Third Oil Leak in Gulf

The New York Times today says BP’s “Top Kill” attempt to plug the hole from the exploded Deepwater Horizon oil rig has failed. Meanwhile, scientists have found a third oil leak/plume.

From Washington’s Blog:

AP reported on May 27th that scientists had found a second giant plume deep under the water. The plume is 22 miles long and 6 miles wide.

Today, May 28, the Washington Post is reporting that a third giant underwater plume has been discovered:

A Louisiana scientist said his crew had located another vast plume of oily globs, miles in the opposite direction.James H. Cowan Jr., a professor at Louisiana State University, said his crew on Wednesday found a plume of oil in a section of the gulf 75 miles west of the source of the leak.

Cowan said that his crew sent a remotely controlled submarine into the water, and found it full of oily globules, from the size of a thumbnail to the size of a golf ball…. Cowan said the oil at this site was so thick that it covered the lights on the submarine.

“It almost looks like big wet snowflakes, but they’re brown and black and oily,” Cowan said. The submarine returned to the surface entirely black, he said.

Cowan said that the submarine traveled about 400 feet down, close to the sea floor, and found oil all the way down. Trying to find the edges of the plume, he said the submarine traveled miles from side to side.

“We really never found either end of it,” he said. He said he did not know how wide the plume actually was, or how far it stretched away to the west.

  2. Eowyn,
    My intention was never to trash your site.
    If the commentors are newbies from Rense, what can I say?
    I don’t claim to know everything about everything. I have over 30 years experience in underwater construction / demolition/ and structural inspection, and don’t have much tolerance for “gut feelings” , fabulous “theories”, or “biblical prophesy “explanations, especially in relation to the work I know well.I tried to engage the commentors, but was offered nonsense.Anyone who thinks the Oil “Volcano” caused by the joint actions of BP/Halliburton is an intentional act for political reasons is out of touch with reality.It is a huge blunder and environmental disaster caused by pushing the envelope of technology, buttressed by lack of oversight by the MMA. You’d think it would be “patriotic” to come together at this time, and leave politics out, I guess that’s the narcissist coming out………
    I’m sorry if I appeared rude.
    I was both entertained and amused by your newbie commentors.
    I’m home with a knee injury, and the computer is my entertainment for the next several days.

    • Erinyes,

      Thanks for explaining and apologizing. I misunderstood you that you were trashing the entire Fellowship of the Minds. I, therefore, owe you an apology and retract my invitation to you to leave.

      I have found the points you made in your rebuttals to others to be well made, especially your query as to who might benefit from this disaster. As for your point about those responding to your comments “not being profane or real mean,” Such comments are deleted and the commenter banned from the Fellowship because they violate this blog’s policy (see “About”). FYI, there was actually a response to you from someone who will remain unnamed who wishes you to go “back into [Hitler’s] ovens.”

      Sorry about your knee injury. You are welcome here, as long as you remain courteous!

      Best wishes on a quick recovery. 😉

    • I read several days ago a story that indicates that the cause of the disaster is totally the fault of BP. The story relates to the Coast Guard inquiry on how the explosion happened in the first place. The evidence of witnesses points to a disagreement between the rig engineers and an official from BP. The issue of the disagreement was the process for closing down the rig. Please excuse my ignorance on the matter, but the issue relates to the fact that the BP executive was insisting that the shutdown used saltwater as the fill. I do not understand the process, but it seems that the BP executive wanted the engineers to use a process that was dangerous. The result of that insistence from the BP executive was the gas bubble that caused the explosion.

