There is a very important aspect of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill crisis that hardly anyone is talking about. You see, it is not just an "oil spill" that BP has unleashed on the floor of the Gulf of Mexico. What BP has done is that they have uncorked an "oil volcano" that is violently spewing oil and gas out of the floor of the Gulf of Mexico so violently and with such pressure that it is beyond the capacity of human technology to control it. Millions upon millions of gallons of oil have already been pumped into the Gulf of Mexico, and millions upon millions more will continue to be pumped into the Gulf before all of this is over. So could all of this violent activity on the floor of the Gulf of Mexico spark seismic activity in the region that could potentially be absolutely catastrophic? Could this "oil volcano" cause an earthquake along the New Madrid fault line that is so powerful that it could bring about "the end of the world as we know it" for those living in the area?
Those are legitimate questions.
Nearly 200 years ago, earthquakes rattled the New Madrid fault line that were so powerful that they are still talked about today. Fortunately, at the time the areas impacted were not highly populated so the damage was minimal. But similar earthquakes today would impact millions of people.
The truth is that there were four earthquakes in 1811 and 1812 along the New Madrid fault that were estimated to have been magnitude-7.0 or greater. It was reported that those quakes opened deep fissures in the ground and that they were felt as far away as Boston.
There are even those who believe that someday an earthquake will strike the New Madrid fault that will be so powerful that it will rip a hole in the center of the United States and will allow the Gulf of Mexico to pour in and create a new body of water in the middle of the continental United States.
Now, let's hope that such a thing will not happen in our lifetimes, but according to scientists, the potential for a nightmarish earthquake in the area of the New Madrid fault is very real.
But what does that have to do with the Gulf of Mexico?
