"CAUTION: Envirowhackjobs On The Loose?


Last Edited: June 10, 2010, 4:32 pm

After finding this article with video I pulled two other articles I'd posted which leaned toward sensationalism without investigation. 

Thank you Mr. Denninger for setting the record straight.

"CAUTION: Envirowhackjobs On The Loose?

Reported by Bloomberg, CNBS, and everyone else - without first checking the facts:

Earlier we published speculation from satellite analytics group SkyTruth that there may be a second leak in the Gulf. A freelance pilot and photographer confirmed these rumors and a possible coverup.

They then present the following video:

Yes, there's a leak there.

But there is neither a cover-up or anything new related to this.

From the MMS via NOLA:

The other, the Diamond Ocean Saratoga, is operated by Taylor Energy, which has been in the process of plugging and abandoning a Mississippi Canyon well where the platform was toppled during Hurricane Ivan. The Diamond Ocean Saratoga is the only one on the MMS list that is operating at a depth of less then 500 feet.

Hurricane Ivan was in 2004 and hit my house!

Diamond Offshore (NYSE: DO) along with Transocean (NYSE: RIG) are both getting trashed this morning in no small part, I presume, based on this "disclosure", even though it is not a disclosure at all but rather is a hit piece - the company in question is working to plug and abandon a damaged well that happened six years ago.

There is every reason to be skeptical and ask questions but the "mainstream tout TV hype-based media" ought to pay attention to their facts before reporting what clearly appears to be utter and complete crap.

We have enough to deal with in regards to the Deepwater Horizon rig that really did sink during a real drilling operation and really is spewing oil into the water due to what appears to be human hubris - and needs to be plugged.

Casting aspersions on the companies that are fixing existing damage from a storm that happened some time ago and, it appears, painting their operations in a false light, along with alleging a "coverup" where a quick check of the facts appears to show precisely the opposite, is not "journalism" - it is sensational garbage that has no basis in reality.

I might have the wrong rig, but given that this is a specific exemption to the "tools up" call from MMS, I sorta doubt it.

Go after the real bad guys, not God and definitely not those men and women who are trying to mitigate damage done by God, not man."

not a coverup?...who are they kidding? An act of God is a good reason not to tell anyone we got oil leaking and and are pouring dangerous chemicals in the water? 6 years and they can't fix the problem? go after the real bad guys? How much food was consumed with trace oils and dispersant? Seems to me they are the real human hubris!

Thanks Sully! We need to dig deeper as to when they began capping off that well that's still leaking. In so far as I know Denninger checks his facts pretty well and have every reason to believe that he wouldn't defend something indefensible. He lives in Niceville FL so has every reason to be concerned over the overall impact of the Gulf spill. MSM sensationalism may be a a distraction to hard core facts about an unparalleled tragedy.

Good point Konane, I think the entire mess has my blood boiling to the point of no return. you know I did get some tums LOL.

More will be revealed.

Thanks Sully! I've been grabbing antacid tabs more frequently and if I still smoked cigarettes my computer room would likely look like a forest fire since the spill.   Most people with two neurons to fire back and forth are very concerned over long term ramifications ... most of all complacency and rampant incompetence in Washington.

Thanks TigerAngel! Yes it's hard as heck to keep a lid on secrets now. It's not just the internet but a change in earth energies causing secrets to pop out at the most inopportune times from those who intend to operate out of view.

Call me a paranoid freakazoid, I don't care....lol....but I think this whole thing was just another intentional method used by the shadow government/elite, to further their agenda by creating more distress on the economy, and finalizing their ultimate goal of eventually eliminating 80% of the population. This is just the beginning.

What I find interesting, and most folks don't know this, on the day of the explosion, a lot of the execs were on the rig celebrating the great safety record of the rig.

Thanks Joker! Considering all non-msm reports out there pointing in the direction you're talking about you may be onto something. You're intuitive from stuff you've said in the past so your feelings may be correct.   Yes I read somewhere they were on the rig celebrating.
