If you have the stomach for it, a speech from someone telling THE TRUTH about what she knows:

http://beforeitsnews.com/story/85/339/Louisiana_woman_claims_to_have_inside_info_on_the_gulf_situation.html

The above video is from a passionate citizen of the Gulf Region.

Its far worse than we think it is.

When the rig blew, it looked to me just like every other Human Catastrophe, and yet another extension of Murphy's Law, but yet one that would be handled by allegedly responsible adults. Too much has happened, and NOT happened, in too short of a time for me to continue this belief.

Take a look at the following stories and Tubes and decide for yourselves:

No skimmers in sight as oil floods into Mississippi waters


By Karen Nelson | Biloxi Sun Herald
GULFPORT, Miss. — A morning flight over the Mississippi Sound showed long, wide ribbons of orange-colored oil for as far as the eye could see and acres of both heavy and light sheen moving into the Sound between the barrier islands. What was missing was any sign of skimming operations from Horn Island to Pass Christian.

U.S. Rep. Gene Taylor got off the flight angry.

"It’s criminal what’s going on out there," Taylor said minutes later. "This doesn’t have to happen.”

A scientist onboard, Mike Carron with the Northern Gulf Institute, said with this scenario, there will be oil on the beaches of the mainland.

“There’s oil in the Sound and there was no skimming,” Carron said. “No coordinated effort.”

...

Taylor slipped a note to a fellow passenger.

It said: “I’m having a Katrina flashback. I haven’t seen this much stupidity, wasted effort, money and wasted resources, since then.”

Back on land in Gulfport, Taylor let loose.

“A lot of people are getting paid to say, ‘Look! There’s oil’ and not doing anything about it,” Taylor said. “There shouldn’t be a drop of oil in the Sound. There are enough boats running around.

“Nobody’s in charge,” Taylor said. “Everybody’s in charge, so no one’s in charge.

NOTE: Im not suggesting that you look at ALL of the below videos, at least consider them a 'referrence' of sorts for the text immediately around them.

"The dispersant chemical, Corexit, contains surfactants, the same type of chemicals that make soap work. The ingredients of Corexit include 2-butoxyethanol, according to a data sheet from the company. That’s a clear, colorless liquid that smells like ether, and can cause irritation of the nose and eyes, headaches, and vomiting, if inhaled in large volumes, according to the Centers for Disease Control."

Here is a highly customizable, real time visual of virtuall all environmental and weather impacts in the Gulf:

http://nowcoast.noaa.gov/

I think the devestation we are about to see will be between New Orleans, along the coast, down to the Florida Keys.

Methane in Gulf "astonishingly high": U.S. scientist

(Reuters) - As much as 1 million times the normal level of methane gas has been found in some regions near the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, enough to potentially deplete oxygen and create a dead zone, U.S. scientists said on Tuesday.

*******

There is also the Toxic Stew from Chemical spray that will likely affect the land a few hundred miles inland, once storms and other atmospheric happenings do what they naturally do:

http://intotheashes.imva.info/?p=311/#arrive

Gulf Coast Toxicity Syndrome

"Vicki B. Escarra, President and CEO of Feeding America, wrote, “Alongside natural disaster, a very real human disaster looms. The recent oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has wrought havoc on sea and on land. But attention is now turning to the long-term effects the disaster will have on the coastlines, on businesses, and on American men, women and children. The immediate effects of the oil spill are obvious. Others, such as its effects on American families, will be hard to measure and will take years to document.”

There are effects from the oil spill that you can see, like oil washing ashore, and those that you can’t, like when oil compounds break down and go airborne. What is unfolding in the Gulf of Mexico is truly a nightmare of epic proportions. And it’s going to be a health disaster whose dimensions are growing exponentially behind curtains erected by the federal government. Few people are grasping the magnitude of the Gulf oil tragedy, not grasping the grave consequences for many millions of people and eventually the entire world. It is going to affect not only the livelihoods and employment of locals but will also contribute to the health failure of millions of people. It is so profoundly sad – like watching a loved one with a gunshot to the belly witnessing the blood coming out, but in this case it’s the planet belching up black blood and poison gas in huge and very possibly unending quantities."

