    That should encourage innovation in bridge design. If I remember right, sulfur dioxide and water is acidic. That technology could be useful for when we colonize other planets (assuming any of us are left)

    Someone needs to step in for these lying maggots! However, I don't trust any of the ones that would step in either… Jindal should be ashamed to show his face.. so should Mary Landreu and all the rest of them….. they know who they are…..

  • FREEDOMROX

    Why do you think none of them will put in appearance in Bayou Corne? They can't take the heat…also, think like they do…

    "Me visit Bayou Corne? I'm the Governor. I can't afford to visit that toxic waste dump!" "Hold it, is this mic still on?"

    • WindorSolarPlease

      FREEDOMROX I think you just said what most of us were thinking…Thanks

      Rainbow, when you come back…let me know because the picture above is very important! Can you figure it out? I have, and need to speak to you before Monday….

    But you have another 300 feet of subsidence zone, where the bases of the cypress trees are covered in oil and water. So make that 900 feet from the highway. And that distance will continue to dwindle as the sinkhole grows.

        This is awesome Freedom!!

          Not really, just a rough in, but if you talk to Rain, tell her to get ahold of me at my site, any thread. We can stop the Monday flaring of H2S.

      • FREEDOMROX

        Pretty basic, but should give an idea of the freshwater/brine conveyor, and show the aquifer is lost.

        Great graphic! I have been wondering how long until the missing salt undermines the cap rock and we see a chunk of it snap off and fall in. Remember that the sharp tremors which were reported 3 or four weeks ago were under the cap rock but above the height of the failed cavern.The depth reported put it at about the depth of the bottom of the cement plug shown in the original Oxy 3 well.

        Great conversation starter and plausible explanation of what is happening down there. The only way to know would be to have some type of radar or sonar imaging. Isn't there a type of geological mapping that can be done from an airplane? I seem to remember finding 3D images of the Gulf and Gulf states that was being done last year. Wonder what they want for a bi weekly flyover?

        • FREEDOMROX

          Actually part of the caprock has already shattered on the western edge and I am afraid exposed the edge salts to the freshwater conveyor, which is why I made it so big. If this keeps you then they will have a cavern heading east of about 2000 ft. in height, and a width of only about 300 ft., which is when you can expect the major cave in and taking approxiamtely 1000 ft. of the western caprock edge that still remains.
          Also, once the 6000 ft. wells are drilled by mid- March, will it be in time to show it?
          I really cannot answer that at this time.
          I am using the model GOSHEP used and mathematically exptroplating.
          Nature uses it's own math.

            Also USGS could do satellite 3D Imaging and Geo Pinging with shots, but this is incredibly expensive, and requires Federal Intervention.

        Thanks for putting that together, Freedomrox.

        • FREEDOMROX

          Thx, but just able to give a clue…for if I had shown all of what I suspect is going on, then it would have been confusing. I really wanted to show how the oil had pervaded the auifer, and how it is coming out the sinkhole, but again, too confusing. Hopefully, given folks an idea and their imaginations and logical responses take it from there.

  • FREEDOMROX

    Also there have been subsidence and two 'burps' and lost trees in the last seven days…

    I commend all of you for your strength. Between this and Fukushima it feels I am inching to death a little more everyday.
