Temperatures set to hit record low of -26C in England as forecasters predict freezing countdown to Christmas
By Daily Mail Reporter
Last updated at 4:56 PM on 19th December 2010


Forecasters are predicting that the lowest temperature ever recorded in England could be broken this week.

They suggest that the record low of -26.1C could be topped as the snow and bad weather caused air and road chaos across the country.

While they say that their prediction is a cautious one, the winter solstice this coming Tuesday is said to increase the chance as the sun is at its lowest point in the sky.

well, fact is, you do have one excellent weather forecaster over on your frozen rock ... who researches the sun to predict "trends" - with a great deal of accuracy ...

The Gulf of Mexico is Dying
A Special Report on the BP Gulf Oil Spill

by Dr. Tom Termotto


Global Research, December 26, 2010

It is with deep regret that we publish this report. We do not take this responsibility lightly, as the consequences of the following observations are of such great import and have such far-reaching ramifications for the entire planet. Truly, the fate of the oceans of the world hangs in the balance, as does the future of humankind.

The Gulf of Mexico (GOM) does not exist in isolation and is, in fact, connected to the Seven Seas. Hence, we publish these findings in order that the world community will come together to further contemplate this dire and demanding predicament. We also do so with the hope that an appropriate global response will be formulated, and acted upon, for the sake of future generations. It is the most basic responsibility for every civilization to leave their world in a better condition than that which they inherited from their forbears.

After conducting the Gulf Oil Spill Remediation Conference for over seven months, we can now disseminate the following information with the authority and confidence of those who have thoroughly investigated a crime scene. There are many research articles, investigative reports and penetrating exposes archived at the following website. Particularly those posted from August through November provide a unique body of evidence, many with compelling photo-documentaries, which portray the true state of affairs at the Macondo Prospect in the GOM.

http://phoenixrisingfromthegulf.wordpress.com/

The pictorial evidence tells the whole story.

Especially that the BP narrative is nothing but a corporate-created illusion – a web of fabrication spun in collaboration with the US Federal Government and Mainstream Media. Big Oil, as well as the Military-Industrial Complex, have aided and abetted this whole scheme and info blackout because the very future of the Oil & Gas Industry is at stake, as is the future of the US Empire which sprawls around the world and requires vast amounts of hydrocarbon fuel.

Should the truth seep out and into the mass consciousness – that the GOM is slowly but surely filling up with oil and gas – certainly many would rightly question the integrity, and sanity, of the whole venture, as well as the entire industry itself. And then perhaps the process would begin of transitioning the planet away from the hydrocarbon fuel paradigm altogether.

It’s not a pretty picture.

The various pictures, photos and diagrams that fill the many articles at the aforementioned website represent photo-evidence about the true state of affairs on the seafloor surrounding the Macondo Prospect in the Mississippi Canyon, which is located in the Central Planning Area of the northern Gulf of Mexico. The very dynamics of the dramatic changes and continuous evolution of the seafloor have been captured in ways that very few have ever seen. These snapshots have given us a window of understanding into the true state of the underlying geological formations around the various wells drilled in the Macondo Prospect.

Although our many deductions may be difficult for the layperson to apprehend at first, to the trained eye these are but obvious conclusions which are simply the result of cause and effect. In other words there is no dispute around the most serious geological changes which have occurred, and continue to occur, in the region around the Macondo wells. The original predicament (an 87 day gushing well) was extremely serious, as grasped by the entire world, and the existing situation is only going to get progressively worse.

So, just what does this current picture look like. Please click on the link below to view the relevant diagrams and read the commentary:

http://phoenixrisingfromthegulf.wordpre ... -prospect/

As the diagrams clearly indicate, the geology around the well bore has been blown. This occurred because of drilling contiguous to a salt dome(1), as well as because of the gas explosions which did much damage to the integrity of the well casing, cementing, well bore, well head, and foundation around the well head. Eighty-seven straight days of gushing hydrocarbon effluent under great pressure only served to further undermine the entire well system. Finally, when it was capped, putting the system back under pressure forced the upsurging hydrocarbons to find weaknesses throughout the greater system, which revealed all sorts of compromised, fractured and unsettled geology through which the hydrocarbons could travel all the way to the seafloor and into the GOM.

(1)“The rock beds in the vicinity of a salt dome are highly fractured and permeable due to stress and deformation which occur as the salt dome thrusted upwards.” (Per BK Lim, Geohazards Specialist)

We also have faults* to deal with in this scenario of which there are both deep and shallow. Depending on the current vital stats of the blown out well, especially its actual depth; the number, location and severity of the breaches throughout the well system; the pressure at the wellhead; as well as the type and status of geological formations/strata it has been drilled into, these faults will become prominently configured into the future stability of the whole region. Larger faults can open up much greater opportunities for the hydrocarbons to find their way to the seafloor via cracks and crevices, craters and chasms. In fact the numerous leaks and seeps throughout the seafloor surface, which are quite apparent from various ROV live-feeds, give testimony to sub-seafloor geological formations in great turmoil and undergoing unprecedented flux.

*“Once the oil gets into the shallow faulted zones, we have an uncontrollable situation. The place where most of the oil and gas is coming out is at the foot hills of the continental shelf as shown in figure 134-1 in the article “BP continues to dazzle us with their unlimited magic”. The discovery by WHOI of the 22 mile long river of oil originated from these leaks. So the leaks will be mainly along the faults where I have marked (shallow) in “What is going on at West Sirius” and deep strike-slip faults (red line) on fig 134-1.” (Per BK Lim, Geohazards Specialist)

Just how bad is this situation?

There are actually three different ongoing disasters – each more grave and challenging than the previous one – which must be considered when assessing the awesome destruction to the GOM by the Oil & Gas Industry.

I. A single gushing well at 7o – 100,000 barrels per day of hydrocarbon effluent for 87 days into the GOM at the Macondo Prospect along with two smaller rogue wells

II. Numerous leaks and seeps within five to ten square miles of the Macondo well with an aggregate outflow of an unknown amount of hydrocarbon effluent per day into the GOM

III. Countless gushers and spills, leaks and seeps, throughout the Gulf of Mexico, where drilling has been conducted for many decades, with an aggregate outflow that can not even be estimated, but is well in excess of any guesstimate which would ensure the slow and steady demise of the GOM.

It is the last scenario which we all face and to which there is no easy or obvious solution. The truth be told, there currently does not exist the technology or machinery or equipment to repair the damage that has been wrought by the process of deep undersea drilling, especially when it is performed in the wrong place. Therefore, wherever the oil and gas find points of entry into the GOM through the seafloor, these leaks and seeps will only continue to get worse. Here’s why:

Methane gas mixed with saltwater and mud makes for a very potent corrosive agent. Under high pressure it will find every point of egress through the rock and sediment formations all the way up to the seafloor where it will find any point of exit that is available. The longer and more forcefully that it flows throughout the fractured area, which is dependent on the volume, temperature and pressure at the source of the hydrocarbons, the more its corrosive effects will widen, broaden and enlarge the channels, cracks and crevices throughout the sub-seafloor geology, thereby creating a predicament that no science, technology or equipment can remedy.

Dire realities of the methane hydrate predicament

The Macondo Prospect in the GOM is just one of many throughout the oceans of the world where the seafloor has beds of methane hydrate locked in place by very high pressure and low temperatures. Likewise, there are myriad repositories and large “reservoirs” of methane clathrates in the sub-seafloor strata, and especially within the more superficial geological formations, which are being greatly impacted by all oil and gas drilling and extraction activities. It does not take much imagination to understand how the upsurging hydrocarbons (very hot oil and gas) are quickly converting the frozen hydrates to gas, thereby causing innumerable “micro-displacements”, the cumulative effect of which will translate to larger “macro-displacements” of rock, sediment and other geological formations.

When you factor in this constant vaporization of methane hydrates/clathrates both sub-seafloor as well as those scattered around the seafloor surface to the existing scenario, this devolving situation becomes that much more difficult to effectively remedy. With the resulting shifts and resettling and reconfiguration of the entire seafloor terrain and underlying strata occurring in the wake of these dynamics, we are left with a situation that is not going to get better through the use of even more invasive technology and intrusive machinery.





Question: How many times can you grout a seafloor crack that was caused by an underlying superficial fault after drilling into an old mud volcano?

