PostSubject: The Oil Spill   Mon 03 May 2010, 5:50 pm

Need I say more?

I still have my doubts about the Iceland eruption. Not the actual event but how they managed it. And now this. Reports range from the pipe rupturing when the rig toppled all the way to N Korea using torpedoes. I just saw and image showing the spill covering most of the gulf. That is of course if that is what's really happening. They can say anything, doctor maps, present eye witnesses, oil soaked birdies you name it to support their story. Seems to me they already cleared out LA pretty well after the levee breach. I've read woo woo stuff elsewhere predicting a huge diaspora that is to happen due to an event. Maybe they're going to give the gulf sates to China. Just thinking out loud...

The PTB never waste a crisis. We're in the problem phase now I've heard reports of SWAT teams on rigs (whatever that means) but I haven't seen much managing of the reaction other than soft shoeing the severity of the gusher in the media. I wonder if they'll EVER get this thing capped...

So folks, what will be the glorious overlord's solution to this one?

All of our marvellous science and technology is completely stumped on
this one.

How do you 'cap' a well under immensely high pressure 5000 feet below
the ocean surface with a huge oil rig flipped over it---with unknown
quantities of high pressure oil in reserve?

Well---we wanted oil---we got oil...

Words fail....

More cheerful observations from the Time Monks

George Ure Saturday:

The Oil Mess

12 days into the oil rig 'accident' events continue to evolve and
weather is slowing down efforts to contain things, we have two
interesting items to report that are not in the MSM yet...OK, three
then.

1. While there are many reports on the 'net that the rig disaster was
an attack by a North Korean mini-sub, and other such fanciful things, we
have heard that a supply ship arrived just before the explosions and it
was reported to be 'manned by all new people, nobody aboard was from
the 'usual supply crew'. This purported industry source continues:
there were a total of 14 explosions and these could have been cutting
charges. Moreover, the shut off valve below the surface (5000 feet
down) on the seabed is not longer controllable. Still, lots of disinfo
and speculation scampering around the netosphere. While this is bad, it
gets worse.

2. A reader who is an engineer of considerable experience says watch
this one evolve carefully because it is destined to continue to grow and
he shares this long (but worthy explanation why:

"Heard your mention of the oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico this
morning, and you (and most everyone else except maybe George Noory) are
totally missing the boat on how big and bad of a disaster this is.
First fact, the original estimate was about 5,000 gallons of oil a
day spilling into the ocean. Now they're saying 200,000 gallons a day.
That's over a million gallons of crude oil a week!
I'm engineer with 25 years of experience. I've worked on some big
projects with big machines. Maybe that's why this mess is so clear to
me.
First, the BP platform was drilling for what they call deep oil.
They go out where the ocean is about 5,000 feet deep and drill another
30,000 feet into the crust of the earth. This it right on the edge of
what human technology can do. Well, this time they hit a pocket of oil
at such high pressure that it burst all of their safety valves all the
way up to the drilling rig and then caused the rig to explode and sink.
Take a moment to grasp the import of that. The pressure behind this oil
is so high that it destroyed the maximum effort of human science to
contain it.
When the rig sank it flipped over and landed on top of the drill
hole some 5,000 feet under the ocean.
Now they've got a hole in the ocean floor, 5,000 feet down with a
wrecked oil drilling rig sitting on top of is spewing 200,000 barrels of
oil a day into the ocean. Take a moment and consider that, will you!
First they have to get the oil rig off the hole to get at it in
order to try to cap it. Do you know the level of effort it will take to
move that wrecked oil rig, sitting under 5,000 feet of water? That
operation alone would take years and hundreds of millions to accomplish.
Then, how do you cap that hole in the muddy ocean floor? There just is
no way. No way.
The only piece of human technology that might address this is a
nuclear bomb. I'm not kidding. If they put a nuke down there in the
right spot it might seal up the hole. Nothing short of that will work.
If we can't cap that hole that oil is going to destroy the oceans of
the world. It only takes one quart of motor oil to make 250,000 gallons
of ocean water toxic to wildlife. Are you starting to get the magnitude
of this?
We're so used to our politicians creating false crises to forward
their criminal agendas that we aren't recognizing that we're staring
straight into possibly the greatest disaster mankind will ever see.
Imagine what happens if that oil keeps flowing until it destroys all
life in the oceans of this planet. Who knows how big of a reservoir of
oil is down there.
Not to mention that the oceans are critical to maintaining the
proper oxygen level in the atmosphere for human life.
We're humped. Unless God steps in and fixes this. No human can. You
can be sure of that.

