The GLP Gulf Disaster Eyewitness Documentation Thread / Image & Video Archive: Coastal GPL'rs Wanted. PG 1 Update 7/09/2010
If there's one thing that's infuriated me more than anything about the Gulf Disaster (besides its existence), it's the lies & cover-ups that we're all forced to endure everyday as it's ongoing..


DC, BP, & their MSM lapdogs rule the day.. they can put forth any story & withhold anything that they please.. laugh & lie in our faces while they let the Gulf die..

The tip of the Monster's nose j u s t touched the shore of Louisiana yesterday...

I know that I posted this article/pic yesterday, but it's a milestone.

The first landfall... the beginning of the Nightmare...

This is the DEFINITION of the phrase "And So It Begins"

BP touts containment efforts: Heavy Oil Reaches Louisiana Wetlands

By the CNN Wire Staff
May 19, 2010 6:08 p.m. EDT


New Orleans, Louisiana (CNN)
-- BP said Wednesday that efforts to contain and clean up oil gushing from a ruptured pipe in the Gulf of Mexico have made a "measurable difference" even as Louisiana's governor announced that thick, heavy oil has begun polluting the state's wetlands and estuaries.

dfjsty

Doug Suttles, BP's chief operating officer for exploration and production, said at a news conference that the company is "very pleased" with the performance of an insertion tube that was put in place over the weekend to suck crude oil from the well and funnel it to a surface vessel...

Thread: The True Disaster Emerging: Heavy Oil Reaches Louisiana Marshland

And so it's begun.

DC, BP, & their MSM lapdogs rule the day...

Until Now.


Information Is Power.

This thread is to Eyewitness-Document the progression and the TRUE magnitude of the destruction as it happens & for posterity.

It's so we are no longer forced to rely on 'them' to tell us what's happening to us.

The oil made first contact with the coast of the United States yesterday.. it's here now.. they can't hide what's in the open air for all to see & document.

Its purpose is for Coastal GLP'r supplied original videos, pics, testimonies, tips/warnings... whatever you guys feel is important.. to archive, network, spread info.. suggestions are welcome.

It'll have 4 'Main' sections (including this intro).. and as soon as I post this, I'll reserve the next 3 spots.

These will be for specific purposes, & I'll update them as we all go through this... I'm open to all suggestions as to the use of each.. pics/vids, warnings/info.. you get the drift.

For those who can't upload pics or embed video that they've shot, we'll agree on a common place (Photobucket, GLP Video.. etc) that those will be uploaded to & I'll then upload/embed them here (page 1), sorted as to dates/progression of damage.

As this Beast comes fully ashore, the Truth, which we've been denied so far.. must be told.

This Disaster will be an ongoing, ever-increasing, unrelenting Nightmare for months or years at least.

We should NOT have to rely on PROVEN liars to spoon-feed us whatever they please whenever they please... we can do better all by ourselves.


And again... just for posterity's sake:

Syrupy oil washes into Louisiana marshes for first time

Associated Press Reporting

The spectacle many had feared for a month finally began unfolding as gooey, rust-colored oil washed into the marshes at the mouth of the Mississippi for the first time, stoking public anger and frustration with both BP and the government.

The sense of gloom deepened as BP conceded what some scientists have been saying for weeks: that the oil leak at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico is bigger than the company previously estimated.

Up to now, only tar balls and a sheen of oil had come ashore. But on Wednesday, chocolate brown and vivid orange globs, sheets and ribbons of foul-smelling oil the consistency of latex paint began coating the reeds and grasses of Louisiana's wetlands, home to rare birds, mammals and a rich variety of marine life.

There were no immediate reports of any mass die-offs of wildlife or large numbers of creatures wriggling in oil, as seen after the Exxon Valdez disaster, but that was the fear.

Billy Nungesser, president of Louisiana's Plaquemines Parish, toured the oil-fouled marshes Wednesday and said: "Had you fallen off that boat yesterday and come up breathing that stuff, you probably wouldn't be here."

A live video feed of the underwater gusher, posted online Thursday after lawmakers exerted pressure on BP, is sure to fuel the anger.

It shows what appears to be a large plume of oil and gas still spewing into the water next to the stopper-and-tube combination that BP inserted to carry some of the crude to the surface. The House committee website where the video was posted promptly crashed because so many people were trying to view it.

"These videos stand as a scalding, blistering indictment of BP's inattention to the scope and size of the greatest environmental catastrophe in the history of the United States," said Rep. Edward J. Markey, D-Mass.

At least 6 million gallons have gushed into the Gulf - more than half the amount the Exxon Valdez tanker spilled in Alaska in 1989 - since the Deepwater Horizon drilling platform exploded 50 miles off the coast April 20. Eleven workers were killed.

The slow-motion disaster could become far wider. Government scientists said a small portion of the slick had entered the so-called loop current, a stream of fast-moving water that could carry the mess into the Florida Keys and up the state's Atlantic Coast, damaging coral reefs and fouling beaches.

"It's anger that the people who are supposed to be driving the ship don't have any idea what's going on," E.J. Boles, a musician from Big Pine Key, Fla., said of both BP and the government. "Why wouldn't they have any contingency plan? I'm not a genius, and even I would have thought of that."

BP spokesman Mark Proegler told The Associated Press that the mile-long tube inserted into the leaking well pipe over the weekend is capturing 210,000 gallons of oil a day - the total amount the company and the Coast Guard had estimated was gushing into the sea - but that some is still escaping. He would not say how much.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said an interagency team using ships and planes is working on a new estimate of how much oil is gushing from the well. Agency officials would not speculate on how big the leak might be.

