BP Oil Spill Two Years Later, Still in Court, Fish Deformed, a New Oil Slick & Obama’s Slick Solutions

April 20, 2010, began with an explosion 40 miles off shore at The Deepwater Horizon oil rig.  Whether you call it the BP oil spill, the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, the BP oil disaster, the Macondo blowout, the Transocean, Halliburton screwup, it was the largest accidental oil spill in the history of the petroleum industry. The explosion killed 11 men working on the platform and injured 17 others.  Most won’t remember the names, only the fact that for three months oil spewed into the Gulf of Mexico creating a huge environmental and economic disaster.  We remember them here- via http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2010-05-25-oil-spill-victims-memorial_N.htm

RIP.

It took until July 15, 2010 to stop the estimated 5 million barrels of crude oil from escaping the gushing wellhead.  What caused it and who was going to pay for it has been lingering ever since.

Unusual pressure readings in the hours before the blowout indicated there was “a very large abnormality” in the well, said a memo released by the House Energy Committee. That suggested that a cement plug, which was supposed to seal off the shaft, had not done so, the memo said.  However, the information was ignored and the drilling crew began removing the drilling mud that was holding back the high-pressure oil and gas. A BP investigator told Congress that the decision was a “fundamental mistake,” according to the memo.

What it comes down to is human error.  Two years later-

BP and a committee representing more than 100,000 plaintiffs have agreed on a blueprint to settle billions of dollars in unresolved economic, property, and medical damage claims….The total cost of the settlement, the company estimates, will reach about $7.8 billion, which makes it one of the largest class-action settlements in U.S. history…The trial has the potential of forcing BP to pay a far greater sum than what was resolved Wednesday. For example, Clean Water Act liabilities could total as much as $17.6 billion….BP has already paid $6 billion to oil spill victims through a $20 billion trust it established last year. The company also says it will provide $57 million to promote Gulf Coast tourism.  http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Justice/2012/0418/BP-oil-spill-settlement-Justice-for-100-000-Gulf-Coast-victims

If you feel like you may have been damaged, the deadline to file claims under the new resolution is April 22, 2014.  At least the big oil players don’t seem in any danger of running out of money anytime soon.

BP reported an improved quarterly profit on Tuesday (Feb. 7, 2012) and said a return of operational momentum has allowed it to boost its dividend.  http://www.cnbc.com/id/46287263/BP_Profit_Jumps_Company_Boosts_Dividend

BP chemical plant
Pat Sullivan / AP
 The energy giant posted fourth-quarter replacement cost profit of $7.61 billion, up from $4.61 billion during the same period last year.

BP’s annual report for 2010 notes the firm posted a loss of $3.7 billion, largely due to a total charge of $40.9 billion incurred by the Gulf of Mexico oil spill disaster.  But in the fourth quarter of 2010, BP actually pulled in a profit of $4.4 billion dollars, which has prompted the company to pay a small dividend of 7 U.S. cents on the share to its shareholders for the fourth quarter. This is pretty amazing for a company that was in the cross-hairs of many a politician, environmentalist, and banker for the better part of last year, thanks to its involvement in the worst oil spill disaster in U.S. history.  http://www.fastcompany.com/1722885/bps-profitable-fourth-quarter-oil-spill-what-oil-spill

Halliburton reported net income of $627 million, or 68 cents per share for the first three months of the year. (2012) That compares with $511 million, or 56 cents per share, for the same part of 2011. Revenue increased by 30 percent to $6.87 billion, including a record $4.17 billion in North America.

Shares rose by $1.51, or 4.6 percent, to $34.17.

Halliburton’s results include a $300 million charge related to its role in the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill. The company had provided cementing services for BP PLC on the well that suffered the disastrous blowout. While it continues to spar with BP over who should take responsibility for the disaster, Halliburton said it needs to set aside funds for “probable losses” from future lawsuits and settlements.

BP expects to pay more than $37 billion to cover damages and other costs, and it says Halliburton should pay a share of that. BP has collected several billion dollars from minority owners and other contractors associated with the well. Halliburton maintains that BP, as the well’s owner, is responsible for causing the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history.  http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5i6ovy8614AK-acxmtP1hE2uRk9pQ?docId=5ac20c7b17db4382ad400f59651fab61

“Halliburton intentionally destroyed the evidence related to its nonprivileged cement testing, in part because it wanted to eliminate any risk that this evidence would be used against it at trial,” the BP filing says.  http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/2011/1206/Halliburton-destroyed-evidence-after-Gulf-oil-spill-BP-charges

America needs oil, we do not need another incident like this.  While the BP incident resulted in changes to offshore-drilling regulations and increased vigilance about oil spills, The U.S. Coast Guard just last week spotted another oil slick in the Gulf.

Scientists can’t yet determine where the 10-mile stretch of oil sheen found Wednesday in the Gulf of Mexico originated, but they have ways of finding out. Shell oil is investigating.  http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/2012/0412/Mysterious-Gulf-oil-sheen-Where-did-it-come-from

Shell said later Wednesday that a 10-square-mile layer of an unknown substance was floating between its Mars and Ursa platforms, which are some of the largest oil and gas-producing facilities in the Gulf.  Shell said it confirmed that there are “no well control issues” associated with its drilling operations in the area. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702304444604577339153651214084.html

What are the odds that 10 miles of an unknown substance wouldn’t be oil from a nearby platform?  Guess there is the off chance a 747 plane dropped its fuel.  Uh, huh. Why is Shell leading the investigation?  “As simple as it may seem,the law prevents the government from just taking over,  After the 1989 Exxon Valdez spill in Alaska, Congress dictated that oil companies be responsible for dealing with major accidents – including paying for all cleanup – with oversight by federal agencies.  http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/05/24/bp-tells-epa-to-shove-it-oil-spill-cleanup/

BP used at least 1.9 million gallons of toxic Corexit dispersals to sink the oil. They burned the fuel, and watched  it wash up on shores and onto the seabed. The cleanup and monitoring will continue.  Is it any wonder that fishermen and scientists are finding all sorts of weird sea creatures.  Shrimp with no eyes, crabs rotting from the inside.  All sorts of  seafood that we humans eat.   A must read comes from http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/features/2012/04/201241682318260912.html

…chemicals named polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), released from BP’s submerged oil, are likely to blame, due to the fact that the fish with lesions he is finding are from “a wide spatial distribution that is spatially coordinated with oil from the Deepwater Horizon, both surface oil and subsurface oil.