3. The third thing to bring attention to is the predictive linguistics
discussion of the 'blue flue" in the latestShape of Things to Come
report of what's ahead for the world's oceans. In particular, what
strikes me is that while some of the focus is on the possibility of
methane hydrate releases later in the year, the spelling in the report
is 'flue' (and in upward conveyance, not 'flu' and is sickness per se).

"This [big clue methane related] incident then goes onto cause a
[big stink] within TPTB [minion class] {ed note: most notably the CFR -
Council on Foreign Relations}. Not only are humans and other life
directly impacted by the large [clouds of drifting complex methane
housing gas] but the mere [release] of the quantity to be seen causes
the TPTB and their [minion class] to go [apeshit] trying to [locate (a
believable) scenario] to explain the [blue flue events(s)].

I'll grant you that the methane and oil gurgling out of the Gulf of
Mexico (GOM) right now is not methanehydrate but rather compressed
methane, but around here, that's close enough especially when the 'blue
flue' to the surface has been destroyed., Curious how just a little
spelling like this can tip us off that we've got something of a serious
hit developing.

The latest trajectory map out of NOAA which should be updated over the
weekend looks like this....in a word: Grim...

We hear - again from people who are reliable sources, but who we won't
name in order to keep them from getting fired, is that there are a
couple of parishes (county equivalents) in Louisiana which are preparing
evacuation plans because people are being made sick by the smell of the
oil and gas being blown onshore.

Looking ahead to Sunday through Tuesday, we'd expect as this grows that
there will be emergency operation centers set up and some moving of
people to begin, which would then feed in to the Diaspora meta data
layer of Cliff's work.

Not to be glum, but you can see most likely how this all starts to tie
together?

We will be topping off our 'investment grade diesel reserves and getting
our additional solar panels ordered this week, so as to hit the next
level of energy independence before the global impacts come into focus
over the next month or two.

I have not followed any of the news reports on this story, but is it possible that they're going to let this disaster run for quite some time, and become infinitely more horrific?

It seems to me now that they've secured total system control, that they have to convince the public that we are killing the planet and therefore drastic action is required. I see this as being very similar to dropping Atomic bombs on Japan and than months later publishing articles in major newspapers stating that humanity much amalgamate into One World or risk becoming No World. In both cases they create the problem, convince the public that the problem is the public's fault, and then publish pre-planned solutions that they want the public to accept.

So, I now see this being a continuation of the release of the nihilists. This is the front end of endless global catastrophes that will be blamed on the public in order to convince the public that "drastic" global changes are required. Hence, they do NOT want to solve this current oil spill issue, and will milk-it for all of the promotional value they can.

I'm sorry to say this, but I fear this is ONLY the beginning of a long list of planned "events", with each growing more and more impactful and ugly.

We're literally in the hands of pure evil now. Hold on tight.

The Summer OPs are in full swing now. Seems every year they get worse and worse, especially now that it appears they are deploying the environmental catastrophe meme. I think we have a long long way to go..... and I still think their craziness will backfire.

http://smirkingchimp.com/thread/h-c-jack-shaftoe/28558/rationalizing-the-bp-oil-spill-the-picture-is-beginning-to-be-framed

For the last week mainstream media has carried countless news updates
of the latest heroic and cutting edged technological effort regarding
the “big dome” that will be used to capture the a majority of the
leaking oil so it can be pumped to the surface, separated from seawater
and then, well we have not been told the disposition thereafter.

We have also not been told how they will separate this particular
grade of crude that easily emulsifies in water and what kind of
chemicals will be used to do this, if any, and what happens to the
chemicals, and what is the extraction rate, and what percentage of the
oil stays emulsified in the seawater and what do they plan to do with
the seawater after.

