Toxic Effects of Crude Oil Spills

 

clip_image002

The Gulf oil spill is more than just a big mess, and a waste of fuel.

I have wondered how the Revelation horses of famine and death would manifest.

At first, I assumed drought and general illness. This is also possible.

But, if there is no clean water for animals and people, or they are breathing in toxins, then death will quickly come as well.

Anyhow, that is just a thought.

I assembled some general chemical information about the toxins in crude oil for you to read.

The crude oil spill is not just a big mess. It is also a danger to health.

This product  (crude oil) is not listed as a carcinogen.  However, Benzene and some PAHs are listed by the IARC, OSHA and NTP as carcinogens.

Summary of Chronic Hazards contained in crude oil:

This product contains Benzene, which is associated with various blood disorders, anemias, and leukemia in humans, and PAHs, which have been shown to produce skin tumors in laboratory animals after prolonged and repeated skin contact.  

The exact relationship between these results and possible human effects is not known. 

Personnel with pre-existing central nervous system disease, skin disorder, chronic respiratory disease, or impaired liver or kidney function should avoid exposures to this product. 

Benzene *     3458, 3159 a CARCINOGEN,  causes leukemia & other cancers; can cause aplastic anemia:  aplastic anemia is a failure of the blood-cell forming capacity of the bone marrow that affects all blood-cell types:  a reduction in all types of blood cells: red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets

Toxic compounds and seafood

Aromatic compounds in the dissolved fraction of oil are more dangerous to humans potentially because they are more soluble in water and can contaminate sealife and seafoods more readily than many other components in oil.

About 99% of these aromatic hydrocarbons are benzene, toluene, ethyl benzene, xylene (all 4 are termed the BTEX group); other substitued benzenes, and the 2- to 3- ringed PAHs (fluorene, naphthalene, dibenzothiophene, anthracene and various substitued analogues of these compounds).

Toxic compounds in drinking water and air

http://www.eco-usa.net/toxics/chemicals/benzene.shtml

If the fish get sick, so will we.

Benzene evaporates into air very quickly and dissolves slightly in water.

Benzene is highly flammable.

Most people can begin to smell benzene in air at 1.5-4.7 parts of benzene per million parts of air (ppm) and smell benzene in water at 2 ppm.

Most people can begin to taste benzene in water at 0.5-4.5 ppm.

One part per million is approximately equal to one drop in 40 gallons.

Benzene can pass into air from water and soil surfaces.

Once in the air, benzene reacts with other chemicals and breaks down within a few days.

Benzene in the air can also be deposited on the ground by rain or snow.


Benzene in water and soil breaks down more slowly.

Benzene is slightly soluble in water and can pass through the soil into underground water.

Benzene in the environment does not build up in plants or animals.

 

Metabolism

Benzene can enter your body through your lungs, gastrointestinal tract, and across your skin.

When you are exposed to high levels of benzene in air, about half of the benzene you breathe in passes through the lining of your lungs and enters your bloodstream.

When you are exposed to benzene in food or drink, most of the benzene you take in by mouth passes through the lining of your gastrointestinal tract and enters your bloodstream.

A small amount will enter your body by passing through your skin and into your bloodstream during skin contact with benzene or benzene-containing products.

Once in the bloodstream, benzene travels throughout your body and can be temporarily stored in the bone marrow and fat.

Benzene is converted to products, called metabolites, in the liver and bone marrow.

Some of the harmful effects of benzene exposure are caused by these metabolites.

Most of the metabolites of benzene leave the body in the urine within 48 hours after exposure.

Brief exposure (5-10 minutes) to very high levels of benzene in air (10,000-20,000 ppm) can result in death.

Lower levels (700-3,000 ppm) can cause drowsiness, dizziness, rapid heart rate, headaches, tremors, confusion, and unconsciousness.

In most cases, people will stop feeling these effects when they are no longer exposed and begin to breathe fresh air.

Eating foods or drinking liquids containing high levels of benzene can cause vomiting, irritation of the stomach, dizziness, sleepiness, convulsions, rapid heart rate, coma, and death.

Protection:

http://annhyg.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/content/short/50/2/123

It is possible to experience benzene exposure to crude oil. A way to avoid this is through protective equipment. However, the general pubic does not wear protective equipment.

What to do

If not contained, this spill could be carried by currents to other countries.

Avoid areas that are conspicuously contaminated.
I am not an expert, but I would suggest having stored, sealed, clean water on hand.

Also if you like seafood, check the origin of the seafood before you buy it, and then store and freeze it for later eating.

In the meantime, hopefully, this oil spill will be gotten under control, and there will be no harm to health.

  2. Another source …
    Specifically, marine toxicologist Ricki Ott writes:

    Local fishermen hired to work on BP’s uncontrolled oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico are scared and confused. Fishermen here and in other small communities dotting the southern marshes and swamplands of Barataria Bay are getting sick from the working on the cleanup, yet BP is assuring them they don’t need respirators or other special protection from the crude oil, strong hydrocarbon vapors, or chemical dispersants being sprayed in massive quantities on the oil slick.

    Fishermen have never seen the results from the air-quality monitoring patches some of them wear on their rain gear when they are out booming and skimming the giant oil slick. However, more and more fishermen are suffering from bad headaches, burning eyes, persistent coughs, sore throats, stuffy sinuses, nausea, and dizziness. They are starting to suspect that BP is not telling them the truth.

    And based on air monitoring conducted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in a Louisiana coastal community, those workers seem to be correct. The EPA findings show that airborne levels of toxic chemicals like hydrogen sulfide, and volatile organic compounds like benzene, for instance, now far exceed safety standards for human exposure.

  3. You are welcome marianne … There is another side of the story ….

    • interesting…they already knew which states to set aside for refugees…..central colorado….central illinois…..east minnesota….north central ohio…….west wisconsin…and upstate new york…

      tectonic plate shifts…….about 9:10 – 9:15 minutes

  4. Working harder this sabbath than all week …
    But this extremely important!

  5. And NOW they are talking of this …
    Officials are considering some drastic and risky solutions: They could set the wetlands on fire or flood areas in hopes of floating out the oil.
    Exactly what I feared the most.