President Obama, who actually managed to visit the area long after Jimmy Buffett did, has managed to come up with the idea that the oil industry does not need tax breaks.  He vetoed the Keystone Pipeline, and has barely issued any new permits for drilling on federal lands.  His most recent thought on how to curb the rising costs of gas?  To spend $52 million on further regulations in the oil futures markets.

Obama wants Congress to strengthen federal supervision of oil markets, increase penalties for market manipulation and empower regulators to increase the amount of money energy traders are required to put behind their transactions. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-250_162-57415230/obama-calls-on-congress-to-help-police-oil-markets/ The federal gas tax — 18.4 cents a gallon for gasoline, 24.4 cents for diesel.  This year we managed to export more than we imported.  For every mile you don’t drive to burn up gas, the government makes no money and that means no new bridges and infrastructure.

The slowdown in permit issuance for drilling on federal land is totally and completely unrelated to the price of gasoline.  The White House keeps telling us that every time the subject comes up.  As we know from our Acadaemia Institute economics lessons, increased supply never lowers price.  http://hotair.com/archives/2012/03/27/video-drilling-permits-on-federal-land-declining-under-obama/

Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar, during a visit to the Fort Berthold Reservation Tuesday, unveiled initiatives to speed up drilling permits and leases on federal lands.

Salazar announced the Bureau of Land Management, an agency of the Interior Department, will implement new automated tracking systems that could reduce the review period for drilling permits by two-thirds and expedite the sale and processing of federal oil and gas leases.

According to Interior Department information:  The new system will track permit applications through the entire review process and quickly flag any missing or incomplete information greatly reducing the back-and-forth between BLM and industry applicants currently needed to amend paper applications.  The new drilling permit system is expected to be fully online by May 2013.  http://www.minotdailynews.com/page/content.detail/id/564504/Interior-secretary-to-speed-up-drilling-permits–leases-on-federal-lands.html?nav=5010

By May of 2013? That’s 13 months from now!  Ridiculous. All the hoops and regulations seem to be online now at the BLM website including a free download of the publication Surface Operating Standards and Guidelines for Oil and Gas Exploration and Development (commonly referred to as The Gold Book) was developed to assist operators by providing information on the requirements for obtaining permit approval and conducting environmentally responsible oil and gas operations on Federal lands and on private surface over Federal minerals (split-estate).

Not to be all doom and gloomy, there is a bit of good news.

Oil in New York has technical support along its 100-day moving average, around $101.93 a barrel today, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Futures have been trading above this indicator for the past week. Buy orders tend to be clustered near chart-support levels.

U.S. crude stockpiles climbed to 369 million barrels, the highest level since May 27, the Energy Department data showed. Refineries operated at less than 85 percent of capacity for a second week, according to the report.- Bloomberg http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-04-19/oil-trades-near-one-week-low-in-new-york-on-rising-u-s-supplies.html

Stay tuned and have a good day, one day it will be your last.  God Bless.

When is BP, the Obama Administration and the Main Stream Media going to get their heads out of the rabbit hole?  They can’t.  Not only is the hole is filled with black oil, deceit, distortion and outright lies. Alice in Wonderland, and all her little friends would be dead were the hole in the Gulf of Mexico.

Albert Einstein said, “After Hydrogen, Stupidity is the most common element in the Universe.”  He sure hit the nail on the head. 

Does the media, politicians and BP think Americans are stupid?  Yep, and there is a whole bunch of stupidity to go around, starting with the people who voted for Obama.  That aside, events at the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill are a mess.

In May, BP CEO Tony Hayward said the spill was “relatively tiny”,  and the environmental effects would be minimal.

Since the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded and sank April 20, BP has estimated 5,000 barrels of oil were flowing from the underwater well into the Gulf. Independent scientists believe the crude oil is spewing more like 95,000 barrels a day.

They have syphoned it, capped it, top killed it, sprayed the dispersal COREXIT at it, lit it on fire, junk shot it and in the last malady, capped it again claiming that their is no oil leaking. 

Paul “Red” Adair, the now deceased famous oil firefighter must be rolling in his grave at this epic madness.  Enter Pat Campell, Adairs’ colleague who has now been employed by BP to cap the well beneath the ruined Deepwater Horizon oil rig. 

These days, Campbell says that disaster relief has become a more collegiate affair. He also told The New York Times that helping BP cap Deepwater Horizon involves dealing with meddling managers and politicians. “Today things are done by committees. The executive management gets involved. They may or may not have any technical competence.” That can make things complicated, he said, but “it generally works out fine”. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/bp-brings-in-red-adairs-successor-to-stop-oil-leak-1982899.html

Well it sure has not worked out fine.  Matt Simmons says BP covering up MASSIVE HOLE miles away, and the cap test is “absurd.”

Back to the COREXIT for a minute.  

The Taiwanese super oil skimmer known as “A Whale” has been deemed ineffective by the US Coast Guard. It sucked up only negligible amounts of oil during its test run in the Gulf.  Maybe, just maybe it’s because the Corexit worked?  The EPA/FDA food tests say it is not showing up in fish, clams, oysters etc.

Surface dispersant used: more than 1.07 million gallons

Subsea dispersant used: more than 771,000 gallons http://www.bp.com/genericarticle.do?categoryId=9034409&contentId=7063771

Edward Overton, professor emeritus at Louisiana State University, talks about the potential environmental implications of the BP oil leak and the use of dispersants to help break up oil spilling into the Gulf of Mexico. Overton speaks with Lizzie O’Leary on Bloomberg Television’s “InsideTrack.” with Video worth a look at http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/video/2010/07/21/VI2010072102160.html

Overton claims that his findings are not showing low oxygen levels in the water.

In the meantime we’ve got a conspiracy, convinced that the spraying of COREXIT is for reasons other than “dispersing the oil” for the good of the planet. 