Answer: “In the attempt to seal the oil from oozing through the faults, BP resorted to high pressure grouting. Basically it is like cementing the cracks in the rock by injecting grout (cement mixture) at high pressure. The way they do this is by drilling an injection hole into the shallow rocks and pumping in the grout. The grout in “slurry” state will permeate into the cracks, cure and seal up the cracks. However it is not working because of the presence of gas and oil. It is like super-glue. You need to clean the surfaces before you apply the glue; otherwise it won’t stick and will come off eventually after a few days or weeks. That is why we can see a few blown out craters – shown in my article – Is the last rite for the Macondo Well for real?” (Per BK Lim, Geohazards Specialist)

Likewise, how do you fill a newly emerging gash in the seafloor which is caused by a deep fault due to low level seismic activity, or worse, a full blown earthquake?!

Seismic activity in the GOM and the uptick in earthquakes in the Mississippi River Basin and surrounding region


The oil and gas platforms that were in operation throughout the northern Gulf of Mexico in 2006 (per Wikipedia).

We now come to the most serious issue regarding the relentless drilling for oil and gas throughout the Gulf of Mexico. The map above clearly illustrates the density of drilling throughout the northern GOM as of 2006. Likewise, the map below demonstrates the extraordinary and increasing intensity of these very same operations off the coast of Louisiana alone.



Green lines represent active pipes (25,000 miles in all). Yellow dots represent oil rigs.

The map that follows, however, tells a story which demands the attention of every resident of the GOM coastline. The video link below the map shows the development timeline of the successively deeper wells being drilled during the last decade. Of course, with greater depths come much greater risks, as the technology and machinery have not been proportionately upgraded to accommodate the extraordinary demands and unforeseen contingencies of such a speculative and dangerous enterprise*.

*Oil and gas drilling in seawater depths of over 4000 feet, and through 15,000 to 25,000 feet of the earth’s crust and mantle, is considered extremely dangerous to those from whom reason and common sense have not yet fled.

It’s critical to understand the location and current activity of the various faults which exist throughout the GOM and how they connect to the New Madrid Fault Line, as well as other major faults at much greater distance. There does appear to be a emerging uptick in earthquake activity in the greater Louisiana area, as well as contiguous regions in the GOM as demonstrated by unprecedented, albeit low level earthquakes. Correlations between these earthquakes/seismic activity and major operations at the Macondo Prospect have been alluded to in our previous postings.
Earthquake Activity in Gulf of Mexico Prompts 2003 Study for MMS
Gulf of Mexico Subsea Structures May Be in Seismic Danger Zone – Part 2

Now then, the question remains just how vulnerable has the GOM been made to a truly catastrophic event, ending up with an overwhelming displacement of water producing tidal waves, in the aftermath of an undersea earthquake.

There is no question that the ceaseless fracturing of the seafloor and fissuring of the sub-seafloor geological strata by the Oil & Gas Industry has set up a quite conducive environment for HUGE unintended consequences. We leave it up to the experts to conduct the necessary risk assessments, which will most assuredly let loose a sea of red flags about what Big Oil has done, and is currently doing, in the Gulf of Mexico. Furthermore, we are deeply concerned that, if a permanent moratorium on all new oil and gas drilling and extraction in the GOM is not put into place poste haste, the coastal communities will remain in a very precarious situation.

Worsening GOM predicament is reflective of the status quo around the globe

Now consider the following scenario: that this very same predicament, which we have all witnessed in the Gulf of Mexico, is happening wherever oil and gas drilling is conducted in the various water bodies throughout the planet. Therefore we can multiply the Macondo Prospect disaster a hundred times and still not come close to the impacts that these ongoing gushers and spills, leaks and seeps are having the world over.

Perhaps the BP Gulf Oil Spill was the defining moment in modern history when all the nations of the world community were called by Mother Earth herself to begin transitioning the planet away from the Hydrocarbon Fuel Paradigm. After all, we may never get another chance!

Censored Gulf news: Oily Corexit still bubbles ashore (video)

* December 21st, 2010 1:56 am ET


Video ©2010 John Wathen, Hurricane CreekkeeperHurricane Creekkeeper John L. Wathen has presented a short documentary, Will Our Beaches Never Be The Same, highlighting the 8-month environmental and community damage from the Gulf of Mexico "crime of the millennium" against humanity and planet that continues. The oil keeps washing ashore. Black ops continue aerial spraying Corexit.

To demonstrate the unprecedented and ongoing crime with impunity, Mr. Wathern highlights Dauphin Island Beach in Alabama.

John Wathen is among Gulf reporters "dedicated to exposing the truth behind the BP oil disaster." His website is named BP Slick.

"Some knew they were saying goodbye to a lifestyle," he writes in his film introduction, "while others thought it would only be a short break in the action."

Sponsored by WATERKEEPER Alliance (http://saveourgulf.org), with aerial photography courtesy of South Wings and Project Gulf Impact support, Mr. Wathen documents in the new short documentary the continued cover-up of both the crime and the poisons on the beaches. He shows the absurd futility of BP workers on the beaches.

On December 11, Wathen and Pam Batson filmed Dauphin Island beach. Wathen says he found the amount of heavy equipment on the beach shocking.

"Heavy equipment was being unloaded on the beach only days ago," says Wathen. "The sand all seems to be brown, the same color as Corexit. The beach was cover with Corexit oil balls. I won't call these things tarballs because that's not what they are."

"In all my life and all my time on Dauphin Island, I've never seen this... Thick brown sludge on top of the sand. Very few shore birds were seen... There's a sheen on top of the water, light as it may be, it's still not suppose to be there."

"All you had to do was brush your foot on the sand and you see old oil as well as new oil," he reports.

Contractors along the surface said they are sifting the sand.

On the surface, to Wathen, it first seemed to be a heroic effort to clean the beach.

"The futility of it all came very clear when we looked and found people with little minnow nets sifting tarballs out of the sand. Four-wheelers running down the side of the beach pulling rakes that seemed to be nothing but blending in the oil with the sand..There was a brown-yellow look to it from the tide line all the way to where the water was. It got darker as it got closer to the water. Were they cleaning it, or were they just blending it into the sand."

Security soon appeared the last day Wathern filmed. They announced the rules including having to escort people.

One guard explained that "people are happy they are getting their beach refurbished."

"I'm so proud because it's really going to raise the value of the property," stated one of the BP workers. "Good Lord works in mysterious ways, you know?" she said and laughed.

A BP worker explained to Wathen, what he has heard before - that it was just dirt washing up on the shore.

"My greatest fear is that this is only the beginning, just the first year," Wathen states.

"This is a disaster of historic proportion, and the people once again are paying the price - for greed, profit and lack of accountability."

According to this writer's sources, Corexit was aerial sprayed around 4 a.m. one morning last week in south Louisiana.

Blood Tests On Gulf Residents SHOW TOXINS

In early September, The Intel Hub and Project Gulf Impact released blood tests that showed toxic chemicals in multiple gulf residents. Not only were these findings ignored, they were “debunked” by BP and government talking heads alike.

Three and a half months later we now know that these tests were indeed valid and ultimately show the need for more testing at a massive level.

KLFY Eyewitness News has conducted news tests on four males who age ranged from 3 to 43. They also tested a 38 year old female. The tests indicated massive exposure to toxic chemicals associated with CRUDE OIL.

“The two most common methods of exposure are either direct contact on the skin or by breathing it in. But ingestion, eating food already contaminated with these chemicals is another source of contamination and the one that worries those in charge of this study the most,” wrote KLFY.com in their Oil Spill Health Study.

The study done by the Louisiana Environmental Action Network also showed elevated levels of ethyl benzene and petroleum hydrocarbons in the seafood that the group tested.

These tests line up directy with the tests that we released on September 5th, 2010. In the article, “From the Gulf Stream to the Bloodstream and Why What You’re About To Read Is The Alarm Bell of The Pending Gulf Disaster,” Matt Smith wrote extensively about the health concerns of using over 2 million gallons of toxic dispersant to essentially cover up the extent of the oil damage.

“For nearly five months, the BP oil disaster has consumed the minds of millions of people worldwide. In addition to the horrific impacts that the crude oil and chemical dispersants have daily on the environment and the economy, a fatal threat has quietly slipped by the public’s proverbial radar. The harm dealt by this silent enemy is beginning to creep into the lives of those living and working in the Gulf.”

Where is the National Media Coverage?

* February 12, 2011 5:17 pm

An open letter to members of the national media:

I know many of you with national voices read this blog, because you’ve been kind enough to tell me so. I’ve raised a glass or two with some of you, and traded barbs with others. It’s been an honor to, on occasion, be included in your work. Your reporting and attention is valued, and that’s why I’m addressing you personally and collectively in this post.

