yeah it's a wrap all right. Wrapped up in a neat river on the ocean floor waiting for the current to take it to some island or different country somewhere else. Whatever happened to those microbs that ate oil anyways and how come they are not putting that in the ocean? hmmmm.

BP can't be fined X amount of dollars per barrel if they can't find the oil. Is that why the dispersants were authorised. What the hell...


The 'barrels of oil' of oil they will/may be fined for is (if anything) based on estimated output, not what they find after the fact. No one is measuring the amount collected after the fatc for those purposes.

Also, corexitt doesnt merely 'sink' oil. it helps it break down. and in fact it doesnt sink to the bottom as much as it sits at a medium density, floating in the water.

if people realized just how much toxic crap they put directly into the environment every year, they might have a little better perspective n their 'ZOMG! we're all gonna die! posts.

Yes, the Gulf will be dealing with the negative aspects of this spill for decades to come. No, this is not the thing that destroys the world. If this was enough to destroy the world, it woulda ended years ago.

Every read the label on any of the products you put in your automobile? Just as bad as corexitt.

A wrap huh? Wonder if this guy is on the payroll? Hell, I wonder if he has even been down to the gulf, or is he hypothesizing from his leather armchair?
www.businessinsider.com...

Just cause they caught a few fish on-cam doesn't mean that the water is clean, and it certainly doesn't mean those fish are alive today.
Just cause there's a few scientists out there toeing the BP line doesn't mean they are right...For every scientist that minimizes the spill, there are 10 more that are deeply concerned. Especially the ones that are doing water testing in the Gulf!

And really, this isn't about being right or wrong, it's not about gloom and doom either. ATS is supposed to be a forum where data and information is shared and discussed so everyone learns...sometimes some are right, sometimes others are right. That's not the point. It's about getting the information out there, and analyzing, adding and clarifying it, so we all can walk away a bit more knowledgable than before.

And yet, consistently, those who actually QUESTION and DISCUSS (as opposed to providing total agreement) constantly get called 'shills' and other such epithets.

almost as if most who post here only want an echo chamber.

Yep- every things fine, no problems- move along- nothing to see here..
oh- those crazy conspiracy guys just needed a new 9-11 to fuss about.
OK- a special commission will investigate..meanwhile- keep moving..
No danger to the public. dont cancel your vacation..
home values are fine, no need to panic..
the little bit of oil in the gulf will just give you a better tan..

No one has said everything is fine. Some have merely dared to say it perhaps isnt as bad as some clearly want it to be.

But if it makes you feel brave to burn down straw men, feel free.

For a little perspective, the flow of the Gulf Stream reportedly is .6 million cubic meters per second. There are approximately 6.2 bbls per cubic meter. Therefore, in one day the volume of water flowing out of the Gulf is 321.4 billion barrels per day. The blowout was esimates to be under the most hysterical estimates 120,000 bbls/day. Therefore if all the oil volume went into the Gulf stream it represents .00000037 oil per 1 part water or.37 parts per million. For the less scientifically inclined, dispersed in the Gulf Stream you would need a microscope to find the oil. Once the oil stops flowing, the ocean current wouldn't take very long to flush the Gulf, thus having a hard time finding oil is not suprising if dispersed in the Gulf Stream.

The oil has allegedly disappeared because there never was any oil to begin with, by that I mean it may indeed have been a small amount but nothing even remotely close to what media has said. And now media downplay the hysteria slowly phasing out the Oil from the news, and in one or two months people will have "magically" forgotten about it. This was a GIANT psyop, a test they ran to see how programmed people were / are.

People need to switch OFF the Television. the TV is programming their minds, it is mind control. TV "programme" eh. yeah right.

So, is this something you have intuited, is it an inkling of yours, or do you have some kind of evidence you are workign from?

It's an intruiging theory, to be sure, I'm just curious what makes you so positive.

I think most of the confusion caused by the fact that this oil in the gulf seems to be dissolving so quickly is a lack of knowledge about what was in that oil. The oil from this spill was classified as "Light Sweet Crude" a form of crude oil that has a high percentage of the alcohols used to manufacture gasoline, kerosene and Diesel fuel. Most of this would have evaporated into the atmosphere, especially with the warm climate of the gulf. The rest of the oil would be the organics composed of Alkenes (used in making plastics), asphalt, tar and paraffin wax. This compound, being mostly organics, would be either consumed by the local bacteria or sink to a lower depth, usually to the bottom. In a couple of months, these "tar balls" would be covered by ocean floor sedimentation and, effectively, return whence they came.

The main difference between this oil spill and the Exxon/Valdez oil spill is that the Exxon/Valdez oil spill dealt with refined oil, meaning that much of the organic compounds had been removed or changed, chemically, so that the local bacteria could not digest it, thus it stuck around for a very long time. According to some sources, there is still oil in that area.

The Gulf spill will, most likely, effect the gulf coast are for years to come. The extent of that effect is still undetermined with experts moving to a variety of extremes, from the effect being mostly over in a couple of months to some saying it will take decades. The problem that we get to deal with is which expert to believe. Who is on the books of oil companies who want to have this oil spill go away as quickly as possible, and which ones are on the payroll of the environmental corporations who want this disaster to linger for years so that their companies can reap huge profits from their products.