These seem to be relevant and logical questions given that the leak
is not stopped and merely being somewhat isolated for “further
processing”. How long will this procedure last, IF all goes “to plan”
and what about those billions of gallons of “separated” seawater that is
still contaminated? Is the structure "watertight" and once in place the
ocean water pumped out and the dome then only containing 100% leaking
oil?
Why are these crucial details not covered?

By the way, how many hundreds of thousands of gallons of that toxic
dispersant chemical have they used and how is that going to affect this
“extraction of dispersed and emulsified” oil from seawater?

Sure contain the leak but what about what has already been spilled?
Who will verify that what we are told is happening really is? Who
will oversee this leak containment "solution" if we are told by BP it is
working?
We have been presented about as much technically verifiable
information about the “holistic” containment, mitigation, “clean up”,
and neutralization methods and materials being used as alchemists
provided naysayers in the 18th century on extracting gold from lead.

Just last night we were provided with a steady stream of “hot news
updates” , one after the other, on the almost hourly progress of
lowering the first massive dome and told of the NASA-like challenge this
poses nearly equivalent to getting a man to the moon.


Wow, these big oil folks are good because what it took NASA ten years
to do what they have expedited in just a few weeks.

Today, in perusing the same news sites and looking for an update of
progress about this ongoing, nail-biting, wait at the edge of your seat,
biggest news story in the world event, I found a few lines of status
were buried in a story about how the failure occurred.

However, there are several related stories filled with propaganda
that can be summarized as follows:
“Gulf oil spill ruining vibe on `redneck Riviera'”,
“Damn, partying on the gulf coast beaches has got me worried now and
the economic impact could be terrible”
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100507/ap_on_bi_ge/us_oil_spill_redneck_riviera
“Gulf spill reminds America: The era of 'easy oil' is over”,
“Hey, we love our petro-chemical lifestyle and economy, alternatives
all have problems, we got to go where the oil is, get used to
environmental catastrophe people its part of the bargain.”
http://news.yahoo.com/s/mcclatchy/20100507/wl_mcclatchy/3498640
“Bubble of methane triggered rig blast”,
“Hey, shit happens and nothing seems to have worked as it should but
things usually don’t go wrong and oh by the way progress on the dome is
so far according to plan but a lot could still go wrong.”
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100508/ap_on_bi_ge/us_gulf_oil_spill;
“Oil spill may endanger human health, officials say”
For those of us old enough to remember the nuclear threat of the Cold
War days the best summary of official comments relative to “human
health threats” can be compared to how we were told to respond to a
nuclear attack, “Duck and cover”.
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100507/ap_on_re_us/us_gulf_oil_spill_health_effects
“More of Gulf closed to fishing because of spill”

This is barely a new article it is so short yet the biggest indicator
of what is to come and the magnitude of the future issue.

I will leave the reader to read the articles and put these news
components, along with the context, language, and apparent “message”
into a cohesive framework and draw your own conclusions regarding “how”
we can expect the ultimate outcome of this whole disaster to be framed
for public viewing.
If containment fails that is just part of the risk of going for the
“hard stuff”. If the domes work, even though we do not know anything
about what “works” means technically speaking, BP will be heroic and
have “stemmed” an environmental catastrophe of epic proportions even
though we already have one. The short term human health risks discussed
will “go away” and the long term more crucial impacts will never be
discussed. Tourism will fall off for awhile but eventually humans will
return as long as they can’t “see or smell” anything and wallow in a
toxic environment as long as they can party. Yes, and even the
minuscule numbers of marine life whose DNA allow them that edge of
survival and can suck in the toxins, concentrate them, and survive and
reproduce will eventually be consumed again because that’s what people
do.

Hell, life goes on… at least for awhile.

The silence and gobbledegook on this is extreme, even for the notorious MSM. Very upsetting, that they are just dancing around this and we have no reliable news.

Offshore staff
05/10/2010


HOUSTON – BP officials today explained plans going forward to deal with the oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico following the explosion and sinking of Transocean’s Deepwater Horizon drilling rig.

