Doomsday: How BP Gulf disaster may have triggered a 'world-killing' event


by Terrence Aym


Ominous reports are leaking past the BP Gulf salvage operation news blackout that the disaster unfolding in the Gulf of Mexico may be about to reach biblical proportions.

251 million years ago a mammoth undersea methane bubble caused massive explosions, poisoned the atmosphere and destroyed more than 96 percent of all life on Earth. [1] Experts agree that what is known as the Permian extinction event was the greatest mass extinction event in the history of the world. [2]



55 million years later another methane bubble ruptured causing more mass extinctions during the Late Paleocene Thermal Maximum (LPTM).

The LPTM lasted 100,000 years. [3]

Those subterranean seas of methane virtually reshaped the planet when they explosively blew from deep beneath the waters of what is today called the Gulf of Mexico.

Now, worried scientists are increasingly concerned the same series of catastrophic events that led to worldwide death back then may be happening again-and no known technology can stop it.

The bottom line: BP’s Deepwater Horizon drilling operation may have triggered an irreversible, cascading geological Apocalypse that will culminate with the first mass extinction of life on Earth in many millions of years.

The oil giant drilled down miles into a geologically unstable region and may have set the stage for the eventual premature release of a methane mega-bubble.

Ryskin’s methane extinction theory

Northwestern University's Gregory Ryskin, a bio-chemical engineer, has a theory: The oceans periodically produce massive eruptions of explosive methane gas. He has documented the scientific evidence that such an event was directly responsible for the mass extinctions that occurred 55 million years ago. [4]

Many geologists concur: "The consequences of a methane-driven oceanic eruption for marine and terrestrial life are likely to be catastrophic. Figuratively speaking, the erupting region "boils over," ejecting a large amount of methane and other gases (e.g., CO2, H2S) into the atmosphere, and flooding large areas of land. Whereas pure methane is lighter than air, methane loaded with water droplets is much heavier, and thus spreads over the land, mixing with air in the process (and losing water as rain). The air-methane mixture is explosive at methane concentrations between 5% and 15%; as such mixtures form in different locations near the ground and are ignited by lightning, explosions and conflagrations destroy most of the terrestrial life, and also produce great amounts of smoke and of carbon dioxide..." [5]

The warning signs of an impending planetary catastrophe—of such great magnitude that the human mind has difficulty grasping it-would be the appearance of large fissures or rifts splitting open the ocean floor, a rise in the elevation of the seabed, and the massive venting of methane and other gases into the surrounding water.

Such occurrences can lead to the rupture of the methane bubble containment—it can then permit the methane to breach the subterranean depths and undergo an explosive decompression as it catapults into the Gulf waters. [6]

All three warning signs are documented to be occurring in the Gulf.

Ground zero: The Gulf Coast

The people and property located on the greater expanse of the Gulf Coast are sitting at Ground Zero. They will be the first exposed to poisonous, cancer causing chemical gases. They will be the ones that initially experience the full fury of a methane bubble exploding from the ruptured seabed.

The media has been kept away from the emergency salvage measures being taken to forestall the biggest catastrophe in human history. The federal government has warned them away from the epicenter of operations with the threat of a $40,000 fine for each infraction and the possibility of felony arrests.

Why is the press being kept away? Word is that the disaster is escalating.

Cracks and bulges

Methane is now streaming through the porous, rocky seabed at an accelerated rate and gushing from the borehole of the first relief well. The EPA is on record that Rig #1 is releasing methane, benzene, hydrogen sulfide and other toxic gases. Workers there now wear advanced protection including state-of-the-art, military-issued gas masks.

Reports, filtering through from oceanologists and salvage workers in the region, state that the upper level strata of the ocean floor is succumbing to greater and greater pressure. That pressure is causing a huge expanse of the seabed-estimated by some as spreading over thousands of square miles surrounding the BP wellhead-to bulge. Some claim the seabed in the region has risen an astounding 30 feet.

The fractured BP wellhead, site of the former Deepwater Horizon, has become the epicenter of frenetic attempts to quell the monstrous flow of methane.