  6. Here is a prophecy for you. The seas (oceans) will turn black.

  7. The ocean floor has already been rising by Australia and actually was rising prior to the blowout. We need to think here! This far surpasses politics!
    Although there is I am sure a lot to be said about misguided greedy political decisions …
    Let us start thinking with the help of God as to the possible scenarios.
    The atmosphere also is in danger! Portable water is also in danger!
    The very crust of the earth is in danger! ETC>>>

    • He mentioned it would take about 18 months for all this to happen.

      That would put us into 2011, when I anticipate, as a non expert, the tribulation to start, or become obvious.

      Maybe, I am just thinking, the white horse has gone out, the red horse may be the war on terrorism, or war against America, then a disaster that would kill people or poison food and water would produce famine and death.

      And I am thinking of those who refuse to consider any of this, and ignore God in their lives.

      • I think the white horse has passed us by …
        I think the 18 mths. are calculations which does not take into account other scenarios such, as hurricane season … the burning of oil and its effects!!,
        the top kill going wrong and explosion…. etc.
        Hard to measure something like this.

    • The above film was taken May/19/2010
      SouthWings pilot Tom Hutchings and his daughter Brinkley accompany Hurricane Creekkeeper to the source then back over the Louisiana Southern coast where we found what appeared to be heavy crude washed up on the beaches and in the marshes.

  8. Now I don’t know if this will help … considering the magnitude of this disaster and considering that BP are working on this but … for your own considerations …

  9. Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj, has already said that the first three seals are broken and recently prophesied that wild beasts will come into the cities and attack people as per Rev 6:8. It’s happening in Tamil Nadu. So I think the fourth seal is also broken. Fifth seal, I think will release the Anti Christ and christians will be persecuted and killed and sixth seal will result in rapture, second coming and the millenium. We really are living in the end of end times.

    Look at this article


    So much of the Scripture is disregarded these days, and one verse we should be paying attention to is Revelation 6:8, which reads as follows: “And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.” Thus, in the last days, it appears that many of the animals will move into populated areas and prey upon the horrified and faithless people. On February 9th, the New York Post reported that numerous coyotes have been sighted in Manhattan. They have been sighted in Central Park and on the campus of Columbia University. (31) In New Smyrna Beach, Florida, bobcats have been sighted in residential areas, and many people are quite alarmed about it. (32) It appears that the wild beasts of the forests are moving closer to, and even into, the cities, even the large cities.

    http://lasttrumpetnewsletter.org/2010/03_10.html

    • A good read..that is incredible regarding the coyotes and bobcats? roaming around manhattan of all places!

  10. Marianne, I believe you are right, this is like a judgement written in the book of Revelations, I had thought that myself already, when the spill continued. AND, it will continue to kill animal life.

  11. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ynews/20100524/sc_ynews/ynews_sc2199

  12. I just saw those terrible pictures, Marianne, how terribly sad. It makes me so sad that gods creatures are suffering so awfully, God must be grieved over America.

    Sadder even worse, is the holocaust of over 40 million babies.

    Someone told me (A really super sweet Jewish man) that America worships oil, and we were given it with both barrels with the Gulf disaster 😦

  13. Now it could explode.

  14. The Norwegians have problems with an oil/gas …
    Today is the 40th. day of the oil volcano in the Gulf.
    And I thought i’d sadly present this.

  15. On the eve of Hurricane Season now and it will be raining oil and probably all the way up the east coast even into Canada and the great lakes.

  16. A note here … oil on land in the forests, in the cities will be highly flammable.

  17. People keep playing the ‘blame game’ it is time to call for the aid of Heaven.
    II Chron 7:14

  18. The bible says 1/3 of the seas will turn into “blood.” I wonder if it was referring to this.

    • I was thinking the same thing!

    • Marianne,

      I thought about the 3 shofars that were heard by you, Susie and the other person in California….The Seven Trumpets: When the first trumpet is sounded in Revelation 8:7, hail, fire and blood fall upon the Earth, and a third of its surface, along with a third of its trees and all of its grass, is consumed in flame.

      Upon the sounding of the second, a great, flaming mountain falls into the sea. A third of the oceans turn to blood, a third of the sea creatures are killed and a third of the ships are destroyed. (there can be no denying that this could very well be the Gulf Oil Spill that John, Author of Revelations, is describing from his vision….he would have never seen an “oil platform” so he described it as best as he could..)
      http://www.examiner.com/x-11224-Baltimore-Weather-Examiner~y2010m4d23-Oil-Rig-Explosion-Environmental-disaster-pending-as-Deepwater-Horizon-sinks-video

      With the third, the star Wormwood falls upon a third of the rivers and springs, poisoning them and the many men who drink from them.

      With the fourth trumpet, a third of the Sun, Moon and stars darken, leaving a third of the day in darkness.(July 11 we have a partial eclipse).

      After these four trumpets an angel flies through Heaven warning everybody that the worst is about to come. The fifth trumpet calls down a star from the heavens, which opens the Abyss, darkening the sky with its fumes and unleashing a swarm of scorpion-like locusts. The locusts are commanded not to pursue plant life of any kind, “but only those men which have not the seal of God on their foreheads,” and to torment them for five months as though they had been struck by scorpions, but without death. They had the form of warhorses, with golden crowns, men’s faces, women’s hair, lions’ teeth, iron breastplates, wings and scorpions’ tails. They are led by a king, named Abaddon. Whether they are demonic or angelic is unclear.

      The sixth angel Revelation 9:13-18 releases the four angels who had been bound to the Euphrates ready to lead an army of 200 million horsemen (China) slay one third of mankind.

      • Have you seen the rat at his feet?

        • Abigail; YES! I saw that rat, and the fly, remember that? I believe these are all signs, a rat out of no place? Flies hover over drek. “The Lord of the Flies” = SATAN.

