i warned you last night

[click image]


There are all these wild theories about scalar technologies, weaponized torsion physics, whatever the heck we're calling it/them, and it seems that just about all of them are now rounded up in Hoagland's updated last paper about the Norway Spiral... and so much more.... If you missed it before, a hard skim all the way down the page will blow yer mind... and even if you saw it before, it's much more now, you don't wanna miss about the Klingon War Bird, and, well, it's probably actually stranger even than this!


Here's another Lindsey Williams interview about the toxic gasses in the Gulf. It's creepin' me out because he's talking about the same nukes pros and cons I was just imagining back and forth with BB2 down the page a ways. [1] A nuke is almost certainly our only option to stop it, but [2] if we mess up and collapse the strata down there, it will never stop. The other day, a local ship captain who has been working as a contractor for BP walked out to the flying bridge in front of his crew and shot himself in the head. And I only just got through the first of the four segments in the playlist.

More really lovely discussion of the problem:
How the ultimate BP Gulf disaster could kill millions
by Terrence Aym

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 area of seabed chosen by the BP geologists might be unstable, or worse, inherently dangerous.

What makes the location that Transocean chose potentially far riskier than other potential oil deposits located at other regions of the Gulf? It can be summed up with two words: methane gas.

The same methane that makes coal mining operations hazardous and leads to horrendous mining accidents deep under the earth also can present a high level of danger to certain oil exploration ventures.

Location of Deepwater Horizon oil rig was criticized

More than 12 months ago some geologists rang the warning bell that the Deepwater Horizon exploratory rig might have been erected directly over a huge underground reservoir of methane.

Documents from several years ago indicate that the subterranean geologic formation may contain the presence of a huge methane deposit.

None other than the engineer who helped lead the team to snuff the Gulf oil fires set by Saddam Hussein to slow the advance of American troops has stated that a huge underground lake of methane gas—compressed by a pressure of 100,000 pounds per square inch (psi)—could be released by BP's drilling effort to obtain the oil deposit.

Current engineering technology cannot contain gas that is pressurized to 100,000 psi.

By some geologists' estimates the methane could be a massive 15 to 20 mile toxic and explosive bubble trapped for eons under the Gulf sea floor. In their opinion, the explosive destruction of the Deepwater Horizon wellhead was an accident just waiting to happen.

Yet the disaster that followed the loss of the rig pales by comparison to the apocalyptic disaster that may come.

A cascading catastrophe

According to worried geologists, the first signs that the methane may burst its way through the bottom of the ocean would be fissures or cracks appearing on the ocean floor near the damaged well head.

Evidence of fissures opening up on the seabed have been captured by the robotic submersibles working to repair and contain the ruptured well. Smaller, independent plumes have also appeared outside the nearby radius of the bore hole itself.

According to some geological experts, BP's operations set into motion a series of events that may be irreversible. Step-by-step the drilling team committed one error after another.

Congressmen Henry Waxman, D-CA, and Bart Stupak, D-MI, in a letter sent to BP CEO Tony Hayward, identified 5 missteps made by BP during the period culminating with the explosion.

Waxman, chair of the Congressional energy panel and Stupak, the head of the subcommittee on oversight and investigations, said, "The common feature of these five decisions is that they posed a trade-off between cost and well safety."

The two Representatives also stated in the 14-page letter to Hayward that "Time after time, it appears that BP made decisions that increased the risk of a blowout to save the company time or expense."

Called by some insiders investigating the ongoing disaster a "perfect storm of catastrophe," the wellhead blew on the sea floor catapulting a stream of mud, oil and gas upwards at the speed of sound.

In describing the events—that transpired in a matter of seconds—they note that immediately following the rupture the borehole pipe's casing blew away exposing a straight line 8 miles deep for the pressurized gas to escape. The result was cavitation, an irregular pressure variance sometimes experience by deep diving vessels such as nuclear submarines. This cavitation created a supersonic bubble of explosive methane gas that resulted in a supersonic explosion killing 11 men and completely annihilating the drilling platform.

Death from the depths

With the emerging evidence of fissures, the quiet fear now is the methane bubble rupturing the seabed and exploding into the Gulf waters. If the bubble escapes, every ship, drilling rig and structure within the region of the bubble will instantaneously sink. All the workers, engineers, Coast Guard personnel and marine biologists measuring the oil plumes' advance will instantly perish.

