Nightmare Plume and ‘Cozy Relationship’

Posted by feww on May 16, 2010

Wondered where all the oil spill was?

If you have been reading this blog, or listening to experts describing the daily ration of oil spewing into the Gulf as being much larger than reported by  NOAA, and jumped on by BP, you must have wondered what could have happened to the oil.

Wonder no more! Scientists have discovered  massive oil plumes in the Gulf including one measuring 10 miles by 3 miles by 300 feet thick, according to New York Times.

To put the measurement into some prospective, a plume measuring as described above would be very large, indeed, and supports our earlier estimates that the at least 25,000bpd of crude oil was gushing out of the ruptured pipe.

Meanwhile, BP admitted that its latest attempt to stop the leak, by threading a much narrower 6-in (15-cm) tube inside  a 21-inch (53-cm) riser-pipe, to funnel the oil to a vessel at the surface had failed.

A company spokesman said, they would try again.

Meanwhile, the British newspaper Guardian reported BP Chief Executive Tony Hayward  as saying that the size of the spill was “tiny” compared to how large the he Gulf of Mexico was.

Cozy Relationship Or Federal Felony

Readers would recall that President Barrack Obama declared that  the epoch of  “cozy relationship” between oil firms and US regulators was over.

“For too long, for a decade or more, there’s been a cozy relationship between the oil companies and the federal agency that permits them to drill,” Obama said.

“That cannot and will not happen anymore,” Obama added.…

What the President failed doing was to define the exact meaning of a “cozy relationship.” Was it about the oil executive and MMS officials sharing a joint together, swapping sexual partners and doing each other a few “harmless” favors, or was it about breaking the law and committing a federal felony?

Environmental group suing U.S. Govt over oil permits

The Center for Biological Diversity, an environmental group, has filed a notice of intent to sue Ken Salazar the U.S. Interior Secretary, and the Interior Department’s Minerals Management Service (MMS) for failing to get the necessary environmental permits, required by two environmental laws, the Marine Mammal Protection Act, and the Endangered Species Act, before approving offshore oil operations.

Note, the key words and phrases here are, “failing to get the necessary environmental permits,” the Endangered Species Act and “the Marine Mammal Protection Act.” and

“The Marine Mammal Protection Act and Endangered Species Act prohibit private entities, such as oil companies, as well as federal agencies, such as the Minerals Management Service — the branch of the Interior Department responsible for managing offshore oil activities — from killing, harming, or harassing marine mammals, unless they have received authorizations and take measures to minimize the impacts of their activities. The Endangered Species Act protects species such as the sperm whale, which is listed as endangered, while the Marine Mammal Protection Act applies to all marine mammals, such as the bottlenose dolphin and the Florida manatee.” The group said in their notice.

Lawsuit to Challenge Salazar’s Wholesale Disregard of Marine Mammal Protection Laws in Gulf of Mexico: 400-plus Oil Projects Illegally Approved by Salazar Without Permits to Harm Endangered Whales

Ongoing Risk of Deepwater Drilling

The fact remains however that there are at least 77 drilling rigs and commercially producing oil platforms operating in deep waters of Gulf of Mexico, and many more are slated to go on line.

Also, Fire-Earth Moderators forecast the probability of another major oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico between now and December 2011 at greater than 90 percent. SEE:

Airliner Fatalities: Boeing vs. Airbus  (2009 – 2010)

Fire-Earth has been trying to warn the blog readers against flying for the last two years. The moderators have also pointed out that the safety record of Airbus is worse than that of Boeing aircraft.

Below is  a summary of airliner crashes (Boeing and Airbus) which resulted in fatalities over the last 18 months:

  • February 25, 2009. Turkish Airlines Flight 1951, a Boeing 737-800 flying from Atatürk Airport in Istanbul to Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam crashed during final approach. Of the 134 people on board, 9 were killed and 85 injured.
  • June 1, 2009. Air France Flight 447, an Airbus A330-200 flying from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to Paris, France, crashed in the Atlantic Ocean killing all 228 people onboard.
  • June 30, 2009. Yemenia Flight 626, an Airbus A310-300 flying from Sana’a, Yemen to Moroni, Comoros, crashed in the Indian Ocean killing 152 onboard; a young boy survived.
  • January 25, 2010. Ethiopian Airlines Flight 409, a Boeing 737-800, crashed in the Mediterranean Sea shortly after take-off from Beirut Airport heading to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. All 90 people on-board were killed. [NOTE; Fire Earth believes the flight was shot down by Israeli military. However, the stats are included in the calculations.]
  • May 12, 2010. Afriqiyah Airways Flight 771, an Airbus A330, crashed on landing at Tripoli International Airport, killing 103 onboard; the sole survivor is 9-year-old child from the Netherlands who lost his parents and elder brother.