          • 🙂

            • Abigail, I must say that I am in agreement with your strong stance on people that are rejecting the Holy One. We are in a time of apostasy and people that are reprobate. If they really show zero interest in Yeshua, then its time to move on.
              Repent is the word right now for people that are SO hard 😦

              • The rejection of Christ is to their detriment.
                Repent is only for those who have some knowledge that they have rejected Him.
                For the rest of the field, they are tares …
                That is their nature!

                Some are still in their play pen. 🙂

  21. Government involvement? Just like they took over the auto industry, (calling it a disaster) Then, the so called housing bubble, they regulated the stock market and went after the insurance industry, and healthcare. The oil will continue to run so they can call it a disaster, then step in with regulation. We are offically Socialist. Believe me, “THEY LET IT HAPPEN!”

  22. Toxic Oil Spill Rains Warned Could Destroy North America

    http://www.eutimes.net/2010/05/toxic-oil-spill-rains-warned-could-destroy-north-america/

    There are reports that they were outside when it began raining and had to run inside because the rain was burning their skin. They also had the same plant damage and dead birds.

    These same types of reports are coming in from many different locations in Mississippi and Tennessee.

    A greater danger involving Corexit 9500, and as outlined by Russian scientists in this report, is that with its 2.61ppm toxicity level, and when combined with the heating Gulf of Mexico waters, its molecules will be able to “phase transition” from their present liquid to a gaseous state allowing them to be absorbed into clouds and allowing their release as “toxic rain” upon all of Eastern North America.

  33. Here is a link to todays news … it is a tad disturbing.
    http://beforeitsnews.com/news/78/024/Gulf_Coast_Evacuation_Scenario_Summer_Fall_2010_Martial_Law_Alert.html

  34. SoCal Martial Law Alerts (SCMLA) has been in existence for a year and a half and
    this is our first MARTIAL LAW ALERT.

    We have withheld putting out information on the Gulf oil spill for a variety of reasons, but there is now enough evidence for us to put together a fairly clear picture of what really happened, what may result and to warn people who live in the area.

    THE SITUATION:

    Due to toxic gases from the fractured oil well in the Gulf of Mexico, the possible off-gassing of the highly-toxic Corexit 9500 (the chemical dispersant used by BP in the oil spill clean-up), acid rain and various as-yet-unknown forms of environmental damage, we believe that the government will have no choice but to relocate millions of people away from the Gulf Coast. Those living in Florida are presently at the highest risk, but the danger also appears likely to spread to all Gulf Coast states east of Louisiana and possibly even to the entire Eastern half of the United States once hurricane season begins.

    Greg Evensen, a retired Kansas Highway Patrolman, estimates that 30-40 million people would need to be evacuated away from the Gulf’s coastline (i.e. at least 200 miles inland). In order to accomplish this gargantuan feat, the federal government (through FEMA and other agencies) would most likely seek first to control and manage the transportation system and then operate relocation centers to manage evacuees. Toward this end, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has already declared the airspace over the oil spill site to be a no-fly zone until further notice. Various sources have indicated that local police, highway patrol, National Guard, US military and foreign troops may be involved in an operation to evacuate the Gulf Coast. In fact, the Governor of Louisiana has already requested evacuation assistance (i.e. National Guard) for his state from the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

    Those living inland may also be at risk, since the movement of vast numbers of evacuees would cause a significant strain on local resources. In other words, inlanders should not expect life to continue “as normal,” since, under a martial law scenario, the government would have the power and the motivation to seize everyday necessities, such as: food, water, fuel, housing, etc. Some have also suggested that if a hurricane were to occur over the oil spill area itself, lightning might possibly ignite volatile organic compounds, not to mention the acid rain clouds that could form and be carried inland (i.e. acid rain could pollute the water table, destroy crops, kill wildlife and pose significant health risks to humans in the southern and eastern states.)

    Lastly, Lindsay Williams, a former Alaskan pipeline chaplain with high-level oil industry connections, has suggested that BP, in conjunction with the federal government, might try to cap the well by using a nuclear explosion – the environmental consequences of which are currently unknown.

    OUR RECOMMENDATION:

    If you live, or if you know people who live on, or within 200 miles of the Gulf Coast area, we recommend that they immediately relocate to at least 200 miles inland (i.e. the farther away, the better). If people living within this 200-mile zone do not relocate voluntarily (i.e. on their own initiative), it appears likely that a forced evacuation through a martial-law scenario may occur within the coming weeks and (possibly) months.

    Our country has been in a state of national emergency since September 11, 2001, which means that martial law (i.e. military rule) can be declared by the President at any time, for any reason – large, or small. If martial law is implemented, evacuees will lose their ability to determine when and where they will move and for how long, since the normal protections of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights will have been suspended. To put it bluntly, a scenario in which evacuees are forced to live in relocation centers for an unspecified length of time is not unlikely.

  35. Evidence Points to BP Oil Spill False FlagHalliburton link, BP is Bilderber, Dumping of Stocks & Shares
    Evidence Points To BP Oil Spill False Flag

    – Sales of shares and stocks in days and weeks beforehand

    – Halliburton link, acquisition of cleanup company days before explosion

    – BP report cites undocumented tampering with well sealing equipment

    – Government uses disaster to push for Carbon Tax, Nationalization talk

    Troubling evidence surrounding the Deepwater Horizon explosion on April 20th suggests that the incident could have been manufactured.

    On April 12th, just over one week before the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded, Halliburton, the world’s second largest oilfield services corporation, surprised some by acquiring Boots & Coots, a relatively small but vastly experienced oil well control company.

    The company deals with fires and blowouts on oil rigs and oil wells. It was responsible for putting out roughly one third of the more than 700 oil well fires set in Kuwait by retreating Iraqi soldiers during the Gulf War.

    The deal itself is still under scrutiny with Boots and Coots facing an ongoing investigation [1] into “possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law”

    Where this information gets really interesting is with the fact that Halliburton is named in the majority of some two dozen lawsuits [2] filed since the explosion by Gulf Coast people and businesses who claim that the company is to blame for the disaster.