As horrible as that is, what would follow is an event so potentially horrific that it equals in its fury the Indonesian tsunami that killed more than 600,000, or the destruction of Pompeii by Mt. Vesuvius.

The ultimate Gulf disaster, however, would make even those historical horrors pale by comparison. If the huge methane bubble breaches the seabed, it will erupt with an explosive fury similar to that experienced during the eruption of Mt. Saint Helens in the Pacific Northwest. A gas gusher will surge upwards through miles of ancient sedimentary rock—layer after layer—past the oil reservoir. It will explode upwards propelled by 50 tons psi, burst through the cracks and fissures of the compromised sea floor, and rupture miles of ocean bottom with one titanic explosion.

The burgeoning methane gas cloud will surface, killing everything it touches, and set off a supersonic tsunami with the wave traveling somewhere between 400 to 600 miles per hour.

While the entire Gulf coastline is vulnerable, the state most exposed to the fury of a supersonic wave towering 150 to 200 feet or more is Florida. The Sunshine State only averages about 100 feet above sea level with much of the coastline and lowlands and swamps near zero elevation. [Elevation map] A supersonic tsunami would literally sweep away everything from Miami to the panhandle in a matter of minutes. Loss of human life would be virtually instantaneous and measured in the millions. Of course the states of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and southern region of Georgia—a state with no Gulf coastline—would also experience tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of casualties.

Loss of property is virtually incalculable and the days of the US position as the world's superpower would be literally gone in a flash...of detonating methane.

Report about the Late Paleocene Thermal Maximum (LPTM), which occurred around 55 million years ago and lasted about 100,000 years. Large undersea methane caused explosions and mass extinctions. This
Science Daily piece explores the controversial paper published by Northwestern University's Gregory Ryskin. His thesis: the oceans periodically produce massive eruptions of explosive methane gas.

I hope you've had yer coffee....


This guy does NOT think it was an accident.

I have to say I have moments when it crosses my mind that it wasn't, but any way you slice it, he has a point the size of Argentina about what must be done. But if Hoagland comes out with some kind of spiral or tetrahedral diagram relating to this apocalypse, I'm going to have to go screaming naked off a cliff.



  1. Salbuchi

    Interesting about the 9/11 "warnings" in 1990's movies, The Simpsons, etc.

  2. Yuh, I thought it was worth bringing him up for some of those interesting and/or salient bits. I love that the guy's out there swingin'....

  3. Yuh. I think "anthropozoic" will end up having been a florid-enough name for this epoch... but there probably won't be anyone around to call it that.

  4. When you think of Canada, which qualities come to mind? The world's peacekeeper, the friendly nation, a liberal counterweight to the harsher pieties of its southern neighbour, decent, civilised, fair, well-governed? Think again. This country's government is now behaving with all the sophistication of a chimpanzee's tea party.

    Tar Sands Link

  5. When I think of Canada, I think of Haida Gwaii first of all, but really all of B.C. and into Alberta with the Canadian Rockies, because I've been all over there and it makes me SCREAM with love. Then I think of White Horse, where I've never been but because that was the home of one of the foremost bodhisattvas who ever crossed my path. Then I think of how much I want to throw it all over for Nunavut and polar bears. In fact, things being as they are, I frequently think of going to Lakotah and convincing them to come with me to conquer Canada! My plan is to move all true humans to Canada, and all wasichu OUT.

    Since NO ONE will help me overturn the tyranny here... and I can't avoid seeing how karmic that is... I want to head an exodus, a wasichu-conquering exodus.

    You're either WITH me or AGAINST me.


  6. Google "Tar Island, Alberta"


  7. Which is WHY Canada needs me to conquer it and drive out the wasichu.

  8. The Northern Lights - we could see the Northern Lights!

    I miss them here - I could see them frequently during the winter in Steven's Point, Wisconsin. They didn't have all the exciting colors you get further north, but usually dull green or white.

    I've seen them once here - during an intense solar storm several years ago. The northern sky was glowing red in patches that grew and faded.

