Capricorn Two

Oil Industry Expert: BP Engaged In Massive Coverup

"Simmons, former energy adviser to the second President Bush, explained that according to his reading of the data from NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, capping of the so-called riser and the subsequent announcement by U.S. President Obama was “the biggest con job we’ve ever seen.”

Simmons, creator of an investment bank catering to oil companies, told radio host Ian Masters that the real problem continuing to gush oil into the Gulf was not the 6-inch “riser” that apparently has been capped amid much TV hoopla, but that an open hole or cauldron perhaps up to 10 miles distant from where British Petroleum’s cameras are focused which continues to spew 120,000 BARRELS per day, and that BP’s much publicized effort to drill relief wells in what the company says is an effort to stop the flow of oil is nothing but a cynical publicity stunt.

“The dimensions of this lie are beyond belief,” said Simmons, explaining that the idea of a relief well is “tricky at best,” since trying to hit a pipe of less than a foot in diameter 35,000 feet below the surface of the Gulf may be entirely futile because the casing of the original pipe is not even there, having blown away at some point."

"Simmons also noted an additional danger. “What the researchers now believe is that basically is that between 4000 and 4500 below the ocean floor lies an oil lake that’s somewhere between 100 and 120 miles wide and it’s about 4500 feet deep. It’s this toxic waste and crude and it’s releasing methane gases that are absolutely lethal which is why all the fish and dolphins and sharks and whales are dying. And workers too, which is why so many have gotten sick, or maybe really sick.

“The health problems are so serious,” Simmons said. “When you inhale methane you just die.”

If you want to listen to the radio interview, which I recommend, you can download it from KPFK in Los Angeles.

This confirms everything I've been writing, only apparently I underestimated the true size of the threat -- instead of smaller, slower leaks coming from hundreds of naturally formed vents on the ocean floor, if Mr. Simmons is correct, we are in much greater danger than even I thought. Think about the dimensions of the petroleum deposit --120 miles wide by 400-500 feet deep. I don't know the outline of the "lake" as I'll call it, so let's assume the smallest possible footprint, that is for the sake of discussion a perfect cylindrical shape.

Taking 120 miles as the diameter and assuming the more conservative 400 feet depth, that means that the lake contains 3427.19 cubic miles of material, or contained... A tiny fraction has gotten out these last three months through the detonated wellhead, the smaller natural vents, and this new "cauldron" of which Simmons spoke. Think about that -- one cubic mile is a volume almost unimaginable, but over 3,400 cubic miles? Even with this cauldron in play, how long will it take for the oil and methane to finally exhaust the deposit's supply?

There was a very good movie from the late 1970's called Capricorn One, wherein the government faked a NASA mission to Mars by fooling the public with actors and props on a soundstage. If Simmons is right, this is essentially what BP has been doing, but with a twist. There is a massive fraud going. Evidently what we see from their ROVs is a true operation to cap the wellhead but that is, as I've called it before, a circus sideshow distraction for the media. BP have control of all the ROVs down there, and even though the government ordered them early on to make the feeds available live to the media and public (which I give Soetoro credit for, by the way), every day I've looked about one third of the feeds are either totally offline or blank black or green screens. Usually the unavailable feeds are from the same units.

What are those ROVs doing, and why does BP not want us to see what they are seeing in their control room? Obviously ROVs, like any high tech equipment, need downtime for maintenance and repair, but why are the same few ROVs' video feeds never available while others, like the twin Skandi subs, are always online? The Skandi feeds, particularly that from ROV #2, are the ones used 95% of the time by the media, and nearly 100% before the well was capped a few days ago. They're the ones that provided the dramatic footage of the oil geyser spewing from the broken well.

I believe that BP are probably using the publicly unavailable video feeds from these other subs to monitor this cauldron which Mr. Simmons has brought to the public's attention. They are also probably surveying the ocean floor to determine whether it remains relatively stable or if it shows signs of weakening further. Because if the whole rock layer above their petroleum lake shatters, the methane released would instantly kill everyone around the well involved in the containment and cleanup efforts, and could kill many more people if the winds blew it on shore. If that should happen, God forbid, BP would be facing lawsuits on a mass scale never seen, and likely criminal charges of negligent homicide.

There is no way to tell how this will end up. Whether my worst fear is correct, that the globalists might want a total blowout in order to kill millions of Americans, I do not know. Still my money is on the "silent kill" scenario, where BP will pretend to have capped the well, the media will another couple of weeks covering the cleanup efforts on the beaches, then lose interest, the people will forget about the story believing the crisis to be over, but all the while the oil and methane and toxins will continue pouring into the Gulf from these other leaks that BP and the government are hiding from us.

Or I, Alex Jones, Michael Savage, Lindsey Williams, George Noory, Mike Rivero, Mr. Simmons and everyone else could be completely off our rockers. Maybe this is just a terrible, unforseen accident complicated by laziness and complacency at BP and in the Soetoro administration. But I don't think so. If the Gulf oil disaster were not caused on purpose, it certainly has been used on purpose to push for BP's carbon tax. I think this will all come out in time. I stand by my predictions.
