I believe that the phosgene gas is a huge concern there. We all know that Mr. Wheeler supposedly had information on left overs from Iraq being stored in Arkansas. While I was on vacation in FL. Last week I did some investigating on Phosgene and found that it is also used in the oil industry and is potentially stored in salt domes. It also reacts badly with chlorinated hydrocarbons. I also found links between potentially stored left overs from Iraq being sent to LA. Phosgene has a list of horrible effects on the human body as stated previously on this thread.

If there is phosgene stored in the domes there, we are in a world of hurt.

The worst-case distances to the endpoints for the toxic substances are:

Phosgene is the chemical compound with the formula COCl2. This colorless gas gained infamy as a chemical weapon during World War I. It is also a valued industrial reagent and building block in synthesis of pharmaceuticals and other organic compounds...

Re: Don't make ASSUMPTIONS; try to Understand.
I was following the links from another thread about a confirmed report of crimean congo, ended up turning into a several hour research project

There are 4 levels of biological safety labs, with bio-level 4 (bsl-4) being the most dangerous. No cure. No vaccines. Not always fatal perhaps, but bsl-4 does have a very high mortality rate. You can only treat the symptoms of the patient...theres no cure for the disease itself.

[link to hpac.com]

All hemorrhagic diseases are level 4.

There are only 30 bsl-4 labs in the world, and 15 of those are found in the united states.

One in massachusetts, 5 in maryland, 1 in kansas, 2 in georgia, 1 in ohio, 1 in montana, 1 in virgina, and 3 in texas.

I checked into where these facilities were specifically located. Which organization(s) they were run by. Who they reported to, etc..

Most were exactly what you'd expect to find. Medical research facilities & development teams…university & teaching laboratories. …& a few government biological/chemical studies. Nothing at all unusual. Until I got to the 3 texas labs, and I seen that one of the labs listed was the only independently owned/operated bsl-4 laboratory in the world.

Private doesn’t mean ‘with disregard’, but there is a different atmosphere. Different priorities. Plus, you're not held to the same level of accountability. You’ve got more wiggle-room. More flexibility. Less moral, public opinion, and political obstacles.

Another huge difference is that privately run labs tend to focus their time, attention, and their funding on what is ~~profitable~~

But the level 4 license made no sense to me, because they are strictly regulated….and they’re regulated for a reason. You don’t want just any Tom, Dick, or Harry messing around with that stuff because there is a good possibility of a major pandemic or ELE if handled improperly.

I'm prohibited by city ordinance from owning a pot-bellied pig because someone listed them as being a 'dangerous & unpredictable' animal……yet someone in texas can juggle ebola, anthrax and hantavirus? Really?

Yeah….something didn't sound right to me either....so I dug some more.

Of the 3 bsl-4 labs listed in Texas, two sounded legit. Just one stood out. It’s the 'Texas Biomedical Research Institute’ located in San Antonia. There’s also a separate research lab on the same property…..and it’s called ‘Southwest Primate Research Institute. They do extensive (and not very nice) testing on primates and are in a near constant battle with PETA over cruel & inhumane treatment of the animals.

This place is huge…200+ acres. The number of people working there varied depending on which site I visited. But (roughly) 4-5,000 would be a good estimate.

In May 2012, they started a huge expansion project that will add another 15 research buildings. When completed, it will add an additional 70,000 square feet of research, development & office space. With over 2 million sq ft total.

So I dug some more.....

This independently run bsl-4 specializes in genetics & virology/immunology research with additional interests being listed for bio-terrorism. It lists itself as having over 4000 'non-human primates' in house for testing & research purposes. I've never heard lab animals described that way (non-human) but maybe it’s an industry term.

I’m not exactly sure how it ties in to this specifically, but Craig Venter’s name kept coming up on these web sites. Other names too that was consistant with both research centers. Maybe not that unusual considering how specialized this field is. There may/may not be a connection there, but it is a bit curious and something I'll study when I have more time.