Monsanto … the company that helped bring Agent Orange into the world … Monsanto’s CFO, Carl Casale, is also a director at NALCO. Corexit is owned by NALCO, but really, by BP / Halliburton, somewhere in there. Incidentally, BP supplies a big portion of the fuel for America’s military, while Halliburton provides exclusive-multibillion-dollar-contract-style “logistical support” Good buddies, them! http://summerburkes.wordpress.com/2010/07/16/corexit-and-agent-orange-not-so-different-just-ask-monsanto/

Let us remind you from a previous article at http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/05/21/dispersants-epa-stops-use-oil-spill/

Nalco Company received nearly two million dollars in government contracts this year alone. http://www.governmentcontractswon.com/department/defense/ondeo_nalco_company_004962403.asp?yr=09 

2009 37/$1,874,232

Thinking of Clint Eastwood in The Good, The Bad and the Ugly? Or maybe Jack Nicholson’s rant, “You can’t handle the truth.”

Is COREXIT Oil Dispersant Eating Through Boats in the Gulf?

Another of  The Deepwater Horizon disaster hearings was canceled today in New Orleans, LA after previous day’s testimony provides little insight.

Though the hearings are public, they aren’t entirely transparent. Much of the discussion involves documents that aren’t being released in real time. In addition, the proceedings are conducted largely in the language of the offshore oil industry, which to the uninitiated might as well be code. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/07/21/AR2010072102113.html

The coded message in a nutshell is that we are screwed, no matter the blame or malfeasance.

A blogger has noticed that the oil giant altered a photograph of its Houston crisis room, cutting and pasting three underwater images into a wall of video feeds from remotely operated undersea vehicles. The altered photo is displayed prominently on the company’s Web site.

Via WaPo- http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/07/19/AR2010071905256.html

John Aravosis pointed out the alterations Monday evening on his Americablog.com and observed, “I guess if you’re doing fake crisis response, you might as well fake a photo of the crisis response center.” The photo doctoring comes as BP has promised transparency in a bid to regain the public’s trust.

Now come on- stupid is as stupid does!

Nothing will stop the Obama agenda though.  With a moratorium on off shore drilling and now him pushing a no coal agenda, someone want to tell me how the U.S. is going to meet it’s power and fuel needs?

Voted Obama? Embarrassed Yet?

Internet Censorship is coming your way.

How embarrassing that this country elected President Obama.  I don’t care for the white part of him or the black part.  Throw the race card right out the window.  I do find it admirable that voters can see past a persons color, and disgraceful that they couldn’t see what Joe The Plumber warned of the socialistic tendencies coming down the pike.  I don’t mean those stupid Recovery Signs down the Turnpike either.

Will Ahrcanum and similar web sites now be black listed by Google and the government new Internet police for saying I disagree with the President?  Should I fire myself for expressing my opinion? Does that constitute an Internet Crime?  http://www.cyberlawenforcement.org/

From day one, President Obama’s campaign was an orchestrated masterful manipulation of the press and continues to this day, as the Administration seems to be working towards an all out government run media including the Internet.  Transparency my ass.

The right to free speech, the communication of ideas and opinions has its history in numerous documents. John Locke established the individual as the unit of value and the bearer of rights to life, liberty, property and the pursuit of happiness. It is supposed to be the role of  Government to protect these rights, not take them away.  The First Amendment to the Constitution states,  “Congress shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press”.

You have to take your chances on the repercussions of having free speech though.  Can’t be yelling “Fire” in a theatre and common decency kind of things.  Helen Thomas broke protocol when sharing her personal views that the Jews in Israel should go home.  In response, she was forced into retirement as a columnist for the Hearst News Service. http://religionclause.blogspot.com/2010/06/helen-thomas-dean-of-white-house-press.html

Gen. Stanley McChrystal, a former black ops leader and commander of US and NATO forces in Afghanistan couldn’t keep his opinion to himself either.  Even prior to the Rolling Stone article put the end to his career, [sic, previous] “remarks earned him a smackdown from the president himself, who summoned the general to a terse private meeting aboard Air Force One. The message to McChrystal seemed clear: Shut the fuck up, and keep a lower profile.” http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/17390/119236

McChrystal may have been unimpressed with the commander-in-chief from the start, but the General worked for him. Not always smart to disrespect the boss.  The President on the other hand, is supposed to work for you and I and defend the Constitution, not against us or it. 

Fighting homegrown terrorism by monitoring Internet communications is a civil liberties trade-off the U.S. government must make to beef up national security, the nation’s homeland security chief said Friday. 

As terrorists increasingly recruit U.S. citizens, the government needs to constantly balance Americans’ civil rights and privacy with the need to keep people safe, said Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/06/18/napolitano-internet-monitoring-needed-fight-homegrown-terrorism/

I buy the nation’s security plea, not the censorship Kool-Aid sale. Not withstanding, I still hate referring to America as The Homeland.   Is there some sort of global conspiracy to limit free speech and on-line discussion?  There are Internet censorship bills in Australia, the U.K., and the U.S. with more to come.  Say nothing of the black holes where there is no Internet at all. 

Will America Turn into the Black Hole of The Internet?

 By a 3-2 vote, the FCC on June 16 — under the chairmanship of Julius “Caesar” Genachowski — moved the agency toward the power to regulate the transmission component of broadband Internet service. Genachowski — Obama’s Harvard law classmate — thus sets the table for regulating the Internet under rules that were written for the telephone company in the thirties. http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/vernon/100712

The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) has received fleeting public attention, yet it has been quietly evolving for a number of years.  On it’s face ACTA is described as a countermeasure directed at the rise of counterfeit goods, medicines and pirated copyright protected material, including “piracy over the Internet”.

If officially ratified, however, ACTA would mark the formation of a major new global legal infrastructure with relation to standards on intellectual property rights enforcement.  It would also see the formation of an international governing body to oversee implementation of the agreement. http://truth11.com/2010/07/12/acta-flagship-of-the-growing-internet-censorship-armada/

Obama Administration regulatory czar Cass Sunstein is on the record in support of the latest in a series of proposals to regulate political speech on the net. 

“The site’s of one point of view agree to provide links to sites of the other point of view. So if you’re reading a conservative magazine, they would provide a link to a liberal site. And vice versa, just to make it easy for people to access to competing views. Or maybe a popup on your screen that would show you an advertisement or maybe even a quick argument for a competing view

If we could get voluntary arrangements in that direction, it would be great and if we can’t get voluntary arrangements maybe Congress should hold hearings about mandates.” http://deathby1000papercuts.com/2010/05/obama-czar-cass-sunstein-internet-mandates-spread-the-link-love/

Government mandates for the Internet?  In his book Democracy and the Problem of Free Speech Sunstein says there is a need to reformulate First Amendment law. And recall Sunstein, ” has a secret aim to push a radical animal-rights agenda in the White House. Sunstein supports outlawing sport hunting, giving animals the legal right to file lawsuits, and using government regulations to phase out meat consumption.   http://www.prweb.com/releases/Cass-Sunstein/Animal-Rights/prweb1868134.htm

No steak dinner, no unrestricted Internet?  Pop up ads for a competing point of view? Rewrite the First Amendment?  Where’s Ted Nugent when you need him?

