Nothing is what it seems in BP's Mega Oil disaster in
the Gulf Of Mexico.
Perhaps it was the 14 Jan political overthrow
of authoritarian president Zine El-Abidine Ben Ali who had ruled Tunisia
with an iron fist for the last 23 years and the ensuing popular uprising
in the Middle East uprising against tyranny, corruption, highhandedness
and misrule. Even the world's 10th largest military might could not suppress
the civilian uprising which has until today lasted 17 days. President Hosni
Mubarak who had a tight control of the Egyptian armed forces is expected
to step down any time soon. (He stepped down 2 days after this article
Perhaps the lies and cover-ups of the Gulf Oil Spill disaster are bursting
at the seams. Like any cancerous terminal illness, it is no longer possible
to cover the lesions and symptoms with "cosmetics". The
only escape hatch is to spin and muddle the pool. With sufficient willful
ignorance in the world's populace, the perpetrators of the BP's Mega-oil
spill disaster could escape Scott free just like the 911 disaster.
911 served as the main reason for the War on Terror; triggering the Afghan,
Iraqi wars, Homeland Security and Patriot Acts etc.
Despite the many "hanging and disturbing" questions, pysops were
used to put the blame on innocent parties while the powers behind the disaster
reaped enormous economic windfalls from the "fallout" of the
disaster. Americans and the world are still paying the real costs. Project
911 disaster was so successful there was no question of an encore which
had to be bigger, longer and more devastating to generate even bigger windfall.
The world was ripe for climatic changes. Gradual climatic changes are non-destructive
and do not generate windfalls for those in the know. Catastrophic climatic
Project Gulf Disaster
What better way to herald the onset of a global
catastrophic climate change by triggering an already precarious world with
an apparently accidental mega-disaster? If Project 911 disaster was
planned prior to Bush being elected in 2000, then Project Gulf Disaster
must have been planned soon after 911 was successfully executed. It was
planned to explode in October of 2009 within the first year of the new
president. It would have been the new president's 1011 to further erase
persistent doubts that Bush's 911 was preplanned. The details are contained
in a book under compilations.
Would they risk the success of Project Gulf Disaster by the growing independent
voices of truth in the Mega-Oil spill? The answer is NO.
Stamping out the independent voices of truth.
After more than 7 months of trying to stamp out our independent voices
of truth in the BP's mega oil spill without success, the powers behind
the Project Gulf Disaster had to act urgently before the growing
masses of "non-believers in controlled mainstream media"
become unmanageable. Whatever their fears, there was definitely a step-up
in desperate attempts to silence the independent voices of truth on the
BP's Mega Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico at the start of the new year.
The increasing health problems being reported by the gulf victims, scientific
findings of higher than expected oil/corexit tainted gulf water, increasing
evidences of a dying gulf and unprecedented occurrence of shallow low magnitude
earthquakes are confirming our worst fears on the Mega Oil Spill crisis.
While it might have been possible to gag the independent voices of truth
and cover the initial consequences of the disaster, a gulf stream that
remains dead, mysterious mass deaths of birds and fishes and extreme
weather conditions (among other weather abnormalities) would be difficult
What would happen when Australia realises that their 6 billion dollar flood
disaster was no freak catastrophe but part of the chain of tragic events
triggered by BP's mega oil spill disaster?
Sounds far-fetched? Not if you understand our logical analyses (compilation
in progress) on how the world not only inherited 3 leaking wells through
willful negligence, but through incompetence intertwined with vested business
interests, fears of job losses, cover-ups and greed, BP had "unwittingly"
engineered the world's largest network of faulted-fractured pathways for
"natural" oil and gas seeps. Impossible? Then consider this simple
- Is it possible for oil/gas gushing out of an 9-7/8
inch casing well to stop the massive gulf stream?
