    Now that's a LOT OF OIL!

    Yes, and I am not surprised. I theorized before that following major sough offs of land the gasses and oil leaking into the sinkhole slow down because the pathways it was following collapsed under the pressure of the new soil on top or was plugged by it. I theorized that the oil leak and gas bubbling would resume after some time when the pressurized soup of hydrocarbons re-established a pathway to the surface.

    This latest video supports (not proves) my theory. I would highly recommend that the citizens effected by this ignore reports of positive indications related to the lack of oil / gas being seen following slough offs of the surface layers of soil.

    I also put no stock in the latest report by Hecox of slowing the rebuild of gas pressure in the observation / vent wells after flaring. I think it is just as likely we are seeing the same type of phenomenon underground with respect to the gas. As the gas moves it may be clogging it's own pathways with transported fine soil particles or the pathways could be collapsing after the venting reduces pressure. This does not prove that there is a decrease in the volume of gas in underground formations.

    I think soon it will be too obvious for them to lie about it anymore.

    Fire fighting techniques and zit treatment is to be learned from: pour out zit foam cream on top to prevent a 1.377 megaton zit of 1.5 million barrels of Butane departing at 1600 times before it is too late?, whereas conventional fire fighting techniques tells you to start at the base and conventional zit prevention tells you to open the pores and clean it out

    And it will get considerably bigger in the months ahead, and it will be nasty. Get used to this and hope that the stuff they're skimming doesn't get into your car's engine.

    Good thing Texas Brine's workers are taking time off for the holidays..(sarcasm). Someone needs to be observing to notify the public of status— 24/x7. This sinkhole does not take vacations or time off….its a dangerous situation.

    Does anyone remember the Italian scientists who said "all okay"-no major earthquake possible. Those people were charged with manslaughter..and 6 years in prison when people were killed in a quake after the "pronouncement of safety". Dont see much difference here with either DNR, EPA OR Texas Brine…

  • Are the terminals surrounded by the sinkhole? It looks like the liquid sludge has made its way to the over side of the road.

    I still say that there is nuclear waste in some of those salt domes. They admitted that they were getting radioactive readings over a month ago at the sinkhole. A week or so later they did a radiation sampling by airplane which showed little elevations above normal and I say hogwash to that. The altitude and wind from the plane cannot be accurate readings. The government has long advocated for nuclear waste storage in salt domes for years. They originally said that the radioactive readings at the salt domes was from radioactive waste from the deepwater horizon(BP oil spill rig) that had been authorized to put in some of the salt domes in that area, and I do know that drilling rigs produce radioactive waste, but I am very sceptical that there is only that. There also is a nuclear plant 30 miles from the sinkhole on the way to New Orleans. I also found this Louisianna law that was revised as of 2011 regarding the prohibited use of their salt domes for nuclear radioactive waste storage
    as stated below – look this up –
    2011 Louisiana Laws
    Revised Statutes
    TITLE 30 β€” Minerals, oil, and gas and environmental quality
    RS 30:2117 β€” Radioactive waste disposal; prohibition of disposal of radioactive wastes in salt domes; salt dome usage
    WHY would they have enacted this law if their weren't issues and concerns regarding this practice if it wasn't being done? It also has exlclusions and special exceptions for the government. Afterall the gov has been suoer slow to help????????

    Also look at the latest photos and flyover and all the different nasty colors and scary looking crap besides oil floating around!

    They have opened up pandoras box and do not wan't us to know whats really down some of those caverns! Did you know that there is a hospital 10 miles from this situation in paincourtville that has been told little to nothing about the dangers looming so close to them? That damn sinkhole is right at the edge of the 2 million gallons of butane, which is next to several others containing butane, propane, gasoline, and other petrroleum products that total somewhere near 200 million gallons of flammable / explosive strategic reserves. Worst case scenario is an explosion equivalent to 100 hiroshima bombs! Were talking millions of lives here. And nothing on the national media!! WTF Where is the government. Why arent they getting people out of there? Man this is pissing me off as if you couldn't tell.

      timemachine2020 – re Pandora's Box – an excellent connection to "myth tale wisdom"! Not only Sinkhole, but obviously Fukushima and I think it's fair to say entire global economic structure too! I've thought of Pandora's box off/on last 20 yrs and now sometimes think the box is deeper than deep. Twenty years ago it was "only" "regular" toxins, forest clear-cutting, rivers on fire, and so on that seemed to demand immediate attention.

      I think it's entirely possible that those who've manipulated all kinds of people and 'career opportunities' to get themselves to controlling positions (political, economic, corporate) are flying blind and know it.

      They can't tell us what's going on because they haven't figured it out – but they know enough to know that it's way beyond their capacity to close the lid on Pandora's box.

      They can't tell us how badly they don't know what to do because their belief systems are rooted in "there's an expert class of master thinkers who know everything and can figure any problem out". Up to now they believed that they, each and as a class, were 'expert'.

      It seems for most of them, the plan of approach is to pretend their belief system is still valid, even when they know it's not. So they say stuff that to their minds sounds like "expert" talk. Belief demands they dismiss wisdom from the "non-expert class." Alternatives are unthinkable. (I may overgeneralize – am sketching what I think is part of why they behave…

    Im sorry I meant to say 200 million BARRELLS not Gallons

    @Maggie123 Well put – just like the nucleocrats that have yet to figure out where to put all the nuclear waste sitting in all these spent fuel pools all over the world, especially right here at home. Arnie Gundersen said that in the 20 something Mark 1 GE reactors same as the ones that blew in fukushima that are in the USA there are way more spent fuel in them than is in fukushima. I'm afraid the sad reality for the Japanese that they will lose their country and heritage in the not so far future. Thanks for your feedback.

    This may or may not be on-topic, but just wanted to share anyway… speaking about pandora's box and all…. All of this stuff happening along with Fukushima… it makes me think about …maybe the myth of one-eyed cyclops isn't a myth at all… maybe the old Cyclops was all about radiation-damaged genetically mutated humans? (I warned you it might not be on topic. It's just been on my mind-don't know why. lol). Must have been an old episode of Ancient Aliens or something. πŸ™‚

    And then there is this solution.

    I'm gonna go think of stuff I am thankful for, Thank you contributors and readers alike for your participation.

    Happy turkey day!

    Holy crap that's way worse than it was before.
