The Last World Cup ?

Celebrate the 2010 World Cup now because in four years we may well be in the throes of a mass extinction triggered by a mammoth methane explosion in the Gulf that could reach biblical proportions of destruction: Allen L Roland

OK, it was a great World Cup and millions of people throughout the planet watched it unfold sharing joy and agony as their specific teams were either eliminated or advanced on sports biggest stage ~ the World Cup.

I was equally caught up in World Cup fever but I also have an ominous feeling that this could well be the last one ~ particularly as the true extent of the Gulf Coast oil disaster becomes more apparent. In other words, for the first time I'm not talking about an unparalleled disaster in the Gulf ~ I'm talking about possible extinction.

In that regard, here's an informative must-read article entitled Ominous report of Gulf sea floor bulging with gas, extinction level event on the horizon ~ written by Terrence Aym and posted by Watchman on Saturday, July 10, 2010.

Excerpts: " Ominous reports are leaking past the BP Gulf salvage operation news blackout that the disaster unfolding in the Gulf of Mexico may be about to reach biblical proportions .... The bottom line: BP’s Deepwater Horizon drilling operation may have triggered an irreversible, cascading geological Apocalypse that will culminate with the first mass extinction of life on Earth in many millions of years ~ The oil giant drilled down miles into a geologically unstable region and may have set the stage for the eventual premature release of a methane mega-bubble..... The warning signs of an impending planetary catastrophe ~ of such great magnitude that the human mind has difficulty grasping it ~ would be the appearance of large fissures or rifts splitting open the ocean floor, a rise in the elevation of the seabed, and the massive venting of methane and other gases into the surrounding water... All three warning signs are documented to be now occurring in the Gulf..... Measurements of the multiple oil plumes now appearing miles from the wellhead indicate that as much as a total of 124,000 barrels of oil are erupting into the Gulf waters daily ~ that’s about 5,208,000 gallons of oil per day.

Most disturbing of all: Methane levels in the water are now calculated as being almost one million times higher than normal.... If the methane bubble ~ a bubble that could be as big as 20 miles wide ~ erupts with titanic force from the seabed into the Gulf, every ship, drilling rig and structure within the region of the bubble will immediately sink. All the workers, engineers, Coast Guard personnel and marine biologists participating in the salvage operation will die instantly.

Next, the ocean bottom will collapse, instantaneously displacing up to a trillion cubic feet of water or more and creating a towering supersonic tsunami annihilating everything along the coast and well inland. Like a thermonuclear blast, a high pressure atmospheric wave could precede the tidal wave flattening everything in its path before the water arrives."

Here's the still unanswered questions regarding this growing catastrophe.

1. Why did a number of powerful players conveniently dump large numbers of BP shares prior to the event which began on April 20th, 2010 ? That includes Goldman Sachs which sold 44% of its shares in BP just prior to when this disaster began. BP’s CEO Tony Hayward sold a large chunk of his BP shares a few weeks before the spill. Both Wachovia and UBS also sold a large block of their BP shares before the spill and It is highly probable that Peter Sutherland played a role in Goldman Sachs decision to dump a large chunk of their BP shares prior to the disaster considering he has maintained an affiliation with both institutions.
Answer: They were aware of the incredible danger of their recklessness and their first action was to save themselves and then stonewall the true extent of this catastrophe for financial reasons.

2. Why is the press and media purposely being kept away from this growing disaster by both BP and the Obama administration ? For instance, the federal government has warned the media to keep away from the epicenter of clean-up operations with the threat of a $40,000 fine for each infraction and the possibility of felony arrests.
Answer: The inside word is that the disaster is escalating ! BP is trying to financially protect itself while the Obama administration is politically protecting itself from the truth of this disaster in a mid-term election year. However, the global financial elite, which Obama answers to, would like nothing better than another vehicle of fear to paralyze the public and solidify their plans for a New World Order.

The highly respected Investigative Reporter Dahr Jamail weighs in yesterday ( Hell Has Come to South Louisiana ) ~ where he interviews Clint Guidry who represents all the shrimpers in Louisiana. Guidry is incensed at what he is seeing ~ “There has been a BP cover-up from day one,” he says, as I write furiously in my notepad, trying to keep up, “The US Government, OSHA [Occupational Safety and Health Administration], the Coast Guard, NIOSH [National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health], all of them are in on it... “Kill the Ocean, Save the Beaches,” a “Trade-Off” decision. Under what logic does this work? The Gulf is the Mother and the Estuaries are the nurseries. If the Mother dies, there will be no children to incubate.. Is BP sacrificing my fishermen’s health and lives to protect themselves from liability issues at a later date?How can we believe liars and killers when they say the worksite is safe? "

The Experts weigh in: The subterranean methane is pressurized at 100,000 pounds psi. According to Matt Simmons, an oil industry expert, the methane pressure at the wellhead has now skyrocketed to a terrifying 40,000 pounds psi.

Another well-respected expert, Dr. John Kessler of Texas A&M University has calculated that the ruptured well is spewing 60 percent oil and 40 percent methane. The normal methane amount that escapes from a compromised well is about 5 percent.

My scenario ~ When this methane bubble blows, while under the current news blackout of BP and Government enforced silence as well as the blatant deception of the Gusher being contained by BP ~ it will be sold to the public as a natural (not man-made) disaster, FEMA camps will be opened, Government emergency controls enacted and BP will be financially off the hook.

So there you have it, a ticking Methane time bomb in the Gulf that both BP and the Obama Administration refuse to acknowledge. Pass on this post to all your friends on the Gulf for as Terrence Aym points out ~ " Most experts in the know, however, agree that if the world-changing event does occur it will happen suddenly and within the next 6 months."

Obviously, the total failure of all levels of government to deal with this growing environmental disaster provides the impetus for an immediate populist response: Click on for details ~

As Einstein once said ~ The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.
