I believe that it will come out that the well was not sealed properly and it has reopened with all the quake activity going on around Haiti.

From that same article ...

A fishing boat captain said he went through the slick yesterday and it was strong enough to make his eyes burn.

I think this article is related to this topic:

Coast Guard: Gulf substance is likely sediment

The Coast Guard says a miles-long patch of discolored goop floating in the Gulf of Mexico appears to be caused by river sediment.

The Coast Guard tested the patch Sunday and found only trace amounts of petroleum that were well below the state of Louisiana's standard for clean water. A news release says The Coast Guard believes the discoloration is the result of sediments brought down the Mississippi River.

Nothing to see here, it's just mississippi mud according to the Coast Guard, though they are deploying clean up crews and boom.. Do they always send clean up crews for sediment?

I posted this thread with pics of new Oil on Grand Isle, LA last night and it fell into the thread Abyss.

check it out.

This reminds me of the matrix Smith quote. " I tried to classify your species. I realized that your not actually mammals, every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment. But you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply, and multiply until every natural resource is consumed. And the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus......... Humans beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet, you are a plague.

Florida Water table shook after Japan Quake

Or... maybe the Japan quake was enough of a jolt to the Ocean's floor in the gulf to break it open and collapse a portion of the area where the oil escaped... or just damaged the 'fix' BP Did.

Is BP Still monitoring the wellhead with ROV's?

Great find!

It's stunning how everything is connected, isn't it?!

So there is no new leak?

posted on Mar, 21 2011 @ 11:44 AM
Nope no new leak just Mississippi Mud. Might be from the spring turnover of Lake Michigan but it's too early for that I think. But you never know

seems like we should all get ready to have to live in the woods and learn to eat nuts and berries !!!!!

Had a very interesting - bone chilling - conversation about this with a friend late last summer. She had just had weekend company - her husband's longtime friend working for NASA with inside information. My friend said that the NASA guy told her that the BP DeepWater oil spill had never really been stopped - that it could not be stopped - ever - with the technology that we currently have. NASA guy said that a hole/crevice had been opened up by the exploision that could not be filled/contained/fixed and that the spill would go on pretty much - FOREVER. At the time I didn't know what to make of the conversation - now it seems like there could be some merit to NASA guy's statements.

The scary part to me last year was seeing the uncensored pictures before the media blackout was instituted and then hearing pastor Lindsey Williams basically saying what you were told. My very first thoughts were of the verse in Revelation 8 that mentions one third of the sea turning to blood and one third of the creatures dying. Rather chilling to know we are living in the most prophetic of end times. As an aside, I read last year where the US Coast Guard had been co-opted into DHS. Some more chills.

Hurricane Creekkeeper John Wathen of the Waterkeeper Alliance first heard reports about the slick on Saturday and flew over the site for a firsthand look. He shot the photo at right, and more images from his flight can be seen here. "It was hard to believe I was seeing as much oil in the South Louisiana area again," he wrote on his blog yesterday. "It was even harder to believe that our so called government watchdogs have not closed these fishing grounds!"

There is no difference between blind rejection of the official story and blind acceptance. Both are based on pre-conceived notions and a total lack of willingness to admit not knowing while still seeking out new info.

Merely rejecting the official story because it's what you 'believe' is not the same as actually presenting evidence to actually contradict it.

I'm not buying the Mississippi River story. The water is many parts of Louisiana is not blue like you would expect, it is a muddy brown and that happens due to the sediments that come down from the Mississippi. It does not look like oil, it does not burn fisherman's eyes.

When the "accident" first happened many of us said we would not know the effects for years to come. We are now almost a full year out and the only thing I know is people are getting sick. I was speaking with the gentleman who lives across the street from me last night, he works offshore. He was involved in the clean up. He moved in last year and was so happy to receive such a great pay for the work he was doing. I would help out his family while he was offshore if they needed it, kind of keep an eye on the place. I warned him about some of the things we would discuss here. I tried to tell him to put his health first and protect himself. Last night he told me thought I was kind of crazy, but not anymore. He was sick now. He is coughing up brown goop that he has never seen in his life. Sometimes when he talks it just flies out of his mouth. He was showing me the scar from the tube they had to stick into his lung.

We still wont know the full effects of what happened in the Gulf, but one thing is certain, people are getting sick and no one can tell them why or what is wrong with them.

