Oil Spill. Getty Images.

The Deepwater Horizon Oil spill or leak as BP calls it, is a disaster of epic proportion.  The response by the EPA is equally to blame in the approval of two chemical dispersants by BP, and it’s reliance soley on BP to clean it up and provide water samples.

Saturday May 15, 2010-“Based on the scientific analysis of the EPA and NOAA and review by the National Response Team, it has been determined that the use of dispersants at the subsea source is the prudent and responsible action to take along with other tactics including surface dispersant, skimming and controlled burns.” http://www.deepwaterhorizonresponse.com/go/doc/2931/551271/

We warned in this post, https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/05/16/deepwater-horizon-oil-spill-response/ that the use of chemical dispersants, is not without it’s own hazards.  BP asked, and got approval from the EPA to use COREXIT, manufactured by Nalco Company, Illinois. http://www.nalco.com/

COREXIT EC 9500 A http://www.deepwaterhorizonresponse.com/posted/2931/Corexit_EC9500A_MSDS.539287.pdf 

COREXIT 9527  C  http://www.deepwaterhorizonresponse.com/posted/2931/Corexit_EC9527A_MSDS.539295.pdf 

COREXIT products clearly state that they are not to be used on surface water and are toxic to wildlife. And that, “It is unknown if dispersed oil has toxic implications to the human population because bioaccumulation through the food chain has not been evaluated.”  http://www.epa.gov/bpspill/dispersants.html#q3 

It was not prudent and responsible to approve these particular products, and now in a reverse course, EPA is revoking its decision.

The Environmental Protection Agency informed BP officials late Wednesday that the company has 24 hours to choose a less-toxic form of chemical dispersants to break up its oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, according to government sources familiar with the decision, and must apply the new form of dispersants within 72 hours of submitting the list of alternatives.

The move is significant, because it suggests federal officials are now concerned that the unprecedented use of chemical dispersants could pose a significant threat to the Gulf of Mexico’s marine life. BP has been using two forms of dispersants, Corexit 9500A and Corexit 9527A, and so far has applied 600,000 gallons on the surface and 55,000 underwater.http://views.washingtonpost.com/climate-change/post-carbon/2010/05/epa_demands_less_toxic_dispersant.html

A significant threat?  Why approve COREXIT in the first place?  Maybe because 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

J. Erik Fyrwald is the Chairman and CEO of NALCO and among other things, “…serves as a Director of Eli Lilly and Company, the Society of Chemical Industry, the American Chemistry Council and is a Trustee of the Field Museum of Chicago.”  http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix.zhtml?c=182822&p=irol-govBio&ID=176133 More of his relationships via http://www.muckety.com/J-Erik-Fyrwald/8859.muckety shows he is also a Director of The Eexecutives Club of Chicago.- http://www.executivesclub.org/ where they are launching The Global Leadership Institute of Chicago—a legacy that endows the capacity to make change. 

Capacity to make change? Change you can believe in?

Let me think, who else is from Chicago that I can think of?  Blagojevich, Wright, Ayers, President Obama. The biggest oil spill in the world has taken place under Obama’s reign and it took him days to hold a conference with administration officials and eleven days to go see for himself. http://seminal.firedoglake.com/diary/45025

Keeping in good graces in the eye of  the government and the public, Nalco issued this statement on EPA Analysis of Sub-surface Dispersant Use,  http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix.zhtml?c=182822&p=irol-newsArticle_pf&ID=1429558&highlight=NAPERVILLE, Ill.,

May 20, 2010 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) –Nalco (NYSE:NLC) today issued the following statement:We are gratified that the EPA has acknowledged that the use of Nalco’s dispersants has been effective and has had no undue impact on the marine environment.  As the agency noted on its website today: “Toxicity data does not indicate any significant affects on aquatic life. Moreover, decreased size of the oil droplets is a good indication that, so far, the dispersant is effective.”

The results can be found at http://www.epa.gov/bpspill/ .  To date, approximately 600,000 gallons of dispersant has been used on the surface and approximately 55,000 gallons of dispersant has been used subsurface, at the source of the spill. 

