Gulf Oil Spill - new record
« on: May 02, 2010, 02:49:16 AM »
The MSM has done a lousy job at reporting on the oil spill crisis.  The truth is we have already surpassed the Exxon Valdez spill of 11 million gallons!

Quote
Dr. Ian MacDonald at FSU just produced a new spill-size estimate based on the US Coast Guard aerial overflight map of the oil slick on April 28, 2010. The bottom line: that map implies that on April 28, there was a total of 8.9 million gallons floating on the surface of the Gulf.

That implies a minimum average flow rate of slightly more than 1 million gallons of oil (26,000 barrels) per day from the leaking well on the seafloor. Since we're now in Day 11 of the spill, which began with a blowout and explosion on April 20, we estimate that by the end of the today 12.2 million gallons of oil, at a minimum, have been spilled into the Gulf of Mexico.

The oft-quoted official estimate for the Exxon Valdez spill is 11 million gallons, although some think that is the lower limit of the likely range. It appears that we've just set a very sad new record.

Here are some links to track the spill:

Truly disgusting.  It is time to switch back to ethanol and be done with oil.

At what point in our history did 'crapping in our nest' become a gladiator event? Now we are looking for a fix and that will be our next hero?
Pathetic little humans...
We keep out doing ourselves in bad attempts at mass consumption.

Right, like we need higher food prices too - or haven't you read about this price hike due to the conversion of corn to ethanol.

I'm beginning to wonder if the 'accident' was an act of sabotage.

We'll all be getting the bill when Florida's coast gets hit - the state will have no income from the west coast of Florida from tourism for a very long time.

The northern part of the Gulf of Mexico is already
ecologically screwed up, with anoxic water etc.
They are now turning it into one big energy production
back lot. And, they aren't done...they want everyone
to *pay* for "peak-oil" in an energy system that will
ultimately fail...So in the meantime, be sure to keep
your wallets handy!

Sabotage is a interesting matter. 
One can think  about biological terrorism
But i guess, it will be ecological terrorism on all people at the End.
Oil Prices will sprint up because of safety reasons.
Fish will be more expensive because of less quantity.
And at the end the goverment will ask you
 for a green - nature tax to pay for a biology police ( working via satellite )
to spy on everyone.

@jadaro, 

they can grow plenty of cattails, especially in unused areas (cattails love refuse pools too, which can clean the environment; also grow well on the side of roads, which will soak up hazardous materials from the cars on the road), not to mention collect all yard debris, to make ethanol.  It doesnt have to come from corn or use existing land that is being used for food.  An engine designed for ethanol can get twice the mileage of a gasoline engine.  At least until other technology can be produced.

I've been reading articles, blogs, and forums, all over the web and the MSM is still saying just 5,000 barrels/day, while I have seen reports saying 50,000 and 100,000 barrels/day.  By what I've read, it doesn't look good!  I'll have to try and back track and post the links later.

I agree, some plants are intrumental in the use of cleaning up waste ... I find colver growing all over the place on roadsides down here, it's supposedly good at converitng nitrates.

Also, this oil spill has been determined to have the appearance of 'tea' and be especially thin - unusual.

Here is the "100,000" source:

Quote
Coast Guard Commandant Adm. Thad Allen, "we lost a total well head: it could be 100,000 barrels or more a day."

http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2010/05/02/officials-warn-of-potential-catastrophe-from-gulf-of-mexico-oil-spill/?fbid=Pm-qXeg_gFQ

the 50,000 source is found via the links in the OP.

I almost hate to ask this,
but has anyone here found an exact description
of how all this came to be?

Or how/why there is a second leak as well ?
(Pun NOT intended...)

I have read so many conflicting reports,
I simply don't believe most of them now.

Storm/boat/explosion/terrorism,
I've read so much speculation.

No exacting detail of the events
that led up to the first situation.

Even less about the second leak...

I have the general data that indicates fire,
then explosion, then sinking, then larger leaking.

It just seems light on facts about things to me.

Am I alone about wondering just
exactly what the truth is on this?

Thanks for any clarity on this.