Washington, meanwhile, turned up the pressure on BP.

The Obama administration asked the company to be more open with the public by sharing such information as measurements of the leak and the trajectory of the spill. BP has been accused of covering up the magnitude of the disaster.

Also, the Environmental Protection Agency directed BP to employ a less toxic form of the chemical dispersants it has been using to break up the oil and keep it from reaching the surface.

BP is marshaling equipment for an attempt as early as Sunday at a "top kill," which involves pumping heavy mud into the top of the blown-out well to try to plug the gusher. A top kill has been used before above ground, but like other methods BP is exploring, it has never been attempted 5,000 feet underwater.

If it doesn't work, the backup plans include a "junk shot" - shooting golf balls, shredded tires, knotted rope and other material into the well to clog it up.

But Chris Roberts, a member of Louisiana's Jefferson Parish Council, complained bitterly: "We don't have time for BP to use the Gulf of Mexico as an experiment."

BP officials have said repeatedly that no one could have predicted or prepared for such a disaster. But some lawmakers and others aren't buying it.
Commercial fisherman Pete Gerica of New Orleans, a member of the Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board, said the oil industry "needed to have a better tool box." As for the government, he said, "The watchdog people failed us miserably."

In Washington, environmental groups urged the government to take greater control of the situation from BP.

"The Gulf of Mexico is a crime scene," said Larry Schweiger, president of the National Wildlife Federation, "and the perpetrator cannot be left in charge of assessing the damage."

God that photo makes me ill.

I used to live in the Tampa Bay/Clearwater area. My friend went back to visit last week and said only ONE person she spoke to was concerned about the oil. The others seemed to be in a strange state of apathy, drinking and drugging a lot, much different than either of us recall from our years living there, and these are not teenagers, they're married people and homeowners, with careers, many with kids.

Is it because people feel helpless, there's nothing they can do? Are they resigned to our fate? Do they care more about American Idol than the planet? Do they only believe what Keith Olbermann tells them? Ignorant? Blind? Stupid? Can't see beyond scoring their next joint?

Breaking: Oil Makes Landfall, Cops Blocking Beaches, MoJo on the Scene [Video and Photos]


— By Michael Mechanic
| Thu May. 20, 2010 1:34 PM PDT

— Photo: Mac McClelland

MoJo reporter Mac McClelland is getting one hell of a chilling story in Louisiana right now. This morning she headed down to the area where, according to online maps, oil from the BP fiasco was headed. Wherever she turned, she found sheriff's deputies blocking the beach access roads—until she hit a beach at Grand Isle, and literally stepped into the mess. (Follow Mac on Twitter here.)

Here's what unfolded in her tweetstream:


Has oil made landfall in port fourchon, LA? Can't look, bc cops turned us around at bridge to beach. about 3 hours ago

Oil just hit land in grand isle. Blobs completely covering this shore. about 2 hours ago

Governor's helicopters are flying overhead. about 1 hour ago

All these spots are blobs of oil. about 1 hour ago

All these spots are blobs of oil. on Twitpic

Crude all over my fingers. about 1 hour ago

Crude all over my fingers. on Twitpic

These vacationers say there was no oil earlier today; this shit all just started washing up, and it's already everywhere. about 1 hour ago

This was when I realized oil arrived; when I stepped in crude. 42 minutes ago

This was when I realized oil arrived; when I stepped in crude. on Twitpic

5 sheriff's cars have arrived. No pics allowed, no more access to elmer's island. 27 minutes ago

The gov's office has arrived. 10 minutes ago

The gov's office has arrived on Twitpic

Mac says the sheriff's deputies who arrived at Grand Isle told her she couldn't take pictures of them, but didn't keep her away from the beach—yet. She's headed back to New Orleans as we write, but will be back in Grand Isle later tonight. (Here's some more background from the local media, and more pix.) UPDATE: Mac just called and noted that there are still kids on the beach, "splashing around in this huge sheen."

This begs many questions, such as:

Why is law enforcement trying to stifle coverage of this horror? And, as our own Kate Sheppard (follow her on Twitter here) asks: Why is BP still in charge? Kate has also been following developments intensely, live tweeting the BP hearings, and breaking the latest news—ranging from concerns over these so-called chemical dispersants to the rig owner's efforts to weasel out of responsibility. She's covered BP's fumbling containment efforts, its second Gulf rig, and its shameless attempts to downplay the problem: 5,000 barrels a day indeed! That's how much BP is now recovering, and this thing is so far from being over.

You can keep on top of Kate's and Mac's dispatches on our home page, Facebook page, and by following their Twitter streams.

UPDATE: Here's a video showing how sticky the stuff really is:

This is something that puzzles me. If the oil is that bad, then why have we seen so few videos on you tube from private people? Could it be that the opposite is true..instead of hiding the severity... that they are making more of this for some reason?

I just posted on another thread that the videos being released now looks like dredge spoil, not oil.

Where the heck is the black billowing viscous substance with methane bubbles? This looks like the release end of a dredge pipe effluent. Is it just me?

Excellent idea scrump.

The alphabet media and BP should be f@@king ignored.

This is unfortunately a good example of how regular people can stick 2 fingers up to the media and show the world what is really going on.

It just may shame them into telling the truth themselves.

No, the pic is from a local radio website I frequent.

In a straight line, out home is about 50 or 60 miles from the gulf...no oil yet.
