Hi Stealthykat,

I followed your thread and also made some calls trying to keep this in the msm. Since no one can see whats going on down there, What do you think we can do to bring attention to this. I know you did alot of work on this subject. If you are planning on getting involved again I will be watching and ready to help if I can. My time is limited but I'm ready to jump back on the wagon with this one.

You were so right.

Hi! Well I am really at a loss as to how to monitor it. I have been trying to keep up with things, but there is really not much....until now. It could be just a temporary thing (the oil)....but I doubt it. I'll let you know for sure if anything else developes though. I'm going to check with BK....he knows his stuff....good to see you again BTW!

Check this out....then, at the bottom is a copy of my friend BK's letter to senators, along with his comments and analysis that there are still leaks to this day.

The leak never stopped,they may have capped the well but the fissures surrounding the hole CANNOT be fixed.
This event ends when the sea floor gives way and the entire oil reserve will start making its way to the surface,when it comes to the surface it will generate a small but powerful tsunami.

How much worse can this spill get, OK A lot worse. Im scared that what the money hungery oil tycoons have done to this planet, is not going to be reversable. Sadly we will all suffer from this, higher prices for oil, poison in the fish and other sea life we eat, Heck who knows how much of that chemical, BP used to disperse the oil and try and break it up, sink it back to the sea floor. I bet the seafloor is like a giant deserted gel of chemicals and oil, all mixed up into one, ready to coat the entire gulf and beyond. With No signs of sea life returning. This isnt the first and sadly it wont be the last oil spill, Not until we get our addiction of oil snuffed, and move on from the era of oil and gas. We need clean friendly energy, like Wind, Solar, hydrogen, even small Nuke reactors would most likely be better than this crap we are all forced to be addicted too. Every promising breakthrough in clean energy is bought up and shevled by the Oil industry, the last thing the Oil industry wants is competition.

I just came across this from Gulf Coast Maritime.

Here's an excerpt from the article

The United States Coast Guard reports that two remotely operated vehicles deployed to the Macondo 252 well head in the Gulf of Mexico have confirmed there is no oil leaking from the well head. According to the agency, as part of the investigation into recent National Response Center reports of sheen observed in the vicinity of the source of last year’s BP Deepwater Horizon explosion, fire, and ensuing massive oil spill, on August 25th two ROVs were deployed from the Grant Candies to survey the well head. Upon arrival at the well head, the ROVs began an initial, full survey of the well head and vicinity, with a 20-foot radius, looking for evidence of leaking oil. Additionally, a zoom lens was used to examine both the well head and the base of the well head to look for smaller, less obvious signs of leakage. The ROV also visited the two relief well sites. When the survey concluded some ten hours after the ROVs were first deployed, no evidence of leaking oil was found.

If the oil is not coming from the wellhead, nor the relief wells, then where is is coming from?

I always thought that oil was always seeping from the ocean floor naturally. May be we should look for any seismic activity higher than normal in the Gulf of late? Anyone?

Yes, it does, but maybe not in the large quantities we've seen. I believe there is siesmic activity going on (or is going to) Did you see the video in my BP thread (the very first one?) It is freaking scary....if you watch carefully, you can see the seafloor slowly moving to the right...then all hell breaks loose. It was close to that date that Clinton Louisiana had an earthquake. It was small, but really unusual in yes, I think something could happen as far as earthquakes.

The real question I think is: is this new oil from the well, or is this the oil that sank from the surface and was floating around around middepth and at the gulf floor?

Or is this the oil that is now seeping up through the cracks in the seafloor caused by the explosion of the oil well? I remember videos like this:

We know there was significant damage done to the seafloor when this happened. There is more video evidence that shows it. The question is how bad was the damage and how long would it take for us to see the effects of such damage. Maybe we are about to see.

And one more with some really good image. Also a very good read: Oil Sharks, Doilphins, and SeaToitles -- Enough is Enough!

2011 August 30 Gulf of Mexico: ...In fact, we found so much oil out in the Macondo Prospect (near the site of the April 2010 explosion), that we have an 11-minute video of it that never covers the same area twice! Not since last summer have we seen this kind of expansive surface sheen. Metallic-gray and rainbow swirls stretched for miles, mixed with dark-brown stuff that resembled weathered crude more than sargassum weed. And there were those round-shaped 'globs' of oil again, here, there, and everywhere it seemed. We did not want to see this stuff anymore!

Image say a lot. it saddens me to see these animals swimming through this stuff. I see them and it hits me: They will be dead soon.

I have lost all faith in the mainstream media. I don't watch them and I very rarely travel to their sites unless it's for live video feeds. They are the mouthpieces of corporate America who tell them what to report when and how. They don't care about what's happening, just ratings and money.

Hi Dragon! Long time no see
A geologist friend of mine who worked for the oil companies (actually he's a geohazard specialist), said the what they are doing in the video you posted was an attempt at grouting the seafloor to hide the cracks an fissures that they caused ....See how the arm of the ROV looks like it's stuck into the seafloor? It could be doing the grout injection under a lot of pressue, and the seafloor can't hold you get those tornado like things bursting up......also those explosion type things we saw.....same thing but deeper until the seafloor just gives ou, and looks like a big explosion. Nice to see you again!

Assuming that to be the case, we all know there were cracks in the seafloor. They know that we know there are cracks. With not ROVs there (for the most part), no video cameras sitting there watching and the public not able to see what is going on down there, they can get away with doing whatever they want and who is going to tell them no? The only way this is ever going to get more media attention again like it did before, is if people die or there is another explosion. Sad but true. The only thing we can do now is hope for organizations like these to continue to show us the truth.

And nice to see you again also
Was wondering if you and a few others were still wandering around here

Matthew Simmons had stated that BP never capped the well and the gulf of mexico was on fire. soon after that BP killed him.