Do you smell something fishy?

Nalco claims the products are working just fine with no hazards, yet the EPA is revoking the use of COREXIT?  Yep.  It boils down to the fact that the government is not happy with BP.  In a Letter From Secretary Napolitano and EPA Administrator Jackson to BP CEO Tony Hayward (PDF) they all but accuse BP of adulterating water samples to justify that COREXIT and the sucking up gadget is having a positive effect of the spill. 

WHY ISN’T THE EPA TAKING IT’S OWN WATER SAMPLES? 

Friday, May 21, 2010 11 a.m. CDT. U.S. Coast Guard Incident Commander Capt. Steven Poulin, U.S. Coast Guard Deputy Incident Commander Capt. Bill Drelling, and BP Incident Commander Keith Seilham of  The Deepwater Horizon Response Unified Incident Command, Mobile, Ala., are scheduled to hold a press briefing about ongoing response operations along the Mississippi, Alabama and Florida coasts.  http://www.deepwaterhorizonresponse.com/go/doc/2931/557791/  I got tired of listening to the music and hung up after the delayed start, but why wouldn’t the EPA be involved as well?

The forecast where the oil is heading can be viewed at http://www.deepwaterhorizonresponse.com/posted/2931/os_forecast_20100523_1800CDT_20100520_1900CDT_rs.557859.pdf  Too bad no one is mapping where the dispersants have been administered.  In an effort to have more government oversight before a catastrophe, about a week ago The Department of the Interior released this:

Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar today announced a set of reforms that will provide federal inspectors more tools, more resources, more independence, and greater authority to enforce laws and regulations that apply to oil and gas companies operating on the Outer Continental Shelf. http://www.doi.gov/news/pressreleases/Salazar-Launches-Safety-and-Environmental-Protection-Reforms-to-Toughen-Oversight-of-Offshore-Oil-and-Gas-Operations.cfm //  http://www.mms.gov/

Salazar implies BP and other oil companies want to lose untold amounts of oil and money on purpose.  Gives you that warm fuzzy feeling that more independence will prevent this from happening again.  How about a new set of federal reforms that secure our border?

Mount St. Helen's Eruption May 18, 1980. (Nat. Geo)

Mount Saint Helen’s volcano erupted thirty years ago today-May 18, 1980.  “The devastation erupted so violently that it leveled 150 square miles of trees, sent the mountain’s north face 14 miles down the Toutle River and dropped gray ash around the world.”  http://www.usatoday.com/NEWS/usaedition/2010-05-17-mtsthelens17_ST_U.htm?csp=34 

The destruction began at 8:32 a.m. on May 18, when the north side of the mountain slid away after two months of intense earthquake activity and weaker eruptions. The landslide uncorked pressurized magma and released a blast so powerful that 1,300 feet of the mountain’s peak collapsed or blew outward, 24 square miles of valley was filled by a debris avalanche, 250 square miles of land was damaged by a lateral blast, and 57 people were killed.

Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull began the eruption in the same way, with an increase an increase of earthquake activity.  Eya continues to erupt and cause disruptions, but no one has died and the lava has not spread 150 miles of devastation.  Eya is holding us hostage,  not sending us running for cover-at least not yet.  

It is Iceland’s other major volcano’s that are becoming increasingly the center of debate.  Scientists are predicting  decades of ash disruptions and predictions of eruptions from Katla, which lies only 15 miles to the east of Eyjafjallajokull volcanic eruptions. 

Lo and behold there was a quake beneath both Hekla on May 16 and Katla, May 17. via The Ice Met Office.  Uh, oh.

An eruption at Katla would cause very sudden jökulhlaups (glacier outburst floods).  They occurred during the subglacial eruption in Eyjafjallajökull volcano but have slowed.  Katla’s ice crater is estimated to be 2,000 feet thick and if she blows, that ice is going to melt fast and quickly wiping out everything in it’s path.  It is the fourth largest volcano in Iceland -220 sq. miles (580 sq. km). A large caldera 9 miles (14 km) in diameter underlies the ice.

