Scuba Diving in the Gulf Oil Spill

This just makes you want to cry……a scientist who has been studying the coral and diving in the Gulf for years takes us on a scuba dive to see just what is in the water now….

Latest on the Gulf Oil Crisis

No doubt everyone is fully up to date on what the MSM (Main Stream Media) are feeding us about what is happening with the Oil Leak down in the Gulf…..

But the questions still arise:  why is BP giving all the orders?  Even the Coastguard are subservient to them, and local councils have not been receiving ANY cooperation from BP at all!  BP has also ignored the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) demand that the use of the dispersant Corexit be stopped immediately as its use is compounding the toxicity of the whole area.

Now we know there is a “No Fly Zone” over the whole area, and reporters and cameramen have been threatened with arrest if they stray outside the designated areas where they are set up with “photo opportunities” and workers are brought in to rake a beach etc.  Soon as the reporters leave – so too do the workers.  We know all this.

We dont know WHY??

Well, here is a series of clips that may answer that question.

Firstly, here is a Sea Shepherd plane breaking the no fly zone order and getting in really close.  You can see there is virtually NO clean up going on. Hardly a boat to be seen in the entire area!  Booms placed in random patterns that appear to be doing nothing whatsoever to aid the entrapment of the gushing oil.

Secondly, here is footage of lines of dumptrucks and bulldozers heading to the beaches (closely followed by a mysterious black SUV with darkly tinted windows). That in itself is not too sinister:

But wait, here is the next clip showing a reporter illegally on the beach, using his foot to drag a groove in the pristine white sand – and what???  just underneath the lovely white sand is obviously oil from the gulf   THAT HAS NOT BEEN CLEANED UP OR REMOVED!!

People are down there right now trying to get more footage to actually catch them bulldozing clean sand on top of the spilt oil – I myself noted in the footage you can quite plainly see tread/tracks marks obviously from heavy machinery there on the pristine white sand which he scrapes away!  So once again, we are being lied to and BP have some serious questions to answer!

And finally, here is a great article for you to read:

BP aware of cracks in oil well two months before explosion.

18 06 2010

“BP was aware of cracks appearing in the Macondo well as far back as February, right around the time Goldman Sachs and BP Chairman Tony Hayward were busy dumping their stocks in the company on the eve of the explosion that led to the oil spill, according to information uncovered by congressional investigators.

The Mining and Mineral Services agency released documents to Bloomberg indicating that BP “was trying to seal cracks in the well about 40 miles (64 kilometers) off the Louisiana coast,” according to the report.

The fissures, which BP began to attempt to fix on February 13, could have played a role in the disaster, though this is a question still being explored by investigators. Improperly sealed, the cracks cause explosive natural gas to rush up the shaft.

“The company attempted a “cement squeeze,” which involves pumping cement to seal the fissures, according to a well activity report. Over the following week the company made repeated attempts to plug cracks that were draining expensive drilling fluid, known as “mud,” into the surrounding rocks,” states the report.

As we previously highlighted, eyewitness evidence indicates that Deepwater Horizon managers knew that the BP oil rig had major problems before its explosion on April 20. A crew member who rescued burning workers on the rig told Houston attorney Tony Buzbee of a conversation between Deepwater Horizon installation manager Jimmy Harrell and someone in Houston. According to the witness, Harrell was screaming, “Are you fucking happy? Are you fucking happy? The rig’s on fire! I told you this was gonna happen.”

The fact that BP managers were aware of problems with the rig and were seemingly unconcerned about fixing them only lends more weight to the already startling indications of some having foreknowledge of the disaster.

As we highlighted last week, on page 37 of British Petroleum’s own investigative report into the oil spill, it is stated that the Hydraulic Control System on equipment designed to automatically seal the well in an emergency was modified without BP’s knowledge sometime before the explosion.

Highly suspicious stock and share trades by people connected to BP before the explosion indicate some extent of foreknowledge.

Goldman Sachs dumped 44% of its shares in BP Oil during the first quarter of 2010 – shares that subsequently lost 36 percent of their value, equating to $96 million. The current chairman of Goldman Sachs is Bilderberg luminary Peter Sutherland, who is also the former chairman of British Petroleum.

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

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.

Halliburton is named in the majority of some two dozen lawsuits 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.”
