DeepSpill -- Evidence of Foreknowledge in the Gulf
I would like to thank my friend "MsMilkytheclown" of Youtube, real name withheld, for tipping me to this story, and to the man known as "afterthepress" for the video. After speaking with a researcher who was aboard the first ship on scene after Deepwater Horizon exploded, the Pelican, he discovered a government report from 2001, summarizing the results of a study done the previous year off the coast of Norway. The purpose -- to determine what would happen if a deep water petroleum spill occurred. The description of the operation, according to the government's MMS / BOEMRE web site:
A joint industry project (JIP) was formed between the MMS and 23 different oil companies to conduct this research. The project consisted of an experimental release of oil and gas conducted in June 2000 off the coast of Norway. Mixtures of crude oil and natural gas, diesel oil and natural gas, as well as only natural gas were released at approximately 800 meters water depth. The goal was to simulate a blowout or pipeline rupture in deep water and obtain data to verify the predictions of a deep water blowout model being developed under a separate contract. In another, related, research project, experiments were conducted in a simulated deep ocean environment created in a high pressure chamber located at the University of Hawaii.
Does this look at all familiar?
Here is the list of primary participants in the DeepSpill experiment:
Note who is listed among the others -- BP and the Minerals Management Service. You can download and read the documents themselves at the link I provided above, but I'll save you some time by skipping to the one very important paragraph that is buried in all the technical jargon and mathematical formulae. From page 89 of the Final Report of BP's and the government's deep spill operation:
Figure 7.3.14 shows the normalised concentration profiles of the homologous series of Naphthalenes. The results show the peak ratio between the Naphthalenes and Fluoranthene at maximum depth of sampling (250 m). The different Naphthalenes have a ratio of 15-30% compared to the same ratios in fresh crude oil. This reflects the initial dissolution from the discharge point and up to 250 meters depth. From 250 meters depth and up to approximately 10 meters, the individual ratios decrease to 0.
The interpretation of this result is that the oil is water-extracted on its way up to the sea surface. The rate of this extraction is dependent on the solubility of the compounds in the water, such that the most soluble compounds are dissolved first. Close to the surface, the Napthalenes are almost completely extracted from the oil. These data may thus serve as a basis for estimates of the rates that various water-soluble oil compounds dissolve into the seawater. This is important information, because the water-soluble compounds are generally the most toxic ones when exposed to marine biota. The results from these measurements show that the rising of the oil through the water column represents a kind of a “stripping” process of some of the most toxic compounds in the oil. The end result is therefore that a portion of the most toxic compounds is left in the water column. This is contrasted to a surface generated slick, where a portion the most toxic compounds merely go into evaporation rather than dissolving into the sea.
And most people probably wouldn't even spend the time to read through these two very boring paragraphs to get to the meat at the very end:
There it is -- the government knew, based on an experiment in which they participated, that the most toxic chemicals released in a deep-water petroleum spill would remain the the water column, and not evaporate, as they are claiming the really nasty stuff miraculously has. This report tells us why the Barry Soetoro administration has refused to sample water, soil and wildlife in the afflicted areas, and why Homeland Insecurity has been forcibly confiscating samples from independent researchers. This is why it is now illegal to dig and make sand castles on Florida beaches, lest a child uncover BP's oil that is sitting just inches below the new sand the company covered it over with.
This report proves that BP and the federal government knew since day one what they have been denying, but that which is undeniable to local media, local authorities, and the poor people of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Georgia and Florida -- the poisons are out there, in the water, and they're not going away. No longer can President Soetorobama deny that the massive fish kills which have been seen from Louisiana all the way to New Jersey are the result of spurious, random anoxia in the water. The Minerals Management Service's own study says that the worst toxins remain suspended in the water column, not breaking down, not evaporating, not settling on the ocean floor where they would be less harmful to life.
These chemicals are carcinogenic, mutagenic and teratogenic. And they're still floating in the Gulf of Mexico. I'm not expecting Barry Soetoro to have been aware of this report. But the MMS had the study in their files, and the information must have made its way up through his eco-fascist Czars to the President himself. The fact that he continued to play dumb, continued to reassure the American people that there was no threat to wildlife or human life in the Gulf, and that the seafood was and still is perfectly safe to eat means that he engaged in purposeful deception. Like so many other aspects of the Gulf oil disaster, BP and Barry Soetoro have been covering up what they really know. What else are they lying to you about?
