    Fukushima messing up Pacific this and macondo oil in the gulf, you're right we should force feed wll the rich executives and their children and families. I bet this shit stops then. Me? Not so much seafood on the menu nowadays. Soon our air will be worse. Covert aerosol stratospheric spraying along with Fukushima spewing radiation for over 450 days. We are in trouble.

    Sigh..well.if a couple more go BOOM..a person would suspect it had somthing to with the on-going geological disruption caused by BP.

    So the salt wedge that was encroaching fresh water in Plaquemines Parish..all gone?

    Will this dissipate with the help of corexit, or a substance like it?

    Sink it…Hide it…Is this another game of hide and seek??

      Not exactly. In 2007 B.P. "partnered" with a company called Synthetic Genomics (co-founded by Dr. J. Craig Venter). To make a long story not as long.. what they have done is created a man made (genetically altered) biological – capable of self replication and adaptation. They let this loose in the Gulf, and apparently things are spiraling out-of-control. The "Corexit" is most likely the trace elements the made made organism needs to function, but are not natively found in the Gulf. Reference:

        These guys think this natural solution will work:
        Apparently BP can't do a single thing right when it comes to the catastrophe they've created in the Gulf of Mexico. But somehow they did have hundreds of thousands of gallons of chemical "dispersant" on hand to dump into the Gulf.
        What is this stuff? Is it toxic? It is effective? Are there any alternatives? Answers.

      He's probably standing in line with the rest of the politicians waiting to get their GIANT "donations" from the Energy companies. No, wait.. he's not in line … they deliver! 😉

    I wish there was such a thing as sea monsters …wish one would come up from the Gulf and EAT all the bad people in the world and all the oil execs. I know. It's childish thinking… I'm overly tired, been up all night and all I can do is get all weepy again for all the dolphins and other beautiful creatures that will be dying and suffocating all over again in that pit of poison that was once a beautiful gulf… sorry. I just hate people way too much.