*************

I spent about 12 hours researching this matter this last weekend, viewing tubes, reviewing documents, sifting through the BS, and tracking down Industrial Material Data Safety SHeets (MSDS) on the chemicals being used and their PROPER, Mfg recommended applications, and I must confess a high degree of stunned disbelief in the abject disregaurd that is being shown toward not just the environment, but the human lives impacted by this event.

Its one thing to make the statement, "man is going to screw it up", its entirely another to preform ones due dilligence and verify and validate the facts and data of a matter to the extent that one is left with the sense that actions taken, and actions NOT taken amount to something beyond incompetence, beyond beurocratic malfeasence, but ventures into a caloused malace on a magnitude that makes my little hard wired brain simply start to an automatic shutdown sequence merely out of a need to retain a degree of civil decorum necessary to 'carry-on' in my day to day life. I already know from the Bible that evil exists, and it hates all of us, and all of Gods creation, but its another matter to observe the nuts and bolts of it in real action.

Hey Matty! Razz Razz Razz



Sorry for the delay in my posting, mate, ive been all over the show -- just wanted to say thanks, for your due dilligence and researching in this area (and others). You know, down here in Oz, there is nothing in the news about the Gulf disaster anymore - NOTHING - all that is talked about is BP's share price and company devaluation -- something shady is at work -- whether it is mere blatant greed, or an NWO style attack -- its not good, either way this is not good.


After looking at some links you shared, I found this one -- if this is even a remote possibility - it is absolutely horrific - and will surely usher in darkness on a whole new level.

http://www.helium.com/items/1864136-how-the-ultimate-bp-gulf-disaster-could-kill-millions


I hope it isnt true.....but based on what is happening (and what we arent being told).....me thinks there might be truth to this!


We all knows things have to happen....but damn straight > it sure does boggles the mind at the calculated, machination of minds that are behind this all.


Cheers mate, and thanks again for your research!


Razz Razz Razz

Thanks Beau---

Yes, a massive release of Methane gas is one of the concerns with this whole mess.

The long term consequences:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2010/jun/30/biologists-find-oil-spill-deadzones

Biologists find 'dead zones' around BP oil spill in Gulf

Scientists are confronting growing evidence that BP's ruptured well in the Gulf of Mexico is creating oxygen-depleted "dead zones" where fish and other marine life cannot survive.

In two separate research voyages, independent scientists have detected what were described as "astonishingly high" levels of methane, or natural gas, bubbling from the well site, setting off a chain of reactions that suck the oxygen out of the water. In some cases, methane concentrations are 100,000 times normal levels.

Other scientists as well as sport fishermen are reporting unusual movements of fish, shrimp, crab and other marine life, including increased shark sightings closer to the Alabama coast.

Larry Crowder, a marine biologist at Duke University, said there were already signs that fish were being driven from their habitat.

"The animals are already voting with their fins to get away from where the oil spill is and where potentially there is oxygen depletion," he said. "When you begin to see animals changing their distribution that is telling you about the quality of water further offshore. Basically, the fish are moving closer to shore to try to get to better water."

*****************

The acute potential:

http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/5508524/increasing_concern_over_potential_methane.html

Increasing Concern Over Potential Methane Gas Explosion and Tsunami at BP Oil Spill Site

How Methane Can Cause Tsunamis

If there is, in fact, a methane bubble just beneath the surface, and if this bubble is released, then what happens? The methane bubble's release could create a massive explosion, which would set off a tsunami of truly epic proportions. Even scarier is the fact that this methane explosion could vaporize all the water, oil, and other substances at the site of the BP Oil leak, leaving a giant cavity in the ocean's floor. This could lead to more tsunamis and potentially fire or other explosions

In terms of who may have KNEW that this "accident" was going to happen, I submit this for your perusal:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/energy/oilandgas/7804922/BP-chief-Tony-Hayward-sold-shares-weeks-before-oil-spill.html

BP chief Tony Hayward sold shares weeks before oil spill

"Tony Hayward cashed in about a third of his holding in the company one month before a well on the Deepwater Horizon rig burst, causing an environmental disaster.

