BP Gulf Oil Spill Revisited
Corexit Plus Oil Is A Continuing Threat, Says Gulf Rescue Alliance
Sunday, April 22nd is not only Earth Day, it also marks the 2nd anniversary of the unprecedented Macondo Prospect oil gusher into the Gulf of Mexico (GOM) which began the infamous BP Gulf Oil Spill – a triggered geological anomaly separate from the Deepwater Horizon disaster on 20 April 2010.
The Gulf Rescue Alliance (GRA) has published “DEEPWATER UNKNOWNS -TWO YEARS AFTER” in observance of this day unearthing new details about this oil spill event. This extraordinarily revealing account is set against “a backdrop of recently published scientific studies indicating sick and dying dolphins, coral and other sea life; bacteria laden tar balls washing onto beaches, an intoxicated Gulf food chain and a Macondo geohazard risk zone over a mile below the surface that some experts say has the potential of releasing toxic gas and oil into the Gulf of Mexico for the next 25 years.”
There has been a wave of articles recently published detailing the many health problems and medical concerns which both government and industry have yet to acknowledge. Many of these studies point out the obvious; that when you mix a tremendous volume of released oil with methane gas and further mix it with a toxic dispersant like Corexit, as they have done throughout this oil spill, a chemical cocktail is created that will have as far-reaching ecological ramifications as it will profound environmental consequences.

Digging Under the Macondo Tombstones
By Gulf Rescue Alliance
As of April 20, 2012âthe 2nd Anniversary of the Deepwater Horizon Disaster — we have a backdrop of recently published scientific studies[i] indicating sick and dying dolphins, coral and other sea life; bacteria laden tar balls washing onto beaches, an intoxicated Gulf food chain and a Macondo geohazard risk zone over a mile below the surface that some experts say has the potential of releasing toxic gas and oil into the Gulf of Mexico for the next 25 years.Â Behind this deepwater curtain, there are still many unknowns about the BP Oil Spill events and response.
While a federal trial is still pending and BP settlement talks with the Department of Justice and other stakeholders are on-going, the public are still waiting for a revelation to settle the many open questions associated with the largest oil spill in history.
One unexplained fact generally not known is that oil did not begin to spill into the Gulf of Mexico until 22 April, coincidently and squarely on Earth Day.Â The large quantities from the Macondo Reservoir only began spewing into the Gulf after several unexplained detonated explosions. Â The explosions leave open questions since the top well blow out that killed the 11 men was brought under control. Â Continue reading
Conclusive Evidence That BP Misrepresented Gulf Oil Spill Sent to Congress
Gulf Rescue Alliance (GRA) has just sent a briefing package to the Attorney Generals of Alabama and Louisiana which presents evidence they believe has never seen the light of day concerning the how and why of the Deepwater Horizon Disaster and subsequent release of toxic oil into the Gulfâoil that is still gushing from various seabed fractures and fissures.
The evidence provided therein clearly indicates:
â¢ The unmentioned existence of a 3rd Macondo well (the real source of the explosion, DWH sinking and ensuing oil spill)
â¢ The current condition of this well being such that it can never be properly capped.
â¢ The compromised condition of the seabed floor being such that there are multiple unnatural sources of gushers continuing to pour into the Gulf, with Corexit dispersant still suppressing its visibility
â¢ That the highly publicized capped well (Well A) never occurred as reported, and in fact was an abandoned well, hence it was never the source of the millions of gallons released into the Gulf.
GRAâs special report (a comprehensive compilation of research released by insiders and experts through confidential internet sources) has been forwarded to Congress in advance of BP’s upcoming trial on Monday, February 27th in New Orleans, LA. Â EntitledÂ An Expertâs Analysis of ROV Film Footage Taken at the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Disaster Site, it has also been submitted to the appropriate federal, state and county authorities, plaintiff attorneys, and environmental and health advocacy groups who have a stake in the outcome of the trial.

A Special Report on the BP Gulf Oil Spill
By Dr. Tom Termotto
It is with deep regret that we publish this report.Â We do not take this responsibility lightly, as the consequences of the following observations are of such great import and have such far-reaching ramifications for the entire planet.Â Truly, the fate of the oceans of the world hangs in the balance, as does the future of humankind.
The Gulf of Mexico (GOM) does not exist in isolation and is, in fact, connected to the Seven Seas.Â Hence, we publish these findings in order that the world community will come together to further contemplate this dire and demanding predicament.Â We also do so with the hope that an appropriate global response will be formulated, and acted upon, for the sake of future generations.Â It is the most basic responsibility for every civilization to leave their world in a better condition than that which they inherited from their forbears.
After conducting the Gulf Oil Spill Remediation Conference for over seven months, we can now disseminate the following information with the authority and confidence of those who have thoroughly investigated aÂ crime scene.Â There are many research articles, investigative reports and penetrating exposes archived at the following website.Â Particularly those posted from August through November provide a unique body of evidence, many with compelling photo-documentaries, which portray the true state of affairs at the Macondo Prospect in the GOM.

