and let me quote this guy :
Sorry, but if you take the time to actually read the reports out of UGA, Woods Hole, and other pretty reliable sources, perhaps you'd understand the various problems.

This isn't an oil spill.

It is a gas/oil LEAK pumping very bad stuff very deep down faster than either natural or human processes can deal with.

I daresay no one wants what is occurring. Some few of us dug deeper earlier and gave legitimate warnings a long time ago, for which we were called fear-mongers. Recognizing reality isn't fear-mongering. This situation is extremely dangerous, will be with us for a very long time, and could grow infinitely worse over time.

It is surely no time to panic, which is what those who keep trying to deny reality are actually doing. It's not OK, but take a deep breath, and accept it.

Then perhaps we can move on to somehow dealing with it. Some pretty massive changes are required and will be coming soon. The only question is whether we will be driven by awful, immediate, unthought-out necessity, or we are at least somewhat in control and can nimbly step out of foreseen dangers...


enough said ?? i hope so..

or this
another quote maybe:Warning To Gulf Volunteers: Almost Every Cleanup Worker From The 1989 Exxon Valdez Disaster Is Now Dead vid about the exxon www.youtube.com...

This should be a HUGE heads-up for anyone who wants to volunteer to clean up. Maybe this is why the government is making everyone wear restricting suits, and refusing to let anyone in that area... Either way, it's going to affect most of us Americans one way or another.
More frome the article:

In fact, the expert that CNN had on said that the life expectancy for those who worked to clean up the Exxon Valdez oil spill is only about 51 years. Considering the fact that the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is now many times worse than the Exxon Valdez disaster, are you sure you want to volunteer to be on a cleanup crew down there? After all, the American Dream is not to make big bucks for a few months helping BP clean up their mess and then drop dead 20 or 30 years early.

can keep this up all day


also a queto from a foe of mine: In part those members fears are being driven by people like you, who are spreading fear by attempting to draw a corelation between normal evacuations for any hurricane and the oil spill.

The intensity of a storm can change many times while it is out over water, it can grow it can weaken, it could be a category 2 or even higher according to forecasts when it makes landfall.

There is no way to tell until they make landfall.

The lowest lying coastal areas because they are prone to flooding are typically mandatory evactuation zones in any Category 1 or higher storm.

I have lived through dozens of hurricanes, and while no, that's not as impressive as having watched a show on the 'discovery' channel about them, I sure do have a lot of experience with them!

So once again, I read the CNN piece when it came out last night, when Alex was upgraded to a Hurricane, and saw the 10% figure.

Now so you better understand two other things in regards to the oil spill and evacuations for it, those who are theorizing about them, believe it will be 200 miles within the well that will become a dead zone from the oil, chemicals and rain.

The area of Texas being evacuated for the Hurricane is well outside of that 200 mile radius. So no that is not the logical place to start evacuations for the oil well, based on proximity to the chemicals and rain.

Two the fact that 10 different people on ATS are frightened and asking if they should evacuate, means absolutely nothing as their are hundreds of people on ATS who fear for their lives everytime some report of Nibiru/Planet X drawing near surfaces, or some June 21st Black Jack Nuclear False Flag thread appears.

In part those members fears are being driven by people like you, who are spreading fear by attempting to draw a corelation between normal evacuations for any hurricane and the oil spill.

There are few credible sources for evactuation theories at the moment, most of them are trying to prove religious theories, or drive traffic to websites like ATS that make revenue off of advertising, while others are authors trying to hype their books.

Yes, it is possible that the whole area might have to be evacuated at some point because of the oil spill, no, these evacuations don't have anything to do with that, and no, it is really to early to tell if evacuations will be required because of the oil.

The last leak in the Gulf of Mexico before this one occured in 1979 and it took nine months for the leadk to be stopped.

All the same fears were talked about then, all the same dire predictions, yet none of them panned out then, no, that doesn't mean that it will work out as well this time, but it is reason for gaurded hope that people are not going to die in mass,or have to abandon their homes.

This is real for us people who live in the effected areas, so please, keep that in mind.

THanks.

