Update on Gulf of Mexico oil disaster PostTue May 04, 2010 3:24 am  Reply with quote  

Gulf of Mexico has a strong looping current that is going to begin to exert it's influence in the coming days spreading the impact zone to both sides of Florida and parts to the North as far as the Carolinas.
http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2010/05/oceanographer-cannot-think-of-any.html


Over 2,500 personnel are now involved in the response to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The response includes efforts to protect the Gulf coast, to contain the spill offshore at the surface and to stem the flow of oil into the water from the sub-sea well. The onshore activity is focused on locations including: Venice, Louisiana; Pascagoula and Biloxi, Mississippi; Mobile, Alabama; and Pensacola, Florida. BP Group Chief Executive Tony Hayward said: "BP is fully committed to taking all possible steps to contain the spread of the oil spill."

The GOOD NEWS is that... PostTue May 04, 2010 4:15 am  Reply with quote  

The oil slick has been reduced in size substantially by rough seas in the last few days.

http://abcnews.go.com/m/screen?id=10542582&pid=4380645
Satellite photos suggested the slick had shrunk from 2,000 square miles from 3,400 square miles last Thursday, Hans Graber of the University of Miami Center for Southeastern Tropical Advanced Remote Sensing told the Associated Press.

Graber said the smaller slick was the result of oil going underwater, the result of rough seas and wind and that large chunks had broken away from the larger slick. It still remains unclear when the oil is expected to make landfall.

Personally I think that is wishful thinking to say the least but it sure got Goldman out of the news real quick! Wink wink!

Frozen methane ice crystals prevent vessel from sealing leak PostSun May 09, 2010 1:03 am  Reply with quote  

attempts to seal the leaking pipe failed today due to a build up of frozen methane ice sludge that clogged and floated the steel and concrete vessel It began forming a bubble effect on the platform that prevented it from being able to make a successful docking to the leaking pipeline. This is the first time anything of this nature has been attempted at near 1 mile in depth.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of you located in the areas effected.

Tube insertion was successful today but the real problem is PostMon May 17, 2010 1:09 am  Reply with quote  

lurking below the surface.

http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/2010/0516/Gulf-oil-spill-real-disaster-might-be-lurking-beneath-the-surface

The oil that can be seen from the surface is apparently just a fraction of the oil that has spilled into the Gulf of Mexico since April 20, according to an assessment the National Institute for Undersea Science and Technology. Significant amounts of oil are spreading at various levels throughout the water column, says the report, which was posted online a week ago but first published by The New York Times Saturday.

Moreover, it suggests that serious environmental degradation could take place in the open ocean, creating massive “dead zones” where no creature can live because of the lack of oxygen in the water. The spread of oil at all levels of the Gulf also could become a concern for shore communities in hurricanes, which stir up the water column as they come ashore.

Scientists looking at video of the leak, suggest that as many as 3.4 million gallons of oil could be leaking into the Gulf every day – 16 times more than the current 210,000-gallon-a-day estimate, according to the Times.

under water plume may have reached gulf loop stream PostMon May 17, 2010 1:35 am  Reply with quote  

ROBERT, Louisiana (AP) — In a significant step toward containing a massive Gulf of Mexico oil leak, BP said a mile-long (1.6 kilometer-long) tube was funneling crude Sunday from a blown well to a tanker ship after three days of wrestling to get the stopgap measure into place on the seafloor.
Yet even as the company reported the success after weeks of fruitless efforts, scientists warned oil that has already spewed into the Gulf could have dire consequences for the environment. Computer models show the black ooze may have already entered a major current flowing toward the Florida Keys, a researcher told the Associated Press on Sunday.

http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2010-05-16-gulf-oil-spill_N.htm

One computer model shows that the oil has already entered the current, while a second model shows the oil is 3 miles from it still dangerously close, Hogarth said. The models are based on weather, ocean current and spill data from the U.S. Navy and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, among other sources.

The current flows in a looping pattern in the Gulf, through the area where the blown-out well is, east to the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary and beyond.

Other scientists warned that miles-long underwater plumes of oil discovered in recent days could poison and suffocate sea life across the food chain, with damage that could endure for a decade or more.

Researchers have found more underwater plumes of oil than they can count from the blown-out well, said Samantha Joye, a professor of marine sciences at the University of Georgia. She said careful measurements taken of one plume showed it stretching for 10 miles, with a 3-mile width.