    Halliburton was forced to admit in testimony at a congressional hearing last month that it carried out a cementing operation 20 hours before the Gulf of Mexico rig went up in flames. The lawsuits claim that four Halliburton workers stationed on the rig improperly capped the well.

    As the New York Times [3] noted on May 26th, “BP officials chose, partly for financial reasons, to use a type of casing for the well that the company knew was the riskier of two options,”

    Workers from the rig and company officials have said that hours before the explosion, gases were leaking through the cement, which had been set in place by the oil services contractor, Halliburton. Investigators have said these leaks were the likely cause of the explosion.”

    According to a 2007 study by Minerals Management Service, cementing was a factor in 18 of 39 rig blowouts in the gulf between 1992 and 2006.

    Another intriguing connection Boots and Coots has to the Deepwater Horizon explosion comes via Pat Campbell [4], the man BP has employed to cap the well beneath the ruined rig. Campbell worked for Boots and Coots as general manager for many years.

    BP has admitted to buying Yahoo and Google keywords [5] in an attempt to control publicly available information in the wake of the catastrophe. It seems that the company is taking all the flack for the spill while the Halliburton link is being roundly ignored.

    BP’s prepared testimony briefing [6], which has since leaked online, also intriguingly notes that the Hydraulic Control System on equipment designed to automatically seal the well in an emergency was modified without their knowledge sometime before the explosion.

    “the extent of these modifications is unknown at this time” states the report on page 37.

    Possible prior knowledge of the explosion is also evident via huge dumping of stocks and shares in the weeks and days prior to the incident.

    Goldman Sachs dumped 44% of its shares in BP Oil [9]during the first quarter – shares that subsequently lost 36 percent of their value, equating to $96 million.

    Other asset management firms also sold huge blocks of BP stock in the first quarter. Though the amounts pale in comparison to Goldman’s holdings, Wachovia, owned by Wells Fargo, sold 98% of its shares in BP and Swiss bank UBS sold 97% of its BP shares.

    Furthermore, as reported by the London Telegraph [10] on June 5th, Tony Hayward, the chief executive of BP, sold £1.4 million of his shares in the fuel giant weeks before the spill.

    In the days before the Deepwater explosion, Obama had announced a new effort to explore for and lease new drilling locations in the deep Gulf and in Alaska. In the wake of the disaster, these plans have been cancelled [11] and BP is taking a PR bashing.

    All of which has been capitalized on by the Obama administration to reinvigorate talk of a carbon tax [12] and has created the opportunity to reintroduce the idea of nationalizing oil [13], which the Democratic leadership has long sought [14].

    The full story of what is happening in the Gulf of Mexico is yet to emerge, there are rumours of more spills and an ongoing coverup [15]. The site represents a $2.2 trillion source of wealth and power, a motive along with a plethora of suspicious activity that needs to be investigated further.

  36. I want to post some humor here to lighten up the mood. God’s got all of this under control. He’s in charge. He’s running the show. He knows the final act. Sit back enjoy the cartoon.

  37. It is possible that the recent earthquake in Haiti created a weakening of the general area.

    Haiti sits on top of a geological fault. There could have been damage under water…..

    when this recent oil disaster occurred, it could have accelerated the outflow of oil from other damaged areas.

    See this map….there was a 5.2 earthquake in 2006 – right where the BP was drilling. Surely, there must have been some damage to the area, and this should have been considered before drilling there.



  38. This must be what is going to happen, Marianne. I just saw this vid myself and posted it, asking all people of all faiths in America to pray to GOD now, I think this thing could explode, I pray NOT, but MY GOD.
    My God have mercy.

  39. Henning Kemner video: no crude coming out of
    BP “spill” – THIS IS WHAT THEY DON’T WANT US TO SEE

    Just got this from a friend. A lot of people have wondered why the half hearted attempts to either salvage or contain the crude oil in the gulf? Why no effort to use microbe technology to mitigate the damage? Is it because there is very little crude oil to be found in this disaster? Is it because crude oil IS NOT THE PROBLEM? I have been troubled by the fact that there is a lot of white (steam?) yellow (sulphur?) and red (iron ore?) in the plumes coming up from the sea floor. Maybe Mr. Kemner is right. There is very little oil because these malicious fools have pierced the magma level of the earth and created a volcano. That would also account for the high concentration of toxic gases such as hydrogen sulphide. Other evidence to support this conclusion is found in the high pressure at the well head. Typically an artesian well would show about 1000 to 1500 psi. But according to numerous experts and as confirmed by Reverend Lindsey Williams this well head pressure is at least 20,000 psi and may be as high as 70,000 psi.

    If Mr. Kemner is correct we can expect famine worldwide. This is not just an American/British problem. This is a global catastrophe…..

  40. The missing men of Deepwater Horizon oil rig
    April 30, 2010

    Eleven men were missing presumed dead after the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded last week.
    Dale Burkeen, 37, was a crane operator on the platform and was trained to lower crew members to boats in an emergency. He had returned to the rig from Neshoba, near Philadelphia, about a week before the explosion. He and wife, Rhonda, have two children, Aryn, 14 and Timothy, 6. Donald Clark, 49, of Newellton, Louisiana, was expected to leave the rig the day after the explosion for a three-week break. He was an assistant driller. Roy Wyatt Kemp, 27, has two children, Kaylee, 3, and 3-month-old Maddison, with his wife, Courtney.

