MC252 and surroundings, home to BP’s infamous well and the Macondo reservoir. We found what we were looking for, and much that we had hoped not to find.

[...]

What we did not expect was to see that kind of rainbow sheen and substantial amounts of fresh-looking oil around the Macondo reservoir. But find it we did.

The stuff within a few miles of MC252 looked like this [...]

    The ride is on again. That slick is huge. That's probably not a 'leak', it's more like Macondo was blown off in the last storm.

    And the silence from lame steam media is a betrayal to the public.

    The media cannot be trusted, they are so bought and owned by who knows what, whatever it is, it's not for the interest of the general good of the public.

    I've been reading some good conjecture here on ENE today. Vic's idea that corexit waste is in the sinkhole makes sense. Other people's comment of the general publics blindness also ring true.

    Seems the only sensible place in the world in ENE

      I wonder if Anderson Cooper will stand up to BP again?

      I hope so. He was brilliant at it.

      You need to realise, Richard, that media is not a public service. Media is a business. You will only hear the truth from media outlets who are not commercially invested in the situation. If they are owned by big oil, gas, whatever, they will never say a word that will hurt their owner's commercial interests unless there is NO WAY POSSIBLE to ignore it. People have this idea that the media will tell you what's going on. Er, no, not if it isn't in their financial interest to say anything.

      Richard,
      From what I have researched it is leaking from cracks on the ocean floor and will continue to do so as once again the technology has not been discovered yet to rectify this catastrophe. Sound familiar?

      It seems the local press has abandoned coverage of the sinkhole: "Press Abandons Bayou Corne

      It is obvious this week that major news outlets in Louisiana have cut back on reporting about the Bayou Corne sinkhole.

      Thanks to individuals who get videos out, record the community meetings on YouTube and take personal initiative to get facts we are able to get information. NO THANKS to the regular news newspapers and tv news which used to do adequate coverage daily.

      Here is a great example – The Advocate today has an important article from AP linking the giant oil sheen (oil slick) to BP. The name of the BP offshore well is Mocando and the rig that burned up is the Deepwater Horizon. They manage to make up a headline with neither!
      Gulf oil sheen blamed on 2010 wreckage << Wreckage???

      Like a sunken coal barge, an old chevy . . . The headline doesn’t even say “BP”? We’d like to see the red pencil marks on that original copy"

    If you think about the meteorite that hit offshore of the yucatan peninsula, sixty five million years ago, it must of been a huge tidal wave that scoured clean multiple areas of the surrounding continents, washing multitudes of carbon based matter, into the gulf of mexico.
    Then think about cost cutting BP's knowledge on this, speculating and drooling over a bonanza of oil, overzealously injecting oil expanding bacteria, into one of the deepest, richest oil reserves in the western hemisphere, you quickly understand how the seafloor is cracked and leaking. You also understand that after the macondo blowout, they fed the very same bacteria with corexit, adding to the disaster and the pressure from below. It becomes very apparent that this video shows multiple locations where the oil is being shoved out from that pressure. Connecting the dots tells you that there is a very strong possibility that the sinkhole and the oil leakage in louisiana is connected to this event. Common sense tells you that this is not over by a long shot. Just like fukushima, this issue will be devastating to nature for generations. One ocean down, game over.

      markww, Since bubbles of Methane are literally popping up across the country, perhaps this will lessen the explosive force in bayou corne. I know that sounds simplistic but it's the best I have to offer at this juncture. What a mess, what a species.

    so, bp are paying the last payment on their part of the costs.. it was supposed to be 15 billion.. this money was going to be raised bu a deal that left bp out of the nasty PR situation in kazahkstan (see human rights watch and some info about the UN peace corp volunteers being raped etc and having to QUIETLY

    so, bp are paying the last payment on their part of the costs.. it was supposed to be 15 billion.. this money was going to be raised bu a deal that left bp out of the nasty PR situation in kazahkstan (see human rights watch and some info about the UN peace corp volunteers being raped etc and having to QUIETLY leave kazahkstan).. oops!

    of course kazhkstan makes stuff for depleted uranium weapons that are much needed in that geography…

    back to bp.. the other part of the deal is to acquire shares from the russian oil company that is looking to drill the arctic…. most lucrative.. and the final cap on liability for the oil companies is being discussed globaly… sure to be low!!

    BUT !! now the usa is asking for 18 billion (squeezing bp because they know?) and bps partners in kazahkstan TNKBP have decided to sell their share.. oops! leaving bp in kazahkstan

    TOTAL oil have come out and said that drilling in the arctic would be foolhardy.

    there are lots of nukes in the north.. buried under the sea.. and the russians want to encourage oil companies as long as they clean up the radioactive wastes/ reactors etc..

    dont forget the corporations have capped liability..
    so this isnt bps problem.. is it?
    and they have other problems.. :)

    by the way? how is tony blairs pettition for the kazahkstan dictator/warlord to get a nobel peace prize going..?
    you cant make this up!
    and obama (Nobel laureate) has started a new arms race!!
    ????

    FOLLOW THE MONEY!
    THE OIL AND NUCLEAR COMPANIES HAVE A SWING DOOR POLICY BETWEEN THE DIRECTORS ETC! so there is no difference in how they operate.. even if they appear to battle one another on the MSM!