Art Berman (a pro-BP apologist) in his attempt to justify a lower estimated
flow from the blown well, reproduced statistics from MMS on more
than 8,700 wells drilled in the Gulf of Mexico since 1996.The highest known
flow rate per well is approximately 100,000 bpd (barrels per day). See
Oil Flow from the BP Mississippi Canyon Block 252 "Macondo" Well.
He nevertheless, omitted the fact that there were 3 leaking wells NOT
ONE, when the article was published on 29 June 2010. His most reasonable
estimate was 40,000 - 50,000 bpd for one well. With 3 gushing wells, Art
Berman's total flow rate would have been 120,000 to 150,000 bpd.
But would 3 vertical columns of oil/ gas at 150,000 bpd be able to stop
the mighty gulf stream which moves 30 million cu metres of water per sec
or 188.7 million barrels per sec? 150,000 bpd translates to only 0.28 cu.metres
per sec (or just 0.000001% of the Gulf Stream flow). No wonder Tony Hayward
said the leak was only a tiny drop in the ocean.
Further, if the oil had not been dispersed with Corexit, much of the spill
would have streamed to the sea surface and be continually removed from
the water column. The surface oil layers would have no significant effect
in stopping the largely thermohaline circulation driven gulf-stream flow
at 30 million cu metres of water per sec (Wikipedia).
So how did the Gulf Stream die?
The fact that the Gulf Stream flow did stop is
proof that a lot more oil and gas did flow out of the reservoirs than officially
declared. The amount of oil spilled had to be more (even greater than 150,000
bpd) but not all came out through the wells. The 10inch diameter casing
could not accommodate such massive free flows.
By irresponsibly drilling into a known geohazardous gas-hydrate Salt-Geology,
for so many months (from Oct 2009 to April 2010) without adequate cement-protection
against hydraulic continuity between the gaseous strata, BP had negligently
allowed corrosive "brine-gas" fluid to permeate and erode the
highly porous, faulted and fractured Salt geology. The additional oil and
gas flowing or seeping out of these newly "created" (eroded)
pathways to the ocean bottom are far larger than what we can imagine and
there are abundant evidences.
Ask yourself these simple questions.
If the "oil leak" had been fully sealed
on 15 Sept 2010 as promulgated, what were 4 expensive drilling rigs with
5 wells-drilling capacity and many more supporting vessels doing at the
Macondo site? Why were 2 drilling rigs (Development Driller III and Development
Enterprise) still at site 3 months later? All these just confirmed the
oil and gas had not stopped leaking from the reservoir and neither has
the widespread hydrates stopped vaporising into poisonous methane gas.
In fact the leakages and vaporisation should be increasing by logical reasoning.
The fact that no quantitative surveys are conducted 9 months after the
blowout is itself strange and worrying, not only for the gulf residents
but the world as well.
Immediately after the disaster, good-intentioned BP's managers wanted
to contain and collect the oil through 3 giant containment domes at 3 spill
locations. Does the 3 spill locations jive with the 3 well locations? Why
was this sound containment and recovery method canceled at the last minute?
Officially it was the problem of hydrate formation blocking the flow or
collection. But insiders' information revealed that the first of the 3
containment domes, was still parked on a clear seabed a km away from the
spill area when BP announced on 8 May that the containment efforts had
failed due to clogging by formation of hydrates crystals. The significance
of this containment effort failure escaped public attention even though
it was mentioned in at least 3 of my past articles. Exactly how did hydrates
form with no supply of methane gas? If it did, we should be seeing hydrates
formation on every piece of equipment on the Macondo seabed. Makes sense,
This BP's mega-oil spill disaster is not referred to as Crime of the Century
by Mass Deception for nothing. The dome containment effort did not fail.
How could it fail when it was not never deployed over the leaking location?
BP could not allow it to be deployed at any of the "leak locations"
as the Rov's cameras would have exposed BP's lies as they were being deployed.
You see, the 3 spill locations were actually 3 well locations on the seabed
and not 3 leakage points on the 5,000ft riser as reported by the
mainstream media. You do not need 3 numbers of multimillion dollar containment
domes if the 3 leakages were on the single riser. By cutting off the riser,
you get only one Leakage. Elementary isn't it?
