temperatures to melt the lattice ice crystals that holds the methane molecules safely in place. Once released, if the disassociation is large enough, it will have an immediate impact on temperature sending it soaring another 3 to 10 degrees higher than the scientists are predicting.

"The increased temperature would kill off the one-cell organisms that create oxygen in the oceans, as they will not be able to form the hard outer shell that allows them to survive. As they die off the oceans will become more acidic, void of enough oxygen to support marine life, the coral reefs, the incubator for most marine life, will die off from excessive heat. The oceans will become one huge dead zone. It has happened before.

"Both methane disassociation in the lakes region of Siberia and oceanic acidification appear to be happening now and are likely to increase as our C02 emissions continue to rise. For the first time in over a decade they have detected 27 million more tons of methane escaping into the atmosphere mostly from the Lakes region of Siberia a 58% to 63% increase 3 years in row now. The oceans are becoming more acidic as they try to absorb more and more of our carbon dioxide emissions. There are now over 250 documented dead zones covering all of the oceans of the world.

Here's a vid about the dangers of methane...

Bigger question...if they Nuke the oil...could it trigger one of these???

Cuz this scientist thinks thats what killed all the dinosaurs. Oh boy, now we're playing dice with global extinction. Nice.

The Gulf event is spawning so many plausible doom outcomes, it's hard to determine exactly how we're all going to die...
