Oil Disaster In the Mexican Gulf - A Global Threat with a Political Agenda?

Posted By Anders On July 5, 2010 @ 14:58 In English, Euromed | 4 Comments

Summary: On 20 April 2010, a BP oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico. Since then BP has been half-heartedly trying to limit the damages through the escape of  at least 210. 000 gallons of crude oil a day into the Gulf. For that purpose the dispersant Corexit is being used, although it is far more toxic and inferior as for efficincy than other dispersants. The reason is that the Wall Street bankster Goldman Sachs owns Nalco, which produces corexit. In order to secure the profitable deliverance of the poisonous Corexit, Nalco has oil corporation CEOs on its board - this product thus being a product of the oil companies to be sold to the  oil companies - the bill then being passed on to tax payers, when a negotiated upper limit of 10 bn dollars for damages now estimated at  1 trillion dollars is reached. Corexit rain is now being dreaded, is already falling 400  miles inland, severely damaging crops and farmland and threatening to make a wide zone uninhabitable. The emitted poisonous gases are being smelt in New Orleans. These poisonous gases such as methane my also threaten life in the Gulf area - but oddly, no official measurements have been released. Right now, the authorities are said to prepare to evcuate a 200 miles broad zone from the rig. The Exxon Valdez spill in 1989 was also treated with Corexit. Today all cleanup workers are dead due to related diseases - and today´s cleanup workers are also falling ill. In the meantime, the oil has reached the Gulf Stream and is now on the East Coast of Florida - on its way into the North Atlantic, where it may change our climate in the direction of a new ice age.  Critics are wondering more and more why Pres. Obama and BP are doing much too little to limit the spreading disaster, incl.not drilling relief wells. More and more think they want the disaster to spread in order to soften the Senate up to vote for the CO2-cap-and-trade-bill - so profitable to the banksters behind the climate exhanges who have fat fees from trading harmless CO2 in the name of the manmade global warming lie.  Now authorities have forbidden journalists, to come closer than 65 ft to the coastal line in order not to photograpf  oil-smeared birds. Penalty for transgression: Fines of 40.000 dollars - and loss of Job. This is a suspension of the First Amendment.

[1] BP-hurricane-alexOn 20 April 2010, a BP oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico. 11 workers were killed. This [2] Video showsg the disaster, which is having widespread implications  – locally and in time also globally. Who is BP – British Petrol? [3] Popular wit will know: „British Poison“ or „Buys Presidents“!

[4] Investigative Journalist Wayne Madsen 23 June 2010: Bad news from WMR's federal government sources in the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the US Army Corps of Engineers: Emergency planners are dealing with a prospective "dead zone" within a 200 mile radius from the Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf due to Corexit rain and methane.
Toxic rain from the Gulf is expected to poison fresh water reservoirs and lakes, streams, and rivers, which will also have a disastrous impact on agriculture and livestock, as well as drinking water, in the affected region.

[5] Global Research 29 June 2010: As part of the earth`s interconnected ecosystem, rain water comes from the oceans. So, it shouldn`t be a surprise that scientists are predicting severe destruction across the U.S. from toxic rains - and it appears the first cases are being reported about 400 miles from the Gulf [6] BP-we-want-our-beach-backto destroy crops and farmland.

So, what can you do? Detoxify your body now and continue to do so regularly in the months and years to come. These chemicals in the air - and likely soon in the drinking water and in crops present a very real danger inside our bodies. 

[7] Louisiana Bucket Brigade's Blog 10 June 2010: LABB’s Oil Spill Crisis Map has been tracking odor complaints and health effects related to the BP Oil disaster since May 1st, 2010.  To date the map has received 203 odor reports (i.e., smells like kerosene, burning crayons, burning oil) and 69 health effects reports from Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida.  Thirty-eight people have reported [8] Oil-spill-workersheadaches and 43 reports detailed experiences of lung tightness, nose and throat irritation as a result of exposure. Other exposure related symptoms reported on the map include nosebleeds, dizziness, nausea and vomiting, chest pains, and burning eyes. The highest number of odor reports on the map come from the metro New Orleans area.

Here is a video showing the [9] actual BP oil disaster. 1979 there was [10] a similar oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, whereby 30.000 barrels a day poured into the Gulf of Mexico - treated through 2 relief wells.

[7] Louisiana Bucket Brigade's Blog 10 June 2010: From May 30 to June 5, 2010, 71 reports of health complaints were received. Fifty [11] reports came from among workers and 21 from the general population. According to BP’s industrial hygiene monitoring program, 21 workers have been exposed to benzene, 305 workers have been exposed to hydrocarbons, and 43 workers have been exposed to butoxethanol.