Mr Hayward, whose pay package is £4 million a year, then paid off the mortgage on his family’s mansion in Kent, which is estimated to be valued at more than £1.2 million.

BP targets $1bn savings as profits fall by 53pcThere is no suggestion that he acted improperly or had prior knowledge that the company was to face the biggest setback in its history.

His decision, however, means he avoided losing more than £423,000 when BP’s share price plunged after the oil spill began six weeks ago.

Since he disposed of 223,288 shares on March 17, the company’s share price has fallen by 30 per cent. About £40 billion has been wiped off its total value. The fall has caused pain not just for BP shareholders, but also for millions of company pension funds and small investors who have money held in tracker funds."

AND, of course, the Banksters:

http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/standard-business/article-23847193-goldman-sachss-shares-sell-off-beats-gulf-oil-spill-debacle.do

Goldman Sachs beat oil spill debacle with BP shares sell-off

"The investment bank's prescience is revealed in filings to Wall Street watchdog the US Securities and Exchange Commission.

Those show that between January and March of this year, Goldman sold 4.9 million shares across three separate funds — 58% of the bank's total holding.

Goldman is itself facing legal action for its role in the subprime mortgage debacle. Until BP ran into trouble, it was perhaps the most under fire company in America.

The bank has a record of astute selling ahead of major disasters. It was shorting the US housing market before the real estate bubble burst.

Goldman isn't the only investor to be ahead of the curve. Neil Woodford of Invesco Perpetual sold out of both BP and Royal Dutch Shell in October 2009. H

e was concerned about the rising costs of exploration and the falling oil price, fearing these factors could hamper their ability to reward shareholders.

Other large BP shareholders to have cut their stake as the share price tumbled include Legal & General, M&G, Scottish Widows and Axa.

Some City analysts now argue that the shares have been so battered they are now cheap. However, advisers note that they are for brave investors only given the risks that remain to the company's future."

*********

I had read in another artice that this financial move by Goldman Sachs saved them $100 million (to date)

For those of you still in denial about the contrived and planned nature of earth changing events by those who are running this show, I implore you:

WAKE UP.

Note: The following is NOT a reliable news source. Nevertheless, it represents a "boots on the ground" rumor-type piece of information. Take it for what its worth. Generally speaking, to me, when men and materials (snowplows in summer) are being moved around---something that isnt readily reported in news---this represents a plan in action.

Again, take it for what its worth.


http://beforeitsnews.com/news/90/749/Breaking_News_Military_Men_Moving_Their_own_Families_Now_Snowplows_Ready_To_Remove_Abandoned_Vehicles_from_Highways_When_Evacuations_Occur.html

“Snow plows are being readied to go up and down the interstate highways in the middle of summer moving stranded vehicles off the road when evacuations begin.” Evenson implored people to not panic, and to simply prepare ahead so that they can move out of harms way before the crush of a full evacuation has begun.” - Greg Evenson thejohnchronicles.wordpress.com/2010/06/29/greg-evenson-new-update-gulf-of-mexico-june-28-2010/

This may be lengthy, but I would like to present what is happening, and what likely COULD happen very soon, in graphic format. Hopefully this will give folks an idea of the magnitude of the catastrophe that is occuring RIGHT NOW.

