Some place all of the blame on the oil companies,some have the presence of mind to realize that they themselves are to blame.

None will protest in a meaningful way,because they are not willing to stop using the products these companies provide.

No worry,the oil won't get into your olympic size swimming pool in your back yard along the beach,as long as your front yard faces the beach.........

Go ahead,boycott your way of life now,before you have no say in any matter at all.....

Wait!,you already don't,the evidence of it is everywhere.

Just another thing to complain about in a place where it means nothing.

Feel Better?,I don't.

Yes it's a terrible accident, but in all honesty posting pics of oiled up animals doesn't really achieve anything. Fix the damn thing first and then worry about the effects on wildlife. And no, we have not destroyed the oceans or killing the planet, it's a terrible accident that doesn't need such overblown silly things said to show how terrible it is.

Good post Jeanne, and to add to it - if somebody doesn't solve this, the Gulf may not be the only ocean affected.

The body count as of April 20-Friday.

It just keeps gushing out

Foolish morons.

You seem to forget that we dont know if we are at the beginning, middle or end of this massive leak, or even if there will be an end. Seems the best, most positive outlook would have the gusher stopped sometime in November.

This is still June.

See what the oceans look if this thing is still pooring out oil in December, or even some time next year.

The people on here who cant understand the severity of this situation are either horribly short sighted, living in willfull ignorance or just plain simple minded.

Fine, blame BP for the oil that you and I use. Yes, we do have reason for outrage at all the damage that this is doing to the Gulf. It may even ruin it for a generation or 2 but mother earth will heal itself. The birds and the dolphins and the turtles will one day swim freely in those same waters that are churning brown deadzones.
The guilt is hardly BP's alone, a lack of government oversight and our wanton use of oil all combined to make this happen. There is enough blame to go around to all of us.
It WILL HEAL. Perhaps not in our lifetimes, but it will be made whole again. Nature is renewal.

It is easy to get angry at such scenarios. Yes Halliburton and BP caused a catastrophe on our soil. Yes, I believe that they planned it out to a T. Yes, Halliburton was also responsible for the oil spill in Australia. However, we cannot give over to anger and hatred, because these are the very tools used by those who have done this despicable act against us.

There are many that are talking about going to war against our government. This is all part of the plan. Don't raise your fists or guns in anger, otherwise you join them in their quest to make us reactionary. It will give them every excuse to declare martial law and turn our country into the same military state that they have done to so many other countries. They will have cameras on every street corner. There will be checkpoints, and you will need passes in order to go from one place to another. Do not feed this machine, because this is the very thing that it needs to push its goals in place.

Send love and peace to the Gulf and to the world. Send love and peace to our "ruling elite." One act of violence will only insure that another will occur.

Namaste and love

I joined your face book page

the saddest part of this whole thing is oil can be drilled and handled safely down the whole supply chain

this is eco terrorism which is stock in trade for these multinational unaccountable companies , this is done to make you and me controllable and to show that have the power to hurt you and your world if you so much as squeak when they raise prices and lower your wages

This is a video showing an apparent collapse of the Gulf sea floor followed by several plumes shooting up.

1:10 - The camera suddenly drops and begins sliding backwards. You can see that the floor has buckled and oil starts seeping out of the cracks. After this point, you can see sediment floating around everywhere.

6:00 - Just before and up to this point, there is sediment flying upwards and all over the place and at around 6:10, a plume shoots straight up with force.

7:15 - Another plume shoots up.

7:35 - An explosion followed by another plume.

8:15 - Another explosion and another plume, but this one is much bigger and ends up engulfing the camera reducing visibility to zero. Sediment is flying everywhere. At 9:10, another explosion and a "crashing wave" of oil and sediment floods the camera.

9:39 - The view finally clears, but at 9:55, another plume rushes the camera just before the video stops.

I agree that violence, however justified it may be, would serve little purpose other than to give them the go ahead to crush the rights we have left.

It is just difficult to sit still and not feel anger and hostility when you see what massive damage is being inflicted upon our natural environment.

This is the worst part of the entire ordeal, at least for me, is having to sit still and watch and feel helpless.

Yes, well, I dont expect JOURNALISTS to fix an oil well. I DO expect them to be journalists, tho.

maybe BP can work on the well and the media can, you know, be the media?

The video was uploaded to Youtube about a month ago, but I can't imagine that the situation down there has improved much. There is an ever increasing void under the sea floor. I just hope we don't have a large collapse down there because that would mean trouble.

I'm not quite seeing what you are. Yes, i see oil coming from the sea floor, as has been reported many times, and as the sea floor does all over the gulf, naturally. I dont see evidence of the "Buckle" you are referring to.

Also, the debris you are seeing all over might be from the ROV's propellers or jets or whatever, yes?

posted on Jun, 27 2010 @ 02:59 PM
Well, the camera drops suddenly. There is nothing on the floor there that would suggest it just went over a bump. The entire floor is slanted in the direction the camera is sliding. It's obvious that the camera drops suddenly without warning just by looking at the POV. If nothing else was going on, then yeah, maybe it was the propellers. Oil may seep from the floor naturally, but this is not under natural circumstances.

well showing pics of oiled animals does do something

it shows the CONSEQUENCES it shows whats IS happening right now as would daily interviews with affected locals pictures of the beaches in short information

and what actions BP and the Coastguard are taking ,oh wait they aren't!

I try to shut it out, because it is becoming emotionally overwhelming, but I can't, all I can do is pray.

Posting pics of oiled up animals doesn't really achieve anything? It achieves awareness and shock and opens more eyes to greedy corporations and their lack of conscience.

We have not destroyed the oceans or are killing the planet? It is later than you think. We have done much in progressing toward destruction of life on this planet and it only gets worse as the years pass.

These are NOT overblown silly things. How about you move to the gulf and let me know what you think.

Money, Power and the greed for both leads to a short sighted futile pursuit of profits today.......while damning the consequences of'd think these people have no children at the rate they will leave the earth for them....

The elite will have to Look God in the face someday and answer what level of stewartship they have been responsible for with his creation...........

I'm reading that our government let BP slide on many drilling licenses and EPA requirements in an effort to tap into this deep well source so that the US could attack Iran and if the straits of Hormez were closed that we could continue our energy needs through these finds in the gulf......

The evils of our time................are only heighted by the knowledge and technology to create such devestation..........

When you chop down the last tree and poison the last stream only then will you learn that you can't eat your money - Native American saying to the industrialists...

Yup BPs oil leak on Americas doorstep, with American help. Couldn't have happened without good old American incompetence/greed. The mighty $ above all else.

What about the dead CHILDREN in Iraq, Afghanistan and Americas next 'project' Iran.

Are these innocents worth less than birds, fish and sundry sea fauna?
Are YOURchildren worth less?

Seems when its on Americas doorstep the rest of the World can go get f*****.

Preparing for incomming flames.
Lol couldn't have the flames without oil. Is that ironic? I'll let the Americans decide.

I say screw the Polar bears, Whales, seals etc. WON'T SOMEBODY THINK OF THE CHILDREN?
