Massive Stretches Of “Weathered” BP Oil Spotted In Gulf Of Mexico

The BP Gulf of Mexico oil disaster continues! – SJH

Just three days after the U.S. Coast Guard admiral in charge of the BP oil spill cleanup declared little recoverable surface oil remained in the Gulf of Mexico, Louisiana fishers Friday found miles-long strings of weathered oil floating toward fragile marshes on the Mississippi River delta.

The discovery, which comes as millions of birds begin moving toward the region for the annual fall seasonal migration, gave added ammunition to those groups that have insisted the government has overstated clean-up progress, and could force reclosure of key fishing areas only recently reopened.

The oil was sighted in West Bay, which covers approximately 35 square miles of open water between Southwest Pass, the main shipping channel of the river, and Tiger Pass near Venice. Boat captains working the BP clean-up effort said they have been reporting large areas of surface oil off the delta for more than a week but have seen little response from BP or the Coast Guard, which is in charge of the clean-up. The captains said most of their sightings have occurred during stretches of calm weather, similar to what the area has experienced most of this week.

On Friday reports included accounts of strips of the heavily weathered orange oil that became a signature image of the spill during the summer. One captain said some strips were as much as 400 feet wide and a mile long. The captains did not want to be named for fear of losing their clean-up jobs with BP.

Coast Guard officials Friday said a boat had been dispatched to investigate the sightings, but that a report would not be available until Saturday morning. However, Times-Picayune photojournalist Matt Hinton confirmed the sightings in an over-flight of West Bay. Robert Barham, secretary of the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, said if the sightings are confirmed by his agency, the area will be reclosed to fishing until it is confirmed oil-free again.

Just Tuesday, Coast Guard Rear Adm. Paul Zukunft, in charge of the federal response, and his top science adviser, Steve Lehmann, said that little of the 210 million gallons of oil spilled into the Gulf remained on the surface or even on the Gulf’s floor. Lehmann pointed to extensive tests conducted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration that included taking samples of water from various depths, as well as collections of bottom sediments both far offshore and close to the coast.

Those claims, announced on the six-month anniversary of the spill, brought quick rebuttals from a variety of environmental and fishermen’s groups who insist their members have been reporting sightings of surface oil all along.

LSU environmental sciences professor Ed Overton, who has been involved in oil spill response for 30 years, said he believes both claims could be accurate. The Louisiana sweet crude from the Deepwater Horizon is very light and has almost neutral buoyancy, Overton said, which means that when it picks up any particles from the water column, it will sink to the bottom.

“It’s quite possible that when the weather calms and the water temperatures changes, the oil particles that have spread along the bottom will recoagulate, then float to the surface again and form these large mats…I say this is a possibility, because I know that the (Coast Guard) has sent boats out to investigate these reports, but by the time they get to the scenes, the weather has changed and they don’t see any oil.”

“I think the reports are credible, but I also think the incident responders are trying to find the oil, too,” Overton said. “This is unusual, but nothing about this bloody spill has been normal since the beginning.”

Overton said it is important for the state to discover the mechanism that is causing the oil to reappear because even this highly weathered oil poses a serious threat to the coastal ecology. “If this was tar balls floating around, that would be one thing, but these reports are of mats of weathered oil, and that can cause serious problems if it gets into the marsh,” he said

The reports are a great concern to wildlife officials. The Mississippi delta is a primary wintering ground for hundreds of thousands of ducks and geese, some of which already have begun arriving. The West Bay area leads into several shallower interior bays that attract ducks, geese and myriad species of shore and wading birds each winter.

Earlier this month state wildlife officials were expressing optimism the spill would have minimal impact on most waterfowl visitors because little oil had penetrated the sensitive wintering grounds.

Revelation 8: Gulf Oil Catastrophe

The Tonka Report Editor’s Note: As the US government and their media presstitutes have all but buried any news concerning the ongoing disaster in the Gulf, Florida Oil Spill Law continues to tirelessly cover the tragedies. Below are just some of the stories from the past few days– SJH

  2. Fleur,

    My old friend, I’m relieved to receive news that my fellow patriots north of the border are still alive and kicking. Keep me updated on the progress of the new site. Meanwhile, I’ll hold down the fort here in Chicago…

    Peace and God bless… No Fear!!

  3. Question for the globalists: What is the purpose of willfully destroying all that you wish to confiscate for yourselves.

  4. Clueless,

    The Gulf will eventually heal, even if it could take generations or longer, if we even have that long left here on earth.

    But the globalists with their massive seed banks such as in Svaalbard, Norway are hiding in their enclaves as humanity itself is being decimated in innumerable and diabolical ways.

    That is their goal, and they are willing to destroy everything to accomplish it.

    Their god, Apollyon from Revelation 9:11 [imagine that – 9/11], otherwise known as the angel Lucifer, or Satan, is the great destroyer… It is a spiritual war!

  5. Yes, but there are things that cannot be stored in Svaalbard, such as blue whales, coral reef, and jellyfish. Did they ever think about that. Or is Svaalbard a cryonic chamber for animal life as well.

    Has their “god,” the great destroyer, ever been proven to create anything. What makes the globalists think that their “god” (satan) loves them. Does a loving god work tirelessly to destroy all of creation? What convinces the globalists that they are somehow “safe” from Satan. Finally, why would anyone chose to follow a defeated power.

  6. Clueless,

    Excellent questions and all very valid points leading one to just shake their head. However, let’s take a deeper look with some brief analysis:

    It could be that they have the genetic code for nearly all animal life at this juncture. If so, theoretically they could repopulate animal life in the aftermath of some catastrophic event through genetic engineering.

    It’s also entirely possible that they have vast underground “farms” and aquariums. As we know, they already have millions of seeds to replenish plant life.

    Now to the really tough questions:

    The Bible states that Satan will be transformed as an angel of light. The globalist religion (occult) believes that Satan is the true god through his seductive gifts of arcane knowledge and magic, as well as sex, money, power and fame.

    There is also something many entirely overlook…

    There are two distinct bloodlines at war: that of Cain, “who was of that wicked one,” [I John 3:12], and that of Seth. This is why so much bloodshed and war is scattered throughout the Old Testament.

    Satan seduced Woman [Eve] who bore Cain. Abel was from the Spirit of Jesus Christ before He was manifest in the flesh through Adam’s seed.

    Bear in mind that Adam was not the first man created, he was the first man formed with a living soul. The first creation occurred in Genesis 1:27. Those are the tribes that Cain went off to populate with Satan’s seed.

    Abel was murdered to prevent the bloodline from reaching the prophecy of the birth and sacrifice of Christ. But then Seth was born to carry on the bloodline.

    Throughout the Bible these attempts to prevent prophecy by Satan occur, eg. Herod ordering the murder of all boys 2 years and younger. However, Joseph was warned beforehand by an angel to flee to Egypt with Mary and Jesus.

    I could get much more detailed with resources but the time it takes is overwhelming. All of this and more is outlined in detail in a manuscript I’ve written.

    The bottomline is that this is a spiritual war between the bloodline of Satan and the bloodline of Christ, being fought right here on earth through we the people.

    Hope that helps…
