Gaia's Toxic Intravenous Drip in The Mexican
Oil is toxic to Mother Earth (Gaia).
< Previous | Next >
Some 2.3 million tonnes of oil hydrocarbons find their way
into the world's oceans annually.
Toxic Hydrocarbons Intravenously injected into Gaia
Scientists estimate 260,000 tons come from natural seepage
through the ocean bed, but the majority portion, 2 million tonnes
of toxic seepage, is caused by humans.
Aquatic life and water fowl are
being destroyed in frightening numbers.
In spring 2010, the worst human-caused ecological disaster
exploded in the Gulf of Mexico injecting Gaia with a toxic
intravenous feed of unknown magnitude.
Gaia can handle a small amount of toxic oil seepage into it's
oceans by using oxidation, sedimentation and microbial
degradation. The current levels far exceed earth life's ability
to cope and much life in the immediate area is ended. The worst
is yet to come as the toxins pour into the ocean and begin to
spread around the world.
Gaia's latest tragedy began when "Deepwater Horizon", a
deep-sea drilling rig located not far from Louisiana, New Orleans
in the Gulf of Mexico exploded in April, killing 11 people.
Known as the MC 252 well, located in 5,067 ft of water about 50 miles from
the coast of Louisiana, its drilling crews were planning to leave the site in
order for a well completion rig to come in and prepare the well to go into
production, but many things had been going wrong by then
Explosion No Surprise).
British Petroleum (BP), owned 30% by Americans, and the
government's of all oil-producing nations in the world are to
blame for the current massive Mexican Gulf deep sea oil
Nationalistic policies of government-controlled oil companies
have forced global corporations like ExxonMobile and British
Petroleum to seek product in the far reaches of the deep sea.
British Petroleum has been forced to take huge risks in the Gulf
of Mexico to stay in business while under tremendous pressure
That's not good. BP has a bad safety record and a
questionable corporate moral code of conduct. BP hasbeen
crticized in the media for incomplete maintenance and crappy
equipment A blast at a refinery in Texas City, in 2005 killed 15
workers. A 2006 Alaskan pipeline spill occurred four years after
BP had been warned about their corroded pipelines. BP pleaded
guilty to felony counts in the Texas blast and a misdemeanour
charge in the Alaska oil spill. In recent years BP has paid $485
million in fines and settlements to the U.S. government for
environmental offences, neglect of workers' health and safety
plus financial penalties for manipulating energy markets.
Despite the substantial U.S. stake in British Petroleum U.S.
President Obama stresses the "British" in British Petroleum's
name and does nothing but spin doctoring and craftily worded
promises that things will get better. But the actual work has
been done by American companies Transocean and Halliburton, two
very familiar names in the media, renown as corporate "bad
Transocean is the contractor that owned and ran the drilling
rig that burned and sank after the well blew on April 20, killing
11 workers. Halliburton is the company that did the cementing job
that was supposed to close off the well.
Obama's performance in this crisis has been "tacky" at best as
his public relations gurus pray for Tiger Woods' love life or
Lady Gaga's genetalia to gain the front page again and make
Not gonna happen. Killing aquatic life and shore life in this
scale is unforgettable. This could be the beginning of the end of
life on earth as we know it.
The U.S. should be pouring $billions into a clean-up and if it
means pulling every soldier, gun and tank out of Iraq to achieve
that end and protect the American people, then so be it.
As the millions of barrels of oil sludge spread in the Gulf and
hit the shores, marine habitats, beaches, wildlife and human
health are destroyed or endangered.
Bird Dying at Deepwater Horizon
While some pundits claim that British Petroleum drilling
policy is at fault, it is no less true that no project
engineering team would ever overlook the installation of a
failsafe shut-off plan. If the executive management of the
British Petroleum and it's government liaisons were not given
such a failsafe by their technical planners, either because none
was available or the cost was too prohibitive, then the drilling
project should never have proceeded even by the existing
standards which are far too lax.
Oil sludge reaches shore.
In the case of the "Deepwater Horizon" drilling platform
operating over a mile below the Gulf's surface, there was not
enough data nor technology background to proceed with the
undertaking without massive risk.
Under tremendous pressure from the U.S. government to reduce it's
sovereignty-crushing dependency on foreign supplied oil, British
Petroleum proceeded with risky ventures without any safety backup
plan for this current type of problem.
The tragic disaster which took those innocent souls aboard
"Deepwater Horizon" and which is now killing an unprecedented
amount of aquatic life and threatening human lifestyle, tells us
that it's time to end our dependency on fossil fuels.
Unfortunately the message goes unheeded because oil is bling--the
new gold in the middle of a zany Oil-is-Gold Rush--politicians
and their oil executive pimps are throwing caution to the wind.
They are killing the root of all earth's life. They are killing
their children's children while they amass short-term political
power and line pockets with gold.
At the forefront, British Petroleum has vigorously attacked the
problem tasking some 22,000 employees with finding a solution and
doing a clean up. The company has spent roughly a billion dollars
in its efforts by May's end and has made an admirable effort
without assistance from the oil-thirsty, responsible, North
American governments which have failed to insist that technology
for handling such emergencies be developed before the risks were
Meanwhile the U.S. government which--along with all other
oil-producing nationals--uses oil as a strategic sovereignty
weapon, in parallel with it's massive budgets for bombing cities
and occupying countries, has barely spent a dime. That must

have been unveiled for using dispersant in the ocean water to
breakdown and distribute the sludge throughout a larger area of
ocean which would make the job of Gaia somewhat easier but
prolonged thus killing more aquatic life more slowly.
This exercise is a massive chemistry experiment without precedent
that British Petroleum makes at our risk. It has never been done
before, putting dispersant into the flow of a submersed well
leak. 870,000 gallons of Corexit made by Nalco had been used by
May 25 and that likely saved a
lot of beaches from being visibly damaged.
The goal of using the
dispersant is to make the damage invisible, but the result is a
large area of clear (slightly clouded) lifeless,
hydrocarbon-rich, de-oxygenated water with a few new toxins
added, replaces healthy ocean waters and sparse patches of crude
Dispersant like the brands made by two foremost chemical
companies in the dispersant business, Accepta and Nalco, are a
cocktail of ingredients, some toxic, comprising a proprietary
formula. No two original brands are the same.
Dispersant is used to minimize the visible impact of a massive
hydrocarbon polluting event in ocean waters. The hydrocarbons of
the spill are broken apart creating a much larger area of only
lightly clouded, de-oxygenated water with lower toxicity in PPMs
(particles per millions) spread over more than ten times the area
of the original contaminant. (Most dispersant is packaged in a
ten parts to one concentration although it can be much more
widely dispersed over time and in a larger body of churning
water, i.e.: hurricanes!).
The choice of toxic dispersant is made on the basis of what
species to protect at the expense of others, and what will most
readily hide the problem. The problem does not go away.
Dispersal of the toxins won't save Gaia from dying a little more
at the hands of human greed in this current disaster.
The biosphere and physical parts of the Earth (atmosphere,
cryosphere, hydrosphere and lithosphere) are assembled together
forming a complex interacting system acting in a homoeostatic
fashion to preserves climatic and bio-geo-chemical conditions on
Earth, suitable for living organisms.
This current disaster will change the lifestyle of all humans and
will kill life on earth in some considerable measure.
Are we really sure that we want to continue greedily puncturing
oil holes in the deep sea beds, in the seven oceans including the