    He loved fishing and the outdoors and attended a Baptist church in Jonesville, Louisiana, where a memorial service for him will be held today.
    Jason Anderson, was a father of two from Bay City, Texas.
    Stephen Curtis was an assistant driller on the rig from Georgetown, Louisiana.
    Gordon Jones, 28, of Louisiana, was expecting to become a father to a second son with his wife, Michelle. Karl Kleppinger, 38, of Natchez, Mississippi was a Desert Storm veteran who spent more than ten years working on oil rigs. He was a floorman who made about $75,000 a year working off the Louisiana coast. Blair Manuel, 56, resident of Gonzales, Louisiana, was a chemical engineer on the rig. Dewey Revette, 48, from State Line, Mississippi, was a father who had worked for the company as an oil driller for 29 years. Shane Roshto, 22, was from Franklin County, Mississippi. His family were named on law suits filed by Louisiana’s fisheries industry, accusing BP and Transocean, the rig operator, of negligence. Adam Weise, 24, of Yorktown, Texas, came straight from high School to work on the rig in 2005. He loved to hunt and fish and play football. He was the youngest of four children.

    Was this disaster just an accident, or were other more sinister forces at play in order to further cripple society toward a more manageable population size? BP’s “live” feed caught in an obvious short loop shows further evidence of cover-up.

  42. Oil Spill Latest
    Flames At The Well Head
    Is it going to blow?
    http://www.buycontacthasbegun.com/oil-spill-latest.html
    Oil Volcano Pressure Too
    Strong For Containment
    Dr. James P. Wickstrom
    6-9-10

    It has been estimated by experts that the pressure which blows the oil into the Gulf waters is estimated to be between 20,000 and 70,000 PSI (pounds per square inch). Impossible to control.

    What US Scientists Are Forbidden To Tell The Public About The Gulf

    What you are about to read, is what the scientists in the United States are not allowed to tell you in great fear of the Obama administration.

    They are under the threat of severe repercussions to the max.. Scientists confirming these findings cannot be named due to the above, but what they believe, they want to be known by all.

    Take a U. S. map, lay it flat and measure inland just the minimum 50 miles of total destruction all around the Gulf of Mexico as to what you will read below.

    The carnage to the United States is so staggering, it will take your breathe away.

    Should what the scientists who are trying to warn everyone about be even close to being true… all of Florida will be completely destroyed as will everyone and everything on it.

    You decide!! Everyone has the right to read what I have just written in this article, as well as to what is written below by the scientists who the Obama administration and BP are trying to shut up.

    Please share with as many as you can.

    –Dr. James P. Wickstrom

    SUMMARY OF WHAT IS HAPPENING

    The estimated super high pressure release of oil from under the earth’s crust is between 80,000 to 100,000 barrels per day.

    The flow of oil and toxic gases is bringing up with it… rocks and sand which causes the flow to create a sandblasting effect on the remaining well head device currently somewhat restricting the flow, as well as the drilled hole itself.

    As the well head becomes worn it enlarges the passageway allowing an ever-increasing flow. Even if some device could be placed onto the existing wellhead, it would not be able to shut off the flow, because what remains of the existing wellhead would not be able to contain the pressure.

    The well head piping is originally about 2 inches thick. It is now likely to be less than 1 inch thick, and thinning by each passing moment. The oil has now reached the Gulf Stream and is entering the Oceanic current which is at least four times stronger than the current in the Gulf, which will carry it throughout the world within 18 months.

    The oil along with the gasses, including benzene and many other toxins, is deleting the oxygen in the water. This is killing all life in the ocean. Along with the oil along the shores, there will be many dead fish, etc. that will have to be gathered and disposed of.

    SUMMARY OF EXPECTATIONS

    At some point the drilled hole in the earth will enlarge itself beneath the wellhead to weaken the area the wellhead rests upon. The intense pressure will then push the wellhead off the hole allowing a direct unrestricted flow of oil, etc.

    The hole will continue to increase in size allowing more and more oil to rise into the Gulf. After several billion barrels of oil have been released, the pressure within the massive cavity five miles beneath the ocean floor will begin to normalize.

    This will allow the water, under the intense pressure at 1 mile deep, to be forced into the hole and the cavity where the oil was. The temperature at that depth is near 400 degrees, possibly more.

    The water will be vaporized and turned into steam, creating an enormous amount of force, lifting the Gulf floor. It is difficult to know how much water will go down to the core and therefore, its not possible to fully calculate the rise of the floor.

    The tsunami wave this will create will be anywhere from 20 to 80 feet high, possibly more. Then the floor will fall into the now vacant chamber. This is how nature will seal the hole.

    Depending on the height of the tsunami, the ocean debris, oil, and existing structures that will be washed away on shore and inland, will leave the area from 50 to 200 miles inland devoid of life. Even if the debris is cleaned up, the contaminants that will be in the ground and water supply will prohibit re-population of these areas for an unknown number of years.

  43. A civil engineer took the flow rate and the psi pressure coming out of just the one hole…..and calculated the volume of oil actually being released, but not reported….

    his result: billions of gallons of oil/ day

    • The hand of God has struct the statue of Daniel representing the values of this world at its feet!
      Glory be to GOD in the Highest!

    • Obama may use it but GOD did it!!

    • They killed for oil and God in His wisdom gave them oil to drink.
      Consider this !
      How do you think BP is feeling seeing all of this oil escaping their bank account?
      They scrambled to try to save a few gallons of this black gold.
      All the while the coasts are dying and sea life have given their spring eggs to death …
      But tell me did BP cry over that?
      No ! They hurried just for one reason and one reason only and that is save a few gallons of this black death!
      I will give Glory and Thanks to My GOD as long as I live for bringing justice!

      This oil is the blood of the earth heammorhaging … the blood of Adam being spilled …
      While they were planning … with greed … to fill their pockets …
      God decided!

  44. People’s comments are true about God’s judgments, but we have to remember there are innocent Christians down there, who did not bring this about. We must be ready and willing to help anyone who has to move.

    • Become a nomad people.
      Like Abraham who searched for a country not his own.
      There is a city which awaits us … glimmering with the righteousness of God.
      God has not judged … the Hand of God has struck.
      The systems of the world are for evils.
      Trust in Him to carry you through.
      And yes ! as always be good to your neighbours!
      Lest a worst thing happens to you!
      Do good while it is in your hand to do so!

      We have entered a path which leads out of this world.
      The justice of God is just!
      Trust Him!