We’re dying down here on the Gulf – and we need your help to restore our way of life and our culture.

The economic devastation is hitting everyone from waitresses to fishermen to restaurateurs to property owners. Figuratively and literally, we’re dying. My neighbors and some of my clients are reporting severe illnesses directly related to the spill. We have names, we have case studies. We even have some local reporters with the courage to cover what is fast becoming a health crisis among cleanup workers and residents living in coastal communities (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQgNDCiI ... r_embedded). But local coverage, compelling as it is, isn’t enough.

We need the attention of the national media, and we need it right away.

From the beginning, human health effects of the spill have largely been pushed aside both by the federal government and the national media? We were hyper-focused on “who’s to blame?” and “when will they cap the well?” and how economic damages would be assessed. All the while, cleanup workers and coastal residents were inhaling toxic fumes – touching and, in some cases, swimming in contaminated Gulf waters. And soon enough the oil and dispersants washed ashore, into our food chain and our population.

Government officials continue to say we’re all-clear – particularly when it comes to seafood safety. But these are the same BP “partners” who sold you the story of 5,000 barrels a day and rubber-stamped the use of the toxic dispersant Corexit. Let’s not forget when the U.S. Coast Guard became BP rent-a-cops and setup “safety zones” around heavily impacted areas to prevent journalists, photographers and other prying eyes from seeing the damage. Or when there were no underwater oil plumes, until of course, there were. Or the “vast majority of oil is gone” message, until that was laughed out of the debate. I don’t know about you, but I see a pattern here.



We’re awash in oil, dispersant and misinformation.

They tell us about the number of seafood tests they’ve conducted. But the bottom line is this: You can do a million of the wrong tests, and it won’t tell you a thing. You can sniff every dang shrimp in the Gulf, but if the toxins can’t be detected by smell, you’ll find nothing. If you control the test (and the government does) and you control the “safe levels” – you can declare anything safe.

For example, the consumption level for shrimp is set at FOUR. That’s four shrimp a week. Four? In New Orleans, that’s not a consumption level, that’s a shrimp cocktail – and a tiny one at that.

Look, four weeks after the Deepwater Horizon exploded and began the BP oil spill, some of us were saying that the real story was human health. In fact, my firm and others stepped in to prevent BP from demanding that cleanup workers sign legal waivers (so they couldn’t sue when they got sick or injured). Believe me, BP knew the risk early on. They just didn’t issue a press release.

But it seems the national media is still reluctant to shine a light on human health impacts. The congressional focus has remained on “who’s to blame?” and the media is focused on the claims process. It’s like our homes were firebombed, and the first responders were the arson investigators and insurance agents – rather than firemen with a hose.

A month after the explosion, I wrote that “human health is the real oil spill issue,” but was told “it’s too early to know, we have no test results.” (see http://oilspillaction.com/human-health- ... pill-issue) Well, after the testing showed high-level toxic exposures, we were told “well, it’s not a story, because nobody is actually sick.” (see http://oilspillaction.com/no-safe-harbo ... c-exposure) Now that people are getting sick all over the Gulf, we’re told “well, how do we know the spill caused it?”

Come on. We all know what it will take to make post-spill human health a story: When people start dying in large numbers. And make no mistake, that’s the next phase if we don’t address it, now. My colleagues, the researchers who work with me and with our environmental clients, are almost never wrong – that’s why they have been bullied around by government agencies hoping to intimidate independent researchers (see http://oilspillaction.com/alert-is-the- ... esearchers). Even that got more coverage than most health issues.

Some of you have explained to me that your news organizations have their limits, and the implication is that a few hundred million in advertising and all those Important People who know your bosses are quick to discredit the “local” research. I’ll bite my tongue on that.

I applaud the media outlets that have been diligent and courageous enough to challenge the campaign of misinformation coming from BP and the federal government. To those news organizations that are reluctant to take a stand, I urge to get back to doing what has made the American media the envy of so many countries around the world: Seek the truth and hold responsible parties accountable (whoever they may be).

We’re really not so far from the heady media days of the Vietnam War and Watergate, and this unprecedented disaster demands an equally courageous response from our national media.

Please get back to doing what you do best!

to add to our list of man-made doom ....

Black Swan Clusterflock +1.

As if earthquakes, tsunamis, nuclear meltdowns and war was not enough, the Examiner now discloses that a replay of the BP oil spill could be in the making, sending WTI to the (super)moon, the economy collapsing, and Ben Bernanke starting the printer in advance of QE 666. To wit: "The U.S. Coast Guard is currently investigating reports of a potentially massive oil sheen about 20 miles away from the site of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion last April." There are no definitive reports yet, but we should now for sure within hours, if the Keppel FELS built TLP is indeed the culprit: "According to Paul Barnard, operations controller for the USCG in Louisiana, a helicopter crew has been dispatched to the site of the Matterhorn SeaStar oil rig, owned by W&T Offshore, Inc." And if preliminary reports are correct, BP will have been the appetizer: "Multiple reports have come in of a sheen nearly 100 miles long and 10 miles wide originating near the site." If confirmed, Obama can kiss tomorrow's Rio golf outing goodbye.

Independent pilots, including John Wathen of the Waterkeeper Alliance, and Bonnie Schumaker with Wings of Care, are currently flying out to investigate the spill. Schumaker reports having seen the sheen on Friday, March 18, and confirms that it is rapidly expanding.

A Louisiana fisherman, who has chosen to remain anonymous at this time, also reports fresh oil coming ashore near South Pass, LA, and that cleanup crews are laying new boom near the beach.

The site of the sheen, near Mississippi Canyon 243, lies 30 miles from the Louisiana coastline. The Matterhorn field, at a depth of 2,789 feet (850 meters) of water, was discovered in 1999, leased and permitted in July 2001, and came into production in November 2003. It is located 30 miles SE of the mouth of the Mississippi River.

According to W&T, the field has produced an average rate of 5,200 barrels of oil per day, and has production capacities of 35,000 barrels of oil per day.

Manslaughter charge explored in spill

By PETE YOST, Associated Press Pete Yost, Associated Press – Tue Mar 29, 3:54 pm ET

WASHINGTON – Manslaughter and perjury are among possible charges that Justice Department investigators are exploring in the early stages of their probe into the Gulf oil spill, people familiar with the inquiry said Tuesday.

These people said the Justice Department is not ruling out the possibility of bringing manslaughter charges against companies or managers responsible for the explosion aboard the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig that killed 11 workers.

The department also is examining congressional testimony by company executives, including former BP CEO Tony Hayward, to determine whether their statements were untruthful, these people added.

They cautioned that the investigation is still far from complete and spoke on condition of anonymity about the ongoing investigation.

Justice Department spokeswoman Laura Sweeney declined to comment.

Earlier this month, the Justice Department reorganized its oil spill investigation. It created a unified task force so investigators from Justice's criminal and environmental divisions and from the U.S. attorney's office in New Orleans can coordinate overlapping work of looking into civil violations and criminal culpability, if any.

Deputy Attorney General James Cole ordered the move to avoid duplication of effort. Criminal division senior counsel John Buretta is leading the task force, and criminal division chief Lanny Breuer is supervising it.

The drilling rig explosion occurred on April 20, 2010. A month and a half later, Attorney General Eric Holder announced criminal and civil investigations of the disaster.

"We will closely examine the actions of those involved in the spill. If we find evidence of illegal behavior, we will be extremely forceful in our response," Holder said in New Orleans.

Bringing a manslaughter charge against a corporation is unusual but not unprecedented.

Two weeks after Holder announced the probe, Cole told Congress that prosecuting individual executives is the best deterrent when there is corporate misconduct.

Cole did not oppose charging corporations criminally, but added that doing so can unfairly penalize innocent shareholders and employees.

He added that charging any corporation is a sensitive subject within the Justice Department and that doing so can affect "thousands and thousands" of employees and shareholders with no role in the misconduct.

In the Enron scandal, Cole counseled Arthur Anderson LLP on revamping its document retention policies, then watched the accounting firm collapse after the Justice Department brought a criminal case.

In December, the Justice Department sued BP, oil rig owner Transocean and several other companies in the government's effort to recover billions of dollars for economic and environmental damage. BP was leasing the rig that exploded from Transocean. BP was majority owner of the well that blew out.

