    Wow! Nessy, is that you?

      I mean, after taking in all the other news, seeing those trees being swallowed up in this 'impossible' vertical fashion, is a welcome and relaxing distraction.

  • Did a post this week detailing how the Gulf came under more geological stress… then the quake & collapsed houses in Acapulco…

    • Time Is Short Time Is Short

      Matt Simmons was right all along:

      "The BP blow-out with a seafloor fissure sending methane below Bayou Corne scenario is true.

      BP disaster court documents show BP had 3 wells (not one) that had a big problem resulting in what is called the Macondo blow-out. The event affected frozen methane under the Gulf of Mexico. When hot (BP) oil met frozen (solid) methane it turned it to a methane gas that became self-fracking.

      THESE ARE NOT PAST EVENTS.. They are ongoing…The BP Blow-out severely damaged an already fractured site. While capped the casing was lost and as a result hot oil is meeting frozen methane and in combination they are self fracking their way along the salt formation leading up to Bayou Corne.

      In other words, the BP accident leaked now hot oil and it seeped up hitting the frozen methane and it exploded. BP’s big secret is they had 3 shady well points (not one) that they got using illegal submersibles. The rule is they have to use a fixed rig to get the oil and they were cheating with the other system. They had a ‘loss of control’ well problem 2 days before the ‘big event’ and when it occurred they improperly sealed it. Also the Earth’s crust is thinnest there and BP wasn’t supposed to be drilling around that fragile spot.

      They cannot stop the methane monster."


      He just didn't go far enough. It's much worse.

        TIS, THANK YOU for remembering Matt Simmons. Also, there was a Macondo Well 252-A and Macondo Well 252-B. They changed the videocam during Hurricane Bonnie that summer (the long/lat markings changed slightly) so the public thought that Well A (capped the year earlier) was really Well B. It's been gushing and gushing ever since. We are still very sad about Matt Simmons, we believe that he was murdered for what he tried so hard to reveal, and we want him to be remembered.

    There's another video, one single tree, sinking into the water(?) and then thrashing around like it's being eaten alive by something below the surface.

      Yes, but this one is already offered above by ENENEWS. You can click at "new video" or "yesterday's video". I know, the layout is a bit confusing at times.

      • davidh7426 davidh7426

        Maxli… Thank you, I know, the event that ENENews put up was yesterday, the one that I linked to was this morning, it's more of a 'desert' to yesterdays 'main course'.

        And I wouldn't say that the layout is confusing, I've been following the sinkhole since last september.

    With hindsight we can see at http://folkworm.ceri.memphis.edu/heli_temp/X106_HHZ_NM_00.2013071500.gif that
    14h17 is the time at this heli running via the same line far across. (old trans ocean quake).
    Henceforth the fluid is spreading freely at depths where it could only have been injected or extracted previously, lubricating the platforms where the new observatory epicenter has emerged with a vertical void which leaves little horizontal stability due to the permeation of the basin and tectonic plates, placing an over burden on the recently fortified berms when what is lost vertically is being replaced horizontally where water and oil seeps through without sufficient pressure from the inside out, while filling in after displacement caused by slide movements which was noticed more towards the south this month. (Please regard this as speculative chatting and not as endorsed science for peace’s sake).

    There are a myriad of problems/deceptions surfacing around the country. Unfortunately, when you have a government servicing business these things happen, too often. The "giants of industry" will do as they wish knowing their pocket politicians will block the facts and protect their bottom line. The people will end up paying the price, as usual. Either in lost health, lost jobs or lost lives. Nothing personal, just doing business…


    The average citizen,( being fettered with silly things, (to businessmen), such as morality, patriotism etc. has a problem grasping how business/government can act so recklessly, the "giants of industry" are "…just doing business".

    Seen the last flyover from Bayou Corne? Looks like it has doubled in size again. Almost joined with the bayou. More pollution for all downstream, including the Gulf. When does it end?

      The smoking gun which proves TEXAS BRINE blew out the cavern side. Wish they could do more analysis and tell everyone where the rest of the subsidence will happen. And hey..why not try the same technology at Fukushima? Find the Corium????
