If I understand this correctly (see article) I can sum it up and say "the higher the radiation level, the better the oil".
BP obviously drilled into something big, something that continues to gush out in full force even after 70 plus days.
This can only mean that that the oil is coming from some continuous source deep within the Earth's surface.
One professor at Cornell University believes that oil is actually a renewable, primordial syrup continually manufactured by the Earth under ultrahot conditions and tremendous pressures.

A "primordial syrup"?
It's almost as if the Earth is bleeding and its blood is toxic to humans?

Maybe it really is.




Urgent – Radioactive Oil From BP Blowout!

This is going to blow the roof off of the scope of this disaster. This is why people are getting sick. This is why they are using

Corexit in such quantities, this is why there aren’t many ships out there. The radioactivity is beyond safe levels.
....
Helium is a naturally occurring gas formed in oil reserves. So common that heliumdetectors have been used to discover oil reserves.

Helium is an inert gas known to be a by-product from the radiological decay of uranium and thorium. Uranium and Thorium are known to be in great quantities at greater depths.
Yes, radioactive elements occur naturally and can be found and detected in trace amounts in shallow oil reserves. Oil reserves that do not produce large amounts of methane also lack uranium and thorium. The presence of methane is proportional to the presence of uranium and thorium, both radioactive elements. Yes, you read that correctly! The more methane that is present reflects the amount of Uranium and Thorium in the oil reserve.
....
During the Gulf War the Gulf Syndrome is speculated to be caused by the expulsion of Uranium and Thorium from the wells opened up by

Saddam Hussein. Similar symptoms of illness are now beginning to occur at the Deepwater Horizon spill site and the resulting oil slick
.It is my conclusion, the oil from Deepwater is Deep Earth oil with elevated levels of radioactivity from Uranium and Thorium that hasn’t had the time to decay.

It's the Uranium, stupid!
This might explain why all the people involved in the Exxon Valdez oil clean up are now dead.
Another thing to point regarding the Exxon Valdez:

The Exxon Valdez oil spill in 1989 touched off a wave of suicides, domestic violence, bankruptcies and alcoholism in Alaska that created an entire literature on the unique and confounding psychology of technological disaster.


And now, as the slick looms larger, mental health workers fear a rising tide of despair.

So many dots to connect, so little time...



Mysterious illness plagues Gulf oil disaster workers
SAN ANTONIO -- For weeks now, local hospitals have tracked patients with suspicious symptoms coming in from the gulf coast. Doctors are having trouble distinguishing it from the flu.

"What makes it challenging is that patients show up with non-specific symptoms. Headaches, fatigue, problems with memory and concentration, upset stomach," lists Dr. Claudia Miller at UT Health Science Center.

The illness is called "TILT," or Toxicant-Induced Loss of Tolerance. Patients lose tolerance to household products, medication, or even food after being exposed to chemicals, like burning oil, toxic fumes, or dispersants from the spill.

Notice the similarities in the symptoms described above to the symptoms desbribed below.



Gulf War Syndrome is the name given to a variable combination of psychological and physical complaints experienced by veterans of the Persian Gulf War.

It began in Indiana in early 1992, when soldiers in two reserve units that had fought in the Persian Gulf war began to suffer a puzzling array of symptoms. Some became unusually fatigued, and others said that their joints ached.

They experienced headaches, rashes and hair loss, and their memories occasionally failed them. In some cases, the symptoms were severe enough to require hospitalization.

Shortly after the war ended, military doctors discovered that several sick soldiers were infected with Leishmania tropica, a parasite transmitted through the bites of infected sandflies.
... But most of the ailing soldiers tested negative for the parasite.

A second theory holds that Gulf War veterans were poisoned by their own high-tech weapons. Some U.S. tanks and artillery shells were coated with depleted uranium (DU), a byproduct of the material that fuels nuclear weapons.

Other theories have included exposure to chemical or biological weapons, pesticides, nerve gas, vaccines, medications and exposure to smoke from burning oil wells.

Gulf War Syndrome - HealthScout



There's the "U" word again.
During the Gulf War, tanks and artillery shells were coated with Uranium.
Some soldiers were exposed to smoke from Saddam's burning oil wells and in hindsight it appears they were victims of both friendly and enemy fire.

The more this continues, the more I'm convinced this is only the beginning because this is looking extremely serious.

If Obama has declared war on the BP oil spill, then it's obvious that we now have another President that was ill prepared for battle.

Scary stuff. Radiation's been mentioned often in the myriad of topics here on the Deepwater Disaster, but never in any depth.

I haven't read through all of this yet, but the thing I'm going to be looking for is, has anyone actually measured it?

In addition, just some random thoughts...this could be as good a reason as any to be keeping people away. Another thought is that BP and the government are "working on two possible options should the relief wells fail." One of these options could still well be a nuke, which would go far to mask any natural and high levels that might exist.

is there any way to test for this kind of thing?

anyone know where you can buy a cheap, yet reliable, radioactivity meter?