[12] BP-freedom-from oilHorrible Health effects – unless regular “detoxification”!
[5] Global Research 29 June 2010: Crude oil is packed with a toxic chemical called benzene. Even in small amounts, benzene is associated with leukemia, Hodgkin`s Lymphoma and other serious blood and immune system diseases. The EPA`s "safe level" for benzene is 4 ppb (parts per billion) and benzene is being found in Gulf air at levels of 3,000 ppb. Crude oil is being smelled hundreds of miles away, and make no mistake, if you can smell oil, you`re breathing highly toxic benzene.

With the oil, numerous toxic gases are also gushing from earth and gases that everyone near the Gulf is being exposed to include hydrogen sulfide and methylene chloride. The EPA`s allowable limit for hydrogen sulfide is 5-10 ppb (parts per billion), but on May 3rd air levels of 1,192 ppb were recorded. A former oil company CEO says these levels pose serious, even fatal, risks to adults and unborn children. As for methylene chloride, the body changes it to carbon monoxide - and it`s known to cause liver damage, skin damage and cancer. The EPA`s safe level for methylene chloride is 61 ppb - and it`s being found in the air at levels of 3,000 ppb.

[13] Oil-duckMost people know that the chemical dispersant (Corexit) BP is using  is highly toxic. It`s so toxic that the EPA ordered BP to use a different and less toxic dispersant - an order which BP ignored. In the UK it is forbidden. It is said to be [14] 4 times more toxic than the oil – and is eating through fishing boats of the Gulf! Currently, over a million gallons of these toxic chemicals have been dumped into our oceans. With the Exxon Valdez oil spill, the same dispersant caused serious respiratory, liver, nervous system, kidney and blood damage in people - and reports that clean up crews in the Gulf are falling ill are plenty.

The Obama Administration and senior BP officials are frantically working not to stop the world’s worst oil disaster, but to hide the true extent of the actual ecological catastrophe. 

[15] F. William Engdahl 10 June 2010: The leakage could continue for years unless decisive steps are undertaken, something that seems far from the present´s strategy.
What the enormity of the oil spill does is to also further discredit clearly the myth of “peak oil” ([16] Club of Rome) which claims that there is nearly no more oil. That myth has been effectively used by the giant oil majors to justify far higher oil prices  by claiming a non-existent petroleum scarcity crisis.

[17] BP-spillObama and his senior White House staff, as well as Interior Secretary Salazar, are working with BP’s chief executive officer Tony Hayward on legislation that would raise the cap on liability for damage claims from those affected by the oil disaster from $75 million to $10 billion. According to informed estimates cited by Madsen, however, the disaster has a real potential cost of at least $1,000 billion ($1 trillion). At best, some Corps of Engineers experts say it could take two years to cement the chasm on the floor of the Gulf of Mexico.
The Obama administration also conspired with BP to hide the extent of the oil leak, according to the cited federal and state sources. First the government  stated that 42,000 gallons per day were gushing from the seabed chasm. Five days later, 210,000 gallons a day. However, submersibles monitoring the escaping oil from the Gulf seabed are viewing television pictures of what they describe as a “volcanic-like” eruption of oil. Satellite imagery reportedly being withheld by the Obama administration, shows that what lies under the gaping chasm spewing oil at an ever-alarming rate is a cavern estimated to be the size of Mount Everest -carefully kept secret to the public.

Danger to the Gulfstream
The oil platform explosion took place almost within the current loop where the Gulf Stream originates. This has huge ecological and climatological consequences. A cursory look at a map of the Gulf Stream shows that the oil will spread to the Atlantic coasts then on to the North Sea and Iceland. Even small changes could have huge impacts. Europe, including England, is not an icy wasteland due to the warming from the Gulf Stream. 

Methane emissions 10.000 times more than normal  is hardly dangerous to the coastal areas – although a gigantic methan bubble was the probable [18] cause of the rig explosion – and [19] no air concentrations have beem published!
[20] Global Research 30 June 2010: The Department of Energy has actively encouraged deepwater drilling for methane hydrates. 440 million metric tons of methane [are] emitted worldwide each year. So the methane from the broken oil equipment constitutes less than one-half of one percent … And probably [21] just 2 % reach the surface.

[22] Infowars 1 July 2010: Why has President Obama waited over two months into the BP oil spill crisis before accepting offers of international assistance that were there from the very start? The Obama [23] BP-oil-wavesadministration has come under fire for not waiving the  [24] Jones Act and thus preventing [25] thirteen entities  foreign ships from taking part in the BP oil spill cleanup.  The U.S. response - No, Thank you. Obama initially blocked international help, citing the Jones Act, which forbids foreign ships from operating between U.S. ports, and thereby preventing the use of sophisticated technology which foreign firms insist could have sealed the leak. The Jones Act can be waived in in cases of national emergencies or in cases of strategic interest. Belgian company DEME contends that it has the specialist vessels to fix the oil leak within two to four months, technology the U.S. does not have. Obama could have the problem solved within a matter of weeks, but he immediately refused the help. Why did Obama reject all the help he could get unless the federal government wants the crisis to get worse so it can exploit the hysteria surrounding the issue to push its ultimate goal of imposing a consumption tax on the American people?

