Transcript Excerpts

Williams: A morning drive along the beach is routine for Brandan Franklin [chief building and environmental official for Gulf Shores].

Franklin: Just come out monitor the beaches look for new oil that may have washed up.

Williams: Last year almost two million pounds of BP oil was collected from gulf coast beaches. 380 thousand pounds of that came from Alabama.

A quick look at a shell line on West Beach and you can see why. [...]

To give you some idea of how quickly things can change on a cleaned beach, clean up crews were here just a few hours ago this morning but already washing up in the surf, this is what we found [...]

Franklin says it’s up to anyone on the beach to report any oil they find [...]

    Is it even right to call this an aberration anymore? Maybe we can just re-write the textbooks and say that oil always has been washing up ashore at these beaches.

    The never ending disaster. Now down in South Texas Oysters not being sold in restaurants. Porpoises swimming with blotches and look like deep burns, around the Lip snouts scaring and deep looking nasty blotches. This is what is happening to the fish and things That I saw. Made me say that someone is killing the Sea Life.

      It will never end, Markww. The Big Oil and Gas Industry along with the bought and paid for politicians will make sure their is no real cleanup, nor attempts at the preservation of the wildife, seafood, botanical gardens, or restoration of same, since they only chase profits at the expense of all flora and fauna, including the food supply of humanity.

      You have touched upon the true nerve that will sooner or later, spark violent reactions from the people who are waking up to the fact that BP only drew the process of eradication out and made the ecological complications last for so many many more years than ever thought possible with their indiscriminate usage of the Corexit.

      One could readily believe that there really is an extermination agenda perpetrated agains the whole of the Gulf Coast States and the actual Gulf of Mexico eco-system.

    The Bp spill Corexit the bottom of the Gulf and the Sinkhole

    1. The new Madrid is getting ready to rock and roll

    2. Sinkhole will cause the WHOLE SOUTHERN USA TO DISAPPEAR to the Balconies Fault Zone;

    3. Most of the fish population will disappear

    4. The Gulf Stream is gone so the whole Gulf will become a polluted Hole no currents to clean it.

    ALL THANKS TO BP AND STUPID POLITICIANS THAT DO NOT CARE ABOUT AMERICA BUT THEIR DEEP POCKETS OF MONEY AND LIES.

    This whole disaster is bought to you by Tony Hayward who says we are little people.

          I don't know about the ice age, and off course, no-one could make exact predictions, but pretty sure the mild climate in most of Europa would be over. Europa would be more like North Canada.

          Look at a map and compare latitudes in Europa and North America!

            international transport of resources comes to a halt…

        Max, I'm sure the 'gulf stream stopping' is another grand deluded paranoia meme, akin to pole shifting and chemtrails. Don't sweat it.

        Websites like prison planet will have all the latest 'gossip', it's a hive of fruitcake fantasy.

          richard – do I hear "link-bombers" overhead? :)
          Aside from that, there's plenty of real science concerned with the Gulf Stream, should you ever care to investigate. I find it quite interesting actually.
          I remember watching a fascinating TV program on it in the 70's that was my 1st intro to the subject.
          Your certainty it's a grand, deluded paranoia meme suggests you know little about it, which itself is fine, as there's only so much one can become acquainted with, but the lack of a widely informed perspective on a subject doesn't warrant certitude.
          Before you jump on me, be aware I have never posted on HAARP, Chemtrails, pole shift, aliens, Agenda 21, or many other topics, for a variety of reasons, altho I have used religious imagery in rhymes on occassion, if you wish to use that against me.
          I've not previously had the impression you were anti-science, and I don't now, but I am beginning to think you are inappropriately quick with the "knee-jerk" reactions sometimes, on matters you don't appear to be well-informed about.
          Maybe you are keeping your knowledge to yourself.
          If you have time or interest on this subject do check a variety of sources beyond the above more than 2 year old forum posting.

            Thanks or-well, I looked at little further.

            '“NASA has evidence the GS may be speeding up.

            The Met Office statements are based on research by NASA published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters in March 2010. The measurements of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation showed no significant slowing over the past 15 years and the data suggested the circulation may have speeded up by 20 per cent in the recent past, according to NASA.

            NASA found no change in the strength of the circulation between 2002 and 2009. And using the longer set of satellite altimeter data, NASA found that the circulation had actually increased in speed by about 20 percent between 1993 and 2009.'