Three (3) containment domes were needed because there were 3 leaking
wells at 3 different locations on the seabed. Sometimes, the earliest
statements and responses of a disaster reveal the naked truths.
How could methane hydrates form within the dome when there was no methane
gas flowing through them yet? Like everything else it is not that they
did not know but what they could not tell. But what they could not tell
was in full frontal view to the whole world; like the "naked emperor
with no clothes".
If the containment technology had not been sound, why did BP announced
on 20 Sept 2010 (4 months later) its intention to join the Marine Well
Containment Company (MWCC) and to make its underwater well containment
equipment available to all oil and gas companies operating in the Gulf
of Mexico? If the well containment equipment and technology were useable
why did BP abandon the containment effort altogether instead of using it
to minimise the environmental damage while the relief wells were in progress?
Why allow the oil and gas to gush uncontrollably for so many months before
the well was capped or killed? Well A which was drilled to only 5,000ft
BML could have been killed as early as May. But a dead well A would have
exposed the fact that the largest leak was the undisclosed well S20BC,
720 ft NW of well A. Corexit had to be used to disperse and hide the oil
gushing out of the third well. How would it look if Well A was dead and
yet the sea was still covered with oil?
That was the primary reason BP was so insistent on using Corexit even after
EPA had withdrawn permission for its usage. More environmental friendly
alternatives were not considered simply because the real oil gusher (and
not well A) would be known in no time.
- Question Of Production Of Corexit By Nalco Which Is
Associated With Bp And Exxon.
In just 3 months after the Deepwater Horizon exploded on April 20, 2010,
BP pumped nearly 2 million gallons of Corexit into the Gulf ofMexico (The
Examiner, 25 July 2010).
The $64 million question is, "If corexit had been banned by UK more
than a decade ago, and its adverse effects widely known after the Exxon
Valdez spill in 24 March 1989, why would any company find it profitable
to continue producing a banned product in such large quantities?"
Even storing such hazardous liquids would be expensive.
How could such toxic dispersant (with no other industrial application)
be available in such large quantities so soon after the blowout? Is it
not strange for a company known for aggressive cost cutting to have such
large quantities of dispersant on standby as if a major oil spill was expected?
But did not BP's safety policy require a relocation of well location
if there was a drilling risk? Surely an exploration well cannot be that
important it cannot be moved by 500m or even 1 km? Well locations are being
moved all the time on perceived drilling risks. That was the primary
purpose of geohazards assessment and survey. Most international safety
policies (including BP's) employ "Better be safe than sorry"
principle. So why would BP choose the expensive and risky option of drilling
into trouble rather than the prudent option of a safer location?
Was it just plain business acuteness or pre-disaster rammed up production
of Corexit? Many had asked the "profit motive" of a preplanned
disaster but neglect to follow through on the economic windfalls
to be reaped if one could accurately forecast the occurrence of a major
The Gulf Stream would not have died if Corexit was not used in such
If the oil and gas had been collected at the wells
instead of the phoney Top-Kill, or even allowed to rise quickly to the
surface, the Gulf Stream would not have died. It died because the
oil and gas were dispersed and allowed to accumulate within the water column,
effectively homogenizing and destroying the thermohaline stratification
needed for the gulf stream to circulate. If BP had not used dispersant,
the oil would have surfaced, washed ashore and removed from the water column
instead accumulating and mixing within the gulf-stream water column.
The rov evidences showed even more gas vents along all the fault lines.
On a single 2-hour Rov surveillance tour (deviously labelled as biological
survey), the Rov traversed back and forth from Well A to at least 7 gas
vents (at 10-15 deg intervals). All the gas vents had been marked with
guide ropes and marker buoys. This confirmed BP knew more gases were gushing
out of the seabed.
So how much methane vaporised from hydrates due to the warming effect of
the hot hydrocarbons and how much light hydrocarbons escaped from the reservoir?
