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

 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.  https://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 https://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?

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.

https://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.

What is more toxic, the oil spill or President Obama politics?  

The real goal of “health care” legislation, the real goal of “cap-and-trade,” and the real goal of the “stimulus” is to rip the guts out of our private economy and transfer wide swaths of it over to the government to control. Do not be deluded by the propaganda. These initiatives are vehicles for change. They are not goals in and of themselves except in their ability to deliver power. They and will make matters much worse, for that is their design. http://www.americanthinker.com/2009/11/clowardpiven_government.html  

Is the real goal of President Obama’s lack of response to the oil spill more government reliance?  Is it an an excuse to shut down off shore oil drilling? As Rahm Emmanuel said, “A crisis is a terrible thing to waste.”
  

Former FEMA director Michael Brown is not backing off his charge that the Obama administration wants to use the Gulf Coast oil spill as a plot to put an end to offshore drilling.   “They want a crisis like this, so that they can use a crisis like this to shut down offshore and gas drilling,” he said Tuesday night on CNN’s “AC 360°.”    

The San Francisco Chronicle in January 2008. Obama told the Chronicle editorial board that he wanted cap-and-trade legislation to be as strong as possible.    

“So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can. It’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted,” Obama told the board, after discussing the importance of figuring out how to use coal without emitting greenhouse gases. http://www.cnn.com/2010/POLITICS/05/05/brown.obama.oil.spill/index.html    

Having read every 1,168 pages of Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, it becomes more clear that her philosophical revolution of government takeover is pointing to real life.  “I trust that no one will tell me that men such as I write about don’t exists.  That this book has been written—and published—is my proof that they do,” wrote Rand in the “about the author,” section.  

Any Americans genuinely willing to shrug off the President, to abandon the pursuit of their professed values with the aid of this president’s resolve to solve our manifold problems — whether these Americans are conservative or liberal, secular or spiritual— believing Obama appears to have failed so completely to solve the litany of problems enumerated above in the generous twelve months allotted, might want to recall that he said we are all in this together;  that he said he would listen— that he is serious about relying on our ideas to forge the kind of changes— solutions to our problems— that we can believe in.    

So he didn’t pick your idea(s)?  Well then fuck’im. http://www.urantiansojourn.com/2010/01/obama-shrugged/    

 
We’re all in this together all right!.  He didn’t pick your idea(s)?  Listen, we’re getting frigged alright.  We’ve got the Constitutional President you voted for, who so far has operated one of the least transparent governments in recent history.

In the five years before the Deepwater Horizon exploded, federal investigators documented nearly 200 safety and environmental violations in accidents on platforms and rigs in the Gulf of Mexico, describing a stunning array of hazards that resulted in few penalties. http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/business/deepwaterhorizon/7039960.html    

 
The Deepwater Horizon isn’t the only oil leaking into the Gulf of Mexico.  For the last for the last six years another underwater platform has been leaking– 

Site owner Taylor Energy Co. LLC said in a written statement that a production platform about 70 miles southwest of the Deepwater Horizon disaster was collapsed during Hurricane Ivan in 2004 by an underwater mudslide.  

Pictures taken by an aerial photographer over the weekend and posted on the Internet suggested that oil was leaking from the drilling rig Ocean Saratoga, owned by Diamond Offshore Inc., and that a nearby vessel with a hose overboard was applying dispersant. http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5jX-xmAeoWhfq-yms3nI-eGi8-FuAD9G7C9JO3  

 
It is not a new leak, just some dome adjustments to an old leak? A leak that no one was following?  A leak that has Taylor Energy denying reports that its Ocean Saratoga rig was leaking oil the Gulf of Mexico.  Instead, “Taylor is draining a subsea containment dome near the Ocean Saratoga.” http://blogs.barrons.com/stockstowatchtoday/2010/06/09/diamond-offshore-rebounds-no-2nd-gulf-spill/ 

A leaking drain?  Oh please.  A rose by another other name…(Shakespeare)

Atlas Shrugged wrote about the locomotive, copper and steel that the government took control of, eventually running the companies out of business.  In real life, it is the coal and oil industry that Obama may put out of business or become government owned. It already owns banks and automobile companies.

Under President Barack Obama, the EPA has adopted a policy designed to curtail surface mining by sharply reducing mountaintop removal in six states…The Environmental Protection Agency’s plan to revoke a crucial permit for West Virginia’s largest mountaintop removal mine, with pro-industry forces accusing the agency of an illegal power grab and political machinations.

The impact of a cease and desist on off shore drilling and investigations may put BP into bankruptcy.  Who will pay for the clean-up and compensation then?  You and me of course.  Pushing my bullshit button, “Interior Secretary Ken Salazar is reassuring Congress that the Obama administration has pressed what he described as the “pause button, not the stop button,” on all offshore oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico and elsewhere.”  http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5jovg2Mk3tRYlNd4p-7zl44-h1fWQD9G7Q2HO1 

Goldman Sachs analysts cut their view on the deepwater drillers to neutral specifically, the firm downgraded Diamond Offshore, Atwood Oceanics Inc., Noble Corp. and Transocean Ltd. No stock value means no one drills for oil and we either import it or go without to meet the nation’s energy needs.

The heartkeepercommonroom blog had this to say: 

And here’s the thing- conspiracy theory or not, it really doesn’t matter. Cloward-Pliven put together a recipe they believed would lead to the collapse of this government to make it possible to replace it with socialism.    