Tony Hayward, CEO, said the company is looking into multiple, concurrent options subsea to halt the oil flow while addressing the oil on the surface and threatening the shoreline.

Within the next 72 hours, Hayward said, BP will deploy a smaller dome which the company thinks might be less prone to hydrate formation because it will capture less water than the larger dome. The large dome was installed and then removed when it became plugged with icy hydrates. This new dome, referred to as a “top hat,” will be deployed on drill pipe and will be ready to flow oil upon installation rather than facing a startup period. The startup period can contribute to hydrate formation.

At the same time, BP is examining ways to hot tap into the riser away from the wellhead, to remove the riser and add another BOP or valve, and to perform a “top kill” to plug the oil flow.

Drilling continues at 9,000 ft on the relief well, and a second relief well is scheduled to start drilling on Friday.

As for the flowing oil, Hayward said seabed and surface dispersants were providing some relief, as are controlled burns of the hydrocarbons.

Kent Wells, senior VP of Exploration and Production for BP America, said the spill was an unprecedented technical challenge because of the 5,000-ft water depths and that experts from around the world were engaged in the problem.

The first issue, Wells said, is to contain the oil flow and the second step is to control it. Expanding on Hayward’s comments, Wells said the top kill plans included using the choke and kill lines for the junk shot and then the drilling fluids necessary to control the well. Several efforts with differing plug materials will be made if necessary. When that point is reached, the well will be cemented and abandoned, he said.

Well well, Very interesting. According to Alex Jones, photographers are being forbidden to photograph the oil spills on the beaches......

A very big Hmmm to this. It couldn't possibly be that there is NO oil spill on the beaches, could it? Could it be another FRAUD, CHARADE, FAKE?-is this a disaster that Never happened??? I surely would not put it past the ultra-depraved main stream media......YUCK. What a Face

Was Gulf Oil Spill an Inside Job?


By Victor Thorn


Could the catastrophic Gulf of Mexico oil rig explosion be part of a
larger scheme to “reform” the energy industry, just as the Obama
administration has “reformed” healthcare, banking and automobile
manufacturers? Worse, is “cap and trade”—possibly the worst legislation
ever penned—the ultimate endgame behind this spill, which they are now
capitalizing upon?

The first red flag receiving virtually no attention is that
Halliburton (of Dick Cheney fame) had finished a cementing process only
20 hours prior to Deepwater Horizon erupting in flames. Lawsuits have
already been filed, with Reuters reporting on April 29, “Halliburton
improperly and negligently performed its job in cementing the well,
increasing the pressure at the well and contributing to the fire,
explosion and resulting oil spill.”

As a result, a high-pressure pocket of deep oil 30,000 feet beneath
the ocean floor erupted with the force of a gigantic, non-stop fire
hose. A surviving worker on the rig, John Kersey, said it sounded “like a
war zone” as alarms were triggered, electricity shorted out, and flames
shot 300 feet into the air. The inferno-like blaze could be seen 35
miles away.

CONNECTIONS
Suspicions arise when an ownership paper trail is followed.
Halliburton subcontracted for a company named Transocean, which leased
and operated Deepwater Horizon for British Petroleum (BP). Transocean is
a subsidiary of Sonat Inc., which merged with the El Paso Corporation
(EPC) in March 1999. Douglas Foshee, EPC’s chairman, president and CEO,
was hired away from Halliburton. The interim CEO prior to his arrival
was Ronald Kuehn of Sonat.

Another previous CEO of EPC was William Wise, who served with Cheney
on the influential National Petroleum Council. EPC was the largest
single contributor from Texas for Bush-Cheney’s 2000 presidential
campaign. Similarly, Wise helped Cheney raise $8 million for the
National Republican Senatorial Committee.

These incestuous relationships aren’t limited to the GOP. Barack
Obama and his Chicago crime network expect to reap handsome profits in
the future. Step No. 1 in this process began with Chicago’s Joyce
Foundation, which had John Ayers (brother of terrorist William Ayers) on
its board. Another board member was then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama.
The Joyce Foundation created the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX),
which in turn received financing from Franklin Raines, former head of
Fannie Mae, a prime mover in our recent housing market collapse and
economic recession.