In January, a presidential commission found that the spill was caused by time-saving and money-saving decisions by BP, Halliburton and Transocean that created unacceptable risk.

One lawyer who has represented clients in the energy industry for over a decade, Anthony Michael Sabino, says a manslaughter charge would appear to be unlikely based on what is publicly known so far about events.

For example, in the run-up to the explosion on April 20, BP engineers, amid some debate, decided not to install as many devices called "centralizers" as originally planned, a decision that the presidential commission emphasized in its recent report.

"The key aspect of this is that's it's debatable as to how many of these devices were necessary, and the mere fact that there could be reasonable debate demonstrates that a criminal charge is probably not the wisest move, but rather left as a civil matter as to what level of negligence this constitutes, if any," said Sabino, who also is a law professor at the Tobin College of Business at St. John's University in New York City.

According to an ongoing lawsuit in Houston, Kevin Lacy, BP's former senior vice president for drilling operations for the Gulf of Mexico, reached a mutual agreement with the company to resign in December 2009 because Lacy believed the company was not adequately committed to improving safety protocols in offshore drilling operations to the level of its industry peers.

The suit said Lacy, an experienced drilling engineer who had implemented a rigorous drilling safety program while at Chevron, had been recruited to join BP in 2007 to improve and standardize its drilling policies and protocols.

Bloomberg News was first to report the possibility of a manslaughter charge by the Justice Department.

Short Life Expectancy for BP Whistleblowers?



By Pat Shannan

The investigation, if it can properly be so called, of the unsolved murder of the former high ranking Pentagon official and presidential advisor John P. Wheeler III, who was also an expert on chemical and biological weapons, may be taking a turn in the direction of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

Wheeler, 67, a West Point grad, was beaten and thrown into a garbage dumpster. His body was discovered in a Wilmington, Del. landfill last New Year’s weekend. Both police detectives and news commentators described it as “an apparent hit,” but little else was ever learned, and no suspects have surfaced.

There was great speculation by many at the time that Wheeler had begun to blow the whistle on the mysterious bird and fish deaths in Arkansas and Texas, and was about to expose the facts tying this to the chemtrails seen in our skies over the past decade.

Now the speculation may be reverting to British Petroleum and the gulf spill because a number of other BP whistle blowing scientists, before and since the Wheeler murder, have also died mysteriously, been jailed on questionable charges or disappeared without a trace.

Matthew Simmons, 67, a former energy advisor to President George W. Bush and admired among survivalist groups for his dire warnings on the upcoming commodity and fuel shortages about to hit this nation, died in his hot tub in Maine last August. Simmons had been gaining popularity as a whistle blower for blaming BP for its covered-up responsibility in defacing and vandalizing the Gulf of Mexico while hiding the truth from the general public.

Only four days later, Ted Stevens, the 87-year-old defrocked senator from Alaska, said to have received communications regarding BP’s faulty blowout preventer, perished in a plane crash. British Petroleum had donated $1 million to the University of Alaska to catalog the papers from Stevens’s long political career.

Roger Grooters began a cross country bike ride in Oceanside, Calif. on Sept. 10 to draw attention to the Gulf Coast oil disaster. On Oct. 6, in front of the horrified eyes of his wife, who was trailing in a support vehicle, Grooters was struck by a truck and killed instantly in Panama City, Fla.

Only a month later, Dr. Geoffrey Gardner of Lakeland, Fla. disappeared. He was investigating the unexplained bird deaths near Sarasota that are suspected to have been caused by the BP oil disaster. No one has heard from or spoken with him since.

On Nov. 15, Chitra Chaunhan was found dead of cyanide poisoning in a Temple Terrace, Fla. hotel. It was officially ruled a suicide. She worked in the Center for Biological Defense and Global Health Infectious Disease Research and left behind a husband and five-year-old child.

The following week, James Patrick Black, director of operations for BP’s restoration organization for the oil spill, died near Destin, Fla. in a small plane crash.

Dr. Thomas B. Manton was one of the first to warn the public that far more oil than what BP had reported was gushing into the gulf every day and that the massive, toxic oil and chemical plumes would travel up the eastern seaboard, contaminating beaches and wildlife all the way.

“Once the winds change, it will come eastward and pollute the beaches of the west coast of Florida, and the ‘loop current’ could carry this oil spill right around Florida, through the Florida Keys and pollute the east coast of Florida as well,” Manton wrote on May 28, 2010.

Dr. Tom Termotto, national coordinator of the Gulf Oil Spill Remediation Conference, says Manton was murdered in prison. Manton had been sentenced to 15 years last August on a phony child pornography charge. Termotto and others say evidence was planted on his computer.

It is not known whether or not Anthony Nicholas Tremonte, 31, posed any threat to BP, but he too was arrested in January and charged with one count of possession of child pornography. Was this charge also faked? As an officer with the Mississippi Department of Marine Resources on the Gulf Coast, he may have known enough to qualify him for membership in this exclusive series of coincidences. He faces up to 40 years in prison if convicted.

Gulf spill sickness wrecking lives (people are dying)

Aljazeera reports that gulf spill sickness wrecking lives.

Gulf spill sickness wrecking lives
Nearly a year after the oil disaster began, Gulf Coast residents are sick, and dying from BP's toxic chemicals.
By Dahr Jamail
Last Modified: 09 Mar 2011 15:42 GMT

National and State Parks along the Gulf Coast have posted health warnings along the coast [Erika Blumenfeld/AJE]

"I have critically high levels of chemicals in my body," 33-year-old Steven Aguinaga of Hazlehurst, Mississippi told Al Jazeera. "Yesterday I went to see another doctor to get my blood test results and the nurse said she didn't know how I even got there."

Aguinaga and his close friend Merrick Vallian went swimming at Fort Walton Beach, Florida, in July 2010.

"I swam underwater, then found I had orange slick stuff all over me," Aguinaga said. "At that time I had no knowledge of what dispersants were, but within a few hours, we were drained of energy and not feeling good. I've been extremely sick ever since."

BP's oil disaster last summer gushed at least 4.9 million barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, causing the largest accidental marine oil spill in history - and the largest environmental disaster in US history. Compounding the problem, BP has admitted to using at least 1.9 million gallons toxic dispersants, including one chemical that has been banned in the UK. [someone from BP recently admitted to used 16 million gallons of dispersants, SO FAR …]

According to chemist Bob Naman, these chemicals create an even more toxic substance when mixed with crude oil. Naman, who works at the Analytical Chemical Testing Lab in Mobile, Alabama, has been carrying out studies to search for the chemical markers of the dispersants BP used to both sink and break up its oil.

Poly-aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) from this toxic mix are making people sick, Naman said. PAHs contain compounds that have been identified as carcinogenic, mutagenic, and teratogenic.

"The dispersants are being added to the water and are causing chemical compounds to become water soluble, which is then given off into the air, so it is coming down as rain, in addition to being in the water and beaches of these areas of the Gulf," Naman told Al Jazeera.

"I'm scared of what I'm finding. These cyclic compounds intermingle with the Corexit [dispersants] and generate other cyclic compounds that aren't good. Many have double bonds, and many are on the EPA's danger list. This is an unprecedented environmental catastrophe."

Aguinaga's health has been in dramatic decline.

"I have terrible chest pain, at times I can't seem to get enough oxygen, and I'm constantly tired with pains all over my body," Aguinaga explained, "At times I'm pissing blood, vomiting dark brown stuff, and every pore of my body is dispensing water."

And AGUINAGA'S FRIEND VALLIAN IS NOW DEAD.

"After we got back from our vacation in Florida, Merrick went to work for a company contracted by BP to clean up oil in Grand Isle, Louisiana," Aguinaga said of his 33-year-old physically fit friend.

"Aside from some gloves, BP provided no personal protection for them. He worked for them for two weeks and THEN DIED ON AUGUST 23. He had just got his first paycheck, and it was in his wallet, uncashed, when he died."

National health crisis

Many of the chemicals present in the oil and dispersants are known to cause headaches, nausea, vomiting, kidney damage, altered renal function, and irritation of the digestive tract. They have also caused lung damage, burning pain in the nose and throat, coughing, pulmonary edema, cancer, lack of muscle coordination, dizziness, confusion, irritation of the skin, eyes, nose, and throat, difficulty breathing, delayed reaction time and memory difficulties.

Further health problems include stomach discomfort, liver and kidney damage, unconsciousness, tiredness/lethargy, irritation of the upper respiratory tract, hematological disorders, and death. Pathways of exposure to the chemicals are inhalation, ingestion, skin, and eye contact.