Perhaps the reason for not being able to diagnose what is wrong (presumably) would be most Dr.'s don't have the expertise in dealing with chemical poisoning and allergies. OTH, I do believe it a possibility that a few may have been "bought off" by BP for silence, regardless of their Hippocratic Oath. Large numbers of people have been pleading for help with their health problems since last year and BP, et al have ignored them and denied them compensation. I've seen a few videos with Gulf residents exhibiting hideous sores and rashes after exposure to contaminated Gulf water. What is so criminal in all this is the massive cover up and the fact BP was told to stop using Corexit, yet they continued to do so and our government did nothing beyond the initial warning, to stop them! This is both an international and domestic conspiratorial crime of epic proportion. My heart truly goes out to all those who are suffering physically, financially and emotionally. Godspeed.

I hope this is just silt or Mississippi mud or whatever the liars want to call it these days. If it turns out that the oil spill has just been covered up and not really stopped, then we as human beings are going to need to find a better solution to this horrible mess. I don't don't know what to think about this, other than in my opinion people should not be eating any seafood from the gulf region at all. It is sad that this oil plume is being reported as being "mostly mud". Ridiculous that they refer to oil as 'petroleum' to avoid the negative connotations associated with oil. Infuriating that some individuals would be happy to kill their own brothers and sisters just to make a buck.

I came up with a possible (yet highly unattractive) solution in anticipation that the oil volcano could not be contained. I don't know if that is what we are seeing now, and I pray that it is not.

well lets just hope some body is on this case promptly this time. better start chucking golf balls at it while we gotta chance.

Just providing an update here. Which really isn't much of one as they still are unsure as to what the cause is.

Days after observers spotted a massive oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico, no one in a position or power seems to yet know where it's coming from—or if they do, they're not letting on just yet.

Meanwhile, residents of the Louisiana Gulf community of Grand Isle, who thought they'd finally turned the page on the nightmare of last year's BP spill, have noticed crude invading once again.

"I was out there from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. yesterday and the stuff came in in waves onto the island and through Caminada Pass," Grand Isle resident Betty Doud told the New Orleans Times Picayune. "There were these orange, nasty waves and black oil mixed with it. The oil was in the rocks along the pass."

Officials Remain Baffled Over Oil Slick - News Article

And from another article:

Emulsified oil, oil mousse and tar balls from an unknown source were washing up on beaches from Grand Isle to West Timbalier Island along the Gulf of Mexico, a stretch of about 30 miles, and it was still heading west Monday afternoon, a Louisiana official said. The state is testing the material to see if it matches oil from last April's BP Deepwater Horizon disaster.

On Sunday, Jefferson Parish Councilman Chris Roberts reported that a Coast Guard official had said the oil might be from a project to plug and abandon a well just offshore of Grand Isle. But Coast Guard officials said they're still waiting for tests of material collected in that area to determine where it came from.

"At this point, the dark substance is believed to be caused by a tremendous amount of sediment being carried down the Mississippi River due to high water, possibly further agitated by dredging operations," the Coast Guard release said.

A spokesman for the Army Corps of Engineers, however, said none of the three dredges operating near the mouth of the Mississippi River has reported any oil in the material they're removing from the river bottom to keep the channel deep enough for ocean-going ships.

The Mississippi River had risen to 12.5 feet in New Orleans on Monday, up from only 3 feet above sea level three weeks ago, an indicator that the river contains a heavy load of sediment from upstream.

This is whats on RSOE as of 03/20/11'. Here is a direct quote:

Situation Update No. 1
On 20.03.2011 at 20:07 GMT+2

An oil slick measuring 12 miles wide and 100 miles long has been spotted in the Gulf of Mexico and is suspected to be from a new major leak at the Matterhorn Seastar oil rig just 20 miles from the Deepwater Horizon oil rig. Pilots from several independent organization are monitoring the slick and report it is spreading fast. Fishermen in Louisiana are reporting fresh oil slicks washing up on shore. Boom has been placed by cleanup crews to catch the spill. The Matterhorn field produces 5200 barrels of oil a day and was discovered in 1999. The well sits in 2789 feet of water and has been in production since 2003. It is 30 miles SE of the Mississippi River delta.

I don't believe its sediment anymore. . .