PostSubject: US Government Extends No-Fishing Zone in Gulf of Mexico   Fri 21 May 2010, 2:40 pm

US government extends No-Fishing zone

The US government has announced that it was nearly tripling the size of an area in the Gulf of Mexico that's closed to fishing because of a massive oil spill off the coast of Louisiana.


Published: 7:00AM BST 19 May 2010
Photo: AP Photo/Charlie Riedel
---------------

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has closed nearly 46,000 square miles, or about 19 per cent of federal waters.
Originally 7 per cent of the Gulf was closed to fishing boats after an offshore oil rig exploded April 20, killing 11 workers. Rig operator BP PLC estimates that the blown-out well has leaked more than 5 million gallons.

The expanded ban covers an area that starts near the Louisiana coast and moves southeast in a diagonal line. From Mississippi to Pensacola, the ban starts about 30 miles offshore. It begins moving away from shore at the Florida-Alabama border. At its eastern end south of Apalachicola, about the midpoint of the Florida Panhandle, the ban starts about 160 miles offshore.

The spill has scared off charter fishing customers at the Pensacola Beach marina, even though the water they'd normally trawl is still open.

"Usually you'd see 15 or 20 people walking up and down out here asking about the fishing. Three-fourths of these slips would be empty," said Jerry Andrews, a Pensacola native who has been fishing here for 34 years.

Mr Andrews said before the spill he was getting between 30 and 40 calls and e-mails a day asking about chartering his boat and his customers were catching their full quotas of vermilion snapper, triggerfish, amberjack and grouper.

But in the month since the spill, he gets hired for one or two trips a week, tops. Most of his customers, who come from Alabama and Georgia, are now going to the Carolinas.

He said BP, as part of its plan to help coastal businesses harmed by the spill, has paid him $5,000 and the oil giant has promised further help, but he doesn't know when that's coming.

Analysts said it doesn't appear the new restriction will hurt most US seafood chains and retailers.

Just 2 per cent of US seafood comes from the Gulf, said Gavin Gibbons, spokesman for the National Fisheries Institute trade group. The vast majority is imported from fisheries around the globe.

Comment: Will this entire area become an Off Limits Zone- ? Are they planning on cordoning off the entire Gulf of Mexico - a very disturbing
outcome indeed, if so.

More cheerful observations from the Time Monks

George Ure Saturday:

The Oil Mess

12 days into the oil rig 'accident' events continue to evolve and
weather is slowing down efforts to contain things, we have two
interesting items to report that are not in the MSM yet...OK, three
then.

1. While there are many reports on the 'net that the rig disaster was
an attack by a North Korean mini-sub, and other such fanciful things, we
have heard that a supply ship arrived just before the explosions and it
was reported to be 'manned by all new people, nobody aboard was from
the 'usual supply crew'. This purported industry source continues:
there were a total of 14 explosions and these could have been cutting
charges. Moreover, the shut off valve below the surface (5000 feet
down) on the seabed is not longer controllable. Still, lots of disinfo
and speculation scampering around the netosphere. While this is bad, it
gets worse.

2. A reader who is an engineer of considerable experience says watch
this one evolve carefully because it is destined to continue to grow and
he shares this long (but worthy explanation why:

"Heard your mention of the oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico this
morning, and you (and most everyone else except maybe George Noory) are
totally missing the boat on how big and bad of a disaster this is.
First fact, the original estimate was about 5,000 gallons of oil a
day spilling into the ocean. Now they're saying 200,000 gallons a day.
That's over a million gallons of crude oil a week!

I'm engineer with 25 years of experience. I've worked on some big
projects with big machines. Maybe that's why this mess is so clear to
me.

First, the BP platform was drilling for what they call deep oil.
They go out where the ocean is about 5,000 feet deep and drill another
30,000 feet into the crust of the earth. This it right on the edge of
what human technology can do. Well, this time they hit a pocket of oil
at such high pressure that it burst all of their safety valves all the
way up to the drilling rig and then caused the rig to explode and sink.
Take a moment to grasp the import of that. The pressure behind this oil
is so high that it destroyed the maximum effort of human science to
contain it.

