Re: Something Just Went BEZERK in the Gulf of Mexico. The US Navy just sunk a French Submarine
interesting item!!

article, April 2018: Scientists accidentally create mutant enzyme that eats plastic bottles

The breakthrough, spurred by the discovery of plastic-eating bugs at a Japanese dump, could help solve the global plastic pollution crisis

Scientists have created a mutant enzyme that breaks down plastic drinks bottles – by accident. The breakthrough could help solve the global plastic pollution crisis by enabling for the first time the full recycling of bottles.

The new research was spurred by the discovery in 2016 of the first bacterium that had naturally evolved to eat plastic, at a waste dump in Japan. Scientists have now revealed the detailed structure of the crucial enzyme produced by the bug.

The international team then tweaked the enzyme to see how it had evolved, but tests showed they had inadvertently made the molecule even better at breaking down the PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastic used for soft drink bottles. “What actually turned out was we improved the enzyme, which was a bit of a shock,” said Prof John McGeehan, at the University of Portsmouth, UK, who led the research. “It’s great and a real finding.”


The mutant enzyme takes a few days to start breaking down the plastic – far faster than the centuries it takes in the oceans. But the researchers are optimistic this can be speeded up even further and become a viable large-scale process.

“What we are hoping to do is use this enzyme to turn this plastic back into its original components, so we can literally recycle it back to plastic,” said McGeehan. “It means we won’t need to dig up any more oil and, fundamentally, it should reduce the amount of plastic in the environment.”

I dont think the western alliances have this tech, but the Chinese do, and it is referred to as SIM. Solar Initiation Module. Has been discussed on the BEZERK thread for a few years now, but never with any conclusion as the OP passed away, and no new intel has emerged.

But the OP posted that China was able to use this tech, which was given to them by non-earthers. To what end we could only speculate.

Hiya ~T~!

Yes, quite a few EQs in OZ. Big one in WA with a large cluster around Lake Muir. Looking to see if fracking is going on in the area, or US installations. The land all through that area is riddled with caves, with some of the longest cave dives ever recorded along the Great Australian Bight. (also nuclear tests carried out in this region by the British)

The ones in NSW, whilst not as large, am also looking at frack sites.

Re: Something Just Went BEZERK in the Gulf of Mexico. The US Navy just sunk a French Submarine
Hi all. Some of you might recall some ideas I had a while ago, regarding how I viewed flux transfer events between the Sun and Earth, and for that matter all planets and stars.

I viewed them as conversations, or transfers of not only energy, but data, instruction, and communication.

Much the same way we hear whale and dolphin clicks, only to slow them down and realise there is a complex language in play.

With the recent shut down of the solar observatory, I was pretty sure it had nothing to do with solar activity, and more to do with what may have been seen at the two prominent AF bases within eyeshot of the hill top. (Holloman and White Sands)

With so much interest and perspective, I'm now thinking it's a case of both. Both Sun activity and something that cannot be seen by the public at either of these bases.

The scuttlebutt is that the recent activity on the Sun was man made. We know from Aco's hints about SIM (and elaborated on by Breezy, both here and tcp) that the Chinese had access to technology that could 'do something' with the Sun. Most folks assumed a weapon. I never did. I think it's well beyond that. Beyond childish games.

Well, I'm thinking that they were successful in having a chat, and that Earth gave a reply too, either using the global conciousness or artificially.

Ice Cube (remember that?!) and A.N.I.T.A based in Antarctica, have both recently discovered an amazing anomaly.

Rare and bizarre particles have been detected not only entering Earth's atmosphere from space, but also leaving the atmosphere, leaving from the Antarctic ice itself!

[link to www.livescience.com (secure)]

I've also been a firm believer in the ice sheets being memory banks for the planet, both historical, and to use for seeding cellular activity through water ingestion down the track. A long, subtle, drawn out process. Maybe the mechanics behind evolution? - but driven by the link to our planet, and our planet's link to the universe.

Could the Chinese have worked out how to use this tech, and as a result, control our evolution and destiny?

Big idea.. but then again so is bezerk.

Oh, meant to add, the Jupiter sized orb that left the Sun recently, I'm wondering if it is about to have a massive influence on 'things' stored at both Holloman and Whitesands.

Kind of like the scene from Independence day where the salvaged ship suddenly comes to life when the aliens get here.

Cant have Joe public seeing something like that now, especially if it is out of control.

- or maybe we're about to get a new moon? I've heard that bandied about too, that by the time the orb gets here, it will have cooled and shrunk down to a moon sized object.

Interesting times eh.

Re: Something Just Went BEZERK in the Gulf of Mexico. The US Navy just sunk a French Submarine
Hi DMG.

OK here's one to ponder.

