The Dead Zone [Gulf of Mexico BP Gusher]
The Omega Letter ^ | Tuesday, June 24, 2010 | Jack Kinsella

The Dead Zone

by Jack Kinsella

The Omega Letter is a daily journal of current events as viewed from the perspective of Bible prophecy and written as they occur.   We went online on October 14, 2001 and so our archives are something of a daily record of the 21st century.

(I’m not trying to blow our horn, here. There is a point I want to make, so bear with me.) Over the years, we’ve published the OL day in and day out, from literally hundreds of locations both here and from abroad.

In all that time, the Omega Letter Daily Briefing has had but one writer and one researcher for every single one of the two thousand, eight hundred and fifty-nine briefs in our archive database. (That would be moi - your humble correspondent.)

Since the OL is a daily project, it is a more or less constant process. Every event, every conversation, every newly discovered fact from history, every social, political or environmental upheaval is a potential OL topic of interest — so the research never stops.

Researching the OL takes me a lot of places I don’t want to go and teaches me a lot of stuff I really don’t want to know.

I say all that to make the following point: What I have learned over the past few weeks concerning the BP oil spill in the Gulf has shaken me more than any event we’ve discussed over the course of the entire 21st century.

The information being withheld, if true, is so catastrophic that it is literally a case of the country not being able to handle the truth.

That said, I’ve done my level best to confirm the following information but the political smokescreen surrounding it leaves me with less than 100% confidence – but only slightly less. I could be taken in by a hoax and I pray that is the case, but I don’t think so.

BP estimates that the oil reservoir pouring into the Gulf could contain as much as two billion barrels of oil, currently spewing out at something on the order of 100,000 to 160,000 gallons per day. At that rate, the spill, if left uncapped, could continue to foul the Gulf for four years before running dry.

And it appears that capping the well is not and never has been an option.  Because of the pressure, capping the wellhead would rupture the well pipe causing oil to flood out into the strata below the sea floor.

The erosion process would cause the oil to erupt through the sea bed creating a literal and unstoppable volcano of oil and mud. When the Deepwater Horizon exploded, it ruptured the well pipe a mile beneath the surface.

With pressures that could be as high as 100,000 psi, plugging the well will force the oil out into the seabed floor and only meters from a large methane gas bubble some 15 to 20 miles wide.

Even if they do nothing, eventually that methane bubble will migrate to the well.  When that happens, it will explode up the well pipe creating the same catastrophe as if they plugged it.

Unless BP’s relief well effort can relieve the pressure, when that gas bubble hits the pipe it presents one of two scenarios, both of which are unthinkably catastrophic. (And BP is rumored to have quietly advanced their expected completion date for the relief well to sometime around Christmas.)

In the first and seemingly most catastrophic, the gas explodes under the sea floor, creating a massive upheaval and collapse that could trigger a tsunami that could wash away the Gulf Coast up to fifty miles inland.

In the second, the escaping cloud of deadly methane gas could be blown ashore, displacing the oxygen and suffocating uncounted Gulf Coast residents. The sudden rush of gas to the surface could also theoretically trigger a tsunami.

Former Shell Oil CEO John Hofmeister confirmed on Fox News last week that the use of high explosives and possibly a small nuclear device are being considered as a last resort on the theory that the blast would crush the borehole and seal it.

But it has never been done and nobody knows for sure if it will work or if it will trigger an even greater underground explosion. It gets worse.

There are roughly 3400 active drilling platforms out in the Gulf, many of which have been there for decades. When a well runs dry, they move the platform to another honey hole until it runs dry.  This means there are uncounted numbers of vast empty underground caverns beneath the sea floor of the Gulf.

Most of these drilling rigs are sucking oil from the same ultimate giant oil deposit under the Gulf of Mexico’s continental shelf, meaning they are all interconnected.

When you take something out and don’t replace it with something else, it dramatically alters the dynamics under the seafloor. These cracks and fissures could collapse in a domino effect in the event of an underground explosion, either natural or man-made, also triggering the risk of a Gulf tsunami.