  9. I know I was aching for a driftwood beach house in Scotland for years and years after seeing Local Hero. Northern Lights would be most excellent. We could be in buffalo robes and leading baby polar bears around with us.

  10. We could just strap Rin's relatives to the dog sled.....

  11. That was weird - blogger kept adding img= to my code and then say http: was not allowed when I tried to post the comment.

    I had to try 4 times before it went!

  12. The first time I saw the northern lights I was about 5 years old. My three older siblings and I were outside one night in August playing hide-n-seek with kids in the neighbor hood. My brother pointed to the sky and hollered for us to look up. The sky looked like it was ON FIRE!!!

    The Aurora started out light green in the northern sky then stretched southward until it was directly overhead all the while adding red and blue hues as it moved.

    Even though I have seen them countless times since then. I will never forget that night I first saw them.

  13. I do NOT understand WHAT it is with you and Blogger! I have NEVER had any of these weird things happen. Only the occasional failure to actually post my comment until some astral shift or other and sometimes not taking the LENGTH of my post. It always takes the code it takes and never the code it doesn't. It's pretty consistently hunky-do when logged-in properly and never rises above momentarily vexing here.

    You MUST have yer browser loaded with plug-ins Blogger finds disagreeable in the extreme. I'm really smart, okay? EVEN when I'm dirt clueless I can give people, EXPERTS, ideas when they're stumped, but I do NOT seem to be able to see into your code hassles. I'm supposing that there's some post editor action coming up for you that does NOT come up for me on Safari... and that the ease I experience, since I type in my own code, is a FLUKE... OR yer browser's just SO out of it.

    I want your life on the tubes to be bliss.

    If you cannot have it walking around, you should have it here.

  14. Another danger from the oil leak...


  15. I want to live in yer barn, Doug!

    Can I? Can I? Pretty please....

  16. Oh, arsenic is EASY! Just drop old lace on it and carry on....

  17. DGP SAYS HE'LL GET ME A CLAWFOOT TUB! I've almost lost consciousness with desire...

    A TUB!

    Do you hear?

    And a REAL one! OMG! In Canada!

  18. Damn - he just may beat me to it!

  19. She Passed Out On Cary ! No Wonder . . . She's just discovered his favorite aunts have poisoned their 13th gentleman friend !

    Arsenic and old lace

  20. There's only one hitch 9s...
    You gotta lug it up the loft steps :p

  21. I'll send a block and tackle...

  22. Oh, man, I could probably float it up there with the force of my glee alone!

    I do PK really well when at some extreme of emotion, and clairvoyance really well when at an extreme of peacefulness... So the first gets the tub in the loft, no sweat, and the second saves all sentient Canadians!


  23. AND, yes, I plan to take a Martha and Abby Brewster approach to cleaning up oil disasters everywhere... just like BP and President GPY....

  24. You would like it here 99, I live directly North of Lakotah land, about 300 klms from South Dakota.
    Unfortunately, I will never cross that border again.

  25. Wait a minute - 300klms from South Dakota?

  26. Only 300? Are you sure that wasn't a typo? Could this ranch be 3000 miles from the border only wasichu should cross going south?

    300 would be closer to the polar bears anyway......

  27. Hey, wait! Isn't that outrageously borderlike? :o)

  28. That was my thought - like right on the border?

  29. I bet he meant 300 from the border. Anyway, it would be a nice straight shot up, however far, with the true humans to conquer wasichu... between baths....

  30. Yup, I live very close to the North Dakota border, about 75 klms as the crow flies. The farm I am looking at right now is about another 70 klms North east.

  31. I used to be a pretty good farm worker. Probably only good for the greenhouse now... since having my head bolted back on... but maybe I'd get back in shape....


  32. Turns out it's 500klms to South Dakota from my current location.


    No shortage of bears here, black ones that is... Have to go quite a jog further north to see the white ones.

  34. I'm big on black bears. Used to be my only neighbors... with the mountain lions. Maybe I could roll out of my tub and take a train to go visit the white ones.

  35. The crazy 'cross the street neighbors are starting their fireworks display, time to go out and watch for spot fires on our roof and in our trees!

  36. Not much aerial stuff tonight, lots of BIG fire crackers though. I could feel my glasses shaking on my face when they went off!

    They were bigger than cherry bombs for sure!
