This high-resolution image shows Petit Bois Island (top right) and the eastern end of Horn Island (top left) on June 26. In general, oil-covered waters are silvery and cleaner waters are blue-gray. This pattern is especially consistent farther...
BP has confirmed its 45-ton blowout preventer is tilting sideways up to 15 degrees. Rogue scientists point to tilting as evidence of a severely weakened well, and warn it could fall and crash the entire rig through the ocean floor.
The discovery suggested that the force of the erupting petroleum from BP's well on April 20 was so violent that it sent pipe segments hurtling into the blowout preventer, like derailing freight cars.
This video is a week old but it allows us to see what the Main Stream Media is hiding from us.
The federal government has shut down sand dredging that was being done to create protective sand berms in the Gulf of Mexico. The berms are meant to protect the Louisiana coastline from oil.
A news story based on prior experience about how the EPA and labor unions blocked efforts to avert the BP oil rig catastrophe. Some of you must read this to believe it.
Worst case? The methane bubble explodes, causing a tsunami that wipes out 80% of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida. Large portions of Texas are also destroyed. The Gulf islands and Mexico will be in the same boat.
“They’re paying all these boats to run around like headless chickens,” Taylor said, as reporters gathered to hear his assessment of the Sound.
In the case of a hurricane hitting the 250-mile wide slick and pushing it over sand dunes and into beach towns, residents fear they’ll face not only mass evacuations, but potential permanent relocation.
In what has to be one of the most disgraceful examples of political, unscientific attacks, the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences published a report, “Expert credibility in climate change,” alleging to show that climate change “denier
Weather forecasters had earlier said the storm by next week could head for the site of the huge oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico unleashed by the April 20 explosion of the BP-leased Deepwater Horizon rig.
It was treated as an oddball twist in the otherwise wrenching saga of the BP oil spill when Kevin Costner stepped forward to promote a device he said could work wonders in containing the spill's damage. Marks a major breakthrough in spill cleanup tec
The Army got stuck with millions and millions of rounds of costly tungsten-based ammo that it has been ordered to not use in the U.S. for fear it poisons water sources. Solution? Expend it on the enemy.
"We're going to have to evacuate the gulf states," said Matt Simmons, founder of Simmons and Co., the unflagging source of end-of-the-world predictions. "Can you imagine evacuating 20 million people? . . . This story is 80 times worse than I thought.
A leaky truck filled with oil-stained sand and absorbent boom soaked in crude pulls away from the beach, leaving tar balls in a public parking lot and a messy trail of sand and water on the main beach road. A few miles away, brown liquid drips out of
It may be a prank -- or it may be raining oil in Louisiana. A videotape posted on the Russia Today news site shows an amateur cameraman filming oil-slicked streets in River Ridge, a suburb of New Orleans.
A cap was back in place on BP's broken oil well in the Gulf of Mexico after a deep-sea blunder forced crews to temporarily remove what has been the most effective method so far for containing some of the massive spill.
Video. Biologists told ABC News that the entire food chain had been disrupted -- partly from the mass of oil and partly because the oil has sapped the water of oxygen. "What we're really witnessing may be a shift in the whole ecosystem feeding...
As much as 1 million times the normal level of methane gas has been found in some regions near the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, enough to potentially deplete oxygen and create a dead zone, U.S. scientists said on Tuesday.
Russia Today has filmed Louisiana residents who insist it is raining oil on their town. The reports shows puddles with an oily shine and claims there is an oily smell.
The containment cap was removed after collision with an underwater robot. The flow has increased wildly, as you can see in the live cam.
Nightmare scenarios regarding the underwater oil have been proposed by various scientists. Oil plumes could increase the methane level to poisonous levels. Oil plumes might even increase ocean pressure and cause tsunamis.
It has been estimated by experts that the pressure which blows the oil into the Gulf waters is estimated to be between 20,000 and 70,000 PSI (pounds per square inch). Impossible to control. What US Scientists Are Forbidden To Tell The Public A
Disturbing evidence is mounting that something frightening is happening deep under the waters of the Gulf of Mexico—something far worse than the BP oil gusher. Warnings were raised as long as a year before the Deepwater Horizon disaster that the a
