Florida Oil Spill.com just found video of what key players in the oil spill disaster are doing this beautiful weekend. We plan on going sailing before the oil hits the beaches in the Tampa Bay, Florida area.
Florida Oil Spill .com has listened to people talking about this disaster. Everyone that we know is extremely upset by the whole situation. We are especially saddened by the loss of the wetlands and all the lovely animals that live there (including humans). We are also disappointed that it seems that the oil industry hasn't been exploring this.
The first alternative I heard was the Nuclear Missile Option. Some of the problems I see with this are: the explosion will probably cause more oil in a larger more diverse set of holes and we would also be introducing nuclear contamination to the gulf stream.
One writer remembers how plumbers stopped the water at her home when the cut-off valve didn't seem to stop it. The plumbers froze the water line. She thought wow if they could freeze the oil they could easily put a new valve on it. It seems that freezing crude oil is very complicated. It makes sense though since she knows that cars and trucks run at freezing temperatures in Canada that oil must freeze at a pretty low temperature. It turns out also each deposit has its own properties. It would be nearly impossible to freeze it, though the depth and resulting increase in pressure might help. Just a thought.
According the Florida Attorney General, their office has asked for the Federal Government to waive provisions of the Jones Act. According to the State of Florida, the law is a "federal act hindering oil spill response efforts." The state's chief legal officer wrote a letter to the President and, according to sources with the State of Florida, the Jones Act "mandates that the transportation of material between U.S. points be reserved for U.S.-built, owned, and documented vessels. The [Florida State] Attorney General noted the Unified Area Command has treated compliance with the Jones Act as an operational requirement, mandating that the foreign equipment be transferred to U.S. ships, a very time-consuming process that is hindering immediate response."
Quoting the Attorney General's letter, “The limited use of foreign vessels to aid in the cleanup of the massive Deepwater Horizon oil spill will not likely impede U.S. trade and commerce. More importantly, vessels with advanced cleanup capabilities should not be turned away during our time of need.” Florida Oil Spill.com notes there is prior history in waiving of these provisions of Federal law. as part of the disaster response to Hurricane Katrina.
Florida Oil Spill | Around 2:15 am on June 10, 2010 we noticed what looks like fire underwater near the blow out preventer via the underwater feed we have been monitoring. The orange colored substance is visible under the top-center of the screen capture below, behind the text data on the top of the image. The orange pattern seems to move around in the frame.
Is it possible that the blowout is now on fire underwater? No, it is chemical dispersant being shot into the oil flow at the bottom of the sea. Out of sight - out of mind.
Is this an underwater fire? No, they are chemicals being shot into the oil flow.
Well, its now official, the oil has arrived in Florida, just as predicted, albeit a week later than scientists had calculated. In Tampa, scientists from the University of South Florida have made several trips from St. Petersburg, Florida's Bayboro Harbor in their research ship. Not surprisingly, the scientist's findings have been castigated by corporate shills, despite replication of their findings of underwater oil plumes by other independent researchers. Here is the latest video.
We have been online, one of the first sites devoted to the Disaster in the Gulf. Here is our new timeline that will be updated continuously. We expect many more people and sources to come forward and provide tips and information about what really happened in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico this year.
Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill Disaster from 1979 starring some of the same cast members of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon cast? Impossible - no, there was a 1979 oil rig disaster that leaked for over 6 months. The Florida coastline was threatened and they attempted and failed to stop the leak. The only difference - they were in 200 feet of water, not 5,000 feet.
Now that the Gulf Oil Disaster may have killed the Gulf of Mexico, the polluters are trying to kill the oil well that has been gushing for more that a month. The ROV Remotely Operated Vehicle Feed has been intermittent for reasons unknown to a Florida Oil Spill web technologist. Our feed keeps going away, so you can try here.
"Please be aware, this is a live stream and may freeze or be unavailable from time to time.
Throughout the extended top kill procedure – which may take up to two days to complete - very significant changes in the appearance of the flows at the seabed may be expected. These will not provide a reliable indicator of the overall progress, or success or failure, of the top kill operation as a whole. BP will report on the progress of the operation as appropriate and on its outcome when complete." May 29, 2010