This is why they are using

Corexit in such quantities


is this implying that they are ttrying to use corexit to break down the crude, in order to speed up the natural break down process of it's radioactivity?

Don't buy one of those old geiger counters that civil defense had in the 60s, they don't work well anymore. I doubt this oil is very radioactive.

Yes there are many places where they are readily available and easy to access. Here is a link to an older military issue unit that is quite economical compared to a newer model. www.sportsmansguide.com...


Back on topic. If this whole situation proves to be true, they will go to great lengths to cover their tracks if it's even possible.

That is an old unit made many decades ago. They have components that fail over the years and give the wrong reading. I used them on a military base. I found a highly radioactive building, the radio station.

Toxic, flammable and radioactive... way to unleash a weapons grade disaster boys! Seems as though the news just keeps getting better (not!) and then we have people claiming chemistry knowledge saying the gas danger is overblown!
At this point you could not keep me in the gulf area. I have already abandoned my dream home in the PNW woods due to toxic spray used by forestry as well as lost many former neighbors and friends over it. All the while being assured it is safe as rain. That is a whole nuther post though but it is relevant as when it became too toxic where I lived we left and took the loss. It is closing in on time to make the same decision down south.

That isn't true...

Bullets, shells and missiles tipped with radioactive depleted uranium made every weapon in Iraq's arsenal obsolete. The higher weight of DU shells allows American tanks to shoot twice as far, giving them a range of two miles.

During the [1991] Desert Storm terror campaign at least 944,000 rounds of DU ammo were fired from American A-10 Warthogs all over Iraq and Kuwait. The A-10 is an aircraft built around a 30mm, 7-barrel gattling gun that can spew 3900 rounds per minute.

When a depleted uranium tipped shell strikes a tank or armored personnel carrier it easily penetrates the armor and burns the crew alive. The impact also vaporizes the depleted uranium, creating an aerosol of radioactive heavy-metal particles which can spread as far as 190 miles on the wind

gieger reading from sample taken from beach



it appears to be a little radioactive.

keep in mind this is a sample thats already made it to the beach. A sample taken from the actual leak site might read more radioactive.

Can we get a REAL news source please? I cant take some random website ive never heard of and believe it. Thats like taking everything on Alex Jones website and believing it without looking at a real news source

If you are speaking of the "old" yellow Civil Defense units, you are mistaken. They work excellent if calibrated and they can be sent to an outfit that does those calibrations.

Well, although I understand your request, understand that right now, it's a little hard to get a REAL news source, since Obama has now made it a felony (plus a fine of $40,000) for any reporter or photographer to go within 65 feet of any ship or clean-up area. Sort of ties the reporter's hands.

Of course, then again, investigative journalism has pretty much been non-existent these last 20 yeras....so I can't blame it all on Obama saying "screw you" to the 1st amendment.

Precisely. If you want good calibrated units, go HERE. I have one, and have used them frequently in the past. I'd be interested to see if this oil was radioactive, and if so, how many rads it gave off. If you're going to spend the money to buy one, you'd be wise to ensure that it's been calibrated.

If a sample of that oil can make one of those civil defense Geiger meters move at all then it is pretty radioactive. They will not move at all for a common piece of granite which has natural uranium in it. It takes a radioactive source such as Cobalt 60 or other gamma emitters to get it to move at all.

Nice thread, this is something we need to verify. I won't dispute whether there is radiation in this oil or not. If it is true that oil is extremely abundant, the oil companies have some explaining to do regarding their claims of scarcity and their price gouging. I'm sure someone out there can get their hands on some of this stuff and test it (unless BP has made that illegal too), Regarding gulf war syndrome, there have been strong (and convincing) links made between the use of depleted uranium shells in the first gulf war and gulf war syndrome. Here's to hoping it isn't radioactive.

It's quite simple...

Oil is the Earth's Blood...

Human's are misquitos...

Like the human body, the earth's body creates it's own white blood cell that mix in with the regular blood to fight off infectious foreign materials /infections...

Humans are an infection... Parasitic to say the least. Nothing wrong with the statement... every microscopic-to-large form of life has the right to fight for it's own survival...

But sooner or later.. Earth is gonna use the bug spray.

Honestly, I think AJ deserves more credit than he gets. He prevents chaos in a way by observing possibilities.

But yeah, if the oil was radioactive, we'd have much more massive evacs, making it international news immediately.

Wow.. Just wow... I really don't know what to think any more... To me it seems as if life on earth is out of control and at the height of unpredictability with nearly every 'major' nation at each others throats on the brink of war...

Then we have thieving corporations plundering the earths resources which should always be a concern to everyone... Unfortunately it takes death and destruction to open all of our eyes to the insatiable greed of big corporations and their seemingly unstoppable power...Our illnesses are meaningless to the corporations of the world be they governmental or otherwise... Scary stuff. (In my humble opinion)

BIG S&F OP!