  45. Obama tries to (cap and) trade on the oil spill
    6:00 am June 15, 2010, by Kyle Wingfield

    After eight weeks, President Obama has decided he needs to stop letting our crisis in the Gulf of Mexico go unexploited. In an Oval Office address tonight, he’ll explain why, as he recently told Politico’s Roger Simon, the spill should “shape how we think about the environment and energy for many years to come” — just as our perspective on foreign affairs was “profoundly … indelibly” changed by 9/11.

    Oh, so within eight years our government will be studiously avoiding the word “oil” and referring to “pipeline-caused disasters”? Maybe a future president will make speeches about how oil barons helped pave the way for the European Renaissance.

    Nah, probably not.

    Obama reportedly hopes the spill will reinvigorate efforts in Congress to pass a cap-and-tax bill. The Gulf oil spill is a tragedy, but it doesn’t change the basic calculus about cap-and-tax — namely that, among other things, it:

    1. reduces, not increases, employment by giving companies an incentive to move production to countries without caps on carbon dioxide emissions;

    2. represents an enormous opportunity for politicians to game the system by favoring certain industries over others (and certain firms over their competitors — would Toyota really get the same terms as Government, er, General Motors?) in the allowances granted and the initial prices charged for those allowances; and

    3. has worked poorly where it’s been tried (for carbon dioxide) so far, most notably in Europe.

    Those things were true last summer, when the cap-and-tax bill passed by the House was considered dead on arrival in the Senate. They’re still true now.

  49. Think of Mount St. Helens …
    We have a methane bubble …

  50. This is SOOOOO dangerous!!
    Please take this very seriously!

    • Very true. We have a monster threat lurking under the sea, and another monster threat lurking in the White House. It will be a miracle if America comes out of this in one piece.

      • And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
        And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.

        The mountain burning … may well be the rig!

      • Consider this …
        If the methane is in a liquid or a solid state then it maybe worse than is suggested by this article and to make matters worse is the pore size of the rock. If it is large or greater than the size of a marble or a small fruit then It may collapse once the gas begins to vents at a high rate. Think of it as a caldera which is what it is but with a more volatile problems.

        • hi abigail

          Methane is CH4. It will always be in gas form.

          • Not true Marianne …
            Methane clathrate, also called methane hydrate, methane ice or “fire ice” is a solid clathrate compound (more specifically, a clathrate hydrate) in which a large amount of methane is trapped within a crystal structure of water, forming a solid similar to ice.[1] Originally thought to occur only in the outer regions of the Solar System where temperatures are low and water ice is common, significant deposits of methane clathrate have been found under sediments on the ocean floors of Earth.

            • hi abigail

              Wouldn’t this be depth dependent? The deeper they drill, the more likely it would be in gaseous phase, where it is hotter, and the closer to the sediment/water interface, the more clathrate is formed where it is cooler?

              • B.P. apparently was warned about methane pockets/cavities/reservoirs in the gulf of Mexico.
                So they were aware of this prior to drilling. they either chose not to believe it or they chose to ignore it or they chose to master it …
                Hard to tell …
                In an article released by the University of Illinois we read a disturbing statement …
                copy and paste
                Combustion and explosion of 0.75 􏰂 1019 g of methane would liberate energy equivalent to 108 Mt of TNT, 􏰅10,000 times greater than the world’s stockpile of nuclear weapons …

  55. Some speculations that the conspiracy nuts have been doing about the purpose of that attack:

    1 – To push Barack Obama to use nuke bombs to fix the oil leaking. It seems that the Illuminati are attempting to discredit him, after the Nobel prize and his leadership to eradicate nuke weapons. Just curious that the Russian government was the first to suggest a nuke blast in the gulf…

    2 – To give the US government a motivation to plan an invasion in the South American nations that produce petroleum, as Venezuela and Brazil. Remember that in the movie “Avatar”, there’s a scene where Jake Sully and Col. Quaritch are talking about some war in Venezuela…

    3 – To blame Iran and give the US government the argument to start its war against Ahmadinejad.

    4 – To blame North-Korea and the same about Kim Jon Il.

    5 – To divert the attention of the sheeple to some real badass movement they are planning in somewhere.

    But a detail that nobody seems to have noticed is that the blast of the oil rig could have combined a massive life sacrifice, once that area is (was) so rich in wild life and another sinister detail I’ve noticed is that the Gulf of Mexico is exactly in front of Tiahuanaco, the ancient Aztec city where’s placed the stunning pyramid of Kukulkan aka Quetzalcoatl, that Zecharia Sitchin has identified as the Anunnaki alien NINGISHZIDDA aka Toth, the builder of Giza pyramids and the face of the sphynx. Some people have been claiming that something is reactivating the pyramid and it makes me think if that beam of light photographed by the Siliezar family, was a hoax or an authentic shot. Just my two cents, the sacrifice of the wild life in that area of the oil spill, in front of the Kukulkan pyramid, was NOT a coincidence.

    Is oil catastrophe fulfillment of Genesis prophecy?
    Video suggests biblical tie with U.S. treatment of Israel, rig explosion
    Posted: June 23, 2010
    9:47 pm Eastern

    By Joe Kovacs
    © 2010 WorldNetDaily

    Is there a spiritual, biblical connection to the BP oil catastrophe?

    A new video on YouTube is suggesting a possible link to the disaster due to America’s recent treatment of Israel, and at least one well-known Bible analyst, Hal Lindsey, thinks there’s a valid correlation.

    The video was produced and posted today by Carl Gallups of the Hickory Hammock Baptist Church in Milton, Fla., and is embedded here:
    “April the 19th, Israel celebrates its independence in 2010,” Gallups says in narration on the video. “On April the 19th, Fox News reports that the U.S. will no longer automatically support Israel in the United Nations. The next day, on April the 20th, the Deepwater Horizon oil rig explodes. Coincidence? Or the hand and judgment of God?”

    The minister cites an ancient promise God made to Abraham, the patriarch of the 12 tribes of Israel, one tribe of which is Judah, from which the Jews derive their name.

