I'm gonna post it now, & then link it back here.

It'll be an ongoing first hand pictorial/testimony of what's happening to us.


That is exactly what we need! And as I live one mile inland across a salt marsh vista, I will do my part.


Well then if everyone does, we should wind up with quite an archive of first-hand no BS documentation.

I'm pretty worn out tonight.. but I'll get it posted tomorrow.

Well, when it starts washing-up affecting your area directly.. I think we're formidable enough to outstrip the MSM in real-time REAL coverage.. the Truth is important.

This is going to be a months/years/FOREVER kinda thing.. one that'll worsen by the day for who knows how long..

I'm gonna start an 'Official' (never done one of those) GLP thread for GLPrs on the coast & in affected areas to post pics & stories... something we can all watch develop together from the 'first-hand' perspective without MSM filtering & lies..

*Breaking*

Gulf oil spill may be 19 times bigger than originally thought
May 19, 2010

WASHINGTON — The latest glimpse of video footage of the oil spill deep under the Gulf of Mexico indicates that around 95,000 barrels, or 4 million gallons, a day of crude oil may be spewing from the leaking wellhead, 19 times the previous estimate, an engineering professor told Congress Wednesday.

New BP underwater video of oil, gas gushing as spill spreads

Russia Today May 19, 2010



The figure of 5,000 barrels, or 210,000 gallons, a day that BP and the federal government have been using for weeks is based on observations of the surface slick made by satellites and aircraft. Even NASA's satellite-based instruments, however, can't see deep into the waters of the gulf, where much of the oil from the gusher seems to be floating. The well is 5,000 feet below the surface.

That would have to mean that all measures to stem the flow of oil from one source have failed but in fact that the seafloor itself has undergone defamation increasing the out flow by many fissures with escaping pressurized oil vents somewhat like a volcano.

Hey Scrump, perhaps people could also report health effects on this new thread. Would be helpful for everyone in the affected areas to know about, and to take precautions. Might suggest that those affected get some activated carbon breathing masks (google search). Here is a list of what activated carbon is effective in removing (includes benzene and hydrogen sulfide): [link to www.surroundair.com]

If the fumes get thick enough, they will eventually get indoors. Air purifiers with activated carbon filters linked at bottom.

I gotta say if nothing else, this proves peak oil to be a hoax. If a single well can produce more than the entire worldwide demand for oil (which is 85k barrels/day), there is no shortage of oil. That works out to about a cubic mile of oil per year.

The Gulf of Mexico, where i spent my entire childhood, fishing, playing on the beach, trips to Ship Island, Cat Island on my friends boats......its all gone.
 Quoting: Gabriel


The Gulf is not gone. That is bullshit.

This oil spill is a problem, yes. But it is temporary, not permanent. Duhhh!

If the Gulf is "gone" then the Pacific is gone too, because of Exxon Valdez, which happened in one small corner of the Pacific.

And the Persian Gulf is now gone too, it no longer exists in fact. Why? Because when Saddam Hussein set all of those oil well aflame at the end of the 1991 Gulf War, because he was pissed that he lost so miserably, the oil drained down through the Shatt Al Arab waterway and into the Persian Gulf, thus destroying it forever.

Nope. Not gone and this whole thing is being way overhyped. Yes it is an environmental mess.. at present. But it WILL be cleaned up, the well will be capped, just like all of the other underwater oil wells that have blown up around the world in the past, the crisis will pass and eventually it will even be forgotten.

Twenty years from now, when you ask kids who live in the region what they know about the great oil spill of 2010 they will say: "What oil spill? Oh wait, yeah, I think I heard something about that once.. in science class..."

You will be able to go to Cat Island again. And by this time next year, someone could offer you $1 million if you can find one speck of oil from last year's spill and you'd still walk away penniless.. and frustrated.. unable to find a scrap.

Even without the help of humankind, nature heals everything, sooner or later. And the Earth has seen calamities hundreds of millions of times more powerful and more damaging than this oil spill and has healed all of the damage completely, not leaving a trace. But humans are working day and night trying to limit the damage here so that is a bonus.

Remember the great Ixtoc spill of 1979, in the Western Gulf of Mexico? Didn't think so because even though it plastered the beaches from deep into Mexico and all the way up to the Upper Texas coast with oil and countless huge blobs of tar, it is long disappeared now and not a trace remains.

Here are some helpful links about oil spills in the past that the Earth.. and its delicate environment.. survived.

Dude, there are countless cubic feet of flammable gases rising into our atmosphere and a strong hurricane season rolling in that will be packing serious lighning and sprites.

We may see our skies on fire and witness the hurricanes draw this oil up and destroy all the crops from the midwest to the eastern seaboard and contaminate half our nations water supply.

It doesnt get much more serious than thisdamned


Hmmmm...the spill has grown to near record proportions, just in time for hurricane season.
 Quoting: CN

Actually from what i know about evaporation, oil will prevent sea water from evaporating thus weakening hurricanes, however this is NOT a good thing, for one hurricanes are needed, even if they are overly destructive, they provide both much needed rainfall as well as have a cooling effect on the area they hit, second, and most importantly, it will cause rainfall to drop drastically in many areas of the continental united states, killing millions of crops that are near the atlantic and the gulf, so basically this could cause massive deaths from starvation and thirst.

I don't even want to think about what will happen if the gases from this thing get carried into the american breadbasket by the jet stream.

Either way this proves at least one thing, don't mess with mother nature, it doesn't like mankind.

Either way, someone please tell me i'm wrong, however i don't believe i am.

OIl is worth what, 70 dollars a barrel? It seems like some entrepreneurs would be out there trying to scoop that shit up, seriously. all this bullshit about underwater streams of oil is dubious information, because oil floats. Asphalt is heavier than water and does not float, but it is also present in the gulf of mexico naturally.

Re: *Breaking* Gulf Disaster: Gulf Oil Spill May Be NINETEEN TIMES Bigger Than Originally Thought
@AC SHILL #937801

The Ixtoc spill was 5k barrels/day. This spill could be 100k barrels/day, 20x larger. Ixtoc leaked for 9 months. Say this spill leaks for 4.5 months. Then were talking 10x the Ixtoc spill in terms of volume leaked. That kind of numbers are not trivial. Nobody knows what might happen if you spill so much oil into an ocean.

In addition, a deep oil spill @5,000 ft may prove extremely hard to stop. The ixtoc spill was at a mere 165ft and it took all of 9 months to stop. The ultradeep well drilling which lead to this spill may complicate things further. Who knows how large or how high pressure a reservoir they tapped with this new well?

I gotta say if nothing else, this proves peak oil to be a hoax. If a single well can produce more than the entire worldwide demand for oil (which is 85k barrels/day), there is no shortage of oil. That works out to about a cubic mile of oil per year.

Dude, youre full of shit. In the united states alone, we use millions of barrels of oil a day. What are you on, anti depressants? Flourides? Dumbass -Driller