Further challenging first amendment rights is the DISCLOSE Act under the guise of election reform.  http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h5175/show The DISCLOSE Act is a desperate attempt to influence the November elections, and minimize Democrat losses writes http://biggovernment.com/dbossie/2010/07/12/will-senate-democrats-stifle-free-speech/

Discussions, bills and laws like The Fairness Doctrine and Net Neutrality aren’t going away anytime soon.

There is some hope for keeping the First Amendment in tact and further limiting big brother with the Enumerated Powers Act that requires that each bill cite its authority under the Constitution. http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-s1319/show The sad thing about this bill is that it takes a bill or legislation to remind our elected officials to do something they should have been doing all along- you know, a little something called upholding the Constitution to which they were elected to and swore an oath to support and defend.

Oh that’s right, the President is after all a Constitutional Lawyer, I think.  I’ve never seen his diploma or birth certificate for that matter but numerous times he has made reference that the Constitution does not address social inequities. 

DC Downsizer Michael Mitchell of Alaska compiled this list from Article I of the U.S. Constitution. These are all the powers that the Congress has-

  1. Borrow money
  2. Regulate commerce among the states
  3. Regulate naturalization
  4. Regulate bankruptcies
  5. Coin money
  6. Fix weights and standards
  7. Punish counterfeiters
  8. Establish post offices
  9. Establish post roads
  10. Record patents
  11. Protect copyrights
  12. Create federal courts
  13. Punish pirates
  14. Declare war
  15. Raise an army
  16. Provide a navy
  17. Call up the militia
  18. Organize the militia
  19. Makes laws for Washington, DC
  20. Make rules for the Army and Navy

Mitchell continues, “According to the 10th Amendment, all else is controlled by the states or the people.” https://secure.downsizedc.org/etp/campaigns/87/background

Gee, I don’t see government mandate for health care in there.

In case you’ve forgotten what else The Constitution says, here’s a great link at http://www.upinjustice.com/knowyourrights.htm

Based on Constitutionality or a coming to their senses, Democratic governors are already complaining about the Obama administration’s first lawsuit against Arizona’s immigration enforcement law, Attorney General Eric Holder is already planning a second.  When setting one little pinkie toe on U.S. soil, one of the first things you have is the right to remain silent, thanks to the Constitution.

Perhaps President Obama should revisit his use of free speech by talking about things like the BP Oil Spill which he hasn’t bothered to mention publicly since June 22. http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/remarks-president-after-cabinet-meeting  Among today’s duties he will honor the WNBA champion team.  http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/president-obama-honor-wnba-champion-phoenix-mercury-white-house.  By the way we are about to begin war games off the Korean Peninsula.  Comment please?

When it comes to governments restricting the Internet I am reminded of George Carlin’s, “Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television”.  Today, I take the opportunity to write:  Shit, Piss, Fuck, Cunt, Cocksucker, Motherfucker, and Tits, just because I still can. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_dirty_words

How’s that for freedom of speech and freedom of religion too? Now I have to go to confession to saying and writing those dirty words.

Updated July 15- The federal appeals court ruled that the FCC agency’s ban on “fleeting expletives” unconstitutional. Great reading at http://reason.com/archives/2010/07/15/the-obsolescence-of-federal-ce/

Decontamination Stations for Beach Goers

The Environmental Protection Agency plans to put decontamination stations along the Florida’s Pensacola beaches as a result of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill according to the PNJ. http://www.pnj.com/article/20100626/NEWS01/6260322/1001/RSS   These stations are apparently for decontaminating people on the beach, rather than wildlife.  So far, 400 people have sought medical care for upper or lower respiratory problems, headaches, nausea, and eye irritation after trips to Escambia County beaches.

Instead of utilizing FEMA, The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has been designated the lead state agency for responding to potential impacts of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill along Florida’s shoreline.  http://www.dep.state.fl.us/deepwaterhorizon/default.htm  The DEP claim is that,  “For most people, occasional brief contact with a small amount of oil, while not recommended, will do no harm. If contact occurs, wash the area with soap and water.” http://www.dep.state.fl.us/deepwaterhorizon/health.htm

To swim or not to swim?  Drowning in opinion- 

Florida’s Escambia County Health Department lifted a health advisory on Pensacola Beach on Friday on the advice of a beach official and against the advice of a federal environmental official. 

And hours after the Pensacola Beach advisory was lifted, the health department asked for state approval to issue an oil-impact advisory that leaves the decision to swim in the Gulf of Mexico up to the discretion of individual beachgoers. The signs would be posted on 41 of the 43 miles of Escambia County beaches — from the Florida-Alabama line to just west of Portofino Beach — impacted by oil.

But, the EPA is ill prepared for any kind of decontamination stations.  A report issued last week claims the EPA is 10 years behind schedule in setting guidelines for a host of toxic air pollutants, according to a report from the agency’s inspector general.  http://www.nytimes.com/2010/06/27/science/earth/27epa.html?_r=1&ref=global-home 

I can envision the signs now. Pursuant to Section Stupid MoFo, Subsection 666, and in an effort to curb our liability- swimming in these water may be hazardous to your health. Should you become slimy with oil, have breathing problems or feel ill, proceed to the nearest decontamination station where you will be met with the unknown.

Portable Decontamination Containers

We can only begin to fathom the possibilities:

Station One. Name, Social Security Number, Residence, Medical history.  Sign here to accept decontamination procedures and release of liability.

Station Two.  Strip down naked.  Your clothes, bathing suits, shoes, will not be returned to you. EPA subcontractors begin take vitals, blood and physical samples of contaminates.

Station Three. Administer decontamination procedures:

Wet Blasting begins. Long handle brushes. Non-phosphate detergent. Administer selected solvents like acetone, hexane, nitric acid, etc. Tap Water, Distilled Water or Deionized water. DOT requirements will apply for solvent rinse waste.