The hazardous effects of the plume are twofold. Joye said the oil itself can prove toxic to fish swimming in the sea, while vast amount of oxygen are also being sucked from the water by microbes that eat oil. Dispersants used to fight the oil are also food for the microbes, speeding up the oxygen depletion.

"So, first you have oily water that may be toxic to certain organisms and also the oxygen issue, so there are two problems here," said Joye, who's working with a group of scientists who discovered the underwater plumes in a recent boat expedition to the Gulf. "This can interrupt the food chain at the lowest level, and will trickle up and certainly impact organisms higher. Whales, dolphins and tuna all depend on lower depths to survive."

Here is a MODIS true color image of the area affected...
If what is visible in this image is the spill it is far greater a problem than is being reported.

Latest update regarding Gulf oil spill below surface plumes PostSun May 30, 2010 4:13 am  Reply with quote

Third Giant Underwater Oil Plume Discovered




The New York Times reported on May 15th:


Scientists are finding enormous oil plumes in the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico, including one as large as 10 miles long, 3 miles wide and 300 feet thick in spots. The discovery is fresh evidence that the leak from the broken undersea well could be substantially worse than estimates that the government and BP have given.


“There’s a shocking amount of oil in the deep water, relative to what you see in the surface water,” said Samantha Joye, a researcher at the University of Georgia who is involved in one of the first scientific missions to gather details about what is happening in the gulf. “There’s a tremendous amount of oil in multiple layers, three or four or five layers deep in the water column.”

The plumes are depleting the oxygen dissolved in the gulf, worrying scientists, who fear that the oxygen level could eventually fall so low as to kill off much of the sea life near the plumes.

AP reported on May 27th that scientists had found a second giant plume deep under the water. The plume is 22 miles long and 6 miles wide.

Today, the Washington Post is reporting that a third giant underwater plume has been discovered:

A Louisiana scientist said his crew had located another vast plume of oily globs, miles in the opposite direction.
James H. Cowan Jr., a professor at Louisiana State University, said his crew on Wednesday found a plume of oil in a section of the gulf 75 miles west of the source of the leak.

Cowan said that his crew sent a remotely controlled submarine into the water, and found it full of oily globules, from the size of a thumbnail to the size of a golf ball.... Cowan said the oil at this site was so thick that it covered the lights on the submarine.

"It almost looks like big wet snowflakes, but they're brown and black and oily," Cowan said. The submarine returned to the surface entirely black, he said.

Cowan said that the submarine traveled about 400 feet down, close to the sea floor, and found oil all the way down. Trying to find the edges of the plume, he said the submarine traveled miles from side to side.

"We really never found either end of it," he said. He said he did not know how wide the plume actually was, or how far it stretched away to the west.


As I have previously pointed out, the use of dispersants by BP may be making matters worse. The Washington post article notes:


Cowan's finding underscores concerns about oil moving under the surface, perhaps because of dispersant chemicals that have broken it up into smaller globules. BP officials have played down the possibility of undersea oil plumes.

This discovery seems to confirm the fears of some scientists that -- because of the depth of the leak and the heavy use of chemical "dispersants" -- this spill was behaving differently than others. Instead of floating on top of the water, it may be moving beneath it.

That would be troubling because it could mean the oil would slip past coastal defenses such as "containment booms" designed to stop it on the surface. Already, scientists and officials in Louisiana have reported finding thick oil washing ashore despite the presence of floating booms.

It would also be a problem for hidden ecosystems deep under the gulf. There, scientists say, the oil could be absorbed by tiny animals and enter a food chain that builds to large, beloved sport-fish like red snapper. It might also glom on to deep-water coral formations, and cover the small animals that make up each piece of coral.


"You're almost like a deer in the headlights when you're watching this. You don't know what to say," Cowan said. He said the oil's threat to undersea ecosystems "is really starting to scare us."

Eastern coast threatened by significant pollution damage PostSun May 30, 2010 4:56 am  Reply with quote  

http://www.presstv.ir/detail.aspx?id=128113&sectionid=3510203

The British Petroleum oil spill is threatening the entire eastern half of the North American continent with "total destruction," reports say.

An ominous report by Russia's Ministry of Natural Resources warned of the impending disaster resulting from the British Petroleum (BP) oil and gas leak in the Gulf of Mexico, calling it the worst environmental catastrophe in all of human history, the European Union Times reported.

Russian scientists believe BP is pumping millions of gallons of Corexit 9500, a chemical dispersal agent, under the Gulf of Mexico waters to hide the full extent of the leak, now estimated to be over 2.9 million gallons a day.