Thanks for your patience. Smile

This is a raod map of the Gulf Coast, United States:



This is a map from NOAA, charting the Oil SPill to date:



At this point, lets keep in mind the above data: In addition to 1 EXXON VALDEZ tanker being spilled into the Gulf every 5 days since April 20, 1.5 MILLION gallons of Toxic Corexit 9500 & 9527 has been either infused or sprayed in this area.

NOW....

This is a map that shows known Hurricane tracks from the last 100 years or so:



DO you see where I am goin with this now?

Once the Oil and Corexit, a TOXIC STEW if you like, is gathered into the atmosphere by various thunderstorms and, God forbid, a major Hurricane, the area of dispersal---both in land and population---is truly enormous.

WHY arent we hearing any of this on CNN or FOX? Its becuase they have an illusion to perpetuate...."Never mind that man behind the curtain..."

Some will fallaciously argue that "Oil does not evaporate", and this is true, it doesnt. But they will say that because Oil doesnt evaporate, it CANNOT rain Oil.

I call BS.

SO WHAT if it doesnt evaporate. It can still be gathered into the atmosphere just like many other more solid substances have been and littered over a gigantic area. When the Deadly Tornadoes of May 1999 came though my Kansas town, in the cleanup, I found packages of sealed---previously frozen hamburger---from someones freezer, in my front yard. God only knows where it came from, as those tornadoes began in Oklahoma City.

SO, going back to the first map, with a Polygon representing the area of most likely impact, we have:



From what I have seen and read so far, first the vegetation gets "spoty" and starts to die, then birds (much like the fabled "canary in the mine") drop dead, and then people start to get sick. If enough people get sick, or worse, God forbid, start dying, there could likely be millions of people fleeing the Gulf Area. The likely cities that would find themselves inundated would be, in a circle from West to East; Houston, Dallas, Little Rock, Memphis, Nashville, Atlanta, Richmond, Columbia, Charleston. Im sure Ive missed a few, but those are the ones that seem to stick out, 'at a glance'.

A key factor in all this, one that is often overlooked or unmentioned (due to some sort of political correctness), is that this area and many of these cities are already laboring under very heavy social-economic burdens. Its not a matter of "race"----we are ALL of the HUMAN race----but rather one of culture, a socio-economic culture that cuts across all lines.

God help us if the worst occurs.

Nevertheless, in one way or another, prepare yourselves for the advent of the American Refugee; the great Diaspora of 2010.

http://www.businessinsider.com/warning-to-gulf-cleanup-workers-almost-every-crew-member-from-the-1989-exxon-valdez-disaster-is-now-dead-2010-6


Warning To Gulf Volunteers: Almost Every Cleanup Worker From The 1989 Exxon Valdez Disaster Is Now Dead

"Are you sure that you want to help clean up the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico? In a previous article we documented a number of the health dangers from this oil spill that many scientists are warning us of, and now it has been reported on CNN that the vast majority of those who worked to clean up the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska are now dead. Yes, you read that correctly. Almost all of them are dead.

In fact, the expert that CNN had on said that the life expectancy for those who worked to clean up the Exxon Valdez oil spill is only about 51 years. Considering the fact that the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is now many times worse than the Exxon Valdez disaster, are you sure you want to volunteer to be on a cleanup crew down there? After all, the American Dream is not to make big bucks for a few months helping BP clean up their mess and then drop dead 20 or 30 years early.

This news clip from CNN is absolutely stunning. If this is even close to true, then why would anyone want to be involved in helping to clean up this oil?....

The truth is that what we have out in the Gulf of Mexico is a "toxic soup" of oil, methane, benzene, hydrogen sulfide, other toxic gases and very poisonous chemical dispersants such as Corexit 9500.

Breathing all of this stuff is not good for your health, but the reality is that the true health toll of this oil spill is not going to be known for decades.

However, the early reports are not encouraging....

*Already, a large number of workers cleaning up the BP oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico report that they are suffering from flu-like symptoms.

*According to another new report, exposure to the oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico has resulted in 162 cases of illnesses reported to the Louisiana state health department.