IMHO, the fracking craze (pun) is a cover to pump toxic materials down into known oil reserves, or entry point that lead to reserves and colonies of out of control nano bacteria, either man made, or taken over by AUg1.

Pretty much the only land based mechanism to control the spread, and siphon off the gasses created by the colonies ans they move through and ingest parts of the oils.
(Ocean colonies are a totally different issue.)

So most folks who look into fracking see that quite regularly, EQ issues often pop up not long after the set up.

The Assumption is that the pressurisation of the strata, and subsequent shattering leads to instability, and eventually a need to correct/balance out pressures, hence the EQ.

But, was just thinking in relation to my above posts (and DMG's quote of mine) what if the EQ's are an attempt to connect or splash-zone on land as a distress call?

Information flowing both ways.

I'm sorry to post such a horrible event, but I truly believe these events are no longer natural, and rather, are controlled and directed, and hence, tied in to this thread.

The EQs and tsunamis we have been seeing over the last decade are all tests IMHO, to the event that Edgar Cayce saw play out.

Wow, thatnks for doing some digging on it James.

I had no idea it had gotten to that stage.

There may be another angle to it you know. If it can form some kind of direct link to our body system, an artificial link, that we already have with each other and the planet itself, all be it subconcious, then this artificial link might be an attempt to link with AUg1 when things get to a tipping point?

I've given up on who is good and who is bad, who is infecting us, who is trying to stop it etc. Its a big mess, and I think some of the concepts we have traditionally seen as Mr Bad guy, may indeed be an attempt by some faction to fight back. Of course the media will portray them as bad guys.

Not saying for one second this stuff is good. But what if this artificial network is an attempt to draw off an attack?

I've always subscribed to the idea that oil saturation is a mechanism to create an environment for something else to thrive and take over, and in so doing take over the planet's concious.

If something 'shinier' can draw off a basic intelligently programmed life form, then its a counter measure.

Mind you JA didnt seem so happy with it, but that was more in relation to how they could use it on him. Aussie aside, I really feel for the guy, and that we live for the shit he digs up, but dont support him. I guess we cant support him on some levels. I hate our stupid control systems.

But we're clever folks, and someone will come up with something at the 11th hour I'm sure, just like in war of the worlds.

If they dont, well, I doubt we'll know anything different.

Re: Something Just Went BEZERK in the Gulf of Mexico. The US Navy just sunk a French Submarine
The Indian Navy has spotted a Chinese attack submarine in the Indian Ocean, the first such sighting since last year’s Doklam border standoff, said an official familiar with the development. The Chinese navy has deployed a submarine, a Type O39A Yuan class boat, in the ocean for the first time in over a year.

China claims that such deployments are in support of its anti-piracy operations in the Gulf of Aden. The submarine is accompanied by a rescue vessel.

In an interview to HT in May, Navy chief Admiral Sunil Lanba said the People’s Liberation Army-Navy (PLAN) is here to stay in the Indian Ocean and its military movement had fueled concerns about China’s intent in the region.

Something really IS going bezerk in the Gulf of Mexico!!!

cryscaredgaahahhhalone

An oil spill you've never heard of could become one of the biggest environmental disasters in the US!!!!!


In 2010, the Deepwater Horizon oil tragedy commanded the nation's attention for months. Eleven lives were lost and communities around the Gulf of Mexico ground to a halt under hundreds of millions of gallons of oil. Yet, lurking underneath the fresh disaster, an older spill was spewing ever faithfully forth: A leak that began when another oil platform was damaged six years earlier.

The Taylor oil spill is still surging after all this time; dumping what's believed to be tens of thousands of gallons into the Gulf per day since 2004. By some estimates, the chronic leak could soon be larger, cumulatively, than the Deepwater disaster, which dumped up to 176.4 million gallons (or 4.2 million barrels) of oil into the Gulf. That would also make the Taylor spill one of the largest offshore environmental disasters in US history.

In September, the Department of Justice submitted an independent study into the nature and volume of the spill that claims previous evaluations of the damage, submitted by the platform's owner Taylor Energy Co. and compiled by the Coast Guard, significantly underestimated the amount of oil being let loose. According to the filing, the Taylor spill is spewing anywhere from 10,000 to 30,000 gallons of oil a day.

As for how much oil has been leaked since the beginning of the spill, it's hard to say. An estimate from SkyTruth, a satellite watchdog organization, put the total at 855,000 to 4 million gallons by the end of 2017. If you do the math from the DOJ's filing, the number comes out astronomically higher: More than 153 million gallons over 14 years.

A community called to action

The Taylor spill started when an oil platform belonging to Taylor Energy was damaged and sank during a mudslide caused by Hurricane Ivan in 2004. However, it wasn't until 2010, after the BP oil spill, that people really started to notice something was wrong.