Experts say Corexit 9500 is a solvent four times more toxic than oil.

The agent, scientists believe, has a 2.61ppm toxicity level, and when mixed with the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, its molecules will be able to “phase transition.”

This transition involves the change of the liquid into a gaseous state, which can be absorbed by clouds. The gas will then be released as “toxic rain” leading to “unimaginable environmental catastrophe” destroying all life forms from the “bottom of the evolutionary chart to the top,” the report said.


Might be a good time to short Haliburton......

What happens when a Cat 5 hurricane churns thru all those millions of gallons of crude?

What kind of environmental impact will the Gulf experience with the massive amounts of methane that is being released into the ocean? How much of the methane is getting into the air versus dissolved into the sea water?

Very high levels of benzene being detected at coastlines PostThu Jun 17, 2010 4:44 am  Reply with quote  

around the Gulf. One interesting weather pattern has developed lately regarding a persistent HP over Georgia. This HP is a small blessing to those living in Florida since it has reversed the normal west to east air flow over the Florida peninsula due to the clockwise motion of the winds.

It has been sitting in one spot for many many days helping to flow the massive VOC cloud of methane, benzene and disperants away from the most populated areas.

Area pollution monitors are detecting large spikes in benzene which is colorless and invisible to the naked eye again all being directed by surface wind patterns.

The recent temperature increased all across the Southern States is by no means a coincidence due to the massive release of methane which is 60 times more potent a global warming agent than is CO2.

Now add the effect that a huge oil slick has on the amount of heat the ocean normally absorbs which is around 60 percent. That energy is now being reflected skyward to further heat the elevated methane cloud situated over the oil plume.

It has been reported that black berry plants are dying in Panama City most likely due to toxic rainfall so it is important the people living in Florida avoid exposure to any rain fall that occurs from storms coming out of the west.

There are preliminary reports and rumors about upcoming mandatory evacuations from areas most likely to be in danger of toxic fumes.

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has set a
permissible exposure limit of 1 part of benzene per million parts of air (1 ppm) in the
workplace during an 8-hour workday, 40-hour workweek. The short term exposure limit
for airborne benzene is a mere 5 ppm for 15 minutes. Typically, if one can smell raw
crude oil that has evaporated into the air from a massive oil spill, the OSHA safe limits
for “short term exposure” has been massively exceeded.

Readings from parts of Louisiana are measuring from 1100 to sometimes over 3000 parts per billion.

It is therefore, a very good idea to implement a plan for detoxification of benzene.
Benzene Detox Protocol
To be implemented within 48 hours of known benzene exposure, and continued for a
minimum of 6 consecutive months following cessation of exposure to contaminants in
order to lessen the risk of cancer and other illness.

1. Mix 8 ounces of concentrated RealLemon juice (or the juice of 12 large fresh
lemons) per 1 gallon of STEAM DISTILLED WATER. Divide your weight by 2 –
and this is the number of ounces of pure lemon-water that must be consumed
daily. (Example: weight 200 pounds divided by 2 = 100 ounces of water
consumed.) Reason: Lemon juice is loaded with natural citric acid, (a benzenebinder
and anti-oxidant), phosphate, niacin, and of course, vitamin C. This is the
most important, and key step in detoxifying benzene from the body.

2. 12 Chlorella tablets, 3 times daily with meals. Chlorella will powerfully help the
cells remove the benzene residue, and allow the cells to utilize oxygen more
effectively.

3. 2 Vitamin B oral strips daily (AM and PM).

4. 8 ounces of AquaVivos-treated distilled water daily (this is in addition to the
lemon-water). The polyphenolics in AquaVivos helps to protect the cells from
benzene-induced DNA mutation.

5. 4 Droppers each of M.E.M. liquid minerals, Boron, Zinc, Silver, and Manganese –
taken sublingually and separately.

6. 1 tsp. of Liposomal Vitamin C daily (preferably in the a.m.)
For children under 12 years of age, reduce these amounts by ½ (except the lemon
water ratios,)

Quotes from officials regarding the Gulf oil spill PostFri Jun 18, 2010 3:19 am  Reply with quote  

First of all I want to start with this quote regarding air quality and the direction of prevailing winds in the region. Having the ability to control wind direction at surface levels is critical to minimizing health hazards due to toxic airborne pollutions.