And a dead zone from Mexico to Florida.

Assessment:

Admittedly, these are worst-case scenarios, but there are no best-case scenarios under consideration. Oil contains chemicals and volatile gases that are both toxic and carcinogenic. Gulf Coast residents that are able to smell the heavy oil are undoubtedly breathing in these gases at the same time.

There are persistent rumors of a FEMA plan to evacuate at least eighteen cities along the Gulf Coast. In April, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal asked the feds to “fund 6000 soldiers and airmen on active duty” to:

“provide security, medical capabilities, engineers and communication support in response to this threat. Currently, our Soldiers and Airmen are staging for and are engaged in the planning of the effort to evacuate and provide security and clean up for the coastal communities expected to be impacted by the oil spill.”

On June 9th the FAA closed the airspace over the Gulf of Mexico to all unauthorized aircraft. There is now a 200 mile radius dead zone in the Gulf due to the spill.

FEMA is rumored to be quietly making plans for the mass evacuation of New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Mandeville, Hammond, Houma, Belle Chase, Chalmette, Slidell, Biloxi, Gulfport, Pensacola, Hattiesburg, Mobile, Bay Minette, Fort Walton Beach, Panama City, Crestview, and Pascagoula.

There is a risk of toxic rain resulting from the combination of methane and the poisonous Corexit oil dispersant. FEMA officials fear it will poison coastal fresh water reservoirs, lakes, streams and rivers.

Let me say now that most of this is rumored, but if FEMA DOESN’T have evacuation plans in place for the Gulf Coast, then FEMA is criminally derelict in its duties.

And I cannot envision a scenario short of permanently capping the well by lunchtime today that won’t ultimately require the evacuation of at least some of the Gulf Coast shoreline.

I am trying very hard not to get all conspiracist or overly sensational in today’s report and it is hard not to sound like I’ve lost my mind – even I think it sounds a little nuts.  Until you look at the situation and try and come up with an alternative scenario that doesn’t.

This old earth is in already in a state of mass upheaval; earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis are practically daily affairs somewhere on the earth. The earth’s magnetic field is decreasing rapidly and may be signaling a coming catastrophic magnetic polar shift.

We are emerging from a solar minimum and headed into a solar maximum that astronomers predict could result in catastrophic solar ejections that threaten to engulf the earth with a giant EMP pulse sometime around the end of 2012.

The Gulf oil spill has the potential to poison the entire Gulf of Mexico and left uncapped, within a couple of years possibly the rest of the world’s oceans.  A couple of years from now would be sometime in the middle of 2012.

The word ‘catastrophic’ applies to practically every scenario, financial, political, environmental or extra-terrestrial. It is hard to see how humanity will manage to elude all the looming threats and emerge intact on the other side.

Particularly since ALL of it was forecast in advance as part and parcel of the overall scenario that points to the soon return of Christ.

Revelation 8:8-9 forecasts the third part of the seas will become as blood, killing a third part of the creatures in the sea. That judgment is followed by the poisoning of a third part of the world’s fresh water.

Jesus warned of signs in the sun, moon and stars. He said that unfolding events would cause men’s hearts to fail them with fear and cause the nations to cower in fear and confusion.

But Jesus said that while these things will confuse and terrorize the lost, He said they should be signs of encouragement to the Church.

What it means is that the world will soon see the Son of Man coming in power and great glory at His Second Coming.

“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.” (Luke 21:24:26)

But having given the broad outline through to the end, Jesus got down to specifics insofar as what it means to the Church on this side of the Tribulation.   We are witnessing the conspiracy of seemingly unconnected events that are leading precisely to the conditions Jesus described.

But His message to the Church isn’t the same message He gave to those who will be preserved through the Time of Jacob’s Trouble.

“And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” (Luke 21:28)

For the Church, the message is both simple and direct.  When we see these things BEGIN to come to pass, then it’s time to prepare for lift off!

Maranatha!