They wanted to end free market capitalism. Effectively, the stranglehold of regulation, the result of cronyism in government, the insidious relationship between lobbyists, politicians, and leftwing groups (which, no coincidence, favor Cloward-Pliven leftwing politics) such as PIRG and Public Citizen has effectively created a government which regulates free markets and small entrepreneurs out of existence.They wanted to increase the public’s dependency on the government sector. Can anybody argue with a straight face and uncrossed fingers that this has not happened?    

It doesn’t really matter so much whether this is being done deliberately by people who know what they are doing, by duped useful idiots whose strings are being pulled behind the scenes by some malevolent forces of evil, or through mere incompetence. The results are what they are, the same in every case. <a href="http://heartkeepercommonroom.blogspot.com/2010/06/conspiracy-theory-or-incompentence.html&quot;

CAN the results be different if you figure out who is John Galt for yourself?  

The insidious result is that America needs oil and energy, and we have a President who claims to be responsible, while pointing fingers at everyone else.

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.  https://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.

Sarigan Island in the northern Mariana Islands undersea eruption

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! Be prepared and find the FEMA camp near you at https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/05/10/fema-ready-for-flu-pandemic-fire-floods-resistance/

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.”

The Deepwater Horizon Spill in the Gulf Coast has become a cluster cluck.  President Obama, a month after the leak started has decided that we now need a special commission headed by Ken Salazar, while Lisa P. Jackson, EPA Chief is headed back to the region for her third trip. http://dailycaller.com/2010/05/23/epa-chief-to-return-to-gulf-coast-to-monitor-spill/

The oil continues to flow, although BP is allegedly siphoning off some of the oil underground.   BP claims 5,000 gallons per day since April 13 and finally a month later on May 20, it has been decided that the federal government will come up with its own determination of how much oil is gushing in the Gulf.  Perhaps it should take its own water samples too.  

“You know, it’s a shared responsibility, lots of things went wrong. There were multiple redundancies and fail-safe systems that were supposed to be in place that didn’t work,” said Salzar.   http://www.upi.com/Top_News/US/2010/05/20/Salazar-Independent-oil-leak-rate-coming/UPI-41791274391760/  

The EPA gave BP it’s okay to use chemical dispersants in an effort to corral and degrade some of the oil last week.  By Thursday, the EPA issued a directive for BP to stop using the controversial Corexit dispersal chemical within 24 hours.   https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/05/21/dispersants-epa-stops–  

BP’s response was a pungent reminder of who is in charge, and it most certainly is not the EPA or and branch of the government.  BP issued a terse reply, saying it would continue to use the controversial chemical Corexit despite the directive.  BP officials believe that the leading alternative product, Sea Brat could pose a bigger risk over the long term.   

C-130H Aerial Spraying

NotanotherCONspiracy points out that the government has been spraying “stuff” for years and likely could, would, and may have sprayed the Gulf to attempt to break up the oil.  

A U.S. Air Force Reserve C-130 Hercules from the 910th Airlift Wing at Youngstown Air Reserve Station, Ohio, sprays Dibrom, a pesticide approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency …http://www.notanotherconspiracy.com/search/?q=chemtrails  

Democratic strategist James Carville and MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews, two reliable supporters of President Barack Obama, have issued withering critiques of the administration’s handling of the Gulf oil spill.  Carville, the famously outspoken Louisianian who was a chief political aide to Bill and Hillary Clinton, told CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Thursday that the administration’s response to the spill has been “lackadaisical” and that Obama was “naive” to trust BP to manage the massive clean-up effort. Video and full text at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/05/21/obama-faces-new-wave-of-c_n_585620.html  

  

“The government should have stepped in and not just taken BP’s word,” declared Wayne Stone of Marathon, Fla., an avid diver who worries about the spill’s effect on the ecosystem….As simple as it may seem, the law prevents the government from just taking over, Allen said. 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://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/05/22/frustration-mounts-as-oil_n_585913.html  

Oversight by Federal Agencies- how laughable. Really, what’s one more law or promise broken by the government?  

We do not have transparency from BP nor the EPA, nor do we have control over the cleanup.  For heaven’s sake, some environmental group decided that throwing human hair on the slicks would help. BP has declined the offer. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=127041062&ft=1&f=1025 (Human hair does help keep deer away from gardens though.)  

BP chief Tony Hayward told the Associated Foreign Press, “everything we can see at the moment suggests that the overall environmental impact will be very, very modest.” 

Could he be right?  So far, reports are saying 154 sea turtles, 12 dolphins and 23 sea birds have been found dead. via http://www.huffingtonpost.com/edward-f-blizzard/bp-officials-downplay-imp_b_581787.html  

In January and into February, I was there to witness –  

 
By comparison, the death count of sea critters so far seems small.  With nearly 20% of the Gulf closed to fishing, a fish kill would most likely never be documented in the open waters, only what is witnessed on shore.
It doesn’t just take a cold snap or an oil spill to close beaches.  How about a birds nest?   A shorebird called a tern laid a single egg in Cape Hatteras National Seashore.  The result:
 
Three favored off-road beaches and fishing spots – Cape Point in Buxton, South Ocracoke and the Bodie Island Spit at Oregon Inlet – were effectively closed to prepare for expected shorebird breeding. Large buffer zones preclude access by pedestrians and vehicles. http://hamptonroads.com/node/464263
 
One little egg is going to devastate tourism in parts of the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  Maybe the state can ask for a bailout like every other whiny piss-ant governor.  Florida has asked BP for $35 million dollars for tourism advertising.  So help me if BP pays one dime for an ad, I am going to flip my lid.   How dare Florida, who’s beaches so far haven’t been impacted, ask in the first place?

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?