If Obama is able to exploit the oil spill to ram through his cap and trade program, BP stands to profit to the tune of billions. The abundant evidence of deliberate [26] negligence and even sabotage of the oil well  makes it clear to any rational observer that it’s in the best interests of both BP and the federal government to let the crisis roll on indefinitely

And there is corruption involved
[15] Deafening silence of leading green or ecology organizations such as Greenpeace, Nature Conservancy, Sierra Club and others may well be tied to a money trail that leads right back to the oil industry, notably to BP. Leading environmental organizations have gotten significant financial payoffs in recent years from BP. From 2000 to 2006, [27] Lord Browne, the UK Tory Government´s lead Non-Executive Director to be, then BP's chief executive, sat on the Conservation International board – giving it 2 mio. dollars!!!. That [28] Bplifecould explain why the political outcry to date for decisive action in the Gulf has been so muted.

By the way. Who is fighting the oil pollution in the Gulf by means of [29] Corexit – which is forbidden in the UK due to its toxicity? [30] Nalco, owned by Goldman-Sachs, who [31] helped Greece outsmart the EU which later had to bail out a country deprived of its income sources by - Goldman Sachs!  
[32] The New York Times 13 May 2010 Scientists warn that the dispersed oil, as well as the dispersants themselves, might cause long-term harm to marine life. So far, BP has told federal agencies that it has applied more than 400,000 gallons of the dispersant Corexit. Nalco & Co.´s current leadership includes executives from BP and Exxon (Rockefeller). And another 805,000 gallons of Corexit are on order, the company said. But according to EPA data, Corexit ranks far above dispersants made by competitors in toxicity and far below them in effectiveness: Critics say Nalco, which formed a joint venture company with (Rockefeller´s) Exxon Chemical in 1994, boasts oil-industry insiders on its board of directors and among its executives, including an 11-year board member at BP and a top Exxon executive. "It's a chemical that the oil industry makes to sell to itself, basically. The competitor Dispersit is superior according to the EPA and could produce 60.000 gallons a day - but BP would not have it
Corexit 9527, was also sprayed in 1989 on the 11-million-gallon slick created by the Exxon Valdez - all cleanup workers are said to be dead!

[33] BP-olieComment
This is amazing: A disaster threatening the Gulf of Mexico and adjacent countries, the Gulf stream and within a year or 18 months the environment of the whole world – including severe climate deterioration in the direction of a new ice age due to alterations of the [34] Gulfstream, into which the unstoppable/wanted oil spill is now pouring! Nevertheless, it seems that Pres. Obama is unwilling to stop the disaster. A [35] relief well is said to be on target by mid August. Too late and too little? There is a suspicion that the purpose is to drag this catastrophe out so as to soften Congress up to pass the BP/Standard Oil ([36] Rockefeller)-supported cap-and-trade CO2–legislation which is so important to Rothschild and their partners, JP. Morgan, Al Gore, who are languishing to have more profit by imposing further  tolls on us at their [37] climate exchanges in London, Paris – and above all in Chicago, by fulfilling [38] Edmund de Rothschild´s incredible idea of appointing entirely harmless CO2 to be the scoundrel in a [39] lied, non-existent global warming fraud, and [34] here, and [40] here. He would catch CO2 and ship it as solid carbon dioxide to the poles and the Sahara to lower temperatures there!! That they may in fact be imposing a new ice age with tremendous migrations and wars due to a change of the Gulfstream does not seem to matter. They want to [41] reduce our number anyway. But[42] Prof. Dr. Martin Visbeck, head of  the Physikalische Ozeanographie of the  Leibniz-Institute for Ocean Sciences (IFM-GEOMAR) in Kiel says that for the time being there is no danger for Europe. However, if the oil spill goes on unhindered till August the dangers will have to be reconsidered. The [43] Alex Jones Show 14 June 2010: Obama sent an e-mail to influential persons recently to have their support for a CO2-cap-and-trade bill passed in Senate – [44] planning to implement "green economy", [45] killing jobs (2.2 ordinary jobs lost in Spain for every new "green Job) with[46] Stasi-like green [47] brigades to  control every aspect of people´s lives. Dictatorship? Now [48] authorities have forbidden journalists, to come closer than 65 ft to the coastal line in order not to photograpf  oil-smeared birds. Penalty for transgression: Fines of 40.000 dollars - and loss of Job. This is a suspension of the First Amendment.
This is the New World Order (see videos on right margin of this blog): [49] Conceal the ugly truth!