According to local activists, the warnings didn't come from the Coast Guard, the government, or any oil company. They came from people around the Gulf community who simply saw it with their own eyes.


Revisit the BP oil spill, 5 years later 01:48

Marylee Orr is the executive director of the Louisiana Environmental Action Network (LEAN). She says in 2010, people conducting aerial surveillance near the BP oil spill started to notice another shape, a shadow of an oil slick adjacent to the main spill that didn't seem to match up.

"They said it couldn't have been coming from the BP spill, and sure enough, it wasn't," she told CNN. "It was coming from the Taylor Well."

Orr says it was difficult for the community to get answers as to what was happening with the spill. Local organizations, including LEAN, began conducting flyovers of the area, compiling data and pressuring Taylor Energy for answers.

"We had to do a lot of research ourselves to find out about it," she says. "How long is it? How wide is it? These are the things we struggled with. I feel like our organization, and other folks and other organizations, made it an issue."

"In 2010, nobody really knew. And maybe no one would know now, if there weren't citizens and non-profit organizations who were just trying to be good stewards," she says.

In 2012, LEAN, along with the Apalachicola Riverkeeper and several other Louisiana environmental organizations, filed suit against Taylor Energy, kicking off years of litigation between activist organizations, the oil company and various government entities. Taylor settled the lawsuit with LEAN, et. al in 2015.

In 2004, mudslides caused by Hurricane Ivan sank oil production platforms owned by Taylor Energy. These oil wells still haven’t been capped and have been slowly leaking oil into the Gulf for the last 14 years.

The site, which sits 12 miles off the coast of Louisiana, has been spilling between 10,000 and 30,000 gallons, or between 300 and 700 barrels, of oil per day. At this rate, the Taylor spill is set to bypass BP’s Deepwater Horizon as the worst offshore environmental disaster ever.

“This is one of those dirty little stories that has been hidden for too long,” John Amos, founder of the nonprofit environmental watchdog group SkyTruth, told CNN. He added that area locals have known what’s happening for years, but the spill never managed to gain national attention.

“That’s the problem with these chronic, slow-moving things. They don’t slap you in the face like the BP oil spill did.”

Re: Something Just Went BEZERK in the Gulf of Mexico. The US Navy just sunk a French Submarine
In 2010 and 2011, Taylor Energy used a leased drill rig called the Ocean Saratoga to slowly find and plug some of the damaged wells (only 9 of the 25 wells at the site have been plugged). Additionally, three underwater containment domes and an underwater collection and containment system were put in place at the wellhead area to try and capture any remaining oil.

Taylor Energy’s next step was to sue the government to try and recover more than $400 million from the trust they had set up previously. The lawsuit is in limbo amid negotiations over the company’s remaining responsibility and the feasibility of further clean-up. Documents filed by the Justice Department on December 15th revealed new evidence of two plumes of oil and gas resulting in an “ongoing oil release,” bringing some renewed hope Taylor Energy will be held accountable for its mess.

CUMULATIVE SPILL ESTIMATES

SkyTruth became aware of the chronic leak from the Taylor Energy site in 2010 while analyzing satellite imagery of the BP / Deepwater Horizon disaster. We’ve reported on slicks coming from the Taylor Energy site dozens of times in the years since, and in 2012 we released a cumulative spill report estimating that between 300,000 and 1.4 million gallons of oil had leaked from the site since 2004. But with offshore drilling in the Atlantic looming once again, we thought now would be a good time to revisit those calculations and reconsider the risks that offshore drilling poses for coastal communities.

Our initial report estimated the cumulative amount of oil that had leaked from the Taylor Energy site over the period 2004-2011. We’ve updated those calculations to include years 2012-2017, finding that:

>>Crude oil has been leaking continuously from this site for more than 13 years; and

>>The estimated cumulative volume of crude oil spilled into the Gulf of Mexico from this chronic leak over the period 2004 – 2017 now stands between 855,421 and 3,991,963 gallons.

NASA Moves To Save the World From Yellowstone Supervolcano Threat

"Brian Wilcox of the NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab explained to BBC that the US space agency plans to “drill up to 10km down into the supervolcano, and pump down water at high pressure,” thus slowly extracting heat from it".

We have some seriously weird projects going on atm...

If we saw this 5 years ago, the thread would be going mental.

Wish Six Sting Woodie was around....

Wouldn't pumping high volumes of water (infected water maybe?) into it increase the pressure down there? Regardless of whether it lowers the temp, if it increases the overall pressure, that sounds like it could exacerbate the situation....
 Quoting: James-XF


I dreamed that when Yellowstone blows, it will follow the tUnnels and DUMBS and fault lines, ending by blowing pillars of fire in every major city. No Damage beyond a sunken caldera at Yellowstone.

Great dream!
