Now maybe this video is a lie, maybe a car is leaking massive amounts of oil in the area... but since the science back up what is happening in gulf and it's propagation through rain... it's likely true.


Scary as hell. And it's only going to get worse with the hurricanes coming down the pipe.

Say bye bye to crops. Say bye bye to water ponds... This is literally turning the south into a toxic wasteland slowly but surely.

But of course it's not as bad as the thousands of tons of DU we dropped in Iraq and Afghanistan.

So this is... in a way...karma.

EDIT: As Chaos Lord said, oil DOES evaporates.
MMS report

"Evaporation is the most important change that most oil spills undergo. In a few days light crude can evaporate up to 75% of the starting oil mass and medium crudes up to 40%. Heavy or residual oils may only evaporate to the extent of 10% in the first few days following a spill."

Interesting video but I would like more background info about time and location of the "oil rain". Being I live on the Gulf Coast I have asked the question to many people if "oil rain" is a possibility. So far no one has told me for sure that it isn't although most think it's not possible. Any members who are educated in meteorology (a degree) that can answer the question I would like to know. I know hurricanes pick up energy and moisture from the Gulf as they build but I am not sure if the oil it too heavy to evaporate into the atmosphere? Can anyone answer this question for me please.

And I will add this! Some have seen it some haven't!!

Yes oil does evaporate!! I added links a few posts down on the subject!!

This reminds me of MSM showing footage from the Gulf. They never zoom out and give you the entire picture.
Maybe there's a vehicle accident on that road.


@CaptSplatter - I'm pretty sure if the oil breaks down in the water enough it can evaporate.

It doesn't take a large amount of oil to create the oily slick that we see.

Plus there is no context to this video, they show one drain at the side of the road, for all we know this could be the first rain there for sometime and has washed all of the oil and grease that has built up since the last downpour off the roads and into the drain.

It's not the oil you should worry about.
It's the corexit, if that gets picked up and rains then say goodbye to lifeforms from the microbe upwards.
No microbes, no insects, no crops etc etc.
Southern USA will become a dead zone.

I have heard about this as well in the past few days. At first to be honest I had no idea it was so close to the coast. When I first saw a video about it, it was described as some sort of acid rain. With further information coming out in the past two days it becomes something to be concerned about if nothing else for the farmers in that area that need these crops. This will take some further investigation to figure out if it is oil related. If it is oil related then a horrible situation is now an apocalyptic type event.

I am pretty sure, and feel free to correct me if I am wrong here, but when water evaporates it leaves all its contaminates behind so it cannot be oil coming from the rain. Distilling water is basically the same process as natural evaporation, and its used to purify water to nearly perfect levels.

This is actually due to a chem plant explosion in tennesee... Not the rains... Though I have no idea about the op

From what i have read crude oil does not evaporate so "oil rain" is not possible.....as far as the other chemicals, i'm not too sure about them

So, this video is probably not from oil rain

The BP oil molecular structure has been changed or altered due to Corexit....

Could Corexit (toxic in it's self of course) dispersant change the oil so it bonds to water molecules easily or evenly?

Remember COREXIT that's the skeleton key to this spill....

If oil molecular structure is changed could it possibly now evaporate with water?

I suppose it's not much different that the fact we don't have salt water raining down all the time, so I would venture, no, probably no oil rain.

A little research and the answer is yes oil does evaporate!!

A few link and there is much more info on the subject out there.

a video of water run off in a trailer park street.

Seems like someone did a home oil change & made as mess that the water rinsed off.

Here in the Greater New Orleans area, we have had rain every afternoon this week & I've seen nothing like that at all, even though I live on a newly repaved concrete street amidst condos & apt complexes.

Nothing like that here+

Hopefully someone at University will analyze what is killing these plants and
we will soon have an answer. I don't want to point the finger at oil
just yet as there are other reasonable causes, such as fungi, that could be
the culprit, but the timing and location is a tad suspicious.

I'm no chemist, but but it seems plausible that Corexit, or the resulting
dispersed oil, could emanate fumes that could concentrate in the atmosphere
and be carried down by rain. The sheer magnitude of the oil slick itself
leads me to believe this is possible.

In the first video, as another poster stated, it is not unlikely (and I have seen
this myself) that what the videographer is witnessing is nothing more than
residual oil and other contaminants being washed off the road...time will
tell.

One last thing, waterspouts have been known to carry frogs, small fish, etc.
into the atmosphere and then later drop them as rain. It's rare, but it
happens. With hurricane season approaching, even though a hurricane
is not a waterspout, I hope the oil stays put on terra firma.

Your logic does not account for the concept that the sun can vaporize oil and turn it
into its gaseous state, which is then free to enter the atmosphere, mix with condensed water vapor, as the accent will likely create molecular attraction between the two and finally, fall to the Earth in the form of toxic precipitation.

You guys wait...

the amount of illness that will be created by this benzene soup, will have the south
begging for official government action/intrusion into the realm of "healthcare".
Whole fricking cities of millions with crippling toxemia...

tens of millions of people


its like god himself is setting up a multi teared example for all to see, from jobs to bones, the southern construct will be assaulted by mother nature.

we did

DRILL BABY DRILL!

and many we die baby die, slowly but surely


save a penny for your health!

God help you, may altruism be embraced now that greed has been feed, may we recognize that humanity is more than profit... I hope so

for those of you that have not a clue about raining oil in the first gulf war i seen first hand what heavy amounts of oil can do! for starters oil will rain from the sky and make puddles around 1-2 inches! i have been waiting patiently for this to happen as seeing this first hand and knowing the ineviteable is some what funny to the posters that just cannot beleive this is happening. the funny thing is give this mess another few months it will be raining up north for all of you disbelievers to see first hand in your back yard. this is going to go down in the history books boys and girls, just wait and see

Wow..this seems surreal. Yeah the chemical soup is worrisome. Who knows what the Corexit is doing mixing with the crude oil, not to mention mixing with any pollution already in the air and any chemicals like pesticides and fertilizers in the area.

Here's a link to a page with an oil-spill tracking map that uses Google Earth and allows you to type in city names. I typed in River Ridge, LA for the location of the video. Hope that helps.