Station Four.  Apply absorbent towel for drying.  Government issues an Orange Jump Suit and either allows you to go home or be quarantined. Maybe they will RFID chip you for follow up.

Station Five.  If patient is labeled as hazardous waste, proceed to FEMA CAMP.

Standard Operating Procedures for Decontaminating Equipment can be found at http://www.epa.gov/earth1r6/6pd/qa/qadevtools/mod5_sops/misc_field_procudures/ertsop2006equip-decon.pdf   Do you think for one minute that the EPA or FEMA is not prepared to do something similar to the above scenario?   Here is a Summary from UNIFIED COMMAND for decontamination procedures for personnel. Double dog dare ya to fill it out. http://www.dec.state.ak.us/spar/perp/permits/pdf/UC_Decontamination.pdf

“The National Emergency Centers Act or HR 645 mandates the establishment of national emergency centers to be located on military installations for the purpose of to providing temporary housing, medical, and humanitarian assistance to individuals and families dislocated due to an emergency or major disaster, according to the bill.”

You do remember FEMA CITY, in Charlotte County Florida post Hurricane Charley, say nothing of the ones that sprang up post Katrina. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/09/16/AR2005091601922.html 

The rumours are swirling that plans are in place to evacuate parts of Florida.  Rex 84, Operation Cable Splicer and Garden Plot ringing any one’s bell?

FEMA has plans to evacuate the Tampa Bay area in the event of a controlled burn of surface oil in the Gulf of Mexico, or if wind or other conditions are expected to take toxic fumes through Tampa Bay, according to a report by Maryann Tobin in the Hernando County Political Buzz Examiner.  http://current.com/technology/92510180_florida-gulf-oil-spill-plans-to-evacuate-tampa-bay-area-are-in-place-veterans-today.htm

In the event the EPA can’t handle decontamination’s, OSHA stands ready to assist- having practiced in the event of an anthrax contamination. 

This HASP [sic, Health and Safety Plan] template was prepared by OSHA and funded by EPA. It provides model language that is acceptable to OSHA in meeting the requirements of OSHA’s Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) Standard, 29 CFR 1910.120 or 29 CFR 1926.65, paragraph (b)(4). That paragraph requires a site-specific safety and health plan for clean-up operations conducted under HAZWOPER,…http://www.osha.gov/dep/anthrax/hasp/index.html

The sharks have likely left the area due to the lack of oxygen, making beach swimming safer.  The Corexit, Oil  Methane and Benzine shouldn’t be a bother as Pensicola’s beach officials believe.  Maybe all this is just a practice for a resurgence in the H1N1 Swine Flu Mitigation?  Maybe this is a practice for a nuclear bomb being set off at the drilling site?  Certainly Methane is flamable.

The Shoreline and Gulf of Mexico water analysis will go on for years keeping the land sharks, politicians and BP busy in and out of the courts.  For now, swim at your own risk, decontaminate at your own risk, and have a Happy Fourth of July.

God Bless America.

As the oil spews, the conspiracy and bull$hit is rising to the top.     

BP said its spent $300 million on the Gulf of Mexico oil spill response effort in the past three days, hitting the $100 million-per-day spend rate for the first time and bringing its total bill to $2.65 billion so far. via Reuters http://news.cnet.com/8301-11128_3-20008984-54.html?part=rss&subj=news&tag=2547-1_3-0-20.  BP is about as transparent as the Obama administration.     

The Treasury Department’s pay czar overseeing executive pay at firms that received government bailouts, including three-Michigan based automakers and finance companies, will step down this summer, the department said Wednesday.  Kenneth Feinberg, the special master overseeing executive pay for the top 100 paid executives at General Motors Co., Chrysler Group LLC, Ally Financial Inc. and AIG, was named to oversee the $20 billion BP fund to compensate victims of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. He will focus on that job full-time after he leaves his current role.  From The Detroit News: http://www.detnews.com/article/20100623/AUTO01/6230443/1361/Official-overseeing-GM–Chrysler-executive-pay-to-step-down#ixzz0sA7eKuTU     

Special master and Czar Feinberg, approved $9 million in compensation for GM chairman and CEO Edward Whitacre, Jr. , including $1.7 million in cash.  I highly doubt we’ll be seeing such sizable checks coming from BP.      

He gave an interview with Neil Cavuto saying:     

FEINBERG: I’m working independently. Both the Obama administration and BP decided together that I should create an independent claims facility. The entire cost of the facility — the entire costs associated with me, my staff, are funded entirely by BP. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,595089,00.html     

I wonder what BP is paying him?    Just how is it independent when he is still getting a check on our tax dollars and one from BP, I presume?

 The blog the Twelfth Bough  http://twelfthbough.blogspot.com/2010/06/justifying-corexit.html reviews a lot of evidence that points toward a giant conspiracy,,,     

…the theory that this spill is a manufactured event designed to pollute the environment with Corexit, in order to cause a population die-off of “undesirables” around the Gulf, on the coasts of Texas, Louisiana and Florida.     

…Instead of thinking of it as Illuminati, think Sabbatean. The elements that ties things together include 1) secrecy and lying about identities, 2) an occult, mystical philosophy guided by the Talmud, the Cabala, and the Zohar, 3) the desire for revenge, control and power, and 4) the use of sacrifices, holocausts and scapegoats     

…Gulf blowout as a staged act just like the moon landings from 1969 to 1972…is that the blowout must involve asphalt, not crude oil, because asphalt, in the form of tar balls, is washing up on beaches. But spilled crude quickly evaporates and leaves behind its heavy fraction, and voilà, you have asphalt. This always happens when crude oil is spilled in the sea.     

 

Federal land grab by A. HUNTER for The Washington Times.

What is not a conspiracy is that the United States has enough oil on it’s own soil that BP and other drilling companies do not need to be drilling in the oceans in the first place.      

“USGS provides science for a changing world.”  How that for a slogan?  They also provided data in 2008 on just how much oil is in them there hills in this report from 2008. http://www.usgs.gov/newsroom/article.asp?ID=1911     

Reston, VA – North Dakota and Montana have an estimated 3.0 to 4.3 billion barrels of undiscovered, technically recoverable oil in an area known as the Bakken Formation.   A U.S. Geological Survey assessment, released April 10, shows a 25-fold increase in the amount of oil that can be recovered compared to the agency’s 1995 estimate of 151 million barrels of oil.     