At least three other big Icelandic volcanoes are building towards an eruption, according to Thor Thordarson, a volcanologist at Edinburgh University.  The three other volcanoes cited by Thordarson as being potentially close to a large eruption are Grimsvotn, Hekla and Askja — all of which are bigger than Eyjafjallajokull. http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/article7127706.ece

Looking ever so peaceful, is the Hekla crater in this 2008 photo by David Adamson. http://picasaweb.google.com/thunder.son Hekla is 75 miles (120 km) east of Reykjavik and last erupted in 2000.

The Institute of Earth Sciences reports, “Hekla is a volcano with special seismic characteristics. During non-eruptive periods it is virtually aseismic, and does not give any obvious long-term or intermediate-term precursory warning before eruptions. The eruption-related seismicity starts only 30-80 minutes before its onset.  http://www.earthice.hi.is/page/ies_heklaseismicity

Mount St. Helen’s and Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcanic eruptions gave obvious seismic warning signs far ahead.  A quiet Hekla poses a huge challenge for predictability, warnings and safety. 

There is perhaps no other natural disaster quite as spectacular or potentially as destructive as that of an erupting volcano. Spewing out ash and magma that can kill a human in seconds, unleashing toxic gases from the belly of the planet, a volcano is truly nature’s fury unleashed. http://scrapetv.com/News/News%20Pages/usa/pages-4/Climber-unexpectedly-dies-after-falling-into-volcano-Scrape-TV-The-World-on-your-side.html

Human curiosity via webcams and tours to view volcano’s are common. Falling to your death in one is not so common. In February 2010, Joseph Bohlig posed for a picture with Mount Rainier in the background when he turned around and took a final step on the cornice and fell to his death. 

Though the connections go down pretty often, I’ll stick to the webcams at: 

 link to sv.tinypic.com]  [link to eldgos.mila.is]  [link to www.ruv.is]  [link to www.vodafone.is] [link to www.mulakot.net] [link to www.sat24.com]  “We have limited TV footage of the volcanic eruption. It’s all the same shots, and the same angles. Surely there must be something new to show? And there was a shot of a car in a dust cloud. Easily staged, and the only “evidence” of dust,” wrote  http://citizengodden.com/2010/04/16/iceland-volcanic-cloud-conspiracy/.

Putting our tinfoil hat back on, we search for any connections between natural physical science and the possibility of man causing volcano’s, earthquakes, tsunami’s and related disasters.  A cover-up of some sort?  An intervention with HAARP, ESCAT, CERN, etc., and quite possibly the impact on Earth’s magnetosphere from the atmosphere all offer some plausibility.  Others would say, God is just ticked off, that some catastrophes are just an, “Act of God.”

One thing for sure, volcano’s and magma’s muscle put humility in man and the power beneath our planet.

Brought to You by bp, A Green Oil Folksy Kinda Oil Company

The Bp Deepwater Horizon Oil spill continues with no end in sight. 

The NOAA branch of the government called OFFICE OF RESPONSE AND RESTORATION, EMERGENCY RESPONSE DIVISION worked on a Saturday, May 15, 2010 to issue a report called DEEPWATER HORIZON OIL: CHARATERISTICS AND CONCERNS,  http://www.deepwaterhorizonresponse.com/posted/2931/OilCharacteristics.551475.pdf

The report tells us that oil in water is hazardous to human and aquatic life and makes some suggestions on how to clean it up.  Gee thanks, our tax dollars at work as if we didn’t know it was a hazard. 

Also on May 15, 2010, The U.S. Coast Guard and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) today announced they have authorized BP to use dispersants underwater, at the source of the Deepwater Horizon leak.  Oil spill dispersants are chemicals that attempt to break down the oil into small drops and prevent it from reaching the surface or the U.S. shoreline.  Dispersants are generally less harmful than the highly toxic oil leaking from the source and they biodegrade in a much shorter time span.