âJournalistsâ Ian Crane & Deborah Dupre destroy Gulf citizensâ movement
By Sheila Samarski
Just who is Ian R. Crane and why does he, together with the Gulf Coast Barefoot Doctors, persist in destroying the Gulf Oil Spill citizensâ movement?Â Why does a Britisher suddenly appear on the scene of the greatest environmental catastrophe in US history hawking his wares and conspiracies?
After many months of investigation of this British citizen â Ian R. Crane â we can report the following facts about his business, his mission and his ‘journalistic’ practice where it concerns the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico (GOM).
It is very important to note that this foreign âjournalistâ lives in the United Kingdom not too far from London, admits to being an ex-Shlumberger oilman, and makes his money from selling internet conspiracy theory (which may be true or false) about the Gulf oil spill.Â The point is that this is how he earns his income, by selling videos that purport to explain away all things related to the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill.
The following headline has appeared on many of the internetâs alternative news sites over the past 6 months:
The Gulf Oil Spill Remediation Conference, an 11 month-old International Citizensâ Initiative, is filing criminal charges in Tallahassee, FL against Ian Crane, a former Schlumberger oil executive.Â The GOSRC has forwarded the original email to authorities in which Crane admitted to taping the former National Coordinator without his knowledge or consent.Â Craneâs subsequent suspicious actions and dubious correspondence concerning the Gulf Oil Spill have caused many throughout the GOM citizenâs movement to question his motives and agenda, and therefore compel us to file these charges.
Ian Crane currently poses as an advocate of sorts whereby he often places the full responsibility of the BP Gulf Oil Spill at the feet of BP’s Robert Kaluza. Crane’s former employer, Schlumberger, the worldâs largest oilfield services company that worked on the Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico, “says its crew left the Horizon on the day of the fire”. As an ex-oilman, Crane has adopted a pattern of behavior in which many sincere Gulf advocates, who do not wholeheartedly join his cause, have become subjected to completely untrue and unwarranted derogatory statements, as well as a continuing barrage of ad hominem attacks. Â Continue reading
Many have been asking about the current state of the previously gushing BP Oil Well at the Macondo Prospect in the Gulf of Mexico. The following questions have been coming fast and furiously since the well was capped.
Is it still leaking at the wellhead? Has the wellhead been pierced? Are there other wells leaking in the region?
Are there methane seeps in the area around the well? Are there other leaks in the area coming from this well?
Has the well been breached? Is it beyond repair? How deep are the leaks and breaches?
Has the well-casing been compromised? Has the well-bore lost its integrity? Did the methane explosion undermine the foundation of the wellhead?
Why was the cementing plan not executed according to industry SOP’s? Has the pressure (high psi) forced effluent through cracks and fissures in the cement?
Is BP considering a nuclear option?! Are the relief wells about this? If so, what are the potential consequences should BP execute such a plan?
What is the purpose of the upcoming top kill operation by BP, and will it work? What is the likelihood of success of the relief wells?
What are the prospects of this well ever being permanently sealed? Should BP have ever drilled this well in the first place? Why has so much gone wrong with the entire process of drilling, and then capping this seemingly untamable oil gusher? Â Continue reading
The BP Gulf Oil Spill: An Historic Failure of Government and Industry; A Tragic Violation of the Public Trust and Social Contract

For all of us who live on and near the Gulf Coast of Mexico, we exist in a state that alternates between exasperation and incredulity, between anger and grief, between shock and awe at what this oil spill has come to represent.Â Â Where do we start?Â Â How do we begin to express our collective disillusionment with so many instances of betrayal and letdown?Â Â As well as the relentless falling short of what used to be considered reasonable expectations of government and corporate social responsibility.
Is it unreasonable to expect our governments â federal, state, county â to ensure that industry (Oil & Gas in this case) complies with the laws of our land.Â Should we be concerned that basic regulatory oversight, put into place to protect people, property and environment, was completely ignored, suspended and not enforced?Â Do we accept that such disasters occur through a highly unlikely series of human errors, bureaucratic mistakes, equipment malfunctions and technological breakdowns?Â How can everything go wrong, at the worst possible time, in the perfectly wrong place, unless â¦ â¦ â¦