The light hydrocarbons probably carried radioactive elements as well. It
is impossible to estimate accurately. Minimal estimates arrived at, are
It is the combined effect of dispersed oil, continuous gas-venting along
the fault lines and edges of the salt domes over hundreds of sq km and
the continual vaporisation of hydrate to gaseous methane that knocked out
the gulf-stream. Not the puny gas leak gushing out of well A which mermerised
the world for 187 days. The total volume of escaping gas over the whole
Macondo prospect would be hundreds of time larger than the total volume
of oil leaked out through the wells and fault zones. In our past articles,
we had demonstrated the potent sub-seabed erosion of escaping light hydrocarbon
and brine (from formation) through the faulted and porous Salt domes. If
containment efforts had been used in earnest instead indiscriminate "killing
of the zombie wells" the environmental and climatic consequences would
have been far less damaging. Rather than reveal the truth about the 3 wells,
BP chose to herald the onset of Catastrophic Climate by engineering
the world's largest network of faulted-fractured pathways for "natural"
oil and gas seeps.
The faster than normal erosion within the formation and sub-seabed, stretching
from 18000 ft BSL to the seabed has far-reaching effect; more drastic
than BP had ever anticipated. The abnormal high and speedy depletion of
mass which is significantly more pronounced in the upper formation and
sub-seabed, has two important consequences.
For millions of years, the south-eastern part of the North American tectonic
plate (south-east of the New Madrid Fault line) has been thrusting in a
north-easterly direction while the western half of the plate has been moving
south along the San Andreas fault line. This is the main reason for the
present gulf seabed morphology (one full chapter by itself).
The resultant torsion tension is reflected by the fault pattern illustrated
in a previous article BP's Rigs Location & Fault Connection.
Besides lateral stresses, vertical stresses also developed between the
upper and lower section of the tectonic blocks due to differential slide
movement. The abnormal occurrence of shallow (2-3 km depth) and low magnitude
earthquakes since the Macondo blowout is the direct consequence of the
continual release of these pent-up stress zones. FEMA recently sent out
RFI (request for information) to identify vendors for the emergency supply
of food rations, various fuels and hydration in support of disaster relief
efforts based on a catastrophic disaster event within the New Madrid Fault
system for a survivor population of 7 million to be utilised for the sustainment
of life during a 10-day period of operations. Is FEMA having privileged
information of an impending disaster in the New Madrid Fault area, 9 months
after the BP's Mega-oil Spill disaster?
If the blown-well had not been blocked, the problem would have been easily
and safely resolved. But safe recovery was not in BP's best interest;
covering their mistakes and bad intentions were.
BP's continued denial and cover-ups had triggered a chain of calamities
not only in the US but all over the world starting with abnormally cold
and prolonged winter in the Northern Hemisphere, followed by the worst
floods in the documented history of northern Australia.
Major volcanic eruptions had worldwide climatic consequences lasting for
years. Why would this massive underground eruption and continuous spewing
of oil and gas spanning hundreds of sq km for over 9 months be any different?
We choose to be willfully ignorant to our own peril.
Some words of wisdom from Dr Thomas B Manton (TBM), a Gulf Hero who was
recently murdered after being framed-up in late 2007. That this could happen
shows that Project Gulf Disaster was planned years earlier under broad
daylight and right under the public noses.
"Manton was particularly distressed that the U.S. Federal Government
allowed BP to completely take charge of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill disaster area, as his experience
taught him that the offending oil company should never be given command
over the oil spill response."
"BP has done more damage to harm the American homeland than al-Qaeda
could ever do."
"We learned very quickly the difference between we Americans, who
prefer to contain and collect spilt oil, and the British who preferred
the use of dispersant to try to make it disappear in the ocean."
