What Richard is saying is that meanwhile the media, BP, and politicians are claiming that the problem is over and all we need to do next is clean it
up, in fact the worse is not over, and it is just starting.
There are reports that surface ships using gps, and depth finders have recorded in the last month the emergence of a gas bubble under the Gulf of
Mexico floor which is between 15-20 miles accross, and tens of feet high.
So far this is preliminary information, but this gas bubble formation is forming around the wellhead of Deepwater Horizon.
There are scientists who have written against this type of drilling, because we do not have the technology to safely drill this deep where the
pressure can be almost 100,000 psi.
Richard states that everything they did seems like they were setting up for this disaster to occur, and they have did the oposite to what they should
have done as they started drilling this well, and if they ahd followed procedure this event could have been avoided.
What this could cause is if the bubble comes up, other rigs, and ships for miles around this bubble would sink.
The worse case scenario, according to Richard, if this well were to create cracks on the sea floor, which there are indications that it is doing, if
they try to cap this well, or the final rupture occurs, we could have the most horrendous gas explosion 50 miles off the coast of Luisiana, think
Mount Saint Helens underwater.
What this would do is create a large cloud of toxic material which would drift with the winds towards populated areas and affect millions of people.
This gas explosion would also create a tsunami moving at aorund 400-600 mph in an expanding ring all accross the gulf. The state that would be the
most vulnerable is Florida.
In a nutshell that's what Richard says in the first part of the video.