“Based on the scientific analysis of the EPA and NOAA and review by the National Response Team, it has been determined that the use of dispersants at the subsea source is the prudent and responsible action to take along with other tactics including surface dispersant, skimming and controlled burns.” http://www.deepwaterhorizonresponse.com/go/doc/2931/551271/

Prudent and Responsible?  Calling it a novel approach,  the government is relying on BP to use chemical dispersants among other clean up efforts.  The two approved products are COREXIT EC 9500 A http://www.deepwaterhorizonresponse.com/posted/2931/Corexit_EC9500A_MSDS.539287.pdf and COREXIT 9527  C  http://www.deepwaterhorizonresponse.com/posted/2931/Corexit_EC9527A_MSDS.539295.pdf Both are manufactured by Nalco Company, Illinois. http://www.nalco.com/

WARNING!  NOT TO BE USED ON SURFACE WATER. Oh so what, the EPA  has given its approval to use them on the surface and underwater.  The ecotoxicological effects on fish, had them dead within 48 – 96 hours.  If the oil doesn’t kill the Gulf of Mexico’s fish, the chemical dispersants likely will.  If they do live, who wants to eat them?   Dr. Jane Lubchenco the  Undersecretary of Commerce for Oceans and Atmosphere, NOAA, says she’ll eat them, saying, “Yes, and I would enjoy it.”

 It is unknown if dispersed oil has toxic implications to the human population because bioaccumulation through the food chain has not been evaluated.  http://www.epa.gov/bpspill/dispersants.html#q3

Did BP ask, or did the EPA order the use of dispersals?  On May 10 the EPA asked BP to implement a Dispersed Plume Characterization Plan for Subsurface Dispersant Application.  http://www.epa.gov/bpspill/dispersants/subsurface-dispersant-directive-final.pdf  This plan relies soley on BP to do the testing and then sending the results to the EPA.   How much could it cost for the Coast Guard to do some some of it’s own testing to keep BP honest?  What happens if BP doesn’t execute the plan at all? 

Officials monitoring the subsea results reported that the first two tests were inconclusive. Logistical problems in obtaining samples down to 5,000 feet prevented proper sampling. A third test is underway, with some samples already in the labs at Louisiana State University reports Global Research. http://globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=19151

Imagine that.  The results are inconclusive.  I conclude, a dead fish can’t swim upstream.

A New Vent or Crater Forming? May 13, 2010

The Earthquake count at Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano had a total of 103 earthquakes occurring in the area with in a 48 hour period.  From Iceland Met Office.  

Earthquake count:

Magnitude less than 1:  52

Magnitude 1 to 2:  41

Magnitude 2 to 3:  10

Magnitude more than 3:  0

Total: 103

The number total changes with the clock, but 100 plus detectable quakes in a 48 hour period is nothing to sneeze at.   These earthquakes were only the ones around the eruption.  We are now beginning to see  increases in magnitude and frequency across all of Iceland.   There is little doubt that seismic eruptions and deformations in the earth’s crust could cause magma to flow toward fractures around the larger Katla volcano.

RUV reports a series of earthquakes under and around Eyjafjallajokull which could signal changes to the volcanic eruption.  According to geophysicist Steinunn Jakobsdottir, the quakes could be a sign of a new vent about to open. The volcano already has three vents, but only the one on the northernmost edge is still erupting.
 
Ash fall in the area has been decreasing and is currently very fine but large rocks have replaced the ash production, apparently caused by the earthquakes. The rocks are being shot high up into the air and crashing down onto the glacier, making holes in the ice. The size and weight of the rocks means that they are a very localised problem and only fall very near to the volcano.http://www.icenews.is/index.php/2010/05/11/air-travel-normalising-again-as-volcano-changes-behaviour
While ash fall has certainly NOT been decreasing, apparently, the volcano is also bulging slightly, read here…link to content.usatoday.com

Today’s earthquakes locations are all over Iceland,  as opposed to just being centered around Eyjafjallajokull only reporting 3 mild quakes so far.  