  3. Tim is so right…unfortunately!
    “Oil spil” is just another scenario. The reserve scenario. God put to shame glodal warming theory partisans with the coldest winter in many, many years. Soft path failed. So the globalists take on the hard path to reach their goals to impose one world government and “green” economic sistem.
    Nothing can stop them. But i am still amazed how apathic, lethargic, people have become. It seems we can suffer everything and do nothing. And is not fluoride, chemtrails, food additives etc to blame for !
    They train us that abnormal is normal, that bad is good, that ugly is beautiful. Our children are no more growing with rabbits or deers, but with “good” dragons and deadly (but good too…) robots. Or even with good demons! Lady Gaga is a model for our little girls. The evil is no more hidden, is part of every day life, and we’ve lost the ability to oppose it.
    The solution is not “let’s throw out cars and close plants!” They told us: You must make sacrifices to save the country, to save the planet! but the same “they” are who destroy our countries and our planet!
    Only one thing can change that. A moral style of life, a restoration of true valors. Not in Avatar style, but in Jesus style. Do you ask yourself why the Christian Church is so denigrated and attacked this days? Why they teach us that our ancestors were monkeys, and initially even a green euglena born in oceanic soup ? Why Discovery Channel say John was a poor mad old man, physically infirmed when he wrote “The (apocalyptic) Book of Revelation” and that events he descriebed actually related to the Roman Empire era, instead of a warning of our future? They are all sons (spiritually) of the Old Snake, the Old Dragon. And like their father, they mix little truth with a big lie.
    “In the New Age we break free of centuries of false doctrines, destructive indoctrinations, absurd ideas, and children’s stories about God, education, medicine, and love. The corrupt foundations of false society crumble. This time of crises is not the signal of the end of the world. What comes is not the end, but the beginning. The dream humanity has lived for centuries ends and we awaken to a bright new day, a bright new way .” The Serpent is speaking again…And they are preparing us for that new beginning.
    Most of you wellcome “The new green era”, “The New Age”. But watch out, it will be built on your neck and on your broken soul!
    Don’t forget that the peoples have leaders they deserve. They come between us and from us. They are evil because we are evil. Once in command they work to make us more evil. We must break this vicious circle.

    P.S. Please, judge my thinking, not my grammar. I am from a latin european country.

  4. Thank you too, Dan! You are very wise as well. In a nutshell, the exact problem with the world, is that people call good, evil, and evil, good. I learned yeseterday from our priest that the one sin that is unforgiveable, the sin against the Holy Spirit, is exactly that. The Spirit is Truth. If you call good, evil, and evil, good, then you violate the truth and will never be contrite, and thus, never will be forgiven. And, you can bring the moral reality to the crisis we have in the Gulf, BP’s actions – based on greed, slothfulness in not performing their duties properly and making sure everything is safe, and so on, and so on. We must remember though, that the president at the helm took 39 DAYS TO LOOK AT THE PROBLEM!

  5. Come on people. Get real, asphalt volcanoes have been spewing into our oceans for hundreds of thousands of years. BP didn’t do anything that nature doesn’t do. It’s not going to end all life on Earth or we would all be dead already. Petroleum is a natural biodegradable substance that will only cause temporary problems. They won’t fix it because they want us to see how much safer (and cheaper) it is to drill closer to the shoreline. There is a place in my back yard where I used to drain the oil out of my vehicles, it is just as green and healthy as any other spot.

  8. Recently posted in the respected journal Science, top environmental scientists and economists are warning more than ever that “Human-made Crises are outrunning our ability to deal with them”. These researchers cited “Energy, food and water crises, climate disruption, declining fisheries, ocean acidification, emerging diseases and increasing antibiotic resistance are examples of serious, intertwined global-scale challenges spawned by the accelerating scale of human activity”.
    They went on to say that nations alone are unable to resolve the sorts of planet-wide challenges now arising.