When the rig sank it flipped over and landed on top of the drill
hole some 5,000 feet under the ocean.
Now they've got a hole in the ocean floor, 5,000 feet down with a
wrecked oil drilling rig sitting on top of is spewing 200,000 barrels of
oil a day into the ocean. Take a moment and consider that, will you!
First they have to get the oil rig off the hole to get at it in
order to try to cap it. Do you know the level of effort it will take to
move that wrecked oil rig, sitting under 5,000 feet of water? That
operation alone would take years and hundreds of millions to accomplish.
Then, how do you cap that hole in the muddy ocean floor? There just is
no way. No way.

The only piece of human technology that might address this is a
nuclear bomb. I'm not kidding. If they put a nuke down there in the
right spot it might seal up the hole. Nothing short of that will work.
If we can't cap that hole that oil is going to destroy the oceans of
the world. It only takes one quart of motor oil to make 250,000 gallons
of ocean water toxic to wildlife. Are you starting to get the magnitude
of this?

We're so used to our politicians creating false crises to forward
their criminal agendas that we aren't recognizing that we're staring
straight into possibly the greatest disaster mankind will ever see.
Imagine what happens if that oil keeps flowing until it destroys all
life in the oceans of this planet. Who knows how big of a reservoir of
oil is down there.

Not to mention that the oceans are critical to maintaining the
proper oxygen level in the atmosphere for human life.
We're humped. Unless God steps in and fixes this. No human can. You
can be sure of that.

3. The third thing to bring attention to is the predictive linguistics
discussion of the 'blue flue" in the latestShape of Things to Come
report of what's ahead for the world's oceans. In particular, what
strikes me is that while some of the focus is on the possibility of
methane hydrate releases later in the year, the spelling in the report
is 'flue' (and in upward conveyance, not 'flu' and is sickness per se).

"This [big clue methane related] incident then goes onto cause a
[big stink] within TPTB [minion class] {ed note: most notably the CFR -
Council on Foreign Relations}. Not only are humans and other life
directly impacted by the large [clouds of drifting complex methane
housing gas] but the mere [release] of the quantity to be seen causes
the TPTB and their [minion class] to go [apeshit] trying to [locate (a
believable) scenario] to explain the [blue flue events(s)].

I'll grant you that the methane and oil gurgling out of the Gulf of
Mexico (GOM) right now is not methanehydrate but rather compressed
methane, but around here, that's close enough especially when the 'blue
flue' to the surface has been destroyed., Curious how just a little
spelling like this can tip us off that we've got something of a serious
hit developing.

The latest trajectory map out of NOAA which should be updated over the
weekend looks like this....in a word: Grim...

We hear - again from people who are reliable sources, but who we won't
name in order to keep them from getting fired, is that there are a
couple of parishes (county equivalents) in Louisiana which are preparing
evacuation plans because people are being made sick by the smell of the
oil and gas being blown onshore.

Looking ahead to Sunday through Tuesday, we'd expect as this grows that
there will be emergency operation centers set up and some moving of
people to begin, which would then feed in to the Diaspora meta data
layer of Cliff's work.

Not to be glum, but you can see most likely how this all starts to tie
together?

We will be topping off our 'investment grade diesel reserves and getting
our additional solar panels ordered this week, so as to hit the next
level of energy independence before the global impacts come into focus
over the next month or two.


This report seems to have been the most prophetic , because it predicts the current evacuation "vector" (scenario). I believe this WAS the original intent, or at least one of them, for their engineering of this horrible disaster.

As C1 said, we're in the hands of pure evil now--and they are running free wih no deterrents. I myself am thinking in terms of basics now--do I have them, and have I prepared to the best of my ability. And the answer to that is yes...for what it's worth. After that, it's up to Providence, si ?
Well, let's hang in there, guys.
I love you

I hear ya Explorer. The 'Great Diaspora' has probably already started. At least the smart ones are beating the traffic jam. Hey, I live perched on an active volcano, I can materially prepare for everything (I have) short of a pyroclastic flow or meteor strike. I've come home to a place I plan to live until I die. When my Creator calls my number I hope to die as a warrior even if I get creamed by a bus.
