There is SO much going on right now, oil spills (controlled accidents IMHO), the effects of corexit being so like the Dengue fever, the American horrors being built up for yet more wars on several fronts, Israel and its sick agenda, France going after its lost African assets, need I go on? The list is endless.
I heard the comforting click of an answer lodging into my consciousness and understood what I previously knew, but had not seen ... sorta like being unable to see the forest for the trees.
TPTB are trying to weary us out completely with a tsunami of crises..Events and challenges of greater and greater danger are being thrown at us at faster rates. Remember that is part of it all. We just have to stay as sharp as we can, remember they play dirty and are beginning to pull out all the stops so we can only expect things to get much worse. May Jesus and God be with us, for we will need all the help we can get.
Just don't roll over and play dead or you will be in one of those plastic caskets of which America has millions. Stand up for the world, your family and stop taking it.
As for me, a little more sunshine and ocean time ~ even that is difficult because I feel so deeply what is being done to the lifeblood of our precious planet. However, that's my ticket to sanity for now because we do not know for how long even such basic things as fresh air and sunshine will be available to us. There is NOTHING which we can take for granted any longer, and now even the simplest things as these are blessings and gifts to appreciate, to give thanks for.

The combination of millions of gallons of oil and dispersants has made large areas of the Gulf toxic and dangerous, marine toxicologist Ricki Ott saying if she lived there with children she'd leave - based on her firsthand experience after the 1989 Prince William Sound, Alaska Exxon Valdez disaster and subsequent research, documented in her books titled, "Sound Truth and Corporate Myth$: The Legacy of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill" and "Not One Drop - Betrayal and Courage in the Wake of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill."
We may call them idiots, but the people at BP are not complete fools. This is not their first environmental disaster. If anything the corexit made things worse, far worse ~ and I believe they knew full well what they were up to in its heavy application.
According to TPTB who give themselves godlike powers over all life on earth, there exists a high concentration of "Useless eaters" along the Gulf Coast. Useless eaters, are non consumers, old people, the ill and the homeless, those ill equipped to thrive and grow in today's cut throat society.
Do not also forget the vast number of retirees in Florida. Culling of such groups leaves more money in the public purse, freed up for the vicious soul-sucking wars that are currently bleeding the nation dry as they are played out as well as those now in the works.
The EPA's safe level is 4 parts per billion (ppb), yet Gulf levels reach or top 3,000, smelled hundreds of miles away, meaning residents inhaling fumes are ingesting dangerous toxins, raising their risk for serious future health problems, some potentially lethal.
Oil cleanup workers hired by BP clean oily deposits from the shore in Orange Beach, Ala., Saturday, June 12, 2010. Almost two months after an oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, shortages of government-required protective gear and cleaning equipment are slowing work to remove the sticky mess and keep beaches along the coast safe and oil-free.

SAN ANTONIO ~ For weeks now, local hospitals have tracked patients with suspicious symptoms coming in from the gulf coast. Doctors are having trouble distinguishing it from the flu.
REPORT FROM RUSSIAN SCIENTISTS
~ Compounding the Disaster
According to the EPA:
Natural Gas Containing Methane
~ A Potentially Far Greater Threat
Natural gas contains from 75 ~ 90% methane. It's also a constituent of oil, about 40% of Macondo well emissions, compared to around 5% in other deposits, creating a potentially far greater disaster, including:
Warning signs include large seabed fissures, a rise in seafloor elevation, and "the massive venting of methane and other gases....All....occurring in the Gulf," the Macondo well its epicenter in which methane is pressurized at 100,000 pounds psi. Other fissures have also been spotted as distant as 30 miles from ground zero.
"The plant was a healthy young plant" grown to five feet, eight inches. After rain hit its leaves, they "crumpled and fell off on the ground," the tree left with "a huge burned brown spot and then there is this white stuff on the other leaves as well." The tree's flowers were also affected, left "sagging and falling off."
No wonder experts like Ricki Ott say Gulf hazards warrant evacuation, the alternative being long-term exposure to greater health and well-being risks than anyone should take.
