How the ultimate BP Gulf disaster could kill millions

A cascading catastrophe...

With the emerging evidence of fissures, the quiet fear now is the methane bubble rupturing the seabed and exploding into the Gulf waters. If the bubble escapes, every ship, drilling rig and structure within the region of the bubble will instantaneously sink. All the workers, engineers, Coast Guard personnel and marine biologists measuring the oil plumes' advance will instantly perish.

As horrible as that is, what would follow is an event so potentially horrific that it equals in its fury the Indonesian tsunami that killed more than 600,000, or the destruction of Pompeii by Mt. Vesuvius.

The ultimate Gulf disaster, however, would make even those historical horrors pale by comparison. If the huge methane bubble breaches the seabed, it will erupt with an explosive fury similar to that experienced during the eruption of Mt. Saint Helens in the Pacific Northwest. A gas gusher will surge upwards through miles of ancient sedimentary rock—layer after layer—past the oil reservoir. It will explode upwards propelled by 50 tons psi, burst through the cracks and fissures of the compromised sea floor, and rupture miles of ocean bottom with one titanic explosion.

The burgeoning methane gas cloud will surface, killing everything it touches, and set off a supersonic tsunami with the wave traveling somewhere between 400 to 600 miles per hour.


A supersonic tsunami would literally sweep away everything from Miami to the panhandle in a matter of minutes. Loss of human life would be virtually instantaneous and measured in the millions. Of course the states of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and southern region of Georgia—a state with no Gulf coastline—would also experience tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of casualties.


Very, very spooky.

Let's hope this is just fear mongering.

Somebody really wants us to move. Can you say "Agenda 21"?

Checklist for survival:

In Case of Tsunami:
snickers in ziplocks

In case of Quarrantine:
Extra water
happy stash

In case of Fema camp evacuation:
Deck of cards
monopoly board

If I have left out anything...please advise.

I had a dream months ago where me and some friends were just hanging out at some house I didn't recognize.

We heard huge explosions like thunder and went outside to see what it was. Up in the sky coming towards us but still far away - a huge portion of the sky- were these crazy black clouds expanding up, out, and towards us, like the smoke monster in 'Lost' flying super fast, but lots of them and huge. Still far enough away to be kind of scared, but more curious. Think giant black freight trains of smoke barreling through the sky.
There were helicopters and small planes flying away from them as well.

Moments later a gigantic tidal wave could be seen coming towards us, and we all prepared to get hit, and then we were, and then I either woke up or just don't remember the rest.

The part that spooks me is that one of those friends now lives in a gulf town in texas, and I'm planning on joining him there eventually.

If the scenario posed in this thread does take place, all that below-freezing water under immense pressure would be forced into the huge reservoir of oil where it's hundreds of degrees fahrenheit.

Extreme hot + extreme cold = extreme steam

Mix extreme steam with an extreme amount of oil, and you've got extreme, oily steam.

Which is exactly how I interpret what I saw in my dream, and I've had a lot of dreams (especially involving this friend) come true before...

I don't see myself getting down there for at least another six months to a year though, so we should have plenty of time to give the government all the control they want.

SHOCKER!!! THIS JUST IN!!! OBAMA IS TO BLAME FOR THE OIL SPILL!!! know i didn't even look at the above clips, because they have put obamas image on it...this instantly makes it for me BS, thus irrelevant.

wait till the hurricane comes through and lifts up all that oil and blankets the south, and the mid-atlantic. like they ain't seen nothin' yet.

That's something that's been making the rounds, but I don't believe its something most of us should worry about. I can run the math if you want, but the amount of oil necessary to do any significant damage would be utterly ridiculous. It would take just over 100 million gallons of oil to drop only 1/100th of an inch of oil on my home county, which is right at 600 square miles in size. You'd need around 27 billion gallons of oil to coat Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama with 1/100th of an inch.

Some hope I think

.. if this works it will also be able to help keep the sea bed from collapse ... and hold the methane down until the methane does what it normally does (which is make those big, big bubbles you see around the well site!) ...

This came to my FB page, I hope it is an answer!

And this is a great map of the area:

Strange, I was at a group meditation in the centre of Edinburgh last night (the cowgate) and all I kept seeing was a massive surge of sea water crashing past me from left to right. I was at an elevation of hundreds of feet and yet I could have reached out and almost touched this massive wave.

To my right there were tall (ish) buildings but they were half obscured by mist or haze and were then slammed by this very fast wall of water. This mental imagery kept interrupting my meditational efforts to clear my mind and blaze my Ajna chakra so whenever I saw the repeated scene again I would mentally throw up my hands in annoyance and try to refocus but every time I refocused, the disconcerting imagery kept repeating itself.

At the time I was just irritated that I was having a bad session as I do not normally have problems with clearing my thoughts and slipping into the wonders of meditation but last night whenever my thoughts settled and I could feel the song between my ears, could feel the chakra flutter and twist at my forehead - the same vision of a massive wall of water surging kept ruining my efforts.

I can meditate deeply for hours as I wish but last night I gave up after an hour and a half and left the group because of this violent water imagery.

I do not think it means anything and I had just put it down to a bad session but on seeing this thread I thought I should probably mention it just in case because the picture in the op was pretty similar to what I saw (left to right) but without the sunlight?

It is looking so scary. Did it really happen? Let’s hope for the better.