I wonder how the BP dead zone compares with the fertilizer dead zone in the gulf. One difference is that the BP dead zone will stop growing when the well is plugged. The fertilizer dead zone will grow as long as fertilizer is washed into the rivers flowing to the gulf. One other difference; the fertilizer dead zone is not mentioned in the main stream media. You have to look it up.

Full of false statements.

Relief wells don’t relieve the pressure, they contain it.

Old production platforms are not relocated to new location for use at a new field. The are dismantled and sometimes sank to create artificial reefs.

Depleted oil fields do not leave empty caverns. Think of a drinking gas packed with sand; then water poured in. If the water is then removed, no large voids exist.

No, it won’t be the end of the world, but it could be the end of many other things.

I don’t think any of the theories that I have read suggested that this is the “end of the world”.

It may well be the end of The Gulf of mexico though. If worst case scenarios become reality, it could be the end of where I and many other people live.

Furthermore, I am not aware of people scamming anything. People are theorizing and hypothesizing, at least in part because there is an information blackout on this subject by the media, which is quite curious in and of itself.

People saying this situation is no problem are the ones who should be charged with fraud.

You were saying ...

The end of the world scam idiots should be charged with fraud!

But, the thing about the "end of the world" (as it's popularly known in secular culture) is actually a teaching of the Bible, in terms of the 7-year Tribulation period, the judgments of God that occurs during that time, and the one-world government that comes about during that time, and also the several wars that occur -- for instance, like the Psalm 83 war and the Ezekiel 38/39 war.

In reality, the Bible does not present it as the "end of the world" -- but rather as a time of terrible judgments from God, and of the worst time that mankind has ever faced before, but not "the end". What happens after those terrible judgments and the elimination of 2/3 of the population of the globe -- is the "new world order" which is put into place by the Messiah of Israel, when He sets up His rule over all the nations of the world. That's not the "end of the world" - but actually the beginning of a brand new world order, of righteousness and peace and prosperity.

So, these coming things don't depend upon the BP oil gusher for any of these Biblical items to happen. The BP oil gusher is just a "bonus" item, here ... LOL ...

Yeah, you gotta wonder why some are saying it's "no problemo" ... LOL ... it's like a bunch of people are somehow "blind" to things ... I have no idea what their problem is.

In fact, I just read that the BP oil gusher has now hit the record books for the Gulf of Mexico, as the biggest oil disaster on record. I remember when there were others (a number of weeks back) who were posting that it really wasn't the biggest oil disaster in the Gulf ... so I guess they were just waiting around until it was ... hoo-boy!

And now that it is... are these same people going to wait around until it becomes even bigger ... you gotta wonder ...

I have not been able to understand those who attempt to minimize this situation. Perhaps within the first few days, or even the first couple of weeks, I could understand people not being able to realize the scope of this. I confess that I did not really start paying close attention until early May.

But at this point, I think it is clear to anyone with sense that this situation is not only dangerous as it is now, but it can potentially become MUCH worse. We are obviously being lied to by both BP and Zero’s admin. What are they hiding and why? The media is obviously doing their best to pretend this isn’t even occurring. Why?

I personally want to effort to not get pulled into far-fetched worse case scenarios, because I don’t need to become more upset about this than I already am. But at the same time, I realize that worst case scenarios do exist, and it is within the realm of possibilty that they could occur. Hopefully they do not, but to ignore them is folly.

And on top of it all we have the most dishonest, incompetent, dishonorable, slithering snake bastard which calls itself Obama at the helm of this ship.

God Help Us.

SOME

SEEM TO BE TERMINALLY TERRIFIED

OF FACING REALITY—NOT TO MENTION, PLAUSIBLE TO PROBABLE REALITIES.

Scripture warned about our era with folks’ hearts failing them for fear.

Others are just arrogant and unable and unwilling to even imagine that anyone else could be right and them wrong.

Well, since Obaby is one of those people saying Yeah, everything is fine, come down and go to the beaches...

Those fraud charges would be DISMISSED, and whomever filed them would be fined!