Nine months after the onset of the oil/gas eruptions, the climatic consequences
of the Gulf Disaster are starting to show. Fishes, dolphins, whales and
birds are dying in masses. There are sound geological reasons for all these
observed abnormalities. The people in the oil industry know the reasons
but are not telling for fear of their jobs and their lives. The top advocates
of truth in this disaster are dead for a number of good reasons; but primarily
to serve as a deterrent to those would be whistle-blowers.
Deregulations and "Thou Shalt Not Fail" command.
Meanwhile before the masses start to connect the
dots and ask the really difficult questions, the independent voices need
to be silenced first. To the detractors who repeatedly pointed out that
TBM was arrested more than 2 years before the Gulf Disaster, bear in mind
any disaster in planning requires more time than than a routine exploration
well. Project Gulf Disaster needed years of planning with the right collaborators
in place. It was no coincidence Tony Hayward took over as BP's CEO in early
Then, between January and March of 2001, incoming Vice President Dick Cheney
conducted secret meetings with over 100 oil industry officials allowing
them to draft a wish list of industry demands to be implemented by the
oil friendly administration. Cheney also used that time to re-staff the
Minerals Management Service with oil industry toadies including a cabal
of his Wyoming carbon cronies. In 2003, newly reconstituted Minerals Management
Service genuflected to the oil cartel by recommending the removal of the
proposed requirement for acoustic switches. The Minerals Management Service's
2003 study concluded that "acoustic systems are not recommended because
they tend to be very costly."
It was no coincidence Vice President Dick Cheney started to dismantle and
relax stringent offshore regulations as far back as 2003. Even with an
outdated (pre-2000) stringent offshore regulations and high HSE standards,
minor random accidents and blowouts could still happen. But no way could
a long series of "coincidental safety lapses and human mistakes"
escalate into a major environmental disaster needed for Project Gulf Disaster.
For this to happen, all control "floodgates" must be opened at
the right time at the right places without arousing suspicions. Now that
would be difficult without a subservient "watchdog" (MMS?) and
a cooperative press that asks only the "right" questions.
Deregulations, bottom-line/profitability and "cost-cutting measures"
come in handy.
Was it any wonder the door sign at Tony Hayward's office read "What
would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail"? Was this
supposed to push his men to failure? He must have countless problems with
professional managers who would have objected to to his seemingly unsafe,
risky and reckless exploration management. Surely there would be many truly
professional managers who disagreed with the locations of the Macondo wells,
who saw the problems ahead and who assessed the drilling risks as they
truly saw it. Tony Hayward probably overrode all their concerns with the
phrase "we could not fail". It was like saying "Go
ahead and jump off the cliff. You will not die". This was by itself
a blatant violation of BP's or any international standard HSE policy.
As President of the International Oil Spill Control Corporation, TBM was
perceived as a major obstacle to the success of Project Gulf Disaster,
if he chose to be uncooperative and to speak out.
TBM needed to be reined with a noose around his neck, in order to secure
his cooperation. TBM was tricked into a plea bargain in late May, about
a month after the 20 April 2010 blowout. He accepted the plea bargain (with
a promise of no jail sentence) so that he could concentrate his effort
on the oil spill remediation effort. Now that is a real hero.
He could have fought the court battles to prove his innocence but the victims
of the gulf disaster were more important to him. There are good fundamental
reasons why TBM's pornography conviction will not hold but being computer
illiterate, TBM was convinced it was a Slam Dunk for the prosecution.
Why TBM & Matt Simmons needed to be silenced?
There was never any need to jail or kill TBM even
as late as July 2010 since BP was still confident of killing the spewing
3rd well covertly before the first week of August. The relief wells were
drilled towards this S20BC well at 18,000ft BML and not Well A. To ensure
the "Dog and Pony" show at Well A was convincing even to the
strongest skeptics, the relief wells had to intercept and bottom-kill the
runaway well first. Nothing was left to chance; certainly not in frontal
view of billions of television viewers around the globe.
Relief well C intercepted the spewing well covertly in early July.