Technically recoverable oil resources are those producible using currently available technology and industry practices. USGS is the only provider of publicly available estimates of undiscovered technically recoverable oil and gas resources.     

New geologic models applied to the Bakken Formation, advances in drilling and production technologies, and recent oil discoveries have resulted in these substantially larger technically recoverable oil volumes. About 105 million barrels of oil were produced from the Bakken Formation by the end of 2007.     

The USGS Bakken study was undertaken as part of a nationwide project assessing domestic petroleum basins using standardized methodology and protocol as required by the Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 2000.     

The Bakken Formation estimate is larger than all other current USGS oil assessments of the lower 48 states and is the largest “continuous” oil accumulation ever assessed by the USGS. A “continuous” oil accumulation means that the oil resource is dispersed throughout a geologic formation rather than existing as discrete, localized occurrences. The next largest “continuous” oil accumulation in the U.S. is in the Austin Chalk of Texas and Louisiana, with an undiscovered estimate of 1.0 billions of barrels of technically recoverable oil.     

“It is clear that the Bakken formation contains a significant amount of oil – the question is how much of that oil is recoverable using today’s technology?” said Senator Byron Dorgan, of North Dakota. “To get an answer to this important question, I requested that the U.S. Geological Survey complete this study, which will provide an up-to-date estimate on the amount of technically recoverable oil resources in the Bakken Shale formation.”     

The USGS estimate of 3.0 to 4.3 billion barrels of technically recoverable oil has a mean value of 3.65 billion barrels. Scientists conducted detailed studies in stratigraphy and structural geology and the modeling of petroleum geochemistry. They also combined their findings with historical exploration and production analyses to determine the undiscovered, technically recoverable oil estimates.     

USGS worked with the North Dakota Geological Survey, a number of petroleum industry companies and independents, universities and other experts to develop a geological understanding of the Bakken Formation. These groups provided critical information and feedback on geological and engineering concepts important to building the geologic and production models used in the assessment.     

Five continuous assessment units (AU) were identified and assessed in the Bakken Formation of North Dakota and Montana – the Elm Coulee-Billings Nose AU, the Central Basin-Poplar Dome AU, the Nesson-Little Knife Structural AU, the Eastern Expulsion Threshold AU, and the Northwest Expulsion Threshold AU.     

At the time of the assessment, a limited number of wells have produced oil from three of the assessments units in Central Basin-Poplar Dome, Eastern Expulsion Threshold, and Northwest Expulsion Threshold.

The Elm Coulee oil field in Montana, discovered in 2000, has produced about 65 million barrels of the 105 million barrels of oil recovered from the Bakken Formation. Results of the assessment can be found at http://energy.usgs.gov.     

From a recent email on the issue:     

The Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates it at 503 billion barrels. Even if just 10% of the oil is recoverable… at $107 a barrel, we’re looking at a resource base worth more than $5.3 trillion.  “When I first briefed legislators on this, you could practically see their jaws hit the floor. They had no idea.” says Terry Johnson, the Montana Legislature’s financial analyst.     

“This sizable find is now the highest-producing onshore oil field found in the past 56 years,” reports The Pittsburgh Post Gazette.  It’s a formation known as the  Williston   Basin , but is more commonly referred to as the ‘Bakken.’  It stretches from Northern Montana, through  North Dakota and into  Canada ..  For years,  U. S.  oil exploration has been considered a dead end.  Even the ‘Big Oil’ companies gave up searching for major oil wells decades ago. However, a recent technological breakthrough has opened up the Bakken’s massive reserves….. and we now have access of up to 500 billion barrels.  And because this is light, sweet oil, those billions of barrels will cost Americans just $16 PER BARREL!
 
That’s enough crude to fully fuel the American economy for 2041 years straight.  And if THAT didn’t throw you on the floor, then this next one should – because it’s from 2006!
 
U. S. Oil Discovery- Largest Reserve in the World
 
Stansberry Report Online – 4/20/2006 
Hidden 1,000 feet beneath the surface of the Rocky Mountains lies the largest untapped oil reserve in the world. It is more than 2 TRILLION barrels.  On August 8, 2005 President Bush mandated its extraction. In three and a half years of high oil prices none has been extracted. With this mother load of oil why are we still fighting over off-shore drilling?
 
They reported this stunning news:  We have more oil inside our borders, than all the other proven reserves on earth.. Here are the estimates:
– 8-times as much oil as    Saudi Arabia     

– 18-times as much oil as     Iraq     

– 21-times as much oil as     Kuwait     

– 22-times as much oil as      Iran     

– 500-times as much oil as   Yemen     

 – and it’s all right here in the  Western United States.     

HOW can this BE? HOW can we NOT BE extracting this? Because the environmentalists and others have blocked all efforts to help  America  become independent of foreign oil! Again, we are letting a small group of people dictate our lives and our economy…..WHY?

James Bartis, lead researcher with the study says we’ve got more oil in this very compact area than the entire Middle East -more than 2 TRILLION barrels untapped.  That’s more than all the proven oil reserves of crude oil in the world today, reports The Denver Post..
Don’t think ‘OPEC’ will drop its price – even with this find?  Think again!  It’s all about the competitive marketplace, – it has to. Think OPEC just might be funding the environmentalists? (end of email)
 
The government currently owns 650 million acres, or 29 percent of the nation’s total land. With a swoop of his pen, President Obama added another 10 million or so acres on March 30, 2009, in his land grab act, nicely reported here- http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2010/mar/2/white-house-land-grab/ Officially, called the Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009, it is just the beginning. Under the guise of a bunny hugger plot and conservation objectives, the government is taking land and the rabbits with it.  “What magicians you have elected,” we wrote in this post at http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/03/30/the-land-grab-omnibus-bill/ 
 

A New National Landscape Agenda?

As if things aren’t bad enough Tropical Storm Alex is about to change the landscape in a major way. “Some strengthening is forecast during the next couple of days and Alex is expected to become a hurricane on Tuesday,” the U.S. National Hurricane Center said on its latest update.  Luckily it is expected to veer towards  Brownsville, Texas, mostly sparing BP’s efforts south of Louisiana.Texas.  The only thing that has stayed on course that I know of, is the continued blame by President Obama on President Bush.

