Fire Earth

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

BP GOM Oil Plumes Spinning Out of Sight

Fast-eating species of microbes ate a Manhattan-sized oil plume spewed from BP Macondo well: Report

REALLY? DID THEY EAT THE DISPERSANTS, TOO?

“The micro-organisms were apparently stimulated by the massive oil spill that began in April, and they degraded the hydrocarbons so efficiently that the plume is now undetectable, said Terry Hazen of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory,” according to a dubious report.

IF YOU DON”T BELIEVE IT SEE PHOTO BELOW!!

Which one of you greedy guys ate all the oil?

Is this serendipstickity or what? How about another  “independent” report to back this fantastic news up?

WORRY NOT! The intrepid NOAA scientists, having started a 3-week mission on August 18,  are conducting their Operation Dip**** [Dipstick.]

“We’re looking for hydrocarbons to see how things in the deepwater column are changing,” Tom Weber, chief scientist aboard the 35-meter boat Pisces, said. “Ever since the well has been capped, we haven’t seen that much.”

REALLY?

So the other scientists who don’t work directly for the govt must be lying!!!

University of Georgia researchers have reported that more than 75 percent the oil from the Macondo well disaster still lurks below the water in the Gulf of Mexico and threatens the ecosystem.