Just when success was within grasp, the "relief well-bottom kill"
started to falter and did not hold as predicted by many. Worried
their "Grand Phoney Finale" of killing Well A would fall apart
and expose their crime of mass deception, BP set out to destroy the credibility
of the Gulf Disaster's foremost critic, the Late Matt Simmons. It was no
coincidence that The Oil Drum (TOD) published "A critical Examination
of Matt Simmons' Claims on the Deepwater Spill" on 29 July2010 for
Simmons to be publicly humiliated and severely trashed by his peers in
the oil industry.
Just when they thought the last flame of truth had been snuffed out,
the article Why is the BP's Macondo Blowout So Disastrous and Beyond
PatchUp was published the following day on 30 July. The article received
an unprecedented 6,000% jump in website visits. Why? Because of its accurate
depiction of the hazardous Salt geology in explaining the Macondo gas blowout.
BP's schills immediately jumped in at all the blog forums to stamp out
the "fire" but it was too late.
Shocked by the accuracy of the qualitative geological model and the wide
support by proMatt Simmons bloggers, BP thought the counter-attack must
have been preplanned based on breached confidential information. To make
matters worse, the supposedly killed well (S20BC) started spewing again
on 2nd Aug with an abnormal earthquake event at Louisiana. The phony well
kill at Well A did not turn out as expected. Thad Allen and BP were at
a loss to explain the 40% cement loss at well A.
How do you lose 200 barrels of cement to the seabed, out of 500 barrels
pumped into a dead well 18,000 ft long? Only an open-bottom Well A drilled
to only 5,000 ft deep (BML) could explain the severe cement loss to the
seabed and BP was desperate to cover this fact.
As a punishment and a deterrent to further breaches, TBM was sentenced
to an unduly harsh 15 years jail time on 6 Aug 2010; effectively silencing
a totally shocked TBM who had expected only a fine and no jail time from
the plea bargain. Two days later the late Matt Simmons was dead in a bath
How could such perfectly timed incidences all be coincidental? No way unless
the "Physics of Impossibility" was invoked. The weeks of
silence that followed was taken as a sign that the deterrents (TBM's harsh
sentence and Matt Simmons' death) had worked.
Now to silence the remaining Independent Voices Of Truth
Fastforward to January 2011, we see the same pattern
of attack. Dr Termotto's article The Gulf Of Mexico Is Dying posted on 1st December,
generated tremendous readers' response and rekindled waning public interests
on the disaster. Interest on the Gulf disaster started to pick up again
after the Christmas and new year holidays following the abnormally cold
winter in Europe; disrupting travel and closing airports during this busy

Following the late Matt Simmons' suspicious death in the bathtub on 8 August
2010, everyone in the Independent Voices Of Truth group was constantly
reminded of possible infiltrators and threats to their normal lives and
computers. BK in particular had experienced several attempts on his life
for carrying out his professional duties as a QC consultant in the oil
industry. The Oil Mafia is dead serious in protecting their interests and
covert operations. Their multibillion game would be up once exposed.
Despite making police reports based on documented evidences in several
countries and making several whistle-blower reports to the oil companies,
his own employer (Geohazards QC Consultant Firm), the world's largest geohazards
contractors and various government departments in the respective countries,
no actions or prosecutions were ever taken for the blatant safety abuses,
medical and data frauds, corruption, improprieties, infractions, willful
negligence and HSE deception. We are not talking about 3rd world countries
but first world countries within the top 15 list of the world's least corrupt
The worst offenders are major oil companies like BP; and the offending
contractors and consultants are leading companies in their respective fields
in the oil industry. It shows how high, far and wide, corrupt oil power
had infiltrated into modern society and governments of the world. Without
such high level oiled corruption, Project Gulf Disaster could not even
be planned, let alone executed with such blatant deception. Modern high
speed internet, strategic global coordination and dissemination of distorted
truths by mainstream media helped greatly in dowsing the ever-willing to
be deceived populace. We are what we eat. Ignorant bliss lasts only
as long as the calm before the storm. That storm is pretty near.
