I will, unlike our government, get right to the "meat" of the situation. There is emerging evidence that the oil spill crisis in the Gulf, as large and unbelievably disasterous as has already been reported, is far, far worse than the public, and maybe even the U. S. government, is being told. What I am about to tell you comes to me from a very reliable source that is directly involved with offshore oil and gas exploration. He lives in Houston, and has been in the industry for over 30 yrs. and holds several degrees in engineering. I met him some years ago at a water treatment symposium being held in Houston. He was there to investigate the newest technology in desalination which is a must for providing fresh water for those working on offshore oil platforms. He must remain anonymous for the sake of his job and perhaps his own safety and that of his family. Here is what he apprised me of. First of all, the amount of oil gushing into the Gulf per day has been grossly under-reported from the very beginning of the disaster. We have all heard rumors and reports alluding to this, but he confirmed that such is true. Also, that despite efforts to contain the flow, as of today it still is gushing 2 1/2 million gallons every twenty four hours! That means in the time it will take to compose this letter, approximately 300,000 gallons more have spewed into our oceans! But that is not the worst of it. There is compelling evidence emerging that the attempts to cap and/or plug the well has caused the sea floor to develop cracks, some of which are miles away from the well, and that they are leaking oil. As this is occurring it is opening these cracks up wider and wider, due to the fact that huge gas deposits around the oil is under an unbelievable 70,000 psi of pressure! As the oil is leaving at such a fast volume the compressed gas expands too rapidly causing a complete collapse of equalibrium, which is critical to the sea floors' structural integrity. According to data gathered through much hands-on research and exact field measurements, much of the sea floor in the Gulf is thin and therefore fragile. He likened it to what is called the pelvic floor in a human. It is quite thin and only maintains its' integrity through the strength of the vertical bones on right and left sides, and an equalization of pressure from each side of the pelvic floor. Therefore, if either of these bones are broken or if something strikes or worse yet, pierces this floor, the results can be, and usually are, catastrophic. Equalization is lost and cracks quickly develop that allows some serious bacteria to enter the lower digestive system, which also involves the kidneys, liver and pancreas. The result is a systemic infection that can ultimately and rather quickly, kill the patient. We all are aware of people dying after breaking their pelvis. It is usually not the fall that kills them, it is the infection that sets in. Think about it. If simply breaking a bone almost always led to death, then most of us wouldn't be here!
There is much more to my conversation with my friend, but I will stop here, at least concerning it. Folks, what we are "discovering" is that the earth is only completely healthy as long as all of its' anatomy is intact and all if its' "parts" are working in harmony, just like our own bodies But, just like the human body, it has very vulnerable areas that once damaged, can lead to an irreversible domino effect that no amount of "antibiotics" or "operations" can fix. Exactly like a systemic infection. If you have any doubt of its' severity, ask any doctor. If even little as 20% of our oceans are poisoned in the manner that is occurring as you read this, we are toast! A good portion of the world's population will perish just from the death of the sea life that is their only means of obtaining protein. That is not to mention the destruction of plant life in these regions. And, even on a perhaps larger scale, inland areas will begin to suffer on a scale not seen since the dust bowl of the 1930s. Water picked up from the oceans is desalinated through the natural processes of the atmosphere, and then released inland in the form of precipitation, except now full of deadly contaminates, much of which will be converted into acid rain. Need I say more! This is without the added devastating effects of the algae and plankton dying immediately upon contact with petroleum of any kind. These organisms not only remove huge amounts carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and greatly help control global temperature, but create tremendous amounts of oxygen quite necessary for life on this planet! Furthermore, the salination level and the density of the water in our oceans is critical to its' ability to function and maintain not only its' temperature, but everything that lives in them. Both will be destroyed by the introduction of this amount of oil if not stopped, and soon!
Believe me, I could go on and write a book on the further domino effect of this disaster which is already nearing Biblical proportions. For instance, the effects on world -wide weather. An arch-enemy could not have chosen a better place to attack!! But I will use some constraint and stop here. Just because nearly all who will receive this email don't live on or near the coast of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama or Florida, please don't just blow this terrible tragedy and all its' implications, off !! This letter and its' contents are not meant to scare you, but to inform you and give you enough information ahead of time for you to make some preparations for what could be ahead if we aren't able to stop these so called "leaks" soon( if you call refer to oil gushing at such an incredible hourly rate, a leak!). One thing we do know at this point with any doubt whatsoever is that we have already done tremendous damage that will have tragic effects for years, and most likely for even decades to come. That being said, how far do you have to stretch your imagination to see clearly what lies ahead if this continues much longer? Let's not be like five foolish virgins in the Bible( Matthew 25--look it up!). The clock is ticking, and loudly.
Written With Much Thought And Sincerity,
