Oil Spill Exaggerated, Pretext for Corexit?

by Ken Price
(for henrymakow.com)

The story from Mathew Simmons (that the oil well was never capped and was still raging at full speed) has been deemed to be a misleading fraud. [Price & Makow.com fell for it. Apologies]  It looks like the purpose of his “disclosure” was to get us to believe that the major cause of death in the gulf region is from methane gas and abiotic oil, WHEN IN FACT, the cause of death is corexit.

It now looks like we do not have an oil leak at all but a tar leak.  I will be following up on this, but as you continue reading you will find good reason to believe that what has actually been leaking is from an asphalt volcano, and this could have been a normal seepage of such material.  Asphalt is consumed by microbes and does not pose a threat to the oceans nor sea life.  In fact, it provides billions of lower food-chain building blocks.

So this is what we have left to go on at the moment:

1.  Corexit is lethal.  It has been tested in the Valdez disaster and it is known to dramatically reduce the lives of all humans who work around it and breathe it.  It should never have been used again.

2.  Continue to stay away from areas along the shoreline.  Do not swim in the waters.

3.  There is a massive media illusion being fed to the public.  This has been brought to light by the following:

Faked pictures of the well supposedly being capped.

Faked pictures of the BP supposed “command center”.

Zero callbacks have been made from the supposed BP “help center”

Ground cleanup crews leaving the scene within an hour of the president’s departure of the area he visited.

Up to two feet of hauled-in sand being dumped on beaches in front of resorts during the night for photo ops the next day looking ok.

Public access denied at most beaches along with speaking with any cleanup workers, flying over the gulf region, photographing BP or workers, access to records (how much dispersants, what’s in it, etc.).

Few people know anything about thousands of workers who have become ill working along the shores and off shore in boats.

What a fact finding mess!

4.  Very little oil has hit the gulf coast beaches and this is after days of prevailing winds from the south.   So if the oil was ever there in the first place, dispersant or not, it would be reaching the shores now.  What has reached the shore has been mostly tar, and overall, after all this time, the amounts have been minuscule.  Some of the pictures have shown the “oil” to be reddish, others have shown it to be white. more here…

From Truthout-Health Hazards in Gulf Warrant Evacuations

“When Louisiana residents ask marine toxicologist and community activist Riki Ott what she would do if she lived in the Gulf with children, she tells them she would leave immediately. “It’s that bad. We need to start talking about who’s going to pay for evacuations.”

In 1989, Ott, who lives in Cordova, Alaska, experienced firsthand the devastating effects of the Exxon Valdex oil disaster. For the past two months, she’s been traveling back and forth between Louisiana and Florida to gather information about what’s really happening and share the lessons she learned about long-term illnesses and deaths of cleanup workers and residents. In late May, she began meeting people in the Gulf with symptoms like headaches, dizziness, sore throats, burning eyes, rashes and blisters that are so deep, they’re leaving scars. People are asking, “What’s happening to me?”

She says the culprit is almost two million gallons of Corexit, the dispersant BP is using to break up and hide the oil below the ocean’s surface. “It’s an industrial solvent. It’s a degreaser. It’s chewing up boat engines off-shore. It’s chewing up dive gear on-shore. Of course it’s chewing up people’s skin. The doctors are saying the solvents are making the oil worse.”

In a widely watched YouTube video, from Project Gulf Impact, a project that aims to give Gulf residents a voice, Chris Pincetich, a marine biologist and campaigner with the Sea Turtle Restoration Project, said Coast Guard planes are flying overhead at night spraying Corexit on the water and on land.” more here…