    In the Book of Genesis, God told him, “I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse … .” (Genesis 12:2-3, New International Version)

    The ancient warning of catastrophes has begun! Get the book that documents disasters tied to the forsaking of Israel

    The video displays a screenshot of a Fox News story titled, “Obama and Israel: Showdown at the U.N.?”

    Its first sentence reads: “The Obama administration is reportedly signaling another major shift in policy towards one of its staunchest allies, Israel, and this shift could change the way it votes at the Security Council. The change would mean an end to the U.S.’ use of its veto power in the United Nations Security Council when certain anti-Israel resolutions are introduced for a vote. ”

    Gallups says while he was preparing his radio show, he wondered what else happened in the time frame of the rig explosion, to see if there was any connection to anything biblical at all.

    He found the Fox News article dated April 19, and said what’s significant about the date is that it’s Israel’s Independence Day this year.

    Although Israel’s original declaration took place May 14, 1948, the annual celebration actually floats from year to year in Israel, based on the lunar-based Hebrew calendar, and took place on April 19, 2010.

    Upon realizing the date connection, “I looked at that and chills went up and down my spine,” he told WND. “That’s when I knew there was a correlation. To me, I just immediately felt a spiritual connection to it. If you have a spiritual perception at all, it really hits you hard.”

    Are all these major events just a coincidence or awe-inspiring signs that God is actively involved with Israel?

    Referring to Israel as a “prophetic signpost,” Gallups said, “It seems to me we’re turning our back on Israel, and that’s a very dangerous biblical or spiritual place to be.”

    Gallups is not alone with the sentiment America could be under a curse from God.

    “I believe this is evidence that when you turn your back on Israel, especially when you’ve been a supporter, you’re gonna see judgments come from God,” said Hal Lindsey, author of “The Late Great Planet Earth.”

    “It’s finally reaching the point where God is removing His protection from us,” he said. “I believe we back away from being a friend to Israel at our peril. We need to come back to be a supporter of one who is so important in God’s plan.”

    Regarding the oil spill specifically, Lindsey said, “I think that this disaster is just one of many disasters. Our country is falling apart economically. The current government is overturning our constitutional republic, turning it into a socialist country. That’s about as big a curse as you can get. We just have one catastrophe after another and then we have this big wake-up call in the Gulf.”

    Lindsey, who at age 80 is still active analyzing Bible prophecy on his website, said in preparation for his programs, he studies current world events, taking note of calamities.

    “It used to be you’d have to hunt for things, but now it’s a matter of sorting out which one you’re gonna use. There are just so many catastrophes and disasters,” he said. “That’s not a popular view to take, by the way, as critics will say, ‘There they go again.’ No one wants to address true judgment from God.”

    WND asked Lindsey if he thought we’re now in the “end time” spoken of in the Bible before the return of Jesus Christ to Earth.

    “I think the prophecies are written that they encourage us to look for Christ’s return,” he said. “It’s written so that it’s imminent, that it could come at any time.”

    “This is not an ordinary time,” Lindsey continued. “I certainly thought that He would come sooner … but the scenario and pattern about what Bible prophecy has predicted is here. I’ve never said I know when He’s going to come, but I believe we’re in the general time.”

    When Hurricane Katrina devastated the U.S. Gulf Coast in 2005, there was similar talk about possible divine retribution thrust upon America for its support of the Gaza evacuation in Israel.

    “Katrina is a consequence of the destruction of [Gaza’s] Gush Katif [slate of Jewish communities] with America’s urging and encouragement,” Rabbi Avraham Shmuel Lewin, executive director of the Rabbinic Congress for Peace, told WND. “The U.S. should have discouraged Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon from implementing the Gaza evacuation rather than pushing for it and pressuring Israel into concessions.”

    Gallups, meanwhile, is frustrated with YouTube, for freezing the hit counter for his video at 309 views, within a half-hour of its posting. He says the company often does this to his videos, if they have a theme even remotely critical of Obama.

    “It is probably going viral,” Gallups explains on the YouTube page. “It will probably be at false low counts for days. YouTube will not tell me why our videos suffer from this anomaly. Our other popular vids took three or four days to start moving with any sense of ‘believability.'”

    He also told WND, “I’ve gotten notes from several posters trying to upload it to Facebook. They get a warning or denial saying the content is abusive, request denied. I can’t imagine what kind of content in that video would be abusive.”

    • I have read the article on Steve Qualye’s website. The question is why is this happening? Is it just judgement based on collective deeds done by our government and allowed by the citizens of this country? I believe there is always a root cause that enables a country, people, or person to fall into judgment. This is a recurring theme about what I write and it might not set well, but America as a nation was never meant to survive the endtimes as a Godly place for His people. God is coming back for a specific people (not by ethnicity, but by faith) and gathering them back into the promised land, Israel. Judgement was brought on Egypt becasue of their harsh treatment of Israel. The plagues came about as a result of Pharoah’s continued refusal to release Israel from the bondage of slavery. As long as Egypt gave Israel a safe place to live in peace, no judgement came. But what did America do to warrant this disaster? Have we not been that place where the believer’s in the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob (jew and gentile) have lived in peace and safety for over 200 years. No other nation fits this description. We now have a “Pharoah” who knew not Joseph (loosely, Israel). But what were we to expect electing a muslim president? This is a no brainer. Back to the specific question of why the oil spill, with it’s ramification of forced evacuations? If you will remember, on March 25th of 2010, Obama had a meeting with Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel. The PM was brought in through a side door, called on the carpet for construction of housing in Jersusalem, which was said to be causing problems with the peace process. Netanyahu was humiliated by Obama, was left sitting while Obama and his family went to dinner. While he bows to muslim rulers, He backhands Israel with intimidation. This is how our closest ally in the world is treated by the president this country elected. Or, should I say, our former closest ally. Israel pretty much understands they will go this alone now. So, pretty much what this was about was abandoning housing projects, in Israel’s own capital. The explosion happened on April 20th. With plans being made for a mass evacuation (or if you will, abandoning) of the Gulf region. This is not a “Thus says the Lord” comment and I am not trying to say that. I don’t believe there will be any resolution to this problem and may well be part of the judgements revealed in the book of Revelations. Could this be where the judgements, layed out in the Book of Revelations, have their source? The judgements being a response from God about how His Set-Apart people are,have been treated, and will be treated? I would be interested in any thougths about this.