The subterranean methane is pressurized at 100,000 pounds psi. According to Matt Simmons, an oil industry expert, the methane pressure at the wellhead has now skyrocketed to a terrifying 40,000 pounds psi.

Another well-respected expert, Dr. John Kessler of Texas A&M University has calculated that the ruptured well is spewing 60 percent oil and 40 percent methane. The normal methane amount that escapes from a compromised well is about 5 percent.

More evidence? A huge gash on the ocean floor—like a ragged wound hundreds of feet long—has been reported by the NOAA research ship, Thomas Jefferson. Before the curtain of the government enforced news blackout again descended abruptly, scientists aboard the ship voiced their concerns that the widening rift may go down miles into the earth.

That gash too is hemorrhaging oil and methane. It’s 10 miles away from the BP epicenter. Other, new fissures, have been spotted as far as 30 miles distant.

Measurements of the multiple oil plumes now appearing miles from the wellhead indicate that as much as a total of 124,000 barrels of oil are erupting into the Gulf waters daily-that’s about 5,208,000 gallons of oil per day.

Most disturbing of all: Methane levels in the water are now calculated as being almost one million times higher than normal. [7]

Mass death on the water

If the methane bubble—a bubble that could be as big as 20 miles wide—erupts with titanic force from the seabed into the Gulf, every ship, drilling rig and structure within the region of the bubble will immediately sink. All the workers, engineers, Coast Guard personnel and marine biologists participating in the salvage operation will die instantly.

Next, the ocean bottom will collapse, instantaneously displacing up to a trillion cubic feet of water or more and creating a towering supersonic tsunami annihilating everything along the coast and well inland. Like a thermonuclear blast, a high pressure atmospheric wave could precede the tidal wave flattening everything in its path before the water arrives.

When the roaring tsunami does arrive it will scrub away all that is left.

A chemical cocktail of poisons

Some environmentalist experts are calling what’s pouring into the land, sea and air from the seabed breach ’a chemical cocktail of poisons.’

Areas of dead zones devoid of oxygen are driving species of fish into foreign waters, killing plankton and other tiny sea life that are the foundation for the entire food chain, and polluting the air with cancer-causing chemicals and poisonous rainfalls.

A report from one observer in South Carolina documents oily residue left behind after a recent thunderstorm. And before the news blackout fully descended the EPA released data that benzene levels in New Orleans had rocketed to 3,000 parts per billion.

Benzene is extremely toxic and even short term exposure can cause agonizing death from cancerous lesions years later.

The people of Louisiana have been exposed for more than two months—and the benzene levels may be much higher now. The EPA measurement was taken in early May. [8]

Doomsday

While some say it can’t happen because the bulk of the methane is frozen into crystalline form, others point out that the underground methane sea is gradually melting from the nearby surging oil that’s estimated to be as hot as 500 degrees Fahrenheit.

Most experts in the know, however, agree that if the world-changing event does occur it will happen suddenly and within the next 6 months.

So, if events go against Mankind and the bubble bursts in the coming months, Gregory Ryskin may become one of the most famous people in the world. Of course, he won't have long to enjoy his new found fame because very shortly after the methane eruption civilization will collapse.

Perhaps if humanity is very, very lucky, some may find a way to avoid the mass extinction that follows and carry on the human race.

Perhaps.