The Oil Empire Strikes back
The Oil Empire could not sit back and watch helplessly
as the Independent Voices Of Truth Websites gain in popularity while their
carefully crafted deceptions got torn apart one by one with each revealing
posting. There were increasing reports of computer breaches by members
of the independent group. After increasing signs of covert
retaliations by the Oil Empire, Dr Tom finally managed to secure BK's permission
to make public his endangered status in mid January. On 19 Jan during a
Rense.com radio interview, Dr Tom publicly discussed BK's fugitive status
and life threats. The next day we all received news that Dr Thomas B Manton
(TBM) had passed away on 19 Jan 2011 after suffering quietly from extreme
head trauma inflicted by a fellow prisoner assailant. He was warned
with death threats if he informed on his assailant.
Two days later, BK's computer was repeatedly hacked for 2 weeks; forcing
BK to move locations and changing IP elusive tactics. Others in the group
had also reported computer breaches. Then on 7 Feb, in the midst of the
busy Lunar New Year holidays, Dr Tom was publicly slandered just like Late
Matt Simmons was prior to his "assassination". With such
concerted attacks on members of the independent group, it could only mean
the messages of truth were finally getting out to the concerned public
and the independent voices of truth had to be silenced at all
Our lives are in extreme danger for bringing the truths on the Gulf oil
crisis to the world. As we dig deeper into a seemingly "accidental
disaster" we find the oil business to be much dirtier than the black
gold it craves. After more than 100 years, the oil industry has morphed
into a global uncontrollable monster that has the world tightly under its
clutch. With each crude oil price hike, the increase in oil pressure pushes
out a few more safety catches in the system. As we have seen in BP's Mega-oil
spill and the negligent manner in which BP conducted its oil exploration
program, safety in form and not in spirit is no safety at all. Sadly, BP
is not the only culprit in this greedy pursuit of oily profits by any
This is a disaster that need not have happened and should not have happened.
But it did happen. There are valuable lessons to be learned but most important
of all, this disaster has not ended and the long term health and environmental
effects need world attention to force a comprehensive remediation,
not just superficial compensation. The hydrocarbons leakage from the deep
reservoir and methane vaporisation from the warming effect of that leakage
have not stopped yet.
Allowing the culprits of this disaster to get back their life of luxurious
yacht sailing while the Gulf victims suffer in silence, is gross injustice
of the highest degree. Will the Gulf Disaster go the way of Piper Alpha,
Exxon Valdez, Bhopal and countless other environmental disasters; forgotten
and ignored, only to be repeated years later? Even as the Gulf Victims
suffer, new schemes are being planned. Covert white-collar CRIMES OF
MASS DESTRUCTION are unscrupulously profitable and all our laws had
not been formulated to deal with this cancer of modern society. Our energy
and attention had been overly zapped and focused on the War on Terror,
that we the public (the guardian of our children's freedom, safety
and future) lapsed in our duty to notify the "infection"
and enemies from within.
Only through the collective efforts of global citizens worldwide, can we
avert the next mega disaster; whether man-made or naturally accidental.
Even if you do not entirely agree with our analyses, there is no harm in
making the oil and other industries safer by practicing HSE in true spirit
and not only in form. Increasing offshore regulations without understanding
the root problem of industry-wide abuses would only increase cost with
no tangible improvement in safeguarding the environment.
An immediate total ban to offshore drilling is not the solution either.
Reviewing the abundant offshore data would be the first step to understanding
the challenges we face before taking concrete steps to solving the problem.
No amount of sabotage or evil-planning can succeed if everyone of us is
civil enough to report willful negligence when we see it. "Willful
Blindness" as Bernand Madoff coined it is simply not acceptable.
We must all take responsibility for our own environment. We cannot delegate
custody of mother nature to the oil companies. It would be asking the
Fox to guard the chicken coop. We must ask questions so tough that
no regulators would dare to derelict on their duties to act promptly
and fairly on whistleblowers' reports of willful negligence. There