  18. The United States of America has been under attack by the power-mongers, which I will refer to as globalists, since their secession from the Colonies. The civil war was funded by these enemies on both sides – to make this land and its people controllable.
    Andrew Jackson was the only President to have both federalized the “federal reserve”, AND brought this country from deficit to SURPLUS. He was attacked by a man with blood, money, and marriage relations to the powerful ones. This man lunged at him, stuck 2 pistols in his belly and pulled both triggers. They both failed. This man had relations to the globalists’ societies.
    President Lincoln ended their investment in the civil war by keeping the country intact. He also instated “Green-Backs”, which were legitimate US dollars and not the banks’. Booth, who shot him, was connected to a society of elite down south and up in Canada. He was primed and pumped up to kill Lincoln. The Greenbacks were gone.
    A wealthy and powerful group of men met in the early twentieth century at Jekyll Island. They drafted a means of controlling all the money of this country, circumventing all proper procedure and laws. They got away with it, and were effective (The Fed).
    JFK, working with Brother Bobby, was going to break up the corruption he perceived in the CIA, Mafia, and US government in general. He learned too much about “black op’s”, the black budget, secret technologies being used against Citizens. He also was planning to federalize the “Federal Reserve”. They shot his brains out.
    Immigration laws were purposely curbed. A HUGE influx of really poor and disaffected non-citizens was a very effective weapon against these United States. It has ruined the job availability and wage structure for 30% of American Citizens. They burden our medical system, and all social services everywhere they go. They are granted huge amounts of money thru programs deliberately sabotaged by pressure from the top thru corrupt Politicians, of whom the globalists power structure have about 70% “on the hook” (dirty pix, etc…). They run cocaine and heroin, kill cops and anybody else who gets in their path, bring diseases, and are granted “amnesty”. WHY? Because a nation is weaker when IT MEANS NOTHING TO BE A CITIZEN ANYMORE.
    Around 1990, there was a big meeting of the super-elite in Miami, I think. This was NAFTA’s launching pad. American Protesters were shot and killed by a well-prepared and pumped-up police force in formation and full riot gear.
    NAFTA removed the benefits of import tariffs and existing trade laws, and freed rich corporations to trash their facilities and workers, selling everything from under their feet. Horrible work conditions, child labor, and massive pollution don’t hold a candle to the brilliance of increasing one’s profit, apparently. MILLIONS LOST THEIR JOBS. CHAFTA, which I call “SHAFTA” is a nice follow-up to a stinging barrage. Millions more citizens lose their way of life. They look to GOVERNMENT for help.
    9/11 happens. FEAR! TERROR! We look to GOVERNMENT for protection. Billion$ more are funneled around to God-knows-who, and we invade another country, all based on lies.
    Next, nothing really big happens at all !!! Oh. Hmm. BOOM !!! A really weird, difficult-to-believe “accident” occurs. Now GOVERNMENT must take over this HUGE TERROR !!!
    We have little toys 100 million miles away on Mars, running 7 years past their warranty. The Titanic was 2.5 miles down while Bob Ballard climbed all over and inside this ship, sorting dishes, going thru walls. He even helped James Cameron make the big movie, in addition to taking him down there to see it.
    The Gulf oil-leak has a surrounding pressure of about 2200 psi. this is two and a half times less pressure than the Titanic. We have powerful robots down there goofing off, taking videos, smoking cigarettes as far as we know. I researched the differential pressure at the well-head, and got figures from 20 psi, to 100,000 psi. Wow. If they get thing capped, the oil might all turn into A HUGE DIAMOND.
    I would guess the pressure at around 100 psi, not much more than household plumbing. Even if it is more, it could not stop a huge tapered plug from shutting it down. The momentum issue would be addressed by this needle-valve type approach inherently.
    A swaged fitting could be hydraulicly compressed around the 21-inch pipe and bite into the steel, to which then could be attached, with hydraulics, a plug. Yes, even a valved plug. BP doesn’t seem to want to put anything on this expensive hole that can’t be opened up later, when the news coverage dwindles, and the majority can relax and be distracted from the plight of those damaged.
    I look to the fight in Arizona for their right to enforce the Constitutional Laws, to guide us – inform us of who is for America and who are the destroyers. I hope the bible was right – that God will return and ruin the ruiners of the Earth – Hopefully all of them.
