‘...man brought in destructive forces to be used by people that were rulers. These destructive forces combined with those natural resources of the gases, of the electrical forces made in nature, caused volcanic eruptions...we find in various portions of the world, even in the present day, some form of legend of these events referring to an ‘Eden’ of the world.’ (363-4) ~ Edgar CayceThanks to Dublin Mick for passing me this post. What I read it last night left me to suffer a restless night only to awaken three hours later, unable to sleep, alert and on the edge. I have remembered something from far back in the past and I am very troubled. Very troubled indeed. I cannot shake the mood.
All of my life I have considered Atlantis to have been a very real place. Instinctively, I have been aware that much of what has happened in the last few centuries have been repetitions but with our current technology. I will not go into detail, this following piece would never get posted, however, Atlantis blew twice.
‘...These periods when there was the application of much that is being discovered or rediscovered today, in application of power to modes of transit...’ (2562-1; 5/9/41) ~ Edgar CayceAs always, these earth-shaking events were the result of actions by the malfeasant, power-hungry unheeding soulless individuals who are among us again. With Atlantis, both earth-shaking disasters were the result of meddling with planetary balance as they kept drilling deeper into her.
The first was upheaval was pretty bad, erasing at least one entire continent and most of its inhabitants. For a few thousand years, the will of the surviving people prevailed and the scientific ones laid low. However their quest for domination over the other side of the globe led them to even deeper drilling and the planet responded once again.
This time Atlantis went under and we today hear "myths" in our religious tomes and from many native peoples of the great flood that resulted in so many changes.
I have always felt that fire would take us out when the hour arrived. I remember somewhere that each time the civilization (What a lie that term is in today's climate) was destroyed it would be by a different element. The recent spate of death dealing weapons used to fry or holocaust victims such as in Gaza, were mere portents of what is to come, I felt.
Oil floats and kills all beneath it. The thought of all that oil set alight is a true nightmare. of Biblical proportions. And what caused it? Once again, man's greed and need for dominance which requires fossil fuels to maintain his hideous desires. Once again, Earth has responded to his drilling. And once again, humanity faces a horror like no other.
Our beautiful planet has been sullied beyond repair with this horrid event and will never be the same. NEVER. Never is a very long long time.
We have suffered these greedy bastards long enough! I, for one, am angrier than I have been in a long time for their goddam meddling. As for my rambling about Atlantis, they know EXACTLY what I am talking about. They were there and these same souls are at it again. There are no words foul enough in my vocabulary for them, no words to express my loathing of these creatures.
Now here is the article Dublin Mick sent me.
September 5, 2006 ~ MASSIVE OIL FIELD FOUND UNDER GULF
With the best technology available to man, the Deepwater Horizon rig popped a hole into that reserve and was overwhelmed.
"Well, if you say the fire hose has a 70,000 psi pump on the other end, yes! No comparison here. The volume out rises geometrically with pressure. Its a squares function. Two times the pressure is 4 times the push. The Alaska pipeline is 4 feet in diameter and pushes with a lot less pressure. This situation in the Gulf of Mexico is stunning dangerous." ~ Paul Noel (May 2, 2010)
Well, this time they hit a pocket of oil at such high pressure that it burst all of their safety valves all the way up to the drilling rig and then caused the rig to explode and sink.
Take a moment to grasp the import of that. The pressure behind this oil is so high that it destroyed the maximum effort of human science to contain it.
The only piece of human technology that might address this is a nuclear bomb. I'm not kidding. If they put a nuke down there in the right spot it might seal up the hole. Nothing short of that will work. [See Paul Noel's ideas above.]
that oil is going to destroy
the oceans of the world.
It only takes one quart of motor oil
to make 250,000 gallons
of ocean water toxic to wildlife.
Are you starting to get the magnitude of this?
Unless God steps in and fixes this.
No human can.
You can be sure of that.
for Pure Energy Systems News
By yesterday morning, the nature of the crude had changed, indicating that the spill was collapsing the rock structures. How much I cannot say. If it is collapsing the rock structures, the least that can be said is that the rock is fragmenting and blowing up the tube with the oil.
With that going on you have a high pressure abrasive sand blaster working on the kinks in the pipe eroding it causing the very real risk of increasing the leaks.
More than that is the very real risk of causing the casing to become unstable and literally blowing it up the well bringing the hole to totally open condition.
As a result, the well, if this was not properly completed, could begin to blow outside the casing.