*In addition, according to one local Pensacola news source, "400 people have sought medical care for upper or lower respiratory problems, headaches, nausea, and eye irritation after trips to Escambia County beaches."

This is going to be something that we all want to keep a very close eye on.

But it is not just oil spill cleanup workers and people who have gone to the beach who are reporting health issues. The following is a report from a reader named Dee....

My 2 friends and I have been sick with headaches and vomiting, also it feels like heartburn, just feeling lousy. We have not been to the Gulf but there is an inlet at the end of our street. We live on the West side of Pensacola FL. near the Bayou. At first I thought it was just me. My 2 friends are having the same symptoms, all at the same time. Right now I have a dull headache, and my stomach is queasy. I have been thinking maybe the chemicals from the oil cleanup or the oil itself is causing us to be ill. It has been raining all day off and on. I started feeling ill late last night. I was wondering if anyone else in Pensacola have the same symptoms.

So what can we conclude from all this?

Well, it is still very early, but when this crisis is all said and done the biggest tragedy of all might be the health devastation that this oil spill has caused.

If the Exxon Valdez oil spill is any indication, a lot of pe0ple are going to end up dying early deaths.

So once again, do you really want to go down there and clean up this oil?

Of course all of this oil is not just going to clean itself up.

But if we all refuse to participate, who will clean it up?

Perhaps BP CEO Tony Heyward and other high ranking BP executives could roll up their sleeves and go down there and start cleaning up all of that toxic sludge.

It's their mess, so let them clean it."

***********************************

There are still a few folks I know from work association that believe the Govt has our best interests at heart, and that the EPA is more than capable and willing to warn us of what we need to know. Rolling Eyes

They convienently forget Exxon Valdez, as well as the fact there were thousands of persons willing to help at the 9/11 clean-up, told that the air was fine by these same agencies, and many, MANY of these folks are now suffering ADVERSE health problems ( http://www.nyc.gov/html/doh/wtc/html/know/physical.shtml ).

As the above articles document, as well as hundreds more added on an almost daily basis, the air quality and the water quality of the Gulf Coast is under an assault the likes of which---the magnitude--has never happened before, and the long term dangers to the crop/agricultural/water supply are also unprecedented.

There are chemicals stewing in this area, and being added to on a daily basis, that will find their way well beyond the workers and clean-up crews, and into the lives of millions of people. Can we expect them to fare better?

Up to the minute air quality reports in the gulf.

I would be more "settled" with the data in general if it were from someone else besides the EPA.

http://georgewashington2.blogspot.com/2010/07/toxicologists-corexit-ruptures-red.html


Friday, July 9, 2010
Toxicologists: Corexit “Ruptures Red Blood Cells, Causes Internal Bleeding”, "Allows Crude Oil To Penetrate “Into The Cells” and “Every Organ System"

As I have previously noted, Corexit is toxic, is less effective than other dispersants, and is actually worsening the damage caused by the oil spill.

Now, two toxicologists are saying that Corexit is much more harmful to human health and marine life than we've been told.

Specifically Gulf toxicologist Dr. Susan Shaw - Founder and Director of the Marine Environmental Research Institute - dove into the oil spill to examine the chemicals present.

Dr. Shaw told CNN:



If I can tell you what happens — because I was in the oil — to people…

Shrimpers throwing their nets into water… [then] water from the nets splashed on his skin. …

[He experienced a] headache that lasted 3 weeks… heart palpitations… muscle spasms… bleeding from the rectum…

And that’s what that Corexit does, it ruptures red blood cells, causes internal bleeding, and liver and kidney damage. …

This stuff is so toxic combined… not the oil or dispersants alone. …

Very, very toxic and goes right through skin.

*********

How much Corexit has been dumped in the Gulf so far?:

http://www.deepwaterhorizonresponse.com/go/doc/2931/768595/