Al Jazeera has talked with scores of sick people across the Gulf Coast who attribute their illnesses to chemicals from BP's oil disaster.

Paul Doom, 22, from Navarre, Florida, was training in preparation to join the US Marines, until he became extremely ill from swimming in the Gulf of Mexico.

"I stopped swimming in July because I started having severe headaches that wouldn't go away," Doom told Al Jazeera. "But each time I went to the doctor they dismissed it."

In October, Doom began to have internal bleeding, but this too was dismissed by doctors. In November, when it worsened, he was given pain medications in the Emergency Room and was told it would pass. Less then three weeks after that, Doom collapsed with a seizure.

"Since then, I've had two blood tests for Volatile Organic Compounds [VOC's] which are in BP's oil and dispersants, and they both came back with alarmingly high levels," he said.


Since the onset of his symptoms, Doom has been dealing with ongoing internal bleeding, nose bleeds, bleeding from his ears, blood in his stool, headaches, severe diarrhea, two to five seizures per day, paralysis in his left leg and arm, and failing vision.

"A toxicologist that interpreted my blood VOC results told me they didn't know how I was alive," Doom explained. "My Hexane was off the charts, and I have 2 and 3 Methylpentane, Iso-octane, Ethylbenze, and mp-Xylene."

Wilma Subra, a MacArthur Fellow and chemist in Louisiana, has been testing the blood of BP cleanup workers and residents in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida. Subra tested Doom's blood and found high amounts of several VOC's.

"Ethylbenzene, mp-Xylene and Hexane are volatile organic chemicals that are present in the BP crude oil," Subra told Al Jazeera. "We're finding these in excess of the 95th percentile, which is the average for the entire nation. Sometimes we're finding amounts 5 to 10 times in excess of the 95th percentile."

Subra explained that there has been long enough exposure so as to create chronic impacts, that include "Liver damage, kidney damage, and damage to the nervous system. So the presence of these chemicals in the blood indicates exposure."

Testing by Subra has also revealed the chemicals are present "in coastal soil sediment, wetlands, and in crab, oyster and mussel tissues."

Staggering toll

Since January, at least 67 dead dolphins have washed ashore along the Gulf Coast, an event the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration declared as "an unusual mortality event". In the whole of 2010, 89 dolphin deaths were reported for the same area.

In January, a Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute chemist and colleagues reported that the toxic chemical dispersants BP used to sink its crude oil remained in the deep ocean in an oil and gas-laden plume that had still not degraded.

Also in January, Louisiana Senator AG Crowe wrote a letter to President Barack Obama expressing his deep concern about the toxic dispersants BP used, and according to Senator Crowe, continues to use along the Gulf Coast.

"Mr President, my concern is that THIS TOXIC AND DAMAGING CHEMICAL IS STILL BEING USED and it will compound the long-term damage to our state, our citizens, our eco-system, our economy, our seafood industry, our wildlife and our culture," the letter read.

"We will not be fooled in to believing that the oil and the toxins are gone. Because the toxic dispersants have been, and are still being used today, the oil is being forced downward in to the water columns and then carried endlessly around and about by the Gulf currents adversely affecting our environment."

Subra, the MacArthur Fellow, is alarmed by what she is finding in the people whose blood she is testing.

"Severe symptoms, lots of respiratory and cardiovascular problems, and skin lesions," she explained. "There is a lot of internal bleeding, and the chemicals cause this by disrupting the integrity of the red blood cells."

Subra said: "We're seeing the chemicals in different classes of people. Cleanup workers employed by BP, clean-up workers no longer employed, and we're seeing it in community members who come in contact with the crude by fishing or recreating in the Gulf."

Al Jazeera asked Subra what she thought the local, state and federal governments should be doing about the ongoing chemical exposures.

"There is a lack of concern by the government agencies and the [oil] industry." She said, "There is a leaning towards wanting to say it's all fixed and let's move on, when it's not. The crude oil is continuing to come on shore in tar mats, balls, and strings."

Subra continued: "So the exposure continues. There is still a large amount of crude in the marshes and buried on the beaches. As long as that pathway is there for exposure, these problems will continue quite a long time into the future."

A bunch of guinea pigs

Jo Billups is an environmental activist who has taken it upon herself to assist in the funding, along with her friend Michelle Nix, in the blood testing being carried out by Subra.

Working with the Louisiana Environmental Action Network and several doctors along the Gulf Coast, Billups and Nix have been holding workshops and helping sick people get their blood tested and find medical assistance.

"We have sick people from Apalachicola, Florida, to Grand Isle, Louisiana, AND IT'S NOT STOPPING and that's what's disturbing," Billups said. "The levels we are seeing are not dropping, and we're seeing new chemicals now. We gave some of our blood test results to [EPA head] Lisa Jackson. They know what is going on, and they are not doing anything about it."

"The saddest part is the children," Billups added. "We're seeing young children with extremely high levels of chemicals. We're altering our DNA and our bodies forever, We're a bunch of guinea pigs."

Jennifer Rexford, from Panama City, Florida, was an oil clean-up worker for BP.

"We were taken to clean up oil and tar balls with inadequate equipment," Rexford told Al Jazeera. "We regularly got oil all over us."

Rexford now has a staph infection that covers much of her body that she attributes to the chemicals in BP's oil she was cleaning up.

"Everyone I know of that I worked with are now having kidney problems, along with lots of other illnesses," Rexford, who has been to the hospital four times trying to find a solution to her infection, said. "My neighbor has a rash all over her body, and another clean-up worker I know found a lump in her breast a month ago. So when I started calling my co-workers, I realized that WE'RE ALL SICK."

"I have documentation and images SHOWING LESIONS IN MY BRAIN," Paul Doom said. "Lesions that are the same as lesions on the brains of marine life from the Exxon Valdez spill from marine necropsies. This is a life and death situation and a race against time."

Doom said the water and food along the Gulf Coast are not safe, and he is angry at the Obama administration.

"I would ask them why have they allowed this to happen," he said, "How can you live with yourself knowing you allowed this to happen and continue?"

Aguinaga feels betrayed as well.

"I feel stabbed in the back by my own country," he said, "I feel we are being dictated to by a foreign power. Maybe our president is not strong enough to stand up against them. I know money buys people, but they couldn't offer me enough money for the loss of my friend, and the stuff we're going through."

Aguinaga's prognosis for the future of Gulf Coast residents?

"We're all lab rats and we didn't even know it. We're waiting to see how it's going to turn out."

Gulf oil spill: Lisa Nelson dies…
March 8th, 2011 4:24 pm ET

There is sad news for Tampa Bay residents who have been following the story of one woman believed to have been victimized by the BP Gulf oil spill: Lisa Nelson. On March 7, 2011, Lisa Nelson passed away after battling a mysterious illness first diagnosed after she watched the Hunters Moon on September 22, 2010. Approximately four months ago, Lisa Nelson conducted an interview with Jerry Cope which is available on YouTube where she describe the mysterious condition that plagued her; she also revealed several large areas of bruising across her chest and torso. Her face and neck swelled three times their normal size…

Below is the youtube video of Lisa Nelson's interview with Jerry Cope.

BP Oil Spill Victims Sickened and Dying, Local Physicians Clueless


My reaction: Gulf spill sickness is wrecking lives and killing people.

1) BP's oil disaster last summer gushed at least 4.9 million barrels and at least 1.9 million gallons toxic dispersants into the Gulf of Mexico.

2) The Poly-aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) from the oil and dispersants are making people sick, and these sick people are dying.

3) Since the dispersants being added to the water make the oil water soluble, it is and coming down as rain, in addition to being in the water and beaches of the Gulf.

4) Pathways of exposure to the chemicals are inhalation, ingestion (eating gulf seafood), skin, and eye contact.

5) The oil/dispersants is causing sick people from Apalachicola, Florida, to Grand Isle, Louisiana, to experience:

A) pissing blood
B) "vomiting dark brown stuff"
C) skin lesions
D) lung damage
E) burning pain in the nose and throat
F) coughing/difficulty breathing
G) pulmonary edema
H) ongoing internal bleeding
I) cancer
J) liver damage
K) kidney damage
L) unconsciousness
M) bleeding from his ears
N) damage to the nervous system
O) seizures
P) paralysis (legs, arms, face, etc…)
Q) failing vision/blindness
R) brain lesions
S) death…

6) Toxic dispersants are still being used in gulf. The oil leak never stopped (ocean bed fracture beyond repair in the blowout), and dispersants are being used to make the problem "disappear from view".

7) The water and food along the Gulf Coast are not safe.


Conclusion: What do you think would happen to the bonds of the state of Louisiana and Florida if the full scale of the BP oil spill was known? What would happen to the rest of the municipal bond market? And what would happen to the treasury market if the municipal bond market collapsed?

Covering up the BP oil spill has unnaturally extended the life of US debt markets, at a terrible price.

Dead, Missing, Jailed – BP Whistle Blowers
Submitted by Lois Rain on May 2, 2011 – 3:12 pm11 Comments

Over the course of the past year, you’ve most likely come across strange stories regarding the tragic fates of those connected with the BP oil disaster. When compiled, the stories are all together shocking and disturbing. Is it possible that the nine deaths and others affected who were involved in different areas of disaster knowledge are just random coincidences? Check into the details and decide for yourself.

Of the 12 high profile people in question, 9 are mysteriously dead, 1 nearly died in a brutal assassination attempt, 1 is imprisoned under questionable charges, and another has simply disappeared. You can watch a video tutorial of the cases while you read the segments. Below that, you can follow the links to all the cases.

Not all of the people listed are directly related to the disaster, however, they are high profile truth tellers with different areas of expertise. Statistically speaking, it is unlikely that this many experts and activists would suddenly wind up dead within a year of the disaster. It is suspected that those who were indirectly connected with the event, may have had more knowledge or pull than originally thought.

If you know of any others, or updates in the current cases, please send them, along with a source to tips@healthfreedoms.org.

http://visionsgreen.com/blog/2011/09/06/new-10-mile-oil-slick-in-gulf-of-mexico-video-another-bp-oil-spill/

Reports of renewed leaking in the Macondo oil field, the site of last year’s Deepwater Horizon disaster. First, New Orleans Lawyer Stuart Smith reported that nearly 40 ships were hired by BP to conduct a boom-laying mission over the August 13th weekend. Next, nonprofit organizations On Wings of Care and Gulf Restoration Network conducted a joint flyover of the spill site, bringing back photographic evidence of fresh oil near the site of the Macondo well. This in turn prompted reporters from the Mobile Press-Register to hire a boat out to the site, where they found massive “globules” of oil rising to the surface, creating a growing sheen on the water.

Pilot Bonny Schumaker of On Wings of Care once again took to the air over the Gulf of Mexico, finding evidence of what appears to be a massive leak near the site of last year’s oil drilling disaster.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mlWKptW7 ... r_embedded[/url]
According to Schumaker, the oil “stretched for miles” with one continuous sheen stretching for nearly 10 miles. This contradicts BPs official story, which is that “none of this is true.”

It’s interesting then that Schumaker reports radio communication with a ship known as the Sarah Bordelon earlier this afternoon, who claimed they were gathering oil samples for BP (Marinetraffic.com confirms the location of the Sarah Bordelon within the vicinity of the Macondo).

“How can BP say it’s not there when they have a ship out there sampling it?” asked Shumaker.

Schumaker also reports calling the slick in to the National Response Center, though the U.S. Coast Guard has declined to comment for the time being.

Updates

Reported new evidence of a growing oil sheen in the Gulf of Mexico, originating near the site of last year’s Deepwater Horizon disaster. Bonny Schumaker of nonprofit group On Wings of Care took a flyover of the Gulf, photographing and shooting video of a 10 mile long by 4 mile wide oil slick extending along the surface. She also communicated via radio with two ships, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Okeanos Explorer and the Sarah Bordelon, allegedly hired by BP to collect samples of the new oil.

First, chemists Ed Overton and Scott Miles of Louisiana State University have confirmed for us that the oil found bubbling to the surface this week is a fingerprint match for BP’s Macondo well, which lies in Mississippi Canyon Block 252 of the Gulf of Mexico. “After examining the data, I think it’s a dead ringer for the MC252 oil, as good a match as I’ve seen,” said Overton. “My guess is that it is probably coming from the broken riser pipe or sunken (Deepwater Horizon) platform… However, it should be confirmed, just to make sure there is no leak from the plugged well.” Of course, BP officials are sticking to their story and have responded that “there is still no evidence that the oil came from the Macondo well.” Next, NOAA has received reports back from the Okeanos Explorer indicating that heavy amounts of dispersant had been found mixed with the oil (leading some to speculate that the Sarah Bordelon may have been doing more for BP than simply collecting oil samples).

U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer Bill Colclough confirmed that the oil sheen emanating from the area of the Macondo well was “too dispersed to recover” from the surface. “We received a report from the NOAA vessel Okeanos Explorer,” said Colclough. “They reported to us that (the oil) was dispersed and unrecoverable, whereupon we conducted an overflight to verify it.” BP official Curtis Thomas responded, stating that the oil “very well could be from natural seeps… What we are saying for sure is that it is not from our well head.” In the coming days, the Coast Guard, NOAA, and independent groups are expected to continue investigating the growing oil sheen as well as the area around the Macondo well.

Gulf Research Pilot Troubled by Oil Sighting in Macondo Prospect


It's been over 16 months since the BP oil disaster, now rebranded the Macondo oil "spill," or the Deepwater Horizon "spill."

The Financial Times reports that the Obama administration has approved the sale of new oil leases in the Gulf of Mexico. Media has not scrutinized the safety of this decision, as all eyes are on the sinking economy and the emerging Republican field for the 2012 election. The lease sale, set for December in New Orleans, was welcomed by oil industry interests.

But there is another set of eyes intimately familiar with the Gulf of Mexico. These keen eyes observed disturbing evidence that all is not well in the area impacted by the estimated 200 million gallons of crude oil that spewed into the ecosystem after the April 20, 2010 explosion of the wellhead that killed 11 and injured 17.

Bonny Schumaker, Ph.D. is an airline transport and commercial pilot, long-standing gold-seal FAA flight instructor, and worked for 22 years with NASA/JPL since receiving her doctorate in physics from the California Institute of Technology in 1985. She has been rescuing and rehabbing both domestic animals and wildlife for the past four decades as president and founder of On Wings of Care, Inc. Schumaker has also been flying her Cessna and documenting the health of the Gulf since the beginning of the spill. She took NBC News on a flyover 12 months ago and was featured on the "Today" show.

Late last month, Schumaker was doing an aerial survey of whale sharks in collaboration with scientists in surface vessels. An optimistic flight in search of healthy wildlife turned into despair as Schumaker not only found dolphins and leatherback sea turtles, but oil, and lots of it.

"In fact, we found so much oil out in the Macondo Prospect (about 15 miles from 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," Schumaker says. You can read more from her logs on her website.

2011 August 30

Gulf of Mexico

We flew today to find whale sharks, so that scientists who were out there in a boat could fit them with tags that would report their gps positions and ultimately tell us more about them. The seas were utterly calm, like glass. The bait balls were glistening everywhere as we flew to open seas south of Grand Isle about 100 miles. We were so optimistic! Alas, in over six hours of flying covering almost 600 miles, not a one was found today. Nor a single sperm whale. We found two huge pods of bottlenose dolphin, one with over 100 individuals, another with at least 75. And a couple of fine leatherback sea turtles. But between those sightings -- and sometimes uncomfortably close to them, all we found was what we are so very tired of seeing -- more and more OIL.

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!

why isn't this in the MSMs talking points

BP settles while Macondo 'seeps'

As BP pays billions in settlements, scientists are concerned about a persistent oil seep near the Macondo 252 well.



Dahr Jamail
The photos that go with the captions below, can be seen at this link: http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/featur ... 59762.html


A retired career physicist with NASA, Bonny Schumaker, now the owner and pilot of On Wings of Care, has logged more than 500 hours surveying the area of the seep in question

Since August of 2011, Schumaker has found a consistent approximately 35 kilometer long crescent-shaped slick of oil in an area 19 kilometers northeast of the Macondo well

From afar, the oil and oil sheen appear as wind patters atop the water surface, but as one nears the slick, silvery sheen and rainbow colours and the oil smell make clear what it is

While several dolphin and a sea turtle were visible in the area, Schumaker was concerned by the overall lack of visible wildlife, in an area that should normally have abundant marine life

Edward Overton, professor emeritus at Louisiana State University's environmental sciences department, examined data from oil samples taken from this area last September and confirmed that the oil is from the Macondo reservoir

Experts believe the oil is likely to be from a seep in the seabed, but there is debate about what caused the seep, as many believe it may well have been caused by BP's blowout well and the failed attempts to cap it during spring 2010

Dr Ira Leifer, a University of California scientist who is an expert on natural hydrocarbon oil and gas emissions from the seabed told Al Jazeera, "Because of the size and its location, there is a greater concern that should require a larger public investigation."

While BP and the Coast Guard have confirmed BP's cap on the Macondo well is not the source of this oil, the broader question posed by experts is that the oil giant's actions while sealing the well could have caused this seep
Dr Leifer's concerns are that if the seep increases in volume, "It could be a persistent, significant, continuous oil spill again, and that would require BP to go back and re-drill, and block off the pipeline even deeper than they already did, or else they would be liable for whatever the emissions are, forever, because it's not going to stop for a very long time".

New Orleans attorney Stuart Smith, who litigates against major oil companies, believes the burden of proof about where the oil is coming from lies on BP. "Our worst fears have proven true. We have a chronic leak scenario caused by the Macondo well, and it is time for the feds and BP to come clean and tell the American public the truth. Unless/until the government and BP explain in a verifiable manner what the source of this oil is, in my opinion any thoughts of settlement are way premature."

well it has been years now and the evidence has been mounting ... and it's irrefutable now ... perhaps this was/is the "watershed" event Dr Neruda talked about ... not to forget what FukUshima has done to the Pacific ...

Quote:
In 2007, BP, owned by a conglomerate of companies like the Carlyle group, Blackstone and others, which are in turn owned by such individuals as the families Rothschild, Rockefeller, Morgan, Carnegie, Schiff, Harriman and Warburg, formed an addition. There are some others, but those names should strike fear in all the hearts of decent men and women. These men own the world, for now.

On June 13, 2007(this is only the given date, the actual date is a corporate privacy matter) BP made a long-term research and development deal and an undisclosed equity investment into a company named Synthetic Genomics Inc. based in Rockville, Maryland. Synthetic Genomics was co-founded by Dr. J. Craig Venter to commercialize genomic-driven technologies. Genomics is the scientific study of the entire DNA sequence of an organism's genome. A genome is all the genetic information in the chromosomes of an organism, including its genes and DNA sequences.

This addition, sought to use the naturally occurring, oil eating bacteria found in the ground, usually in petroleum, and through DNA sequencing, created a natural organism composing of the genomes of several different varieties of oil eating bacteria. The goal was two-fold. One, create an organism to be injected into oil wells and start eating oil, in the process creating carbon dioxide gas which would pressurize the wells and improve the flow of gas and oil. This is MEOR, or microbial enhanced oil recovery, and 2 to better clean up or "eat" oil in case of spills.

They succeeded, and Venter filed patents under the company name JCVI.

2 exploratory wells were contracted in the GUlf of Mex. Transocean started the first well, in the mississippi canyon in Oct. 2009 but hurricane Ida damaged the rig. BP took over a year later and after ten days of drilling PERPENDICULARLY up under the North American Plate near Louisiana got high pressure and sea floor cracking. They applied to MMS and were allowed to just cap that disaster.

Next, they started the infamous well. On April 22, all hell broke loose as again, tremendous pressure and sea floor cracking occurred. We all know what happened next. The largest disaster in US history, but many events surround it, many I won't expound on until it's relavant.

Bear with me, please

In short, BP needed a new microbe. The old, natural ones just weren't enough to get the job done. So Venter played Dr. Frankenstien and by 2010, had created a synthetic bacterial organism with computer designed DNA that was self replicating. It has absolutely ZERO natural DNA. He called it Synthia. The tiny microbe contains added watermark chains to identify it as artificial. It is also, mindbogglingly, completely immune to antibiotics and has a voracious appetite for eating hydrocarbons. Or just carbon.

We are made of carbon, as is all life.

Anyway, this microbe they put in the place of the COREXIT used at the Exxon-Valdez spill. Numerous danger signs and warning bells were sounded by the EPA, OSHA and Coast Guard once BP began spraying "COREXIT" or Synthia all over the dang place. BP had safer dispersants and was even asked by the EPA to use JD2000 instead because it was much safer. BP said no. They didn't have enough, they said.

So BP sprays this [Censored] ALL OVER THE PLACE. The water, and the shoreline. Injected in deep underwater. All to "break up" the oil, which is ALL still there, BTW. BP's super oil eater wasn't eating oil, but it killed every living creature that came near it. Many, many sailors helping in the clean up got very sick. Some died.

This continued for some time. Massive, diverse and thorough kills of ocean going creatures quickly followed and soon, mammal and whale deaths.

You see, the antibiotic Immunity of Synthia is built into its artificial DNA, and Synthia can merge with other bacterial organisms to form, to use a cliche term, a super version of itself, whatever it may be.

Of particular note are Vibius Vulnificus and Necrotizing Fasicitis, both flesh eating bacteria that have been around since Moses and have always been treated with antibiotics. They are, or are becoming, completely immune to antibiotics and are killing many people along the gulf coast.

When these and other diseases augmented by Synthia are consumed into the body through eating seafood or ingesting through water, etc, Synthia causes, LITERALLY, NO BULLSHIT, the MELTING of the central nervous system, massive internal hemmoraging and multiple organ failure, mainly the liver and kidneys.

I spoke with Kathy Birren for about 3 hours yesterday. She was Floridas state representative during the spill, and the one who dared Obama to come on down for a big plate of gulf seafood, twice, after he made the remark in a public appearance that the gulf seafood was safe to eat. He refused. He finally did eat some seafood in Florida somewhere else, but it was actually frozen and brought from somewhere else, east coast or farm raised. It was 100% for sure not fresh Gulf Seafood. She told me so much, her and her husband and I don't want to betray her trust but this I will share. Many of her close friends are very ill. Very ill. She is very sick, her husband as well. Many, many have died.

They have lost the will to fight, almost. They have received threatning phone calls, surprise health department "inspections" only a couple of weeks apart, and I mean like, full-on anal searches of their business for the slightest violation.

She toured the Gulf Coast for three years with several others trying to raise awarness and she told me she finally realized people flat just don't care. They are too wrapped up in themselves to want to affect a real solution.

Riki Ott, is the marine toxicologist who supervised the Exxon Valdez spill, and the BP spill. An EXTREMELY knowledgeable woman, needless to say. I am speaking with her tomorrow. She is a close friend of Mrs. Birren. Recently, Mrs. Birren spoke with Mrs. Ott about the beaching and deaths of 37 pilot whales in, IIRC, Sarasota Fl, and Mrs. Ott said this will be what shortly be what happens to humans, because humans are mammals too and are affected similarly, as far as internally.

Mrs. Birren's husband is a fisherman by trade, for over 30 years, and he has open, raw ulcers all over him, lung issues with blockage and a bad cough. They told me every fisherman they know, which is a [Censored]. ton. almost ALL have the ulcerous lesions too, or the internal version. Blood from the rectum, urine and vomit.

The career shrimpers story I found appalling. They refused to go out and catch shrimp to sell for thier OWN FAMILIES LIVELIHOOD, because they knew the shrimp were not safe to eat. Most had tumors, or no eyes, or extra legs and all were filled inside with black oil.

BP told them that the EPA had a new test to determine if the seafood was safe. They simply just smelled it. If it smelled ok, it was good to go, and to go back to work, they were clear to resume shrimping, never mind the missing eyes, extra legs and penzoil filling. When the shrimpers refused on grounds that they would not deliver such VISIBLY toxic shrimp to their customers, BP CUT THEIR EMERGENCY FUNDING on the grounds that the shrimpers refused to go back to work after the "smell test" was instituted to determine the safety of their catch.

ADDENDUM:
There are two very significant topics, which have been not been discussed in this report, that beg for acknowledgement and further attention in light of the title:
The Gulf of Mexico is Dying
Both of these problems are highly consequential and therefore merit separate papers in order to give them the treatment they deserve, if we are to understand why the GOM is slowly dying. Until those papers are completed, we offer the following short summaries:

#1 The wanton and indiscriminate use of the dispersant, Corexit, turned an extremely serious regional disaster into an unmitigated global catastrophe.

How so? The dispersants Corexit 9500 and 9527 both served to interact with the oil in such a way that much of it sank to the bottom. It also caused much dispersed oil to be held in suspension within the water column, as well as carried with the currents to and fro in amounts which can only be guessed. There is an emerging consensus that, because of the overwhelming volume of Corexit which was dispensed throughout the GOM, the Loop Current, which has historically guaranteed the flow of the warm Gulf waters into the Gulf Stream Current, has been fundamentally altered.