Earthquake Swarms Under All of Iceland

Connect the dots and there is a pattern.  Perhaps the level of Magma is rising and spreading.  We’ve all heard about the chance of another volcano eruption and maybe these changes are a significant predictor of things to come.  In the below image you can see the plate boundaries, and that is where most of the quakes are occurring.  

  

Looking above ground and watching the numerous web cams we found a live video stream for May 11, 2010 that has an unknown object flying around http://img269.imageshack.us/img269/9734/volcan0.mp4.  The stream was recorded from this site.  http://mulakot.net/images/myndavelar/14flugv.jpg   It is a condensed 6 hours in 40 seconds, each frame is 15 seconds apart or close and runs a minute or two long.

A UFO, a spotter plane, a Chinese lantern?  What ever it is, it is flying about  in the Tephra fallout. 
 
Looking at more of today’s images, it looks like there may be a new vent or crater as geophysicist Steinunn Jakobsdottir suggested.  It appears the be releasing steam or gas at this time.  None the less, most of the world’s airspace remains open even though it has reached as far as Africa.    The latest updates on the Ash Cloud …
 
  
 
One has to wonder if the recent horrible plane crash has any correlation to the ash?
http://edition.cnn.com/2010/WORLD/africa/05/13/libya.planecrash/  If the finding show ash in the engines, it will be a wake up call for the airline industry and the scientists who predict ash levels.  [link to volcan-islande-live.media.officelive.com] traffic airline, livecam, image hd, diaporama (updates 1h).

Eruption May 10, 2010 at GMT 14:19:39

Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull eruption has no end in sight.  This morning alone, there have been a whopping 50 earthquakes near the volcano, as the ash continues to cause havoc.  http://en.vedur.is/earthquakes-and-volcanism/earthquakes/myrdalsjokull/#view=table

Some of these quakes getting closer to fault line toward Helka and Katla, which if she blows will certainly send folks running for the hills.  The Seismic Station, Godabunga located between Eyja and Katla and is dancing up a storm.

Godabunga (GOD) Tremor Reading May 10, 2010

We know of four Eyjafjallajokull eruptions in the past [dating back to AD 500] and in three out of these four cases, there has been a Katla eruption either at the same time or shortly after.

“By shortly, I mean timescales of months to a year. “We consider that the probability of Katla erupting in the near future has increased since Eyjafjallajokull went.” But we know there are fissures running between the two volcanoes. And they’re quite close to each other.

“They’re also being subjected to the same tectonic forces. So the chances are that if magma can find a pathway to rise beneath one of them, it can find its way to rise beneath the other.”   Researchers do know that the two volcanoes have separate magma chambers, but many suspect that these chambers are physically linked in some way, deep beneath the surface of the Earth. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/8668604.stm

Anyone ready to make a prediction how many quakes we will see in total just for today? At this rate we may reach a hundred!  Last updated a few minutes ago-

May 10, 2010

A new webcam has been added with thermal imaging.  Watch the show at http://www.flir.com/thermography/eurasia/se/data/?id=30533 . Due to server bandwidth limitations, you may need to refresh the page (F5) to see the video stream, the images are worth it.

UPDATED at 12:54 p.m EST,   60 Earthquakes in Eyjafjallajokull region so far today.

NASA Sends Mom's Flowers From Space

Outside the ground is frozen, quite possibly covered in snow and ice, and yet, stroll through a supermarket in North America or Europe in February, and you’ll be confronted with large displays of roses. We expect flowers in winter, and equatorial countries meet those expectations. A quarter of the cut flowers sold in Europe are grown in Kenya. Straddling the equator, Kenya gets steady sunlight dealt out in days that vary little in length. It’s the perfect climate for flowers year-round. The center of Kenya’s flower industry is Lake Naivasha, shown here.

The Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) flying on NASA’s Terra satellite captured this image of Lake Naivasha on February 2, 2008. Bright white squares mix with fields of green, tan, and purple along the shores of the lake. Sunlight glints off the long rows of glass greenhouses, turning them silvery blue and white in this view from space.

