Censored Gulf news: Water test sample explodes




One of the water test samples from multiple beaches in and around the Gulf region where children were playing and swimming, when mixed with organic solvent used to separate the oil from the water, exploded.

The News 5 investigation team collected the samples, finding that the one from Dolphin Island Marina explosive according to Intel Hub's Alex Thomas.

"The obvious reason for such an explosion is methane gas. As we know, methane is highly flammable and can explode upon contact with air," states Thomas.

"The other likely candidate is the neurotoxin known as Corexit 9500, which has continued to be openly sprayed through aerial operations as well as directly at the source.

Thomas believes this could be a serious wake-up call for everyone thinking that this catastrophe is behind us.


WOW
Just This morning the newspaper showed a couple of children sitting in shallow waters playing in the Gulf of Mexico - looking at the camera as it took thier picture with a look saying "Why are you photographing me?" - these kids were allowed to go into the water after the beach was cleared of tar balls...

I guess those kids should be glad that picture was taken, because they're probably in the hospital right now dying from hemoraging caused by COREXIT 9500...

I do not downplay the gulf disaster, however, I do not believe this report. Why in the hell would one glass of water explode out of the millions of gallons in the ocean? I am gonna call my cousin and if she will go down to the beach and get a sample and see what happens. Be back with the results.

I cannot view the video from this computer, however I never take what I see in a video for what it is, because effects can be made easily, and because how do you know that you are seeing a glass of water from the gulf in the first place??????

OK, Read carefully, do I have your attention?
First it's Dauphin Island named after the Dauphine of France you may need a history book to confirm this.
Second. It was one beaker that exploded from a sample taken right beside a boom near Dauphin Island Marina.
Third. I know the guy that did the test, like personally. We should all know such good people.
Any questions?
OK, now the BIG question is the mixture of Corexit and oil and sea water. People are working on it. Some test take time. I can tell you this the water does not look right. The waves are to flat, the surface ripples washes out, instead of curving. Most noticable to me on inland waters but I can see the difference. Could be it is weighted down.
Belive me I want to know the results as much as anyone.
This is my home.

lol... tell it to Channel 5, I'm just transferring text... I'm actually quite aware the locale's name is pronounced 'Dauphin' - I would have corrected it if I saw it was misspelled lol.

pertaining to the beaker blow out, My guess is chemical reaction over flammable flare up. Some chemical reactions can increase pressures and volumns significantly, and instantaniously, which is what looks to be the cause of the explosive test.

Hi Megiddodiddo, Thankyou for finding this.
It seems a little strange in the least that they lost the remainder of thier test sample as there was a jar nearly full, And an pre determined measured amount of sample needed to determine PPM Contamination of sea water. I would HAVE thought 100ml sample would be the norm for this test, Jar would hold up to 250ml.
Very suss.

Kind Regards, robbo

I found this statement on another news post:


When asked about the exploding water sample, Hugh Kaufman had this to say:

But what’s funny about that is, on Thursday, the administrator of EPA, in answering Senator Mikulski’s question at the hearing that you played the clip on, said that EPA has tested the water up to three miles out and onshore and found that it’s safe. And then, a few days later, the television station in Pensacola and in Mobile document with their own limited testing that that statement was false, misleading and/or inaccurate by the administrator, under oath, to Senator Mikulski in that hearing.


things are starting to heat up quickly - pun intended! =

There is no way these beaches are safe until there are many
Inderpendant tests done and are publicly published and declared safe.

I know that If my beach was about to blow up I'd tell someone about it!

Probably in the space right underneath this comment!

Get it straight....There is no safe way to disperse crude oil. Crude is toxic to humans in any form including its refined form as gasolene.
They are not spraying dishsoap onto this mess. The oil and the gasses released are toxic to humans (ie Dangerous and Deadly).
The oil industry knows this very well just read the warning on the pump the next time you are fueling your car. The sticker will say "Warning causes cancer". So when they say everything is fine it is bull and they know it. Twenty years from now BP will be a faint memory and people will still be dying from this spill. Remember when DOW killed all those people in india go ask them how they got compensated. Every petro engineer is shaking their head and saying a little prayer about this. To the naysayers all I have to say is downplaying this is a sin against your fellow man. The 11th commandment should read "Thou shalt not poison 30 million people to make money"

Sorry I left something out..
Who do think is going to pay for this mess. BP does not have a farm with money trees on it. You pay at the pump and the poor people with their savings invested in the company will pay. The government is full of crap BP gets its money from you. So when the White House says they are going to make them pay "The Them Is You"

Its possible this could happen, I don't really know but I do know the image provided has been on the net for a couple of years. I liked the image from a photographic point of view and it has been in my documents for that long.

You say that as if we dont have the free will to not buy from BP, or that those 'poor people with their savings invested in the company' (sorry, but i know no 'poor people' with money invested in a mulitnational corporation) were under the impression BP was actually a company that manufactures smiley-faces.

Sorry, no sympathy from me.

Thats a bald face lie, prove it!

This was a news 5 video segment from last week it has been all over the net like wildfire and on this very forum discussed fully.

It is rediculous that you insist on downplaying and undermining the information brought forward!

Shame on you, like I said prove it.

and here you are again falsely claiming a post of mine was defending BP, when in all reality it was doing NOTHING of the sort. (feel free to read the response he is referring to)

Sort of like you think this sub-forum is your own personal club and anyone who doesnt agree with your OPINIONS 100% is a "BP shill".

sorry for you.