GULF OF MEXICO OIL SPILL AND AFFECTED COASTLINE CLOSED

The media blackout continues.  The airspace over the coastal waters around the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill have been closed by the FAA. 

Pursuant to 14 CFR section 91.137(a)(1) temporary flight restrictions are in effect for deepwater horizon/mississippi canyon (mc252) incident cleanup and reconstitution operations…All aircraft operations are prohibited except those flights authorized by ATC, routine flights supporting offshore oil operations; federal, state, local and military flight operations supporting oil spill recovery and reconstitution efforts; and air medical and law enforcement operations. http://tfr.faa.gov/save_pages/detail_0_5100.html 

The closing of airspace does occur from time to time for everything from a military air show, to the arrival of a VIP.  Other recent airspace closures can be found at http://tfr.faa.gov/tfr2/list.html.  Most recently, much of Europe airspace was closed and blamed on the often invisible ash cloud from the Iceland Volcano.  We saw airspace closed in the entire U.S. immediately after the events of 9-11.

So why close the airspace over an oil spill? 

We know the oil spill is huge, and we know that BP and the AirForce is spraying COREXIT, the dispersant.  The release says, “For additional information on air operations within the deepwater horizon TFR see website: https://1afnorth.Region1.Ang.Af.Mil/deepwater_spill/default.Aspx This link is a military site that offers no public access.  So much for taking a little plane ride over the area.

http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/05/24/bp-tells-epa-to-shove-it-oil-spill-cleanup/ we noted that the EPA had asked BP to find an alternative to COREXIT after nearly a month of aerial spraying.

April 30, 2010. WASHINGTON (AP) — Two Air Force planes have been sent to Mississippi and were awaiting orders to start dumping chemicals on the oil spill threatening the coast, as the government worked Friday to determine how large a role the military should play in the cleanup.

The C-130 Hercules cargo planes, specially designed for aerial spraying, were sent Thursday from the Youngstown Air Reserve Station in Ohio, said a spokesman there, Master Sgt. Bob Barko Jr. http://www.chem.info/News/2010/04/Environmental-Controls-Air-Force-Ready-to-Spray-Oil-Spill/

While we no longer have Posse Comitatus anymore with active U.S. Military Troops on U.S. soil, we now have BP hiring private security contractors to protect the oil spill, cleanup efforts and keep onlookers away.

In this video, the security firms name was revealed as Talon Security..  http://www.talonprivatesecurity.com/ They appear to be wearing sidearms and flack jackets.
 
 
“This wouldn’t be the first time a private security firm made an appearance in a Gulf disaster,” Wired’s Adam Rawnsley writes. “When Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, the Department of Homeland Security and a number of private firms, fearful of reported widespread violence and chaos, turned to private security contractors like Blackwater and ArmorGroup International to protect their property.” via http://www.wired.com/dangerroom/2010/06/bp-hires-mercs-to-block-oily-beaches/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter
Even Anderson Cooper of CNN,  was warned by FEDERAL WILDLIFE OFFICIALS to avoid doing a bird clean up interview and when pursuing images of the clean up area, was denied access by a NATIONAL GUARD Troops. 
 
 
Now we have the National Guard, The FAA, and private contractors all denying access.  Who and what authorizes BP, and a mercenary security firm like Talon Security to have the right to provide security in the Gulf in the first place?  Should privatized corporate law enforcement be a surprise. 
 
Representative Gene Taylor (D-MS 4th) an 11th term Democrat from Mississippi, in a letter to President Obama asks:
 
05.01.10
Coincidence
The BP oil fire is projected to cause severe damage to four shoreline states. Cause? Was it an accident?  Possible sabotage? Other?…Re: Recent BP fire – result oil spill 2010.
Should the federal government demand and regulate all oil employees who work on the oil rigs?  Should the federal government provide security on and around oil production rigs? It is my opinion that leasing oil production companies do not have the capacity to provide U.S. security. http://www.congress.org/congressorg/bio/userletter/?id=348&letter_id=5130467066
 
On May 5th, 2010, “Taylor flew over the spill in a Coast Guard plane on Saturday and said it was “not as bad” in an interview with a Biloxi TV station. He also said the slick looked like “chocolate milk” and appeared to be “breaking up naturally.”  http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/96217-wicker-defends-rep-taylors-bp-oil-spill-analogy-to-chocolate-milk
Chocolate milk does not require the coast guard, AirForce, private security personnel and closed airspace.  Relying only on BP data is BS.  BP appears to have control over Nat’l Incident Mngt Systems data.

What this means to the non-GIS layperson:

1) The current configuration and process allow BP to limit or slow down the flow of information about the extent of the disaster to the government, the public and law enforcement, which I believe is against the spirit and letter of NIMS*.

2) The current process allows BP to treat GIS datasets as proprietary information. It is my understanding that public agencies, like The US Fish and Wildlife Service and The Louisiana National Guard, are literally submitting the only copy of agency field data directly to a BP GIS server behind the corporate firewall. Examples of these data are; dead bird and fish locations with photos, boom deployment and engineered construction, dates, along with other descriptive information and photos.

3) The GIS information is essential to the recovery of public resources, and some data belongs to US taxpayers, not BP. BP is paying for the hardware and collection of these GIS datasets, yet it is my understanding that the data belong to the people of the United States. BP must not be allowed to protect these data as if they were a proprietary product.

4) State Emergency Operation Center staff, Parish EOC staff, and other Emergency Responders and Recovery Specialists do not have access to these GIS datasets, contrary to all NIMS guidance, protocols and principles. The effort to slow down the flow of information is at the expense of the containment and cleanup effort of the responders and is in our opinion, suspect behavior by BP.

5) The Federal On Scene Coordinator at ICP Houma, US Coast Guard Captain Ed Stanton, standing with USCG Rear Admiral James Watson, approved the National Incident Management System (NIMS) compliant design, and ordered the first database and server. That server was received by BP, and placed behind the BP firewall.

Conclusion–At the very least, per NIMS, there must be redundancy of GIS information managed jointly, and fully accessible to both the FOSC and the SOSC. Technology allows implementation of this design to occur instantaneously and automatically. http://www.theoildrum.com/node/6593

According to the European financial database Amadeus, JPMorgan Chase is the No. 1 holder of stock in BP. That distinction also has earned the Wall Street bank the title of “Global Ultimate Owner” of the oil giant, as it owns 28.34% of BP.  Let us remind you, JPMorgan got $25 BILLION in bailout money. http://www.cnn.com/2008/US/12/22/bailout.accountability/index.html
 
President Barack Obama declared war on the Gulf Oil spill in his first nationally televised address from the Oval Office.  Obama wagged a finger in emphasis and insisted that oil giant BP will pay for the extensive environmental and the economic damage to the Gulf region. Duration: :01:32.
 