              Hi richard,
              The more you look the more you'll find;
              something for every opinion in mind!
              The ultimate proof will come in Time.

              Your SO CALLED SPEED UP REPORT is BEFORE the Bp Spill you have not put anything on the table to back up anything you have said so you are nothing more than ht air and a shill. The Gulf Stream by Scientists who were working in the gulf all said the gulf Stream had slowed down and possibly;y stopped right after the Oil was gushing by the thousands of gallons a minute.

                thanks markww.

                i'm no shill or whatever, call me that if you wish.

                when i see science fiction story lines (Day After Tomorrow) being described as real science I can be rather sceptical.

                so, conceded, the gulf stream can alter pace. Somewhat of a climate regulator. But, it is highly unlikely to stop, especially in our life times. Variations of the pace take decades to play out.

                but my point is, it's planet earth we're talking about, we don't control it, it controls us.. I get the sense some people think the world is some ping pong ball that can be flicked around willy nilly.

                we won't alter the GS directly. What we can do is reduce emissions to zero or close, in an attempt to alleviate the fate that may await all on Earth, due our pollutants etc.

                if we simply concern ourselves with reducing the garbage we put out, Earth does the job of taking care of itself.. it always has, and will do for long after the last human walks the surface.

                the GS is a possible symptom, the pollution quite likely a contributor. Let's get on with solving the root of most of our issues, instead of waffling on about planetary systems beyond our immmediate control.

                And don't tell me that hahahaarp creates or can control or can even repair the GS. It'll flip me out.

            Again, like pole shifting, my concern is we are given distractions that are beyond the scale of anything we can humanly do about it.

            But that's ok I suppose, might as well go around kicking all the tyres, there's very little effectiveness going on anyway.

Come down to Corpus Christi and go to the Portland bride on a boat look at the Dolphins the Porpoises swimming with blotches.,and mouths torn from some kind of a disease. people reporting burns and skin problems along the Gulf Coast from tar balls and corexit. Oil and Other problems including methane in samples taken in Florida,and other places you can find that too with Tv News reports.
    fishing was stopped by the State of Texas Northern Gulf, you can find that online too.

    Anytime Richard

    I go fishing with some vets along the coast down by Corpus Christi and we have talked to other fisherman and see the things first hand. Oysters on small wade reefs we could only pick during the months that have ER in them. Russel said he did not go cause some restaurants like the Longhorn have stopped selling fried oysters.

    Donell loves Oysters fried and he was sad so he had to order a small steak instead.

    Russel our fishing buddy who goes fishing every week, says he is going to check three oyster companies and see if they are still selling.There is also a warehousing system that sells to business he will check too since he has a business license.

    Catches of SHRIMP on the boats have been smaller too, the JUMBOS MS IDA says are not jumbos but mediums,she knows , she has been buying shrimp off the boats for years. She said that the boats com in and usually sell out by noon but no large Shrimp seen . We never got a chance to go down to Packery Channel Park to see what was going on down there due to storms and heavy rains in the area. All three of us will go down and check the bait shops and sellers. There is one small place that has one boat but all 4 times we have gone down to this mans seafood store he has been closed said Nothing in his store, so we do not know if he is going out or no fish being caught or shrimp. We will ask him about the oyster reef by his place too. in the next month or so.

    Take action! Take responsibility for your own life, and the lives of your family. When you buy seafood, check the package, so you know where it comes from. Wild caught seafood from the Gulf of Mexico contains oil and corexit. Wild caught seafood from the Pacific Ocean has Fukushima radiation contamination. Farm raised fish from China are being fed pig manure. Pig Manure? Really? More and more of the food supply is tainted. Pick and choose carefully what you eat, and what you allow your family to eat. If you are in a restaurant, and they do not or cannot identify where the seafood comes from, make another selection. When you choose not to eat a product, your choice aggregates with the choices of others, to create a crash in the seafood market. If the Pacific Seafood Industry crashes, it helps the world to put the true costs of nuclear power into perspective. If the Gulf of Mexico Seafood Industry crashes, it helps the world to put the true costs of our use of fossile fuels into perspective. Your choices matter. Not only to your own health, but in the world marketplace. Many thanks for making a difference, ENEnewsers!