If anyone thinks this “spill” is no big deal and if you think(a word which I use loosely) you can go to the beach and just walk around blobs of oil and be fine……you’re the dumbest person in any room you walk into. Does anyone realize that 2 million + gallons of chemical dispersant(a day) that is MADE to float on the top of water to drive oil under? That means all water which evaporation for rain is full of dispersant. It is all over you and your kids and the fumes are engineered out of it to disguise it from the masses to stop hysteria that would cause everyone to see the truth.
When you walk outside and it raining, open your mouth and take a taste. I dare you.

Hurricane Alex has made landfall 100 miles south of the Mexican/Texas border as a category 2 storm with average winds of 105 miles an hour, and sustained gusts up to 120.

A category 2 has the potential to cause significant wind damage, as well as flooding.

Brownsville Texas has reported 6 tornadoes touching down spun off by the outer bands of the storm, and flooding of up to 2 feet of water.

These are precisely the kinds of things that do cause some people to evacuate out of the storms path!


Meanwhile, authorities in South Padre Island closed the Queen Isabella Memorial Bridge -- which crosses to the popular vacation spot -- as a precaution ahead of the approaching Alex.


Causeways are often closed during a storm, effectively closing off traffic between barrier islands and the mainland.

This is another reason why such places are mandatory evacuation zones that cause some people to evacuate.

So there you have it!

For cripes sake there is not going to be any evacuation.

It's one thing for people to come on here and talk about aliens and how Planet X is going to shake and bake this planet in 2012.

It's another thing entirely to start scaring people with evacuations alerts when we are actually in crisis.

Knock it the hell off. Starting a BS panic is just as bad as the oil itself.

I live in Florida and there is not even a whimper of any type of evacuation.

Is the air quality bad, you bet. Could it get worse, of course it can but the State and Federal Authorities will notify everyone if and when that happens.

Until then, knock it the hell off. Some people may actually believe your garbage and do themselves real harm.

Thank you for sharing that from the scenes report, I appreciate it. I am very scared of what this oil spill could mean and I live miles and miles away in KY!!

Pat Ahumada, the mayor of Brownsville, said the city was expecting to distribute 60,000 sandbags and provide shelter for roughly 2,000 families. Utility crews were on standby to handle outages. At the same time, the state government provided 90 buses in case an evacuation is needed.

"I expect about 10 percent of residents to evacuate voluntarily, which already started yesterday," Ahumada said Tuesday. "I see a steady flow of people going out, but no bottlenecks -- which is good.

"We're not taking it lightly," he said. "We're ready for a worst-case scenario."



CNN.COM

So here is the CNN source for the 10% figure you based your CNN as a source on, and clearly it's 10% of Brownsville, evacuating for the Hurricane.

Obviously the OP has jumped the gun here, but I noticed you mentioned that you live in the area proto, just curious as to the mood down there of regular folk. Obviously BP is on the shiz list, but what are people saying there about the possibilty of an evacuation? Is it even something people are talking about?

No my friend, no one is seriously talking about an evacuation here. In fact there has been no significant talk among people, even though I have floated it as a possibility to others.

So far nothing has washed up on East Coast Beaches and the water, air and other related things seem fine.

There is no unusual rash of sicknesses or respitory problems being reported, and neither the government of Florida or Miami-Dade County has even sugested evacuations as a remote possibility.

Personally I don't see the Government evacuating people until they start dropping dead by the scores and chances are the real long term health impacts will occur if they do occur well after the well has been capped and the beaches and affected areas cleaned, and it will likely mimick Gulf War syndrome.

In fact I am so suspicious of the Powers that Be, I would not put it past them to introduce another unrelated pathogen into the water or the air, to kill people or cause profit making health problems and then blame it on the the oil years down the road.

Once the well is capped, and the 20 Billion fund the government shook out of BP has been spent on weapons for Middle East Wars, and to give to Israel, Columbia and Mexico, BP will litigate every last person until they all die waiting on appeal.

Big Oil and Big Government, are bound to hook up with Big Pharma to milk this one for everything it is worth!

Seems to happen alot with the Examiner, there was another link on ATS a while back about the spill, when it came back online the title had been changed and a couple edits added. Did you happen to get a copy of the original GonzoPoet?

Here's the link:

When urls are long like that, ATS breaks. The solution is to put it in a "url" tag, with a space at the end of the title, like this:
