What is Really Going On – Oil Spill in the Gulf
The Gulf of Mexico Oil Disaster- What took place, Why, Who was responsible and the long term Economical and Ecological Implications.
Many opinions and theories have come out due to the natural oil spill disaster. Our Government has in all actuality stayed quiet muffled about the incident and the Media has kept news of it scrambled and with many holes along the way. Why has this taken place? Well I hope to answer that or at the very least give you the insight of what I have uncovered through research of facts as well as bringing my knowledge and experience to help put together what everyone needs to know. Some would say this was due to lack of safety inspections and the neglect of the big oil industry. Some would say it was the result of a “Terrorist” attack or the act of war by North Korea. Others might tell you it was an inside job for monetary gain. Some will also say it was done as part of the Global Elite agenda for depopulation. Another theory you might here is that it is simply a matter of firming the grip on societal control. I am here to tell you that in a way these statements are all correct. To explain everything I am going to cover would take a lot more words than I am going to use and at some point if needed I will explain on record further with all of you each point and concern I am about to explain. So let’s begin with the time line. First of all here is an article of the timeline of events since day one. http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE6482L220100510 Now after you have reviewed the timeline let’s fill in the gaps of the first day and even prior to the disaster happening. 20 hours prior to the explosion the company Halliburton http://www.halliburton.com/ which is owned by famous war criminal Dick Cheney was on the rig to do some maintenance and support cement work on the drilling. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/05/10/gulf-spill-halliburton-co_n_570484.html I find this interesting due to the similarity with the “security” company and maintenance that had occurred in the World Trade Center just before the “attack” when for 8 hours surveillance cameras were shut off. Next we have the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) on the oil rig 2 hours before the explosion doing a surprise inspection. Now this can happen.
The BLM is authorized to do surprise inspections on any facility on Federal land or in US operated waters. However there seems to be a bit of questioning as far as proper identification of the entire inspection team plus to have this occur 2 hours prior just doesn’t sit well with me. What were they really doing there and how come the BLM hasn’t made any official statements? Don’t you think that if they were doing a safety inspection one VERY important thing they might want to check are the mandatory safety blow-back Valves that prevent something like this from occurring? The truth is that that wouldn’t have mattered anyway because an oil rig worker who has remained anonymous has stated that the blow-back valves were the wrong kind for the rigs requirements. Now who knows how long it will be before we find out for sure since all the surviving oil rig workers are on a gag-order by BP, which they were all forced to sign. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHj97pvEHkM One other interesting fact I need to add is that these offshore oil rigs are set up with an emergency alarm system that notifies all proper response teams like the US Coast Guard.
The only way proper emergency notification could not have happened would be either due to faulty equipment that wasn’t properly inspected or the equipment itself was disabled. At this point it could go either way. But here’s the REALLY interesting part most media neglects to say. “A crew member from an oil platform that sank off the Louisiana coast Thursday reported an initial explosion three hours before the rig went up in flames in a second, larger explosion, the Coast Guard said.” Refer to this article- http://www.palmbeachpost.com/money/ap-oil-rig-reported-explosion-3ap-oil-rig-reported-explosion-3-hours-before-598217.html Now what I want to know is how the hell does there become a 3 hour gap between first and second explosion. If I was on the demolition team I suppose I would want time to get away and for the accelerate to take it’s course for optimum damage. Is that farfetched? Not really considering the details in planning this obviously had. Now most of you are aware of the rest of the timeline that is full of mistakes, overlooking details and just plane diversion of the truth. So let’s breakdown some key points. I spoke of Haliburton and BLM and there involvement so let’s now talk about the other key players. Transocean is a global company that builds Oil Rigs and guess what? They built Deep Horizon. See for yourself – http://www.deepwater.com/fw/main/Deepwater-Horizon-56C17.html?LayoutID=17 Now this global company has been in the business for a long time yet this is the product they put out? If Toyota has a faulty floor mat and years later they have a recall because of a few auto accidents as a result of that floor mat Toyota is held responsible, yet Transocean is just about in the shadows and even said they are putting a cap on how much money they will spend on clean-up. Hey Transocean how about those “faulty” blow-back valves? Starting to see this rabbit hole goes deep? British Petroleum has done some foolish stuff in the past. Let’s have a look- http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/09/business/09bp.html This oil disaster though is by far the worst and so far here has been their ideas and attempts to contain the oil.
They made an attempt to cover it with a 4 story containment metal box which failed.
Then they had some “top scientists” come up with the idea to plug the hole (if you didn’t know there are actually 5 separate leaks) with golf balls, rubber tires and rope. Excuse me? Did someone forget to remind them that 100,000 barrels of oil that is spewing out everyday? With that kind of pressure behind it that idea of theirs is just plane stupid.
These oil companies are also suppose to have onshore emergency backup plans and equipment. Yet BP seemed to almost sit on their thumbs for quite a while before taking pathetic action.
Then they went from stupid to insanity. Here’s why I say that. British Petroleum own a company called NALCO http://www.nalco.com/applications/corexit-technology.htm That company makes COREXIT. COREXIT is a highly toxic oil dispersant that even as you read this is being flooded onto the Gulf via ship, plane and even on shore through high pressure hoses. Here’s a little fact about COREXIT- The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has pre-approved both for such emergencies.
The effectiveness of Corexit EC9500A is rated as 55 percent, and the effectiveness of Corexit EC9527A is rated as 63 percent, according to the EPA. That ranks them behind 12 other dispersants (out of 18) that the agency has determined do a better job dispersing oil while protecting marine life. As for toxicity, the EPA rates both products as either comparable in toxicity or 10 to 20 times more toxic than the 12 others on the list. This week, BP chief executive Tony Hayward told The Guardian newspaper that the amount was “tiny in relation to the total water volume” in the Gulf. Reliance on dispersants, especially in response to a disaster on par with the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska is understandable, say environmental groups. What they don’t understand is why marine ecosystems are being sacrificed to save coastal habitats, a trade-off that wouldn’t be an issue if there were less toxic solutions. http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/2010/0515/In-Gulf-oil-spill-how-helpful-or-damaging-are-dispersants So in all actuality this dispersant is causing more wide spread harm to the Gulf than the oil itself at the moment. Plus the fact that in 1967 an oil spill happened off the southern California coast. Do you know what was used primarily to clean it up? Hay, straw and Kentucky Bluegrass. Sound familiar to anyone? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k5SxX2EntEo Yet we won’t see that being payed for because BP is making profit off the dispersant. So now you know most of the players in this disaster, but there are a couple more. I can only speculate due to the disappointing behavior of Obama that he himself is either aware of the REAL truth behind this or he himself is under gag order. Consider this before you side with Obama that perhaps he has no choice but to stay quiet. He may very well be aware and this is why. He may deny it but I have found enough to convince me that BP gave Obama more campaign money than any other single politician they have given to in 20 years which in that 20 year time BP has given $3.5 million. Plus let’s not forget the $15.9 million they gave just last year to influence the Energy policy. http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0510/36783.html Could this be why since the disaster occurred 27 waivers of inspection have been authorized by our Government to offshore rigs in the Gulf? http://www.mcclatchydc.com/2010/05/07/93761/despite-spill-feds-still-giving.html So even with all of this our so called government does this! This little known fact may come to a surprise to you all as well. As many of you know Goldman Sachs has been under hot financial pressure by really the same guys in the same club. So to “fix” their problem they decided to bet against oil rig Deep Horizon. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/andy-borowitz/goldman-sachs-reveals-it_b_558774.html This took place only a few days prior and that bet was from what I was told by a source $134 million. May not sound like a lot but put it this way. It’s like a reverse bid on the stock market. If a product fails you actually make money. Bets like this can make 10 times the amount and more. My guess Goldman Sachs is cashing in. Now you know a brief description of the the key players and time line. I could get into more of it but it’s a lot to write at this time. I will explain in further detail after my next wave of investigation. So let’s move on to the next issue with this disaster. With every great disaster comes change and the birth of new policies and even government agencies. This has taken place for a long time but let’s go fairly current. 9/11 was the birth of the Department of Homeland Defense, Transportation Security Administration and the PATRIOT Act. Hurricane Katrina gave FEMA far more involvement in Civil emergency response and was really the final launch pad for certain facilities with many coffins on standby. That brings us to the Deep Horizon oil rig disaster.
The Obama Administration suddenly out of nowhere pops out a 2000 page document (which I am trying to get a copy of) that states the creation of 2 new policing agencies, one to police offshore oil rigs and the other to handle matters right alongside the oil companies. So apparently what we had before wasn’t good enough?! http://www.mcclatchydc.com/2010/05/11/93928/feds-announce-new-agency-to-police.html This is all coming down to some very serious issues for us all. Like I said to some of you about this disaster it will effect more lives than Pearl harbor and 9/11 combined AND will also damage plants, marine life, birds, humans, plants, crops and even drinking water. Is that a bit farfetched? Think again my friends. Let me explain the following. Marine life- the Gulf and the rest of the Worlds oceans have 3 main sources of food that is the very foundation for the Marine Life food chain. I am talking about Phytoplankton, Plankton and Krill. Phytoplankton are a major food source for anemones, coral and more of the seabed life. Phytoplankton depends on growing and multiplying by Photosynthesis. Between the ever growing oil sheen and the underwater oil plume this Phytoplankton will die on a large scale do to a lack of essential sunlight. Krill and Plankton are a vital food source as well for everything from Shrimp to Whales and many in-between are effected by the loss of them. In fact for the first time in quite a while grey whales are being seen in parts of the Atlantic ocean thought to be void of them. This poses another problem which is that whales who normally make the Atlantic their home now have to compete which in turn will decrease the amount of food for them. We have already seen dolphins washing up on shore dieing from toxins, suffocation and a lack of food. In case you didn’t know dolphins and whales each have a purpose being on this planet and if that balance gets tampered with we are in for a world of trouble. I promise you that. Now let’s look at the oil itself. First of all we have 5 holes the oil is spewing from at a massive rate. This is causing massive under pressure below the seabed. Erosion is happening but we don’t know how fast. Plus with massive amounts of methane crystals forming which isn’t a good thing either we are looking at a potential volcanic type eruption. Once that happens the Gulf will indeed turn black killing everything in it. Currently we are dealing with this new problem of the thick crude oil, plume that has formed beneath the water surface and is making its way to the Gulf northern currents. This means if it gets caught up in it we will see it round Florida and make it’s way up the eastern seaboard. When crude oil floats on the surface of seawater something takes place. It begins to emulsify. That basically means it becomes like a sea foam except with oil. Here’s the danger with that. We are going to be reaching hurricane season before we know it in the Caribbean and I know how they work so imagine this. I must remind you this is the worst case scenario. Hurricanes pick up water on the surface of the ocean. This emulsified oil will be picked up. This means islands and even coastal towns in the US will get engulfed with this oil. Look outside right now and imagine every tree, car, building, fountain and everything else covered in a light layer of this oil. It is possible. Not to mention the issue of this dispersant they are using which is highly toxic as well.
Then this poses the problem of acid rain. COREXIT and crude oil mixed in rain water is what could happen. Besides the obvious of the massive amounts of jobs being lost, increase in seafood, most likely a bump up in taxes and gas going up here is another issue we need to consider. Drinking water and coastal food crops. I spent a lot of years on ships and know how water purifications work very well. First we have what is called an Oil Water Separator. This is to separate oil out of bilge water. It works well but not 100%. In fact in US Coast Guard and EPA regulations a certain thousands part per million is allowed in the water when being discharged overboard. Evaporators and ROs (Reverse Osmosis) which are used to make seawater into drinking water have difficulties when dealing with oil. Unless our government REALLY picks up the pace on this disaster and cleanup we are looking at yet another huge problem. Once the oil and dispersants reach the shores, inner bays and even rivers where there are pumping stations to plants that purify water for drinking and watering food crops we are looking at contamination. I know this sounds horrible but it’s the absolute truth my friends. Make no mistake the worst is yet to come. It has already been predicted that if this oil disaster is not contained 100% soon it could have an adverse effect on 1/3 of our worlds oceans and if that happens guess what is next. I have discussed a lot in this statement and to be honest I could discuss a lot more but quite simply I am mentally exhausted. However this needed to be said to all of you. This by no means was meant to cause panic but simply to put things in a better perspective so you all know what steps we need to take to fight this and go after who is truly at fault. You are all in my thoughts and protection. Thank you.