Another possible scenario is a sea floor collapse.
If that happens ~ Katie bar the door.
I do not see any good possibilities from humans further fracturing the rock particularly at higher levels. That is the cap rock that is holding the deposit together.
I do see a possible use of explosives for favorable outcome. If a properly sized charge were applied in a shaped fashion around the drill pipe at some distance from it ~ say 5 feet or so ~ it is entirely possible that an explosive charge could pinch the pipe off similar to a hydraulic clamp.
The resulting situation would vastly reduce the spill. Once you clamped off the pipe much more substantially say down to 1 foot or less opening the resulting pipe could be charge cut above the location and a tapered pipe fitted to it to collect any leaking oil.
The end result would be to contain the spill and dramatically control any leaks because drill mud could then be entered into the pipe fitted to the exterior. In the end, the pipe could be controlled that way. The size of a charge to do this would be a few pounds not megatons.
A nuclear detonation carries the real risk of giving us the full doomsday scenario on this well.
There is no coming back from the brink when you do that one.
If it works, which I see as unlikely, great.
If it doesn't work, there is now a maybe a hole 1/4 mile across leaking oil.
That looks worse than any possible outcomes otherwise.
Oil Deposit Capacity
The deposit is one I have known about since 1988. The deposit is very big. The central pressure in the deposit is 165 to 170 thousand PSI. It contains so much hydrocarbon that you simply cannot imagine it. In published reports, BP estimated a blow out could reach near 200,000 Barrels per day (165,000) They may have estimated a flow rate on a 5 foot pipe. The deposit is well able to surpass this.
The oil industry has knowledge of the deposit ~ more than they admit. The deposit is 100 miles off shore. They are drilling into the edge of the deposit to leak it down gently to be able to produce from the deposit.
The deposit is so large that, while I have never heard exact numbers, it was described to me to be either the largest or the second largest oil deposit ever found. It is mostly a natural gas deposit. That is another reason not to blast too willynilly there. The natural gas that could be released is really way beyond the oil in quantity. It is like 10,000 times the oil in the deposit.
It is this deposit that has me reminding people of what the Shell geologist told me about the deposit. This was the quote, "Energy shortage..., Hell! We are afraid of running out of air to burn."
The deposit is very large. It covers an area off shore something like 25,000 square miles. Natural Gas and Oil is leaking out of the deposit as far inland as Central Alabama and way over into Florida and even over to Louisiana almost as far as Texas. This is a really massive deposit. Punching holes in the deposit is a really scary event as we are now seeing.
The pipe is a fairly rigid pipe and sticks up out of the Blow out prevention device for some distance before it bends over and kinks off. The distance is not long but is enough to do what I suggested. Explosive forming of metals is a standard technology and under water it is easier. The charge focuses very predictably.
Imagine a long straw that is 1 mile long and has kinked over in several locations. This is about what you have. I have seen the submarine photos from early on. Just a really big straw. It has about a 1.5 or 2 foot diameter drill pipe in the center with about a 10 inch hole down the center. I am not exactly sure on the drill pipe size. The casing here is very thick steel. It has to handle massive pressures.
The rig is quite some distance away from the well. It may be a 1/4 mile or more away. It sort of bent over and then kinked the pipe as it went down.
"It's burning pretty good and there's no estimate on when the fire will be put out,"Coast Guard Senior Chief Petty Officer Mike O'Berry during rescue mission.
You just cannot imagine until you see these rigs how big they are. If you want to see one go to Mobile Bay. Gulf High Island 2 and other rigs in the area can be seen clearly for 90 miles from Pensacola Florida. The towers go up 1100 feet. You can take the ferry right between two rigs if you go from Fort Morgan to Dauphin Island. There is no comparison to these rig anywhere in the world. They are the biggest ever built bar none.
Controls That Should Have Been In Place
By the way, I am not against drilling it, I am just against doing so without proper controls.
The rig that was drilling was not a US Flagged rig. That means US Inspectors were not allowed on board the rig to inspect it. As a matter of National Security under the GATT the USA has a right to demand US Only in various technology. The USA should never allow a foreign flag vessel to drill for oil in the US Economic Zone (200 mile limit).
Acoustic automated shut of devices should be required.
I think US Federal Inspectors should have to be resident on and inspecting rigs like this 24/7.
I think that the drilling should be required to do some smaller holes that deliberately miss the main deposit that test the structure before main drilling operations happen.