Why BP is Readying a 'Super Weapon' to Avert Escalating Gulf Nightmare


While the plan would admittedly only be executed if a worst case scenario seemed imminent, some geo-chemists have expressed concerns that detonating a nuke in the Gulf might ignite the methane.
(CHICAGO) - In a desperate attempt to stop a huge area of the Gulf ocean floor from possibly rupturing due to subterranean methane gas (leading to a calamity no human has ever seen) BP has ripped a page from science fiction books.
The giant oil company is now quietly preparing to test a small nuclear device in a frenzied rush against time to quell a cascading catastrophe. If successful they will have the capability to detonate a controlled fusion generated pulse.
While the world watches BP's attempt to contain the oil gusher at the former Deepwater Horizon site, company officials have given the green light on an astounding plan to use what is known as a nuclear EPFCG charge if all else fails.
Sea floor compromised
Reports still indicate that methane is flooding the Gulf waters at a rate one million times more than normal, and the NOAA research vessel, Thomas Jefferson has reported spotting new fissures. [1]
Last week the science ship stunned some reporters with the revelation that the oceanographic team had discovered and measured a rift in the ocean floor miles from the BP wellhead. The rift was reported to be more than 100 feet long and widening. Oil and methane continues to plume from that rift.
BP has also admitted damage beneath the sea floor. [2]
The Omega plan
Most enterprises—whether business, government, or exploration—have a Plan B to fall back on. To date, BP has attempted Plans B through N. Yet it is the last ditch plan-the Omega plan-that hold the greatest risk. Yet that plan may be the final hope to stop what some insiders now consider a catastrophe that could culminate with a world-killing mass extinction event that modern civilization could not survive.
At a super-secret security base-CFB Suffield-located in southern Alberta, Canada, area reports indicate that high level engineers, physicists and military scientists are feverishly working to complete an ‘explosively pumped flux compression generator’ (EPFCG).
According to published scientific papers [see sources below] an EPFCG generator can be powered by a very small, controlled fusion explosion-in other words, a tiny nuclear bomb.
Why the UK based BP has set up operations at CFB-Suffield is obvious: The company already runs three oil rigs on the base, have worked with Canada’s chemical and biological efforts on and off for almost 40 years, and have strong ties to the Commonwealth’s infrastructure.
The CFB Base, which incorporates DRDC Suffield, is one of research six Canadian military facilities and critical to the security of the country. DRDC Suffield is the lead facility for all of Canada’s engineering and weapons systems R&D.
The EPFCG—a Star Wars super weapon
A device that can only be used once, the EPFCG generates a high power electromagnetic pulse. It achieves this by using a powerful explosive, preferably nuclear. Advanced, nuclear driven EPFCGs can instantaneously create up to billions of amperes and hundreds of terawatts. Such raw power exceeds lighting bolts by huge orders of magnitude.
The pulse can be shaped and directed and used to knock out electronics-or more importantly in this case—to fuse virtually any material—including crumbling rock strata deep under the sea. The fantastically energized pulse can also compress objects to very high pressures and densities. [3]
According to engineers familiar with the technology, the devices can generate plasma arcs hotter than the surface of the sun that will melt and fuse materials in nanoseconds.
A special security force manned by members of AEGIS, a UK based paramilitary security corporation similar to the old US Blackwater Security company, is reported to have cordoned off the base. The security lid has clamped down hard while the engineers and scientists work with the nuclear materials.
BP’s secret Omega Plan kicked off in earnest on July 7th, 2010. According to sources on the base the British Geological Survey (BGS), the United States Geological Survey (USGS), BP and Halliburton have set up a test site at one of the drill rigs.
While the plan would admittedly only be executed if a worst case scenario seemed imminent, some geo-chemists have expressed concerns that detonating an EPFCG in the Gulf might ignite the methane.
Meanwhile the preparations for the test continue in Canada.

NATO Orders Canadian Troops To US As ‘Super Weapon’ Prepared To End Gulf Oil Spill
By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers


New reports circulating in the Kremlin today prepared for Prime Minister Putin by the foreign military intelligence directorate (GRU) state that NATO’s Chairman of the Military Committee Admiral Giampaolo Di Paola has ordered  2,400 Canadian Military Forces to prepare for deployment in the United States oil stricken Gulf Coast region.
As we had previously reported on in our July 4th report “NATO Orders All “Critical Assets” Moved 100 Miles Inland From Gulf Oil Spill Region”, Admiral Di Paola has taken defacto control from President Obama over this historic catastrophe over fears the American leader and his elite allies were using this disaster to reap untold billions in profits, and we had, likewise, reported on in our June 16th report “Obama To Earn Nearly $85 Million From Gulf Oil Disaster”.
Admiral Di Paola’s ordered movement of these Canadian Military Forces follows his ordering of 7,000 US Marines to the Central American Nation of Costa Rica so as to have a better positioning of troops on both sides of the Gulf of Mexico should further disasters occur, and as we had also previously reported on in our July 8th report “NATO Orders 7,000 US Marines To Costa Rica As Gulf Oil Disaster Quake Fears Grow”.
These latest moves by NATO of its forces in response to this catastrophe are occurring at the same time that BP is announcing it has successfully attached a new cap on their leaking deepwater oil well and is preparing to test it in what it says is an effort that will “effectively” shut it.
These reports, however, state that BP’s new capping of this well, and if successful, would stem very little of the oil and methane gas escaping into the Gulf and appears designed as a “gimmick” to fool the American public and keep their attention diverted from the actual location of this spill which is coming from the fractured seafloor itself, and as we had previously reported on in our June 10th report “Scientists Warn Gulf Of Mexico Sea Floor Fractured “Beyond Repair”.
To BP’s truer plan to stop this catastrophe through the use of a ‘Super Weapon’ we can read as reported by the Salem News Service, and which, in part, says:
Not being realized by the American public about this massive oil leak is that when this well exploded it destroyed all of the piping leaving nothing for BP to seal, and as reluctantly admitted this past Friday by US Coast Guard Admiral (Ret.) Thad Allen who was appointed by Obama as the National Incident Commander for this disaster.
The effects upon the Gulf of Mexico from the unstrained release of oil and methane gas, as well as the toxic dispersant being used by BP, can only be described in the most apocalyptic terms after US scientists reported this week that it is becoming what they term a “Dead Zone” killing everything it touches not able to flee.
Reports from this region are also painting a grim picture of the effects of this spill upon Gulf regions human population, especially those American workers hired by BP to cleanup oil stained beaches and marsh lands exposed to the dispersement chemical 2-butoxyethanol that has been detected at levels up to 10 parts per million (ppm) in more than 20 percent of offshore responders and 15 percent of those near shore.
And as concerns grow over the potentially catastrophic death toll that could arise from this disaster, new reports from the US are stating that within the past 72 hours American Military forces have begun moving into the affected areas and setting up roadblocks and terrifying the people who live there.
Unfortunately for the American people they have not been allowed to know the full scale of this catastrophe due to their government suppressing the news about what has been happening by barring reporters from getting near the spill or the affected beaches.  So enraged were the US media about this ban on reporting it caused Admiral (Ret.) Allen to rescind it yesterday.
But to the worst potential outcome of this disaster we note a warning being sounded by a bio-chemical engineer named Gregory Ryskin from the United States’ Northwestern University's who states that BP’s Deepwater Horizon drilling operation may have triggered an irreversible, cascading geological apocalypse that will culminate with the first mass extinction of life on Earth in many millions of years.
According to Ryskin, the oil giant BP drilled down miles into a geologically unstable region and may have set the stage for the eventual premature release of a methane mega-bubble that has worried scientists due to their concern that the same series of catastrophic events that led to Worldwide death in the past may be happening again-and no known technology can stop it.
Important to note in all of these events is this disaster being used by  powerful elite forces to prepare the American people for a World they no nothing about but will, beyond all doubt, see them reduced to nothing more than debt-slaves as the rich and powerful continue their raping of the US economy and the destruction of their environment.
One surely wonders these days when these people will ever awaken from their long slumber to realize that their once sought after “American Dream” has turned into an “American Nightmare”, all occurring as these same people neglected to remember one of the most time-honored and fundamental facts of human existence, that the future for our children rests in what we do today, and, perhaps, best articulated by the great American Revolutionary War Patriot Thomas Paine who said, “If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace.”
Today in a very troubled America her children call out for that peace, one can only hope that their parents are listening.

  1. so they now have capped the well...... And if the caps holds and the cleanup can really get underway ... what then? You really trust BP to tell the truth about the real devastation?

    It is reported that scientists are being offered $250.00 per hour by BP, if they will simply sign on the dotted line, and keep silent about their work and findings for at least the next three years. Traitor? such a strong word "Judas" .... you choose....