#25) Wilma Subra, a chemist who has served as a consultant to the Environmental Protection Agency:

"Every time the wind blows from the south-east to the shore, people are being made sick."

So long as we have clockwise movement of air currents in the Gulf we will see lower levels of benzene and other petroleum airborne pollutants impacting coastal areas.

Here is a report from Florida regarding flu symptoms being experienced by many people after a Gulf storm came inland. (toxic rainfall)

A reader named Stacy has posted a very alarming comment regarding what is happening in her area down in Florida that we wanted to share with everyone....

We live in the navarre, florida area and in the past week almost every family we know has had vomiting and diarreha. This could just be anecdotal – maybe we just have a stomach bug circulating, but it is strange. We had a huge storm the week before it happened that blew in from the gulf so who knows.

Gulf Oil Spill: BP's Looming Health Problem PostFri Jun 18, 2010 3:25 am  Reply with quote  

BP’s oil spill is quickly turning into a regional health issue. Out-of-work fishermen hired by BP to help with the Gulf of Mexico oil spill cleanup are now reporting headaches, dizziness, nausea and difficulty breathing after working for long hours near oil and dispersant-contaminated water, the Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday.

Unfortunately, the feds have been slow on the uptake. Rep. Charlie Melancon, D-La., worried about the reports has asked Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius for the agency to help provide medical treatment. Melancon wants the federal government to open mobile clinics in rural areas to treat the fishermen, the LA Times reported. He expects BP to pay for the clinics, although the company hasn’t responded yet.

Or, here’s another option. How about taking the preemptive step of overseeing BP’s employment of a vulnerable group of people left unemployed by the spill?

It’s not as if the feds were blindsided by this development. BP proved early on that it should be watched. Several weeks ago, BP admitted that it asked fishermen to sign contracts that contained a waiver clause designed to distance the oil company from liability. BP CEO Tony Hayward called it an early misstep and said it was unintentional. BP later agreed to drop the provisions in the contract. Regardless, the waivers should have tripped the alarm bells and sent giant red flags waving in the air.

BP has trained workers in the cleanup effort and says it provides protective gear for workers directly handling oil. Media accounts and photos confirm BP’s assertions. But there are clearly other workers who aren’t working with protective gear. The worker interviewed in the LA Times article was not provided with protective equipment, and was told not to pick up oil-related waste. Still, he became ill as he laid containment booms near a dark substance floating nearby.

There have been assurances from the feds that workers safety will be watched closely. But reports of sick workers continue to trickle in, leaving a clear gap between the intended oversight and prevention. There’s at least one effort to educate fishermen, although it’s not being directed by the feds. Alaskan fishermen, who were involved in the cleanup after the Exxon Valdez spill, are expected to arrive in the Gulf this week.

The BP-controlled cleanup has left some federal agencies rather impotent. BP has reportedly taken hundreds of samples of so-called volatile organic carbons, like benzene, and said all levels were within federal safety standards, the LA Time article said. And yet, BP won’t release the data. The oil company has shared it with OSHA, the agency in charge of worker health and safety. When McClatchy News Service requested the information, OSHA said the information was BP’s and “not ours to publish.” OSHA has reportedly encouraged BP to release the information.

WHEN is the US GOVERNMENT going to take over this situation??????

The disaster has been a major national security risk for this country, our people and their livelihoods and potentially the entire planet in more ways than one. It is bigger than any one corporation's ablility to contain as we have now seen over the last 2 months. It is now time for us to take the lead.

Here is a live loop feed for the Gulf of Mexico PostMon Jun 21, 2010 1:38 am  Reply with quote  

We want to pay close attention to rain and cloud flows in the region. So long as the weather continues to flow from land out to the sea we will minimize coastal areas from being exposed to toxic airborne VOCs. Now where the upper winds are taking all this now that is what you might say is the ......rest of the story.







Yesterday while conducting aerial observations I witnessed a particular cloud formation that drifted into the right position, in relation to the sun, and witnessed the most vividly colored cirrus type high cloud. This formation was not flowing from north to south but actually from the south to the north (like from the Gulf region).

It might be a coincidence but less than 1 hour later 3 planes layed a triangular shaped grid at the same altitude and within 20 minutes that entire section of that part of the sky turned totally blue.

Crop damage anomolies are beginning to surface on the west coast as reported on this forum. So far nothing is showing up on the ground yet but the vivid rainbow cloud thing? Well that is a sign of what might be to come.

(Upper winds are carrying the vaporized pollutants)