 
Who’s really going to pay?  Follow the money all the way back to you and me.

A sinkhole that swallowed a three-storey building in Guatemala City has been blamed on a combination of Tropical Storm Agatha and poor drainage systems. Photograph: Luis Echeverria/AP

Hurricane season officially begins today, and not a moment too soon with a tropical storm brewing in the Gulf of Mexico.

An “active to extremely active” hurricane season is expected for the Atlantic Basin this year according to the seasonal outlook issued by NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center – a division of the National Weather Service. via http://www.noaanews.noaa.gov/stories2010/20100527_hurricaneoutlook.html

Tropical Storm Agatha swept across Central America yesterday, bringing torrential rain that killed more than 100 people and opened a 60m-deep sinkhole in Guatemala City which reportedly swallowed up a three-storey building. The first named storm of the 2010 Pacific season dumped more than a metre of rain in parts of Guatemala, also hitting El Salvador and Honduras. Reports http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/jun/01/storm-agatha-hole-guatemala

That’s some perfectly round sinkhole, wouldn’t you say?  Almost looks as if it was man-made.  Maybe it was just another HAARP or a Blue Beam demonstration? 15 of the World’s largest holes can be viewed at http://www.ebaumsworld.com/pictures/view/175284/

When Tropical Storm Agatha gets into the Gulf it will be renamed Alex, where it will further the spread of oil leaking from the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill. ht to http://monkeyfister.blogspot.com/2010/05/tropical-depression-agatha-crossing.html  A hurricane would be one sure fired way to dispurse the oil.

Predictions for Tropical Storm Alex

On the May 28 edition of Premiere Radio Networks’ The Rush Limbaugh Show, el Rushbo eluded that the oil spill could intensify hurricanes. Media Matters http://mediamatters.org/mmtv/201005280034  has the soundbite, and at least one commentator-Gravity_78  agrees saying that:

Water (H2O) losses about 2F for every 100 ft, Sea Water losses about 1.4 F for every 100 ft. Oil on the other hand heats up under pressure, so the great the pressure the hotter the oil will be. In turn the oil could heat the waters around it by as much as 5 F, and that would be bad. Hot water is what drives a hurricane, the hotter the water the stronger the hurricane.

Even if this storm subsides, there will be another one right behind it to create an oily mess.  Here is the latest image from the GOES satellite. Additional satellite images of the Gulf here http://www.goes.noaa.gov/g8hu.html, all regions viewing at http://www.goes.noaa.gov/

A Perfect Tropical Storm Circle. June 1, 2010, GOES East Hurricane SECTOR IR Image

A perfectly round sinkhole and a perfectly round Tropical Storm?  Perfect crap.  Here is some more bull:

“If this outlook holds true, this season could be one of the more active on record,” said Jane Lubchenco, Ph.D., under secretary of commerce for oceans and atmosphere and NOAA administrator. “The greater likelihood of storms brings an increased risk of a landfall. In short, we urge everyone to be prepared.” FEMA is working across the administration and with our state and local partners to ensure we’re prepared for hurricane season,..You can’t control when a hurricane or other emergency may happen, but you can make sure you’re ready.” said FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate.

Well that’s just phooey.  No one was ready for the damage being caused by the oil spill in the Gulf- not BP, Transocean, Halliburton and especially no one in the government including the woman that either got fired or resigned, was in control.  What was it Obama said?  I’ve been in charge since day one.  If you believe New Orleans can handle another Katrina, I have a nice island for sale for a buck in the Mariana Islands.  If you don’t beleive in weather modification:

“Others [terrorists] are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves… So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations…It’s real, and that’s the reason why we have to intensify our [counterterrorism] efforts.” Secretary of Defense William Cohen at an April 1997 counterterrorism conference sponsored by former Senator Sam Nunn.  http://weatherwars.info/

A few days before the underwater volcano of oil erupted, the underwater volcano Eyjafjallajokull in Iceland erupted on April 15.  Since then we’ve seen numerous volcanic eruptions increase while Eyja just mysteriously ceased erupting, even though scientists predicted it to continue for months.  http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/05/25/icelands-volcano-eruption-endstops/ Here is today’s image of the day from http://www.osei.noaa.gov/, displaying a lovely shade of blue ash from this weekends eruption in Ecuador.   

Tungurahua Volcano, May 28, 2010

This Saturday, there was a supposed an under water volcanic eruption near the Pacific’s Northern Marianas Island , 3,800 miles southwest of Hawaii that shot clouds of ash and vapor nearly eight miles into the sky. That’s 40,000 feet ladies and gents.  The U.S. Geological Survey says Saturday morning’s eruption appeared to come from an underwater volcano off Sarigan, an uninhabited island about 100 miles north of the U.S. commonwealth’s main island of Saipan.  No satellite images for that mystery event.

What was going on at nearby andersen air force base guam, guam navy base, marine corps base guam is any one’s guess.  President Obama is scheduled to visit Guam sometime this June via http://www.digitaljournal.com/article/289451.

The Weather Service statement says that on Saturday night about 10:30pm,  the residents of Sarigan reported an eruption south of their island. [However that conflicts with a report in the Saipan Tribune http://www.saipantribune.com/newsstory.aspx?cat=1&newsID=100077  which says the eruption occurred Friday at noon.]http://www.pacificnewscenter.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=5505:cnmi-disaster-emergency-after-underwater-volcano-erupts&catid=45:guam-news&Itemid=156 Friday, Saturday, oh what’s the difference?

If a tree falls in the woods and there is no one there to hear it, does it make noise?  Who pushed the tree over?  How do you know it fell? We’ve got beam loss from CERN, the Chinese teleporting photons, submarine volcanic eruptions and thousand’s of gallons of oil spewing.  Come rain or shine, your government and FEMA stand ready to help you in the event of disasters like hurricanes, fire, or pandemic flu!

If there really isn’t a New World Order Conspiracy, then the chaos from the earth sure is coincidental.  Rahm Emanuel said, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”