Careful procedures should be in place to set up wells before they hit the main deposit. The well casing should have to be inserted well before the drill hits the deposit and it should have to be cemented in at least 2 weeks prior to finishing the hole down to the oil or gas. This is to give the cement time to set. The casing should have ridging to make this cement have a tight wedged grip on the miles of rock around it. This is required because the lift pressure on a pipe in this case could easily reach 20 million pounds of lift. This is an insane amount of up pressure. Even at 70,000 psi it would lift about 140 million pounds. (almost 64,000 long tons!)
This happened the last time (Sago and others) when the economic pressure started rising. The economic pressures on the energy prices are stunning. Everyone is trying to keep their economy going. You can measure the economic output of a nation directly with the energy consumption day to day.
The USA dropped its energy consumption in the current downturn (depression) by about 24%. It is now rising again. We are about 19% down and rising.
The current situation is that the developments in oil/gas and coal are not keeping pace with what is going to be the demand shortly. They cannot even hope to meet the demand.
They can push the pedal to the metal (figuratively speaking) and there is not going to be a speed up much.
Since human demand is going to force increases in supply towards 3 times the current level in less than 30 years, we are looking at a big hole with no hope of fixing it.
Air pollution world wide is reaching levels that are at the limits of the environment to take the demands. This increase in energy has to come from somewhere else.
Nuclear power doesn't have the potential. It turns out to run out of fuel in about 30 years. Worse yet solving the problem with nuclear doesn't do anything but boil away scarce fresh water supplies. All combustion does this.
The only solutions are ones where the energy comes from somewhere else.
Solar and Wind are good options.
As you are also aware, the hard core alternatives are there in magnetic power etc. This has to come.
The alternatives to drilling US Waters for oil if we solve this with oil are to depend more and more on hostile powers for oil.
Funding your enemies is insane.
Drilling in US waters risks ever increasing threats of what we have going on right now.
The collapse of rock structures is even more scary.
Mexico has one entire state that is being held up by nitrogen injection wells that would sink if that gas is released. This is not funny stuff. I know I get punched by the "know nothings" out there with political agenda, but I will risk it.
If you will note the Oil and Gas people pretty much don't say anything against me. They know.
I have been to some of their events and they actually like what I have to say. They cannot say it for fear of their jobs.
If one estimates the cost of a barrel of oil from the Middle East, the US Armed Forces cost added in would drive it to about $2000/barrel.
If people paid this at the pump they would be demanding what I say with force so high you couldn't hear anything else. If you factor in the cost of spills and such domestic oil probably costs $500/barrel or more.

What They're Doing (Follow-up)
- Picture becoming clearer on BP Deepwater Horizon incident - BP said on Sunday that the GSF Development Driller II will drill a second relief well on the Mississippi Canyon 252 block. GSF Development Driller III spudded the first relief well on May 2. Discoverer Enterprise, also on location will work on containment. Oil flows from the end of the riser, the end of the drill pipe and a crack in the riser. BP sheared off the drill pipe and will install a valve in the next one or two days. This will stop one of the three leaks. (Gerson Lehrman Group; May 3, 2010)
- BP spuds relief well - BP said it spud the first of two planned relief wells to intervene in the Macondo exploration well that is leaking an estimated 5000 barrels per day into the US Gulf. The effort is expected to take at between two and three months, Suttles confirmed. (Upstream Online; May 3, 2010)

- Leaked report: Government fears Deepwater Horizon well could become unchecked gusher 30 Apr 2010 'The following is not public' document ~ A confidential government report on the unfolding spill disaster in the Gulf makes clear the Coast Guard now fears the well could become an unchecked gusher shooting millions of gallons of oil per day into the Gulf.
"The following is not public," reads the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Emergency Response document dated April 28. "Two additional release points were found today in the tangled riser. If the riser pipe deteriorates further, the flow could become unchecked resulting in a release volume an order of magnitude higher than previously thought."

Contain the Upsurge: Free Oil
On May 3, 2010; 9:45 am, Raphial Morgado phoned and said:
It's going to take a long time to cap this at the source.
Don't worry about that now.
We need to figure out a way to turn a bad thing into good by harvesting the crude oil on the surface where it bubbles up.
We should focus all our efforts on containing it there.
Don't think of it as a clean up effort, think of it as a collecting effort.
Bring all the tankers needed to pump it up.
We can't allow this oil to float out into the wider sea.
Invite all willing parties to come and pump it up: "free oil".