Approximate No. of Aircraft Currently Operational

Airbus: 5,558  []
Boeing 10,837 []

Number of Airliner Crashes Resulting in Fatalities (January 2009  to present)

  • Boeing: 2
  • Airbus: 3

[NOTE: About twice as many Boeing commercial aircraft are thought to be operational.]

Percentage of Fatalities  (overall average)

Boeing: 53.4 %
Airbus: 99.5 %

Other Airbus Crash Stats

On January 16, 2009 the Moderators warned: “If you really have to fly because your life depends on it [sic,] and if you are flying an Airbus, then fly on odd days of the month because the Airbus is statistically twice more likely to crash on even days!”

Google Information Suppression

YOU ARE proactively censoring, blocking and hiding vital information that could otherwise save lives!

Thousands of people are dying and many more receiving serious injuries throughout the world as a result of your corporate policies and censorship practice.

YOU ARE  suppressing important information from the public. By filtering, blocking and burying vital safety information posted on this and other blogs, YOU and YOUR COMPANY, Google, Inc.,  are preventing the potential victims from making informed decisions concerning their travel plans, modes of travel, activities, and where to visit or live. As a result, thousands of people are losing their lives and many more sustaining serious injuries.

How do you sleep at night knowing your corporation is responsible, at least implicated, for so many deaths and injuries

Ruben Van Assouw, 9, was the sole survivor of plane crash in Libya. His parents Patrick, 40, Trudy, 41, and his brother Enzo were among 103 people who were killed in the crash.  Image taken from TV on Wednesday. Image may be subject to copyright. Click image to enlarge.

How do you live with yourselves knowing that you could have saved the lives of at least some of the people listed below, and many other dead victims who are not listed here, as well as preventing thousands more from receiving serious injuries?

How can you justify to your kids or family, if you have any, that by simply doing nothing to suppress information posted on this and other blogs, you could have allowed the parents of now orphaned kids to make  informed decisions concerning the safety of their travel plans, places they visit and activities they carry out?

How many are there amongst you who can find the courage and integrity to reply to this open letter, acknowledging your complicity in so many deaths and injuries, apologizing to the victims’ families and undertaking to NO longer censor information that could save lives, regardless of your monetary interests?


Libby Templeman … her body was found in undergrowth. She may have still been alive today, if her parents could have make an informed decision concerning their immigration based on all the information that should have been available, but Google suppressed.

British tourist Emily Jordan was killed tragically, though avoidably.  later she became the laughing stock of the people whose negligence led to her death.

There are hundreds of other people who died unnecessarily, at least some of whom could have still been alive, if Google had not prevented the safety information posted on this and other blogs from reaching them.

See listing at :

A Token List of Some of the Injury Victims:

There are many hundreds of people who needlessly receive life-threatening injuries, at least some of which could have been prevented had Google allowed vital safety information posted on this and other blogs to reach them.

This blog posts important information that could help save the lives of many Americans and other nationalities. However, Google prevents the vital news and analysis from reaching the potential victims.

Eyjafjallajökull Eruption Gradually Intensifying

Posted by feww on May 16, 2010

Eruption Turning Darker, Plume Height Increasing

According to the latest assessment released by the Icelandic Met Office (IMO), the volcanic plume from Eyjafjallajökull is gray, occasionally reaching a height of 8km (27,000 feet) a.s.l. and drifting in a southerly direction.

IMO reported ashfall south of Eyjafjallajökull glacier and ash drift moving to southeast of the volcano.

A swarm of at least 30 volcanic earthquakes occurred beneath Eyjafjallajökull in a 3-hour period starting  at 23:54 (UTC) striking at a depth of about 20km, with the average magnitude of less than 2.0Mw. The swarm was followed  by more sporadic tremors in the morning.

“No major changes are seen in the activity, the ash cloud is slightly higher than yesterday. Presently there are no indications that the eruption is about to end.” IMO said.  For additional details, see status report.

British Airspace Closure

British airspace may have to close partially from Sunday at least until Tuesday to avoid the risk of volcanic ash from Eyjafjallajökull eruption which is drifting south from Iceland, the UK Department for Transport said.

The closure may include Heathrow airport, Europe’s busiest, the authorities said.

“Due to continuing volcanic activity in Iceland and prevailing weather conditions, there is — if the volcano continues to erupt at current levels — a risk of UK airspace closures,” the government said.
