Oil Spill Fire Boom

Despite plan, not a single fire boom on hand on Gulf Coast at time of oil spill
From the May 03, 2010 21:41:32 GMT edition of the Drudge Report.


White House told within 24 hours that 8,000 barrels a day could escape

Information from the Washington Examiner-

Documents obtained by the Center for Public Integrity make clear that the White House was told by the Coast Guard within 24 hours of the April 20 explosion on BP's Deepwater Horizon platform that the equivalent of 8,000 barrels a day could escape into the ocean. Within three days, Obama and his senior aides were warned that the spill could exceed the in environmental damage caused by the Exxon Valdez wreck in 1989.

Despite these warnings, over the next two months Obama attended Democratic fundraisers, played golf, hosted basketball and football teams at the White House and delivered commencement speeches. Two weeks passed before he could be bothered to go to Louisiana.

BP’s CEO Hasn’t Spoken Directly With Obama About Leak
BP Plc Chief Executive Officer Tony Hayward hasn’t spoken directly to President Barack Obama since the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded on April 20.

“There is no need for that,” Hayward told the British Broadcasting Corp. in a live interview in London today. “I have spoken to his key lieutenants.”

Gulf Oil Disaster - Day 48

Sunday, June 6, 2010

Have you noticed that the initials for Gulf Oil Disaster spells out the word GOD?
Is this wrath?
Take a look at conspiracy reason A. Is this another sign or just another coincidence?

Crude gushes from cap; only a fraction captured... - Thad Allen, guessed early Friday that the cap was collecting 42,000 gallons a day - less than one-tenth of the amount leaking from the well. Later in the day, BP said in a tweet that since it was installed Thursday night, it had collected about 76,000 gallons. Six weeks after the April 20 oil rig explosion that killed 11 workers, the well has leaked somewhere between 22 million and 47 million gallons of oil, according to government estimates.

Divided into 42 gallon barrels, this equals between 523,809 and 1,119,048.
523,809 barrels / 47 days (report date 6/5) = 11,145 barrels per day
1,119,048 barrels / 47 days (report date 6/5) = 23,809 barrels per day

These new numbers are quite different from the initial estimates of 1,000 and then 5,000 barrels per day.

Disaster Defined

An occurrence causing widespread destruction and distress; a catastrophe.

A disaster is a perceived tragedy, being either a natural calamity or man-made catastrophe. It is a hazard which has come to fruition. A hazard, in turn, is a situation which poses a level of threat to life, health, property, or that may deleteriously affect society or an environment.

In the modern world, the traditional view of natural disasters as punishments for human wickedness has given way to the scientific study of the causes of seemingly unpredictable acts of nature. In recent years, however, scholars have placed more emphasis on the roles played by greed and indifference to potential human suffering in many seemingly "natural" disasters.
