Media blackout on Gulf spill

Postby Charles » Mon Jul 05, 2010 10:11 pm

Anderson Cooper of CNN alleges what many others in media are asserting, that the media is being blocked by both BP and the government when it comes to reporting on the oil spill disaster.

We've only seen the tip... it is the very beginning of the horror that's coming. The Gulf is extremely toxic now and it's getting worse all the time.

What they don't want you to know (at least from what I've heard) is that the oil is now leaking from multiple locations, and that they are trying to either burn it, or something caught on fire and the oil is burning under water. I'm not sure how it was possible or how it happened but that means the toxic levels will be severely increased because of what the oil turns into when it burns. The whole Gulf and the surrounding areas are apparently quickly becoming a dead zone and all life in the area will either get sick or die.

The toxic chemicals seem to be also getting into the water in many areas along or close to the coast and it's possibly becoming unhealthy to drink. The water has been tested in multiple areas and it looks pretty bad, more toxic than anyone expected. People are starting to get sick.

If a strong hurricane hits the Gulf it will be all over.

This has been out for a little while but amount of shock it creates is still the same...



James Fox flew over the BP Gulf oil disaster with Marine Biologist Dr. Carl Safina who's president of Blue Ocean Institute on day 52 of the BP Oil spill.

Eating fish and the whole fishing industry will probably be gone from the Gulf Coast for a many lifetimes.

The water in the Gulf is extremely poisonous.


Oil and water samples were taken from both the Shores of Grand Isle and from 20 miles out. The preliminary analysis was done at an academic analytical chemistry laboratory. Looking for the likely pollutants from the deep water Horizon Oil spill. It was focused on the detection of benzene and propylene glycol. Benzene and other highly toxic contaminants were very low however the concentration of propylene glycol was between 360 and 440 parts per million. Just 25 parts per million is known to kill most fish and propylene glycol is just one of many ingredients found in Corexit. In short, the Gulf is being poisoned by BP's usage of the dispersants even after the EPA asked them to stop back in May.

I really hope this is not true.



It's in 9 parts. This is pt 2:


(If you watch the rest, you may have to wade through some of the talking, but I just listen to the facts...)

The bottom line is... BP drilled into something that was too powerful for their current technology to handle. That's why it exploded. The force was too strong and ripped it all open. Now they can't stop it because it can't be stopped. They are talking about nuking it to close it up but that would probably cause it to rip open even more which would lead to destroying a much larger part of the ocean. The Gulf is already dead but we still don't know how far this will spread. It looks like the greed for oil has finally caught up and slammed the innocent people. BP should be in deep s**t already but they aren't and they probably never will be.

Face it. This is the beginning of something extremely bad for all of us (as if we needed something else worse than all the other bad stuff going on), especially with all those idiots in charge who have no idea what they are doing... or is this what they want? It's hard to tell at this point. The sad truth is, it will be a very long time before this begins to get any better.