      • hi Al

        I agree that any nation that injures Israel will face judgment.

        America started this trend back with the Oslo accords, 1993, forcing them to give up land for peace. It continued with the West Bank settlements, and now they want to give up more of Jerusalem to the Muslim, and make it the capital of “Palestine.”

        Insulting the ISraeli PM made it worse, and the message that our President will side with the Muslims on issues, as they supported him financially in his campaign, is a death blow to the USA.

        I would not be surprised at what happens next to America. He would not be in office if people did not vote for him. So everyone is guilty.

        Muslim nations are automatically guilty as well. They want the destruction of Israel and have waged war against it.

        Europe hurts Israel by siding with its enemies, and refusing to help Israel.

          I forgot to comment on the fact that April 20th was also Israel’s independence day. That connection has already been made by others, to the oil spill and Obams’s statement at the U.N.. Could this be the time when Israel, starting from April 20th, literally stands alone against the nations, with God as their only help? I believe that is possibly what we have witnessed in all of this. True independencence from man’s help with their only salvation to be in God. The majority of the people of Israel will perish before Messiah returns and exalts Israel before the people’s of the nations. We need to pray earnestly for our brothers and sisters in harms way.

          • April 20th was also the Queen of England’ birthday …
            So what?
            The problems with the oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico began prior to the explosion of the rig.

            • I have read some of your blog entries discussing the keeping of the Feasts, commandments, and the Sabbath. But nothing on Israel, the land and the people, and how they tie into the end times. Would be interested in hearing it.

      • Al,

        I was and still am so very upset over the way that Obama has treated PM Nethanyahu. I didn’t know about the side door-Obama is making his opinions very clear by his mistreatment of Israel and her representative.

        I have privately observed the campaign, election and OBama’s actions thereafter. My thoughts have been that OBama is a Trojan Horse per se. If his election was indeed financed by the Muslim nations then I am correct. After 9/11, the Muslims became the enemy-unfortunate for those who had nothing to do with 9/11. Now, 7 years later, a man carrying the name of Barack Hussein Obama is running for president…what!!?? there is no way the american people will elect this guy into office…his name screams Muslim and is so close to Osama Bin Laden….America’s most wanted for the attack on American Soil….well….He was elected…then “it begins”…aha!…”folks aren’t reading their Bible”…..”America is no longer a Christian Nation”…..”Obama to divide Jerusalem”….and NOW….to the UN on April 19th, 2010, we have OBama making a statement to the UN that America will no longer automatically support Israel!!!! Prior to this, knowing that PM Nethanyahu is flying in from Israel, OBama has him escorted thru the SIDE DOOR and leaves him sitting there while he goes off to have dinner with his family!!!!!
        http://liveshots.blogs.foxnews.com/2010/04/19/obama-and-israel-showdown-at-the-un/

        I “saw” this coming…whether it was thru the HS I don’t know, I just “know that I know”….His being elected President was another terrorist attack upon American Soil!!! How “devilishly clever” are they-Islam! I never bothered to vote because I knew it was already “decided” and it was all a show!!!!

        • In addition…April 20th, 2010 = Gulf Oil Spill…Notice the timing…day after Obama makes his statement to the UN. And….lets not forget the NOBEL PEACE PRIZE! WOW-that came out of “left field”.

        • And as I wrote in another post….the night that OBama was elected, the HS said CLEARLY “it has begun”…I am now using the date of that night to figure out when (it has ended)…my words not the HS..

  68. The “Waterworld” actor has invested some $20 million and spent the past 15 years in developing the centrifuges. He helped found a manufacturing company, Ocean Therapy Solutions, to advance his brother’s research in spill cleanup technology. In testimony before Congress this month, Costner walked through the device’s operation—explaining how it spins oil-contaminated water at a rapid speed, so as to separate out the oil and capture it in a containment tank:

    ANIMAL AUTOPSIES IN GULF A MYSTERY

    Hundreds of dead creatures have been collected along the Gulf Coast
    since the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded. Swabbed for oil, tagged
    and wrapped in plastic “body bags” sealed with evidence tape,
    the carcasses — many times the number normnally found at this time
    of year — are piling up in freezer trucks stationed along the
    coast, waiting for scientists to begin the process of determining what
    killed them.

    Despite an obvious suspect, oil, the answer is far from clear. The vast
    majority of the dead animals that have been found — 1,866 birds, 463
    turtles, 59 dolphins and one sperm whale — show no visible signs of
    oil contamination. Much of the evidence in the turtle cases points to
    shrimping or other commercial fishing, but other suspects include oil
    fumes, oiled food, the dispersants used to break up the oil or even
    disease.

    Tissue lab samples are one of the only ways to learn more about
    poisonous substances in marine mammals and sea turtles, whose protected
    status limits the type of studies that can be done — researchers
    cannot do experiments to determine how much oil exposure the animals can
    withstand.

    Oil — inhaled or ingested — can cause brain lesions, pneumonia,
    kidney damage, stress and death. Scientists working on the BP spill have
    seen oil-mired animals that are suffering from extreme exhaustion and
    hyperthermia, with the floating crude reaching temperatures above 130
    degrees.

    Far less is known about the effects of dispersants, either by themselves
    or mixed with oil, though almost two million gallons of the chemicals
    have been used in the BP spill.

    Studies show that dispersants, which break down oil into tiny droplets
    and can also break down cell membranes, make oil more toxic for some
    animals, like baby birds. And the solvents they contain can break down
    red blood cells, causing hemorrhaging. At least one fresh dolphin
    carcass found in the Gulf was bleeding from the mouth and blowhole.

  75. why are we drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, when there is plenty of oil elsewhere, and it is safer?