The most obvious consequence was to profoundly slow down the turnover of water into and out of the GOM. By curtailing this natural, rejuvenative process, the Gulf has become a more stagnant body of water, with significantly less opportunity to cleanse itself. Even the normal hurricane pattern in the GOM slackened precipitously this past hurricane season, thereby diminishing much churning and mechanical action which can be helpful to the natural breakdown of petroleum and its many byproducts.

Of course, the real unknown here is how dramatic and lasting the effects a stalled Loop Current will have on the Gulf Stream’s influence on the weather of Great Britain, Continental Europe and the contiguous land masses. By many accounts the recent meteorological developments, especially in Northern Europe, are being viewed with great apprehension about what the future weather patterns will bring? Many are concerned that a tipping point has already arrived and that this sea change will irrevocably transform a way of life.

What else do we know about Corexit from an environmental health perspective?

How many times have we all heard that dispersed oil is at least four times more toxic than oil alone? Here are the test results from the EPA study, as well as the EPA link:

(1) 10.72 parts per million (ppm) of oil alone will kill 50% of the fish test species in a normal aquatic environment within 96 hours.

(2) 25.20 parts per million of dispersant (Corexit 9500) alone will kill 50% of the fish test species in a normal aquatic environment within 96 hours.

(3) 2.61 parts per million of dispersed oil (Corexit-laden) alone will kill 50% of the fish test species in a normal aquatic environment within 96 hours.

National Contingency Plan Product Schedule Toxicity and Effectiveness Summaries

“Crude oil has proven toxicity at 1 part per million, with constituents like benzene exhibiting genotoxicity in the parts per billion range. The dispersants have made the oil “disappear,” according to the mainstream media, and yet we have marine toxicology documents PROVING that the dispersants PREVENT the natural break…down of some constituents of the oil, e.g. the lesser soluble hydrocarbons such as naphthalene.” (Per Gulf Oil Spill Truth)

Not only is the dispersed oil much more toxic, it is now virtually impossible to remediate in its current micronized or nano-sized state. Disappeared they did to the oil, and so did they to the various technologies and methodologies which would have been effective in cleaning up oil alone. Now we are left with a predicament that requires a form of mitigation which must be conceived, before it can be tried and tested.

In the meantime the entire GOM food chain (including those who continue to eat the seafood) is concentrating these newly formed toxic byproducts in their tissues, the effects of which will gradually wend their way through the bodies of each and every organism that is exposed to them. Just how poisonous to life dispersed oil is we may not know for years, nor does any government-funded research institution seem to be in a hurry to find out!

Both Corexit 9500 and 9527 were sprayed liberally for many months both on the GOM surface, as well as undersea. The officially reported amount is shown below; the covert spraying continues to this very day in volumes which can only be determined by reviewing the disbursement records at Nalco Holding Company. The photo above (Fig. 137-06) , in addition to much anecdotal evidence, unequivocally demonstrates continued dispersant use up to this very day, which therefore indicates a much higher volume used throughout the GOM.

Surface dispersant used: 1, 072,514 gallons
Subsea dispersant used: 771,272 gallons
Total dispersant used: 1,843,786 gallons

Consider what Wikipedia has to say about 9527: “Corexit 9527, considered by the EPA to be an acute health hazard, is stated by its manufacturer to be potentially harmful to red blood cells, the kidneys and the liver, and may irritate eyes and skin.[14][24] The chemical 2-butoxyethanol, found in Corexit 9527, was identified as having caused lasting health problems in workers involved in the cleanup of the Exxon Valdez oil spill.[25] According to the Alaska Community Action on Toxics, the use of Corexit during the Exxon Valdez oil spill caused people “respiratory, nervous system, liver, kidney and blood disorders”.[16] Like 9527, 9500 can cause hemolysis (rupture of blood cells) and may also causeinternal bleeding.”[4]

The following link offers a more in-depth discussion of how this unprecedented mixture of massive amounts of dispersant, oil, methane and radioactive hydrocarbons have forever altered the energetics of the Gulf of Mexico. It is then much easier to understand the unanticipated and immediate stalling of the Loop Current in light of these critical changes to the GOM fundamentals.

Environmental and Health Impacts of the BP Gulf Oil Spill

#2 The deeper the geological source of the hydrocarbons, the more radioactive isotopes present in the oil and gas.

That hydrocarbons pulled from the bowels of the earth have a scientifically verified radioactive component(s) is the dirty little secret of the Oil & Gas Industry. So secret in fact that, if it were to get out, this single scientific fact would seal the fate of the entire industry. It also undergirds the correct understanding that oil and gas are both abiotic in nature and abiogenic in origin – facts which cast a refreshing light on the notion of Peak Oil.
Yes, we have reached Peak Oil, but not because of the untenable Fossil Fuel Theory which has been known to be false by the Oil and Gas Industry since its inception. It has been asserted that the Macondo Prospect sits on a reservoir of abiotic oil the size of Mount Everest, one of the two largest batholiths with proven oil and gas mega-reserves in the GOM. However, that doesn’t make it economically feasible or technologically prudent to extract; nor is it smart to engage in such utter folly, as the sinking of the Deepwater Horizon dramatically demonstrated.



Soon after the BP Gulf Oil Spill began there appeared a headline which was more telling than them all:

“They’ve Literally Punched A Hole Into Hell: We Need A Crash Alternative Energy Program Now, Assuming We Even Survive”

Mantle-generated hydrocarbons come from very young geological formations deep in the earth, and are the product of extremely powerful geo-thermal forces. The presence of radioactive isotopes such as uranium, thorium, radium show up in much greater concentrations the deeper the well bore is drilled into the earth’s crust, and are ubiquitous throughout the mantle. Therefore, the hydrocarbon constituents, which are actually found in the interstitial spaces, porous rock formations and quaternary sediments and are scattered everywhere because of their liquid and gaseous states, exist within and around this highly radioactive environment.
How radioactive is the hydrocarbon effluent upsurging from the wells in the GOM that are drilled at 12, 15, 18, 20, 25 or 30,000 feet through the crust and into the mantle? Here’s a link to the American Petroleum Institute website that will partially answer this question:
Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (NORM) in North American Oilfields

Here’s another link to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency website page entitled Radiation Protection that shows just how serious this matter has become from an environmental health standpoint.

Oil and Gas Production Wastes (Naturally-Occurring Radioactive Materials identified by the EPA)

Whenever there is a higher concentration of methane gas in the mix of oil/gas that comes out of any given well, it means that:

“The more methane that is present reflects the amount of Uranium and Thorium in the oil reserve. The deeper the oil, the younger the radiological decay is that produces helium.”

“Helium is a naturally occurring gas formed in oil reserves. So common that helium detectors 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 smaller 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.”



“The energy coming from uranium and thorium decay is thought to be the most significant energy source inside the earth,” Tolich said. “So this is the driving engine for things such as tectonic plate movements, volcanoes and earthquake. We are looking for neutrinos, particularly electron antineutrinos … coming from uranium and thorium decay inside the earth. The uranium and thorium is distributed all through the earth in the mantle.” (Per http://oilandgasleaks.wordpress.com/201 ... p-blowout/)

Uranium, thorium neutrino research could determine Earth’s age, energy production



From our many discussions with those knowledgeable at the OSATF (Oil Spill Academic Task Force) here in Tallahassee, FL, it became evident early on in the spill that the percentage of methane of the total hydrocarbon composition was quite high. Some observed that it appeared to very slowly decrease, yet remained high right up until the capping of the gusher. Hence, we know that this oil spill in the GOM has a very definite radioactive component which must be addressed.

Please understand that we are not suggesting that the fish will start glowing with radiation; only that long term exposure to low level radioactivity has its obvious consequences to all living organisms. In the meantime, those living on the GOM coastline ought to introduce copious amounts of seaweed (e.g. kelp) into their diets.

Where it concerns the release of radioactivity into the waters, there is simply no way to put this genie back into the bottle within the current scientific paradigm … unless there is alchemical science yet to be revealed or new age technologies to be developed.

As we said in the introduction, “It is with great regret that we file this report.”

May we all do our part in spreading the awareness of these realities, so that many more of US will be in the position to make informed decisions about where we live, work and play, what we eat, our health and safety, our livelihoods, our families, our communities … … … and our shared environment known as Mother Earth.