You can tell a lot about cooperate america by who the major contributors are. Who are the lobbyists. Who’s giving the largest donations. Because nearly 100% of the time, those that invest the most into a business, will expect the most out of it. It's not personal...it's business. Simple math.

Much of the funding comes from corporate grants which includes Pfizer and some other big pharmaceutical companies. Plus there are pages and pages of private donations that will take me a couple of days to go through.
See who's connected with each reearch facility then figure out who has ties to both...because from what I've read the past few hours, there might be a little meat here somewhere.

So let’s review:

**There’s only 1 privately owned research and development laboratory in the world that is classified as being a bio safety lab #4. This lab, although not held accountable to the public as other bsl-4 labs, has a license to handle the most dangerous viral & bacterial samples on this planet. This lab receives unknown amts of govt subsidies yet is not held accountable for how these funds are spent because they are a privately run/operated laboratory. This lab is also heavily funded by the pharmaceutical companies, especially Pfizer, and other big fortune 500 companies.

**There is a different research and development facility located within the same property management group which is heavily funded in specialized pharmaceutical and bio/chemical testing on primates. This lab has ties to the airline industry and the military and was just awarded a 5+ million dollar contract from DARPA .

**and...just in case you're not familiar with the geography of the area…..San Antonio is west of Baton Rouge. Almost in a direct straight line.

All my links for verification are posted. If you have a hard time finding anything specific, lemme know and I’ll try and point you to the right site/page number. When I have time, I'll pick this up again, and see where it leads me.

I'm trying to understand this as well. I absolutely have enough faith in our local officials that at the minimum, they would tell us not to drink the water (which I think most are not doing anyway), and provide bottled water for anyone that can't afford it.

I'm reading the letter over and over to try to understand what doesn't sit right with me. We have been told numerous times of risk of fire and explosion already, thus the mandatory evacuation.

But there has been nothing presented to us regarding these high levels of Methane, and that just doesn't fit with how they have been keeping us informed and updated.
 Quoting: Patassa


Patassa, been following the thread and the information you have been providing as a local. Am confused on your position as stated above and want to make sure I am clear about your first-hand perspective.

Why do you feel you “absolutely” have faith that local officials would inform the community about tainted drinking water when you say they have presented “nothing” about documented dangerous methane levels in well water? In other word, either the local officials’ intention is to release all available information to the community in the interest of safety - or it isn't.

a video of midway done 2005 mentioned the research of alien pathogens with a main scientist being unable to stabilise the and unlock the alien mithocondria!

Until may 17th 2002 he has been able to increase the Incubation period drasticly, which allowed them to play with the mythocondria and hybertised it with Human DNA!

2002, well in 2003 Synthia was ready to be dispersed! but was not used before 2010. They were waiting for the right opportunity to spread it like the disease it is! Bp oil spill!

Interestingly enough, The virus mentioned in the game prototype is a very advanced intelligent black,red slime! They call it "Blacklight". In the Game Area-51,It's the same virus! just no name for it.

in the movie X-files:fight the future. It is the same Black slime pathogen, which exibits the same caterestics! Then again in the movie prometeus, you got the very same plague with same specifics!

The specifics are, Increased incubation time, Lower mortality rate, Slow start,Fast vector spreading of infection. Host has symptoms of fever fallowed by increased agressivity, Increased strenght, increased resistance to Acids. Seems particuliarly Weak to direct electricity inputs, aka tasers.( Tasers are Way more deadly on infected host,Rather then 9mm.)

Getting ready to sign out for the day but wanted to post a bit more of what I found first. If someone has the time to look further into this, great but if not I will try to pick it back up in the morning.

Found a link to New Orleans with the genome mapping here...
[link to www.aspergillusflavus.org]

The USDA/ARS/SRRC in New Orleans, Louisiana provided its Expressed Sequence Tag (EST) genomic database for A. flavus as a matching resource towards the complete genomic characterization of A. flavus..

