Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Gulf Oil Spill Reaches Mouth of Mississippi River

Fire-Earth Expects the Gulf Coast Damage to Dwarf Exxon Valdez Disaster

“It is of grave concern,” David Kennedy of NOAA told AP.

“I am frightened. This is a very, very big thing. And the efforts that are going to be required to do anything about it, especially if it continues on, are just mind-boggling.”

The oil slick is threatening hundreds of species of fish, marine animals, birds and other wildlife in the Gulf of Mexico and on the shorelines of the Gulf  States.

The crude oil spill also threatens the livelihood of many million of people directly and indirectly. The Gulf Coast is one of the planet’s richest seafood grounds for oysters, shrimps and many other marine species.

Cade Thomas, a fishing guide in Venice, whose livelihood depends on oil-free waters, said he was not sure who the blame, the Coast Guard, the federal government or  BP, the oil company who owns the well.

“They lied to us. They came out and said it was leaking 1,000 barrels when I think they knew it was more. And they weren’t proactive. As soon as it blew up, they should have started wrapping it with booms.” He said.

On April 24, Fire-Earth Moderators said: “… oil wells gushing at a rate of 8,000 barrels per day don’t heal automatically after a fire.”

Meanwhile, Bubbly Jindal, Louisiana Gov., declared a state of emergency on Thursday.