Fallow fields are tan and pink, while growing plants turn the ground bright green. Roses, lilies, and carnations are the most common flowers grown in the greenhouses and fields scattered around the lake. The large-scale industry shown here extends into small-scale rural farms elsewhere in Kenya, where smaller filler flowers are grown.

The flowers provide an important source of income to Kenya, but the industry comes with a price. Flowers are not held to the same standards for chemical residues as food products, which are tightly regulated. Strong chemical pesticides can be used on the flowers to produce the perfect, pest-free bloom, and this could pose a health risk to workers and local wildlife, including hippos, environmental groups told the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in 2002. The chemicals may also have threatened the water quality of Lake Naivasha, one of Kenya’s few freshwater lakes. The Kenya Flower Council instituted a code of conduct establishing guidelines for pesticide that phases out the use of one of the most toxic pesticides.

EZ New Flag

Plagued with debt problems, the E.U. has apparently changed its name to the Eurozone.  

“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose, By any other name would smell as sweet.” 

Here Juliet tells Romeo that a name is an artificial and meaningless convention, and that she loves the person who is called “Montague”, not the Montague name and not the Montague family. Romeo, out of his passion for Juliet, rejects his family name and vows, as Juliet asks, to “deny (his) father” and instead be “new baptized” as Juliet’s lover. This one short line encapsulates the central struggle and tragedy of the play.

No matter the name, The European Union, European Commission, E.U. or Eurozone, these countries are not playing for love, but for money and survival in the real world- far from Shakespeare’s time.

The flag looks like another spooky eyeball staring at you from The New World Order. There are 12 stars and 27 member states. Maybe it has to do with a clock having twelve positions, implying in time that there will only be 12 members in the future or that time will tell if the Eurozone survives.

More on the EU or Eurozone here at  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portal:European_Union and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eurozone.

Greenland is the only territory to have left the EU and it would appear, it was a smart move.

For all the implications  for the value of sterling and gilts of talks to form a British government, investors are this weekend probably more concerned about negotiations to stabilize the euro involving the European Central Bank and European government heads – as Jim O’Neill of Goldman Sachs pointed out on the Today Programme.

The big threat, not just to the health of the eurozone economy but to the world’s prosperity, is that Continental banks are finding it harder and more expensive to borrow for longer periods on wholesale markers.

That’s because their creditors are worried about their substantial loans to overstretched eurozone governments, through their respective holdings of assorted eurozone government bonds.  http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/thereporters/robertpeston/2010/05/the_ecb_matters_more_than_cleg.html

In the midst of a financial disaster, we have a new flag.  Whip dee do.

On a rather sketchy legal basis, the leaders have told the European Commission to meet on Sunday and draw up plans for a “mechanism to preserve financial stability in Europe”.  The body that met today has no legal status, though Mr Sarkozy kept talking about “the council of the eurozone”, which I have never heard of before. When the European Commission has finished drafting proposals for this secret weapon on Sunday morning, it will be approved by the finance ministers of the EU’s 27 member countries on Sunday afternoon, and the new mechanism will be in force on Monday morning, in time for market opening, Mr Sarkozy said.  http://www.economist.com/blogs/charlemagne/2010/05/euro_crisis_0

Funny thing is, President Nicolas Sarkozy is not in anyway a leader of this group.  Ahh the limelight. 

The only other name change I can recall for a group of member states is when President Bush and subsequently President Obama, refer to the U.S. as The Homeland. 

The Homeland term is derived from and equivalent to the German Nazi term “der Fatherland”. Der Fatherland was used by Hitler to impassion Germans with patriotism, diverting their attention from laws, legislation and programs authorizing genocide and ethnic cleansing. http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=homeland.

Does the Patriot Act ring any bells in diverting law?

North American Union Logo

When the North American Union Logo shows up on a Flag in America you’ll know we are destined to see the end of U.S. Currency and sovereignty.  It sounds just like what has happened to the countries of the Eurozone.
