Can it get worse than this? Yes it can and how! Check out this report by Russian petroleum disaster experts!


SEVENTEEN COUNTRIES WITH OIL CLEANUP TECHNOLOGY HAVE OFFERED HELP WITH OIL LEAK AND US GOVERNMENT HAS TURNED THEM ALL DOWN!

A dire report prepared for President Medvedev by Russia’s Ministry of Natural Resources is warning today that the British Petroleum (BP) oil and gas leak in the Gulf of Mexico is about to become the worst environmental catastrophe in all of human history threatening the entire eastern half of the North American continent with “total destruction”.

Russian scientists are basing their apocalyptic destruction assessment due to BP’s use of millions of gallons of the chemical dispersal agent known as Corexit 9500 which is being pumped directly into the leak of this wellhead over a mile under the Gulf of Mexico waters and designed, this report says, to keep hidden from the American public the full, and tragic, extent of this leak that is now estimated to be over 2.9 million gallons a day.

The dispersal agent Corexit 9500 is a solvent originally developed by Exxon and now manufactured by the Nalco Holding Company of Naperville, Illinois that is four times more toxic than oil (oil is toxic at 11 ppm (parts per million), Corexit 9500 at only 2.61ppm). In a report written by Anita George-Ares and James R. Clark for Exxon Biomedical Sciences, Inc. titled “Acute Aquatic Toxicity of Three Corexit Products: An Overview” Corexit 9500 was found to be one of the most toxic dispersal agents ever developed. Even worse, according to this report, with higher water temperatures, like those now occurring in the Gulf of Mexico, its toxicity grows.


And now for the bombshell...


Even worse, should a Katrina like tropical hurricane form in the Gulf of Mexico while tens of millions of gallons of Corexit 9500 are sitting on, or near, its surface the resulting “toxic rain” falling upon the North American continent could “theoretically” destroy all microbial life to any depth it reaches resulting in an “unimaginable environmental catastrophe” destroying all life forms from the “bottom of the evolutionary chart to the top”.


Amen!

That won't happen. Even if it did get into a worst case scenario like that people would survive. Humanity and nature in general has been through some harsh times. We can survive some toxic rain and pollution. It won't wipe out the entire continent. That's just some blatant fearmongering.

We're down to the wire folks, down to the wire.

And does anyone know if the latest upcoming peak solar activity could have an effect on hurricane activity in the short term?

Mexico is part of North America. Also, Mexico is close to the Gulf of Mexico. Hence the name "Gulf of Mexico".You think they will be entirely unaffected if something like that happened?

Hey there chicken little, can you get off the soap box for a second.

Life in North America (or s. America, Europe, Asia, etc) will NOT be uninhabitable due to the oil spill. Sorry, it won't. It will be a nightmare to clean up, and there will be horrible damage to the local and semilocal ecosystem, but this isn't our first trip to the rodeo. There have been deep water oil spills previously and unfortunately this probably will not be the last one.

I think it is time to take a step back and rationally see what is going on.

Do not misunderstand me, I think BP is a collective group of morons, as is our government for not having a plan in place for such an event before going forward with the drilling.

This article about "a dire report prepared for President Medvedev by Russia’s Ministry of Natural Resources" was written by Sorcha Faal back in May 23 at www.whatdoesitmean.com...

There is no verifiable source for the claims made in this article but it keeps getting posted and linked to different websites. A whole thread on ATS was dedicated to discussion about this writer titled "Sorcha Faal... Internet Hoax Queen Courtesy of David Booth..."
www.abovetopsecret.com...

I certainly hope this is the last time I see this article but it will probably pop up next month sourced from a different website

hahaha... I reae this and inmediately knew there was bound to bound to be 1 person bringing up sorcha faal.... sory OP but that source has less then no credibility down here... even though you'll frequently see articles from that site pop up on ATS...

Sorcha Faal or not... When a Katrina like huricane hits GOM, the scenario written out in OP WILL come to pass... add to that the fact that "they" expect a busy huricane season...

Don't just jump to conclusions. Sorch faal didn't research this.....


The dispersal agent Corexit 9500 is a solvent originally developed by Exxon and now manufactured by the Nalco Holding Company of Naperville, Illinois that is four times more toxic than oil (oil is toxic at 11 ppm (parts per million), Corexit 9500 at only 2.61ppm).

Is the above all nonsense? NO! This is fact - scientific fact.

Is the above all nonsense? According to you all these people are idiots hoaxing all and sundry, right? Faal or no Faal this has been published by CNN. Ah, now you'll say CNN is part of the crappy MSM which has zero credibility and is hoaxing the public too!

Perfect timing....With the new immigration laws being put into place, we cannot go into Mexico, because they will be pissed at us.....But then again, I dont think they would be fair and return the "favor" by letting us in, in the first place.....they sure as heck wouldnt give us anything (benefits, etc)for free

Well, if you aren't starved - then you might be nuked - or die from toxins - of course, it will never happen, forget about it.

The aid was not "free", shameful people that they are.

Only Mexico, offered the U.S. anything for free


At least 22 nations -- including Britain, where BP is based -- have offered oil-collecting skimmers, boom, technical experts and more to help the U.S. cope with the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. But their generosity comes with a price tag

The State Department confirmed that nearly every offer of equipment or expertise from a foreign government since the April 20 oil rig explosion would require the U.S. to reimburse that country.

Only Mexico, with wide swaths of poverty among its population, offered the U.S. anything for free. It said it would give the U.S. government some containment boom. BP separately purchased 13,780 feet of boom and two skimmers from Mexico in early May, according to the State Department.

"We're not disappointed," State Department spokesman Mark Toner said Friday. "We're quite pleased with the international offers of assistance. What we're concerned with right now is getting these types of assistance as they become available, as they are useful to our cleanup operations, getting them into action so they can clean up the Gulf."

The offers include:

The offers include:

Britain, America's closest ally and headquarters to London-based BP, said it would sell chemical dispersants and containment boom for use cleaning up the spill. London's mayor, Boris Johnson, has previously complained about what he called "buck-passing and name-calling" in the U.S. against BP.


Russia, which received $70.5 million in U.S. aid last year and $78 million in 2008, said it could send boom, oil containers and ships if the U.S. paid for them.


China offered containment boom for a price. When a major earthquake struck in northwest China in April, the U.S. quickly gave $100,000 for relief supplies, and after another major earthquake in southwestern China in 2008, the U.S. donated $500,000 through the U.S. embassy in Beijing to the Red Cross to buy and deliver emergency supplies there.

Congressional researchers estimate the U.S. spends roughly $30 million on foreign aid to China each year, including educational exchanges and health programs.



Israel, which receives roughly $3 billion in U.S. military aid and other assistance, also said it would send containment boom, if the U.S. paid for it.


France offered to send chemical dispersants and equipment to clean oil off birds but only for a price.



Kenya, which received more than $24 million in U.S. aid last year and $11 million in 2008 for humanitarian aid, offered to send fire boom but only if the Obama administration paid.


Vietnam offered a ship with oil-collecting sweep arms if the U.S. paid for it. The U.S. spent $102 million in all types of aid to Vietnam in 2008. When Typhoon Ketsana hit that country last fall, affecting 3 million people, the U.S. spent $100,000 on relief operations.


Romania made a "general offer of support" but asked the U.S. government for payment. After heavy rains sent in July 2008 sent four major rivers over their banks and killed five people, the U.S. gave $50,000 for emergency supplies.


Croatia offered to send technical experts and plans, for a price. The U.S. gave Croatia $50,000 to buy local firefighting equipment in 2007 when more than 800 wildfires broke out during an unusually hot and dry summer.