What they cause/or are being mapped out for: [link to www.genome.gov]

Aspergillus flavus Source of aflatoxin in food stuffs and cause of human aspergillosis

Aspergillus nidulans Key model system for study of genetics and cell biology

Aspergillus terreus Major source of lovastatin
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 18987435


[link to www.nlm.nih.gov]

Lovastatin is used together with diet, weight-loss, and exercise to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke and to decrease the chance that heart surgery will be needed in people who have heart disease or who are at risk of developing heart disease. Lovastatin is also used to decrease the amount of cholesterol (a fat-like substance) and other fatty substances in the blood. Lovastatin is in a class of medications called HMG CoA reductase inhibitors (statins). It works by slowing the production of cholesterol in the body to decrease the amount of cholesterol that may build up on the walls of the arteries and block blood flow to the heart, brain, and other parts of the body.
 Quoting: alexisj9


And Lovastatin is well-known for muscle breakdown, which is why you have to notify your Dr. with first signs of muscle pain. This is called rhabdomyolysis, literally breaking down of the muscle. Simvastatin dissolves cholesterol, but dissolves muscles, too. I've seen patients die from taking Lovastatin, and personally wouldn't go anywhere near it.

Pardon if it's been posted already, if you haven't listened it's a must hear. Forward to 8mins in for the beginning...

Pain and heartbreak are but illusions that we allow our mind to create out of fear, live in love and from your heart and you'll realize that all is as it should be. The lessons we learn from loss are meant to be taken with wisdom and happiness not sadness and remorse. New strength, new love, new life, new wisdom and lessons that propel us forward on our journey back to unity, universal consciousness and true unconditional love.

Patassa, been following the thread and the information you have been providing as a local. Am confused on your position as stated above and want to make sure I am clear about your first-hand perspective.

Why do you feel you “absolutely” have faith that local officials would inform the community about tainted drinking water when you say they have presented “nothing” about documented dangerous methane levels in well water? In other word, either the local officials’ intention is to release all available information to the community in the interest of safety - or it isn't.

Read what I wrote again. I said I was trying to understand, that something about the letter didn't sit right with me, and yes, I absolutely have faith in local officials BUT, nothing has been said about the methane in the water, and THAT doesn't fit with how they have been previosuly communicating with us. I'm saying I'm confused because this isn't the norm, or type of communication/informing us of things that has kept that faith going.

They did tell you about the methane in the water, natural gas has been the term normally used. Natural gas = Methane.
 Quoting: alexisj9



Yes, I know they did. As I said above, I've heard those exact same words quite a while back. Heard the lady from DHH say it herself at one of the meetings. That's why I don't understand all the panic about it now, as if it's new news, rather than simply DHHs "official" report. That might be why there has not been an official update about it on the parish website, and it's not that officials are "not telling the people". Does that make sense?

I mean everyone knows it's methane, including the bubbling in the bayous. That has never been a secret.

Yes it makes sense. This is just the report of the test. It's not new just confirmation.

Re: Don't make ASSUMPTIONS; try to Understand.
I was following the links from another thread about a confirmed report of crimean congo, ended up turning into a several hour research project

There are 4 levels of biological safety labs, with bio-level 4 (bsl-4) being the most dangerous. No cure. No vaccines. Not always fatal perhaps, but bsl-4 does have a very high mortality rate. You can only treat the symptoms of the patient...theres no cure for the disease itself.

Methanex Proceeds With Louisiana Project

" to proceed with the relocation of a one million tonne methanol plant from its Chile site to Geismar, Louisiana"

"Geismar is an excellent location for a methanol project. It possesses world-class infrastructure, skilled workers and is a positive, low-risk environment in which to do business. It is also a large methanol-consuming region which offers the potential for substantial logistics cost savings. We have commenced dismantling of the plant and expect to receive all key permits by the end of 2012"

"The timing of this project is also excellent"

[link to brnoticias.info]


Geismar is west of BR also.
In every operation, whether planning it or executing it, you can never count on luck; but you have to accept it, and recognize it when it’s there.
